Hey all, now I would normally opt to equip my warhound with two twin turbos, but the lowly vulcan mega bolter and, every other moderate strength weapons with more than one shot, has made a come back in my mind.
Here is my question, if I use a weapon, (we'll use the vulcan MB as the example) against something with void shields, if I roll more than one "hit" (as in hit it, and rolled high enough to hurt the AV) would that shut down one shield since it's one weapon, or would it carry on to each other shield in turn? I leave this up to you who are more experienced players.
If it does a VMB and a twin turbo could be a great titan hunter (and I know it's redundant if you have other "heavy" weapons in the army to take down the shields, but thats not always the case).
No every hit you cause, cause 1 void shield to go down. It's not limited to one per firing unit. Although a MB doesn't have the best chance to cause that many hits, I know it's a lot of shots but you still need 6's

Killed 900 pts worth of Blood Angels in 2 turns while only loosing 4 pts.
I know not every hit does that, I pointed that out in the brackets. Every "wound" persay does that.
You take down as one shield for every glancing or penetrating hit inflicted, and if you knock down all the shields, they would continue on to the vehicles real armour value.
Because of this, you would need to roll for hits, then roll to penetrate each hit one at a time rather than rolling together, because a hit that would knock down a void shield might not even glance the Titan's armour:
Imagine - You are shooting at a Titan with one void shield left. With two S8 hits, you get a 6 and a 4 - so AV 14 and 12.
If you rolled the 12 then the 14, that's the last Void Shield down, then a Glancing hit.
But, If you rolled the 14 then the 12, that's still a Void shield down from the 14, but the 12 would not even glance the Titan's armour.
If all the dice were rolled together, the attacker could claim than all the lower number hits were against void shield and the higher against the vehicle, whereas the owner of the Titan could say the higher hits were all used against void shields - hence it is much clearer if each hit rolls for penetration one at a time, to account for the potential change in AV.
I hope that makes sense. It certainly does in my head.
It was a bit confusing to work that out, but I'm just glad that after one dice gets through one void shield, the rest move on to the next, thanks.
