    Rapid Fire and Get's Hot!

    Alright, this seems like a silly qestion to me, but I can't decide what the answer is.

    When rapid firing a Get's Hot! weapon is it a wound on a 1 or 2 for both shots or a wound on a 1 for the first shot and a 1 or a 2 on the second shot?

    It says "rolls of 1 or 2" - and that applies to any dice you roll, not just the first.


    Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.

    Thanks, that's what I figured. Just needed a sanity check.

    Well since you roll for the shots together it would be a one or a two. Ideally you would be rolling all the dice for bolter shots and two dice of a different color or size for the plasma at the same time.

    Therefore a one or a two will would your precious special weapon trooper.

    A good habit to get into as far as weapons firing is either get enough dice so you can throw the whole unit at the same time, or declare what models are shooting before you roll.

    The reason I mention this is the propensity of people to try and minimize their own risks illegally. They'll roll their bolters first, and check wounds/saves, then declare IF the heavy stuff is shooting.

    People will do this to not overkill units so they can get charge distances on a weakened unit without removing the target altogether. Again, against the rules.

    So get in the habit of declaring. Good sportsmanship and it obeys the rules. It also is a simplifies things=)
    My armies:
    16,000+ of Eldar (only need flyers)
    7,000+ of Nids (want heirophant)
    6,000+ of Space Marines (need rever titan)
    4,400+ of Cygnar (all models for the faction)
    1,500+ of Legion (just started)

    Yeah, I do this. I just rarely use plasma guns (because of the risk), but decided I would live on the edge in the upcoming tournament. Before I do that, I thought I'd make sure I have the rules right.

    Thanks for the comments.
