nuke

Unread post by dano903 » Sun May 05, 2013 5:48 pm

Anyone have stats on a nuke?

My thoughts....

One hex everything destroyed and removed. The next outer hex around...soldiers destroyed and removed. Vehicles damaged marker, or removed if already disrupted.

Any other suggestions? Thanks for your time!

Hmm - it seams a bit overpowering, but lets give it a go...

It goes without saying that it has to be indiscriminate - like that Blast SA. and be expensive...!

I see two ways of doing this:
Option 1:
Target hex: 4 hits (no cover)
Target hex +1: 3 hits
Target hex +2: 2 hits
Target hex +3: 1 hit

Option 2:
Target hex: 25 dice (no cover)
Target hex +1: 17 dice
Target hex +2: 14 dice
Target hex +3: 10 dice

In both options you can role for cover (not target hex), and if you have line of sight, you get a disrupt to simulate the temporary blindness the flash can cause.

I kinda like the option 1 best, but as with all other weapons the effect can weary, so I think the dice-roling option could be fun as well (you spend a lot of points and end up striking out).

hello,

thanks. I think we're close. maybe a tactical nuke to affect a limited number of hexes, however... the hex attacked with the nuke is removed from game play the rest of the turns after attack???

Is this JUST an excuse to make a big crater hex in your workshop?
And how do you remove a hex - scissors?

I like the idear, that the hex is unusable the next turn/s...
You could also add a fallout area, say role a dice to determine wind direction and then give hits to all in that area the round after the blast...

lol... Yes! a crater hex! That would be an impassable hex. The fallout area is brilliant! I'll have to hobby some nuclear plants, and maybe some components you gather from the map to be able to make a nuke and launch it. for now... just the kill zone nuke location, and FALLOUT area.

I just don't see nukes in AA minis. Too overpowered.
