    Compulsory movment and animosity

    How does this work with units like squig hoppers? Does the animosity take president or the does the fact that the troops move in the compulsory movement phase?

    You roll for animosity at the very start of the turn, so if they squabble they can't do anything at all, just like any other unit. For "we'll show 'em", you move them as normal, then resolve their compulsory movement later.

    So yes, animosity takes precedence over the fact that they move in the Compulsory Moves phase. Basically, Squig Hoppers always move (whether you want them to or not), unless they squabble.

    Here's a second opinion. It agrees with the first opinion.

    Since animosity is the first thing you do, then they are affected by it before they move, and are bound by the results of the animosity test. Also, it is clear that they do take the test (even though I would imagine that really they would be too busy trying to control their squigs to be able squabble), as under animosity it specifically says which units do not test.

    Ahh, but if we're goblins riding squigs side by side and I kick you/your squig, then it only takes a moment or two before the whole unit of squigs is fighting amongst themselves.

    The animosity rule states that it takes place outside of the normal turn sequence and the result rolled tells you then what happens during the turn. If they squabble the fact that is says they can do nothing that turn must supercede the compulsory movement.

    And gobbo's will always find a way to fight. Squig hoppers squabbling must look like one of those cartoon fights with a dust cloud and arms and legs flying out all over the place :w00t:
