Welcome to Librarium Online!
in the eldar codex on the jetbike section it says that:
"up to one in three jetbikes may replace their shuriken catapult with a shuriken cannon at +20pts per model."
so does this mean that i can use 2 shuriken cannons if i have got 4 jetbikes, or do i have to have 6 in order for this to work. seeing as how im from sweden i'm having problem decifering this text.
if you know a reliable source wich refers to this please attach a link.
but for space wolves blood claws it says up to 1 in every 5 models can have PF's and they cane have 2 in 8 BC'sOriginally Posted by Lost Nemesis
or am i wrong?
Those are Space Wolves, not Eldar.
but what is the difference in 1 in three, and 1 in every three?Originally Posted by SlickWilley
If it states that they may have one in every X number, then they can only have one in every X number, whether that X be three or five. So, make sure to doublecheck the wording in the Space Wolf entry if you're uncertain; however, you still need six Jetbikes to have two with Shuriken Cannons.Originally Posted by Seif
alrite... thanks alot... now i'm gonna check the BC's out. and then perhaps go tear of an Power fist and convert a CCW =(Originally Posted by Lost Nemesis
i got the answer... in the BC case its rounding fractions up... so it can have it :sleep:
There's probably no difference implied between "one in x", "one in every x", "for every x", etc. Whatever wording is used, you must have full sets. "One in three" or "one in every three" both mean that for each set of three, you may have one. . . something.
The difference in the Space Wolf codex is that the text instucts one to round up. "One in every five" means that in a squad of eight models, you have 1.6 sets. Rounded up, that's two sets, so two of the relevant weapon upgrades may be taken.
EDIT: Hmm. . . standard situation. I take my bloody time replying and the answer appears by itself.
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.
