Please help
Just played my farrow against trollbloods everything was going great until this happened.
Madrak ironhide was in combat with Brine when my opponent decide to throw madraks axe at one of my slaughter housers
killed him and then this opened up his asassination run on to carver with his only other mini on the table. Madrak was still in brine's melee range
Can you make range attacks on other models when you are in combat?:D
Thanks for your help

In general, models cannot make ranged attacks while they're in melee.

While some models can get around this via special rules, Madrak is not one of them.

I also have to say that the thrown attack should not have happened... As Madrack was engaged... And has no special rule to let him make the attack while engaged.

page 56 of prime. "A model in melee cannot make a ranged attack"

pg56 Primal
"A model in melee cannot make ranged attacks."

pg56 Primal
"Ranged Weapons in include bows, rifles, crossbows, throwing axes, cannons, and catapults."

Both under the section titled "RANGED COMBAT".
