Hi, I'm very new to WHFB, and I was wondering if someone could please help me with a clarification of the rules for a mortar Vs especially Chariots. My friend and I are still playing with the start set of Empire & Orcs/gobbos. We never found a satisfying answer and so made up a house rule that a direct mortar-hit on a chariot is an auto-kill, denying armour saves. It seems quite fair as a direct hit without scattering is kind of difficult, but I was wondering if there is another way to resolve it. If this is a violation of the forum rules I'm sorry, but this is something I need to know. :hmm:
You need a strength 7 hit to shatter chariots in one go. Sorry, I can't give a page number right now.
And a mortar under the hole is only strenght 6 I believe, so no it does not kill it.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, even if it's wrong.
If you manage to hit the chariot smack-on with your mortar, then you follow normal procedure. You try to wound it, he does not get an armour save, and you do d3 wounds if you wound him.
If you hit it, but not spot-on, then you try to wound with your strength 3, he gets a save with -1, but I'm not sure if you still do d3 wounds.
I kill two dwarves in the morning, I kill two dwarves at night. I kill two dwarves in the afternoon, and then I feel allright. I kill two dwarves in time of peace, and two in time of war. I kill two dwarves before I kill two dwarves, and then I kill two more.

Thanks for the help. Seems now I have to find another tactic to beat that ")"/#(&&# chariot...
You could conver the mortar to a cannon which will auto kill the chariot. I realized that i liked the cannon better so i converted it and i thought it was much better.
Be careful when/if you convert it because i hacked my mortar to peices and the cannon i got out of it looked like crap.

I'll try to do that, or just use the mortar-model as a cannon. My friend and I are still newbies, so we're not that precise about looks on the models yet.
