Templates from Rhinos

Post  Timbo on Fri Apr 29, 2011 4:25 pm

I was doing a little reading on the interwebs and I found an article that suggested flamers could not fire from Rhinos because you place them touching the hatch (the firepoint) and therefore the flamer template is touching a friendly model. Seemed a bit silly to me, but RAW I guess it makes sense. Open-topped vehicles wouldn't have this problem because templates are placed at the edge of anywhere on the vehicle's hull. Does anyone play it this way?

I can understand where the idea came from....... but it just smacks wrong. The flamer can't even glance the tank, it's not like there is even the potential for damage.

Solved. From the FAQ

"Q: If a model fires a template weapon out of a vehicle, will
the vehicle be hit if it is underneath the template? (p66)
A: No it will not be hit."

actually, didn't this come up too at some point on another thread?

"Q: During the first turn of the game does a scout move
count as the preceding Movement phase when working
out any saves from shooting, for example the 3+ cover
save from turbo-boosting, and the to hit rolls in combat
against vehicles? (p76)
A: Yes."
