Hey guys,

Quick question: Things like the Kodiak's Vent Steam Attack note at the end that the model can make additional melee attacks following the special attack. This is if he expends focus, correct?

I was just curious because this kind of attack specifes that further attacks can be made while things like a Cryx Slayer combo strike makes no mention.

Thanks!

Jeremy

Vent Steam is a special attack (cause it's a special rule of the jack) while Combo Strike is a special melee attack (cause it's a special rule of a weapon).
Vent Steam distinctly grants the ability to make further melee attacks since a model can't make different types of attacks during its activation.

To answer your question, yes, 'Additional Attacks' cost focus. Only Initial Attacks are free, and the special (*) attacks eat up your Initial Attacks.

When buying additional attacks after a special attack, you may only buy attacks of the type the special attack was.

Example: The Thunderhead makes a pulse a *Attack on his ranged weapon. He may buy additional ranged attacks

The Slayer makes a Combo Strike, a *Attack on his melee weapon. He may now buy additional melee attacks.

*Attack Vent Steam is not attached to a weapon. Normally this would mean that you cannot buy attacks after making the attack, but the rule specifies you may make additional melee attacks after making Vent Steam. So, you may now buy additional melee attacks.
