Page 67, second paragraph of "Destroyed - Explodes!"
Note: remember that all models in a single unit fire simultaneously, so a squad cannot take out a transport with its lascannon then mow down the occupants with their bolters. However, if a transport is destroyed (either result) by a ranged attack, the unit that shot it may assault the now disembarked passengers, if it allowed to assault according to the assault rules.I highlighted the part that made me go *blink*, *blink*. Assault units with anti-tank weapons... how did I miss this? How has it not happened to me in the last year and a half?
I sent that paragraph with a "how did I miss that?" to my evil twin and he responded with:
"Same way I missed pg62 "wrecks" count as both difficult AND dangerous terrain. Makes transports slightly more dangerous to use.
"oh look I blew up your rhino. Now make a difficult terrain test for everyone that lived.""
I flipped to the page - well, damn. Right. What else am I missing? What other rules changed between 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th editions are rolling around in the empty space between my ears? Time to sit down in a quiet place and re-crack open the book. Something I think really should be done about once a year anyway.
Which brings me to my point. So often, gamers have a minor (or major in some people's case) of Gamer ADD. Now for some people it's the gamer magpie (aka - "ohhh shiney") effect that results in people starting new armies when the next codex comes out "because it's the end all, be all, for this game! It will totally dominate this game!" ... and then sell the army off in 3 months time because they are in fact living with a case of INMABS (I Need My Ass Beat Syndrome) because they only read the good parts of the codex/rulebook/army list/whatever. (BTW, for the record - 3 to 4 months after a Codex comes out is a good time to get reasonably cheap, used armies from eBay...)
Sitting down and re-reading my Ork codex a in August is what got me to look at Boss Zagstruk. I'm now in the process of acquiring new Ork Stormboyz to bring a full mob in for my larger games.
So, my fall reading plan is to re-read my 5th Edition rulebook, and all my codexes (codecies?). All of them, not just the ones I currently have armies using. May I suggest you do the same?
