Default IG Bionics

In the smurfs book they changed how bionics work. Basically making it an ignore injury roll. My question is do our bionics work like the new rules or as the old rules list?

bionics doesn't negate insta death or power weapons. The wording in our book says "after last wound, lay on side, next turn roll d6, if you get a 6 you are back up with 1 wound".

Smurfs states :every failed armor save roll d6, on a 6 you ignore the wound.

Smurfs have it much better IMO

Remember, Marines can take much more of a pounding than Guard... and have access to better Bionics. The stuff used by the IG will not be the best quality tech.

Strakens unique bionics ignore insta-kill, not normal IG ones.

thats because in most cases 'bionics' usually means part of an arm, or the whole arm maybe. shraken on the other hand is mostly bionics, and they are interlaced through his chest and shoulder, this fuses flesh and bionics so that theres no real plac where the metal ends and the flesh starts.

Straken is also a special case... presumably, his bionics are somewhat better than the norm.
