Arriving from "reserve"
« on: August 11, 2013, 04:52:10 PM »
Hello guys!

I just had a couple of quick question.

1. When arriving from reserve (for example in the Exterminatus mission), are you allowed to act freely in the same turn (go on special orders etc).

2. Do you have to face the opposite table edge from the one you arrived at when you deploy or can you face any other direction?

3. If you want to go as far as you can with a speed 20" cruiser for example, do you measure 20" from the edge of the board or do you deploy the cruiser and measure from the pin? I know it's a small difference here, I just want to clarify :). Actually the same question applies to ordinance: do you measure from the edge of the marker or the base itself?

Thanks in advance!

I'm amused at the prospect of a 20" cruiser  :P

1. Yes
2. Depends on scenario. Example?
3. From table edge. Howevah... 20inch is quite fast. 20cm sounds better. ;)

Hahaha to many 40k games these last couple of weeks I see now, 20cm, of course! 20 inches, pfft! That would be silly ;)!

However, thank you both very much for the clarifications!
As to your point on #2 horizon: say for example the Exterminatus mission. When you arrive from reserve, can you face any direction you want, or do you have to deploy facing the opposite table edge?

Thanks again :)!

I would figure that cm vs inches wouldn't really make that much difference provided everything got the same treatment  :D

That would be the biggest problem, yes. A 150inch Nova Cannon distance shot...

Ouch, that's nearly 4m! Crazy. It's the sort of scale you could play at with 4 people in a gym. Maybe some larger models would be nice though!
