i play eldar and so far every game i have played was with somebody that knew what he was doing. today i tried to play with a friend who i played 800 points vs 800 points and i had no idea what strength was used for. i believed it has to do with attacking vehicle armor. anyway any help at all would be useful
1. Buy a rulebook.
2. If you are currently saving money to buy a rulebook then go down to GW and read the basics from their copy. Talk to a GW member and ask them to give you the basics of the game.
3. Talk to your opponents about what the rules are.
4. Strength is used for wounding people, by beating their toughness.
5. How the heck did you manage to play a couple of games without knowing what strength is for???
LordLink summed it up pretty well, but in the unlikely case that you have a rulebook and are unsure of where to look:
Strength in general is used for determining how likely you are to deal damage to an enemy you've hit (Model Strength for close combat, Weapon Strength for shooting). See the WH40K Rulebook pg 12 for the former, pg 28 for the latter, and pg 42 for the Strength vs Toughness chart you'll need to determine whether you've wounded the enemy. Weapon Strength also gets calculated into the Armor Penetration when used against vehicles; see pgs 65-7 for more on that.
If you have more specific questions after checking the rulebook, feel free to ask!
Ok thank you
if it wouldnt be to much trouble could you possibly show me the strength vs toughness chart
if it is to big to show thank you anyways and next time im at GW ill check the rulebook out
It's always treading on thin ice how much we can reveal here...
1 higher strength than their toughness you wound on 3+. 1 lower you wound on 5+. 2 or more higher you wound on 2+. 2 or more lower you wound on 6+.
The rulebook is important - more accurately, it's vital.
See my signature for my thoughts...
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
