Ok, so my question is this, when you fire a stone thrower at a monsterous mount, or a stegadon, or chariot or other thing made up of multiple parts, how do you work out what is hit?
Ok, so the centre of the template hits automatically and is randomised as to where it hits, this I get. This is where the stone itself strikes?
Now, is this the only hit since only one model has been hit? or do you assume everything else on the model is seperate parts, and so is partially covered by the template and so would suffer a seperate hit on a 4+?
For example, if you hit an engine of the gods, and the centre is randomised to the stegadon, is this the only thing that takes damage, or would you roll to see if the skinks and skink priest are each hit as well?
Every part of the model is hit automatically.
As you say you randomize for which part is under the hole (i/e S8/10)
I'd love to get a steg like this. Steg being wounded on a 2 for D6 wounds, and loads of little skinks falling down on 2s...
Current painting project: 2300 pts of Dwarfs in 5 weeks.
However being how you can't completely cover the stegadon with the template would you randomize the center of the template and then roll to hit 4+ for each skink/stegadon that didnt get hit by the template?
monstermount rules on page 60:
entirely covering the monster base, all riders + mount are hit,
partially covering the monsterbase, mount and riders hit on 4+
centre hole on the mountbase, randomise the automatic doublestrength hit.
if you apply this to the stegadon, which has a base larger than the whole template,
first you roll to see which part is auto hit with s8,
the rest is partially covered, so is hit on a 4+.
