- If a unit is in terrain that provides cover and shoots at another unit also in that terrain piece, does the shooter take the cover modifier? Yes
- Can a unit countercharge a unit to its flank if there is no room to pivot due to the close proximity of other units? Yes, but only if its final position is completely free of other units. During a Countercharge, the pivot can take it over other units but after it has contacted its target, it must be completely clear of all units. It may slide to achieve this.
The situation in the second question is covered in the most recent FAQ where there are diagrams illustrating this. It was also a question that had previously provided confusion in threads on Mantic Forum prior to the FAQ being issued.
I will say, as an Umpire, I find KoW an excellent set of tournament rules where the rule is easily found in the well written and logical rulebook. This makes umpiring a relatively painless process.
