Hy guys. It's a lot I'm not posting questions, but I'm back and ready to go
I need a clarification about the ability OUTMANEUVER, which is something fundamental in both the armyes I'm playing with: untamed and swamp goblins.
The ability is described on page 89. The last phrase is something not clear: "The models may be placed in LOS of enemy models as long as they are in cover".
The expression "as long as" is not clear. In Italian, we can translate it in two different ways, which are pointing toward two very different directions. It can be translated as:
1) The models can be placed in LOS of enemies BECAUSE they are in cover (they are hidden)...
2) The models can be placed in LOS of enemies ONLY IF they are in cover (which means behind something).
Which is the correct one???
It's something radical for a correct use of my units, and something that will influence a lot the effective power of my shooters.
If I have my slingers with a range of 6-12-18, or even worst my blowpipers with a range of 5-10-15, and they have to be placed 12 inches away of enemy models (as stated in the ability description and because you cannot stay hidden at a shorter distance) AND behind a repair, in an open field this ability is completely unuseful. If they have to be at a minimum distance of 12 inches BUT they can be in an open field hidden, it's very different. They can be activated and shoot a cursed shot in face of the enemy, and this will make the expense of fielding them worth to be done (they cost 28 AP, the slingers, and 26 the blowpipers), considering that after this first strike they will do very little more than being cannon fodders in wait of the following units to come...
Please, help me with this.
