Welcome to Librarium Online!
am i reading the rules wrong??
page 25 tau codex;
"All models with battlesuits must take a number of battlesuit weapons and/or support systems, as detailed in their army list entry. These may be in any combination, up to any point cost within normal limits. A model in a battlesuit that has access to the Armoury may also choose up to 100 points from the Battlesuit Wargear list. No model can pick the same item twice, and all equipment, other than wargear (which is assumed intergrated) must be represented on the model"
my question is when it says "No model can pick the same item twice", are they refering to just wargear, or weapon systems aswell?
personally, i think they are just refering to items from the wargear list, for two reasons...
1) in the codex, choosing a weapon is refered to as "select three battlesuit weapons SYSTEMS" and choosing, while choosing wargear is "may select ITEMS from the Battlesuit Wargear list". Therefore, it is my feeling that this is how these two options are refered to throughout the codex, therefore when it says "No model can pick the same ITEM twice", they are only refering to wargear.
2) again from page 85; "No model may carry three of the same weapons system", so to me, this puts the limit of identical weapons system at three, not two.
if i am wrong, please let me know, i don't wana get to a gaming table and be told im wrong there, id rather be told now so that i can change my lists
thanks in advance
you can not have the same anything.
You can not have 2 missile pods because that is a twin-linked missile pod - Price next to individual price.
so you could have T-L missile pod and a flamer and choose which one to fire each turn as no multitraker(unless HQ)
but you can't have T-L MP and a missile pod ( even if you put it on a HQ and got HW MT)
So no other than twin liked versions nothing can be repeated on any 1 battlesuit.
otherwise you could have target array and hard wired target array on HQ and have a rediculasly high BS (even those higher than 5 means 5)
Tau: 6K - W17-D3-L4, Orks: 4K - W9-D0-L2, SM: 7K - W7-D3-L4,CSM: 4K W5-D1-L1, Nids: 3.2K W3-D0-L2
Apoc games (mixture of armies used): W5-D0-L1
yeah the more i read it, the more i see i was wrong
as soon as a model has two of the same weapons systems, it automatically counts as twin-linked
and nobody else's list has XV's with two non-twin-linked identical weapons
well thankyou librarium-online if it wasn't for you i woulda got in trouble at a tournament
Glad he cleared that up for you. No rulebook-to-the-face at your next tourney for you, then.
