Another Medusa Question

Post by Eldarwonderland »

If the Medusa is on the shrine, is she in contact with all the models that the shrine base touches for purposes of the Str 4 hit rule?
I can't see why not, just need clarification before it appears in my list for tomorrow night.

The list is going to be comprised mostly of little used models such as the shrine/medusa, shades, bleakswords and scourge runner to name a few.

What about if the shrine is flanked or rearcharged? Isn't there something about the mirror being used to reflect the gaze from the supporting troops?

It's in the fluff, not in the rules.

Yah that is what I thought. But, you get alot of "rule theorists" that like to mix a little fluff with their interpretations.
