Bloody Barons / Rule Updates on the Peter Pig site
« on: May 06, 2018, 03:36:52 AM »
I would like to say that I fully support Barry Slemmings' suggestion re Archers shooting from rear ranks. I am not as well read on the period as Barry obviously is, but I had been thinking along very similar lines myself already. 

I particularly like the idea of giving units the chance to exchange ranks instead of opportunity shooting when charged.

I take his point about 'all-Household' units, but think it might complicate the game to follow this. You would also need to be very careful about always identifying which bases in any given unit were the Household ones. I can imagine them frequently being overlooked.  You would also need to change the morale modifiers to cover 'units with Household bases included' rather than just -1D6 for Household units.

Bloody Barons / Artillery shooting - simple question

Rule 26.8 Artillery
"Artillery is dealt with differently than other distant weapons such as bows and handguns..."
Second bullet point "Any scores of 6 indicate an immediate kill..."

I read this as meaning ONLY rolls of 6 cause any hits and are immediate kills without saving throws (apart from the listed base types in the third bullet), but my regular gaming buddy reads it as meaning hits as per other shooting rules, but 5 has all the usual saving throws, while 6 is an immediate kill, with the listed exceptions.

Which reading is the intended rule?
