Description

  • Each outer location has Armour counters in two parts (of 2 counters each - light and dark grey) for “Armour Protection” and “Armour Resistance”.
    • For damage to get past those hexes on the chassis diagram, it will be reduced by 2 (Protection) and for every damage over 2 points done (after the reduction), the armour is reduced by 1 (resistance)
  • Each outer location (total 6) has a Mobility counter in it - 3 are light and 3 are dark green for “Mobility Speed” and “Mobility Terrain”.
    • Having counters in 6 locations means the Bot can turn once for every hex moved forward. If it had all 7 locations, then it could turn on the spot. It has 3 movement points per turn (Speed) and is equiped with Legs (Terrain) which enable it to move on roads, off roads and in difficult terrain
  • The Bot has 6 Weapon counters (3 light and 3 dark red) that have a connector between them as the counters cover more than one location and which counter belongs to which component would get confusing if there were more than one weapon.
    • The weapon covers the locations of Forward Left, Front and Forward Right and so has a 180 degree arc of fire to the front. It causes 3 damage when it hits (Damage) and has a range of 3 hexes (Range).</blockquote>
  • The Bot has 7 Sensor counters (4 light and 3 dark yellow) that have a connector between them as the counters cover more than one location and which counter belongs to which component would get confusing if there were more than one sensor.
    • The sensor covers the locations of Forward Left, Forward Right and Backward Right so has a 180 degree arc of fire to the sides (120 right, 60 left). It adds +4 to hit with a weapon (Accuracy) and has a range of 3 hexes (Range).
  • Finally the Boiler resides in the back three locations and consists of the 5 blue counters.
    • Each boiler counter powers 4 counters of weapon, sensor or mobility. A total of 19 for this Bot.
