I have a question and I am sorry if it has been asked/answered before but I couldn't find anything.
My Hellcannon had a direct hit on a High Elf Bolt Thrower (2 crew members) who is hit and at what Str?
I think... Roll to wound against the bolt thrower (10 vs 7, 2+), High Elf crew takes saves, D6 wounds. The wounds of a war machine are considered equal to the amount of crew.
Cheerio's got it right. In 8th edition, you no longer randomize hits between a machine and it's crew. It's assumed that the crew hide under/around the machine. You roll to wound against the machine's toughness, and then remove the crew. The crew are essentially just "wounds markers".
Note that this is different from the Hellcannon. Since the Hellcannon counts as a monster, the opponent will roll to wound/save against the Hellcannon, then randomize the hits onto the crew or the monster. In this sense, the crew represent a 5+ Wardsave that can be taken until it is passed 3 times (thereby killing all 3 dwarfs).
