Kraye and his Calvary rules

In what ways could or would you guys abuse the fact that kraye gives his jacks Calvary rules. Was wondering if you have seen or can think of some crazy stuff you could do with it

With Kraye all jacks in his battle group become cavalry. With that your light jacks become light cavalry. So some evilness you could do is forfit move to get an aiming bonus, then move five inches with the jack once it is done with its action. Also a light jack in melee could use the movement to reposition to let another jack charge in, just dont leave the opponents front arc if you fear a free strike.
With heavy jacks they become cavalry. This means that when they charge they do ride by attacks. (basically getting a free attack against an enemy that is between you and your target) they also recieve a +2 to melee attack rolls against thier charge targets.
The best thing of being cavalry are ride by attacks. You break up their move into two parts and take your combat action in between. Meaning if you have a spd of 6 you can move 4 take your combat action, then move two afterwards. Plus in this example if the jack is a light jack it gets a 5 inch advance at the end of its activation. Lots of mobility and evil going on with Kraye. All this without even touching his spell list and weapons and other special abilities.

I thought Cygnar casters were really underwhelming but the more and more i read about them they seem better then when i first looked over them and start to learn the game more

I still say trenchers are one of the best Cygnar units out there.

I agree Trenchers are great but expensive. There are also a few warjacks that gain benefits from them. I cant remember what they are called, it is a light warjack, but together they are nice.
The smoke clouds they can put out though are the best part of them. I think they can dig in also. Which is also a great rule.

Adding Grenadier 'jacks with trenchers is usually a pretty solid combo.
