NinthMusketeer Posted February 13 Share Posted February 13 With third edition we have seen a proliferation of every army getting easy access to MW-attacks. That is, attacks which inflict mortal wounds on unmodified 6s to hit. I will be honest; to me this is the worst aspect of 3rd edition. For decades, Warhammer Fantasy understood that the sequence is hit-wound-save and skipping one roll was OK but skipping two was not. Poison attacks allowed hits of 6 to wound automatically, killing blow allowed wounds of 6 to bypass armour. Only in AoS have we been treated to entire armies rocking 'poison' which burns through the thickest armour like it isn't there. I find it deeply unfun because it goes from a tactical game of averages to repeated gambling--literally rolling the dice to see if you get lucky. And this is coming from someone who is VERY guilty of exploiting such mechanics to a cheesy degree. I have slaughtered more opponents than I can remember with MWs on 6s to hit. It was barely fun then for the novelty, it certainly isn't fun now. Do you have the same issue, or am I just crazy? Does your local community have any particular house rules or techniques for dealing with this?
