    Gantry Room Rules?

    Are there any special rules for this room?

    Yes, but best to look for the scenario on line. I remember that models can't cut corners diagonally, and you can't flame the whole room with one flamer hit (can't remember the details about that one).

    I found one more rule, that says, that flamer hits will be removed in the beginning of the Stealer phase. Is there any rule, about the possibility to fall down the shaft?

    I would play the pitfall rule,there is a 1 in 6 chance in Terminator armour you will trip and fall.

    That was my first idea, too. BUT, as the way through that room forces you to roll the dice 6 times, the chance to fall is too high. Maybe it would make sense, to roll the dice, when the model survived an attack?

    That tile, and the rules, were part of the Duty & Honour Campaign in WD 201:

    The Genestealer entry point in the Gantry Room is the square directly opposite the gantry square that sticks out over the drop.

    If a Space Marine is in the Gantry Room at the start of the Genestealer turn, the Genestealer reinfocements must lurk for 1 turn. Any blip enering play must be converted and the Genestealers must enter at the entry point, one at a time. Any models from the same blip that cannot enter in the same turn are lost.

    All flamer counters* on the gantry square are removed at the end of the Space Marine turn, even if there are two or more counters on one square. There is nothing to keep the fire burning.

    A model in a doorway cannot see the corner squares at that end of the room.

    *Note: flamers worked differently in 2nd edition, with multiple tokens covering individual squares, instead of one token covering a room)

    The Duty & Honour campaign is one of the Ipad missions you can get, but they removed the gantry tile, and thus the rules, since it's not in the 3rd/4th edition SH set. (So I think reproducing it here classifies as `fair use', since GW obviously is no longer making money off it).

    I'm painting a crapload of quite old models for WFB, 40K, Blood Bowl, Quest, Necromunda, BFG and more. Cheer me on!
    I'm also restoring 20+ old Mk1 Space Marine tanks. Wave your pom-poms!

    Models painted (% finished): 2014: 51 (6.6%); 2015: 106 (13.5%); 2016: 163 (22.6%); 2017: 35 (25.2%)
