Destroyer weapons

Postby thesignaller » Wed Aug 26, 2015 8:25 pm

A couple of questions

Destroyer primary weapon versus vehicles, still roll 2 dice and pick best?

Versus infantry, if unit under blast template has say 3 figures under, roll 3 times on D table, if say get 3 rolls of 4 each causing D3+1 wounds, is this for the unit or just the 3 models? If roll high with all 3 could.I.possibly inflict 12 hits on an orc boyz unit?

I take it no saving roll means invulnerable also?

Thanks

A roll on the Destroyer table only applies to an individual model.

vs vehicles: no extra dice. Primary weapons get an extra dice for armour pen rolls. Destroyer weapons roll on the special table instead of rolling to pen. Just one roll on the table per hit.
vs infantry: just for the 3 models. Each model will take the wounds, they don't spill over onto other models.

no saving throw: On results of a 6 on the destroyer table no saves of any kind allowed (also remember feel no pain cannot be taken against any destroyer wound, not just a 6 result destroyer wound), so thats no armour, cover, or invulnerable saves, and no feel no pain rolls.

Its still good against big units if its a big blast marker or multishot weapon.

Thanks for the replies.

Was trying to decide on my Baneblade build, going for the Volcano Cannon armed Shadowsword!

I suppose a sD AP2 hitting a unit of terminators all under the large blast template could be painful!
