View Full Version : Shooting into CC again...

Yup this subject again. But an idea just occured to me which I didn't see come up in the search. This idea assumes 5th Edition 40K wound allocation :-

Just treat the ongoing assualt as one squad and make the firer assign wounds.

So 5 of A are fighting 5 of B, Player A fires 10 times, obviously he will want to assign wounds to B first, but since it's one squad any more than 5 will go straight to his own troops, so the more troops of A compared to the number of B the more A will suffer from his own firing.



Sorry if it's a dumb idea, but I couldn't resist running it up the flagpole.

I think firing into assaults would work okay if there were more than two players in a game and the assault you were firing into contained none of your models. As the rule is written now, I think that not firing into assaults is probably a good thing because I can just hear the shouts and curses from players who think that the firer's models didn't get hit enough times in relation to the target models.

It could be cool if models IN assault could shoot instead of attacking:

eg. Instead of attacking normally, a model may choose to fire a weapon. The model may not attack in this round at all, but may fire a weapon as if shooting. The enemy cannot claim any cover saves for these attacks. All enemy's hit the firer on a 2+. The firer receives a 6+ invulnerable save representing shots preventing enemies from being able to effectively strike a killing blow*** Firing models count as initiative 1 for sweeping advances.

***Not sure about this one...
