Smaller than the standard bow, the Shortbow is cheap and easy to manufacture. The only drawback is that it has a reduced range. Some horsemen use shortbows because they are easier to manage while mounted. Halflings, when driven to fight, rely on shortbows as they find them more suited to their size. The finest shortbows are manufactured in Kislev, where they are crafted for use by the famous Ungol Horse Archers. These warriors are all trained to fire arrows from horseback at a very early age and are famous throughout the Old World for being the fastest cavalry and most accurate archers, aside from Elves, in the world. They typically ride in circles around their enemies, peppering them with arrows, dropping them by the score, before closing in for the kill.[2a]
