Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey there all,
Been a while since I last posted.
I am confused about spore mines and blast markers and the codex doesn't do much to alleviate it. I'm basing this on my first experience with the game which was through the "Battle for Macragge" set. In the Macragge rules it states that frag and toxin mines use the large blast template and that acid mines use the teardrop template.
In the codex it just says "Blast Marker" in a single location when it describes how to resolve detonation. It doesn't say 'Large' or 'Small' nor 'Teardrop' for the acid mines. I noticed in the tyranid unit tactica on this site it says 'Small blast marker'. Which is correct?
Any help clarifying this would be greatly appreciated.
First of all, the codex always over rules any instruction given by other publications. Even the 40k rule book can be overruled by the codex, so always use its rules.
Secondly, if the description says 'template' Use the teardrop marker. If it says 'blast' its the small circle, if it says 'large blast' its the large circle. Hope that helped.
The Battle for Macrage was made before the new codex. Those were the rules for the 3rd edition rules for spore mines. The new ones are the ones stated in the codex.
