hi guys. i just stoped by from the chaos secton to ask a quick question. in a recent game i played with a friend he had a farseer on a jetbike with some other equipment that got charged by an entire squad of ccw chaos marines.
i was just wondering if it is possible for him to cast fortune while he is engaged in close combat. because combined with fortune and his 3+ invounable (i didnt think there was that low of an invounable) i couldnt touch him for 4 rounds till the game ended.
now it was a friendly game so i didnt realy mind, but we both wanted to know just for future refrence.
Just had a check of the latest codex. There is no specific phase mentioned for fortune power and the main rules specify that all "psychic powers are subject to shooting rules if not specified" or words to that effect. Hence fortune should be cast in the shouting phase and not the assault phase. Further more, models in close combat cant shot so I would think he wouldnt be able to use this power when in close combat. Hope that helps

well, the current faq says that you are allowed to use fortune in cc. Go Eldar!

I've just had a more thorough read of the powers in the new codex and it states that all farseer powers are used at the start of the eldar turn unless stated, and its not stated for fortune.
I also think the new codex superceeds the FAQ but I could be wrong.
yes... the new codex... then the killing will truely begin.... muwhahahahaha....
You never could get a 3+ invunerable, unless you turboboosted, but then its quite unlikely he would have gotten charged, but farseers only have a 4+ invunerable.
