Hi folks,

so here is a situation we encountered yesterday during a campaign game, Empire vs. WoC.

A stank charges a unit of warriors with some heroes in it. And grinds it down to about 5 models. The stank itself is charged by some dragon ogres. This all is secondary but at one point a unit of Empire Knights charges the remaining unit of warriors, which at this point is only one deep. So maximizing the contacts we arrived at the following situation 174599. The warrior model far to the top actually is a mage which is slain by the knights. The stank then kills the remaining warriors but the one to the bottom (which actually again is a mage) and we arrive at the following 174600.

Now we were discussing, the knights are not in contact anymore and therefore used the rule which says that their causalities still count towards the combat res. but they don´t bring any additional bonus (like standard ....). So far so good.

But someone pointed out that the knights or the mage (remaining warrior) should have moved up/down to restore contact. Now the Knights could not since they were to wide but the mage could.

So here are the questions:

Does somebody move up/down? What if the mage would have been a warrior (champ) would this make a difference, because at this point the mage is a single unit again?

What if the Knights would have been only, say one knight so that they could have bypassed the stank after all the killings?

I am pretty happy with how we handled it but these questions I think came up...

Best,

G
