    This rules question doesnt actually concern Orks that much and IG much more.

    What prevents me from doing this. I havent found anything myself.

    You got Leman russ. Big honking Battle Cannon and 3 Heavy Bolters.

    You fire your bolters at your target with BS3 since you havent fired ordnance.
    Then you fire your battlecannon.
    If you’d do it other way around then the bolters would fire snap shots.

    This would actually make Ordnance-russes with sponsons so much better. Demolisher with Multimeltas and lascannon would be very good vehicle-sweeper.

      Hey,bhey, good catch! I think you’re right.

        The subtle changes with big effects keep adding up.

      “a vehicle that fires an Ordnance weapon can only make Snap Shots with its other weapons that turn”

      It doesn’t say “Later that turn” or “Subsequently” or anything like that. If you fired other weapons at full BS first i’d say you can’t legally fire the Ordnance weapon after. Otherwise we may as well just get rid of that rule from the rulebook, as every vehicle could just ignore it.

    If I have Kromlech models, and I come to a tournament with an army using them, are they legal?

      i should think so, as long as they look ‘like’ what they are sposed to be. bring the sheet to tell your opponent what they are. (reece ok’d me using dream forge minis)

    Btw Reece, if you use the Ork Codex formation (9 troops 3 HQs) I think you dont get Obj. Secured

      Ah yeah, you are right as they are not in a CAD or allied detachment. Bummer.

    I need to actually read 7th ed before the BAO. 😛

    • white925 June 29, 2014 1:22 pm #

      Yeah that would probably be a good idea!

    Also, The Bloodrager is a Magic/Barbarion Hybrid. He has rage and can use spells
