yea pretty much what the title says.

I could not care less for the ingame effect of this rule. Cause i dont realy care for the faith of my boys (except maby for the warboss cause that be me).

But lets just look at how this rule works

normal ld works like this

1) take more then 25% causulties

2) take a test

3) if fail run back 2d6 if pass nothing happens

the mob rule works like this

1) take more then 25% causulties

2) take a test

3) if fail run back roll a d6 if pass nothing happens.

4) consult the chart if 1 run if not in combat if not 1 check a effect

5) roll a d6 and get random hits

6) distribute the hits ranomly on the sqaud.

Now lets look at worse case senario

You have a units of 30 boys whit 3 special weapons a nob, a warboos and a mek whit a force field

What can happen next is going to blow your mind

you take 9 causulties

so you take the ld test and fail (not much chance of that but ok it happens)

you roll a 6 so its a squabble

you take 6 s4 hits and 6 wounds

now comes the fun part

at this point you have 1 warboss 1 big mek 1 nob 3 special weapons and 17 boys. So you have a 1/23 chance for anny of the characters a 3/23 for the weapons and a 17/23 chance to hit a boy.

But wait it does not say that thits ignore save and some of the boys are whitin 6 inches of the mek and some are not so you have to ranomize between them

And then you find out that the rule books says you need to randomize afther every wound. So for each of the 6 wounds the ods on hitting a specific model will be diffrend AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH.

But no biggie you work it out and get it done. and you'r glad it only took you 15 min to work out all the 6 hits.

So basicly if you want to play perfectly whitin the rules. The mob rule changes a 30 second event whit only 2 outcomes ( you stay or you go) into 15 minutes of mathproblems whit hundrets of differnd posible outcomes. (since anny combination of models in the unit could take a wound )

WTF GW.

I know you think your catering to the smarter parts of the worlds population but this **** is over the top.

Also rembere depending of what is left of a unit its going to be diffrend every singel time.
