do the bikes get an invul. when turbo boosting in the new rules?(I can't get my adobie reader working)
Bikes can use a turbo boost, that means they move 24inches and get a 3+ invunerable save, but may not shoot or assault that turn
Can scarabs boost and do they get an invul.?
I am unsure, it does say that Scarab Swarms move as a jetbike so that indicates yes. However you will probably have to wait until the rulebook comes out and they release codex specific updates pdfs (note: these are not new codexes, or major revisions they are just to bring things up to date with 4th edition and clear up some conflicts).
When Bikes/Jetbikes Turbo-Boost, they do not get a 3+ invulnerable, their normal save becomes invulnerable, so in this case if Scarab Swarms were able to Turbo-Boost they would get a 5+ invulnerable save.
that would be nice, since they die to bolter fire easily...
The changes revised section of white dwarf states that bikes and jet bikes can turbo boost up to 24" but cannot shoot or assault.
The very next paragraph then states that Jet Bikes can always move in the assault phase.
Therefore as long as you don't assault someone you can turbo boost your 24" and then move another 6" in the assault phase with a Jet Bike.
Poor wording or correct?
Great, turbo-boosting scarab swarms... how lovely...
