That my friends is been a crew member of a vehicle, it matters not of which type it is for there is one thing for sure & that is if the vehicle is recked or destroyed if your a crew member then your dead.
|Even power armour won't keep the crew alive|
But does it always have to be that way ? eh no is the answer, in IA4 there is a mission called thunderhawk down which is about one player trying to rescue the survivors from a crashed thunderhawk among which are 4 crew members.
|crew 3 crew that will die 3|
This got me thinking of a fun little way to put a bit more dept ed into a game of 40k, I know in the older codices they would tell you the amount of crew under the vehicle entry I'm not sure if this is still the case, but if not you could find out other ways or just decide how many they are yourself.
|A land raider maybe hard to destory but when you do there goes the crew|
|a tank or a coffin|
|even in a flyer the passangers have some small hope|
Well thats my bit on away to try to say thank you to the ones with the most dangerous job in 40k so if you feel like trying something completely different for a bit of fun in a game of 40k give the crew a change to live they'll thank you for it lol.
|when this goes down theres no one coming out of it|
