To the Deck / Area weapons

PostSat Feb 04, 2017 7:14 am

Hi guys,

Probably a stupid question, but when you have StarSprite drones moving as a group, does each one do the On The Deck roll separately, or as a group? We've been playing as separately as they're all individual aircraft - is that right?

Bonus question - Template weapons need to be aimed at a specific target, is that correct? e.g. can't just aim at a point on the ground?

Cheers,

Gordon

For the template weapons, that's correct. For OTD I don't know. I'd guess at seperately, but have no idea

Having guessed, Pg43 (1.1) is the relevant page. I would say the wording suggests per aircraft (ie seperately).

We always play it "per aircraft"

Yes, you need to be aiming at an enemy unit.

On the other hand, the centre of the template just needs to be somewhere on the target's hull (not just the centre of the target). So you get a bit of flexibility in terms of who/what you want else you want to catch in the blast.
