Now we're waiting for an Update to the FAQ for an addition to our list that came out in a White Dwarf but easily could have been just added to a FAQ in the first place?
Pardon the snark, but I was originally a WE player, so I guess I thrive on disappointment from a model company that also publishes rules so we buy more models to play our little army games.
Nice to hear they are going to BS 5 though (someday),
So at short range (1" to 9") we hit:
3's (Base 2 -1 for multiple shots) if No moving
4's (Base 2- 1 multiple shots, and -1 moving)
5's (Base 2- 1 multiple shots, -1 moving, -1 vs. skirmishers OR Soft cover)
6's (Base 2- 1 multiple shots, -1 moving, -1 vs. skirmishers AND Soft cover OR -2 vs. Hard cover)
So at long range (10"-18") we hit:
4's (Base 2 -1 for multiple shots, -1 Long range) if No moving
5's (Base 2- 1 multiple shots, -1 Long range, and -1 moving)
6's (Base 2- 1 multiple shots, -1 Long range, -1 moving, -1 skirmishers OR Soft cover)
(I'd probably take those chances to wipe out a character vs. the chances of a look out sir... Maybe, that's a whole new set of calculations to figure out though.)
AND an extra 1 in 6 chance of giving the Enemy unit a 6+ Regeneration! Yay!
Which I can live with, it's funny and could make for an epic moment in a game, certainly more interesting.
