Independent [how does targeting work?].
« on: July 11, 2007, 01:04:48 PM »
Just want to make sure I have this right, independent models are still units and can be targeted like any other unit (unlike characters). Thus our cult assassins can be targeted even from across the board with a lascannon by passing a target check.

A single model not granted the independent character rule can be targeted like any other unit, and all the regular shooting rules apply (range, LOS, priority and so on).

If you have 3 DCAs' on the board counting as one unit and they are each spread out across the board and you had multiple shots and suffered multiple wounds, you would only lose one model if multiple wounds/saves are failed.

All models are called UNITS, even tanks.  Sometimes in the literature of the rules throughout the BGB and codex you should keep in mind to pay attention to words like "MODELS", "UNITS" as interpretations can get confusing and combined.

See "SHOOTING AT CHARACTERS" on page 51 of the 4th Edition Warhammer 40,000 rulebook.

Death Cult Assassins and Temple Assassins are not Independent Characters and are thus treated as any other unit.  They have the "Independent" rule, but not the "Independent Characters" rule, which are two different things.
