Came up in my very first WH40K game this weekend. Nids (me) vs. Tau...
Two FireWarrior squads, one five inches behind the other. Hormagaunts assualt the front squad, get 21 attacks, kill 4 of 8, and take one wound back. FireWarriors break back 7", I pursue 11".
So, what happens:
a. They flee 'through' the friendly unit behind them, and I can't catch them since I end up doing a sweeping advance into the rear unit.
b. They are destroyed since my roll exceeded theirs, and then the sweeping advance as ususal.
I'm still learning, and I didn't see anything in the rules or FAQs that specifically covered this.
Thanks for your help!
Yes, he's right. Seems a rather stupid rule though, as if they saw their comrades running away, they would help them straight away, not continue to shoot at their target, so they would be ready for the attackers, so should be able to fire at or mount a charge IMO.
I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That's my dream. That's my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight... razor... and surviving.
with the new experimental rules i think you would have just kept them in close combat with you and you would have piled in... I think...
