Was just browsing through the WH-codex when I realised that the Vindicares Exitus Rifle seems to still rule under the "old" sniper rifle rule (hit 2+, wound 4+, no rending but AP 2) since it is explicitly stated in the Codex. Do I interpret that correctly? It wouldn't be the first time a case of different rules was in effect on some wargear.
Unless there's official errata/faq to say otherwise... Codex takes precedence(sp?) over what's said in the rulebook, so the Exitus Rifle should work as per the Codex.
The joys of having an out of date dex. Ridell is very much correct.
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
Yep, still 2+, AP2. Same as the Grey Knight Force Weapon still being able to kill everything in the game.
Isn't he BS5 anyway? With an AP2 rifle isn't it kinda redundant anyway? ;P
about it being rendingOfficio Assassinorum Operatives
Q. How does the Vindicare’s turbo-penetrator
round work in regards to rending?
A. Because sniper rifles are rending, when rolling
for armour penetration, the Vindicare gets to add
a D3 to the total for each dice that comes up a
six. So, if one of the three dice is a six, the total
penetration would be 6+2D6+D3+3 (giving a
result between 12 and 22); if two were sixes, the
total would be 12+1D6+2D3+3 (18 to 26); if all
three dice were sixes, the total would be
18+3D3+3 (24 to 30!). Almost certainly

when it says "because sniper rifles are rending" it seems to imply that you do follow the normal sniper rules.
The weapon is type-classed as a sniper rifle, so it would function in exactly the same fashion, just with a slightly different stat line, unless of course you chamber the special rounds. Naturally against infantry targets the rending means little since you're already AP2.
