That pseudocode is a bit off, you define specific cases with IFs and non-specific with ELSE.

So:

IF (all attacks hit) THEN (2 magma hits)
ELSE IF (no attacks hit) THEN (no magma hits)
ELSE (1 magma hit)

In the example you gave above, if it hit with all attacks it would only get 1 magma hit, as it would fulfill the requirements for (at least 1) and then end.

Lol, yeah. I was an IT guy in college, rather than the programming side of my CS major. This was just me trying to make things easier.

No worries, I'm a writer myself, I studied a couple of years back. Fun, but limited.

Yes the Maulerfiend is a beast. Remember though it has 2 Power Fists, so it actually has 3A base, plus one in a charge... and with a move of 12", and that it ignores terrain completely (much better than Move Through Cover)... and has fleet, you are likely to get the charge off. Also remember that, even though it is a Power Fist, being a dreadnought lets it hit at I3 still. Also those Magma Cutters are AP1 and armor bane, so they are quite deadly to vehicles.

My 1500 point army now has 3 Maulerfiends, 2 Helbrutes, and a Warp Smith. :P
I made the move to professionally painting 3 years ago. I paint a good mix between speed and quality. This keeps prices low, like a typical 2K 40k army is under $500.

Can a defiler still only shoot its main gun in a phase?

It could always do that, due its status as a walker, but now it can only fire them as snap shots.

Not really. Snaps shots are terrible. Load this guy up with three power fists and a power scourge and throw him across the table.

That was what I was thinking. Does it come with 3 fists?

Having 2 Power Fists gives you +1 attacks.

And you add one more power fist and a power scourge, giving him +3 attacks and really awesome at high fives.
