Anybody reading between the lines to that extent should be melted down into pure energy and used to power whinge-forums like the dakka dakka rules as written(RAW) board.

If one were to agree with that argument then one could argue anything that's not in the rules and make it stick. Honestly this is the single worst attempt to bend the rules I've ever seen. Next time he says that respond with "Well, no where in the rules does it state that I can't punch you in the face three times and win by default."

That's on page six of "How to be a Giant Douche," for the playing of any game whatsoever. :o

Hmm. I thought that was Page 1 of..
"The Art of Destroying Fanboys and You."

If the person I played pulled that, they better realize I'm using it as I see it or cease playing me. If they won't stop and keep whining, then maybe I'll go to page 3, as stated above. They always say you can't win a battle of wits unarmed, but a one-sided battle of you smoting the other player out of game is pretty efficient. I know more than one of us have resorted to giving a beardy friend a crack or two out of spite for their obvious cheating or attempt to bend the rules to crazy shapes and sizes.

That's awesome. I've gotta save this as a sigline or something.

Saying its not str. six is like saying a weapon has only 2d6 penetration, but no strength O_O.

I say he just didn't like to die... that fast.

After seeing the new DA codex It would seem that GW may look to Increase points cost on the ass-cannon:
1) Tornado's now cost 20pts more than the Std SM codex
2) Termies don't have the option to take twin ass-cannons
Could be the sign of things to come If the Infamous Codex SM 'Redux' makes an appearance?

YIPEEE

Must admit that i think there are good reasons for those changes. IF anything the DA should get the tornado cheaper as it started off as a DA only configeration. If tornados were 100pts then the good old multimelta Hvy flamer combo would likely see some more table time. With Rhino's made cheaper and drop pods more expensive i think it would be great for balancing the list out more. Plus a pts shake up for the Libby powers

Well first of all i want to say that i agree! The ass cannon is strength 6 when it renders! ( just so i don't get my head bitten off for the next bit)

Lets look at it the other way around, The Elder player could be forgiven for thinking that the rendering part has no strength against infantry because a daemonette is strength 4 and so cannot hurt a wraithlord unless it hits on the roll of a 6!

Ergo! If it was still strength 4, even rolling a 6 to hit would mean that it cannot hurt a wraithlords toughness of 8!

However saying that, IMO both things are correct! Meaning it wounds at its normal strength even if its normal strength is not enough to normally hurt the target!

Perhaps this is where the confusion was.
