Immoblized Walker

Postby CmdrVimes » Tue Jul 19, 2011 3:19 pm

Is a dreadnaught that is immoblized limited to the fire arc it is facing at the time or is it assumed to be able to rotate it's torso like a turret? I can't find a definite rule in the BRB. If you have an Idea can you please give me a page number?

Hi, I didn't find a specific reference either, but while pivoting doesn't count as movement, immobilised vehicles cannot even pivot. So I will say that immobilised walkers are stuck with the 45 arc for shooting.

The only reference to non-moveable Dreads and the arc shooting is here regarding the Chaos Dreadnought in the Adepticon INIT FAQ:

CHAOS SPACE MARINES: CHAOS DREADNOUGHT (page 40)
CSM.40A.01 – Q: Will a Chaos Dreadnought
suffering from „Fire Frenzy‟ pivot to face a target
directly behind itself (if that is the closest target)?
A: No. The Dreadnought selects the closest target within
the 45 degree arc of fire of any of its weapons and then
pivots to face that target [clarification].

Although if we say it cannot pivot from Immobilisation then it does bode the question, then how could they deal with assaults from behind if they couldn't swing around/pivot to fight with their front armor?

At least my crazies won't be able to blast my Rhinos again if they aren't within that arc :)
