Fast transport skimmers crashing moving flat out

Postby langstraad » Sun Mar 04, 2012 11:06 am

A fast skimmer transport with passengers on board moves flat out (24").

An immobillized or wrecked fast skimmer with passengers after moving flat out kills all the passengers. They cannot disembark after moving flat out and therefore are casualties.

An exploded fast skimmer that moved flat out with passengers wouldn't kill the passengers as they don't disembark and are just placed within the area of the crater placed where the skimmer was?

Yep, seems like it. They'd live but only in that scenario. Immobilized = wrecked, and wrecked = dead passengers.


HOWEVER, the BRB FAQ says otherwise:

Q: If a transport vehicle is destroyed in a Movement
phase in which it has moved flat out, what happens to
any embarked models, as passengers may not
disembark from a vehicle that has moved flat out in
that Movement phase? (p70)
A: They are removed as casualties


Destroyed covers both Wrecked and Exploded. Passengers die no matter what.

Passangers don't die in either situation. As the FAQ you cited explains, that only occurs when a vehicle is immobilized in it's own movement phase. It doesn't matter how fast a vehicle moved when it is destroyed in a different phase or turn.

Actually, yes they do. The FAQ clearly says "Destroyed," not "Destroyed - Wrecked" or "Destroyed - Explodes", but simply "Destroyed", which covers both instances, and so the passengers die no matter what.

The OP is specifically asking what happens when the transport kills itself, not when somebody else shoots it down. It dying in a different phase/turn was never a part of the topic.

I disagree, because how can it wreck or explode itself? The only possible result is that it immobilizes itself on terrain and then is destroyed as a result of moving flat out. And yes, any passengers would then be destroyed.

I agree with this, therefore if it were destroyed by coteaz or some other out of sequence attack, all passengers would be killed.

By becoming Immobilized, as you said. I suppose it can't Explode itself though.

Agreed! :D
