Reclaimers questions

Post by Mawz » Sun Nov 04, 2012 1:37 am

Hey Everyone,

So i really wanna get into Dark Potential and im highly interested in the Reclaimers.

first off i am looking at the starter pack and on the mwg web store it says the starter comes with:
1 Reclaimer Captain, 1 Reclaimer Squad (1 Leader + 3 Grunts), 1 Reclaimer Scout, 1 Reclaimer Missile Launcher

now after looking through the rules i realised which units are what i would just appreciate mwg to use the proper names it may help newer people out in the future ya know.

second for the reclaimers i wanted to use a targeting scanner kinda strategy however in the Targeting special rule i notice it says... when a unit is hit by a weapon with the targeting special rule...and no where can i find where it clearly explains how to test for "HIT" and let alone it must be terribly hard to hit someone with a weapon that has 0 str...? typo maybe?

idk if these have been clarified or not so hopefully someone can point me in the right direction...

Thank you all for your time.

I think on the Targeting question you're confusing "damage" with "hit" - as long as you generate one or more hits with the Margin of Success of the attack roll, the targeting scanner has hit its target.

"Hitting" is when you roll against distance, cover, and defense with the range of the weapon and the "ranged attack" attribute. "Wounding" is when you roll against armor with the strength of the weapon. All of which is under "Ranged Attacks" in the current rules.
