Default Le Vespidos

No im not spanish or w/e just tryin to make a fancy title lol
on to real question..........

so with the vespids
I no that vespids can move a foot in movement phase
choose fleet in shooty phase
but can they move 6" in the assault phase? I could of sworn I read that somewhere and I did a quick search of the boards and didn't look all that hard.

O and to add in as well, who likes using vespids?
I sure as hell do, man I have good luck with them, i drop necrons and SMurfs like nothing.

Nope, only troops equipped with a jet pack can do that. Since they are classified as jump infantry, they can only move 12"+optional D6". A pity, though, for the Vespids could greatly benefit from JSJ.

Vespids can't move 12" in the movement phase?! I thought they had 12" base movemnet plus fleet!

Vespid move like jump infantry (not jet pack) . So you may move between 1 to 12 inches in the movement phase .

Then in the shooting phase you may fleet of wing 1d6 in place of shooting.

Finally you may assualt 6 inches in the assualt phase in-order to begin a close combat .

Hope this helps out

They are jump infantry normal. They are not Jump infantry(jet pack) like the rest of the Tau's jump infantry.

So that means that they move 12" in one direction. However, they may opt to fleet( D6) and change direction. And if you are lucky, you may assault 6".
That brings the vespid's potantial movement aroun 19" - 24".

so they can have a use when fighting GEQ you're looking at 12+d6+6 charge range !

that's as good as gene stealers, but you practically IGNORE all difficult terrain

I guess not, since that is either the French singular masculine article or the Italian plural feminine article plus a Hispanicisation of "vespid". :P

You could say los vespidos or les véspides, though.

Yes, this is exactly where vespid have value against GEQ. Not enough of a reason to take them specifically against GEQ, but if you are running an all comers list athis would validate the Vespid as a useful all around choice.
