I just noticed the wording in the Landraider entry in my codex and it says
"Can take any of the following:
-a hunter-killer missile......+10pts
It says take "a" not take one. If I payed the points could I take as many of them as I want? I always just assumed it ment "can take one" but if you take the wording literaly it doesn't limit you.
What do you think?
i think "can take any" makes it clear that you can take any number of them, the rest of the rules always say or where necessary
Each of those options is listed once. You can take "any of the following", but you're still limited by what is exactly listed in the following.
Yes, "a multi-melta" is a singular item.

Oh well. I might still do it in a friendly game just for the LOL's.
If you were my opponent I'd let you do it - you can only fire one multimelta while moving and most of the shots have to be at the same target so go for your life. You'll got a 500pts of egg in one pretty useless basket.
Surely if you could take more than one the term "a" would not be used. "A" is a word that automatically makes the next word singular (i.e. "a fish" rather than "some fish" or "many fish".
I get so sick of the english language being twisted by people. In this case the meaning is obvious! (No offence).
(If you were allowed more than one the passage would most probably read;
"Can take any number of the following:
-hunter-killer missile(s)......+10pts (each)
Self-explanatory I think).
I was going to ask the same thing thanks for the info
