Hey guys wondering if gk dreads and razorbacks can have psycannons I know forgeworld sells them but there's no rules on them in the codex. And if they can are they worth taking?
In that on something which is relentless an Assault cannon is relentless with Psybolt ammo is a psycannon yes you can have them. In the more literal sense of taking something with the same name no you may not.
What does relentless mean? And I don't quite understand what you've said
Relentless is a special rule that allows allows a unit to fire heavy weapons even if they have moved, or assault if they have fired heavy weapons (terminators and monstrous creatures have it).
Vehicle wise you can make them, and some people swear by them as a psycannon is more effective at vehicle hunting that a Lascannon because at low armors you get multiple shots, and at higher armor values you can rend to penetrate.

But am I able to use the heavy psy on the dread and normal psy on the razorback of so were do I find the point values and can I only give them psycannons in woof games
You cannot give the heavy (and I think the non heavy version is better).
you can use assault with psybolts and use the FW bits to rep them, though.
Forgeworld have updated rules for them on their site http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Download...knightsupd.pdf They aren't cheap though.
As for being allowed to use them, that will depend on your local gaming scene. Here for example, if I had a pick up game at the club, or a game with a mate, then so long as I am polite enough to ask first, they would be OK with it. Tournaments is another thing though. You would have to contact the TO ahead of time and ask. Once again, that would be on a case by case basis.
I think people are confusing you.
An assault cannon with psybolt ammunition has the exact same stats as a psycannon. You put the forgeworld psycannon on your models and say it is an assault cannon with psybolt ammo when you play.
Tau my love! You are back!
Thanks lol I understand now
