i have seen that most people have had a little bit of difficulty guessing range, so i have devloped 2 equations to help splatter your foe:
the first is for anything that fires like a cannon:
so what does this algebra mean?
L is the length of the gaming board. if you set up on a standard board long edge to long edge (like in the front of the rulebook) then this will be 48.
D1 is how far your warmachine deployed onto the board. so if it deployed 8" on, D1 is 8.
D2 is how far the opposing unit deployed onto the board. normaly this will be 12. look closley at how your opponent deploys!
M1 is how far your warmachine has moved so far. if it is turn 2, and you moved 0" each turn, then this is 0
M2 is how far your opponent has moved. if it is turn 2 and he has moved 8" a turn, then it is 16.
-6 is to balance out the "extra gunpowder" or the first artillery roll (not the bounce roll!).
so using this forumula and the examples we can see that:
48-(8+12+0+16)-6=18, so you guess 18"
with luck your shot should land on the first or second rank, or just in front. carefull aiming can lead to you killing your opponents character as well!
for stone thowers it is similar, but you miss off the -6, the scatter adds too much unpredictability, and you want it dead on.
so that equation again:
hope you like it.
humm, true. This is yet again proof the Orks are smarter the Elves.
