When did pre measure go away in N18?
So true! I've been playing games since the mid nineties so I'm experienced enough to have really good eyeball measurements without having known size markings on the board. To reduce difficulty of entry I've started to to allow pre measuring especially for charges.It’s a neat little rule that I’ve always felt well-represents the uncertainty of the combatants and the overall setting.
...that is, until you play against someone who works in construction. Being a carpenter in real life should add like 200 points to their gang rating - those guys are insane with eyeballing measurements.
You wouldn't need a cool check since the fighter in cover is closer, therefore is the one you *should* be targeting anyway.Actually I keep having a silly incident. Enemy fighter could be just outside of Long range of a short ranged weapon (krumper,sawn-off, etc) while being out of cover. Meanwhile there is other target who clearly is in range, but in cover.
I want to shoot target in cover, since shooting someone outside of a Long range will be a 100% miss, however I would be wrong skipping Cool Checks in case target out of cover actually happens to be in range...
