Default to hit help

when you roll to hit, you do it with a number of dices equal to the weapon number at the side of the type of the weapon being shooted or just one dice?

sorry dudes. Im a complete rookie...

Ok, I think the question you were asking is this:

"When rolling to hit do I use a number of dice equal to the number beside the weapon charcteritics in the weapons profile?"

The answer is yes.

For example when firing an Assault 3 weapon you roll 3 dice to hit, for every one that scores the required number you have hit once.

Remember that some weapons can only be fired in certain circumstances, i.e. you can't move and fire with a heavy weapon.

I must say that for me its pretty clear the characteristics for each weapon type, anyway thanks man. What happens its that I watched a bunch of guys playing at my local store and they were just rolling one die to hit and then as many as the weapon type number to wound. The few times Ive played always rolled to hit as many dices as the weapon type number comparing it to BS-7 and each roll that equals or beats that number its a hit... then you check if wounds... its that right?

well, forgive my grammar and thank you Falstead!
