Say a unit assualts a squad that is staggered can a member of the aSUALTERS WHO CAME WITHIN 2 INCHES OF THE FISRT MODEL OF THE UNIT CONTINUE ON IF HE HAS MOVEMENT AND ASSUALT MODELS past that model.
I will try to make an exampl pic below sorry about the caps
+ is assualting model
- is assualted model
+ Now this model is in cc with model directly below would he be able to continue on say to
-+here or would he have to stay in cc with first model he encountered?
The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.
Are you those people?
I believe the answer is no. You must assault closest to closest. So you can stagger down the line like this:
Why didn't you erase what you wrote and retype it without caps?
"The internet perceives censorship as damage, and routes around it."
Closest to closest only applies to the first model to charge in the assault. You can move the rest of the squad wherever you want to so long as each model moved maintains coherency with the previous model that you moved. They do have to get into assault range if possible, but you don't have to get into base contact with the closest unengaged model anymore, that was 3rd edition.
Just out of curiousity, whats next? Maybe you can make an issue about the fact that GW didn't define the action of 'rolling' a D6 to actually mean dropping it in such a manner as to produce a random result; thus making it perfectly acceptable to just put them down with the face up of your choice?
