The question in summary would be this: because a Iron Blaster is a chariot, it can only shoot what it can see, and it can only see in it's forward arc. Thus, as it follows the rules of a chariot, in the shooting phase it may not make a pivot on the spot to shoot 360 degrees, am' I correct in assuming this?
We had a discussion amongst my gaming group the other day about this, the Ogre player in my group citing (claiming more or less) the Hellcannon has the ability for a pivot in the shooting phase for 360 degree line of sight, and is a monster. As a result he believes it sets a precedent for the Iron Blaster to have the same.
However, I disagreed stating that the Hellcannon specifically mentions that: "it shoots like a stone thrower and thus is allowed to pivot and fire blindly" and that the quote from the Iron Blaster's description (or what he read to me anyways) did not categorize the Iron Blaster with the same qualifications.
We will be going to a tournament soon, and I' am bringing this up to the T.O's rules group, however I would like to hear your thoughts.
P.S, if this is a really easy fix solved by the WoC and Ogre book, then it's a shame as I have neither and no one in our gaming group plays WoC -keep this in mind before rattling off at how "I need to look in the WoC book broooo."
