Does this capture the intent, @Xotli ?

I wouldn't call it incorrect. To me, this is no different from referring to the movement phase but still allowing for the possibility of the figure not actually physically moving. If you don't want to attack with one of the ants that moved, that's fine; you just can't attack with anyone else instead either.

But your rewording seems fine to me.

Re: The Book of Xualtiaca Fire Ants

Why would you ever use Swarming to move and attack with an Ant when you could just move that Ant normally though? I don't think it'd prevent something like Engagement Strike. Just kind of seems like a waste of 3 Move.

By using swarming to move, and not activating figures using movement, you can choose any ant you control to attack with, instead of being restricted to the ants that moved. That flexibility can be valuable.

You could have a situation where there are many potential targets to attack, but one is higher priority to kill, so you want to be able to attack that one a bunch of times, but move on to attack others if it dies quickly. Or you could be facing goblin cutters and you want to be able to attack with any ant instead of allowing your opponent to scurry away from the active ants.

I'm not saying it would come up all the time, but there are definitely times when I would forgo regular movement to gain activation flexibility when attacking.

Re: The Book of Xualtiaca Fire Ants

That makes sense I guess. Sort of a mini Horde Attack.

Re: The Book of Xualtiaca Fire Ants

can every ant choose what to do? one does the sting and another one attacks normally in the same turn. or do i have to do the special or normal attack with all of them?

Re: The Book of Xualtiaca Fire Ants

It's all or nothing. You can attack with 3 Ants, or Sting with all the Ants.

So if you have a crapton of them engaged, stinging is a great idea (and Swarming sets that up well).

Re: The Book of Xualtiaca Fire Ants

Forgive me asking what might be a silly question:

According to Swarm Sting, you roll the d-20 for each enemy figure adjacent to an ant you control, and you have to roll an 18 or higher - simple enough. But if you have only one ant engaged to a figure, do you need to roll a 17 or an 18 to put a wound on that figure? I'm assuming that because of how the power is written, you would only need a 17 because then you add 1 to make 18. Am I understanding correctly?

That is correct, you only need a 17, since the sole ant would give you +1.

Re: The Book of Xualtiaca Fire Ants

Just realizes these are perfect counter to rats - as long as he Rats don't scatter all away.

Also, I assume yes, but does SWARM STING 18 work indefinitely as long as you keep rolling for it (similar to how Frenzy works) or kill all figures, or just one time.
