    Thats what it was in 8th as well. If you saw it you could shoot it. Now we have terrain features that will obscure things. Use ones imagination as model size does not always equal scaled sized of that unit. So for the picture of the 2 tanks on opposite sides of the wall its possible the "Magic Bullet" is the tank commander going "Frak this! Shoot it through the wall and maybe we get lucky!" As for the space marine hitting the flag, maybe the Bolt strikes the flag tearing it off and causing it to fall into the engine, onto an exposed crew member, or into the exhaust. Its war and chaos happens frequently. Just apply Imagination.

    These two tanks can legally shoot at each other, despite the only way they can “see” each other is by drawing a 90° angle from the muzzle of their gun: This Chaos Rhino can use the tips of its radio aerials to see (and thus, shoot) at the Marine on the other side of the barrier: I don’t care what the rules say, this is dumb.

    Some models with bases have special rules that say to use the hull (which is the case for Monliths and Repulsors), or to use whichever of the hull/base is closer (which is the case for Raiders); if not, then you use the base. So no, your Raider shenanigans doesn't work, and Venoms don't stick out far enough beyond the base to attempt that anyway.

    I shouldn’t have to ever invoke π when playing with toy soldiers.

    Excuse the crude sketch, but here we can see a turret with a 2.5” distance between pivot and muzzle. If the turret rotates 90°, the straight line distance between A and B is a mere 3.5”, but the distance traveled along the circumference of the circle is 3.9”. It gets worse the farther it rotates. If it rotated 180°, the straight-line distance between A and B would be 5”, but the path travelled would be 7.9”! And this is for a very short barrel, like a the twin-lascannon Predator Annihilator. With a battle cannon or a vanquisher cannon on a Leman Russ the problem literally becomes exponentially worse.

    Rotating the turret does still count as moving the tank

    Considering that there are no fire arcs for vehicle weapons, this is all a bit of a meaningless discussion. You don't need to rotate the turret or sponsons or whatever unless you just think it looks better, and anyone who's going to nitpick against you for trying to bring in a tiny bit of "rule of cool" by rotating your weapons to face what you're shooting at is probably a dickbag not worth playing against. Movement is the same; measure from point A on the vehicle at the start of the move to point A on the vehicle at the end of the move.

    Many of the Marvel Crisis Protocol miniatures have tiny bitz and intricate details. But Valkyrie is by far the worst (best?) of the lot so far... Her legs are five pieces! Her forearms join just below her elbows with connection points that are less than a millimeter wide! Her head comes in three separate pieces! HER HEAD!

    Sunday Game night is back.

    I miss you guys, but with a recovering cancer patient in my house, I'm taking no risks. It sucks, and I desperately want to game with everyone. I'll see you once we're vaccinated.

    I'm saying that anyone who tries to draw LOS from the tip of a sideways gun barrel is cheesing the rules. Lack of facing is fine, I don't necessarily always agree with it, but it's one thing to draw LOS from a vehicle's hull in a reasonable position. It's something entirely different to take a corner case like that and abuse the rules to do something utterly ridiculous and stupid. This is why I've become so selective about who I play 40k with. People who tout RAW over any semblance of reasonable thought and sensibility are people I don't want to play with.
