Default Re: rending/strength

A rending hit in combat, against infantry, is an automatic wound with no armour save permitted.

Reding against vehicles works like this: Roll to hit (if necessary), roll all hits. Any 6's are Rending hits. Now you have that 6 plus your strength value. For example we'll say this gives you 10. Then you roll another D6 and add the value to your previous total. So let's say you roll a 4. That 4 gets added to the 10, giving you 14. That is your armour penetration roll against vehicles. Then you roll to damage as normal on the corresponding table.

As for monstrous creatures, it's really not worth giving them Rending Claws as they get 2D6 + strength for armour penetration, and they ignore armour anyway.

Also, bio-plasma, as stated by striogi, doesn't benefit from the Monstrous Creature or Rending rule. But would it benefit from the Implant Attack rule I wonder? ???

Hope this helps.
Mkoll.
