Default New LOS rules

Looks like we can't screen the broadsides anymore

Only Vehicles and Terrain block LoS now.

Good. Screening was a very Unfluffy trick.

Happy to see this chanega s well as the ones causing rpoblesm for Warithlords, fearless

units, etc...

Yes, over all the changes are

particularly good for Tau. I would trade the broadside screening for the end of the Rhino

rush anyday.

Some questions for thought:

Do the new Jump/Jet rules

apply to Crisis/Stealth Suits and Drones?
(I would assume so, but in the Tau codex

it says 6" in movement phase and 6" in assualt phase which was different than

the regular Jump rules)

For Hammerheads, does the targeting array make it so

you use the new rules for fast vehicles? If so then the Smart Missile system just became

a wickedly viable option. (They are S6 or less aren't they? Don't have the

codex at work with me).

Probably not, but

it's a glaring great problem... for now, say Codex overrules ATM unofficial

supplement

Its always been said that codex overrules rulebook, but, since this

A) is new and B) isn't really a rulebook, i spot a possible mistook...

>EDIT: E-Mailling that one to GW just now, along with a few other qeuires. just

referrign to here and EO as &#39;forums&#39; .

Did they make it like BFG - take a leadership

test to shoot at units besides the closest? If so, that sounds fine.

I&#39;ve argued the point above (posted by

Niero above) in another thread. Thanks for the confirmation mate!
