Little rules I learnt

Post  System Commander on Thu Jul 12, 2012 10:16 pm

g Played my first game the other night and afterwards had time to reflect and look up all mistakes.

The first one of course was overwatch. I was playing against a primarily foot imperial guard army. He got his overwatch shots off.. But did not rapid fire.. I found out today you can, well i guess i mean the rulebook doesnt you cant.. Logic says you can. As well.. He had one unit with two flamers and until i read the bols article today i never knew the wall of death rule existed. I had only seen the template weapons cant snap shot rule.

It wouldnt have made a difference at all.. But needs to be known.

I also read today that you can only hammer of wrath with the models that make into actual base to base. .. And as well only if you use your jump packs to assault.. And not use them in the movement phase.. You can only use them once per turn. Missed that the first time aroumd.

The rhinos worked fine i thought and dont see them being to big of a liability. I moved first turn.. Smoked. Secind turn i moved and got out.. Hiding behind it with berserkers. I didnt realize they could move 6" in the shooting phase now.. Thatll really help blocking some shooting.

Im a skeptical about assaults going well as the edition rolls on though.. As overwatch defense ramps up i think it kight be really risky.

here is a way to limit overwatch if your using berserkers or any other melee unit in a transport:
the turn after you disembark use the transport to block most of the squad your charging. overwatch still follows the shooting rules for los so if only 1 marine can see the assaulters only he can overwatch.

Rapid Fire is a weapon type, not a method of shooting.

Any time a model shoots with a Rapid Fire weapon, it is "rapid firing," or, more correctly, it never is, but simply shooting. Shooting once at max range or twice at half or less.

still unless its changed i cant switch my las gun from auto to semi-auto i can only shoot las guns fully automatic unless its changed. And in 5th after i took a shoot with a rapidfire wepon in the shooting phase i cant assalte in the same turn. Overwatch over rules that i belive.

overwatch does not over rule rapid firing dom.

if you shoot a gun that has the weapon type, Rapid Fire, then you cannot start an assault.

overwatch kicks in when someone 'else' assaults 'you'.

two different rules that kick in at entirely different times on opposite situations.
