The problem with this wording is that is SEEMS to relate the two groups yet does not in any way actually combine them. It is definitely a problem area that needs addressing.Some rare units always count as stationary when firing rapid fire weapons and some units can move and fire heavy weapons. Such units can charge after firing
Yeah, totally agreed.The Son of Horus said:To me, it sounds like if you can fire a heavy weapon on the move, you'd be able to fire a rapid-fire weapon on the move as well.
It does not say "...charge after firing heavy weapons" so, if you adhere to purely what is written they can fire then charge any weapon; whether or not that was intended to be the case, adding a condition that is not written is not strictly RAW.It says that "...some units can move and fire heavy weapons. Such units can charge after firing." To me, it sounds like if you can fire a heavy weapon on the move, you'd be able to fire a rapid-fire weapon on the move as well. It says "such units..." so it seems to me like they just have to meet either requirement.
Some people are stricter or laxer on rules purely depending on whether they feel animus toward their opponent: if they face a fluffy army they are tolerant of everything including rewinding time to do something you forgot; if they face an optimised fluff-ignoring list then they will challenge every possible advantage.The only people who are rules nazis are people who can't paint and are insecure about not only losing, but losing to someone who actually is good at the hobby.
That's my experience, at any rate.
