1.2 If a troop moves and merges with another troop, and the new troop has a creature that adds a movement bonus, can that combined troop use the movement bonus on the same move? No. From the rules (p. 5): “Furthermore, the player can gather units from spaces on his way, as long as he doesn't exceed the movement capacity.”
I want to teleport some units to my scarab, and then utilise the scarabs movement capacity, can this be done? I was under the impression that teleportation does not use any movement capacity, and therefore I begin counting my movements after I teleport, with the units on the other end of the teleport.
So basically is my movement capacity calculated before or after I teleport?
Consider this: you can teleport after you have already spent movement points. That means the move action is not in any way divided in a "walk / teleport" structure. You select a move action, you choose a troop, you calculate movement points, and then you move as you please and can.
