    Wraithcannon & D-Cannon on skimmers

    The discussion started on another thread,I think it should get one on his own.

    The rulebook states:"any hits that beat the armor of a skimmer moving 12" or more will be considered glancing instead of penetrating".

    Wraithcannon and D-Cannon don't beat the armor, they don't even have a S value. They have a special abilty which allows them to automatically deal glancing or penetrating hits on specific dice rolls. There's no additional D6 for vehicle penetration.

    I don't think that the skimmers damage reduction should be applied to D-Cannon and Wraithcannons, they never beat the armour, it's an automatic penetrating hit (if you get the right roll). The rulebook doesn't state:"all penetrating hits will be considered to be glancing instead", it specifically refers to hits beating the vehicle's armour.


    Actually Playing:

    I'd say they should only cause penetrating hits against Eldar vehicles, and glancing hits against other skimmers.

    This is because Eldar vehicles constantly have over 12" moving vehicles and it stops them having their cake and eating it.

    Seriously though - melta guns don't get penetrating hits despite saying that they always do. SO i don't see why other weapons do.

    This would also apply to Abaddon's daemon toothpick too.

    The easy answer was in the old eldar faq, the current answer is in the new bgb FAQ, p 4, where it clearly says that ANY HITS, NO MATTER THE SOURCE, be they CC or shooting, glances or pens, are reduced to glancing hits only.

    Sadly this is the case, though I don't think that GW took into consideration D-CAnnosna and Wraithcannons at the time. Tough luck then! ^_^
