Hi all, (I play as Imperial Guard)
It has been a long day so I apologize if this is clearly stated but can a Command Squad with 4x Plasma Guns in a Chimera which has x amount of Firing points can it shoot with a Plasma Gun if the Chimera only moved 6"? Thanks.
Armies: 40k: Imperial Guard, Orks Fantasy: Skaven
Yes, they can shoot. Fire points can not be used if the vheicle moves at cruising speed but 6" is combat speed.
Not 100% sure (as none of my Eldar vehicles have fire points), but aren't the troops inside still subject to the same # of weapons/speed as the vehicle itself?
i.e. Can fire all weapons if stationary:
1 Weapon +all defensive if Combat speed
No weapons if Cruising speed.
I thought I had read that in the Dark Eldar and some other forums. Worth verifying at least.
At the beginning of turn 1, I spray my opponent's army with the bacon flavored spray. Then I unleash my Boston Terrier Squiggoth who then devours their entire bacon flavored army! There is no defense against her cuteness! All are doomed!
They are fireing from the vheicle but are not the vheicles weapons so would not be effected by the vheicles shooting rules.
The only qualafier I could find was that the models inside the transprot count as moving if the vheicle moved, this would restrict the use of heavy weapons.
As well, that the plasma guns would only be able to rapid fire 12" because the vehicle moved up to 6"

Vehicle and unit inside are two completely separate entities, so the "distance moved = so many weapons may fire" rule for the vehicle does not apply to the unit inside. However, the vehicle can only move at combat speed if the unit inside wishes to fire any of its weapons, and the normal rules for these weapons still apply: shooters count as moving if the vehicle moves, so heavy weapons may not fire and rapid fire weapons must fire up to their maximum rate at 12" range.
The number of passengers which may fire from a fire point is specified as 1 in the rulebook (P.66) with no others permitted to fire, but this rule may be overridden by the relevant Codex entry (for example: P.76 Codex SM permits >1 model to fire out of a Rhino).
