An interesting situation came up. My Death Co. assaulted a squad of guardsmen, yet they guardsmen survived the combat with one man left, and passed the ld test. His shooting phase came up, and he decided to shoot his Bassie at the area next to the combat, and it "accidently" scattered into the combat killing the lone guardsman and the Death Co. I allowed him to do it, but is it actually legal?
He can't simply target a spot on the terrain, he has to target one of your units and then guess the distance to it. A squad in close combat can't be chosen as such a target.
If he actually did target one of your units, then it's still considered a very very bad sportsmanship to intentionally misguess so that the shot hits the close combat. Besides that, if the shot scattered into that close combat, then the models in fact get hit.
yeah thats the sort of thing that warrents low sportsmanship.
I have ponderd this for a while but I think if the IG player buys a commisar and he is in a unit with a vox-caster, I would think he could order the bassie to fire.
This could/should be an upgrade for IG vehicles.
I did this once against Kharne. Him and and a squad of bezerkers that charged which is never good were completely tearing up my tactical squads and chaplin. I let it play out for a few turns he killed just about all of my marines like 3 were left and my chaplin. I had managed to get 1 wound on kharne and managed to kill most of the bezerkers. He did his assualt phase and killed the rest of my marines. Seeing how it was very little chance of winning with a chaplin against kharne and 3 bezerkers. So i fierd my whirlwind and it happened to land in CC. How lucky. Killed the remaing bezerkers but kharne lived and I Lost the battle. hah Another good one is if a rhino has its wepons blown up and he already deploed his men then just drive right at a squad. Hope for a D6 explosin and you have a tank bomb.
