Situation:
Model BS2 Sister of Sigmar Novice with a sling. normally hits on a 5+.
hitting over half distance (-1) cover (-1) Two shots (-1) Female (-1)

are there rules to govern these situations?

would hitting on a 7,8,9 be an impossible shot? or is there a correct way to represent the odds?

Note that this rule is not mentioned in the Mordheim rulebook though so it actually does not exist. If any of you want to use it, make sure you agree on it before the campaign/next game to avoid discussions.

Yes, in Mordheim you just can't hit under those circumstances. I think this is a good thing, though it does mean that BS2 models are often not worth arming with missile weapons.

Unless they are armed with totally underpriced slings, of course!

I don't think so, because I do think that ranged combat is a bit weak in Mordheim with all the scenery and hiding. Feel free to disagree with me. Smile

Whatever it was, it was not funny and I strongly suggest to cut that type of stuff out.

Much apologies Cianty, and I do believe Sister Sister was joking.

Sorry, it won't happen again, I was not meaning to offend anyone.

Cianty builds/paints twice as much scenery as anyone else! When I eventually get out to his neck of the woods I have already resigned to leaving my shooters at home. Wink

Cianty is quite right in saying that ranged combat in Mordheim is limited at the best of times. Shooting is excellent by comparison on a flat 'Empire in Flames' style gaming table where a cyclone has blown all the straw huts & vegetation flat to the ground.

These kind of boards tend to be dull and boring to fight battles over, unless you're a Warhammer player. Wink

Regards,

Werekin.

Wow, thin skins around here or what? I think it would take the least reasonable person in the world to think he actually meant that in any seriousness.

Play nice kids - we don't want to lose our reputation as the friendliest forum ever! Very Happy

On topic: even on our quite scenery-heavy boards shooting is still pretty dominant, when combined with sacrificial "march blockers" to slow the enemy's approach. We do use "hit on a 7+" as a house rule though.

We have had some trouble with trolls in the past, so it is only normal that the mods are vigilant. What may seem like a short fuse, is in fact the effort to keep the forum a nice place. In addition, we do have female members, and so sexist allusions - funny or not, serious or not - may be offensive to them. Cianty merely enforced the forum rules.

Thank you for your understanding!

it might be meant as a joke, but I don't think sexist jokes are appreciated here, nor are jokes based on race, culture or country. I know Cianty, and he's far from 'thin skinned', he was just doing his job as a moderator.

and now, back on topic.

EDIT: Damn, Tom beat me to it Razz

I had to go reread the book as I thought it was there but it is in Warhammer Fantasy and Necromunda.

We have "house ruled" it into our games but I usually forget about it.

This should be a bumper sticker, to go right alongside "Be nice to nerds, chances are you'll end up working for one."
