Tzeentch Chariot

Post  Aegwymourn on Mon Mar 04, 2013 9:35 pm

It would appear there is some internet hubbub that the chariot with a flamer cannot fire his templates if it moves since they are heavy weapons and he does not have the relentless rule (since he counts as a passenger). Anyone with the codex confirm?

He can't, rules as written. It's heavy, and he's a passenger. I imagine they'll FAQ it, being it moves and fires in the battle report.

It's not horrible if they don't. Being that it's Tzeentchy, if you turbo boost it on from reserves, you can get. 4++ Save, re-rolling 1's, then sit and shoot.

But if you are that close chances are you going to get assaulted =( unless its Tau. Then its "Run Away!" *cue Monty Python music*

Threat range on a Torrent Flamer is 18" or so (12" plus the big part of the flamer starts at about 6").

It would get Wall of Death with its S5 AP3 flamer, at least. I'm confident they'll FAQ it so the rider is relentless or the weapons are assault.

Another small plus, is the Chariot is a Daemon of Tzeentch too, so it still gets its 5++ re-roll 1's (40% chance) save.
