If Murdoch is attached to Dannon Blythe & Bull and Bull assault charges does he get his d3 shots from rapid fire?

If so then could bull Assault- make his d3 ranged attacks- and backswing?

Related question would Murdoch gain the benefits of Blythe's "Huntsman" ability?

by what i can tell yes all of that works...
rapid fire isnt a special action of any type and happens when he fires the weapon...
nothing in assault prevents special melee attacks i dont believe so backswing is fine afterwards...
and huntsman apples to the unit, which murdoch is now part of...

seems all good to me.

Bull can't use rapid fire while assaulting. Rapid fire triggers when you choose to make initial attacks, the assault shot isn't an initial attack.

Correct.


Rapid Fire [d3] - When you decide to make initial attacks with this weapon at the beginning of this modelʼs combat action, roll a d3. The total rolled is the number of initial attacks this model can make with this weapon during the combat action, ignoring ROF.

Murdoch would benefit from Huntsman, since he is a member of the unit.

Yes, Backswing is on a melee weapon, so may be used on charges.
