don't all necron weapons have rending?
somebody i know is trying to tell me they don't, but i think they do can someone please help us clear this up
No, your mistaking the gauss weapon rule. It's covered in the necron codex- basically a 6 always wounds (save as normal) or always glances on vehicles.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Yes, Paint Monkey is right. The Flay thing is a far cry from true rending. Still good though.

isnt a 6 to auto wound considered rending?
A 6 on Rending is an automatic wound that ignore armour save, a 6 with a gauss weapon causes an automatic wound that allows armour saves
To clear up all possible doubt:
Rending is when, on a roll TO HIT, you roll a 6, when it causes a wound with no armour save allowed. Against vehicles, this means that you may add another D6 to your penetration roll.
Gauss is when, on a roll TO WOUND, you roll a 6. Irrespective of Str/T differences, you cause a wound, ALLOWING Armour Saves and Invulnerable Saves. This means that Flayers can wound T8 models. That is the only advantage, before you get to bio-titans and crazy things like that.
Alternatively, on a roll TO PENETRATE, a roll of a 6 will mean that you get a glancing hit, unless you would otherwise get a penetrating hit. If it would not be a penetrating hit because of Str/Armour, it will always be a glancing hit. You roll on the glancing hit damage table as normal.
The definitive definition of Gauss. This thread, and all others like it, end here.
