Tau Flechete dischargers

Post  AllmightyDM on Wed Feb 08, 2012 5:10 pm

Do the dischargers hit models assaulting the vehicle, or every enemy model in an assault that includes the vehicle?

Example, squad A assaults squad B and vehicle C. Vehicle C has flechete dischargers. Squad A only has 2 people assaulting the vehicle, how many of them get hit by the discharger?

I don't have the book, just didn't seem intuitive to me. I'll find a copy and post it.

IIRC it says models attacking, which would be every model contributing an attack. But as I don't have the codex I can't say 100%

The book says "any model attacking the vehicle in close combat will be wounded on a D6 roll of 4+, with saves allowed, before resolving its attacks." Which would lead me to interpret it as any model directing its attacks at the vehicle. In the case of a multi assault, only the models that are swinging at the vehicle get hit with it (before they swing). But I can certainly see a case being made for all of an assaulting unit being hit.

From a fluff perspective, imagine the whole vehicle covered in claymore mines, when an assault occurs, a crew-member hits a button and they 'splode all over the battlefield. Sending millions of tiny metal spheres all over the place (Remember swordfish?) doing all kinds of damage, and wreaking general havoc.

Oh I know, but in the case that it came up, a bunch of tau soldiers were dumped out next to it, all but two of my wyches hit the soldiers.

Thats certainly one interpretation of the rules, although i know some may rule it another way (heck, in the past, even I have lol)...

To me its only the models attacking the tank because it says "models attacking" and not "assaulting models"
