Does anyone know where I can find a reference to the arc of fire for the hard mounted Chimera lasguns?
I use 90 degrees to their own side (3 on each side). If this is true then only 3 can fire at once since a squad can't split its fire?
Also I know that troops firing from a moving vehicle count as having moved so the lasguns can only fire twice not once at long range but does the fact that they are hardmounted like space marine bikes change this?
I know that these guns don't really ever have much of an effect on the game but I was just wondering. thanks in advance for the help.
they must be within LOS of the side that they are mounted on, as for the range they will count as being stationary so may fire up to max range, though with a 12'' move why you'd need to i don't know

Becouse a squad can only fire on one unit at a time unless specifically allowed via codex (Space Wolfs long fangs).Originally Posted by Korim Trucebane
breath, sight, squeeze.
now double tap just for grins

A bolter round for all that oppose the Emperor.
There is pretty much no reason whatsoever to actually assemble the chimera with the lasguns. The hull space would be better spent putting cargo and tow ropes etc on there to look cool.
3 lasguns shoot left; 3 shoot right; turret, pintle and hull weapons shoot the same target but can be different to the lasguns. That is what I think it should be.
"they're coming from the left!"
[whole squad inside the tank pile across to the left side windows to have a peek]
"oh yeah they are too, we should shoot them"
"no wait, they're coming from the right too"
[whole squad inside the tank pile across to the right side windows to have a peek]
"ok shoot the righthand side ones because we're on this side now"
This is the level of organisation from the regimented Imperial Guard.
In the codex it mentions nothing about arcs of fire at all...
so in GW Winchester Store, the rule they use is that its not mentined in the codex, they can shoot in any direction as long as they can see and have the range..
but to be brutally honest...6 lasguns...hardly going to end the world are they?

This sounds right and logical but where did you get it from? Do you have a reference. Would this count the same for hurricane bolters on a LRC?Originally Posted by Decado
In an hour of darkness a blind man is the best guide. In an age of insanity look to the madman to show the way.
i think so yes..
and the reference i do believe is in the rule book around bout the viechle shooting bit
"i pity the poor fool"
I think it still counts as movement when the vehicles moves, so the lasguns fire only once..
