Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have thought about using star engines and started to wonder about how they really work? Can you move fast and then use them? It states that in lieu of shooting, does that mean you can only use them if you have moved 12in. or less. I don't move my bikes 6in. after a turbo so are the tanks any different.
Can fire prisms move fast and still combine power with a fire prism that can fire?
Pretty sure you can Flat Out and use them, you just can't disembark or shoot.
Fire Prisms AFAIK cannot combine beams unless they're voluntarily giving up their shooting, so shaken/stunned ones can't and neither can flat-out moved tanks.
Thanks just saw that on one of the other threads, sometimes I just can't find them whenever I am looking.
Also, since the movements are executed in different phases, you could, for example move your tank 13" out of the way of a friendly unit (to get a flat out move cover save) and then Star Engine 12" back, obscuring the firing unit again to ruin LOS or get a cover save on that unit.
Oh yeah, the star engine screen. You aren't going to make many friends with that one, but man does it work wonders when bladestorming CC units. Here you go khorne berzerkers have a blade storm, oops tank in the way can't assault. Bummer.
Peek-a-boo Bladestorm FTW!
