Cannon's multiple wounds, does anyone know how many wounds a cannon does? Did this come up at all last weekend? Just wondering because Dwarves vs WoC yesterday we could only find that it said "Multiple Wounds (ordnance)" and we couldnt find anywhere it says what ORDNANCE actually means... not in the Dwarf Rule Book or the General Rule Book.

In the list of special rules section under Multiple Wounds:

"If (Ordnance) is stated as the value in brackets, this normally counts as Multiple Wounds (D3+1), but against targets
with the Fly special rule this is increased to Multiple Wounds (D3+2)."

Hrm... well there you go, Thanks Nathan, we played it as D6 wounds, but his hellcannon still took 2 shots as i rolled my multi wound as 1 and a 4 to. so it would have died anyway so i dont feel SOOO bad.

Was just playing around making lists and I noticed something neat, Griffons and Hippogriffs are monstrous beasts meaning when they are ridden they become monstrous cavalry not ridden monsters. This is huge and I will for sure be fielding a griffon-riding elf in the near future.

Fear: yes, any unit in base contact with a unit or model causing fear is at -1 leadership.

Lethal Strike: Yes, any model can be wounded by a lethal strike. Interestingly, one of the Kingdom of Equitaine (Bretonnia) virtues adds multiple wounds (ordinance) to that lethal strike essentially giving the character heroic killing blow.

Awesome so i have been doing fear correct. You guys see anywhere that Terror still causes Fear to units that have Fear?

Awesomeness, a chimera went down hard yesterday to Lethal Strike and it just felt... wrong to me.

Ha that definitely sounds like a Bret thing, and Black Knights (Barrow Knights) do the same thing now, Lethal Strikes have Multi Wound (2) it looks like... im assuming it still only does one wound to rank and file and stuff?

The Kingdom of Equitaine virtue gives the character lethal strike with multiple wounds (ordinance) without specifying a model type for the multiple wounds.  Therefore, if any model suffered a lethal strike and it had more than 1 wound the multiple wounds would apply.  If the model had only 1 wound then the wounds would not multiply.  It works in the same way that the multiple wounds rule has worked for the past several editions of Warhammer.

And you say the Chimera died to lethal strike?  Lethal strike normally does 1 wound with armour piercing (6) and no regeneration.  A Chimera has 4 (or 5) wounds so unless you did 4 (or 5) lethal strike wounds it shouldn't have died.  Your barrow knights have multiple wounds (2, infantry, war beast, cavalry) so any lethal strikes they got against the chimera would not be multiplied since it is a monster.

Edit: One other rule that I noticed, if you have a unit armed with anything other than hand weapons you can't elect to use hand weapons in combat unless you have the weapons master rule. That means if your great-weapon/spear/halberd wielding infantry get charged you couldn't elect to use hand weapons and shields in order to get parry. You need to make that decision when you're making your army list.

Yup 100% the Chimera died to Lethal Strike i got 4 x 6's to wound and one 5 to wound and he failed the 6+/4+ save on the 5 to wound and the other 4 x 6's got through unhindered = 5 wounds

Aye Barrow Knights going against Chaos Warriors i knew they didnt have Multi Wound, just thought it was interesting and useful if it ever comes into play.

@ your Edit, yes i know this and we have been playing this way. Really like this, cant wait to see the units that can do this. Temple Guard with the Weapon Master upgrade make that a very versatile unit, 3+ AS, str 4 and Parry. or 4+ AS, str 5. with Halberds or HW+S

Bob I will assume by Ward Breaker you mean Divine attacks as that is what Mark of Change can bestow if you choose it. Divine Attacks is Successful Ward Saves taken against attacks with this special rule, or against Close Combat Attacks made by model parts with this special rule must be rerolled. And that is right from the rules so Very Happy
