    Biovores and Spore Mines

    Spore Mines can be set as Fast Attack choices or be fired out of a Biovore.

    Spore can deep strike onto the field of battle, then move D6 and a scatter die to move them, but a Biovore shoots them at the oncoming enemies.

    Can Biovores fire these but not aim the enemy? I've used this many times and it has kept The Emperor's Champion at bay, giving me more valuable time to get closer, but I've been thinking about this alot lately and I am not sure whether I've been cheating or not.

    So can my Biovore fire a Spore Mine onto the feild and have it act as if it was eep striked in, or does my Biovore have to fire directly at the enemy?

    No. You have to target an enemy squad, if it drifts off the squad thats ok, but you can't fire at an empty area/piece of terrain, etc.

    You used to be able to fire at any piece of terrain (with any bombarding weapon). That is no longer the case, you must fire at a target. However, if the mine misses it comes into play as if it had deepstruck and landed on that location.

    Ripped Off!

    That's a shame, I enjoyed building a wall of mines.

    And if they drift off and they are destroyed, does my opponent get VC's?;?

    From Spores launched by Biovores, no, as they're just ammunition fired by the 'Vore. The Spore type chosen adds to the cost and thus the VPs gained from damaging/killing the Biovores in question, there's no need to calculate points from Spores detonating around the battlefield.

    As for FA Spore Clusters... This is where it gets difficult. Considering their whole purpose is to make contact with an enemy and detonate, I can't see why they should give opponents any VPs. However, by the rulebook they would be classified as a Non-Vehicle Unit, and thus they give VPs from being destroyed/detonated as I can't find any reference in the Codex mentioning otherwise.

    Uzi is right. They do give the opponents VPs if they die. It does seem a little odd though since they can't capture table quarters or count as scoring units, so you get no points for keeping them alive, but your opponent gets them if they kill a suicide unit

    By the way, good to see your still around Uzi

    The real oddity is that the opponent gets the VPs even if you as the Tyranid player detonate the Spore Cluster, or if the Spore Cluster hits a target and detonates... As they're removed from the table post-detonation, and they are a unit that you paid points for.

    And heya Warrior47! Nice to be back, at least for a while. Don't know how active I'll remain, but at least I'll try to take a look around a bit more often than once every six months. ^_^; Can't recall if I've seen your Mod badge before, so congrats!

    No, that's my avatar, I just pretend I'm a mod (although it has fooled a lot of people so far) Anyway, being around some is better than nothing.

    Barrage

    Seen as in the 'Nid Codex it states that the Biovore is a Barrage weapon, does that mean I have guess the range or can I up to 48"?
