I searched the forums for this and got to pg. 9 of the search results and didn't find anything so I gave up. Sorry if this has been answered before.
Can you use The hand of Gork spell to "drive" your fanatics INTO an enemy unit ?
According to the text of the spell (pg. 40 of the O&G rulebook), I'm inclined to think you can do it. I recently played a practice game and actually played it this way... Did I rob my opponent, or did I played it correctly ?
Thanks in advance for your answers !
There has been a post like this one, but then it was about the Waaaagh! spell of the big waaagh! Fanatics benefit from the waaagh spell because they count as a unit, so they can also be the target of the hand of gork.
I've played it against some different players and none of them said it was wrong (one of them knows almost all the rules and he knew my army, very smart guy!)
Fanatics can really hurt if u use these spells, ask my friend xD
Can this really be done ?
Its pretty bready however, since it also causes your fanatics to move towards the nearest visable enemy. While technically legal, I personally wouldnt use it, and it will not be well recieved if you do it.
whats confussing? Your making a random movement model move directly into your opponents line. Not only that, it travels directly too the nearest visible enemy, theres no chance it wont hit his models if its in range.
You essentially removing the draw back of the fanatic.
This move will cop you sports hit if your in a tourny and wont make you friends, ill put it that simply.
Please ethsar46, don't take offense but I disagree with you entirely. I thought this game was a STRATEGY game. I think that if you (by pure LUCK of the dice) manage to get the spell, and use it without breaking any rule (there's the strategy part), you should not get to be called "unsportsmanlike" by any one.
Besides, EVERY other army in a tourney will be trying to WIN. Or am I missing the picture entirely ?
It's like Lord-Viper said, we got to find strategies to win against other players. There is nothing wrong or cheesy about this tactic. You have to roll that spell first AND your enemy can try to dispell it.
It's a great way to get a bit of control over your fanatics (or other random moving units).
