quesition about jute spell - through the veil

Postby HughB » Thu May 09, 2019 9:56 pm

If a dreaguth deathbringer is part of a unit of dreaguth, can he activate and cast through the veil on the unit to move both the unit and himself 3D10". If this move puts them in contact with an enemy unit, the unit can act as if it has ambushed the enemy unit. Questions are as follows:

Can the dreaguth deathbringer move himself as well as the dreaguth unit as part of the fetch move or does he have to activate and leave the unit to then cast through the veil on the unit.

If the dreaguth deathbringer has activated to cast the spell, presumably this means that if he does move as part of the unit, he can't count as ambushing as he wont be lively. Does he instead count as having indirectly engaged with a unit as he will be alert having cast the spell? Does this mean the ambushed unit gets a chance to react against the deathbringer only?

Yes he can, unless the invocation specifically says he can't. He's part of the unit.

Yes, that's correct.

Cool. Oh my god its like I'm actually starting to understand the rules. Next question on this.

Deathbringer activates and casts through the veil on himself and a unit of dreaguth. The unit is moved 3D10". The unit can then activate and move if they wish to (this is presuming they are lively). Having cast a spell on himself can the dreaguth then continue to move with the unit as he is yet to move or does casting the spell essentially end his activation and does he go from being lively to alert having being fetched (so he would be fetch moved with the unit but would then be left behind as the unit moves again)?
