I don't play ogres myself, but an ogre player used this one against me the other day. I figured you guys would know more about it and be able to verify this one for me.
he had a unit of ironguts i think, that was 3*4. front rank had all his command models, as required. three characters were sitting in the second rank. When we engaged in combat, he used the characters "make way" rule on page 100 BRB, to move all his characters to the front rank. Then proceded to beat me mercelessly, because i couldn't damage the higher toughnes/better save characters.
Can he really do that? I know you can make way and all, but i thought that was just to the flank and rear. Don't command models ALWAYS have to be in the front rank? Probably wouldn't have changed things too much, since the characters still would have gotten to attack me and kill me completely, but at least i'd have taken a few of the unit ogres out. I let him do it, simply because it wasn't worth fighting over. but the more I think about it, it irks me. I looked through the BRB and page 92 in the BRB states in BOLD "Command groups must be placed in the unit's front rank and move automatically if the unit reforms."
For future refrence, how does this really work?
