Well this army keeps giving my headaches with kp. My problem is with guard command groups as they have a rutine so are they 2 or 1 kp. As goes for infantry platoons, my god i need help on everything XD. Also the ordnance barrage rules for not seeing a target isnt too clear in the rule book so can any one hlep me out with these.Thanks guys for all you help.
Company and platoon commands are not retinues and only give 1 kp. The officers are not independent characters. Every squad in a platoon counts as 1 kp unless infantry squads get grouped together. Ex. If you have 1 platoon command squad and 2 infantry squads, its 3 kp, but if you have the same set up and group the infantry squads, then its 2 kp. Hopefully that clears that up. Im not to sure what you dont understand about ordanance barrage, if can ellaborate i'll try to help.
ordanance barrage has the option of firing directly or indirectly. if you are firing it in directly; you pick your target, place the blast template over it and then roll the scatter dice. if the hit symbol is rolled then the blast template does not move, if and arrow is rolled then it moves in the direction of the arrow N inches, N=the number rolled on the other 2 dice. if you are firing directly then if it hits it is the same result as above but if it scatters then it moves N minus BS in the direction of the arrow.
meaning that the average scatter is reduced from 7 inches to 4 inches...it's up to you whether that's worth allowing the enemy to have LOS to your gun...
