Yeah treated as the same model is not the same as giving permission to use each other's rules. Obviously they are not the same model since either one can take the hits. What about the quantum shielding does the rider now have av13 ?
There is no each other. It's one model now.
And quantum shielding does not alter toughness so there is no effect.
those two sentences dont follow the same logic. if it is one model how can it have both an armour value and a toughness value?
I think the way to look at it is that it is two seperate models, each with their own individual rules, with additional special rules applied to both because of the chariot ruleset.
ie only the rules specifically mentioned as applying to both models will actually apply to both models. rules applying to only one model, ie lords invuln, barges av13, only apply to that model unless it specifically says in the rules that it is shared.
so if the chariot takes a hit, it gets allocated to the lord, only then does the 3++ get used because the lord has taken the hit and he is allowed his invulnerable save.
