Wounds from bolt throwers/Amber Spear

Postby memnon » 10 Jun 2011, 14:18

When a bolt thrower inflicts multiple wounds,these wounds are inflicted exclusively to the model that is hit or distributed to the models of the rank?
For example,when the amber spear(see Lore of Beasts pg.493) hits a rank of single-wounded models,if it wounds,will it be 3 models dead or just 1?

Only one thing - it can cause wounds up to your max profile wounds. So say the BT hits 2 of your Treekins, an´d one of them is sitting on 1 wound, another on 3. He will wound and roll 2 for No of wounds - that will cause on treekin dead and another on 2 wounds.

In another words, it can not cause more wounds that you have as your max, but the caused wounds can transfer.

Wait, I don't get this, how can Treekin have models at different wound levels? It should just be dead models and fully alive ones with the last model having a certain number of wounds left, no? So a Bolt Thrower hit that doesn't kill the first model wouldn't bounce to the second model to wound it. If it kills the first, wouldn't you also roll to wound the second model, since it's a lower Strength for the 2nd rank? Then roll how many wounds again...

But yes, I agree that it can only do a maximum of the Wounds profile for each model it hits.
Well, my ideas for the next book turned out to be a bust.
But it was still fun working on something of this scale.

Cause I typoed and wrote 2 instead of 3 :cry:
Thx, it is OK now in the original post

They may be in 1 rank, and BT in their forward arc, so it will roll only once.
