Hi,

I need few explanations about the Elite special Ability.

Quote:
In Close Combat, Elite units are assigned against enemy troops last and may engage in selective pinning. This means a unit of Elite troops does not have to engage all models in a unit before it can gang up on one or more models. In essence they may pick and choose which stands they may engage while ignoring others.


Does the sentence in bold mean:

a) Just an extra sentence to say that you can outnumber 1 enemy stand with your Elite stands without engaging other enemy detachment stands in a multiple close combat

b) When an Elite stand is engaged by multiple non elite enemy, it can choose the order of close combat resolution (which enemy it will fight first, if it survives, next one and so on...)

Thanks in advance for your replies :)

Hi

I read the bold part as "A", that is, a rephrasing of what it does.

Hi!

Most likely A.

I leave my vague recollections on "intent" out of this one (mainly since I cannot clearly recall this one), but there was a strong case for B.

As of today A is the correct alternative.
