I find this rule a bit contentious, the Unseen outside (x) inches... I know that it causes all shooting to be difficult targets, but how can they even be targeted if you are outside of x inches, as in reality you can't see them... Secondly, when they are positioned on the Battlefield, and are outsid...

Re: Natural Armour

It's just that, Natural Armour, so any invocations or weapons that have the Ignore Armour rule it ignores Borne or Worn only, not Natural Armour.

So in your example no. 1 would be valid as it includes the Natural armour but exlcudes the Borne armour.

I’m pretty sure they could use the Strategos Authority as he is presumably the general. Units can use the generals fortitude and authority within command range (authority divided by 10).

A Strategos that has Joined the Mesokolossos is technically the same unit, so would have higher Authority. But I'm a bit hazy on how authorities work with effects like that. For normal Authority tests you would use the Strategos' Auth. Problem here though is that he is not forcing himself, he may b...
