Here's where we start: "The Ballista and its crew are treated as a single model, using the characteristics given above. The crew must remain within 1" of the Ballista." On the warscroll.

Subject 1: Claiming objectives. Clearly, a Celestar Ballista has a model count of 1, even though it is physically 3 models, when it comes to contesting an objective. I've seen other people on the forum matter-of-factly claim it counts as 3, but it's obviously just 1.

Subject 2: As a target of a charge. The charging unit is 9.75" away from the Ballista, and 8.75" away from one of the crew. They roll a 9 for their charge. Can they successfully charge the crew model?

Subject 3: As a charging unit. The Ballista is 9.75" away from a target unit. One crew is 8.75" away from a target unit. They roll a 9 for their charge. Can they successfully charge the target unit?

Subject 4: Piling in and attacking. I don't even know where to start with piling in. Can the crew and Ballista pile in separately? Can they break their 1" rule? If there are enemy units within range of a crew model but not the Ballista, can they still be targeted with melee attacks? If there are any units within range of the Ballista but not any crew, can they still be targeted with melee attacks?

Subject 5: Movement: When you move this unit, do you move the Ballista and crew separately one at a time, or simultaneously? They "count as a single model" and we have no real means to move a single model in multiple parts. Is there a way to change the relative positions of the crew and ballista at all? How?

Open question: are there any other things that don't work easily with this model?

Not shooting. Shooting is easy. Everything else.
