6th ed Rules of the Game: Leman Russ and Power of the Machine Spirit

Last set of rules from first game at Dark Star.

Imperial Guard FAQ page 3

Page 48 - Leman Russ Battle Tank, Lumbering Behemoth.  Replace this Entry with the following : “A Leman Russ follows the rules for Heavy Vehicles on page 83 of the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook.”

Heavy Vehicles; Shooting with Heavy Vehicles 40k6 pg 83

For the purposes of determine which weapons a Heavy vehicle can fire (and at what Ballistic Skill), Heavy vehicles are always treated as remained Stationary.

Context: Was under the mistaken impression that Leman Russ Executioner can only shoot its turret and an additional weapon when moving.  Probably stuck in 5th ed.  Space Wolves player educated me about the change to Heavy.

Power of the Machine Spirit 5th Space Wolves Codex pg 44

(this one always seems to get me)

A Land Raider can fire one more weapon than would normally be permitted.  In addition, this wepaon can be fired at a different target unit to any other weapons, subject to the normal rules for shooting.

Context:  Space Wolves opponent had assault cannon on Crusader shoot at a different squad than Hurricane Bolters.  Like the Lewis Black joke with alzhimers and candy corn, I keep forgetting about this rule.

  1. Way to drop a Lewis Black reference. To be honest, I enjoyed the "A Starbucks across from a Starbucks" jokes more. :D

    1. Was hoping someone would remember it. The end of the universe jokes are awesome.
