Steward's Generator

Recommended Posts

Now as I have some Stewards, I was wondering; Does the shield die only work when the Steward is a majority, or on all incoming attacks? Or is it supposed to be a Guardian?

I thought the rules said it was a Guaridan generator...nope regular shield generator.

 

SHIELD GENERATOR (value)

Shield Generators are always active. A target of a Ranged Attack it may roll a

number of Shield Dice equal to the value of the Shield Generator to mitigate

potential damage. For each roll of a 4, 5 or 6 on a Shield Dice (subject to dice

colour) one success is removed from the incoming Attack. This may prevent one

or more Units being damaged or destroyed.

I hate this rule in this case, but I agree with the interpretation.

In the end, getting a 5th gun in a 4 model unit of Mk.II's is nice.. especially when it's a better gun. Not having to lose the HQ(1) perk, and Vet Morale rolls is nice too.

But the "Guardian" part of this Guardian tank is basically useless. I don't need the additional point of KR or the Shield itself nearly as much, when it's by itself, or with one other Mk.II.

There is the ability to merge with other half-strength Mk.II battalions, but that functionality often takes too long to setup.
