Mixed Warmachine Crew

Postby Jonathon Chester » Thu Nov 29, 2018 11:50 am

I'm unsure if this is has been answered before but in the case of the Auxillia Option he can take an upgrade which allows him to be a crewman of a warmachine if he has any bastiliarius under his command. When firing the warmachine do you use his higher skill if one or more Bastiliarius are bound to the warmachine or majority skill?

you use his skill
downside is the crew come in sets of 2 or 4, so if you take the Option for the higher skill you sacrifice a shot

But as a crewman do you not keep the shot for him?

the war machines have a maximum amount that can crew them, so if the max for the ballista is 4, the crew come in squads of 2 or 4 (not 2 to 4) then your options are either
take the crews skill and have 4 shots
take the Options skill and have 3 shots

Remember that I've amended this to

"If an Auxilia Option is mustered as a commander and his command contains any Ballistarius units, the Auxilia Option may act as War Engine Crew in addition to any other War Engine Crew"
