Default 6Kn

Not many armies use 6Kn elements. Am I right: they can't be contacted fully on flank, so can't be destroyed on recoil due to a flanking unit facing its flank?

Nope. They are not immune to being flanked because their side edge is 60mm. Legal flank contact is the same with them as it is with a 30mm side edge -- the enemy has front-corner to front-corner contact and the full front of the attacking element (as far as physically possible) is in contact.

Default Thanks, Dave, so...

their primary benefit is retreating further from an enemy?

They look good?

Personally, I strongly recommend treating all 6Kn as Cataphracts. But that isn't in the rules as written.

Default Thanks

They do look good, but I'd rather win than look good...
