This is inaccurate: a rending hit in assault works against ANY model that has WOUNDS. there are several models that have wounds that are not classified as infantry. Bikes, jetbikes, any monstrous creature, etc.

Rending against vehicles works like this: Roll to hit (if necessary), roll all hits. Any 6's are Rending hits. Now you have that 6 plus your strength value. For example we'll say this gives you 10. Then you roll another D6 and add the value to your previous total. So let's say you roll a 4. That 4 gets added to the 10, giving you 14. That is your armour penetration roll against vehicles. Then you roll to damage as normal on the corresponding table.
at first I thought this was incorrect, but now (after reading it 3 times) I see it's just confusing.
for clarity's sake (against vehicles)
1. Roll to hit vehicles if necessary
2. Roll armor penetration on 1 die per hit.
2a. if you roll less than 6, add this to your strength and that is your armor penetration roll
2b. if you roll 6, then add the 6 to your strength and add another d6 of strength to the armor penetration roll.

Also, bio-plasma, as stated by striogi, doesn't benefit from the Monstrous Creature or Rending rule. But would it benefit from the Implant Attack rule I wonder? ???
No, it doesn't. If it doesn't benefit from MC or Rending rules, what makes you think a bio-electric spit-wad would benefit from extra poison in the creature's stingers?
