Nick Freeman takes us on a bird’s eye view of the recently updated Rules Reference:
Activating: When multiple effects occur at the same timing during a units activation (without pre-arranged resolution timings such as with detonate and standby) the player controlling the activating unit decides the order that effects resolve in. This is a new addition and clears up a lot of confusion around timing issues.
Armor X Keyword: Armor X works in the same way that Armor does, but is a limited keyword instead of unlimited. This gives some granularity and control to the system.
Base Contact: This is a reversal from a previous rule that friendly models could not be base to base with other friendly models in different units. This allows you to gain cover from vehicles and emplacements while ignoring the cover yourself. It also clears up some illegal game-states that could be created under certain circumstances and cleans up and streamlines the rules.
Climb Clamber: While climbing a mini can partially overhang a ledge as long as the mini is stable. This is a reversal on previous reversal… essentially back to where we started.
