I asked Rob Baxter to go into a little more detail about the Reflex portion of the Sedition Wars rules.  Rob is the game designer for Sedition War ruleset.  I was wondering how they were going to work and if there there would be something like Overwatch in the game.

"There are units that can effectively go into an Overwatch like mode based on two factors.

  • How you position the model
  • How the models reflex trigger is set off

While in reflex mode, a model with a reflex trigger can activate abilities under certain conditions, like when an enemy model moves into line of sight or ends it's movement near or adjacent to a model. Basically a conditional trigger. When this happens, certain abilities kick in.

So yes. You can have models that can guard a hallway, cover a retreat, or effectively enter overwatch over a specific lane of fire."
