Yes you read the title correctly. Slow and Purposeful works on any unit that has at least one model with that special rule. Take a Warboss in Mega armor and attach him to a unit of 15 Lootas. The Lootas can now move and fire heavy weapons and also assault the turn they fire heavy weapons.

Reece Robbins at Frontline Gaming is coming up with a ton of these little 'loopholes'. I've poo-poo'd a number of them, but now he is hitting on some winners.

if they have slow and purposeful, then they don't get to overwatch

Yea but who wants assault them? They have an attached Warboss in mega armor in combat who can ignore any wound he doesn't like on a 2+ with Look out Sir.

i would assault them with pretty much anything. then the lootas are dead and the warboss can wander off to do something else. In any case then the lootas are no longer shooting me

Good point. I'll have to change tactics. Between your army and the Lootas are 120 Ork Boyz. Good luck getting to the Lootas. :D

Since one couldn't compete with Troops, maybe someone with like 6 Flying Monstrous Creatures could simultaneously Vector Strike that unit, and then shoot Daemonic Gazes and Bolts of Tzeentch at them afterwards. Meanwhile a couple Soul Grinders can spit Phlegm on the other Boyz and then assault them and tie them up for 3 or 4 turns; Klaws schmawz.

Could you put that unit in a battlewagon? Hell even without the Mega Armour warboss, a Battlewagon driving around can still snapshot which isnt much of a hit off their to hit roll. If they fire at flyers, it makes no differance.

Ooohhh put them in a battle wagon! I like that idea. You could move the wagon 6" or 7" if it's red and still fire the Lootas. You could put them in a truck and move 12-13" and still fire at normal BS.
