    Climbing Vehicles and Unit Facing

    Personally, I would think A and C are both legal.

    General Weiss question

    That's just the standard reminder text for the arsenal keyword. But yes, Weiss is not AT-ST only, so future units with that upgrade icon can use him, and it is possible that unit has more than one mini.

    Vehicles and objective taking.

    2/4 are trooper only.

    1.4 and displacement

    Should the E-Web block line of sight?

    Everything I KNOW and DONT KNOW about LOS and cover...

    Yeah, and that's fine if you and your opponent agree.

    Well most buildings or solid objects provide heavy cover, so in most cases of units gaining cover from the terrain they are standing on, it will be heavy cover.

    Everything I KNOW and DONT KNOW about LOS and cover...

    I understand how geometry works. I didn't say I didn't agree with your application of it. I don't agree with the rules working that way. Thankfully the rules don't tell us to apply geometric principles to our gameplay (because that could bog things down). We are told to look with our eyes and go with what we see. The rules DO tell us to get down and take a look. If the intent was figures with a height advantage always gain cover, the rules could just state that outright instead of someone needing to create illustrations to show the geometry at work. If the only part blocked by the terrain in your diagrams is the red shaded areas of the base, I would wager a majority of players wouldn't even notice the difference between the 3 perspectives and would say no cover. If it is intended to work as your diagram shows, we probably will need a clarification. If it isn't, we probably still need a clarification.

    I guess I'm not really on board with line of sight having depth in regards to cover. The closest parts of the mini are fully visible to me in all 3 of those pictures. That's what should matter (IMO). I would be interested in how Alex would rule in this scenario.

    1.4 FD Laser Cannon Team and Suppression token

    My entire point was that the unrevealed rules likely are not that complicated, so it really isn't worth telling people it is worthless to ask questions.

    Well my guess is it is a trooper on a bigger base, since the RRG section for trooper mentions small bases.

    Ideas for Imperial Officer/ Rebel Commander

    100% this.

    What rules that haven't been released? The full rules for Stationary? Yeah, true. They function within the rules as is with what we know, though.

    But no matter where I'm standing, if that mini has it's back turned to me, I will never see the part you shaded red. I do not believe it should be getting cover. Nothing is obscuring your line of sight to any part of the mini that you could normally see.

    FAQ/Rules Update, when?

    Between page 8 talking about terrain, and page 22 for cover, we had a set of rules that functioned. They just lead to odd situations, like a barricade giving a trooper group 10 inches away from it cover when the attacker has a height advantage. The clarification im the official thread gives a new and clear process to modify what is on page 22. Page 8 is still the same. Your AT-ST example doesn't work because, by default, barricades do not give cover to AT-STs.

    FAQ/Rules Update, when?

    It's spelled out plainly on page 8 of the rules reference...
