Rule of the Day 04/09/2011
Tom McClure & I were teaching our great friend Caius the ins & outs of 8th edition tonight. Back in 6th edition, Caius played this mean goblin wolfrider army with lots of chariots. The new book/rules are making that very real to field again so he wanted to take some units and the new rules for a test drive.
I was very interested to notice a missing rule (from previous editions) and new it to be the next Rule of the Day.
pg 86 - There is no longer a special movement rule under the unit type Chariots to allow them to pivot instead of wheeling.
I expect it will become even more prevalent with goblin chariots now being able to take units of 1-3 and even more so once the Tomb Kings army book lands.
**EDIT - I did some more digging and found it - pg 27 allows a LONE chariot to pivot, just not a unit of chariots.
pg 27 - The one exception is that a single model can pivot on the spot as many times as it wishes over the course of its move.
