concentrate your fire on the ennemy!

Postby motorhead fan » Wed Nov 06, 2013 1:42 pm

for those of you who have several heros, i thought of something cool:

lets say you have some guys and a hero, and the hero says concentrate your fire on the infantry(or something) then the soldiers get +1 rolls to hit on the target.


what do you guys think?

Or, we will someday. We don't actually have them updated yet.

So they all take -6 on all their rolls? No wonder they aren't as powerful.

my heros(not Dalek heroes) usually die on a 6 or more happily for every amount of 6 they can role a dice to see if they "trip over" and the bullet flies past

sometimesthey also die on an eight for major heroes

ther usually make about 4D6 dmamage per weapon, sometimes more, it depends if their weapon is something maasivly awesome

If you want to boost you hit%, just use binoculars. Last I checked, you can still get a +1 hit using them, even with the new rules. Not sure if they work with squads, we'll have to wait and see what the new rules say.

Also, why on earth do you have 7 heroes? No wonder a 6 is enough to put them down.

well 2 are spartans so they are more powerful, one a terminator so hes well terminatory all the others are just like minor platoon leaders and all 7 of them serve as bodyguards to the skymarshal with his mega armor

You can probably get away with just using the skymarshal as a traditional hero, and leave the others as buffed standard figs. There's a list of bonus traits floating around the forum somewhere, it's got stuff like damage resistance, CC weapons boosts, immunity to knockback, etc. Your spartans and terminator would be much better off using those traits rather than feats, since your opponent (generally) can't roll to oppose you using a trait, unlike with feats. Use regular officers for the platoon leaders.

This page is probably one of the most useful threads on this forum, and it's the flat-out most useful for when you need to customize your army.

Stat-boosting feats are looked down upon because they promote shitheadedness, so such actions are best left out of heroes hands.

If you go overboard, certainly (I am sadly speaking from personal experience, and not from being on the receiving end). But one or two bonuses handed out to a few units won't make an army over or underpowered, and can add a nice amount of flavor and specialization to the battle.

I don't know why you wouldn't have one hero and some officers. I personally run (now) a hero and then an officer for every squad. Hero's skill is D10, but I don't give them extra damage, just the same as anyone using whatever weapon type it is. The reason being is that the gun doesn't get better depending on who is using it, the hero is just able to use it better than your average minifig. I always give my hero an automatic armor of 10 because I hate rolling too much. Officers I give a D8 skill and armor of 8. My standard unarmored minifigs get a 4 and armored a 5 with an additional +1 if they are carrying a shield. This game is a game of fudge though, that's the beauty of it. You can do whatever the fuck you want.
