Hi fellow archons,
I was playing a game recently with tau fortifications (shield tidewall? The one that can bounce back mortal wounds).
Anyway, questions arose in regards to for the greater good. For example - A unit of fire warriors were being charged, could the unit of pathfinders in the tau fortification help out with the greater good ability?
Obviously, The same issue arose for aura effects ie the fireblade and the warlord trait that gives -1 ap with 6 inchs of your warlord.
my initial thoughts were that the fortification was like the issues we have our gunboats ie auras don't work while in the fortification/open topped transport and don't effect the guys in the fortification when the aura is coming from outside (because they are not of table etc.) am I right in thinking this?
Also if the fortification was charged can the guys inside the fortification overwatch and/or could other units outside the fortification for the greater good even if the guys in the fortification could not? (I'm thinking no, but that just doesn't feel right. maybe because its a silly rule.)
what are the current ruling for these situations?
Just want some clarity on the matter and make sure I'm doing things correctly.
thanks in advance,
