In the rule book, it gives rules for staying 1" away from enemy models with one exception (p12). What came up in a game today was the following... In the below diagram, Y is a unit of dryads, Z is a unit of skaven, and X is a character:
Skaven charge the dryads and win combat, with the dryads subsequently failing their break test and running. Skaven pursue the dryads. The pursuit roll would take them to this position:
The pursuit line would have just barely missed the wood elf character (by a fraction of an inch). Would they end there move in that position as the pursuit is similar to a charge move (and bypass the 1" restriction), or would they stop 1" away from the wood elf character like so?
We couldn't find anything detailing this specific example in the book, so we dice rolled it off. Any page ref's that might deal with this scenario would be most appreciated.
The 1" rule says that units not in combat stay 1" away from each other. If the Skaven in your example didn't get into combat then they stop 1" away fromt eh cahracter otherwise they'd break the 1" rule.
So, yes they stop within 1". However, if they moved into Base Contact with him, then the 1"ule is ignored as they're in combat.
Okay, thanks.. that's what I figured, but we just weren't sure if the pursuit rule counted as a charge to ignore it or not.
Again- what you did seems fine.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
