The Spotter is a scout with very good eyes. He loves using his gifted physical trait in helping his fellow minifigs to more easily deliver death to their foes.
Cost- 10 CP
Spotting-The Spotter acts as a forward unit, and is often the first unit on the battlefield. With a successful skill roll of 5, the scout may use his Binoculars or other range finding device to designate a target. The scout may also use a skill roll to set up a landing zone for Paratroopers and/or Droptroopers.
Droptroopers and Paratroopers gain a +2 to their role to successfully hit their landing zone.
Indirect Fire units and creations(Mortar Teams, Catapults, ect) gain a +1 to hit and may ignore range when shooting at the designated target.
Snipers and their Med-Evil equivalents, Rangers, may shoot at foes in cover as if they are not in cover.
Binoculars/Rangefinder- Rng- 36'', use: 3
The device used by the Spotter to use his spotting skill.
Creations may take a spotting scope that gives the creation the Spotting Skill.
The paratrooper, and his Sci-Fi equivalent, the Droptrooper, decided that the best way to attack and destroy the enemy would be to get into a plane and fly it behind enemy lines, and jump out of the plane. Paratroopers are usually better trained and armed then a regular minifig.
Cost- 8 CP
Steer for the Landing Zone!- A paratrooper may make a skill role to try and land in a landing zone that a spotter has created. If he is sucessful in doing so, then he may make squad formation actions as if there was an officer near by (even if there is not one).
Were scattered all to hell...- A paratrooper who fails his landing zone skill role (or there is no landing zone) suffers a -2 penalty to his skills and movement for 2 turns while he reorganizes himself.
Camouflage(+ 2 CP)
Scouting(+ 1 CP)
Commando(+ 3 CP)- makes the paratrooper ignore Steer for the landing zone! and Were scatter all to hell....
Parachute- The parachute prevents the Paratroop from plummeting to the ground and making a big mess. He comes automatically equipped with one. The sci-fi equivalent is the Droppod.
Coming tomrrow- The Sniper and the Artilleryman.
