So, I'm getting back into Warmachine after 10 years. I started when it first came out, loved it, but had Warhammer 40,000 to focus on, and my Tau have kept my attention (and pocket book) since then. However, I've become somewhat... bored with 40k, so I want to restart my beloved Cygnar.
A few things are sad: Haley's old temporal barrier is no longer the absurdly powerful upkeep spell it once was. Ah well, it was WAY to powerful IMO.
At any rate, I have many questions:
Can you actually charge your own models? This seems silly, but I was reading thread's on how to make eCaine more powerful.
When making magic attack roles, is that based on current focus or total focus? Example:
When using eHaley's time bomb, do you just roll 8+2d6, or (if this is the first thing you've cast and have max focus) do you roll 4+2d6? If it's the latter, how are offensive spells used effectively? Hitting seems impossible...
Do people find the Themed Cygnar lists at all worth it?
Is it possible for eStryker to heal himself via focus if he 'kills' himself with overload?
Does the Hunter's armour piercing ability stack with Major Brisbane's feat? If so, how?
Also, how long does Breach last for? A single attack or the entire round?
How does the ATGM officer's rune shot work with a 'Jack marshaled Cyclone? Rapid fire is just a normal attack right? So does rune shot apply to each of the d3 shots? Is it the same rune per shot? Can you change runes per shot? Are the shots done simultaneously?
ie, Can I push someone back 3d3" or do I have to see if I push them out of range before I fire the next shot?
Can you use combined range attack twice with long gunners that are using dual shot?
Can Major Laddermore 'join' a unit of Storm Lances (so they can all benefit from arcane shield, for example)?
Considering prowl, since it says concealment, does it mean that if you're behind a wall (ie cover, not concealment) do you still gain stealth?
Oh, one last question. Does charging with a melee weapon that is also a weapon master mean that you get str+4d6 damage? (like bane thralls, ugh) Or kara sloans gun.
I think this is everything for now. Thanks for everyone's help!
