Say my Callidus assassin (from Daemonhunters/Witch Hunters) uses her Neural Shredder on a mob of 30 ork boyz (or any orks for that matter). Do I use their natural LD or the Mob Rule collective LD? I'm under the impression it should be their natural LD. Btw, for those not familiar, the Neural Shredder (NS) is a temp weapon which compares its Strength ( against the target's LD instead of T for wounding.
Actually I was looking this one up a few weeks ago:This would seem to imply the mob rule applies to unit tests and not individual models, but Ork wierdboyz are allowed to use mob size for Psychic tests. As the Psychic test is the only real precendence, I'm gonna have to say that the mob rule will affect what you need to wound Orks.Ork mobs may always choose to substitute the number of Orks in their mob for their normal Leadership Value.

Right, rules lawyer hat on.
For a rule to be valid it must be valid for all situations.
So let us say that there are 14 Orks in a mob that have the option to claim a leadership of 14, fine.
Then we factor this into the Neural Shredder rules that use a normal ‘To Wound’ chart.
Do you see a valid solution of the value of 14 on that chart? Or indeed any value there above 10? In fact the rules explicitly deny extrapolation with any of the characteristics (except where stated) and any value approaching the maximum has no effect.
This leads me to believe that the Ork Special Rule of ‘Mob’ says that they ‘may’ substitute their number for the leadership – where applicable.
And it can’t apply in this case.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
