First off, I love this game. However, I have a question that I can't seem to resolve. The Eldar event card "Vicious Raids" reads:

"While resolving an orbital strike, you may discard this card to reroll any of your dice and then gain 1 Gun Die, 1 Shield Die, or 1 Morale Die."

Is there some reason to choose the shield or morale dice? From everything I read in the instructions, orbital strikes only benefit from gun dice, so why even offer the option to choose the other types? Am I missing something obvious here?

But then I read this in the "Learn to Play" instructions in reference to routed units on page 7:

"It also cannot contribute its dice or morale during a combat or orbital strike."

Why would a unit need to contribute morale in an orbital strike? I can't come up with an answer!

It synchronises very well with the Eldar order upgrade, Tactical Strike.



Also a shield may be vital inorder to trigger Strafing Run.

Ah, that explains why I couldn't find anything in the instructions on that! Thanks!
