Hi, I am sorry to bring up a silly question, but I've just got into Fantasy for a week, and even though I've read through the rulebook a couple times I may still have missed an answer to this.
How is "Look out, Sir" rule affecting Skimirshers? For example, I have a Hero attached to a Skimirsher unit which is being shot by a cannon aimming straight for him. The rulebook said something about a Rank & File unit may call out "Look out, Sir" to avoid the character from being killed.
Do Skimirshers benefit from such rule? and what exactly is this Rank & File word that I keep seeing in the rulebook.. other than the rank bonus of having more than 10 models in a unit that line up in rows of 5's.
Since there is nothing stated about skirmishers and 'Lookout, Sir!' they provide the roll just like any other unit, provided the other prerequisites (enough models) are met.
Only thing of note is that not all Character can join them (only models on foot with US1)
As for the rank bonus: yep, basically you've got it right (although I must admit I don't quite get what your question in that regard is :cry: ) apart from: they can also be wider than 5 models and you can get up to +3 for three (or more) ranks behind the front line, unless the unit is fast cavalry or skirmishers.
And some Armies have several special gadgets regarding ranks (like empire has a magic banner which doubles the rank bonus, skaven units can add their current rank bonus to their ld tests, beastmen gor units generat a rank bonus despite being skirmishers and so on)
Also, slap your opponent in the face for picking out a charater in a unit with a cannon. That's one hell of a big Hochland long rifle...:rolleyes:
p.s. Cool sig!
Skirmishers and Look out Sir is covered in the latest GW rulebook FAQ.
