I did some searches and didn't find a post that talked about this specifically. So hopefully I'm not repeating something.
I noticed in the entry for the SM landraider, it calls the front door an "assault ramp". I was unable to find anything in the SM codex about that though. Can marines assault out of the landraider, even if it moved? If so, is it for both power armor and terminator marines?
Does this rule also apply to the chaos landraider?
OK cool. I still need to check my chaos codex for their landraider rules.
Do you measure the assault distance starting from the front edge of the vehicle, or from the edge of the ramp?
If chaos has this too, then I'm thinking having some Khorne termis charging out of a LR would be cool. At least for me.
Thanks for the reply
As for measuring distance, you have to deploy the models inside as if they were disembarking. This is done during the movement phase and follows all the rules for disembarking (can't be within 1" of an enemy, has to be 2" of a hatch, etc). Then during the assault phase you measure the assault distance and assault as normal (i.e. difficult terrain, apply grenade modifiers, etc). I've ran against a particularly nasty rules lawyer who screwed me over when I forgot to disembark during the movement phase. So don't forget to disembark during the movement phase. Oh and this allows the models inside to shoot after they've disembarked (if they can shoot after movement in the LR and assuming they can shoot and assault).

"The internet perceives censorship as damage, and routes around it."
So you have to disembark them first, then do the assault? You don't just move the vehicle and then in the assault phase just assault from within the vehicle?
Not that I'm complaining actually, because as you said, then you can shoot first, and then assault.
