Re: Bunker Banter [OOC]

A good plan other than disengaging is a full action that only allows a half move.  Suppressing will have to come from another

Re: Bunker Banter [OOC]

Well like I said, he's already factored in the -20 for melee shooting. There's really nothing wrong with making your opponent take a WP test or lose a half action so that better melee fighters can gang up. I totally envision that. But it is a tough call on when to do it because of the whole cone AoE and the fact you can't choose to voluntarily fail the roll, so you might hit allies if you're not careful.

In reply to Adeptus Custodes (msg # 977):

Yeah, like i said was rushing to get a post in and didn't realise the others had tossed enough dakka to kill the other mobs. It mostly immaterial so I'm worried about the result.  But if I aimed between the two, they would be in the 45 degree arc I would imagine.  It just has to graze to affect right?

Re: Bunker Banter [OOC]

Any successes beyond the first would be randomly allocated between the second hormagaunt and your comrade. :/

Going to bed after long drives in these snowy conditions. Didn't slide through any intersections but saw some people having trouble, and one car on the news upside down after I passed that side road. Off tomorrow so will be up [relatively] early to post for you guys.

Alright, who wants one of their Horms shot at for a Pinning test and probably some decent softening?

Yes, thanks. It's the western new York area around buffalo, but I was north of Syracuse for the day and had to beat the lake storms back home. Always a bit of a nail-biter in the winter. ;)

Remember that if you're firing into melee with the Target Selection talent you can use your other half action to completely avoid any chance of hitting your allies by taking the Aim [half]action.

However, Suppressing Fire is a full-round action itself, so if you want to do more than hit the enemy you have to use the 45 degree cone AoE and randomly allocate the hits within the cone. :/

Re: Bunker Banter [OOC]

Not with my Hail of Fire Comrade action. Everything I fire at when Semi-Auto period makes a Pinning test.

EDIT: Oh boy, I'm loving that I can fully utilize Ramirez as he was meant to be used. The dank rolls help ;) Having a lot of fun, AC!

Re: Bunker Banter [OOC]

Niice.  I would recommend upping the power on your lasgun to overload, which gives it an effective +4 dam (+2 dam and +2 Pen), which helps A LOT vs everything.  With your to-hit numbers as good as they are, going Unreliable isn't going to hurt that much.

Noted and edited. If the stats for Hormagaunts from Deathwatch are being used, that's Critical Damage on the Left Arm for both of Zilch's Horms.

Failing the mission because you didn't have fire discipline.

Re: Bunker Banter [OOC]

From a tactical standpoint, we're burning wounds every round we're sitting here, a bit of overkill might be just the thing to get us moving again.  Otherwise I agree, fire discipline is a great thing to have.




Theological question: is it still heresy if we're dead?  I mean, our immortal souls would have already been claimed by that point (I think; the fluff on souls has been inconsistent, at best) and the mission failure technically doesn't occur until after, so....

Re: Bunker Banter [OOC]

Yup because our genetic material will be used in the next generation of the Hive which makes it aiding the enemy and heresy after the fact, as well as failure to follow the precepts of the uplifting primer and manual making it a heresy beforehand.

No way to argue it away Two-bit.  ;-)

Re: Bunker Banter [OOC]

I'm still only on my first clip and I still have 3 more. So does Emilia. Then there's the metric asston of grenades we have. I think I'll be armed to the teeth until Ramirez's death.

Re: Bunker Banter [OOC]

It was certainly the first time I've ever rolled that poorly. But I think Two-bit has been having serious trouble with the dice roller for the past three turns or so.

Also, All Guardsmen Party is great and awesome!

Re: Bunker Banter [OOC]

I mean, if you think about it... Ramirez hasn't been touched in melee at all this combat and nobody has been shooting at him but he's been shitting out grenades and lasfire like he ate an extra spicy Ministorum Warehouse burrito.
