so when is the insight test called?.
the instance the first member of a group comes into view.
also is this test taken every time a group is re spotted ie if they move back into cover then out again.
No. The insight test is called only for the first time in the round. The two figures that already have seen themselves will not trigger a new insight test.
When you do a new activation roll then this all is "reset" and new insight tests will happens.
so the two inches are for when a group is sighted they can reposition or move out of sight etc?.
Imho, they are more to allow the whole group to sort out and fire.
Without that movement the "head" of the group will be always alone
hard to find any examples of play or battle reports here or on youtube.
The best you can do is to go to the THW yahoo group and browse 3-4 years of message. You're not alone asking for clarifications
I bought 5150:SA and found some difference from the Core 3.0 rules (minor differences, and in the "better" direction - one of them is a "better" insight test-) so i'd buy and learn the ones you need, if the main mechanics seems right for you.
At least in 5150 they're explained from the ground again, so you don't need the 3.0 core.
