Hey guys,

I'm setting up an pirate warband and stumbled upon some "interpretable" rules regarding swivel guns.

Here's the problem:

Quote :
[...]Swivel Guns may never be fired twice per turn, or fired if the user moved, no matter what Skills the user may have.

So by explicitly prohibiting move & fire (meaing "Nimble" skill) and shooting twice (however that would work), does it implicit allow to shot once per turn (meaning "Hunter" skill) instead of every other due to prepare shot? Is there an errata other that this for pirates?

Second question, properbly quite the easy one (and no swivel at all, but what ever):

Quote :
Succession: If the Captain is killed, one of the Mates will take over in the same manner as a Champion taking over for a Mercenary warband.

Where do i find that Mercenary warband rule? Couldn't find it. Maybe too obvious :/

Regards,
Alr(rrrr)ik

Hi Alrik,

The Hunter skill won't be relevant for swivel guns in any case since the skill does specifically say that it works for handguns and long rifles only.

And I don't know what's up with the way they wrote that about champions in mercenary warbands. You might say that one of the champions should be taking over in case the captain whiffs it but there's nothing in the original rules to enforce it. I'd say it makes even more sense for pirates though so I suggest that when the time comes for the captain to die the first mate with the highest LD becomes the new leader. If there's no first mate around then the position is up for grabs.

My guess was that the Hunter skill was not limited to Handgunns and Longrifels at the time the Pirate Warband was written. Maybe excluding the Hunter skill was what they intended by prohibiting to shoot twice per turn. Kinda weird writing here...

Welcome to the forum!

That is correct. The Pirate warband was written before the '05 Rules Review. Quick shot used to be worded so that any missile weapon could fire twice per turn which caused all kinds of silly.

The Pirate warband is unofficial. There are good reasons for this, being poorly written is one of them. (Though as several folks have pointed out to me, bad writing is the hallmark of Mordheim and GW in general).
