Well I wanted to see if the new Ranged Attack sequence from the last errata fixed everything (It does) before I changed anything but those nija have been killing 12 models per turn for too long!
These 2 changes are effective immediately and will be used for the Masters at UK Games Expo. They will be included in the errata after masters (The usual annual errata).
I just want to assure players that there will be no other errata (Unless something horrendous is discovered!) until next year. I know we had 2 this year already but thats not the norm.
Ranged Attack Modifiers
+1 Per Ranged Attack already made by the active model this Turn.
This helps with Hail of Steel but also tones down Sanjakubo's 4 stuns per turn, Wasapu and co. crossbows and models with feats to reload shooting twice in a turn (Especially Kahime).
Also, a minor unintended issue with disguise was missed from the last errata, its enough to warrant a change now:
A Disguised model has no ZoC, and Enemy models with a Ki Statistic of 1 or less cannot Target, or voluntarily move into BtB, with it.
Enemy models with a Ki Statistic of 2 or more may do so only by succeeding in an Opposed Ki test against this model. Determine whether the effect targeting the model is in range, or the Enemy model can reach BtB, before attempting this test.
If the Enemy model is successful, remove the Disguised state, and resolve the action as normal. If it is unsuccessful, its activation ends, and its condition worsens.
If a Disguised model declares a Melee, Ranged Attack, Charge, or Scenario action, or participates in a Melee Exchange, remove its Disguise marker.
Now i am leaving the soulless + disguised combo for now but I am watching it. As they can't perform Scenario actions, I feel I can let the ninjas have their unpenetrable disguise.
A couple of clarifications too:
If a Disguised, Soulless model is targetted by a Soulless model, the disguise will break and the attack goes ahead.
Master Enos must choose to do damage with Divert Energy to apply Spirit Block. Stealing Ki will not apply a Spirit Block Marker.
As always let me know what you think and commant below or in the Battle Report forums with your experiences.
