Default Hellhound question?

I was wondering what happens if you place the template outside of 12". Do you lose the shot or you bring the template within 12". Or do you pre-measure to see if you're in 12" and drop the template.

I'm thinking if you're out of 12" you lose the shot. Cause you're not supose to premeasure. But darn it. I want to know so I could be sure.

The narrow end of the Template must be within 12" and the broader end of the Template must not be closer to the vehicle than the narrow end. With that, I think you can still safely touch the target. Just as long as you're able to touch them, you're able to fry them. Oh, no pre-measure.

So what happens if the narrow in is past 12" I guess that's what I'm asking. Do you drop template than measure to the narrow end. Or can you pivot the template so the narrow end is within 12". Just trying to understand. Cause it does make a big differance. If it's what I think it is than you'll have to know how far out is 12" or you'll wind up missing. If it's the other way around it wouldn't matter cause you can always adjust it with 12". I hope I'm getting my point across.

If the narrow end is outside 12", I think you probably miss your shot.
I would say that you have to place the template, then measure to check range. If you are out of range, the shot misses, just like any other weapon.
I don't think you would get to move the template around after you have declared your shot.
However, while you cant measure, remember that you have an 8" template in your hand already, and you naturally have to move it around to get your shot, so you can use it to roughly judge distance. For example, so long as your target is less than two templates distance away, you should be in range.

Think of it as a Flamer [with an extended range]. Here, follow this step:
1) Declare target
2) Measure 12" from Hellhound
3) Place narrow end of Template within 12" of Hellhound
4) Try to touch the target with the Template
5) If any hits, roll to wound as normal. If no hits, you miss.

Simple, no?

That would make sense. I couldn't imagine moving it within 12". I forget I'm dealing with 8" already so that would help out a lot to get a good shot in.

So. I would measure 12" out first before I shoot in step 2. I would say step 2 was my question to see if you do measure it before you lay down the template or not.

Duh! That's how you know whether your target is within range to be hit. Measure 12" then lay down the Template where you want it. What's so hard about using the Inferno Cannon?

Was just asking to be sure. Sometimes I do over complicate things at times.

Blessed is the mind too small for doubt.
