Hey, I found another weird interaction that would have been great to FAQ.
In the visions "A noble death" it state that in the command phase we can create a 6" aura of obsec AND set to defend for core and characters.
I was a bit puzzled by the second part and had a look in the rules.
The conditions to usually be able to set to defend are: be infantry, be within 3" of an obstacle terrain feature, not be within engagement range to declare it and as part of the defensible rules is usually triggered when an enemy unit is charging the unit.
Since this ability seems to bypass all of that (as we trigger it during our command phase (not in combat), does not require an obstacle and affects our core unit and characters (bypassing the infantry restriction)) I then went on reading what is the exact wording of "Set to defend" that we actually get
when within the aura.
The exact wording is : "Cannot fire overwatch but add 1 to hit rolls in next fight phase".
Since nothing in the "Set to defend" ability requires you to actually be charged (this is the defensible rule) does that mean that we can actually
use this offensively?
aka can we trigger it in command phase and provide obsec and +1 to hit for core and character charging in our subsequent charge phase while within
6" of the character with the vision?
