PostSubject: _How do you play with Splinter Racks/   Wed Jan 21 2015, 20:55

So, since GW hasn't updated the FAQ in regards to the way the Splinter Racks rules are worded, I'm curious as to how everyone is playing it.

For those out-of-the-know, the rules state that as long as there is a single model embarked upon a Raider equipped with Splinter Racks, all(the operative word here) Splinter Weapons are Twin Linked.

Which means that not only does the embarked unit benefit from this minor costed upgrade, but the entire board does as well. Personally, I don't use the rules as worded in friendly games, because I believe that it will(and should) be changed.

Anyway, I just want to know how your local area plays it.

Thanks!

Splinter racks are on Raiders, yes?
There are no splinter weapons on the raider, as it can only have a disintergrator cannon or a dark lance. Neither of which are splinter weapons.

It doesn't say all splinter weapons on the unit, or on the vehicle. It says all splinter weapons. So technically it twin-links every splinter weapon on the table, friend or foe. I don't play it that way though.

The rules summary in the fold out pages at the back of the hard copy codex are more clear on this matter - it applies to splinter weapons carried by models embarked on the vehicle.

I appreciate that the rule in the main section of the book is written differently but i find the summary version to be the one that makes more sense, so that's how I play it.

Sometime, we'll have to have a game were we play the rules *exactly* as written. I'll use this and our nid player can use his nuclear-holocaust pyrovore. Twisted Evil

Who would seriously think that a single model embarked on a Raider would make every splinter weapon on the table twin-linked?

That's not even cheese anymore, mate.

The same people who think laser-pointers mounted on someone else's gun can make you shoot more accurately?

Is it really confined to just one table? study

At a tournament "Ok, everyone, I'm using a Raider with Splinter Racks so all DE players have TL splinter weapons as long as it's alive. I'll let you know if it dies."

Sweet, I have a new tournament strategy Wink

Also, wouldn't that count from reserve as well? Because this is an awesome tactic!

Even though its not explicitly mentioned I can't wrap my mind around the fact that someone would honestly, without trying to break the game, believe the proposed rule explanation is the correct one Razz

I am all for finding the edge but this is just plain silly. Don't expect GW to understand how to make a proper formulation with regard to a ruleset Very Happy

With some careful organisation, we should be able to ensure that at least one Dark City denizen has a model on a raider with splinter racks somewhere in the world - so that we can ALL claim the rerolls! Very Happy

I currently have a model embarked on a Raider with splinter racks in a game I'm playing against myself. I've taken a brief pause for a restroom break, but will restart the game in 2016 - till then we should all be good, right?

2016? What are you doing, just washing your hands?

Surely you could stretch to 2020?

If you need 12 months+ to go to the toilet you should probably see a Doctor!

I call BS on this one. I do not believe for a second that you have an active list with a splinterrack anywhere! Very Happy
