Ork Burna Boys: They count as having power weapons in close combat if they didn't fire their burna's that turn. Which "type" of power weapon do they count as for AP purposes. My guess is power lance, based on the length of the weapon, but I checked the GW FAQ and found no answer.

I ran into an interesting problem during a Ork vs Sister of Battle game. My Warboss and troop of Nobz feel short on the charge and a fire line of Sisters with flamers set me a blaze. The question came up with the person moderating are match was unsure about the changes to the wound allocation with the flamer templates. My orks of course where in the worst possible position to be hit. Warboss up front with 10 Nobz+Painboy in a general bowling pin spreed.
The sisters where set up in a 5 across 2 deep fire line. After laying the templates out they all focused fire my Warboss
so that the 5 flamers could all hit him, and 2 - 4 each of those behind him.
So ya there where many, many, many wounds to be had. After determining the amount of wounds to those hit I began to make my saves the Moderater said that because the Warboss was the clossest to them, was hit by all of them, and that the wounds go front to back he had to soak as many wounds as possible untill he would be out of wounds. This did work out in my favor as I soaked the 20 wounds. Yay for Feel No Pain loves my Pain Boys. Would this be accurate, or is this a bad case of fuzzy logic?

Hey Dave, I think this is my first ever comment, so my question is...
If someone attempts to assult a unit with pinning weapons, such as tau firewarriors with pulse carbines, and the unit takes a wound, do they have to take the pinning test and possibly be forced to go to ground?

Infiltrators and Scouts:
Can an IC join a unit with the Infiltrate or Scouts rule and then Outflank?

Infiltrates last point:
An IC without the Infiltrate SR cannot join a unit of Infiltrators during deployment.

Does putting Inf and an IC in outflank reserves count as deployment? or does that count as reserves?

I read that as an IC cannot join Infiltrators who are infiltrating without the SR.

I see no restrictions for Scouts, you can both Scout Redeploy and Outflank with ICs that aren't scouts.

So why would one Outflanking rule be different from the other?
Esparoba3 (Over a year ago): - delete
vehicles that moved are WS1, does this means that kharn can hit them on a roll of 2? because FAQ says "against models with a WS value, kharn's close combat attacks always hit on a 2+"

Dave,

I have a question about how transports have been affected in 6th edition and specifically how we can use transports to get troops into combat.

If you don't move your transport, can you disembark, move, then assault an enemy? Or do you have to subject your unit to enemy fire no matter what?
Infinite-Freedom (Over a year ago): - delete
Hey Dave,
I have several questions.

Will we be seeing a reappearance of your Chaos in Battle Reports? Which of the Psychic branches seems to give the most benefit? How do you think Allies and Fortifications will change the game? Which Fortification do you think gives the most benefit?

Is it worth equipping my Guardsmen krak grenades in sixth edition?

Which army do you think has come off best with the new rules?
Vichyssoise (Over a year ago): - delete
@Skarbrand: Yes Nobz are characters... At the back of the rulebook there is a list of most units in the game, including 'I' and 'Ch' for Nobz. The 'Ch' stands for Character. This makes Nob and Nob Biker units really powerful now!! Unfortunately, Flash Gitz and still crap cos even tho they're nobz, they haven't given them the 'Ch' stat!!
Vichyssoise (Over a year ago): - delete
Wish I could answer most of these questions... But I guess that would take away the material for the next video!!!
I do have a question however... Do models that are embarked in an open topped vehicle (not a trukk), get a str3 hit, or a str4 hit when the vehicle explodes??
Vichyssoise (Over a year ago): - delete
@DarkPrinceRaven: Depends on what cover save the terrain gives you.... If the model in question has Stealth and Shrouding, I'd assume it can add +3 to its cover save.
DarkPrinceRaven (Over a year ago): - delete
Hey Dave, my question is, would the Deathleaper get a 2+ cover save in terrain and a 4 in open ground thanks to Shrouded and Stealth?
DarkPrinceRaven (Over a year ago): - delete
@warboss-enahs: The Smash USR confers AP2 to all Monstrous Creatures' CC attacks, regardless of whether or not they choose to make a "smash attack".
SilkGoddess (Over a year ago): - delete
I feel like I could get about 80% of the questions here, but I'll let Dave do all the hard work... The only thing I can't figure out so far is the AP of the weapons on death cult assassins. All I can find is that it says they have two power weapons that count as...............?
Skarbrand (Over a year ago): - delete
What is the AP on a daemon weapon? On the same token, what are the APs on Abaddon's daemon weapon and Typhus' scythe?

Are Nobz characters for purposes of challenges? Once again, the FAQ doesn't specify.

how does pinning work, i never got it even in 5th, also i was wondering what happened to slice and dice? (you don't have to answer the second one)
