Here are a couple of rules that came up in last game. Also would like some feedback on something that came up in the game.
JJ typing, 40K RULEBOOK v1.5 September Page 8
Q: If a unit disembarks from a destroyed vehicle during the enemy turn, can it Charge in the Assault phase of its own turn? (p80)
Context: Khorne Flesh Hounds assaulted a Rhino with five Purifiers. I was under the impression that Purifiers can assault on their turn. Connor thought differently. We couldn't clearly find in the rulebook. Wasn't til looking this up later and finding this in the FAQ that Connor's assumption was correct.
Walkers Overwatch 40k6 pg 84 repeat from link: 2012.10.16
Unlike other vehicles, Walkers can fire Overatch
Context: Soul Grinder was charging Psyflemen. .
Template Weapons, 40k6 pg 52. Requesting feedback.
Template weapons are indicated by having the word 'Template' for their range instead of a number. Instead of rolling To Hit, simply place the template so that its narrow end is touching the base of the firing model and the rest of the template covers as many models in teh target unit as possible, without touching any other friendly models (including other models from the firing model's unit), Any models fully or partially under the template are hit. Against vehicles, the templates much be placed to cover as much of the vehicle as possible without touching a friendly model. The position of the firer is used to determine which armour facing its hit (see page 73). A Template weapon never hits the model firing it.
Context: See above pic. Herald wanted to use a flamer on Purifiers who were sitting in the wreckage of a Rhino. Opponent wanted to cover all the Purifiers. He could only get four when template was touching the side of the base nearest to Purifiers. He then moved template so narrow end touched far side of the Heralds base so it would cover all five. We had a lively, friendly and damned funny argument about it. Including the pictures of template weapons on pg 53. Requesting feedback. Where can you put the narrow end of the template?
Spellduckwrong, here's a pic of a Wave Serpent panel Ushabti Bone faded to Flash Gitz Yellow. What do you, and of course others, think?
