    We arnt allowd 1 word answers
    To be honest timeim not actually sure, i always assumed that since the codex says on page 8 "A creature withtwo or more ranged bio-weapons may only choose to fire one of them per shooting phase" Notice it says "Ranged Bio-Weapons(i belive this is a bit of an error)" The bit on the next page about warp blast says "The creature can attack in the shooting phase INSTEAD of a ranged bio weapon"
    Which basicly sums it up as: No

    So... you can fire 1 thing per turn even if you are a HT with warp blast VC and deathspitter(or any other ranged weapon).

    It* is clearly stated in the codex: Silly Question D


    *My tiny correction from I to It

    No. You can only fire one weapon per turn, the warp blast counts as a weapon.

    NO.

    Take warp blast. It can get penetrating hits on vehicles and melt marines without allowing an armor save.

    I basically agree. Though Warp Blast has its place and works very well on a CC oriented HT as he closes in.

    But with 3 shots, even just being able to glance a vehicle is often quite enough to do the job. VCs rock!

    The attacks thing is basically worth it. 1 attack S5 AP3 blast 24" or S10 AP2 single 18" vs 3 attacks S8 AP4 ? Youll be shooting sooner and more often. And it suppliments your anti vehicle department, in which we are seriously lacking. For Marine killing use Zoantrhopes.
