I've been fooling around with the template and bases. This is what I came up with.

by positioning the template as seen below, we can score an number of hits equal to:

for unit's on small bases in formation 5x5 and larger = 21 hit's

for unit's 5x4 = 20 hit's

for large based infantry = 16 hit's

skirmishers on small bases in 5x3 = 12 hit's
skirmishers on large bases in 5x4 = 12 hit's

cavalry in 5x3 = 11 hit's :shock:
cavalry in 5x2 = 10 hit's :shock:



Agains small sqr based unit's in formation 5x5 or larger,
Image

If the unit is positioned 5x4 you can hit all 20 models, notice the corners of the models placed in the corner's of the unit are partially covered.
Image

for large bases we can hit a max of 4x4 bases,
Image


as for cav. I was quite surprised that in 3x5 we can get 11 hit's.
Image

as for 2x5 we can clearly hit all 10.
Image


moving on to skirmishers, small bases, the dice are 1/24 less then 1/2 an inch.
Image

and large based skirmisher's.

Thanks, KillerK. You've got an entry in the D.R.A.I.C.H.!

This template check is useful for us when casting some spells, and is nice to know when we're victims of warmachines or spells.

Except we are not going to tell our opponent how to maximize the number of kills with a template ! Are we? :twisted:

The picture was done using my phone, so it's not the best quality.

By moving the template to the top left, it would cease to cover the 2 bases in the bottom-right corner, it's just an photo trick, I probably held the phone at a slight angle, that's why it look's like there is enough template, just checked again to make sure, the template is just a fraction of an inch too small. :cry:

It took me a while to realize what was going on, and why didn't I notice it before.

I thought round templates had to be centered over a model in the unit. Is that not correct?

The hole has to be over a single model but it doesn't have to be centered on that model.

One problem. I have no knowledge of templates that don't scatter in 8th edition.

Dwarf grudge throwers with rune of accuracy!!!!

They never never never never scatter! I mean seriously - even with a reroll they have to scatter some times, dont they?!?

Dammit I hate grudge throwers! My opponent consistently take 2+ with RoAccuracy, RoPenetrating and RoBurning.

... which obviously means that I am consistently taking 3 units of 5 shades ;-)


(apart from that, Black Horror doesnt scatter - even in 8th!)
