Sergeant facing diagonal?

Fans of Legions of Steel - a boardgame designed by Clark Browning, Marco Pecota and Derrick Villeneuve – will be happy to know that the French developers from Studio Nyx have revived the eternal war between the Empire of the Machines and the factions from the Milky Way.

Sergeant facing diagonal?

Post by bcell » Wed Aug 30, 2017 4:10 am

Hi guys,

I'm absolutely blown away by this game. Sadly the manual is skimpy, while these kinds of games rely heavily on knowing the precise rules, so I have a question.

In my second mission I noticed that my Sergeant is facing diagonally instead of up/down or left/right, as you can see by the little blue arrow in the screenshot.
Did I just press some hotkey by accident and this is a feature? Or is the Sergeant made to face diagonally always?

Any ideas welcome!


PS
Slitherine has been in my bookmarks for years, I was just afraid to start playing their games because they're so good! ARGH! :)

I went thru the tutorials very carefully and read pretty much most of the PDF manual, but never during the tutorial was I able to face diagonally. Or maybe I just missed that single one dialog box... Since I won't be doing the tutorial all over again for sure, I can only hope someone can tell me how this works! Thanks :)
