Default Pathfinders' pre-game move.

Given a Gamma level mission with 'Dusk and Dawn' in effect. When exactly do you (those of you that actually use Pathfinders anyways) take your free move?

I've been making the move immediately after all deployment has been done. Before even rolling for D&D. Mostly because that's the option that gives me the least tactical advantage, but also because the only precedent I can find is the Sentinels entry in the new Guard Codex. (P.47 if you want to check it out.)

Does anyone know of any further clarification?

Well I don't see how it would actually affect anything, as its only a pre-game move, you're not shooting or assualting or anything (its not a full turn). Dusk and dawn would affect shooting etc, but not movement.

it could matter because knowing whether or not turn 1 will use night fight rules could very much affect his decision about moving or not, or where to move, etc.

I'd say this belongs someplace in some Tau faq. I'd also say that they move after D & D rolls, as it makes the sense (of course you know whether it's morning or not!), besides, I think GW ment for them to be able to 're-deploy' a bit after all's set, but before anyone's had a go!

Hey, JørnN, what country are you from? I couln't help but to notice the Norwegian letter 'ø' in your nick, so just had to ask! (norwegian myself)

Its already in the FAQ. Our FAQ too. It states specifically at the start of our FAQ/Question thread here to read both the 3rd Ed. and 4th Ed. FAQs available from the GW website before asking questions.. and also to keep questions to that thread..

Solved and Locked.
