Some 40K rules clarifications from Pete Haines . (18 Replies). GW-Hivemind (Tim)[email@example.com]. 11/18/2004 10:20 (11/18/2004 20:24)
We'll get this into the FAQ, but here they are first :)
We'll keep it sticky for a bit.
> 1 - Veil of Time Psyker Power - re-roll ALL of the listed tests, or ONE of ANY of the listed?
> 2 - Techmarine
> a) can take Rhino/Razorback without taking Servitors?
> b) can take Servo-harness and jump pack? Or S-h and bike?
> c) can take Servo-harness and Terminator armor?
> #1 - Should the rules for the Land Raider Crusader from the Space Marine codex replace the entry for the Grey Knight Land Raider Crusader from the Daemonhunter codex? Infernal Device on Chaos Land Raider - work the same?
> Also for other codexes where landraiders are taken as transports (DH, WH and Chaos), do these idential vehicles count as scoring units as well?
> #2 - Should the rules for teleport homers from Space Marine codex replace the rules for teleport homers in all other codexes (i.e. Daemonhunters, Chaos)
> More of the cross referencing, also with the stormshield (and the identially working Prasedium Protectiva).
> Does the Commander's 'Rites of battle' ability work when he is in a transport vehicle?
> What are the conventions for the Libarian's familliar? Is it a seperate model with its own base or just modeled onto the libarian?
> And if he has a bike/jump pack is he slowed down by the familliar.
Model it onto the Librarian/ No
> On a related note, it would also be nice to know if all Imperial Dreadnoughts (i.e. Space Wolf Venerable, Grey Knight, Furioso, Moriar, etc) have access to Drop Pods in Standard Missions per the new SM Codex.
If they have access to drop pods they use the new rules
> Daemon Hunter Mystics and Drop Podding SM - whom does the Retinue target with their "free shooting" - the Drop Pod? The Squad/Dreadnaught that jumped out?
Either but not both
- Tim & Pete (big thanks to Pete here)
More coming too folks.
Some more from Pete & Andy, originally on B&C too I think:
Codex Dark Angels Characters:
1. The C:DA characters are replaced by those in C:SM. Are we correct in assuming that the following?
Grandmaster (C:DA) by Master (C:SM)
Master (C:DA) by Captain (C:SM)
Hero (C:DA) by None
That is correct
2. All Grandmaster only items in the C:DA are now available to the Master character in the new system and are not available to the Captain character.
This is not stated in the FAQ but should be. The assumption is correct
3. A character in terminator armour who is accompanied by a terminator command squad can deep strike in any mission regardless of whether the mission allows it.
4. All Dark Angel characters in the new system MUST purchase terminator honours and the stubborn ability as part of their profile. Does this count towards their wargear points cost?
If it is an ability detailed in the armoury wargear section then yes it does. So terminator honours yes, stubborn no.
5. All Dark Angel characters in the new system MUST purchase terminator honours and stubborn as part of their profile. But the Chaplain is Fearless. Does this mean the Chaplain pays only the cost for Terminator Honours and does not buy the stubborn quality?
Stubborn confers no additional advantage so this seems reasonable.
6. All Dark Angel characters MUST purchase terminator honours and stubborn ability. However, if the character buys a terminator suit (which has terminator honours included in it) they only need to purchase the stubborn quality in addition to the terminator armour.
7. If the chaplain MUST buy the stubborn quality, then does that quality override the Fearlessness?.
8. The Blades of Reason are available to both levels of Chaplains in the new system.
Dark Angel Special Characters:
9. Do Dark Angel special characters gain the basic qualities of the characters in C:SM? ie, does Azrael, The Grandmaseter and Master of Ravenwing all have the quality â€śRites of Battle? Similarly does Asmodai have â€śHonour of the Chapterâ€? and â€śLitanies of Hate"?
YES â€“ This is stated for Asmodai.
10. The sword of secrets is not a â€śRelic & Artifactâ€? Therefore it can be taken in addition to one of the Relics and Artifacts listed.
11. The specific Dark Angels Sacred standards (Standards of Fortitude, Devastation and Retribution) in the DA: Codex replace the â€śSacred Standardâ€? entry in the Relics and Artifacts section.
12. Do the Blades of Reason fall under the category of â€śRelic & Artifactâ€??
NO â€“ only the items listed in the FAQ
Deathwing Army List:
13. Deathwing may take a Techmarine as an elites choice provided he is given terminator armour and the stubborn quality.
If so, can he take the servo-harness while wearing terminator armour?
14. Can a terminator armoured chaplain take the Blades of Reason ?
NO â€“ they are not * on the DA wargear list
15. A Deathwing army may deploy using drop pods for their terminator, terminator command squads and dreadnoughts.
Ravenwing Army List:
16. Ravenwing bike squadrons will continue to use the point costs, unit structure and unit weapons options specified in C:DA
17. Ravenwing attack bike squadrons will continue to use the point costs, unit structure and unit weapon options specified in C:DA
18. Ravenwing land speeder squadrons will continue to use the point costs, unit structure and unit weapon options specified in C:DA
19. Can Ravenwing Land Speeders Deep Strike as regular C:SM Land Speeders can?
16. Ravenwing may take a Techmarine as an elites choice provided he is mounted on a bike for the points cost specified in C:SM
YES / NO
If so, can he take the servo-harness while mounted on a bike?
NO â€“ this was not the intention, I will add it to the FAQ
