Me and my friend are very competitive when playing against each other, no matter how narrative the scenario is, we will try to push the rules to the edge to win. This will come up with a ton of questions about the rules that I will post here as they come up over time and hopefully get an answer to.
When moving a model is a model allowed to move into base-to-base contact with another model (not charging), for either friendly or hostile models? I’m assuming yes for friendly models, but no for hostile models, but the rulebook or the FAQ has no mention of this. And if they are allowed to move into base-to-base contact are they then engaged in combat?
When a model charges into combat and another model, not engaged in combat or the one being charged, reacts to the charging model by trying to shoot it. Does this count as shooting into combat or not? By reading the rules I’m assuming it does, since the reaction comes after the model’s action you’re reacting to, but I wanted to ask this question anyway since it seems like it shouldn’t be.
The Defend the Farm Scenario (Pg. 35 of the Campaign Handbook) lists the following:
“If an attacking model ends its turn touching a Investigation Marker, while no enemy model is within Orange, it can burn the crop. Remove the marker from the table.” However during the table set-up it clearly stated that the crops are the searchable markers. I think this is a typo and it should say searchable markers instead of investigation markers here.
The Newshound Scenario (Pg. 36 of the Campaign Handbook) has the following win conditions:
Does this mean that if the defender’s journalist takes 2 out of 4 markers and then gets killed, no one can win the game? Or how would this work? It does not state that the journalist carries the markers, but just removes them when in base-to-base contact with them.
