This post comes about from a discussion on bolter&chainsword which can be found here.
To cut a long story short, a poster said that his opponent had told him that he could put an enemy unit in dangerous and difficult terrain over 18' even though he couldn't actually wound his opponents due to the FAQ.
Q. Does Murderous Hurricane require the power to hit or
wound its target to affect them? (p37)
A. No, a targeted unit is affected by Murderous Hurricane
even if the power fails to hit or wound.
and followed by the following rule from the rule book
Per page 17 in the BRB: "If a target is beyond the maximum range, it misses automatically. This is why you have to choose your target before measuring for range."
Now over the past couple of days I have been thinking about how to stop this use because I refuse to believe that that is what GW intended and yet I cannot so I put it to you the claws and fists readers.
