Hey Tau players,
I'm posting this on behalf of a friend so I didnt get a chance to look to see if this question had been answered in the past, so I do apologize in advance. We are just looking for some clarification on the rules for suits and having jet packs and what not. So when suits make their "assault move" its done on foot and cannot be used to jump over houses and like the like, correct?
"I'll have a steak and donut sandwich"
"Do you want cigarettes on that?"
"What do I look like? A Mary? Of course I want cigarettes!"
Battlesuits Assaulting???? Blasphemy!!!!!!!!!!
i have assaulted with battlesuits before, i would list my CC kills with tau but its actual quite alot and includes a wraith lord, an orc warboss, and harlequins =] oh and just so you know i DONT use O'shovah, just a regular Shas'O.
Fantasy : Empire, Chaos Warriors, Chaos Daemons, Vampire Counts, Beastmen, High Elves, Lizardmen( but i have opinions on every army just not the money)
40k: Black Templars, Imperial Guard, Dark Eldar, Tau (thinking of Eldar)
I think there is a confusion as to what "assault move" means. If you are talking about the second movement phase in the assault phase (pretty sure you are) where you aren't assaulting anyone, then the entry says "Treat difficult terrain like any jump infantry", which I take to mean you can move over it without difficulty, but if you land in it, you have to take a dangerous terrain test.
If you mean moving to assault someone, then yeah, that's made on foot
Sorry to put myself between the hammer and the anvil, but the answer is no. It's not clearly stated in the rulebook, but since jetpackers treat difficult terrain as jump-pack equipped infantry even in the 6" assault-phase-move (not assault-move), it's somewhat logic that they use 'jump' to fall back to safety. However rules (p.52) for jump infantry regarding assaults, state that it is done on foot. So it is either Jump-Shoot-FootSloggingAssault or Jump-Shoot-Jump.
