Hi me again. Just purchased a slan mage preist should arrive in a few days. just wondering a few things about slann abd temple guards. I know he sits in the second row but what my friend and I are wondering is if the unit is in close combat do i take casultys from templeguard first til im left with the slann. Also as i think he takes up the space of 4 temple guard is it still counted as them still being there with regards to attacks I make from row 1 and 2. If someone could explain how this all works would be most appreciated.
If the enemy is in base contact with Temple Guard, then only Temple Guard can be killed. So yes, you're thinking here is correct.
Since he's in the second row, he will cost you 2 supporting attacks from the second rank. In exchange, you get his 1 S3 attack. If the Temple Guard become a Horde (unlikely from their cost) then the TG behind him can make 1 supporting attack, too.
Hope that helps
Helps alot thanks. So he wouldnt be able to be attack by close combat until all the temple guard have died?
