HE and Pins rule clarification

Post by Pauly J - Grimnor » Wed May 21, 2014 4:13 am

Just to clarify the HE pins chart table on page 53 as it seems people are playing with different ideas what the chart means. You don't get one pin for hitting, then extra pins from HE chart. Its just the roll on the chart.

Combining the chart and the first sentence "Hits by weapons with HE value greater the D3 can result in extra pin markers on the target" and "For example, if hit by a shell with an HE value of D6 the target takes D2 pin markers -i.e. roll a dice with the scores of 1,2 or 3 = 1 and scores of 4,5 or 6 = 2."

Hope that makes sense. Just wanted us all to play on the same page.

Useful. I think I played it as 1+ whatever was on the table last time, but as I wiped out the units I hit anyway, didn't matter.

Heavy howitzer for the win. Going to be difficult to not use it in every game.
