Re: Questions about norse - new kindred, same numpty

Text violation? The brutality of the man!?! That's reminded me of something I needed to ask. When a model, who is in base to base contact with other models, uses a grab soar weapon and successfully grab soars, can the unit they were attacking reflex attack them? I'm assuming they can as its a speci...

Re: Atalantes: Athority test for the Force action

Well, now the issue is can the Tekhnomantis use the Strategos' AUTH if it's in range? EDIT: I quite like that the test is performed with Tekhnomantis now, it's still risky but initially a 66% chance of succeeding is good enough that I'm willing to take the risk. No, I've made sure it's only his AUT...

Re: Run and Shoot action

It would be split into Walk and Shoot or Run and Shoot; so it would be +1 and +2 to the shoot value.

Walk and Shoot means you can move 2", shoot, move 3", Run and Shoot move 6", shoot, move 4" (both for a PACE 5 warrior).
