Hi,

I've just started 40k after having played fantasy (Ogre Kingdoms) for almost a decade and my friend gave me his Chaos Space Marine army that he doesn't use anymore. I played 1 game against Eldar, but I have some questions about little things for ya'll to answer.

1. What is the purpose of giving marines a hand weapon for 2 pts or trading it out? Can they not attack in close combat without it or does it grant a buff?

2. What is blind? (Ive been reading my book and i have no idea what that is)

3. What are the rules for a rhino if it moves and wants to shoot its weapons?

4. If a crew embarks/disembark on a transport, can it move the turn it picked them up or drops them off?

Thanks to any who reply. I hope to be around here to learn lots about the Sci-Fi Psycopaths.

A Close Combat weapon and a Pistol/another CCW grant an extra attack in close combat. You can still attack in close combat without the upgrade/trade out.
2. What is blind? (Ive been reading my book and i have no idea what that is)
The rules for blind are in the Warhammer 40k Main Rulebook.
3. What are the rules for a rhino if it moves and wants to shoot its weapons?
Also covered in the Main Rulebook. The amount/types of weapons that can shoot depends on the vehicle's type (Heavy, Tank, Fast, etc.).
4. If a crew embarks/disembark on a transport, can it move the turn it picked them up or drops them off?
Only if the transport did not move earlier that turn.
Thanks to any who reply. I hope to be around here to learn lots about the Sci-Fi Psycopaths.
There is a new edition of the rules coming out in less than 2 weeks so some of these rules may change.
