I've been stuck unable to play a game so I started to theory machine a Scaverous Tier 4 (add 2" to my deployment) game vs. a retribution list (35pts)my friend runs. It's a standard deployment SR 2012 scenario. He has Rahn, 2 Phoenix, Battle Mages, max Sentinnels, Arcanist and Assassin, etc. I have Scaverous, Reaper, WSC, WWS, Erebus, Skarlock, Wraith Engine, Nightwretch, Iron Lich Overlord. He goes first and runs everyone forward. I assign 3 focus to the Reaper, 1 to the Nightwretch. Skarlock Tk's the reaper. Nightwretch runs forward, Scaverous Tk's a Phoenix (boosts to hit) and moves it 2" forward. I walk the Reaper forward and harpoon the Phoenix. If everyone moved correctly my tape measure should be tickling the front edge of the Phoenix at EXACTLY 8" away. Do I get the shot or not? If the tape measure touches the base of the Phoenix ( or overlaps it by a 1/4") that means someone has moved too far. Did I cheat? Did my opponent cheat? Am I just Neurotic?
Has this were happened to you in a tournament?
If you were a TO how would you rule it?
If I get it then I wreck the Phoenix, dark industries it into a Seether, WWS power boosts it, it charges the other Phoenix, chain attacks hit and I double handed throw the Phoenix into Rahn (which hits - of course because this is theory machine) I boost damage on Rahn rolling 3 6's.
If he gets it, the Phoenix and battle mages wreck the reaper on his feat turn.
