posticon Lost weapons.


Who can help ? - Whilst travelling I encountered a hazard roll which stated we have lost our weapons for the next dungeon!!!! Erm ... how do we fight - we have no weapons !! Is it hand to hand?? And if so - how do we work out the strengths or WS to hit ?? Cos fists won't be as good as the character cards weapon. Am I missing something? Thanks !! P.s - anyone got PDF stuff from box sets ?? Cheers .. Gash

Re: Lost weapons.


That is a cruel Hazard! The Warriors have plenty enough trouble as it is. emoticon

The general rule is that if a Warrior fights without a weapon, then he does NOT add his Strength characteristic to the damage roll. The Warrior just rolls his/her Damage Dice. To hit rolls are usually NOT affected by fighting without a weapon.

This is all about fighting in close combat. A Warrior who has no missile weapons can only attack in close combat.

Below I quote the first Adventure in the Adventure Book concerning being without weapons (and without armour in this case):

quote:

1 THE BEAST

Captured by the Goblin Warlord Ugrul Headsticka while exploring the ruins of Karak Azgal, the Warriors have been given a chance to escape and, in the process, provide entertainment for the Goblins.
The Warriors must fight their way to freedom without weapons or armour! And as if that were not enough, their only way out is through the Minotaurs’ lair.

SPECIAL RULES

The Warriors start this dungeon stripped of any armour and weapons they may have, and must fight with their bare hands.

No Armour
While they are without armour the Warriors may only deduct their Toughness from any blows that hit them.

No Weapons
The Warriors start with no weapons at all (even missile weapons), and must therefore fight in hand-to-hand combat using their fists While fighting unarmed, each Warrior does 1D6 Wounds when he hits, with no modifiers for Strength.

Re: Lost weapons.


i would just point out the rules do state you cannot lose the weapon on your character card...

but then there is that adventure which says you do exactly that...

consistency!

most of my posts may run into essay length. I find that for a lot of queries/feedback context is important and that is why this happens more often than not.

have a great day :D

Re: Lost weapons.


Thank you Edquest ! I used to know most of the rules inside out - then after many moons ..... you forget. I have asked a few times on here if anyone has all the original rules as a PDF but no one seems forthcoming lol. Any help would be gratefully received my friend. Gash580 ( Cheshire uk )

May be Gash, we just do not want to run afoul of GW Legal, yes?
We would like to keep this board going because it is one of the very few WhQ sites that GW Legal has not handed a C&D order to.

Since you are in the UK, it should not be too hard to go to a game con or a club and convince a trader/gamer there to part with their set at little to no cost to you.

If anything, see if GW has something for the collector as far as PDFs.
GW seems thrilled with their new WhQ boxed game sets that maybe you could find someone at WarhammerFest or some other big GW con to help you out with this?

In other words Gash, please stop asking for something that will bring only trouble to this board.
Asking us for PDFs of books that still have an active copyright on them and a very willing legal team to maintain those rights is just not very nice.

Okay Gash?
Hope so.

Happy Questing!
