I don't think there is any such implication.

Rules Queries / Re: Skirmishing or running away
« Last post by badhabum on Today at 01:12:48 PM »
What already happened sometimes is the following :

A TUG charges a SUG on the flank but from some distance . The SUG did a skirmish to the rear just enough to avoid being caught by the charging TUG .

So it ended facing the charger and within firing distance and did not turn facing the charging TUG but the end result was that it faced the charging TUG and did not turn to face it ...if it is considered to have shot, I wouls say OK . It it may still shoot we will have to reconsider some charges  8)

If skirmishing now includes a mandatory turn to face the ennemy ( in case of flank or rear charge ) and it is clearly written that way, it will simplify many things

Which says:

As a result Countercharges and Intercepts never make anybody respond to them with Run Away of Skirmish moves. They are however shot at if they go within 1BW of enemy with missile weapons with resulting casulaties and Slowing Effect of Fire distance

Seems to clearly say that counterchargers and interceps are shot at.

Yes, that seems clear cut, although on the QRS it says "2.4 prompt and move countercharges or intercepts" and then 2.5 is the shooting and slowing and 2.6 is prompting through fire, so that seems to imply that countercharges and intercepts don't get shot.

I think if they have already evade the unit have to suffer a KAB


Why?  If you are going to make such a statement you need to quote the rule...

Just thinking things doesn't make them true (otherwise my dice would always roll skulls!).

Rules Queries / Re: frontal charge and conforming
« Last post by Jilu on Today at 12:39:11 AM »
i agree it is all somewhat confusing....a clear simple explanarion, with examples in the V2 would be welcome.

or.. use the kiss priciple, .. if at the start of the charge the charging unit is not in the flank of the target... it can never ever get in the flank of the charged unit, no matter what happens in the subsequent combat rounds

Certainly meant additional.

Rules Queries / Re: Countercharging and wheeling if already within 1BW
« Last post by Simon Meg-Meister on February 15, 2019, 07:14:15 PM »
And if it moves it clearly goes closer than 1BW .... who cares where it started.
Could be more elegant I accept, but if you can't see the the intent in that ones it s
"shoulda gone to specsavers" moment for sure.
