Default Gorechild vs. Skimmers?

Well in a tournament i played in today we had a situation arise where Kharne attacked one of my piranha's.

Now you always need 6's to hit a skimmer that has moved over 6" that turn.

But gorechild always hits on a 2+

in this situation what do you guys think was the correct solution?

in the end we just decided to roll for it and i let kharne hit it on a 2+, but it got me thinking aobut it.


I wasn't too worried about the result tho. I lost 1 piranha and 4 firewarriors the entire game. and Kharne fell to a squad of firewarriors in CC :P

Kharne will still hit on 2+ because it is a characters special rule not just some random ground pounder. The rule book is set up for all the basics and the codex adds rules on top of the basic rules.

Hope that helps.

I'd say he hits on 2+ as well. Bear in mind that close combat doesn't just mean people are just using close combat weapons, and by extension, Kharn won't just use Gorechild to maim people, he also has his plasma pistol, so hitting a piranha won't be too hard for a guy who's been using his weapons for millennia

I'm more worried about Kharn falling to a squad of Fire Warriors in CC. That's so not right. Wasn't he supported by any Berzerkers?

And I agree he hits on 2s, for the reason that the point of Kharn is that he is SO GOOD THAT HE ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS hits SOMETHING. No matter what, Kharn hits an amount of times equal to his attacks, it's just that if it's a 1 it's on his own side. Kharn never misses.

Unless he's by himself, in which case he misses one of six times. Although if I had Kharn on his own (which I wouldn't) I'd be tempted to play in character and if he rolled a miss have him fall back from the combat and go haring off after the nearest squad of my own troops.

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the rule state something to the effect that he hits on a 2+ regardless of the opponents WS? If so I'd think it would have no affect against a vehicle which has no WS.

You are referring to the old Kharne the Berserker rules. The new one has an all-new rule, with no reference to WS.

Ah okay, well if he's still str 4 (will have to look it up next time in a store) he still shoulden't bee to much of a worry for skimmers.

Yeah. The rules state that Kharn's close combat attacks ALWAYS hit on 2+, so even skimmers will be hit easily no matter how far they move. And on top of that he does 2D6 armour penetration against tanks.
