Default BS6+

If a model's BS is 6 or above, and it misses but has the opportunity to re-roll, can it?

I ask this because in the rulebook, it says you cannot re-roll a re-roll. (Which is fair enough)
But, does this include the re-roll you get for having a high BS?

Surely this would be madness on GW's part if you weren't allowed to re-roll then?

I will furnish you with an example:

Autarch with Dark Reapers.
Autarch is BS6.

Farseer uses Guide on A+DR, Autarch rolls 1 to hit, then a 2 (re-roll for having BS6), then would he get to re-roll again, then re-roll that if he misses due to re-rolling BS6?

I'm slightly confused by this, sorry if I've confused you in the process.

Well, you only ever get one re-roll. You have a re-roll for BS6 and a re-roll for being guided. You would have to choose which re-roll to apply, obviously guide being the better.

You can only ever re-roll once. It's like having multiple saves... You pick the best. In your example, the Autarch could chose to use the re-roll from Guide or from high ballistics. Obviously, the guide is much better (same to-hit number), but it would be your choice between the two...
