    Beasts and buildings

    hello there,

    last friday i played a 40K game against an eldar army 1000 points with my space wolves. i haven't been playing 40K for a long time and use a list with a lot of wolves and thunder wolf riders. these units are beasts and cavalry type units, and my opponent said these units cannot go up or down storys in buildings and ruins. i expected him to be right because he's a very experienced player, but when i looked in the rule book some time later, i couldn't confirm anything of it.

    my question: can anyone confirm it that beasts and cavalry connot go up or down storys in buildings and ruins, and please give me the page where i can find it.

    thanks a lot

    You won't find a quote in the rulebook that says "beasts and cavalry must not..." because it is a permissive ruleset. That means something does not need to be outlawed explicitly in order to be illegal. Instead, something has to be allowed explicitly in order to be legal.
    Unfortunately, the rulebook allows "only infantry, jump infantry, jetbikes, monstrous creatures, and walkers" to "move on the upper levels of a ruin". [Page 83, big rulebook.]

    Buildings are an other issue entirely. Buildings can only be used by infantry, because they work like transports and in fact are nothing more than stationary, neutral transports that can be embarked on by either army. [Page 79, big rulebook.]

    Beasts and Cavalry move like Infantry (page 54brb) but do not have the unit type of ‘Infantry’ assigned to them so they may enter the lower floor of a Ruin only.

    Perhaps this is where the confusion is coming from.

    Cheers.

    the objective wasn't on the second floor but in another area terrrain, but he had a unit of eldar rangers and a farseer on the second floor. i thought i could assault it with canis wolfborn and some wolves, but i was wrong. i'm thinking of altering my list a little, the only units in my army who can go to higher storys are grey hunters, the rest is tanks, fenrisian wolve and thunder cav. i'm thinking of dropping one of the four grey hunter units, and ad a rune priest a a unit of scouts to contest and be annoying

    thanks
