The hit and run rule has been relatively unchanged since 4th edition. I remember because my brother's whitescars bikers used to charge in, do some damage, then wait till the end of the enemy assault phase and get out. This would give him a 3d6 plus 12 inch move and an assault if he was so inclined.

Firewarriors are pretty decent now - very effective at stripping hull points from rhinos at 30" and then bringing S5 rapidfire to bear on the disembarked troops.

And just you wait - in the new chaos book noise marines will be the new black.

I'll believe it when I see it.

Except the old Seraphim H&R used to be an auto success with no Initiative test needed. The good ol days...

Apart from Seraphim, which units actually have Hit and Run? Also if you are leaving combat shooting then re-charging then you are going to take a bit of damage from overwatch too, in most cases not much but still.

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow

Think harlequins and Shining Spears get it. (from eldar anyway)

Spears have got lances which need to charge to be effective, and it means the harlies can keep using furious charge to get str4 hits. There'll be some overwatch, but hopefully not too much.

Tau Crisis suits can get it through a piece of wargear....although you can only take that piece of wargear once per FOC....
