    i was just reading my rulebook and looking at the gun strength.
    since the bolgun has an armour pierce of 5 does it ignore ork(or any other) armour that has to roll A FIVE OR SIX to make an armour save??
    I ignores their save???
    i'm just trying to get it straight in my head...

    Yup...
    The projectiles just smash through that light armour, it doesn&#39;t provide any protection.

    However, this means that there is a huge difference between a 5+ and a 4+ save, because of all the AP5 weapons out there. Personally, i&#39;d prefer a armour save modification system, because it&#39;s somehow strange that krak missiles bounce off artificier armour like a tennis ball (which is nothing else than slightly improved power armour), while normal power provides as much protection as a t-shirt.

    Yeah I too would like to see save modifiers. It would mean a rewrite of every points value in every codex though.

    Yeah those save modifiers would make sense, but they are more of a house rule project methinks (like the invulnerable save discussed before).

    Didn&#39;t they have armour saves on 2nd ed? And wasn&#39;t it a nightmare? Mymemory is very vague on 2nd ed.

    Fanatsy uses it and it works as did 2nd edition 40K. One of the things I liked but it does make the game more complex. And I beleive GW is trying tog et away from complex and make things more streamlined and easy for younger folk to follow.
