Default couple questions

i feel stupid asking these questions but that is the reason i joined this forum to get answers

1. Do you have to use the force organization charts?

2. Can walkers move then shoot a heavy weapon then assault a squad?

the reason I'm asking theses are because i do not feel like reading my rule book.

so someone answer.

for the shore of sweet Barbados,
where the sugar grain grows tall
and the god we once believed in,
the butcher and his crown
raped the land we used to sleep in,
and tomorrow chimes the ghostly crimes
that haunt tobacco island."

Probably not the best thing to be saying - it makes you look lazy and people will be less inclined to help you.

Anyway, the answers are 'yes' to both.
We tend to scoff at the beliefs of the ancients. But we can't scoff at them personally, to their faces, and this is what annoys me.

If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

Actually, as to the force organisation chart- not neccessarily. Space Wolves, for example, can have more HQ choices in large armies than the standard chart allows. Other armies allow discrepancies as well, IIRC.

And of course, if you are playing a friendly, you and your opponent could decide to use, I don't know, 10 troops choices and nothing else, if you wanted something a bit different....

And as for the second question- can walkers even assault? ....wait....of course they can....

I just can't find it in the rulebook anywhere- it says they act as infantry in an assault, but nothing about actually assaulting.....

Anyway....I expect so...they don't count as heavy weapons on vehicles anyway, I don't think...

The rules for Walkers firing and moving are on page 63, look at the chart. If they can move, they can also charge. This last part is implies, but not actulally stated. Another bit that GW needed to read more carefully.

Hope this clears a bit up.

Do it for KJ
