Default Hallucinogen Grenades

Hey I was just wondering how hallucinogen grenades work.

In the CJ list, it says that Hallucinogen grenades change the outnumbering ratio "one grade" in favour of the Harlequin(s) using them. I still don&#39;t get it, what is exactly one grade and what would happen should the Harlequins do not outnumber the enemy, does that mean they count as outnumbering 2:1.....

can someone help/explain to me how exactly they work.

yes, and if the harlies outnumber them 2:1 they count as outnumbering them 3:1 and so on, if I have understood your post correctly.

Yeah Hallucinogen grenades are very effective against GEQ armies because you can easily win combats against them, however against MEQ they aren&#39;t as effective but still useful, IMO

Of course, in the new Eldar Codex the Hallucinogen Grenades are downgraded to a special grenade carried by the Shadowseer that gives the whole Harlequin unit the effects of Plasma Grenades.

not that the new Harlequins are all bad, but they aren&#39;t as good/true to the way they should be. I believe that the CJ list is one of the best representations of them.

Put simply, take the result and move it one in favour of the &#39;Quins. This applies even if they don&#39;t actually have an outnumbering bonus.

For example, if your opponent outnumbers you 4:1, then Hallucinogen Grenades will change that to 3:1. If neither side gets an Outnumbering bonus, then the Grenades shift that to 2:1 Harlequin favour.
