View Full Version : Moving and warmachines

Okay, simple question, unless stated otherwise, can warmachines move and fire? For whatever reason I had it in my mind they couldnt, but after looking it up, Im having trouble finding a rule saying they cant. Thanks. (ie. boltthrower or hellcannon moving and still firing)

I seem to recall the warmachine rules in general place restrictions on movement: no marching, no moving and shooting.

Where does it state no moving and shooting? Also, what about cases where it must move due to compusary movement such as the hellcannon?

Most war machines may move up to the base Movement stat of the crew. This does not include stationary objects, such as the Casket of Souls and the Anvil of Doom (if a war machine is stationary, it will say so in it's rules).

However, if a war machine wishes to fire, the most movement it can make that turn is to pivot on the spot.

<<<EDIT>>> Page reference is page118 of the WFB rulebook, paragraphs "Moving a War Machine" and "Aiming a War Machine".
