Just a quick question: Does the RBT reduce armor saves by a total of -3 or -2 when firing multiple shots?
Warhammer Fantasy: Warriors of Chaos, High Elves
Warhammer 40k: Eldar, Space Marines, Orks
when fired Single shot (monster killer) its S6 D3 Wounds so thats -3 Save
when it is fired Volley/Multi shot its 6 S4 shots witha -2 Save penatly
so Vs monsters its -3
Vs infantry its -2
as most of the time its better to have 6 shots than one shot getting weaker per rank
Example, Single Shot rank 1 S6 -3 save, Rank 2 S5 -2 Save, rank 3 S4 -1 Save, rank 4 S3, Rank 5 S2 Rank6+ S1 failing to move to the next rank etc ont he First failed wound Odds are you will hit 2-3 models
6 shots hitting average 4 times S4 woundng avergae Vs most standard infantry T3/4 2-3 wounds with -2 save.
Now Vs monstrus Infantry liek ogres it might still be betetr to fire the Single shot as it cuas's D3 wounds and can therefore kill one out right Maybe?!
There is no armour save at all when firing single shot per bolt thrower rules.
For multishot, it's -2; just as written. The -2 takes into account the S4 and armour piercing I guess (I know it doesn't say armour piercing, but that's how I rationalize the -2). But since it explicitly states -2, then I would not add any more.
