Personally... I would find it more confusing to add what Dalamar said. Perhaps it's subjective after all? hm?

Perhaps it should have been written as:
"First shalt assign the Holy Flame Breath to a target unit. Then shalt thou measure to six inches from the dragon, no more, no less. Six inches shall be the distance thou shalt count, and the number of the distance shall be six inches. Seven inches shalt thou not measure, neither measure thou five, excepting that thou then proceed to six inches. Eight inches is right out. Once the distance of six inches, being the sixth inch, be reached, then lobbest thou thy dice of Antioch towards thy enemy models, who, being within the distance of 6 inches and naughty in My sight, shall snuff it on the roll value of 6."

Indeed, this has been a long proven way to measure.

Some people just cannot count:
Geek: 0, 1, 10, 11, 100, 101...
Military: 1! 2... 1! 2... 1! 2... I want to see only one head!
Musician: one! two! one, two, three, four!

Only long time gamers know how to count that far.
- 1, 2, 3... :?
- yeah, that's good, proceed on!
- 4, 5?... :|
- sure, finish it!
- 6, 7, 8! :)
- yes, you made it!
- 9, 10, jack, queen, king! :D

If you're ever lawyering rules in AoS you're doing it very wrong. The game is actually a blast.

So much this.

AoS is not intended for a hardcore competitive environment. Its rules appear to have been written for a playing experience that does not encourage rules lawyering or That Guy-style behaviour. If you are trying to interpret a rule to gain an advantage in a game, and that interpretation is contestable at best, your opponent is unlikely to have much fun playing against you.

That said, the rules would be vastly improved by being drafted in the manner suggested by Daeron.

Great but you're completely wrong. Dalamar's suggested revision means precisely the opposite of what he intended to mean, and what you seem to think it means. There is little wrong with the GW line (it aint perfect but it aint this bad either). This thread has become the definition of :badh:

Exactly AoS just isn't "that game" anymore.
