Queen's Gambit accepted
Major Pierre Bouchard sat in the cramped van that sewed as the Eridani 27th Company's mobile command center, his chair propped against one wall, scanning the computer readout from the report of his Recon Team. Things in the Arlum Valley were quiet – almost too quiet.
Bouchard had worked with Jaime Wolf before, back on Callisto V, when the Dragoons were still pledged to House Steiner. Now they were fighting for opposing houses, but from their previous work together Bouchard had a good idea of what his opponent was likely to do. The Colonel would not wait long before starting his offensive and was likely to hit on several fronts simultaneously.
“Well, we're waiting”, Bouchard thought, and stared out the window at the line of battle-ready ‘Mechs, while his metal-encased bionic right foot beat out an anxious rhythm on the steel floor of the van.
As it in response the computer started spiting out lines of print. Observers to the east, reporting enemy ‘Mech movement: one full lance or more marked with the satiny web pattern of Kerensky, the Black Widow, headed along the banks of the Kethrin River. There could be no doubt what their target was.
Bouchard yelled through the open door, “Daley. Come in here!” and clambered to his feet. He handed his burly aide-de-camp the last page of the printout, and Daley whistled softly as he read it.
Tossing the paper back onto the monitor console, Bouchard asked, “What do you think?”
“Well. sir. it seems pretty clear they're after the old General Circuits complex up near Belfast Heights. I’d say let 'em have it. We've already moved most of the usable equipment and stockpiles out of there.”
“Of course, Lieutenant. You and I know the GC plant has little strategic importance. I'm betting Wolf does. too; he's always fielded a good intelligence team. No, Daley, the plant is just a pretext for Wolf to let the Widows off the leash. To let them sniff around and see how prepared we are. It wouldn’t be in the spirit of the game to ignore such an opportunity to show them what they're up against this time.”“Yes. sir, of course.” Daley nodded, acting as if he understood, although he didn‘t. Few did, who still had all their own limbs and senses. “I'll dispatch the Fire Lance at once to intercept.”
"Thank you Daley, but that won’t be necessary. Just round them up and bring them to me. I’ll be leading this mission to check out the Widows tricks first hand.” As Daley staked out, more than a bit befuddled. Pierre felt the blood begin to race within him. He flexed his right foot, Felt the pliable metal accommodate his motion. A date with the Widow – a death duel both rare and delicious. These days, combat was the only time he really felt alive…

Rolling for the Warhammer I put in 2d6,2d6 and got something really weird. In fact it doesn't even have the equal sign designating a roll.

Thought you might want to have a look before I try again.

I think I ended up rolling 8 d6 randomly, I think. I think I know now though. Just place 2 in the Number area and then d6 in the Dice area.
