ok - this is probably a very naive question but I'm in the middle of my first gane and trying to get my head around some of the concepts

Relentless Assault says:
"Before the combat roll, eliminate up to two Shadow units. Add 1 to all dice on your combat roll for each such eliminated unit"

I presume that this means eliminate up to two Shadow units who are engaged in the battle ? ie I can't eliminate units on the other side of the board.

This would seem logical but I don't know if it's some kind of long range magic / dark power blush

Similarly for Onslaught


What I love about the game so far is the logic that you can apply to solve most rule queries (as it has a strong theme) but in this case I am not so sure of the intent.

Thanks! sauron

The effects of combat cards apply only to units, leaders and/or Characters engaged in that particular battle. This also means that any such figures left behind in a rearguard by the attacker are not affected.

I'm glad you're enjoying the game!
