Default Can a psi-hood work if a psyker is embarked in a vehicle.

Can a psi-hood work if a psyker is embarked in a vehicle. Got into an argument about this. Basically I can't nullify the power if the psyker using his power is embarked in a vehicle.

Is it a shooting attack?

If yes: then it is nullify (40K rulebook FAQ)
If no: It works and range is mesured from the vehicule hull.

But if it require LOS it takes up one of the fire point. If no fire point and is LOS it can't work.

Then calculate the aura from the hull. As per the FAQ.

The old psychic hood isn't even an area-of-effect ability, so it works regardless. I believe that the area-of-effect for the new Psychic Hood should be measured from the hull.

I think y'all missunderstood what I was asking.

Inqusitor out of vehicle with psihood is out and about. Than a blood angel psyker pops his +5 cover save effect while embarked inside a vehicle. Whould hood cancel out the AOE effect or the psyker embarked in the vehicle becomes immune to psyhood effects.

If the hood is outside the vehicle and a psyker is attempting a power inside the vehicle you may attempt to cancel it as normal. Once the affect is in place no you cannot null it.

The same thing applies if the hood is in the vehicle and the psyker is not. Both on foot, or both in vehicles.

The hood is an affect that doesn't require LOS and isn't a shooting attack so it may always be used. If the hood is a new one with measurements and inside a vehicle you measure from the vehicles hull. The same rules apply to using a psychic power.

So to answer your question, yes you can.

Psychic hoods work both from a vehicle and on any psychic powers being used from within a vehicle. You just measure all relevant range to the hull of the vehicle in question.
