Quite a few of Trimaris' Archers train as Units all
year long, notably Sir Erica's. They are doing it now.

Also, remember that this list and alot of lists in
Ansteorra are pretty much open and Trimaris reads at
least some of them. If you are discussing actual
battle plans here, you might as well consider them as
being read by the Trimarians.
