View Full Version : Skirmishers - LOS

28-07-2011, 13:51
Quick question (might be illegal, if so apologies).

Don't have rule book, game this evening.

Under old rules Skirmishers had 360 line of sight.

Now that they rank up, has that changed?

Thanks in advance.

ALL models have just a front 90 LOS now. Even single infantry models on foot.

Solve this issue and your questions shall be easily answered.:D

The rules make no exception for Skirmishers to have 360 degree LoS so they use the same convention as everyone else, "View from model's eyeline." LoS is also different than Front Arc. You can have LoS, and not have someone in your Front Arc. Certain things require LoS and Front arc such as Charging or Shooting.

One thing ranged Skirmishers have going for them is that now they can March, with free reforms, and still shoot.

Thanks chaps - going to use my Shadow Warriors for the first time in an age and I just wanted to make sure I didn't leave them showing a flank when I thought it was a viable charge arc!

Had also forgotten about the March and Shoot.
