    Newb Question: How to play "do Dx Strength x hits(/attacks)"?

    I wanted to ask a technical question about casting the Pink Horror Fireball and Flamers Flames of Tzeentch:

    the attack description would say something along the lines of: "do d6 Strength 4 attacks/hits." What does that mean, exactly?! Do I have to roll a D6 in order to determine how many hits?

    ie: 3 Flamers decide to shoot at Cold One Knights. Now, must I then roll 3d6 to determine how many shot attempts/hit attempts will be made? could I theoretically attempt 18xFlames of Tz attacks?

    How about the case with the fireball, do I roll a d6 for each powerdice used in order to determine how many hits I attempt? Sorry for the newb question, but I need to know.

    Thanks for your help!

    With flamers you are correct, you roll a Dice for every flamer that shoots and add the score, thats how many shots you get, so3 flamers can get up to 18 shots.

    Fireball works differently, it is a spell from the magic phase.
    Nominate one pink horror who will be casting the spell, then you use the powerdice, only to see if the spell gets through. after that you throw 1 dice to see how many hits you will have
