Well i have some doubts about this crazy unit:


-A) If a unit of squig hoppers jump crosing a forest and "charges" a unit that is just on the side of the forest how can react that unit, asuming they don't see the squigs only when they get charged, could they flee? or stand and shoot?


-B) A squig hoper unit get for example 12 inches in the dices and move only 4 inches because there's a unit on their way, they can react doing everything? flee shoot or standing?


-C) and do they and the normal squig herds suffer animosity?

Thanx!

A) No Line of Sight is required to react to a charge. Note however that if the chargers come into range of the unit's missile weapons but are still obscured by terrain then the unit will simply hold.

B) They would be unable to S&S as the squigs are less than half their charge move away. They can flee or hold if they wish.

A) Surely they could only hold or flee? They were over not in LOS at start after all.
B) If they have 8 inch range weapons they could shoot so they can only flee or hold

A) Surely they could only hold or flee? They were over not in LOS at start after all.Whether the unit has LOS at the start of the charge is irrelevant. What is relevant is whether the unit has LOS when the charger comes into range of every shooting model.


B) If they have 8 inch range weapons they could shoot so they can only flee or holdThe range of the weapons has absolutely nothing to do with it.

exactly the range of weapon isn't a problem the problem is that they don't see the unit till is in contact with them.
