Now that we have the Legion move with the new Ruska Cossak unit, we have an interesting situation.

Should a unit with Runner be able to get extra movement if they start their rapid assault on duckboards. The thinking behind this one is units with runner get +1 to movement when they are activated on duckboards. Rapid Assault gives units a movement of X during the attack phase. So starting an attack phase on duckboards must equate to +Y runner to X movement.

My thoughts on it: No. I think Rapid assault should only be what is listed. When a unit rapid assaults, they don't "move", they "rapid assault". They also lose their movement phase when using rapid assault. That would nerf this particular instance of a group of cossaks possibly getting Rapid Assault 2.

However, it isn't specified. So I wanted to get a community discussion about it. What do you think? Should the Cossacks get +1 to their Rapid Assault when they start on duckboards?

Yes,

Quote:
RAPID ASSAULT (X) - When a unit with this
ability activates during the Combat Phase, it
may perform a move of X movement points
before attacking. If it uses this ability it may not
move in the Movement Phase.

Quote:
RUNNER (+X) - This unit gains +X move when it
begins its activation on duckboards.

Rapid assault allows the unit to perform a move.

Runner gains +X move when it begins activation on duckboards.

Runner applies before the Movement Phase and Rapid Assault is a movement.
