Hi Warseer,

Simple question.

How does firing against warmachines work now?

i.e. my Glade Guard shoot at an Empire Cannon/Bolt Thrower/Stone Thrower etc etc etc

How do I kill it/ wound it?

The 'warmachine' is T7 and you don't randomize anymore if I understand...my bows are S3

...might be a dumb question, apologize if it is.

Kind of summarizing here, but:

- Shooting hits toughness of Warmachine
- Warmachine has wounds equal to number of crew

To answer the question I think you meant, in 8th you can wound anything on a 6, so even S3 shooting can wound warmachines.

Dokushin....Thank you very much.

I haven't had much time with the new book.

It's actually the Warmachine uses the T and W of the machine's profile (usually T7 and W3) but in close combat you use the T of the crew.

Warmachines still automatically fail initiative tests, not sure about other characteristics.
