Hi Astro

Quick question as playing a game tomorrow and plan to use the nova cannon for the first time.

Is the Nova Cannon a guess range weapon? I don't see anything to suggest you do guess the range, apart from p22 of the BFG rulebook under "Minimum Range" which says:

"...when estimating the range you cannot guess less than 30cm"

Is it a guess weapon?!

No, you do not need to the guess when firing the Nova Cannon however the further the range the more dice you roll to scatter.

Yeah that was my understanding - just that one line that confused me as I say. Obviously it being a guess weapon makes it decidley trickier. So it not being, and my loving Imperials, is great news!

Thanks Skringly :)
