Default i didnt no you could do this ?

is this true i was reading the new tactica about stealth's i never knew you could do this ?



A handy side benefit of the huge volume of shots this unit produces is their ability to take advantage of the Torrent of Fire rule. By wounding every member of the target squad you can nominate a wound on the LasCannoneer or the Power Fist wielding Vet Sarge depending on the circumstance. This ability is incredibly useful and a full squad of Stealths can take advantage of it almost every round they fire.

Oh yes. People forget that one all the time and when someone remembers it everyone ends up smacking their heads in frustration that they forgot it

Yes, I think it was an attempt by GW to get people to take more than just minimum size squads. After all, it's easier to pull it off agaisnt a 5 man squad than a 10 man squad. However it does seem to be one that get's forgotten all too often, probably due to the rarity of people actually trying for that.

It's a rule I keep in the back of my mind, but it doesn't come into play very often...

But with the Stealthsuits, and their high number of possible shots, you can certainly make a play for the Squad Leader or Heavy Weapons guy...

mostly because they're almost always reminded by that wound getting nominated on their heavy-weapon guy, commander, drone-controller, slaver, or whatever.

Where do I find the 'Torrent of Fire' rule? Is this a Tau thing?

Had to look it up myself. Page 26 of the rule book. Second column, third paragraph.

You mean to tell me that not only am I one of the few that knew about this rule, but that I'm also one of the few thats used it before?

If it wasn't for marines armor there is many a time when a lascannon would have been popped because of this.
