Greetings all. Once again I come bearing questions that I hope you all can grant sensable answers to .
1st Question: The Hellfire Round used by sternguard vets is concidered strength X and wounds on a 2+. How does this work against vehicles? What is it's strenth concidered against them. I can't find it anywere in the book.
2nd Question: A true GW Drop pod has open doors from units getting out. With that in mind a GW drop is not totaly blocking LOS if you can see through the gaps, correct? With that said, i'm fielding red party cup drop pods which he can't see through. How would we figure that being they don't have LOS but if I had true ones he might have LOS?
Thanks in Advance
1) Well I don't have the new SM Codex on hand (after all.... it's not officially released yet) but if it is really a Strength X weapon, than against tanks it'll be a normal X+1D6.... which, as you can see, can't even have a chance of ever glancing anything. I guess it makes sense since fire from these shells can be shrugged off easily by a vehicle's armor.
2) If it's normal, basic, unpainted party cups... why not put holes in them? ;) It's not like you're representing the open doors resting on the ground around the Drop Pod either... Just make sure to remember never to drink from them again! If not, play it WYSIWYG and say that it blocks LOS completely...
comparing this total with the Armour Value of the appropriate facing.
So, a S4 weapon - like a Boltgun - +d6S, can Glance AV10; S5 AV11; S6 AV12, etc.The new TLoS rule puts an unnecessary burden on players to patch holes in all their terrain bits -a GW drop is not totaly blocking LOS if you can see through the gaps, correct? With that said, i'm fielding red party cup drop pods
In my case, a work-around is the declaration that all my Gothic City terrain is glazed with transparent Adamantium.
This way - yes, you can see through it, but it's bullet-proof, so neener - I needn't "board-up" all of my windows.
We play as before with no one side gaining any particular advantage, so it's fair as can be.
In your case, Pods on the board are, in essence, Immobilised OT Vehicles no matter how they look.
Just declare that it's no less transparent than any other OT Vehicle, and don't deny the same rule to opponents.
As long as your counts-as bits are fun and not confusing or one-sidedly advantageous, there's no reason not to use 'em.
