weapon is within the firerís line of sight.
So lets say your firing your missle launcher frag shot into model a. Model a is in line of sight but the blast also hits model b which is out of line of sight. Thus both model a and model b are hit.

The new Dark Eldar changes are good. Before, I was hesitant to keep on buying more of them (I only have a very small force), but if my Incubi are still a solution to 2+ armor saves, I feel a bit more comfortable.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

Daemon weapons are now AP2 like they should have been. To bad it really doesn't matter because the new book is 1 month off. Oh and DP's are now flying monstrous creatures.

Yes! CSM Daemon Princes now join their Chaos Daemon cousins as Flying Monstrous Creatures (for much, much cheaper)!

I can't use Lash from within a transport anymore, since it's not a witchfire power, I do believe. Ah well, I never took Lash Sorcs when a Lash Prince would do anyways.

What's this crap about not being able to assault with a from a transport destroyed during the enemy turn? And the shaken/stunned applying to a disembarking unit? Well, Rhinos just got thaaaaat much crappier.

Nice to see that Smash is "half base attacks (rounding up) + charge modifiers and similar."

Does this mean I can use the Necron Death Ray to put the marker on 1 model I can see then draw the line through models and units I have no line of sight to and still kill them?

What's the exact wording of the rules for it?

90% of people think they are above average.

The Death Ray isnt a blast.


It seems like they answered most questions but they hardly touched chariots. I remember there being quite a few questions regarding chariots and close combat.

Skyfire: Great news for my Flyrant (who was already pretty good...), but I had to look about 3 times to spot the FAQ question that added that - surely that should be in the Errata section for page 49, since it's not currently in the FMCs section at all?

Now all we need is an option for Harpies to take devourers or something instead of blast weapons, and we'll be sorted for anti-flyer goodness...

Good to see a things that clear up some of the cheesy stuff that's come up so far (Look out sir going to the closest model rather than any within 6" is good news, no more units of characters for the most part). Still no definite answer to what BS Tau Seeker Missiles use to shoot at Flyers, though.

a straight line between the two points. Every unit (fnendly or
enemy) underneath the line suffers a number of hits equal to
the number of models in the unit underneath the line. If the
vehicle's other weaponry is fired in the same shooting phase,
it must be fired at one of the units hit by the death ray.

From what I understand you can use this weapon to shoot into assaults and/or kill your own models with it.

What happens if I destroy 1 single model, say a lone Warrior or something. Could that potentially grant me First Blood?
