Postby Weyco » Wed Aug 19, 2009 4:41 pm

hi there,

1.
In the errata 40k_Rulebook_March_2009.pdf,

bikes can turboboost during their scout movement..

2.
DA codex p.27 RW special Rules,

scouts, no model may make a turbo boost move whilst using scouts special rule..

The general rule is that Bikes with Scout may Turboboost. The specific rule is that Ravenwing Bikes cannot use Turboboost for their Scout move. The specific rule overwrites the general rule.

thanks culven..

it would have been nice to turboboost RW in the scout move, and then use their beacons for a non-scatter Deathwing assault in the first turn.

Could it be that they made that special in the DA codex to prevent that?

Weyco, it's more likely this was originally included in the codex as a pre-cursor to the 5th edition rules changes - the leaked alpha version of the 5th ed rules specifically prevented turboboosting bikes from making a scout move. This exclusion was dropped for the final 5th ed rules - but the DA codex had already been released by then, and GW have not errata'd this particular rule for the DA.

Full scout moves before game starts, it's a powerful tactic. My Vendettas can move 24" before game starts, so going 1st can suddenly be quite appealing ;)
