View Full Version : Free Strikes Question

02-23-2013, 05:12 AM

I'm looking for a little clarification on how free strikes work. On p. 51 a Free Strike is 'one normal' melee attack. I'm wondering is if any special abilities a weapon has also activate during the Free Strike?

To be specific, for Capt. Sam Machorne and the Devil Dogs, I'm wondering if their nets get Knockdown during Free Strike attacks?

If the ability is a special action (*Action) then no, as these can only be used during a model's activation. And free strikes are an out of activation attack.

But in your example, one of the Devil Dogs would be able to use it to knock down a warbeast or warjack, as the net specifies it only knocks those two types of models down.
