So during a game this question was brought up:
Zahra has 3" engagement during her activation. if the defending model wishes to make a counter attack while outside of 1" (ie, Zahra is engaging from 3" away), can they in fact make the counter attack? If so, does the fact they are not in mele range prevent them from actually resolving any results (if they had more net successes)?
I am currently reading the interaction as this:
After an enemy model declares an Attack Action against the reacting model.
This requirement is met.
resolve those net successes as if you had made a successful attack. Declaring
a Counterattack reaction is not considered declaring an attack against the opposing model.
So counter attack can be made, but is still considered a successful attack. Does this mean engagement is still needed for results?
If the resolution of any effect leaves the attacker or defender positioned
such that the attacker no longer engages the defender, the attack cannot continue, and any successes
not yet applied are lost.
So from here, it sounds like the check happens after an effect causes them to be outside of engagement. Does this mean you can have
while outside of the engagement, but the
is an effect that causes to you be out of the engagement?
This could affect her range but also have some purpose with models that can follow up 2"
