Lash question....
Its one thats been bugging me for a while.

Can you lash a unit and assult a different one? I ask this because it is not a psychic shooting attack( i dont think it is anyway) and it only specifically says shooting attacks?

IF it doesn't say it's a shooting attack, and it doesn't cause wounds ( which it doesn't ) it's not. So I would say yes.

EDIT: WoW, I didn't get Ninjaed this time!

Any 1 else wish to comment?? could do with a bit of backing as it comes up regually in our games. cheers

Einar is right.
That's it, basically.

Let's consult the incredibly expansive and well phrased Psyker section in my BRB...

Next the Chaos 'dex...

Yep, you can do that!

Even better, if doesn't require LoS, you can even lash from inside a landraider. Since you don't need a firing point for it. ( if it does need LoS, it does need a firing port and 'fills it up' as if it was a shooting attack, though you're still free to assault something else if you're in an open topped vehicle. )

Yeah, thats a sweet option... slight downside is that you're in a chaos LR though.
I love casting SW's stormcaller from inside LRCs- doing so vastly increases the range that your power can reach (being in a LR can give you an extra 6" to the range of your psychic power if the vehicle is pointing in the right direction).

If the chaos FAQ/dex doesnt specifically say that it is a psychic shooting attack (and since you cant wound or save with cover it doesnt look like one) then you can assault what you want... only shooting a unit nominates it as your only assault option.
