Bottle tests
« on: July 04, 2021, 10:59:53 AM »
Hi All the bottle test has changed in the most recent rule book

It's changed twice now.

Originally, all fighters in your gang tested when it was your turn activate a fighter in the round.
- this meant if the enemy won priority, they'd get an activation before you tested.

Dark Uprising changed it so all fighters tested at the start of the action phase.
- this meant it didn't matter who had won priority, you still tested for everyone before anyone activated.

Hive War has now changed it so you test in the end phase, immediately after rolling the bottle check.
- normally this doesn't make much difference. But it does mean you test to bottle before any 'start of the turn' tactics cards, which may affect whether you want to use them or not.

Umm... thanks GW. I really wish they would settle down into a normal release/rule schedule with Nercomunda, it feels like they're all over the place.

The bottle test has been at the start of the end phase since the 2018 rule book, just checked it in that book and the hive war book and they are both the same.

The bottle is at the start of the end phase. But the test for if the fighter flees has moved.
