    First of all, thanks for the batrep Frontline!

    Quick rules question.

    I don’t use scouts nearly as often as Reece seems to do, but if using infiltrate, don’t you have to stay at least 18 inches away from enemies who can draw line of sight to you?

    It looked to me like those DA scouts deployed 12 inches away from those Tau.

    Again, not sure if I got it right here and I don’t have the new DA book 🙂 Honestly, they might have been using their scout move which would allow them to deploy within 12 inches but it didn’t look like it.

    Anyone who can help me out?

      Most times, Reece and the gang just deploy 12″ away, consolidating the infiltrate and scout, unless the other player has the rules as well.

        Ah I see, that makes sense. Thanks 🙂

          Another quick question.

          Doesn’t scout happen after the seize roll? If the Taudar player did seize wouldn’t Reece be too close because he scouted first?

          I might be wrong, don’t have my book with me.
