Can someone tell to me the number of attack dice to roll please. As far as I can see in the rules one rolls 3 10 sided and 1 6 sided dice but on one of the u-tube reviews they roll 1 of each.
The d10 is the attack dice (1 to 6+ depending on weapon, cards etc) owhich is/are rolled when a soldier attacks.
When the soldier attacks a d6 defeat cover dice is also rolled (only ever 1d6).
If the attack dice (d10) after modifiers is equal or greater than the Weapon's Hit number and the defeat cover dice (d6) after modifiers is equal or greater than the Targets Cover Value then:
If a soldier is attacking an EKIA is placed on a hostile
If a hostile is attack then consult the Hostiles attack chart for the effect on the soldier targeted - or all soldiers for some hostiles.
However if either the d10 or d6 isn't high enough only a SUPP is placed.
If Both aren't high enough the attack has no effect.
Note: While PS & NPS soldiers can roll more than 1d10 depending on weapons etc. SQS and Hostiles only ever roll 1d10.
Does that clear things up?
ps. If using multiple d10 - only Spray and Explosive can do more than 1 EKIA/SUPP.
