Can Boon of Mutation be used on a Hive Tyrant with Tyrant guard.
The Tyranid codex says that a hive tyrant cannot be picked out with a guard there.
I would assume this is for things like Telions shooting
But does it also apply to Boon of Mutation (that one says pick any model)
Not sure on the exact rules for boon of mutation, but if you (the nid player) gets to pick what model it hits, then yes, you can put it on a guard instead of the tyrant.
Yes, I did deep-strike your sister...
Necrons : W-8 D-3 L-7 (Sleeping in their TombFoam, waiting for a new codex)
Chaos Forces (CSM/CD): W-42 D-19 L-28
Apocalypse Games : W-4 D-0 L-1 (4 Titans, Brass Scorp, 3 Baneblades, 2 Bombers, 3 Fighters, and a Partrage in a Pear Tree)
The tyranid rule says:
A hive tyrant with a tyrant guard may not be picked out as a separate target from it's unit despite the fact that it's a monstrous creature.
The daemon rule says:
Pick any one enemy model (no line of sight required) and roll to hit.
The nid rule doesn't specify where the hit would go if it were to come in anyways and the daemon rule does not mention anything else in that regard.
Just seems like the daemon rule is made to pick out units that you normally can't pick out and the nid rule is made to prevent it from being picked out by units that can. So I'm confused. Thanks for the input so far. Anyone else?
The 'nid rule is from an outdated version of the rules where you could always pick out and shoot Monstrous Creatures. The qualifier is part of the rule. You can't just read the first part and ignore the qualifier. He can't be picked out due to being a monstrous creature. He can still be picked out for any other reason that would allow him to be picked out.
Ah, thank you sir!
As I and my friend are new to the game we are not aware of 4th edition rules and it seemed confusing.
This means that telion, vindi assassins and boon of mutation can all target him. They could also, for whatever reason, decide which specific tyrant guard they wanted to hit if they wanted to.
Dont forget mindwar..
As of Tyranid 5th Ed. codex I have the Gaunts I wanted. I did, however, loose the sniperfexs I relied upon and they were more important then the gaunts.
