This is my first post here, I've found it very informative just reading through the posts since finding the site.
Anyhow I've just started 40k and I have the rules down pretty well. I have run into one problem though.
I have an Exorcist in my SoB army and I frequently use it to assault other vehicles and tanks, now how exactly do the rolls work for this? Here's how I've been doing it:
Roll a D6 to determine attacks (say I get a 5)
I roll 5 D6 to determine hits with a BS of 4 (say I get 4 missiles to hit)
Now I roll 4 D6 for armor penetration (say I get 3 penetrating)
Finally I roll 3 D6 for penetrating hits.
Last I take the best result as the determining factor.
Is this correct? I'm playing with a group of 5-6 people and we're all beginners, so nobody is really sure, and I don't want to cheat. Someone suggested the results may be cumulative (like a crew stunned + armament destroyed....ect) But that doesn't sound quite right. Any clarification would be welcomed. Thanks in advance.
You got it right except for the last part. You apply ALL the results. So you could get a weapon disable, vehicle imobilized and a vehicle stunned, for example, from your three hits that made it through in the end. Sometimes it won't matter. If you get a vehicle destroyed on the first results check, you might as well stop there.
Just remember though, that if the vehicle explodes, it only does so once. If one "Vehicle Explodes!" result and one "Vehicle Annihilated!" result is inflicted, you must choose the most destructive one (the annihilation).
If several explosions are caused, you may roll a blast radius for each result, and choose the one which you find suits the situation better (if you have a lot of friendly models around the vehicle you might want to pick a low-radius roll).
