Welcome to Librarium Online!
Riddle me this...
all with Flechette Dischargers.
move flat out in front of a 30 strong squad of Ork Boyz...
30 models attacking 5 vehicles, each vehicle's flechette discharge reacts...
so I am thinking... 30 boyz (assuming they all get into range) would be 150 dice, wounding on 4+ ?!?!
I've read it a couple of times and I can't seem to find anything to say "Hey, you can't do that!" ?
seems a tad overkill no? illegal?
It's legal, but why on earth would the boyz assault?

Maybe because they're right in their face? Yeah, standard boyz wouldn't be assaulting vehicles unless they had the equipment to get the job done nice and proper. It's a nice thought though.

Orks often have to assault vehicles to remove them. Once we Tau eliminate their Loota threat, the vast majority of Ork armies rely on power klaws to krump vehicles. Flechettes are a great discouragement for that.
And let's not forget the new Tyranids. While their shooting has drastically improved, many of them will still want to assault to eliminate armour. When you can wipe out gribblies by the dozen and put wounds on MCs making the attempt, flechettes are looking better all the time.
They have become de rigeur upgrades on my vehicles. Just like disruption pods.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

Well, if Mad Doc is in the unit, they HAVE to assault it... if the Ork player doesn't know about it... he would!! if there's 5 skimmers BLOCKING your Boyz, you want it DEAD! ...but they Boyz can't possibly survive that!! lol And its 1D6 for every model in combat with the vehicle... so you're lookin at a 350 point unit, but some hilarious results imo. the Boyz can't go AROUND it.... go thru it, lol
