Angle of fire for Artillery ?

Postby Tarriel » Mon Jan 08, 2018 4:28 pm

Was or is there a max angle of fire for artillery, I mean from front of base. all shooting says is establish line of site. Seems a bit good for a cannon to fire virtually 180 degrees frontage?.

was here any errata or ammendments for this

Thanks

All ranged R&F use a 90 degree cone of fire iirc.

I thought this 90 degree arc was true as well, but I can't actually find the rule...

Just checked and it isn't. We always assumed a 90 degree fire arc it seems. We also always measure from the middle of the front rank of the firing unit, not the nearest figure.

It's in the Italian version of the basic rules:

"LINEA DI VISUALE E COPERTURA
(modifica che era stata apportata con il regolamento di torneo della Stratelibri)
 Una Unità ha Linea di Vista su un possibile bersaglio se questo si trova entro un arco di 90° in
posizione frontale rispetto a detta Unità.
 Un Personaggio Individuale ha linea di vista su un possibile bersaglio se questo si trova entro
un arco di 180° in posizione frontale o laterale rispetto a detto Personaggio.
 Per le Unità formate da Personaggi Individuali si applica la regola stabilita per le Unità. "

Units and groups of individuals have a 90 degree arc, individuals have a 180 arc.

The note is that this is a Stratelibri addition.
