Oh i'm very new to WH40K and i'm fielding an Iyanden craftworld army. My friends and i are learning as we go. i haven't read thru the entire rulebook as its a long read so i was unable to find an answer to this:
The wraithguard's wraithcannon has a value of "X" for its strength. I understand the special rules for the weapon for the most part. But what if i roll below 4 on the wound roll and dont get the automatic wound? is there no str value to compare on the chart to see if i might still wound the target? or does the hit have no effect if i dont get the automatic wound?
I appreciate any help.
I suggest you and everyone read the codex at least twice to get a clear understanding of it.Originally Posted by Archeantus
Yes, if you roll below a 4, nothing happens. You failed to wound. Even agianst a T2 grot, you have failed to wound.
Dreams give us a vision of a world unlike any we have seen. They present us with a glimpse of a better life; a goal to aspire to, and in the face of insurmountable odds, they provide us with the power to overcome, to live on, and to succeed where we would have otherwise failed.
thanks for your helpOriginally Posted by dymew
If a weapon has a strength value of 'X' it means the weapon has special rules of which the weapon only wounds on the roll of n+. You should be able to find this in the weapon's description.
Just so you understand the advantages of this, this means that it is ALWAYS equivalent to the targets toughness. So while this mean your weapons will suck against grots, where other races will be wounding nasties e.g. Monstrous Creatures on 6s, you'll still only a need a +4. So basically the Wraithcannon is only really inferior in 'strength' to e.g. a bolter, when you target stuff that is <T4, and is greatly superior when you target stuff >T4.
