Hi all,

first, let me say that I am from germany and have a german set of rules, so I am not familiar with the special english names of actions and units. But I will try to do my best ;)

I had my first EPIC game today and we had a problem with armor piercing units (like Land Raider and Mekboy tanks. How do I handle them, if they are in a detachment with normal units? Do they fire seperatly?
All they have to do is roll a 4+ to be able to fire and 4+ to kill they target unit?
thanks...

Anti Tank Weapons (AT) do not contribute to a detachment's Firepower they are a IIRC super-heavy weapon and will fire separately.

I don't have my rules to hand but there have been changes to the rules for AT weapons, look in FirePower #1 for details

Location: so close to US Hq I can almost smell it (well, not that close)
isn't it just +5 points per AT shot?

that is one part

the other is that in the main rules you can with AT weapons target an individual unit, but in the Firepower #1 errata, you can now only target either infantry or armour and hits are allocated as with FP
