Welcome to Librarium Online!
do you think that unit can attack in close combat out of an open topped APC? since the vehiecle has no roof so when i flies up to a enemy unit and lands the troops can attack out of it?
I believe he is talking about doing close combat attacks with the passengers when they are still in the raider...
Interesting observation, but brings up several questions. How would the unit attack back and what die roll would be required to hit them? Would the Raider be locked in combat or can it move away? Would another unit be able to shoot the Raider?
heres an idea, you can move 12 max into combat without shooting for that unit and the raider lands right infront of the enemy (note: LANDS) and attacks as normal with models WS, and units attacking back may direct its attack on the vehiecle or the units, and all hits on vehiecle are glancing hits and hits on 6s because it moved over 12''. thats just a thought
If it lands, it's logical to remove the 6 to hit and glancing only stipulation (as with other downed skimmers).
this is a totally naff idea guys
its unofficial for starters..
house rules are unofficial too but people discuss them.
DE can attack out of raiders, cause they are open top. as long as they don't move to far.
I think it would be a cool special rule that would allow them to get say 1 cc attack, if the raider they are in passes over a enemy unit. the unit could get one return attack but would have to get a 6 to hit them, cause they are on a skimmer. It would keep with the style of the army as a fast hard hitting raiding force.
ok john your right i do rule.
i think that you should be able to equip your raider squad with either whips or chains so that they can fight from the raider. thatd be cool
