Hi, some guy at my gaming club who have just started a dark elf army, told about this famillar that allows the bearer to cast a spell up to 6 inches away from the sorceress.
does this meen that the sorceress can be engaged in combat and stil cast spells???
Indeed it does, she can also cast from behind terrain.

next time grab his book and read the rules on it, that way you'll both remember it. I don't think I'd ever play a new guy without his book, unless I happened to have his army book memorized or someone else had their army book handy. This is how people get into arguments or have their feelings hurt, when they play by memory.
Yes. Focus Familiar is one of the best Arcane items in the Dark elf book if you ask me. Its only 25 points too. You place a marker (i use one of my power dice) anywhere 6 inches from the caster at the start of each magic phase. During that phase you can use the marker at any time for line of site, to cast from, or determine weather you count as in combat or not. Its great because you can keep her in cover from missile fire but at the same time be able to cast. My FAVORITE thing to do though is to try and get her inside of some trees early. That way I dont need line of site while inside of trees to cast from because I just use the Focus Familiar marker outside of the trees to do use for casting lol. And Its a good protection for her to by being inside of the trees since nobody else will have line of site on her. (by the way im saying her to refer to a sorceress)
i also love focus familiar the most annoying use its had against me is her sitting behind a hill out of line of sight and moving the familiar onto the hill to give him true line of sight. awesome
yeah its one of the most unique D.E. arcane items. no other army has something like it, unless I am mistaken. it's a shame we cannot take more than one arcane item. would be cool to take the sacrificial dagger AND the focus familiar.
As far as a Slann Mage-Priest is concerned, every skink priest within 24" is a focus familiar
yeah, and i doubt you can use them to determine weather your in close combat or not either lol.
pg 48 "This spell may be cast as if the Slann was where the skink priest is"
It's pretty hard to stop a Mage Priest from blasting things. There is the aforementioned skink priest channeling, but also if the unit he is in is engaged, he can still float up from the second rank and cast magic missiles as normal.
