    Bolt Throwers question.

    I'm a new Dark Elf player and at work (no rulebooks with me).

    The Reaper Bolt Thrower shoots in 2 ways.

    1st is a Single bolt that pierces ranks with a starting STR of 5.

    and

    2nd is the multiple shots of 4? or 3? bolts at STR 4?? (This is the one I'm unsure of)

    Thanks for the help!

    Its 6 bolts at strength 4 with a -2 armour save modifier. However the multiple shots don't penetrate ranks.

    What STR is the single bolt? I may have misread the rules.

    STR 5? or STR 7?

    I know it does D3 wounds on multiple wound creatures.

    The single bolt has a Strength of 6 and penetrates ranks.
    Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
    NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
    Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
    Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD
