    Ok. Call me dim, but I’m a bit confused with the new pile in rule. Has anything actually changed?

    “Piling in has changed (very slightly!) to work with the new, official base-to-base system, to allow you to get as many models into combat as possible. Where previously, you could only pile in towards the closest enemy model before having to stop, now, you can pile in even if you’re right next to someone* – provided you don’t move any further away from the nearest enemy model.”

    *someone? Who?

    Like I say, dim!

    The only thing thats new is now you are now allowed to make a pile in move even if you are already in base contact with an opponent, because you just need to be "as close to the nearest model", which basically makes it possible to surround an enemy :)

    Precisely... and in my opinion, it's a HUGE change to the rule.

    It is.
    I used to deny a lot of attacks by putting chaff models into base contact with enemies, thus preventing them from piling in around my models. That's not possible anymore.
    Especially pure melee lists (like for example all Ironjawz lists) will like that change.
