Repairing vehicles

Postby WaaaghDynasty » Mon Aug 07, 2017 2:05 pm

So I was reviewing the Orky codex, and see that the "Mekaniak" rule in all its forms specifies that "a vehicle may only be repaired once each turn". I assume that this means that regardless of how many Meks/Spanners/Big Meks you have nearby, you can only repair a vehicle once per turn.

However, you can still upgrade up to 3 Lootas to Spanner Boyz (with the "Mekaniak" repair rule). Am I misreading this rule? It's pretty unlikely that you would have more than 1 vehicle around this unit.

Thanks!

You are correct, it would be highly inefficient to upgrade more than one loota to mek. Though I have found that my KFF big mek rolling with my killa kanz is rarely lacking for models in need of repair after a turn or two.
Game Preferences:
A model may assault upper levels of terrain if they charge far enough to climb them
All current beta rules in effect unless opponent prefers otherwise
