View Full Version : Cities of Death and RaW

16-05-2007, 02:07
Hello all,

While I was reading my copy of Cities of Death, I realized that I could have, by RaW, a S9 AP3 Missile Launcher. This could be done because of the wording for fuel dump on page 34:

"... may add 1 to the Strength of any template weapons."

I am correct, right?

krak missile launchers are not template weapons, your think of frag missles.
and im pretty sure frag might not be either, but thats jsut the wording on blast vs. template.
i think that rule is suposed to work on flamers and such
EDIT: adn this is probably best suted for the rules forum?

by Template I think they mean Flamer.

and if it included blasts too (which I dont think it does) it would only count towards the Frag missile, as firing a Krak missile is not a Template or Blast weapon.

thought i was right there, just didnt know if i worded/explained it properly, as im not the best at doing that. :S

Template is the teardrop-shaped gizmo. Frag missiles are blast, and aren't S8.

Heh :D , didnt realize by template they meant flamer not blast...

Thanks anyway,

If a rule mentions Template, it means Flamer Template.
Blast = Small Blast Template
Large Blast = Ordnance Template

That would mean the ether lance works against it?

seemingly... what about Plague banner?>?>?>?>


The Good Doctor.

p.s. Oh, wait... it doesn't have a strength value anyway does it?

Here's another one.... Destructor for Eldar. Technically, it's a template weapon. So if a Warlock with Destructor uses an Eldar fuel dump, it becomes a S6 template weapon? :D

By RAW if it uses the flame template as its mode of attack, then it benefits from the Fuel Dump.

"Quick my warlock friend, eat up these wacky psychic space-cakes that have been accidentally left with this pile of flamer-fuel" :D

Does that mean gassing up the Callidus' Neural Shredder can make it S9?

you all need a mackeral slap.

just use it for flamers as it is indicated in the entry.

*ya send this to rules forum*

I've been using it with Eldar Destructor since CoD came out; if it uses the tear drop template, and has a strength value, fuel depot applies.

My only criticism of fuel depot is that it says 'within 6" of the building' which gets a bit random with area of effect. Most people have buildings that range from 6"x6" all the way up to 24"x24" and then you tack on another 6" to the possible area of effect. Though the teardrop template doesn't reach any father, the possible number squads that can use this ability is just a bit broken.

Was just thinking that, or an incinerator... though why you would want it S7 rather than S6 I dont know

well since it is an add on str not the base str of the weapon would it count as a defensive weapon still?
