Ok this is one that came up regarding the AEGIS defence line.

The person I was against said that they must be placed in a loop I.e. there must not a free end. The end and start must be touching

Now I am not sure that is correct. His argument was that the rules say each bit must be touching another bit (meaning another to the fort one it is touching)

I don't think this is correct and it only needs to be places so that one edge is touching at least one other section

What are your thoughts?

No, the Aegis can be a straight line if you want it to be.

The only reqirement is that there are no gaps (ie you can't place individual sections "alone").

Straight line is fine. Confusion probably comes from the photo in the rulebook

So long as every section is touching another, and everything is connected through each other (ie. not divided into 2 aegis lines), yours doing it right.

You can do some interesting stuff to maximise potential cover saves from barrage ;)

Yes, Liam used that to good effect when I faced him at the GdPA



With the defence line, I was pretty sure i was right, and his argument was all based on the wording of it saying "another" section i.e. it has to be touching another one to the one it is already touching.

It was one of those where I could just tell he wasnt going to get it so I didnt really make a drama out of it. But I thought I had better just check it out.

because it really effected my deployment, especially for a relic mission didnt help.

You are right - each section only needs to touch ONE other section - i.e. a line of defences is fine
