Looking to get official clarification on a rule I see a lot of divide on.
Trooper A is knocked down and at the beginning of the unit’s actication sacrifices it’s movement to stand up. Trooper B begins a movement/charge, and trooper A is placed along with the unit. Does trooper A get to use it’s combat action?
The only part about a placed trooper needing to forfeit its Combat Action has to do with it suffering an effect that prevents it from advancing, but forfeiting Normal Movement dosen’t prevent advancing (e.g. Side Step, Overtake, Reposition) - it just prevents a model from using its Normal Movement to advance.
But as we’ve seen elsewhere with rulings on Scyrafael’s feat, placed troopers arent consodered to have advanced anyways.
Indeed, the example text in the same rules section explicitly says that forfeiting Normal Mocement is not an effect that prevents advancing.
If there is some other effect that a trooper can/must forfeit its Normal Movement to (e.g. Stranglehold) is the intention that it also must forfeit its Combat Action after being placed as part of its unit’s movement?
