    Half a dozen noobish questions

    (1) A terminator with 2 attacks assaults with a flamer (Assault 1). Does he get two attacks with his flamer? Or just one (because it is Assault 1) plus one generic non-flamer attack?

    (2) An infantry model with strength 5 assauls with a flamer (weapon Strength 4) and hits. In reference to the "To Wound" table, is the strength to use 4 or 5? I know if the weapon was a normal non-template one, the model strength would be used, but this seems counter-intuitive in the case of a template weapon.

    (3) A unit declares an assault on an enemy unit. The closest assaulting model is precisely 6 inches away from the closet defending model. Other models in the assaulting unit are not within range. For the assault move, are all the assaulting models moved into base contact? or are they each strictly limited to 6 inches of movement?

    (4) Can their be two independent characters in a unit? For example, can I have a space marine tactical squad with both a librarian and a chaplin in it?

    (5) Is a sargeant/captain an independent character?

    (6) If the pay-load of drop pod has disembarked and it is empty, can the drop pod still fire it's weapon? And if so, who is actuating the weapon?

    Faithfully,
    Sean

    1. The Termy will get one flamer attack then if he moves into assault he will get his two attacks. The Assault refers to a profile of weapon in 40k that allows you to shoot then charge. The assault weapon does not factor into your actual melee combat.

    2. The Flamer doesn't actually factor into close combat.

    3. They all move as close as they can into close combat a max of 6 inches they don't move anymore then that at this point. All models within 2 inches of an enemy may fight.

    4. There can be 2 independents in one squad.

    5.The squads sergeant is not an independent character.

    6. The drop pod can fire and it is automated.

  4. ThanksCaptain Corrigan thanked for this post.

    There can be as many independant character as you want in a squad. In fact you can have a squad made out of as many Independant characters as you can field.

    As already stated, it's limited to a 6" move.
    But after the assaulted unit's Defenders React move, also 6", the front line of your unit should be fully in base to base contact.

    The flamer's profile is only used when shooting, when in assault you use the attack characteristic on the terminator's profile.
    (2) An infantry model with strength 5 assauls with a flamer (weapon Strength 4) and hits. In reference to the "To Wound" table, is the strength to use 4 or 5? I know if the weapon was a normal non-template one, the model strength would be used, but this seems counter-intuitive in the case of a template weapon.
    A ranged weapon's str does not apply in assault, you would normally use the terminator's base strength or any cc weapon they have such as a powerfist
    (3) A unit declares an assault on an enemy unit. The closest assaulting model is precisely 6 inches away from the closet defending model. Other models in the assaulting unit are not within range. For the assault move, are all the assaulting models moved into base contact? or are they each strictly limited to 6 inches of movement?
    Each is restricted to their 6" move, do note however after your unit has made it's assault move the opponents unit must consolidate up to 6" to get into contact with your models as well. Also models within 2" of a model in base contact with an enemy still get to attack despite not being in contact.
    (4) Can their be two independent characters in a unit? For example, can I have a space marine tactical squad with both a librarian and a chaplin in it?
    Yes, in fact you can make a unit comprised of just independant characters as well
    (5) Is a sargeant/captain an independent character?
    No/yes, only models with the special rule "independant character" are.
    (6) If the pay-load of drop pod has disembarked and it is empty, can the drop pod still fire it's weapon? And if so, who is actuating the weapon?
    No, any vehicle that deep strikes counts as moving at cruising speed which would prevent the drop pod from firing. To clarify however, whether or not a vehicle has any passengers embarked has no bearing on a vehicle firing it's weapons.
    Faithfully,

    Hopefully this helps
