nuking your own troops - A morality Q for debate Thu, 17 July 2008 01:16
So heres the scene, you leave a wounded unit (lets make it green and down to a minior two) out on its own, your opponent goes ho ho an easy flag for me and dashes out to smite it leaving his line weakened.
You then Gate it back to safety to deny the enemy the flag and leaving them in a weakened position, sounds like a sound plan if some what wasteful.

Now, what if your unit was a goblin infantry and all you had a Fireball would you 'push the button' on your unit?

Should it be allowed?

What in game penalty could or should be imposed? (hey its fine for a one off but once word starts getting round would you get people flocking to your banner so readily? Similarly your opponent may start fighting 'to the last man' becasue they know what sort of person they are fighting)

You are not allowed to attack your own units. You can only target enemy units when causing damage. So you cannot smite your weakened goblin unit just to deny your opponent a banner.

This has been discussed a long time ago so it will take me a while to find the thread.

Well, the rules may make it moot, but I don't think I would ever pull the trigger unless that unit happened to be the last banner needed and no chance of going on the offensive myself to put the game away. 10 lore is a lot to just save one banner.

Besides, what if I missed Wink

You could always make it a house rule - you MUST nuke goblins.

Oh no you di-ent!

If your Dwarven unit is down to the last man just have the Hill Giant toss him at the nearest Goblin Spear bearer. Very Happy

Beard Kabobs are back on the menu boys! Laughing
