View Full Version : melta bomb question

I don't know how to ask this question without violating the points rule, but I am going to try.

Squads like an assault space marine squad and bike squad are allowed to bring melta bombs at a fraction of the normal cost. My question is, if I bring just one bomb for the vet...do they get to bring the bomb for that reduced price? If not why? Thank you!

the vet will buy the bomb at whatever cost it specifies for the vet himself. If the only way he can buy his own bomb separately, is from the codex armoury, he has to pay the normal armoury price. If it specifies in his entry that he can take meltabomb for x points he can.

The bombs for the squad are priced as a whole-squad upgrade, and tend to be the point cost per model. The assault squad is an example of this, the meltabombs for the squad are per model, and the vet sergeant can only select them from the armoury (if you choose to buy for him alone).
