Static Defence Network:
After it is set up, an Aegis Defence Line (excluding its gun emplacement, if any) is treated as a terrain feature. It cannot move for any reason, is not treated as a friendly or enemy model, and cannot be targeted or affected by any attacks or abilities.
This model cannot move for any reason, nor can it fight in the Fight phase
. Enemy models automatically hit this model in the Fight phase – do not make hit rolls
. However, this model can still shoot if there are enemy models within 1" of it, and friendly units can still target enemy units that are within 1" of this model.
Unless a friendly INFANTRY model is within 1" of a gun emplacement, it can only target the nearest visible enemy unit. If two units are equally close, you may chose which is targeted.
Defence Line: INFANTRY units within 1" of an Aegis Defence Line, and behind it from the point of view of the firing unit, receive the benefit of cover.
When charging a unit on the opposite side of an Aegis Defence Line, the charge is successful if the charging unit can move within 2" of that unit. When resolving fights between units on opposite sides of an Aegis Defence Line, units can be chosen to fight and make their attacks if the enemy is within 2" instead of the normal 1".
