Hi, I've been looking around for a thread that specifically answers my question about the "Rage" rule, but haven't turned anything up yet.
Q: If your unit is subject to the rage special rule and is not currently engaged in an assault, falling back, in a vehicle, or some other state that would naturally prevent you from assaulting, can you launch an assault on the closest enemy?
So, this problem has arisen for me because Hormagaunts are not constantly subject to the rule, but only after they suffer instinctive behavior. Can any help answer the question. Too me it would just make sense that if a unit is really in a rage!?!!!! they probably wouldn't hover 1inch from the enemy, but instead assault said enemy and try to crush them into sticky goo.
If you're not allowed to assault, then you can't assault.

So, no particular units are always subject to this rule?
Does anyone use a unit that is subject to the rage special rule that can inform me with how they play it?
Forums that have answered the question:
These forums have said that since an assault is not disallowed by the rule then you can, but since it is not stated you are not compelled to assault and do not have to assault the closest unit.
Is that the consensus here or what do you all think about the "rage" rule.

Well, looks like you MUST move towards the closest (visible) enemy, you MUST run towards the nearest (visible) enemy (if you choose to run), but you don't have to assault (but if you do and win, you MUST consolidate towards the nearest (visible) enemy). However, generally your going to want to assault them, and all normal rules apply for assault movement.
