Is 6 the max value of a die or can it go over 6?

Thunder Hammer Sergeant rolls a 6 in melee against a Genestealer who rolls 5,5 and 6. Does he tie or kill the Genestealer?

Thunder Hammer Sergeant rolls a 6 in melee against a Broodlord who rolls 2,3 and 4. Does he tie or kill the Broodlord?

Thunder Hammer Sergeant rolls a 6 in melee against a Broodlord who rolls 2,5 and 5. Does he tie or kill the Broodlord?



Does a Space Marine have LOS on Genestealer when he is facing a wall and there is a Genestealer on his NorthEast or 1 o'clock / 2 o'clock position?

How appropriate. You fight like a cow.

Die values can go over 6. Remember that all bonuses only apply to attacks on the Marine's front (except the Guard re-roll, that applies no matter the direction of attack).

I think in your second question you're showing a 2 square wide corridor with a Genestealer right next to a Marine. If that's the case, the Marine cannot see the Genestealer (the squares to the immediate right and left of a Marine are out of LOS -- bad peripheral vision I guess).

No sorry, my ASCII messed up.

Here is what it should've been:

Unless he uses his Sensorium to look through the eyes of a near-by battle brother...

Got to love the systems embedded in Tactical Dreadnought Armour.

Yes, he has a 45 degree LOS to either side of straight ahead.


Thunder Hammer vs GS/Broodlord: The GS/Broodlord would only roll 2 dice...
