        Re: rampaging units. Ok we're talking a pretty good ability here
but how good is it meant to be? Ok basically it means any unit with it
gets to roll 2 dice to cause hits in close combat - win or lose. The no
retreat however is a little trickier. Ok if the unit is not actually IN CC
it doesnt get auto-trapped however what happens in the situation where the
rampage unit loses but destroys both opponents. It has caused the case
(in a small battle in which we were trying to determine just how foul the
Bloodthirster was) where a unit of BTs lost the combat by 1. The combat was
a little spread out and the BTs rolled well for hits (they got 8 from 12 dice
while the opposing aspects and managed 2 from 6 - both of which the BTs
saved :| ) . Needless to say the 6 not so lucky exarchs were wiped out leaving
no enemy left within 15 cm. Thus despite the fact they lost they werent
actually killed . THis IS how other people play with rampage isnt it?
Also if one of the aspects had survived the BT's within 15 would have been
wasted - the save wouldnt have helped - correct?
