Pulling a character out of his unit for a challenge.
Ok, played a pretty big game the other week, and this issue has been argued pretty fiercely between the group of friends who I played the battle with.
In the game, our opponent (Chaos), charged a unit of Deathknights with Belial in it. Now Belial was now T5 from being in base contact with two of his terminators. The Chaos Lord issues a challenge, but wasn't in base contact with Belial or his unit. Belial, wasn't actually in base contact with any enemy, the two terminators either side of him, were each in base contact with one enemy model. So he argued, that since he couldn't move his Lord into base contact with Belial by swapping any units, Belial had to come out from the back of his unit, and into the enemy unit, to be in base contact with the Chaos Lord. Which in turn brought him out of his unit, losing the T5 from Fortress of Shields.
The rule is pretty all over the place in the codex. But it seems like an odd one, which didn't quite seem right
D = Deathknights. B = Belial. T = Chaos Terminators. L = Chaos Lord. Ignore the full stops. Was kind of like this....
At the start, before challenge is called:
Then after challenge, he declared it would have to go down like this.
Three of us are pretty new back into 40k, where as he hasn't been out of it at all. So in the end we couldn't be bothered to argue it.
