View Full Version : Tomb Scorpion Q

Ok at a game last Friday, someone said that a Tomb Scorpion can pick out a character in close combat (if the character is attached to a unit) where is there evidence to support this?

Everyone can strike specifically at a unit champion or character, if he/she/it is in b2b with it. If he/she/it is not b2b with said character, no wounds or attacks can be directed at him/her/it. Some magic items and special rules (doomseekkers at least) are an exception, tomb scorpion is not. So this someone is right or wrong, depending on the position of character and the scorpion. You can find the rules in the rulebook, characters and close combat most probaply.

See p. 33 of the rule book.

Yep, and every model in the game can do this, its not a Tomb Scorpion special rule or anything.

You only need special rules to target characters in units when using shooting attacks.

ah thanks for the replies, but the best explanation (just found it) is on p. 75 in the dividing attacks section...
