Also reguarding the steel rain, It has the 4.2 rockets which are 5/1 acroos the stat line. But theres no mention of how many rockest its has? In tactics it ofc has 4 as indicated on the unit card and you choose how many you wish to fire to double up the results. Is that the same case in warfare can it shoot is whole payload for 20/1!?
In Warfare, unless a weapon says specifically that it has a limited number of uses, it is unlimited. The Out of Ammo/Reload is a restraint.
The Steel rain makes a single 5/1 A attack with the rockets. It can do this every round, as long as you reload.
Whats confusing me about this is 5/1 as a one off shot seems like a waste of points/or pretty pointless, yes it still has the mortar but that can't gain unlimited range from indirect fire (DW core p84). On page 83 (DW core) it states "Unfortunatley, the rockets are stricktly one-shot weapons - at over 7 feet long they are far to cumbersome to reload under combat conditions" Yet the special rules benief still redirect you to the reload rules on page 58 lol
Fluff and rules are two different things. Try to keep them separated in your head.
The Steel Rain comes into it's own within 24". When an enemy is within 24" they can put a hurt down like few other walkers due to having two turret mounted Artillery weapons.
