I keep hearing about new assault rules and I read somewhere that they screw over the tyranids leaping ability. Can someone describe what the new rules are and how they effect the tyranids?
No more then anyone else, and actually probably a good deal less since Tyranids are generally not a shooty army. The only problem is the fact that most of the gaunt weapons are 12", so the only time you'd even get a chance to shoot them is right before you assault, but thats about it.
i think he means the all modle within 2" count as base to base. so ya for leaping that sucks,as the greath thing was all your modles within 2" get full attacks and not just supporting. but for lash whips .
The "rock throw" rule is still in effect. Leaping is still an advantage. Without it, models outside of base to base but inside of 2" only get 1 attack.
damn cheating dark elder bastards!.
sorry my friend must ahve umm "miss read" the update.
Yeah but the New rules does screw our Monsterous creatures and their abbility to target PF weilding vet-sergeants.
However it still is possible to kill the PF before the rest of the squad, 2inch kill zone, it is just alot harder to do so. <_<
How victory may be produced for them out of the enemy's
own tactics--that is what the multitude cannot comprehend.
"Quantity has a Quality of it's own"
So your enemy cant take guys from the back of his squad to die?
The best bit about the new assult rules is that after you move the closest model into base contact, you can move the rest in whatever order you like. That means you can pout the ones at the back of the squad into contact with the front of the enemy squad and the rest can envelope them, meaning less chance of models out of range to attack
Thats pretty kinky. I wish they would just up and decide if the rules are legal.
