View Full Version : crippled systems and chain attacks

01-12-2014, 02:04 PM
Hi folks

A situation arose today where I had a seether with both arms crippled, it hit withboith initials triggering the chain attack and I choose to do ahead butt. At this point we stopped to check rules and somebody pointed out there was a ruling made that crippled systems can still trigger chain attacks but cannot participate in the attack I.e for 2 hand throws etc.

Can somebody please clarify the correct ruling

Many thanks

It's not a 'ruling', it's part of the core rules. Check the section on crippled weapon systems in Prime.

Also, there's no such things as "can trigger chain attacks but cannot participate in the attack" - models with crippled weapons that are required for the chain attack can't trigger the chain attack.

You cant make chain attacks with the Seether if either of its arms are crippled. There are no rulings that change this.
