    • as per 3) Dark council reads that the unit counts as friendly to THIS unit, so you can use an enemy model that has been compelled to shoot at one of its "friendly" models, you wouldn't be able to shoot the same unit but you could shoot units in the same posse
    • 1) Dark Council does not require line of sight, the target just has to be in range. 2) Taking advantage of the Dark Council rule is not an action. Furthermore there are many more occasions where you could spend action point without making an action, i.e. Shrewd Strategist, Shield Aura or the Creation Rule for doubling up the PRC value of a melee weapon.

      3) See the rulebook on p.3, Friendly Fire: friendly models cannot usually be nominated as the Initial Target of an attack.[...] 

      EDIT: For 3) that was a bit incomprehensibly written, what i meant was that a model can't target other (friendly) models from it's own unit, BUT of course other units from it's own force/posse/army during that free action.
    • Few questions regarding Dark Council: 1)  Dark Council says "...this unit may select a unit with the TAINTED trait..."; does the Dark Council unit require line of sight to the "selected" unit?  As far as I can tell, line of sight is only needed when making attack actions, per page 3 of the rulebook.  As such, it should only be needed if Dark Council is an attack action, which leads to question number 2:  2)  Is Dark Council an action?  It requires action points but it doesn't explicitly state that it is an action like other special rules such as Rebel Yell do. 3)  If a unit with Dark Council is able to use the ability to Compel an enemy hand unit or support unit, can models in the compelled unit select other models in the unit as initial targets of their attack action?  
    • A good deal of your questions would be resolved by remembering the following: It isn't like 40k or similar games where squads all roll dice together. While Units containing multiple models must take the same action, in every other respect you resolve them separately. Target an enemy unit with each separately etc. Roll die for each separately.  Hopefully that clears up quite a bit for you.
    • I’m having trouble working out targeting. 1. say I have a unit of 5 hands shoooting at another unit of 5 hands. Which units are removed if wounded?  2. If I have one model in the unit with an updated/alternate weapon, can they be targeted seperately or is it just whichever model is closest to the enemy is the first removed when wounded? 3. If i use the carpathogen rule, which models are reanimated? Can I pick one with an updated/alternate weapon? 4. If a heavy weapon cannot be used in the same activation turn as moving (unless on a vehicle), can I use dark council during another units turn to make the heavy weapon user shoot as a free action? 5. Can a unit with trail finder and rapid, focus their free move made after deployment but before activation?  
    • I should pull out my Relth fleet and do a full-fleet shot with them. I'm like less than halfway done painting them and tempted yet again to redo the whole thing.   In the meantime, I finished my second set of objective tokens after recovering from illness. Now that I've got more objective tokens than I'll ever actually need, time to get back to the Directorate.
    • Yes, this is some how why i asked in the first place. i only know the term "removed from play" from other games. and there it often means it is gone forever without the possibility to bring it back.  This is why i got a little confused here.   thank you all for the fast answers!  
    • Thanks @Overread My hope is to one day do a 3 on 3. Game with one each of the core faction s, and 2000 pts apiece even if i need to run the entire zenian side ill keep painting, and one day, that table will be full, I still have 1 works raptor patrol fleet 8 directorate frigates, 4 drones, 6 light frigates, 3 of the champian cruisers, 1 more directorate battlestation, 4 directorate defense platforms, 2 more turmoil cruisers to finish my directorate, and 2 relthoza carriers, 2 brood and 1 Nexus battleship, 6 heavy cruisers, 6 version 1 cruisers, 3 assassin's, 6 light frigates, 12 drones, 8 widows, 12 wolf, 4 nidus, 6 gunships/lightcruisers, 3 shunt cruisers, 2 bane shunt cruisers, 1 more Apex, 2 more venoms, 2 raptor battle cruisers, and 4 relthoza defense platforms left to go to finish my relthoza
