it says in the codex that you can mount a squad of firewarriors in a devilfish. But it doesnt say that it costs additional points to have a devilfish. Usually, because it is a specail option it would acutually have to say that it is additional amount of point. Also under the pathfinders it says you have to pay an additional amount to have it. This is proubly just a typo in the codex.
The cost IS in the codex, and yes its in addition to the unit cost. For the pathfinder, its mandatory.
That's the reason why the Devilfish entry is in the troops section of the codex!! So you can have the Fire Warriors in a Transport at the cost of +80 points, just like it says in the entry!! Oooh, glad I got that out of my system..... Anyway, no offense to anyone....
thanks for clearing that up for me
yay im a scout!
Iâ€™m not a big fan of vehicles and wish I could have the pathfinders arrive via deep strike. Maybe a flight or jump packs at 10 points each would be nice.
OR how about bikes instead of the devil fish? :huh: Maybe GW will come up with 10 point bikes that the pathfinders ride in on and then dismount to fight. Or just run things over! :blink:
An bike with a side car so the passenger can use its weapon or marker light! Now that would be a great fast attack option. :lol:
I figure I might as well ask my devilfish-related question here (well transports in general I suppose):
once a squad disembarks from the devilfish, can the devilfish go off on its own? or does it need to keep coherency with the squad it was transporting?

You know, I never thought of that. Isn't every vehicle a squad on its own? So can it leave the unit and transport another unit? OH NO!! I have so many questions now!! Please, someone answer them!!
Ask em in the right forum, (not this one), and you'll get more answers.
Anyway, while I'm here.
A transport is an indepedent unit for all practical purposes, (capable of holding objectives and moving freely, no unit coherency required).
A transport is bound to its unit though, for purposes of transporting. That's a ruling that was explained in the Trial vehicle rules and asserted in a FAQ I think, so it's official.
Feel free to play otherwise of course, but check with ur opponents first.
Oh, and @delta:
I don't think it's a typo, that's the way all transports are listed in all of the codexes IIRC. The reason the cost is listed for the pathfinders is because the transport is listed in the troops section I think, and because you *have* to take it so they just wanted to rub it in that they're making you waste 80 points for a bunch of firewarrior wannabes. :blink:
^^^ yah i didnt think if it was a typo i just didnt know what to call it....
But now i have another question.....
When the firewarriors disembark can they use the full 30' of their weapons that turn?
This is the exact question i had today in a game, seeing as if you disembark BEFORE the vehicle moves you can move the troops as normal but we reasoned you'd count as moving for the purposes of weapon firing.
