I feel a little foolish posting rules questions for such a simple ruleset, but here I go:

1) In Overwatch will a Space Marine fire every time a G'Stealer moves or every time a Stealer expends an AP? The rules state that a Marine fires every time a Stealer makes an action... I suppose my particular question is about a 90-degree turn. This costs no AP for the Stealer player; does it also provide an Overwatch-fire opportunity?

2) The missions state the number of blips that start lurking off-board and the number of blips the Stealer player receives each turn as reinforcements. To begin the Stealer player's first turn does he or she receive those reinforcements?

Thanks,

A

I'm no expert so I shouldn't answer, but I'm bored so I'd say
1)it get shot at every time it moves regardless of whether it spends action ints or not

2)no

Never feel bad about making sure you understand a rule. There are a lot of great games out there, but not a lot of great rulebooks.

Yes, you fire. Keep in mind that turning 90 degrees is a "free" action but it is still an action. This is a vital component to Overwatch.

Also remember that all Terminators on Overwatch HAVE to fire. So if you have 2 Overwatch'ing Terminators covering the same square, and a 'Stealer moves in that square, they both have to fire. So if the first Terminator rolls the needed 6 to kill, you sill have to roll for the other to see if his bolter jams.

Thanks, guys, for the answers. I broke down and bought SH off eBay recently after looking longingly at it for years. I'm a happy geek.
