Rob.. great game but....

We got one thing wrong. (and it's your fault) :p

Remember how we were talking about being able to see everyone on a hill, even the guys in the back.. you can't. It's the exact opposite. If you're on a hill, looking at the ground, you can see everyone on the ground, including the guys in the back. Looking at a hill from the ground, you can only see the front two ranks. Get what I'm saying? It didn't matter, since we both used the incorrect rule to our advantage.

In the diagram below, two units (ground and hill) and characters hiding behind them are looking at each other. All the ones in red can see the enemy in red. All the ones in green cannot see the enemy(and cannot be seen by the enemy). Makes sense?

Why would the models on the ground see exactly two ranks of the unit on top of the hill? Are you trying to reciprocate the 'fire in two ranks from a hill' rule

Basically. Makes sense that since two ranks on a hill can see (and shoot at) the ground, then the ground should technically see two ranks on the hill (has no game effect that I can think of).

What's important to keep in mind (and this is a change in the rules from last edition) is that ALL the models on the ground can see the unit on the hill, and ALL ranks can shoot at them. Big change to the rules, and has a very nice effect on ranked shooty infantry such as seaguard and nightgobs with bows.

How about a unit of 20 RxB dark elves with full command. Great for adding combat res to... something. And when it's convenient, they move towards a hill and throw 40 shots at whatever is foolish enough to stand there. It'll erase a fast-cav unit, could seriously hurt or destroy a flying unit. Will half-kill a giant. And what I would do is get into charge range and dare the to charge me so I could get a 20 RxB model stand-and-shoot!

:lol Come on, man! It's a new use for friggin ranked infantry! And they cost POINTS! And with that many, you may as well give them full command.
