Default Flechette against WS vehicles.

This came up yesterday, the flecthlette discharger states....

"Any model attacking the Vehicle in close combat will be wounded on a D6 roll of 4+."

Now, Defilers, dreadnoughts etc don't have wound/armour saves but can engage in CC.

The only other reference to a cross over between wounds/Walker-esque is the no retreat rule where infantry take wounds and Walkers instead take a glancing hit.

So....Will the fletchlette auto-glance on a 4+?

4+ would be far too powerful...and I don't think that fletchettes would damage even the lightest walker (like a Sentinel).

I'd play that, WS value or not, they have no effect on vehicles at all.

About the same chance of damaging as say my kroot against a walker (which according to the No retreat rule means they could theoretcially).

Dischargers are after all "Vicious high velocity, powerful clusters of reactive charges".

Well, No Retreat shows the horde swarming over a vehicle and bashing cords, cutting power, flipping hatches, wounding a crewman etc but I'd play that since it doesn't say it hurts a vehicle, that you can't claim it does. 'Any model' usually means 'any infantry model' in most cases, unless it specifically talks about damage to vehicles with a WS value.

It would do no damage, in the same way that a dreadnaught sitting next to an exploding vehicle takes no damage.

Yeah but only with glancing hits, S4 plus a role of 6 = glancing.

yes but a full squad of 20 with a full mutt add on is a lot of chances to get that 6+ to glance.

Well, spirit of the rules-wise, how exactly are darts going to hurt a vehicle? Even explosive darts?

Letter of the rules-wise, a vehicle can't be wounded and our rules specifically use the word "wound" and make no allowances for vehicle effects. It's generally a bad idea to assume you can do something that is not in print anywhere.
