1 quick question everyone
 
ok its about 3 am here and i just thought of something y would u use an explosive tiped lance 2 hunt with? Isnt that like using a bazooka 2 hunt quail :o. It just made very little sence 2 me as hunting means ur gonna hunt but explosive tipped means ur gonna blow it 2 shreds .
Imagine 1 little gard running arround the woods then boom he hits a deer. He doesnt even need 2 cook it he just has 2 find all the pieces.

Ne ways night all i need some sleep. Tomarrow is a big day i gotta sleep in then watch cartoons.

The Hunting Lance is designed to be used against larger creatures, such as Grox (who are essentially cows in body armour). The explosive charge delivers a deadly (and quite horrific) wound where a normal lance may not stop the giant, snarling beast.

Your right Wargamer, it would be useful to hit Elephants but certainly not deer lol.

Well worlds like atilla do not use explosive hunting lances(they dont have much tech at all)they just use normal lances and get given explosive ones for battles when they join the gaurd. Ive never read anywhere of hunters using hunting lances although the grox/elephant theory would work. They probably called them hunting lances as thats whatthey are called alreay its just that they are modified with explosives and it could be refering to hunting the enemy war terms.

My source refers to the initial introduction of Rough Riders, way back in 1st/early 2nd Edition.

Yeh some worlds probably do use explosive tips and others just use them once they join the gaurd. In the atilla story an atillan commander returns home and is devastated to find atilla has started using technology and his people are living like rats in the space port so he gathers all the falling tribes and takes out a despots(who has been killing off the tribes) fort by using a few plasma guns and some explosive tipped lances that he took with him from his gaurd days(they were all pretty amazed by those.

Ahhh the wonders of explosive technology. I love hunting lances, even if they are, in theory overkill, unless of course it's a carnifex, then by all means, use explosives.

LOTS of explosives. I don't think I'd want to attack a carnifex with a pointy stick...even if it did have explosives on the end of it. Anyway, isn't that a bit dangerous? I've heard of people in wars who have charged at tanks with mines on the end of long poles/sicks and they usually end up blown in half or with the pole blown through thier innards.
