this is just something i though would be neat. tell me what you think.
Ricochet Rifle Can be taken by a Master Engineer for XptsS4, 24 in range, Armor piercing
If a wound is suffered, before armor saves, the dwarf player rolls on the modified enemy armor save. If the save is ‘passed’ (ie. 2+ armor save, minus 2 becomes a 4+ and the dwarf player rolls a 5) the shot bounces of the enemy and hits another enemy, if that shot wounds, the dwarf player rolls to wound and on the same chart until the shot doesn’t wound. Once the shot fails to cause a wound, the enemy player may take armor saves for all wounded models.

I can't say i like it. Just on the complexcity of it alone puts me off. The asumption alone that the shot will hit another enemy in the unit makes it unworkable as an idea, and the mechanics wise its realy time consuming. The richocet rifle takes away from one of the dwarfs bonuses with handguns (+1 to hit), as after the first hit its ricochets auto hit.
We would be better of with something akin to the empire repeat hanguns. 24", 3 shots at S4 and armour piercing, now add the dwarfs +1 to hit and its better all round.
It was a good idea though and alot more imagenative than some of the recent stuff GW has pushed out recently.
I'd rather see a one use grenade launcher, like the kind where you strap it to the end of the gun and fire it that way. A Dwarf sniper rifle like the hochland would also be deserving of consideration, (as long as you could still use the engineers abilities even fireing the weapon,) especialy as the hochland can target a differnt unit to the unit its in. So you could fire your cannon/bolt thrower/etc at a unit then snipe a seperate wizard or somthing with the engineer.
Once again nice try though. Keep the ideas coming.
@ Saltrock: Master engineers ( or engineers ) can't fire personal weaponry and assist in firing the warmachine at the same time. It's either one or the other. But if the master engineer fires his handgun, pistols, sniperrifle, ricochet rifle etc. then the crew can still fire the warmachine by themselves, just not with the ME's experience in targetting or wounding.
I realise this hence the use of "even whislt firing the weapon". Thats the change i would like to see, to be able to use both a personal ranged weapon and still pass on his abilities, its why i mentioned it in particular. Sort of a glance over his shoulder and a thumbs up to the crew to represent that these Dwarfs have been doing this routine over decades and need only the most minor of adjustments. Would certainly make Engineers worth thier salt over other Dwarf Heroes to choose from.
