View Full Version : impact hits

27-03-2006, 07:03
me and my buddy were playing a couple of days ago, and ran into a rule that we never actually used before...impact hits

we did not know how these work, he guessed that when a unit of knights charge another unit, they take ther unit str (S2 for horses) and do that many hits on the targeting units...so his 10 knights hit my skeletons, and we desided to work it like he did 5 S2 hits...now we know this is wrong, but this is the best we could come up with

is is 5 S2 hits, or what?

reference would be nice

No such rule exists except for chariots & I believe Ogres in certain circumstances.

i own a tomb king army, is it in there, or the BRB?

Impact hits are from Chariots, Ogre Kingdoms ogres with the Bull Charge rule, and anything else that specifically mentions it does impact hits.

For other stuff, Lizardmen Stegadon comes to my mind immediately - but cannot think up much else (besides chariots and ogres) that does impact hits.

Screaming Bell counts as a chariot in its rules.That one I know well. The Screaming Bell does not cause impact hits.

Yeah sorry major but you are wrong the screaming bell DOES cause impact hits it clearly states it in the rule book as mentioned above - but it does make for a poor chariot in context as altho it is quite hard when it rings it can damage the unit its with quite easily and it is a major drain on points in small games as is over 200 pts plus you MUST have a grey seer to use it which is a minimum 235pts so all in all 435pts!!! before other equipment (which you will want) which is a big pain in the butt for any hord army plus it reduces your generals leadership as grey seers are only 6.
