    V Cannon help pls

    Hi all, i have been using 1, 2 and even 3 full v cannon squads in a few of my most recent games
    and i love them but they have thrown up a few little problems which you may be able to help with

    as you all know firing three v cannon is easy, you dont need LoS, you just roll three to hit dice, if any of them hit you draw line from any of the v cannon in the squad and every unit hit takes D6 S6 hits AP-.

    well the problems i have are
    1, what if it crosses an IC
    2, what if it crosses a squad of vehicles

    any help anyone ?

    1. The IC gets hit by the cannon. If hes attached to the squad his squad can take the hits instead. That'll teach people not to leave IC's behind their lines unattached.

    2. If it crosses a squad of vehicles (like 3 vypers) then you roll d6 hits as normal. Anything that hits can hurt any vehicle in the squadron. So if you roll 5 glances then thats 5 glancing hits total, damage is applied just like normal shooting rules against em (check the BGB for that).

    Does the V-Cannon also go through cover?

    I'm not sure what you mean. Yes it goes through cover to hit targets in and beyond it.

    However your enemy still gets cover saves against hits from the vibro-cannon (rare since it doesn't have any ap).

    yup, spot on lordlink, it hits every unit along its 36" range, friend or foe, there very under rated.

    I use them a lot because they glance every vehicle they cross automaticaly and D6 hits everytime against squads and a pinning test to boot

    ok rereading it I'm not so confident on my vehicle squadron answer anymore. I'm inclined to believe that its 1 glance for each vehicle and leave it at that. I don't think its d6 glances or 1 glance total.

    yes thats my problem exactly, and as strange as it sounds i was the player saying i only got one hit but my opposition ( ork ) player was saying i got D6, his argument being if you fire lots of weapons at a single vehicle you can only kill it, but if you fire the same weapons at a squad of vehicles you can kill them all, its just a down side to having squads of vehicles, but hey he is an ork player :x

    The Vibro Cannon doesn't follow standard shooting rules. It's special rules over ride the 'Firing at Squadrons' rules in the BGB.

    It's one hit per vehicle under the drawn line, regardless of Squadron or not. Also, the vehicles in the line must take the hits; he can't transfer them off onto a different vehicle in that squadron.
