View Full Version : Karchev and Anatomical precision

Okay this may be me reading things wrong but here goes.
Karchev man-in-machine states:

Man in the Machine -

Karchev is a living model, but he is neither a warjack nor a warrior model. He has a damage grid and suffers damage

like a warjack. Karchev can make slam, trample, throw, headlock/weapon lock, and push power attacks without spending focus. Karchev

cannot make throws or headlock/weapon locks while his Open Fist is crippled. Effects modifying the amount of damage to or the manner in
which damage is applied to a warjack also apply to him. The B boxes of Karchev

ʼs damage grid represent his Body system. Friendly Faction

models with the Repair skill can attempt to repair Karchev like a warjack but cannot repair his Body system. When Karchev spends focus points

to heal damage, he can heal damage only to his Body system. If another model heals Karchev through a means other than repair, damage can
be removed only from his Body system. While his Body system is crippled, he cannot allocate focus. Karchev is affected by deep water like a warrior model. Apply damage he suffers from deep water only to his Body system.

So he is a living model, but not a warjack or warrior, then if i hit him with:

Anatomical Precision -
When this modelʼs melee damage roll fails to exceed the ARM of the living model hit, that model suffers 1 damage point.

Does this mean my DoTF get one free dmg point on him if i don't exceed his arm? and if so do i then roll a column like a jack or does it go to his B system? From the wording on both abilities it seems that since he is living anatomical percisoin applies, but since he takes dmg like a warjack i have to roll a column.

On a side note does he get powerfield bonus for camping focus so he can be Arm 24 if he camps it all to overboost?

Yes, Karchev will suffer one damage point if the roll fails to exceed his arm. You will roll for column. Karchev gets +1 arm for each focus point on him as usual.

Apparently, models with anatomical precision can find his exposed forehead and poke it :D
