Hi all, these 2 situations came up tonight:
1- My Ellyrian Reavers were 16" away from a line of handgunners, and my mage was 11" behind them with Howler Wind in play. my reavers declare a charge on the handgunners, question is, are the hund gunners allowed to stand and shoot on my reavers? and do they shoot as soon as my reavers come out of the Howler wind range? or do they shoot as soon as they are in "range" (which is immediately) and their shots are rendered harmless by the wind?
2- The illustration shows Volkmar intending to charge, and I placed my Eagle to protect Tyrion (I know he doesn't need it, but wanted to be safe) like so:
Assuming he can't draw a line to Tyrion without hitting the eagle, and he's forced to charge the eagle, and my eagle flees.
Does Volkmar have to charge in a line from his center to the eagle's center along path A? or can he charge straight ahead in path B?
1. Once the charging unit is found to be in range, the stand and shoot occurs. So the wind would protect them.
2. Path A. Charging is worked out center to center. Path B was done away with in 7th. edition; in 6th. edition you could redirect. Now it's Enemy in the Way, meaning any enemy in the path that the fleeing model takes and you take directly after that fleeing model.
about the 1st points
the spell says "If successfully cast, no shooting with strength 4 or less can be targeted at a unite within 12" of the wizard"
if you can't target them is the same as out of range so I don't think the shooting will take place till they can target them if the spell said all shooting will miss then I agree with you.
Can't target them isn't the same as out of range. If you waited until they were out of the spell range, then they wouldn't be at the maximum range of the missile weapons, another stipulation in the stand and shoot criteria. So I would go with Dave's original answer.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
