Technically correct, but in practical games so long as the entire unit isn't moving more than 6" anyway it's ok to do some reshuffling.LordCreampuff said:Correct. Models must be able to physically fit between the bases to be able to pass through the existing unit. You must also trace the exact route when measuring movement. Don't forget that running around other models eats up the 6" movement really quick.
If you had to keep track of EVERY model's move allowance as it was moving it would get tedious and long very quickly.
Say you had that 1/2" gap and wanted to move some ppl up. So you move 1 model 1/2". It has 5 1/2" left. Now move the troop you wanted to move through that hole. Now do the same for another back unit but oh wait, that 1/2" that one guy did now makes another hole smaller. Got to move him or another guy 1/2" so rear guy #2 can move up, etc.
You see my point?
Generally, as long as no one model moves futher than 6" from it's starting location I don't make my opponent (or myself) calculate these less than 1 inch movements in order to swerve around other models just to change the shape of the squad. That's just plain anal IMO.
Yeah, technically for WBB you have to roll for each down Necron warrior one at a time, and if it so happens that after a couple failed WBB your next roll is out of 6" from something to copy you can't roll it. But again, that just gets anal.
