Ok, a rule id like clarifying about stealers and tanks. (This came up today and ive probably been cheated again!)
I attacked the back armour of a pred. Rolled to hit, got a 6. now i thought you got to roll another die, add it to the six, then add the attackers strenth to get your penetration result. Is this right or am i completely wrong? He said I could only add the 6 to the 5 (The extra die i got for rending) and that was it.
And a double post! You're all kinds of trouble 'round these parts, aren't you?
To answer your question - the Rend against a tank doesn't happen until you roll for Penetration. Not on the To-Hit roll.
So it'd go like this - You roll to hit (or autohit, depending on the tank's movement.) Then you roll for penetration normally. Any rolls of a 6 will rend, and you'll gain the bonus.
Missed a part. You also add your strength of the model to the roll, like always. Nothing takes that away.
On tanks, rending works differently. You first roll to hit, or if the tank hasn't moved, you don't have to roll. Then if you hit, you roll for ap. If on this roll you get a 6, you may roll another ap dice, add both dice rolls to your strength and the combined number is your ap.
Here is an example:
Stealer attacks chimera that has moved
3 attacks, roll a 4, a 5 and a 1
2 hits, rolls a 6 and a 2
The 2 is added to the strength and doesn't pierce. The other stealer gets to roll another dice.
Rolls a 3, adds the 3+4+6=13
Edit: I gotta write shorter posts so people don't beat me to it:rolleyes:

Sorry for caps, im really mad! That should of been my game! I hate cheaters!
Yup, you can move straight ahead with PotMS and if you've moved under 6" you can fire one weapon at a reduced BS. Many people (including myself) forget that PotMS only allows you to shoot if you've moved under 6".
"The internet perceives censorship as damage, and routes around it."
Ass.Cannon attacks chimera that has moved
4 attacks, roll a 4, 6, 2 and a 1
The 4 hit rolls the following for AP: AP = Str + 1d6
The 6 hit rolls the following for AP: AP = Str + 2d6
In theory the rending hit can still fail to damage... roll 1s on each d6: Str6 + 1 + 1 = 8
So to be clear, I should be rolling to hit and any AP roll of 6 allows me another d6? I dunno... Sounds too powerfull. Your way guarantees penetration:
Str6 + 6 + d6 is a min AP of 13!
I gotta check my rulebook when I get home.
Once you check the rulebook you should realise that rending works differently for shooting and close combat. CC rending lets you roll extra dice if you roll a 6 for *penetration* (requiring the target to be hit first). Shooting does this if you roll a 6 for the *to hit* roll. Hope that clears it up. And I hope I haven't broken copyright...
