I have a couple of questions for you guys:
- When infantry assaults a tank, are they allowed to shoot another unit before the assault?
- Do bikes only assault 6 inches?
- If a tank tries to move in it's next turn after an assault, are the units assaulting it tank shocked or just moved out of the way?
1. If the infantry shoot another unit, they must assault that unit. The unit must shoot at the tank and then assault.
2. Bikes (and jet bikes) do not assault farther then other units, calvary and beast are the only ones that are allowed to assault farther then 6"
3. The tank only tank shock if it declares it. Otherwise a tank cannot move through enemy units (pg 68 ). If the tank does tank shock then the unit it moves through can move out of the way if they wish (and also pass the moral check).

1) No, any unit that assaults must shoot at the models it is assaulting.
2) Yes, bikes only assault 6".
3) It depends on the movement of the tank. If the tank moves through the enemy unit, then it is regarded as tank shot. If not...then no.

Just noticing a trend in this forum to NOT include page numbers for rules solutions.
I know that it’s far quicker initially to ‘shoot from the hip’ but in the end it’s actually slower and less intuitive.
1. Page 33 paragraph directly above the picture,
2. Page 33, the standard assault movement is 6” and nothing from page 53 ‘Bikes’ changes this,
3. Tanks being assaulted use the normal rules for ‘Vehicles and Assaults’ page 63 and if you look at the rules for Tank Shock page 68 you will see that the Tank simply must come into contact with the enemy to use that rule.
And honestly now, I thought that asking for rules like “What is the assault distance for bikes,” was really frowned upon here.
Has this changed recently?
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
