Ok Blood Frenzy says you must move towards the nearest unit.
Do you define 'towards' as:
a. move the shortest possible distance to reach the closest unit (moving to 1" away).
b. Moving anywhere you want as long as all available models end the move as close as possible (1" away).
This mattered a great deal a few games back when a khorne prince with berserker glaive was forced to frenzy into my falcon. I claimed he had to run straight into its side armour whereas he argued he could run around to the back as long as he could reach it in his frenzy move (which he could and did).
I would wholy agree with you at option a.
B just sounds like bending the rules to me...
Bending the rules? If I had my way he would have been forced into hitting on 6, glancing on 6 killing on double 5 for the rest of the game. Bit tight (especially since my fire dragons inside start melting his anti-tank with no prince to help).
It says "Directly towards your enemy", which to me means in a straight line, no fancy schmancy angles and stuff like that.
That's how my brother and I play, it has to be in a straight, direct line. Never has he tried to get around that. I go with RAW.
Bending the rules, when you bow the rules so that they work in your favour and most likly opposes the designers original idea, like option B suggests.
You know, when you are bending something?
as a Black Templar player I also frequently need to rush headlong towards the enemy. Direct line is the way the rules seem to lean, since it is a move that ignores difficult ter. it is usually a simple shift of the unit. However, a grey area is in city fight, or multi-level terrain. say you are on level 2, your rage/zeal/ect is 3-6 inches (ie enough to move a level), should you be required to exit floor up/down/choice? fluff wise i can see both; down to "rush into CC", up to "get a better view". any thoughts?
I am a Blood angels player. In the BA codex it is quite clearly stated that the black rage move must end up closer to the enemy. The word towards is used here aswell...
I'm sorry I can't give an actual reference, but I remember reading something, and I'm pretty sure (but not positive) it was official, about "towards the enemy" meaning that as long as you end your move closer to the enemy then you began, you were good.
Note" 'towards the enemy' is much different then 'towards the nearest enemy'. 'towards the nearest enemy' is moving towards the closest enemy the quickest possable way.
