The WSO only adds his bonus to the Target Lock for attempting to gain Target Lock. Only the actual modifier listed on the Data Card adds to the RAV.


The other modifiers, for example the +1 for being within 12" and being stationary, for TL also only apply to the TL roll and not the RAV modifier.

We played our first CAV battles, after being demoed at Reapercon, last night. The Rhino is a frightening thing to behold, and the Dictators have a lot of firepower, but are vulnerable. What suprised me was the firepower/points ratio of the Stiletto and the toughness of the Hunter tanks.

I believe the way it is worded (not sure as I dont have my book) is that the WIZZO adds his mods to the Target Lock ROLL. Not to the target lock itself. The actual target lock number is then added to the weapons damage if a target lock is achieved.

Definately Jer. Good quoting :o)


Steven, the Hunter isn't a bad tank by any means, but there are other MBT's which put it to shame somewhat. Might I suggest you look at the Naginata or even the Despot? :o)


The Stilletto is a crafty little blighter, but I've only fielded it's brother the Sabre so I haven't fully checked it out yet :o)


Dictators, as in the stock poster Dictator, is only possessing of average armour (+2) as standard. This means that it goes down a little easier than something with the above average +3... and against a Rhino, use terrain and range to your advantage else you get a white hot poker where the sun don't shine....


..that hurts :o)

If you haven't had experience with tanks, any 3 armor, 4 DT tank is going to look tough. Look at the cheapest 3 armor CAV (Tyrant, Knight, ewwww, then the Starhawk at 307 points). Compared to a CAV, a Hunter is cheap toughness. Compared to a better tank tho, it doesn't look so good.


The Stiletto is the cheapest +5 vs hard gun in the game. A bit slow, but a nasty stinger. Hmmmm. Stiletto gun on a Sabre chassis... still only 97 points... hmmmmm.
