Been lurking a lot lately as I've been trying to get back into 40k, mossytoes and a few others posts and guides have been extreamly helpful, but I've come up with an unknown that I can't figure out in the rulebook.

It's regarding some of the posts I've been reading about jugger lords in a bike pack and being able to focus fire the lord? Also I've seen reference to being able to focus out an icon bearer from a squad. Where does it say this can happen, the only things I can find mention are regarding focusing on people outside of cover etc.

Thanks!

I think you might be thinking of Precision Shots. Focus Fire only deals with targeting only the models in a unit that are out of/in less cover. That help at all?

thank you, yes percision shots is what I was looking for, makes sense now. So it only applies to sniper models and character models on a roll of 6. And since it says Charaters and not IC I assume this applies to squad champions/sergents etc?

The other side of this that I think I misunderstood, it that for the Juggernaut and biker combo if the bikes move they get a coversave, where as the juggerlord doesn't so then he could be focus fired?

Yes this is the scenario that is being mentioned in the Juggerlord case. Cavalry doesn't get the Jink save for movement that the bikes do, so theoretically using the Focus Fire rule you could only target models with (X) cover save or worse, in this unit's case the only model that would satisfy that requirement would be the Juggerlord if the value you selected for (X) was higher than the Jink save the bikes get.
