Okay, I have a question.
If I am on floor 2 of a building, and an enemy comes along and attempts to assault, and all my men are on floor 2, leaving no room, can they assault?
What about if the enemy has a defiler or a dreadnaught that cannot fit on the floor? can it assault? Am I safe?
I encounter this frequently, as we enjoy urban terrain. I believe it's a matter of house ruling... as this is a case where it is impossible to get in base-to-base, though doesn't necessarily make much sence. Then again, moving forward and up 6" in difficult terrain without a staircase or ladder doesn' t make much sense either.
Strictly speaking, the unit packed so tightly that there is no additional space on the second floor cannot be assaulted unless it has models downstairs and upstairs that are able to be assaulted (BGB 37).
One solution is to role for difficult terrain and, if the assault move is far enough, demarcate models that moved far enought to reach the next floor with a die or counter. We usually allow only one model to be demarcated this way, and assume the other models in the assaulting unit are downstairs and within a 2" kill box (even if the floor is 3" up).
If you're encountering this problem regularly you should probably be using Cities of Death rules =). Buildings are a total abstraction in the core 40K rules. The best thing to do is just use a top down view and ignore height differences as long as there's adequate movement to cover the height. Otherwise, use CoD or write a sheet of house rules for each terrain piece =)
Okay... But the person who does this owns the CoD codex. Can someone please give me
a. the page number of where I can find the rules to resolve that.
b. The exact wording of the rule to resolve that.
