Ok, a unit of genestealers is approaching my pathfinders. I use their devilfish to tankshock the 'stealers in an attempt to push them back. I basically park the tank 6" into their line hoping to push them back.
The stealers are in synapse so auto pass the moral check.
My opponent choses -not- to do DoG and moves the stealers out of the way instead, but moves them -closer- so that they are 1" away from the rear of the tank and closer to the Pfinders which or course I wasn't so happy about! He said they simply moved out of the way as the tank moved in, then back together after the tank passed by.
We finally changed it so my tank only moved halfway into the unit and pushed the stealers back 1" from where they were.
So I guess the question is, if a tank moves into a unit that passes leadership and doesn't DoG, which direction does the unit fall back? Does the opponent get to chose where the models are placed?
Also, if the tank moves through a unit, do they get pushed back or do they just move back where they were after the tank passes by?
Shortest distance while maintaining unit coherency.
He should be "gaining" ground on a Tankshock.
It would make Tankshock pointless.
Sig by:Knape, The Celestial, and Marlinspike, thanks guys!
that's why you don't tank shock through the unit, just the first model or two.Originally Posted by Shas'o Tau Dev'n Kauyon
If you tank shock a unit in a corner, they come out on the other side of your tank, thus gaining movement.
Another point when tank chocking, only the models that are moved over can DOG, meaning if you clip his dev squad, but hit one of the marines w/o a lascannon or powerfist, chances are he can't hurt you (and will probably declare DOG thinking he can use his PF or heavy weapons.).
