In a previous thread, we ran the numbers on HB's long-range shooters, using Armand Le Muet and a Taigha as targets. But, we all know the long range isn't HB's strong suit. Let's assume we can get something into 24" range of Armand, and see how the options stack up. Asawira AP Spitfire The perennial favourite. By himself, he's 38% to wound Armand, 24% to get wounded, 7% to get wounded twice. That's pretty bad. Put him in a haris and it's 44%-22%-6%, still bad. In a core, it's 48%-19%-5%. Yara Haddad By herself, Yara is 47% to wound, 16% to get wounded. Much better than the Asawira thanks to her MSV2, although she's more vulnerable to bad luck since a single wound is enough to put her unconscious. In a haris she's 55%-13%, not really much better, and in a core, 59%-11%. Let's try her in a haris and shooting through smoke (giving Armand a -3 due to his MSV1): 63%-7%. Still some risk, but by far the best option so far. Bokhtar Red Fury 40% to wound, 19% to get wounded, 5% to get wounded twice. So, only slightly better than a solo Asawira and a little worse than an Asawira in a haris. Interesting considering all the talk about what a great gunfighter the Bokhtar is. Admittedly, she may have an easier time getting into 24" of Armand than the Asawira would. Nadhir AP MMR Yes this is a profile that exists! But it's no good against Armand - 26% to wound, 26% to get wounded. Surprise Attack would improve the odds slightly, but the Nadhir is unlikely to be able to Surprise Attack within 24" of Armand. Lasiq Viral MMR Even in a pure core, only 45% to wound, 25% to get wounded. Much worse in a more realistic fireteam. Sunduqbut AP Spitfire We already checked this one: The AP Spitfire, using Surprise Attack, is 43% to wound and 18% to get wounded. On subsequent orders, it's 36% to wound, 26% to get wounded. That's... not good... Conclusion Wow... we don't have a lot that can reliably take out Armand. The only one of these fights I'd be happy taking is Yara in a haris through smoke. Even then, I don't like the 7% risk. Maybe we should just send McMurrough to Chain Rifle him?
