First time I played a Deamon Player it I had 2 Battlewagons, and a bunch of Kans he blew them all up with no problem. I just think it's dumb that Vehicles can be taken down with one shot, when it takes a several shots to kill an MC.
What the hell did he easily take them down with? Its AV 14, Bolt is Strength 8, and Screamers are unreliable if the vehicle has moved, Soul Grinders are only BS 3 and people rarely take 'Tongue' anyway, so all that leaves is Daemon Princes.

Plus, thinkings its dumb vehicles get killed in one shot doesn't make it so. There are three rolls needed to killa vehicle:

1. Hit it
2. Pentrate it.
3. 5 or 6 on the Chart

Its not that likely in alot of cases. Plus MC's can be killed by anything. Vehicles don't have to worry about standrad weapons like boltguns, lasguns, splinter rifles etc, MC's do. Anything can wound them. Its specialist weapons that take out vehicles.

It could be cinematic Christopher Nolan, or it could be cinematic Michael Bay/Uwe Boller.

The wound chart is likely to turn into fantasy, where you have a soft, rather than hard counter system - you can always wound on a 6.
That part of Fantasy I do not want implemented. The only reason for me to take a Wraithlord nowadays is to walk it into S4 or less squads and go "LOL! U can't scratch me! Now DIE!!!!"

The poor battlewagon is only 10 on the rear and open top to boot. even Bloodletters can wreck it. Pretty sure red paint let them move 7” and act like they move only 6” but requiring 6+ to hit in cc, though.
