    Whirlwind Castellan Mines

    When a vehicle gets hit by, or travels through, a mine field it takes a hit on 4+. But thats only a str6 hit, most vehicles are av 10 in the rear. Do I roll an extra d6 and add it to the mines strentgh?
    I've read the tactica, very helpful btw, and did a search but I couldn't find the answer.

    Yes.

    When attacking a model with an armor rating you add the strength of the weapon, plus a D6 for armor penetration to see if you get through the armor. There are a lot of things that modify that first sentance but but for the question you asked:

    Enemy vehicle moves through the mine field - on a 4+ it's hit by a S6 weapon on the rear armor. Roll a D6 for Penetration. Is it equal or higher the the armor value of the vehicle? Lower? - No effect, Equal? - Glancing hit, Higher? - Penetrating hit. Roll for damage on the appropriate damage table and continue play.
    May your aim be true, and your targets plentiful.

    Do vehicles and troops take a hit (on a4+) when the mines are placed for the first time, if they are under the template?

    I do not believe so.

    I'm pretty sure that models only take a hit if they move on the template.

    Exactly.

    So, while you can fire at a unit, it will not suffer from the mines unless it moves from that spot. This includes assault moves, fall back moves and any other sort of move.

    Efficiency VS Point Cost VS Ease Of Use - Your best bets:

    1) Chaplain led Assault squad - 2 plasma pistols, powerfisted sergeant

    2) 8 man Devastator squad - 4 missile launchers

    3) Land Speeder Tornado - HB + AC
