pass a Target test against a target of X in order to be able to carry out the action, unless the model started its activation in base to base contact.

SCENARIOS

• Background: Three powerful Ki Idols have mysteriously risen from the ground in the battle area. Those versed in the ways of Ki have determined that by turning these idols in a particular way, the forces of Ki will be aligned in the favor of the force doing the turning. Two forces have converged on the area in order to make sure that they gain the favor of Ki rather than their opponents. • Setup: Use any terrain elements you have available and set up a 2' by 2' table by agreement with your opponent. Place three tokens along the centre line of the board, the first in the middle and the other two 8" on either side of the centre token. These tokens should have a facing marked on them, and set so that they are not facing either player’s table edge when play starts. These tokens represent the three Idols. The players make a Tactical roll and the winner selects the table edge he wishes to deploy on. The loser must then deploy his/her entire force in the opposite deployment zone, at least 12" from the centre line. When the loser of the Tactical roll has deployed his/her force then the winner deploys his/her entire force on the other table edge, again at least 12" from the centre line. • Instructions: Players are attempting to turn the idols to face their table edge. In order to turn an Idol a model must be in BtB contact when it is activated and then perform a Simple action. An Idol can only be turned 90 degrees with any action. A model in BtB with an enemy model cannot turn an Idol. The game lasts for 6 Turns. After the last turn, calculate Victory Points to see which player has triumphed. • Victory Points: At the end of the game, each player gains 1 Victory Point for each Idol facing his/her own table edge. The player with the most Victory Points wins.
