Darrell has a look at wobbly model syndrome. It’s one of the rules that seem’s to get forgotten in Warhammer 40K.
As long as you apply some logic it shouldn’t be a problem – infantry on low walls? No Problem, Dreadnaught balancing on a crate? No chance – the crate would collapse
I agree that completely clarifying things before you play is a must. However, are there really players that would be that upset about something like this? Forgive my ignorance but I haven’t run into any around where I’m from.
BUT – Taking a squad of heavy weapon guys and standing them on a small ledge to give them a height advantage? I can’t even do that with my paintball gun! The thought of some performing this feat of acrobatics with a futuristic rocket launcher is out of the question. Yes, that is total cheese.
I guess this goes back to the first rule explained in the beginning of the rule book lol
At least if you stand your devastators on a wall to get a height advantage you lose your cover save so your opponent has the chance of shooting them or moving whatever they needed the extra height to target before they blast it …
i feel like your digging at me darrell for the webway portal comment on turn 8 lolz
I am just curious as to why the Wraithlord has a 40mm base.
You have to use the base provided with the particular model you have purchased.
If you have a model purchased in the 1st/2nd edition you have to use it with 40mm square base. If you bought your model during the 3rd edition, you have to use the round base as in the movie. Only the plastic wraithlords have to use larger bases.
I think it’s uber-silly, but this is what the rulebook say.
In 4th ed you were allowed to use a larger base then the one provided but this was abused a lot with characters mounted on “skiis” ie. very long bases so that you deployed in parallel to your board edge and then when you made a free 90deg turn you were in the charge range with the front of your very long base
Ah okay. i was aware of the use the base it comes with but not that wraithlords every had a 40mm base.
haven’t come across this problem yet, but it’s something I haven’t thought about before
I tend to resolve most issues like that with a recording of the song Surfin Bird on my phone. After 5 seconds they will agree with me just to turn that screech off!
I thought LOS was taken from the models eyeline hence line of SIGHT? Why would it make a difference that the heavy bolter was behind the wall and lascannons weren’t they can all draw LOS.. if not then all my heavy bolters will be the old school ones from Forge World lol. I have no rulebook to hand but I am pretty sure only vehicles draw LOS from the actual weapon firing.
The weapon doesn’t matter but LOS is measured from a models head. Extra inch may allow you to see over that small piece of terrain that the tau battle suit keeps jumping behind.
the spirit of the game flows within you….
