Hi Guys,
Have just got myself a Baneblade which I'm in the process if turning into an Octoblade.
My question is, if I take a transport variant to house my HWS, do they get to Overwatch if it gets charged?

Unfortunately not

The rule says they can shoot from them in their (your) shooting phase
If you read the rules about overwatch it specifically mentions it is considered the enemy's charge phase.

Look forward to seeing some pics of the BB! :D

Also, technically it is the vehicle that is being charged, not the passenger, so only the vehicle can overwatch.

 

I think a parallel is provided by the reroll-1s (and similar) in the shooting phase auras. I am quite sure they do not work on overwatch since the rule says it happens in the enemy charge phase, not in the shooting phase. However, the overwatch rule also says it uses "all normal rules" for shooting except that 6s are required to hit. This creates a bit of ambiguity, and has not been clarified yet as far as I know.

The Overwatch section does also state that no modifiers affect Overwatch.

Ok, Thanks. Just wanted to double check.
Will post some pics when I work out how. I'm about 75% done with painting it at the minute.

Here's the finished Octoblade. Haven't added mud or rust battle damage, on the fence as to whether I should add any.

Photobucket is what went wrong, unfortunately. Try imgur or postimg.org ?

Apparently photobucket changed their policies a few months ago and wont let you embed images to other sites any more. Fortunately B&C provide a free gallery for members to use on the forum. :) ;) :tu:

Looks great!
Hard to tell with the flash. Have you or are you planning to wash the rivets and recesses? Its a complete pain, but is worth it.

I'm unfamiliar with this term - 'Octoblade'. Is that simply referring to being able to swap out the turrets to run it as whatever variant?

Yup pretty much!

Elmo has done a great tutorial on how to do it yourself! :D

The magnetising itself isn't too painful. Painting all the pieces on the other hand...

Thanks. I washed the whole tank down, started doing the individual bits, but got bored, so took a large brush and went to town on the whole thing. Doesn't really show up that well in the pics, but they are washed, although the odd one may have been missed.

I used the tutorial on here for building it. Skipped a few steps and modified slightly as there were areas that needed drilling that I thought were unnecessary or likely to be messed up, so improvised in those sections.
