Default Im really sorry about this ,but....

Ive checked this forum up and down and i can't find anything to answer my question but I'm sure it must have been answered at some point so here it goes. What happends when only one of the members in a heavyweapon team gets killed? I'm having trouble working out shooting against heavyweapons, so id much appreciate if you guys could clear it up for me.

Erm, far as I know you just treat it as though you lost a wound and the weapon keeps on going till two wounds are inflicted. All wounds go against one weapon first then the next and so on. Hmm, now I'm going to be puzzling that one all day.

When one man dies, one man dies. Heavy Weapon Teams have one Heavy Weapon Trooper, and one Loader (Guardsman with Lasgun).

This heavy weapon teams used to have a bigger diffrence back in second edition when you could detach the weaponteam from the squad. Now it's mostly because the minature looks that way.

So you can still shoot if there's only one guy left manning the heavyweapon.

Yes you can still fire as normal as long as the heavy weapon team has at least 1 wound remaining.

GW really needs to update this... basically, every Heavy Weapon troops must have one normal Guardsman accompanying him.

The other man is just a bodie to take the bullets that comes flying towards them.
In a heavy weapon sqaud three men must die before the heavy weapons are removed.

Three men? you mean two...

This is why a heavy weapons trooper should be used as a stand alone model, then you can keep swapping the loaders around as they die! thats what i do...
