I just "rolled off" on it, and I came up with you hop. So from now on, all shall hop. Like Cort(Slyde) said, it's just like DS'ing termies.

End of story, please. It's kinda of silly. :)

I think, and this is speaking for myself and not Lou, you have the placement of your Drop Pods wrong. I seem to recall you stating you were placing your model on top of my squad and then you rolled the scatter dice. I believe the general consensus is that you're supposed to place the model in a legitimate location first, neither on top of an enemy unit or in impassable terrain being of that variety of locations, and then roll for scatter with all the resuting hoo-hah. Placing a Drop Pod is not like firing a template weapon basically...

"And remember Lou, Historicals people go nuts over historical accuracy. Therefore it's critically important you quote the movie with that accent as much as possible while playing every game."

I believe that's the fourth... :lol

Just remember, my Deathwing Terminators pass all their morale checks, including being tank shocked... :b ;)

?

Deathwing terminators are stubborn, so they would auto-pass their moral check when tank shocked.

Or am I missing something.

It was a joke. Lou tried to tank shock two of my squads away from the Take and Hold objective in his last turn with a weaponless Ork Buggy/Wartrack. He didn't know that Stubborn makes the Deathwing pass all Morale checks.

It basically treats you as Fearless, except for pinning, so you need to take wounds if you loss combat & outnumbered by 2:1, but I don't know if that happened in our game, since my unit sizes aren't that big. You've got 2+ saves anyway, but ya never know. :)
