In a night goblin (A) vs night goblin ( B ) battle: Unit A netted Unit B and Unit B netted themselves. Would this cause a -2 strength modifier to Unit B or would it be just the -1 as it would be if 2 night goblin units from the same army were netting a single opposing unit?
I don't think this is covered anywhere in the rules to be honest. My opinion would be they only receive -1str as you can only be netted once.
An opponent can only be netted once to I can't see it making much more difference if YOU are netted twice!!
I found the rule to this in the errata on the GW website:
It says that units cannot suffer entagled effects more than once
Perfect. Thanks for your help.
If you were being RAW about it rolling a 1 on the netter chart does not cause the netting unit to become entangled it simply gives them -1 strength, applying the rules strictly as written you would therefore be able to net yourself and become entangled by an opposing NG unit giving a total of -2 str.
The art of Eldar: Paint clean, play dirty!
It says that on a roll of 1 the night goblins have managed to cast the nets amongst their own ranks. So they entangle themselves, and you can only be entangled once. So they only suffer -1 strength
