I am reading the core rules for NetEpic right now.
You will probably see many questions from me here
in the next couple of weeks. (fair warning :-)

I noticed under the section covering Close Combat
you decided to stay with pinning by size. I like
this rule. I did notice that skimmers are now a
different size class than normal infantry/vehicles.

1. Titans/Praetorians
2. Super Heavy Vehicles/Knights
3. All other vehicles/Troop Stands
4. Skimmers

Since skimmers are now considered to be smaller
than infantry stands and tanks, it appears as
though they can no longer pin ANY unit, except
other skimmers. Was this the intention of the rule?

It seems to me, that running away from skimmers
would be extremely deadly for troops and normal
vehicles. Think of how well medieval infantry
did when they tried to disengage from Cavalry.
