    Rules Lawyer: Whats the call on barrage on multi-level? Are they only able to select the top level (to be covered by the hole) as in the previous edition, or can they go down to any level?

    • iNcontroL July 5, 2014 9:43 am #

      Reece is the authority here but I am 99% sure the ruling is you pick a level but it could be any level.

      You select 1 level that you want to hit. It doesn’t have to be the top level.

        Except barrage is coming from above, which is why in 6th it hit the top level. If they are ruling limits to levels for blast/template similar to 6th then wondering if that means barrage follows the same logic.

    I heard on the Adepticon interview that the BAO is going to be at the flamingo this year? When is information about the LVO going to start leaking onto the site? I’m curious if there’s going to be a group rate and stuff like last year?

    ..or am I being dumb and just not seeing it?

    thanks sirs..

    Really good episode, good discussions and banter. I think the show’s the best when you guys start talking about stuff, on topic or not, and get away a bit from just listing news and having a short comment on it. I don’t mind the show being a bit longer. And Geoff’s great, have him on whenever you can!

      Couldn’t agree more.

    Did you guys notice that apocalyptic blasts act like sudo barrage? I was reading through the USRs and such and I’m not sure if I just never noticed this last edition but the Apocolyptic Mega-blast has cover determined from the center of the blast…this negates a lot of the cover options that you guys field from what I see in your bat-reps.

    Just something to consider.

    Also the hellions have ObSec since they are troops in this case thanks to the Baron.

    silly guys, remember i wrote and said if you use my list to use the second list because i was more attached to it lol.

    Glad to see someone got there army back after it being stolen. My army is still in the wind but on the plus side my home owner insurance covered it so as of right now my desk and several tables are covered in boxes and boxes or guardsmen. As soon as I’m done putting them together I’m bringing them right back up to you guys to paint them a second time.

    Haha Geoff was on the money, the guy sold the army for 20 bucks. Happy that one of our players got his army back!

      That’s funny that he guessed right. But, glad Joe got it back, that is awesome.
