Default Force Weapons

I've bought a librarian in terminator armour and I read up in the rule book what it is supposed to do but I still don't understand what it does. Can someone please help?

Thanks

What what does? The force weapon? Its basically a weapon, that, should you hurt them, you can test to see if you can instant kill them.

Have you got the codex/rule book?

It might seem confusing in the rulebook, but I'm sure you will get it if you read it a couple of times.

Explain to us on what you are confused about, maybe we can clarify it for you.

It says as long as one wound has been inflicted, make a psychic test for the psyker against any one opponent wounded by the weapon. The normal rules for psychic powers apply and you may not use a psychic power in the same turn.


When it says make a psychic test does it mean you have to pass or fail it?
And when it says you may not use a psychic power in the same turn does that mean that you can't use a power in the shotting phase before you assault or the turn after the assault phase?

Righto,

As far as my knowledge goes, you'll have to Pass the Psychic Test. Maybe some else can clarify this.

If you assaulted an enemy with the sword in the assault phase then you cannot use a psychic power till the next turn. But, you can use a psychic power in the Shooting Phase beforehand.

Has this helped?

Yes thanks, so you can use a psychic power in the shooting phase and then use the force weapon in the assault phase. Right ok feel free to lock this.

No, using the Force Weapon counts as a psychic power. You can only use one psychic power per player turn. That means that if you use a shooting power then you can't use the force weapon, but if assault or are assaulted then you can use the force weapons ability on your opponent's turn. There are wargear items for some races that let you use more than one power per turn, though.

No, unless you have an ability to use more than one psychic power a turn, you may only do one or the other.

So if you use one in the shooting phase, you cannot use the instagib ability in the assault phase.

You have to pass your psychic test to fry them.

This only applies per player turn, IIRC, so in the enemy turn, as long as you havn't used a power (not sure of any that you can) you can try and instagib in his turn.

Also keep in mind that the forse weapon does not cause insta-death. So models immune to insta-death can be killed out right with a force weapon.

This is helpful when fighting Nids.
