Default So i have played a few games and need help on a rule

I forget the name of the special rule but the emperors champion has it. The rule says something about singling out an opponent in close combat, does that mean only the two independent character's can hit each other. I don't have my friends codex with me since he plays black templars but that rule tripped us up.
thanks for any help

If I'm reading this correctly from the codex, it means that independent characters and the Emperor's Champion are put in base to base contact with each other, and otherwise combat goes on as normal. Pretty much it means that the Emperor's Champion can always attack an independent character if there is one present.

Havent heard any restrictions on the victim part, but the emporers champion needed to attack the HQ whenever it was possible, or moved up simply so so he could. He has to keep up his image for the neophytes.

Basically the Champion has to move to fight any characters in the unit. Whether that's a Sargent of the unit or the Super-super uber battle HQ guy. The EC's job is to cut the head off the snake.

Hope. This is not a plan. This is not a solution. It is reaction.

False, it is only Independent Characters, not sergents.

Basically, you have to move any of your models out of the way, to get the Emperor's Champion into base with the enemy IC, but if the Emperor's Champion is still in base with the enemy squad he may attack them as well. He just has to be in base with the enemy IC.

Thats my bad. My few games testing to see if the BT's were right for me were against the IG, who it seems have IC's in a full 1/3 of the squads. So it only seemed like i was charging sergeants. The Champion only makes the extra move for really real IC's.

Indeed, though I have yet to find out if that applys with the new retenue rules.
