I'm unclear on how the Oliphant and the Lightning Warmachine move. When one of these pieces make two leaps in row, do both leaps have to be the same distance, or can one be a one-space leap and the other a two-space leap, allowing the piece to move three spaces? Are these pieces simply short-range riders, or can they make two captures in a move?
