Re: Satellat rules question

Almost right on the first bit. A satellat takes its actions at the same time as its owner, so if the owner is eliminated then the satellat cannot take any further actions. However it still automatically goes onto alert status every turn so it can still make reactions (an unlimited number since it wo...

Re: Rules Question: Grenades...

Grenades don't scatter and you don't really miss the target. Roll agility for everyone in range of the blast versus the shoot score of the attacker, you can wind up missing the target model but hitting someone else.

Re: Basing for larger miniatures

The only real issue I can think of is that more models can get into melee with you. So if you're facing something like a zombie horde you'll get even more swamped than usual. I can't see any mechanical advantage to larger bases so I'd be inclined to allow it. Personally I like large models on small ...

Re: Army Builder

I cant seem to buy equipment for my grand Warlock above and beyond what he is allowed at the start of a campaign. I cant spend more on equipment then his initial Starting credits regardless of how many games I play. I've been trying to get some clarity on this one - the common response seems to be ...

Re: Getting back to jdmg?

The new rules are fundamentally very similar to the first version, but there's a lot of minor changes that add up to a much tighter ruleset. Talent trees have been reorganised with a bunch of new talents and others that have been adjusted. It's hard to summarise as a lot has been tweaked.

Re: Using Mobs in melee

That's a very extreme example, the 48 damage you quote assumes that every one of the mob's melee dice scores higher than Dredd's highest which seems unlikely. That said though, it seems to represent the reality of the comics fairly well. Anybody can get dragged down and swarmed by sheer weight of nu...

Re: Using Mobs in melee

You're completely correct in how you interpreted it. You move all the models in the mob simultaneously, then fight melee with each one in turn (with all the bonuses that entails). I've had this confirmed directly by Matt. And yes, this means they can be absolutely lethal.

Re: Using Mobs in melee

1: Assuming the models are on the same sized bases, you can get 6 models into melee with one target. Note that although you can only get the bonus for charging if you move in a straight line, you do not have to charge when entering melee. So long as you can reach the target it doesn't matter if you ...

Re: Blood on the Streets Questions

You are playing it right, it is that good. Couple of things to bear in mind though. A Psi-Judge has to be at least level 4 in order to use this power (assuming they don't put talents into anything apart from the Pyrokine tree) which hopefully means that the opposition is a similar level and the hero...

Re: heroe judges and lawmasters??

Any model fielded as part of a Justice Department force can ride a Lawmaster (except a riot judge). This would include Dredd. The rules for this are in the vehicles section, rather than being reproduced for every individual applicable hero and minion.

Re: heroes (and villains) talents

The additional hit is already included in Dredd's stats, as a level 20 hero he would normally have 21 hits and Academy Star takes it to 22. The same should apply to any other talent that increases stats.

Judge with Dual Lawgivers MK1s, +2 shoot, Dual Shooter, Voice of Command Can you use both your initial points on the same stat? No, you can't. Your initial upgrades have to be on different stats.

Re: Blood on the Streets Questions

Yes, cybernetics count towards the total cost of the model. And yes, they're damned expensive. But bear in mind that cybernetic limbs can effectively ignore any further injuries as well so they are worth it. The second roll with confession mode is an opposed roll, it's just like a regular attack rol...

Re: Blood on the Streets Questions

He has to target a specific model with his shoot action and you add 1 to his total for every shoot action he takes, so a maximum of +2 per turn. He can't point his camera everywhere at once.
