This blog will be a record of my thoughts about The 9th Age, and my recent tournament games.
I think it's definately gamey! I don't think it would actually be illegal though as the number of models in combat are maximised as per the rule book so if someone wanted to do it I would probably allow it.Having said that as flee-pursue etc. is centre to centre & it's going to deflect shit all over the place add that to combat reform on both sides if you start this kind of thing you're asking for people to shuffle a combat sideways and all sorts or crap. When you get games like that and it's a tournament it's legal so I go with it but it just ruins the games for me.
I think its fine.. PersonnalyIve done it in the past :)Though When ive done it. Usually for character protection more than anything
Huh? I didn't even realise people might actually think it was gamey? I do it in pretty much every other game...Not sure how this is any different to having a mage/BSB on the edge of a horde unit to minimise attacks when charged by a smaller width unit? I'd go so far as to say its exactly the same
Yep I have to confess to doing it as well. Usually to set up an overrun path. Sometimes with a wide unit to keep a mage out of the combat altogether
Its pretty standard at tournaments. It gets done to me all the time. (being undead I never get to charge much)
Cool. Thanks guys.
I didnt even realise you could do it - we just go straight in and line everyone up. Dont remember anyone doing it to me in a game.I think its only when a unit cant wheel enough to bring everyone into line that we get this kind of overlap.
