Question

Hey all!

 

Finally taking the plunge into AoS and I’m sure I’ll have loads more questions throughout the coming weeks, but so far this is the biggest one before I sit down  to play.

I come from playing 40k since 2nd Ed and I played WHFB til 7th Ed. So my knowledge of games gets a bit blurred sometimes with all the rule sets jumbled up in my brain space.

I read the ‘Look out, Sir!’ Rule and I’m wanting to make sure I get this right. 

In AoS v2 you CAN shoot at a hero as long as you have range and line of sight, even if they are not the cloesest model? The only ‘penalty’ for targeting a non-monster hero that is within 3” of another enemy unit is just -1 to hit, is this correct? Seems a bit of a raw deal for character models then, especially ones that require being close to other units to boost/support them.

 

Thanks all!

Servo

The requirement is to be within 3" of a unit of 3 or more models.  A -1 to his is great, but unlike WH40k, shooting is not nearly as prevalent.
