So I've read the book a few times over and I cannot find an answer to his.. Well I think I did but I wanted to verify.
Can a lone model turn around and charge a unit in that is in its rear?
Now I would say no because it can only charge units in its front arc. However, I'm not 100% sure this is true because of this line -
"The one exception is thast a single model can pivot on the spot as many times as it wishes over the course of its move. It can do so without penalty and so pivoting does not prevent models from marching, or even shooting later in the turn." So no penalty, such as not being able to then charge (although it only says marching and shooting). But it seems it would only be able to pivot in a later part of the movement phase.
I know it cannot pivot during a charge as it says in the rules. I can only wheel like any other unit. However, can it pivot before it declares a charge as to put something that wasn't normally in its front arc within charging area?
I'm pretty sure this is no, but seeing how I had a large argument the other night about lone models always being able to 360 degree move, I want to be 100% sure.
Thanks ahead of time!
Your answer of no is correct. Though they can pivot as often as they like during movement, declaring charges happens before any movement. Therefore any charge target must start in the lone models front arc.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Awesome ok ty!
I would agree that it is no, because to pivot it would have to be in the normal movement phase in which the charge phase will have already passed. But a good question none the less
Unless the single model has random movement.
But then it is "treated as a charge", but it's not actually charging, right? You don;t get charge reactions, etc.
