Deadly Strike vs. Counter Strike

Alright, I have Migol Ironwill vs. Kaemon Awa in a one on one for the game!
Now, I rolled 2 skulls for Migol. My opponent rolled 3 sheilds. Does this mean they both take wounds for that attack? Migol from counterstrike, and Kaemon from critical hit. Or am I using deadly strike wrong? Does deadly strike count as extra skulls? or extra wounds if the "hit" gets through?

As I understand it.....

2 skulls for Migol = 4 hits
3 shields for KA = 3 defense

KA takes 1 wound.

Ah, but wouldn't Migol also take a wound based on the fact that Kaemon rolled more sheilds? That's what I'm not sure of!

I don't think so....Since all 3 shields are used to block the 4 hits, there are no "excess shields" to count as unblockable hits.

Re: Deadly Strike vs. Counter Strike

For what it's worth I agree. I think your opponent is a rule's lawyer and you should find someone else to play with. Forsooth, both units take wounds?

I can twist the rules until I win, yes I can!

Re: Deadly Strike vs. Counter Strike

Oh he is! And I thought they both took a wound, which coincidentally makes the game end in a draw!

Re: Deadly Strike vs. Counter Strike

Deadly strike basicaly means any Skulls rolled are doubled in number.

The same rule applies for Evil Eye Defence.


Without dark, there is no light.
Without bad HScape figs, there are no good ones.
Dund is important, therefore

Yes, but since they are not "rolled" per se, as in the counter strike description, does that mean counter strike also does a wound because the shields outnumber the number of skulls physically rolled?

Re: Deadly Strike vs. Counter Strike

No, 2 skulls with Deadly strike counts as 4, simple as that. If the fig with CS rolled 3 shields, then its 4 vs 3, not 2 vs 3.

Now through May 28th, the Louisville region is in desperate need of platelets - call the Red Cross if you are interested in donating!

Yeah, that's a tough rule to remember when it screws you over.
