PostSubject: Couple of Rules questions   Sat Dec 02 2017, 19:13

Last night I played a game against Harlequins. Fun match but some questions came from the battle.

Advance: if a unit advances, can it still shoot albeit at -1BS?
I didn’t see anything in the rule book that allowed this. It came up from Starweavers advancing all up in my deployment zone. Again I saw nothing in the BRB or Index that said they could fire at -1BS after advancing.

If a troupe with a Troupe Master dies but the troop master survives, does the Troop Master test morale in the morale phase? My opponent said no they don’t have to test bc they’re a character and not part of that unit per se. I figured he’d have to test since he was attached to that unit in every part of the game.

Thanks for any and all responses.

I don't speak Harlequin, but if the troop master is a unit champion then yes he will suffer morale. If the troop master is a character than he isn't part of the unit and deploys, moves, advances charges etc separately from the unit and so wouldn't suffer morale for the units casualties.
If a weapon is an assault weapon then yes, it can be fired at - 1 to hit after advancing. Rapid Fire, Heavy, Pistols etc cannot. The rules for weapon types are listed in the shooting phase section of the rulebook.

I am fairly certain the shuriken cannons are considered assault weapons on the star weavers so yes they can advance and shoot on a 4+.

As for the other question: say you have a 6 man troupe squad and a troupe master near by, the unit loses 3. They must take a morale at -3 I believe they can utilize the masters Ld if he is close enough, but since he is a character he himself would never take a moral test because he is his own unit

Awesome. That sounds about right and makes sense. Sadly he couldn’t explain it that way and couldn’t find the rules for it. Now that I know I’ll let him know. It wouldn’t have changed the outcome of the game (i won!) but still good to know.

Shuriken cannons are indeed assault weapons - check out the shooting section of the rules which explains that you can advance and still fire these at a penalty

As others have said, the masters is a character who acts independent of a unit (make sure he rolls seperate for charges and advances!). Unless he has a rule allowing it (he doesn't from memory) then his ld isn't relevant to the unit and they can't use it

To clarify, there is no "attached to the unit" anymore.
