So just thinking yesterday about "the old" stunlock tactic. If your not sure what that is its when shooting at a vehicle, you cause either Vehicle Shaken or Stunned result, then move on to the next target. You are basically wanting to stop it shooting back at you.

Rolls or 1 and 2 cause either Shaken or Stunned, but the important thing is that for transports, the passangers on the isnde are also affected, even if they disembark.

So has anyone been keeping this idea in mind during the first few turns of your games? Potentially a Ravager could shut down the transport AND its passangers in each of its shooting phases, to allow for other units to close in or take up better positions (like Trueborn, Wyches, Beasts, Incubi etc)

You have to penetrate to even start rolling on damage table.


I think the only time it does matter is when you brings a lot of damage results to the vehicle via close-combat i.e. wyches or beastmasters, so that one of them is shaken or stunned.

THats just a nice addition to a dead vehicle.

Of course you do, but say on your first successful Pen you roll a 2, which becomes a 3 on the damage table. The question is; are people satisfied with that and move on to the next target

this just comes down to how the game is going, what targets are available and the experience of the player, too many variations so just have to play the game as it is, weigh up each target and prioritize each time you cause damage if a transport is stun locked and their is another target think most players except the inexperienced will move on to another unless their is no other target.

depends on the target, sometimes a tank just needs to be wrecked (they are all meched and you have a ton of venoms just waiting, a land raider, something with extra armor) but normally yes, I am satisfied with a stun
