This came up last night and we had no idea how to handle it.
The abyssal staff is a template weapon that is Str8 but uses the opponent's Ld rather than T.
The cryptek fired it at an artillery battery and it covered a weapon plus two crewmen behind. The weapon was the closest model.
Artillery pieces have no Ld value - they are just T7 Av 3 W2. The weapon wounded 1 crew member but we had no idea how to decide whether it could roll to wound the artillery piece.
- Treat the Ld '-' as Ld 0? (in which case the staff would inflict instant death on the piece)?
- Treat it as a vehicle and say it is immune to the staff?
- Assign it the Ld of the crewmen?
Also (and regardless of the above), assuming that I had done 2 wounds on the unit thanks to wounding the 2 crewmen, would I have removed the artillery piece as it was the closest model?
