Since psykers can only use one power a turn. Does that mean even the once that does not require a leadership test?
Synapses for tyranid is a psychic power. Does this mean that while a tyrant alway has Synapse it can't use any other psychic power? That doesn't seem right.
If there is a rule or faq on this please give source and page number.
Synapses is a physic power that is active at all times, it doesn't require a model to use it. So, it doesn't take up the one action of use.
Think of it as a passive ability, same reason why a psychic hood can't stop it, or ruins of warding from eldar can't force the synapses psychic ability to roll dice. The same goes for eldar warlocks psychic abilities that don't require a leadership roll (conceal, etc..).
Tyranid and Eldar player....don't ask me how I ended up playing these two armies, just smile, nod, slowly move away and don't make eye contact!
I totally agree and understand. 4ed rule have the major and minor psychic power difference, which is great, but it is not in 5ed.
There are rule lawyers out there that will say "show me a rule that said I can do this". Is there a source that I can point to?
If you are talking about synaspe it is in the Tryanid codex. it will tell which pshyic power require a test. Same goes for Eldar and Chaos .
I hope that helps
Reread p50 more carefully. It does define "using a power" as using a power that requires you to take a test, in a backhanded way. No test = you have not 'used a power' in the eyes of the rulebook.
Even if the wording wasn't there, any rule lawyer who tried to claim that you couldn't use the second psychic power should have whatever it is that is lodged surgically removed.
Really? My unit can take another psychic power but can't use said power because I'm always using the default power? Come off it! Logic must prevail.
