But that got me to thinking. One of the rule that makes this possible is that of the Cerberus Launchers on the storms themselves. Essentially, they cause the unit that’s being assaulted from the storm to make any leadership checks at -2. My question is this: if a single unit is assaulted by multiple scout units, disembarking from multiple storms, are the -2 modifiers cumulative?
For your convenience, the exact rules of the cerberus launchers can be found below:
The cerberus laucher is used to stun enemy units prior to an assault by Scouts.
If a Scout unit charges nito comat on the same turn as it disembarks from the Land Speeder, any enemy units that th Scoutsassault have their Leadership reduced b 2 for the duration of that assault phase.
Are those modifiers cumulative? If so, an assault by two scouts units, both with powerfists, would likely mean a victory by at least 1 wound–making the negative modifier at least -5. Best case scenario, this means that a unit is going to need to roll a 4 or a 5 in order to stay in combat…
I’m interested to hear your thoughts on the matter… Do you think the modifiers should be combined?
