Firing at Skirmishers

Post by Robert Burnham »

Is there a negative bonus for firing at a skirmish group?

Thanks!

Not directly. However skirmisher troops do have a cover bonus, so hits tend to be less effective against them.

Thanks Bishop.

What do you mean by a cover bonus?

Skirmish troops count as being in one level of cover better. So soft cover if they are in the open, otherwise hard cover.

And Light Infantry ignore the first Kill of every shooting action on them if they’re actually in hard cover
