Default piranha & drones sink tanks & squad?

Quote:
First, surround an enemy transport in such a way that there is no legal place for transported models to disembark. Second, use the Fusion Blasters on your piranhas (or railguns, missile pods, whatever…) to blow up the enemy transport. Since the units inside have no legal place within 2” of the exit points to disembark to, they are destroyed.
My friend doesn't believe this can happen, and insists that the troops inside would merely 'push' past or into contact and then an assault would start. I'm at the end of a term paper and don't feel like re-reading my entire rulebook. If anyone could perhaps even tell me what page to search, I could do that. I've the tiny Battle for Maccarage rule book.

Only part of the base has to be within 2" of any exit point, keep in mind. That said, whatever models cannot adhere to this when disembarking are destroyed. Always.

I believe it's in vehicle rules, and it may not be in the macragge rulebook, but it's a general warhammer theme. Cant fit all the models on the DS template? Oooh, that sucks.

That.
Is.
Awesome.

It's be a crying shame if 70 points of piranha took out 350+ points of land-raider AND their terminators...

Two Piranha and their drones (3 Units for 3 Access Points ).
I think someone dubbed it the 'Feeding Frenzy' a while back.

Yes it does. See the copyright notices inside the rulebook itself, just on the contents page. And pages like the Blast/Flame templates page (265) - technically you need their permission to copy anything in their book.

If you are unsure in the future, contact a moderator first and check with them before posting.

And we have our rules here as well:

Just so you know - the main/big rulebook and the Battle for Macragge rulebook have the same page numbering for the core rules - so you'll find those rules on page 62 under Disembarking. ([size=smaller]Aside: <-- that is the correct way to reference rules here. If you are referring to a specific part of the rule, you can quote part of/a sentence to pinpoint what you're talking about. Otherwise copying whole sections of rules is generally not allowed.[/size])
