Hey all, this came up in a game. When NB uses his force push, does the enemy unit have to consolidate on the spot they land, or are they only forced to put a single model on that spot and then just retain coherency?
If it is only retain coherency, that really takes the wind out of this ability.
If I remember right off the top of my head is a basically a move as if falling back i.e. a straight line towards the back of the table. So if they weren't in coherency they won't be when they move. Bear in mind this just means they have to move into coherency in their next turn. But then making them fail a morale check in the next shooting phase could see the unit running for a long time.
It's not like falling back, they must move directly away from the nightbringer (so you could send them to your table edge if you want to). It's a great way to get rid of a large unit near the edge of the table
Yeah, that's the problem. If I remember right, nowhere in the rule does it state that you have to place the entire unit on that spot. This allowed him to actually spread his troops out enough to move into contesting range of an objective. Or is it every model moves 2d6 away?
It could be used to contest. The nearest model is moved away and the rest in placed in coherency.
