Default Need help with XV8 rules query [question answered]

*deep breath*
okay, so in the new codex it says:

[deleted]

this means that they would count as 'Jet Packs' in the 40k rulebook it says that 'jet packs' are:

[also deleted]

So this means that they only 'move' 6" in the movement phase? Or do they still move 12" like jump infantry? If they only move 6 then how the hell are they ment to keep up with Devilfish/Vespid/Piranha's ect in a Tau Mech army? Also, does that mean that mean that Commanders/Stealth teams/Gun Drones all only move 6?

[yep also deleted]

I know it may sound stupid and all, but could somebody please clarify to me if this 6" movement means exactly 6" or UP to 6"?

It's up to a 6" move in the assault phase.

Up to. You never have to move your full distance.


Quoting entire rules probably isn't the wisest thing ever, so perhaps you should remove it from your post, especially since you already got your answer.

You answered your own question - battlesuits can move 6" in the assault phase, for a total of 12"... thus keeping up with Mechanized units or tanks.

Furthermore:
- You never have to move you're full distance.
- You should remove the rules quotation.
- Please lay off the unecessary profusion of smileys and arreviated noises?

A devilfish moves 12" in the movement phase. It can't move in the other phases. So that's 12" per turn at most.

A jet-pack equipped model moves 6" in the movement phase, and 6" in the assault phase. That's 6+6 = 12 -> 12" total movement per turn, at most. Same as the devilfish.

And you answered your own question above - yes jet-pack equipped models only move 6" in the movement phase, as per the rules you quoted (which might I add, have been removed - quoting rules is against our forum rules).
