A question about special creation squads.

Postby Kaplan » Sun Jun 30, 2013 5:45 am

I really like battles of squads. I plan to make squads of special creations like mechs. Since the mechs i made are size 3-4 creations and they are grouped in squads i know that it is possible for a minifig size unit to single out one of them in ranged attack. But is a component damge also possible? Since the components are small enough not to be distinguished in the squad, I think that according to the rules, component damage of the creations in squads is not possible.

Related topics from 2005 Rules:

8.6: Taking Damage
Targeting A Squad
“There is an exception to this rule: an attacker can Single Out a specific unit within a Squad as long as the target unit is at least twice the attacking unit's Size. Targets any smaller than that are too difficult to distinguish in the chaos of battle.”

7.5 Taking Damage
Component Damage
When an attacker wants to focus damage on a Creation’s particular weak point, he may single out an individual construction element for Component Damage. This takes a little more accuracy than a General attack - many elements are small enough to incur Attack Penalties for size, although a rare few are large enough to confer a bonus.

They could still target components of size 2 or more, like limbs and guns.

Wow, that is some nice work on the photography and squad sheets.  :tiger:
Shamelessly blatant self-promotion: check out my armory, where you can find new custom abilities and battle-gear stats, and my MOCPages page, which I really ought to update more often.
