Ok i need someone to tell me
Say a Dark ELdar Raider moves 18 inches in its movement pahse (nstead of 24 inches) can the models inside get out and assult after that (WYches with combat drugs i guess) Just wanna know cause that would mean they can charge uto 36 inches which is totally annoying
note that it is a de raider which is also a skimmer so flat out speed = 24 inches not 18
SO on that note does it still happen considering the vechicle is open-topped as well
Page 57 will give you all the normal information about “Vehicles and Movement,” and you will see that 18” is not there, its on page 70 as I said.
And on pages 70 and 71 you will find the description for being “Open-Topped,” and this has nothing to do with any movement rules, and “Skimmers” that are fast which have an extra movement category of between 12 and 24”.
18” happens to fall nicely into this category of being ‘Fast,’ so the answer remains - no you can not embark or disembark whilst moving fast.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
I know you asked me this today, but I'll lay it out for you.
Anyway, back to the topic.The Raider is a Fast Open-Topped Skimmer, as you already know, benefiting from the characteristics of each. Due to being Fast, they can move up to 18", and due to being Open-Topped, passengers may disembark even if the vehicle moved previously and assault. They may not move. Therefore, if we take into a account with Wyches, assuming that they have rolled the 12" Assault move drug, we can calculate the maximum movement rate:
This accounts up to a 32" total Assault move. (evil cackles of maniacal laughter). What more could you ask for.
- 18" Vehicle Movement
- 2" Disembarkment
- 12" Assault Move
Anywho, I hope I have shed some light on that topic!

Dear Game Developer,Caps-Lock, its like cruise-control for AWESOMENESS!
Rock is cheese, Paper is just fine
WWP and other Dark Eldar how to
WHOA Hold up...Us Dark Eldar can move 18" and then our troops can JUMP OUT? And SHOOT? THEN ASSAULT? I thought it was still 12"!?!?!?
R U 0K!??!? BUHHHHST WUUUULFFFFF!!!
I thought there was a rule that you could not disembark after moving more than 12" but I can't seem to find it.
that means a wyche squad in a raider could move flat out (24" see page 71, the line just before the heading saying Shooting at Skimmers)
Shoot or fleet
Charge 6 or 12" (depending on drugs used)
max charge distance?
24 + 2 + 6 + 12 = 44" !!!
