Ok, so how are people reading the whole charging into cover thing in regards to monsters? Such as the Wraithknight?
To be specific, as I was playing someone who usually reads rules quite well because he's THAT kind of player, your base has to be within 1" of an enemy model in order to fight in combat. If you're within 1", you get your Pile-In and then fight, etc.
BUT, I've been looking at the rulebook, and it doesn't say BASE. It says MODEL.
"The first model must finish within 1" of an enemy model from one of the target units."
"Any unit that charged or has models within 1" of an enemy unit can be chosen to fight in the Fight Phase."
"To target an enemy unit, the attacking model must either be within 1" of that unit, or within 1" of another model from its own unit that is itself within 1" of that enemy unit."
So to demonstrate with an image, lets say this Cylon is looking to fight this Space Marine. THe Cylon is standing in for a Wraithknight. Because I don't have one. Yet.
So, as its been argued to me by HIM, THAT GUY, the base has to be able to get within 1", and otherwise you can only Pile-In if within 1".
However as I read the rules, its not base. its model.
In this case (because of weird base placement, forgive me, the Cylon has charged so that the MODEL is within 1", therefore it can fight. Right?
The rules obviously prevent the Cylon from getting on top of the building (because it must always end a move on the ground floor, and both Charges and Pile-Ins are described as Moves. But the within 1" rule would allow something big enough to charge someone standing at least right on the edge of Ruins.
Unless I'm missing something?
I can't find any rules which say that a model is always taken as a base......so..............right?
