After going through the vehicle damage results on crew, I have a question which I'm hopping someone can help me with.
My question is what happens to a crew if a vehicle suffers a Destroyed- Explodes?
On pg61 of the WH40K rule on a note at the bottom; says that a crew is destroyed if the vehicle suffers either Destroyed result, however on pg67 "Effects of Damage Results on Passengers it indicates that the crew suffer a pinning test and take a Str. 4 hit.
I'm confused and hope someone can help me with my question.
There is no mention of crew in the part you quoted, the crew is an integrated part of the vehicle. What they reffere to is if you have a vehicle which is able to carry troops is wrecked or destroyed whilst having models embarked.
So in the case of you quotation (explodes), the models that was embarked in the transport will suffer a str 4 hit and take a pinning test.
Are you referring to the damage table which have: Crew - Shaken and Crew - Stunned? If so its just flavour text, it have no real impact on the game other than the rules which is written under them, the Crew part is just to give you a brief view of what happened to the vehicle and for imagination.
On the Chronus part, he is a normal model in all respect other than when he is bought which is whit a tank.
No, the part I'm referring to is at the bottom of the page where it states:
"Note: Vehicle drivers, gunners and other crew are killed
if their vehicle suffers either Destroyed results"
Either way I now understand that they take a str 4 hit, just didn't understand why the rulebook would have this at the bottom of the page, and wanted to check to see what it might be referring to.
Thanks for your reply's

I think it's only there so people don't say, "Oh, my vehicle is wrecked, here's X new models that climb out and continue the fight". By putting that note in there, they're indicating that once a vehicle is out, so are it's crew. Only passengers have a chance of surviving a wrecked or destroyed result, everyone else imagined to be in the vehicle is considered lost.
