Hey, so I was just considering with the new Huge base sizes how they would interact with abilities like Burst Fire. With something like Armor Piercing (another base size-dependent ability) I would assume it just halves the armor of the battle engine normally, but I don't know if Burst Fire would ramp up to a POW +3 (following the trend) or just cap out at +2. My instinct is the former, but without official errata I'm not sure.

As written, Burst Fire would currently have no additional effect against a Huge base model unless they errata it. Armour Piercing already works against them though since small based models suffer +2 and halves the armour of medium or larger bases. Yeah, it actually says larger rather than large. So at least on that front, it looks like they were thinking ahead.
