Hello everyone !!!
FAQ updated ! Again ?
Following the 10th release, the look out sir rules had changed, but a loophole allowed to make team of Monster/characters that were non-targetable.
GW made a faq 15 days later but the wording was not tight enough and created some weird interaction.
Yesterday another FAQ this time with a better wording :
Models cannot target a unit that contains any Character models with a Wounds characteristic of 9 or less with a ranged weapon while that Character unit is within 3” of any of the following:
A friendly unit that contains 1 or more Vehicle or Monster models with a Wounds characteristic of 10 or more
A friendly non-Character unit that contains 1 or more Vehicle or Monster models
A friendly non-Character unit that contains 3 or more models
In all cases, if that Character unit is both visible to the firing model and it is the closest enemy unit to the firing model, it can be targeted normally. When determining if that Character unit is the closest enemy unit to the firing model, ignore other enemy units that contain any Character models with a Wounds characteristics of 9 or less.’
Summary bullet is now :
My words : Honestly it's super cool that the GW rule team si so reactive. I remember cheesy loophole staying for years before fixing in the old days ^^
Also in the FAQ :
Does not work in the 9th so Thousand sons and GK are like everyone else now.
Obscuring and Dense Cover don't overwrite the rules for LOS !
