I Like how you have worded this so that, even if unintentional, it swings both ways. For if the mount is dead and the rider falls or for if the mount and rider fall because of another reason (Spiders or nets preventing flying).
What if Deja Vu...

Well spotted Trish :) Yes I have tried to make this rule as universal as possible, as each time it will come in to play, there could be a different reason why a flying piece is forced to land or crash. Though I believe Spider webs force a flying model or a group of them to land, not crash.

And now you should have about 200pts to play about with in the future too with that kind of Restless Army coming down in points, but they will always be an expensive list to field in battle.

As you can see, to counter the Restless, my army was a very infantry based one, with no real fluffy units like the Free Riders or War Dogs, as they would just run against the undead. I rarely use heavier cavalry against the Restless, because I use them for punching through enemy lines, which is nearly impossible to do against the Restless with them being undead, and so unbreakable.

Yeah and if you compare the undead then you realise I didn't have any elite fighting units besides my cavalry as those cavalry are bloody expensive lol

Ye but, your Ethereal Cavalry is pretty nasty stuff, during the game I was really worried about it, as I did really have anything to counter it.
