Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've just started 40k, although I've been wargaming for decades. Nice to have a change of scenery from the standard WWII battles.
Question: sharpshooters doctrine. I' have sene it applied to IG tanks (because they are BS3) on these boards. Is that legal? It just says in the codex that it can be applied to any guard infantry model with BS3, but in the definitiions in the codex it specifically excludes tanks from the "Guard infantry" definition.
Anyone withany definitive statement on this?
no it canot be used by ig tanks only imperial guard infantry squads with at least one model with bs3 so that excludes vets, stormtroopers and tanks seeing as their not guard infantry. it defines what guard infantryt means on the first page of the doctrine thing
I suppose you could, but sharpshooters would only affect the BS3 models so its not very effective point wise.Originally posted by Guardsman 173rd@Mar 8 2005, 16:21
So if you have say a priest attached to a veteran squad then you could use sharpshooters, right?[snapback]347025[/snapback]
nup, that's why sharpshooters is best spent on heavy weap support squads.
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
You can only use the sharpshooters doctrine for infantry models with BS3.
I definetely have to agree with Triumph Of Man. Heavy Weapons are the prime weapon you want to hit the enemy.

Wood Elves 1-2
which is making better use of that re-roll? on say, a lascannon, where that one shot needs to hit, or on a heavy bolter, where you will pretty much always get to use the re-roll.
that's the thing about perfection, it can only get worse.
