sounds good. Needs rewording due to what I noted the first time. Thanks for the clarification.
You get 1 hit per rank as normal penetrating works, but instead of just one hit per rank, you get D3 hits.Could some explain how DH flame cannons work? I read it as it has the penetrating rule and add D3 per rank, therefore 1+d3 to a max of # of models per rank. Key word is "add". To me this reads the initial hit and then add D3 hits. This is RAW. What is RAI?
So a unit with one rank, you get D3 hits.
If he has 5 ranks, you get 5D3 hits.
