No.356 by Dominique Forlot – A nice Masand-Miniature with AUW! (JV)
Masand: A unit which moves and actively checks changes the colour of all the units – enemy and its own (not Ks) – which it observes after the move. A checking rear (non-moving) piece of a battery would not recolour the units it observes.
