min dice when shooting

Post by thegatt on Thu Nov 01, 2018 12:50 am

Hi Folks,
just wanted to check that BI does not have a min dice rule when shooting (like one added to new Impetus).

i.e. my plans for Comp Bow Horse Archers need to factor in that Comp Bow at 6H = -4/-3 so mostly means they only shoot at 3H.

Andy.

no minimum dice. In theory they are still shooting at each other, like skirmisher vs skirmisher, but the shooting is so desultory that it has no effect in the game.

Even a single die rolling a 6 16% of the time is quite powerful and causes a test and disorder.

thanks for that.
I agree that a min dice makes a big diff.
that's clear in Baroque where a min dice rule exists. (but diff techs and tactics so seemed ok).
I was just surprised to see one added to Full Impetus and wanted to check status in BI.
