Moving too Close to Enemies

PostSat May 20, 2017 6:36 am

I could swear that I read a rule that you couldn't end your moving less than a minimum distance from the enemy. Am I just imagining it or does that rule actually exist somewhere? Thanks!

Maybe you are thinking of the LZ is Hot rule? Pg 44 of the main rule book v1.1. You cannot land a transport aircraft if there are enemies within 3" and LoS of the LZ Template. Beyond that there are no rules for being too close. It would make units armed with CC weapons very sad if they could not approach the enemy to engage them...

Maybe that was it. Maybe I am accidentally carrying rules over from Flames of War. We just had a scenario that seemed really cheesy. The shaltari player boxed in the scourge player's invader apc against a building for 3 turns with his kukris.

Nope, that's legal. There are no restrictions other than you must be able to place the model...

I just wish my hover crafts could ram other skimmers. Because let's face it, if they ram an actual tank they would fall apart ;-)
