Default Vehicle Wreckage

Greetings.

This came up in a game the other day, but I cannot find the rule that my opponent mentioned in the rulebook.

An individual claimed that a vehicle cannot pass through a 'Wrecked' Vehicle (not exploded) unless it has a higher armor value than the wrecked vehicle.

Is this legit?

That is a load of bull-crap. There is no such rule so I suggest you stick up a piece of wrecked vehicle terrain up his ass along with the Rulebook. And what I really mean is that when such a situation comes out I suggest you or opponent have the Rulebook at hand and if you need to call him out, do it and refer to the Rulebook.

I mostly just wanted to keep the game going, so I didn't object, though the rule did significantly alter my tactics (since I have 12 Chimeras and 2 Hellhounds on the table), but thanks for the clarification. I'll make sure to bring it up next time I see him.

Take heed that vehicle wrecks are both difficult and dangerous terrain.

I dunno if that helps any, but it can't hurt to know.

Old rules actually, the old rules allowed vehicles to push other vehicles based off their armor values. New rules it's simply a dangerous terrain check, pass, pass through, fail, get immobilized in front of.

To put more simply IMO, if you can put the model there without help, it can go there (that is in the book).

??? How old are you talking about? This had to be pre-3rd Edition then because that's when I played and I don't recall anything like that in there.

My memory on it is vague, it might even just be a white dwarf rule. But the confusion could be due to this none the less. Especially if his local store recognized it as an official rule for their tournaments and such. It would have been 3rd edition or later as I started after that.
