Tactics Corner

Rules Lawyer

  • Hi there.
  • The rules for Canoptek Artillery for the Assault phase are not used if an Independent Character has joined the unit. In this instance you would use the normal rules for Artillery in the Assault phase from the 40k rulebook.
  • Sentry Pylons may not Snap Fire with Focused Death Rays.
  • Your example of multiple Pylons with Focused Death Rays shooting at a unit is correct.
  • The Jink rule may not be used against hits from a Focused Death Ray
  • If there is anything further we can do to assist you, or if you have any queries about the information we have requested or provided, please telephone us.Regards,
  • Forge World

    Great episode guys, HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRONTLINE, oh and Cicero was Romam not Greek 🙂
    And I have a feeling that when you change Invisabilty for the Fronline tournaments that more people and not less will come to the events

    And to help sell big models GW changed the BRB for WFB to be able to take 50% lords and/or 50% heroes in normal non endtimes games

    Doesn’t the toxicrene have toxic miasma as well, essentially making it a MC venomthrope? I could be wrong, as I haven’t seen the rules for it yet.

    miasma is a 4+ poison attack that hits everyone in b2b with the model 1x per game

    Can you Look Out Sir the wounds from a Focused Witchfire? They aren’t ‘allocated’ per se, the effect is ‘resolved’.

    I have a suggestion for a petition. I formally petition that “iNcontrol” is on every show. He should be a permanent 3rd chair.

    InControl! The new Nid release is a god send!

    I also second Geoff should be on as many podcasts as possible.
