Wait?
« on: December 29, 2005, 09:47:59 AM »
Quick question on Wait action.  Do you need two actions to go on Wait? One to Wait and one as the action you are reserving.  Or can you wait with one action?  ex. I have 3 actions, I move twice and then go on Wait and can perform an action during opponents turn.

As far as I understand it, you only spend the one action, and then you need to roll a LD test to come off of Wait.

Those that with AMBUSH ability can have 2 wait actions.

You need to roll LD only if you doing range attack and if you are not the target of the close combat.  If you coming off wait and defend a close combat taget, then you'll have to roll against LD in order to countercharge.

One thing that needs to be mentioned.
Ambush also does not require you to roll in order to come off wait.
Think of the possibilities.

Anyone trying to get into CC with a unit of Waiting Jungle Kommandos is in for a world of pain. :)

Pound for insane Pound the Free Marines are the best CC troops out there.  Especially with AssMars Deadshooting around them.
