Fortifications & Upgrades
« on: March 21, 2017, 08:36:19 AM »
So I'm playing around with the Iron Warriors Grand Company decurion.  As an auxiliary choice, they have the option to include fortifications in their decurion.

So I'm thinking about what I can do with that, AV14 bastion bubbles for static havocs, etc but the issue I have is that the upgrades for those fortifications aren't clear on exactly what you're buying.

So if I take a Bastion and decide I want some barricades for culists to hide behind and screen it from assault, how big are those barricades?  4" long? 6" long? 8" long? Heck, 12"?  The same goes for tank traps and tangle wire.  Or in the event that it doesn't actually specify somewhere what you get for your points, what do most people consider "fair"?

And if someone finds a page reference please post the book and page number, that would be awesome.

Take heamotrope reactors for your Oblits, they will then get to fire a 5" plasma cannon and blast plasma gun. With a 2+ and two wounds they can weather the 1-2 gets hot.
About your other question I don't have Stronghold assault to hand at the moment, maybe look on 1d4Chan, they will have it.

Because it's digital I can't give you a page number, but it is said in Stronghold Assault book in the section for Obstacle in the Fortifacation Upgrades chapter.  Six inches.  So each obstacle follows the Battlefirld Debris rules and has additional rules depending on what type you've chosen, but they're all six inches long sections that must be set up wholly within six inches of the Fortification itself.

Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to know. :-)
