Question about Group Attack?????
« on: November 15, 2005, 09:36:36 AM »
Say one goblin spearman attacks something that already has just one other spearman attacking.  Is the bonus +2/+2  or +4/+4???   These numbers do not count charging bonuses.  Let assume he is already in combat.

Thanks for your replies!

OK, let us begin with the start....

Spearmen A charges into battle...because he is the first he will get only the charge bonus (+1/+1).

Spearmen B joins him...he will get the charge bonus as well and another (+1/+1) because there is already a buddy in cc and another one 'cause he has the SA Gruop the total bonus will be (+3/+3) [charge+buddy+groupattack]

The target isn't already dead so Spearmen C enters the stage, he will have a total bonus of (+5/+5) [charge+2x(buddy+groupattack)]

The next one would have (+7/+7) and so on and on and on....

just my two cents....

Nicely broken down.  Group Attack is what makes those Goblin Spearmen so tough, for such a low budget troop.  Every Blackblood player should have some.  Cheers.
