If you have a character mixed in with a normal unit and the character has hit modifiers, strength modifiers, etc...based on Magic Items that it is armed with...Do you get to use these to modify your opponents actions if they do not state which models are attcking what at the beginning of CC?
Dark Elf Assasin in front line or Corsairs Vs. Chaos Sorcerer in front line of Warriors. Corsairs charge, Assasin is touching both the Sorcerer's base the base of a Warrior but the opposing player does not nominate which model the Assasin is attacking. Do we decide where the hits are distributed in this case to reap the benefits of the Magic Items if we so choose? Or is the opposing player assumed to have attacked the Unit (being the Warriors in this example) and all To Hit and To Wound rolls are against the Warriors only?
This has happened time and again in little skirmishes and I always get the "Oh yeah he was attacking that guy" line. (Thank goodness it's only friendly matches).
Unless you state otherwise all your attacks are assumed to go against rank and file members of a unit. If you want to strike a character or champion, you have to explicitly state that before you roll your attacks.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Sirkently has the right of it. If people do it frequently don't let them and explain the rule. They will soon remember!
The only time this doesn't apply is if the item affects all models/units in base contact then well it does exactly what it says on thetin really. An example of this would be the mark of nurgle which affects models in base contact. Or the nurgle banner which affects only those touching it etc.
Ah I see. Thanks for the corrections guys. I'll make sure to point that out in my next 1k point skirmish.
Remeber, also, that your Sorcerer HAS to issue a challenge (unless someone else already has) and he'll probably end up fighting the Assassin anyway unless you throw some unfortunate in his way first.
