Hi fellow archons, first post here.

What is everyone's understanding of how the "calcific spears" special rule applies in artillery units?

The general rule is to use the guns toughness for all shooting attacks - eg a vaults wrath crewman has a T3 in his profile but uses T7 for shooting attacks. does that mean that if you remove a crewman from play as a result of an ossefactor hit you get D6 S7 or S3 hits on the unit?

Pretty sure the calcific Spears specify the removed models toughness.

They do. That's my gut feeling is that it is probably simply T3. However, the rule relating to artillery arguably overrules it because the ossefactor is a shooting attack that technically wounded against T7.

From a fluff perspective T3 makes more sense

"The Strength of these hits is equal to the Toughness characteristic of the model removed as a casualty"

Yep guess it is pretty clear.

What has everyone's experience with ossefactors been?

I always take them in my Scalpel Squadron. They might not be the best investment of points but when they work it can be hilarious.

Yeah.Ill give them a go. I think the Fleshnane AP2 is pretty good. Two of those and 24 splinter shots should be able to do a bit of damage against small high value or toughness units
