Skirmisher screen rules
- Troops that are in skirmish
formation can be used to *screen* friendly units
that are within 2" of the skirmishers.
- A single unit of skirmishers can
screen any number of friendly units, just as long
as all the screened units have a model within
2" of a model from the unit in skirmish
- A unit that is screened by a unit
in skirmish formation counts as being insoft
cover if it is shot at by a unit that draws a
line of sight through theskirmish screen.
- If a unit being screened declares
a charge, then the skirmish screen may 'flee' out
of the way.
- The screening unit makes its move
in the Declare Charges segment of the movement
phase rather than the compulsory movesegment,
before the chargers are moved or charge reactions
are made, and they *are* therefore allowed to
attempt to rally in the ensuing 'rally fleeing
troops' segment of the movement phase.
- Rule 5 aside they are treated in
the same manner as any other fleeing unit.
Additional Elephant rules
- All skirmisher infantry and all
drilled infantry in the army are considered to be
'used to' elephants.
- All tournament armies that have an
elephant are considered to be "Used to"
elephants. (This means your own cavalry/chariots
do not have to take a terror test while
deploying/moving within 8" of an elephant.
They may still not charge an elephant and must
flee or fire & flee if charged by one).
- Infantry that are in skirmish
formation can only be hit by an elephant on a
roll of 6 (they've learned to attack the beast
from the sides).
- The elephants crew will
still hit any attacking skirmishers normally.
Lucky Seven rule (optional)
- Both players must agree before the
- At anytime in the game, you may
declare a "7" in place of 2D6 roll
- This may be used once in each
- May not be used for any
type of reroll
