Hi,

pp. 19 and 43: Charge Attacks

Replace the two sentences: "To find this damage, take the total inches the attacker traveled, divide that by 2, and multiply by the result by the value shown on the Charge Damage Table, rounding normally. The result is the amount of damage inflicted against the target unit." with the following:

"The damage from a successful charge is equal to the number of inches moved, multiplied by the charging unit’s Size value, and divided by 8—rounding all fractions normally. Thus, a Size 3 unit charging 6 inches to its target would deliver 2 points of damage on a successful attack (6 [inches] x 3 [Size] ÷ 8 = 2.25, rounded normally to 2)."

Also, replace the Charge Damage Tables on pp. 19, 43, and 166 with the following:

<<<Begin Table>>>
Charge Damage Formulas

Charge Damage* = Inches Charged x Unit Size ÷ 8

Death from Above = Charge Damage + 1

*Round all fractions normally
<<<End Table>>>

(Writer's Note: This simplified math does not actually change the results of the rule as published; it merely streamlines what had been a clunky damage-calculation process.)

Thanks,

- Herb

Errata: On p. 76 of AS, add the following sentence to the end of the second paragraph of the Air-Defense Arrow IV rules: “Resolve all damage from a successful Air-Defense Arrow IV attack during the Combat Phase in which it is fired.”

Hi,

On p. 74 of AS, insert the following between the two paragraphs for Artillery Spotters (Step 3: Determine To-Hit Modifier):

     A unit may act as a spotter for only one artillery attack at a time. Artillery attacks may not benefit from more than one artillery spotter.

Thanks,

In the Alpha Strike Special Abilities Table on page 164, the "Cargo Transport (Tons)" ability refers to page 46, where it is then not actually listed. The reference should presumably point to page 106 instead, where the ability is described (alongside "Cargo Transport (Kilotons)").

Howdy.  I'm back from vacation, and bring with me the first Alpha Strike errata release (v2.0), compiling all the changes that will appear in the second printing (including the new material backported in from the Alpha Strike Companion).  Assembled by nckestrel, it features all rulings to date.  As always, the link to the download is in the first post, and I've added it to the main webpage errata as well.

Cheers.

Alpha Strike, 2013 Edition, Print Copy

p8, first paragraph. 

Replace  "approximately 7.5m per inch"  with "approximately 15m per inch".

Justification: 1 hex = 30m = 2in in alpha strike, thus, 15m/inch.

p. 74:
If the attacker is executing a direct-fire artillery attack with an artillery cannon (ART-TC, ART-SC, or ART-LTC specials), the standard weapon range bracket modifiers will also apply to the attack’s to-hit number.
Change to:

p. 74, Indirect Fire:
Indirect Fire: Indirect fire is considered to be the standard means of firing an artillery weapon. All off-board artillery attacks and all on-board artillery attacks not using the direct fire rules notes above must apply the indirect-fire artillery attack to-hit modifier. Indirect-fire artillery can use spotters, but does not require them to make the attack (unlike indirect LRM fire). Artillery attacks using indirect fire may not target a unit unless homing rounds are used, or the attacking weapon is an artillery cannon (ART-TC, ART-SC, or ART-LTC specials). Indirect artillery attacks do not apply range band or terrain modifiers.

p. 70, after BOGGING DOWN, add a completely new section:

COMBAT OPTION: VARIABLE DAMAGE
The normal rules deliver all of the unit’s potential damage in a successful attack, but this is rarely the case in actuality, as most units carry many weapon systems that feature subtle variances in their effective range, accuracy, and damage output. To better simulate this effect, any time a unit executes a successful weapon attack, its controlling player must roll 1D6 for each damage point the unit would deliver at that range under standard Alpha Strike rules. For each die result of 3 or more, the attack delivers 1 point of damage (up to its maximum damage potential).

Quote from: example text
For example, an AWS-9M Awesome (attack values: 4/4/3) executes a successful attack against an enemy Bushwacker at its Medium range. This attack would deliver 4 points of damage—the Awesome’s normal Medium range attack value—under standard Alpha Strike rules, but the players are using Variable Damage instead, so the player rolls 4D6. The individual die results are 2, 4, 6, and 5. As three of those dice are 3 or higher, the Awesome delivers only 3 points of damage to its target.
When the
Bushwacker returns fire, its standard Alpha Strike damage value of 3 at Medium range is likewise resolved by rolling 3D6. Unfortunately for its controlling player, the rolls are 1, 1, and 2. Despite all three rolls resulting in 2 or less, the Bushwacker delivers 1 point of (minimal) damage to its opponent.

Minimal Damage: A successful attack always delivers a minimum of 1 point of damage, even if all of the Variable Damage roll results yield a 2 or less.
0* Damage: When using the Variable Damage rule, units that deal 0* damage forego their usual damage roll. Instead, its controlling player must make a 1D6 roll. If the result is 5 or higher, the attack delivers a single point of standard damage. Otherwise, the attack still hits, but delivers no damage.
If a 0* variable damage attack is successfully delivered against a unit that is underwater or operating in vacuum, and is susceptible to hull breaches, the attack will prompt a hull breach check even if it delivers no damage at all.
Physical Attacks: Variable Damage does not apply to physical attacks.

p24 includes revised tables for increasing and decreasing skill. The new tables have not been carried over to p167 where the old table still appears.

p19 (introductory rules) would appear to have the correct rules for charge and DFA attacks. When these rules are presented again in the standard rules section on p43 there are some issues:
a. Under "charge attacks" the "damage to attacker" section is actually discussing attacker damage when executing a DFA attack. The damage to attacker section from charge attacks page 19 should be inserted here instead.

b. Also consider moving the incorrectly placed "damage to attacker" section (under charge attacks on p43) to replace the "damage to attacker" section under DFA attacks on p43. This would keep it consistent with p19.  (The two "damage to attacker" sections on page 43 both discuss DFA attacks but they are not worded the same).

c. The discussion of damage in the charge attack section uses the revised charge damage formula. The revised formula has not however been carried over to the example discussion presented in italics on the bottom right of p43.

On p60, under step 7, armor thresholds are discussed and the formula for calculating the value is stated as "the aerospace unit’s starting armor value, divided by 3, and rounded down" I understand this is correct from previous errata. However toward the top left of p58, armor thresholds are also discussed and the old formula of "the aerospace unit’s starting armor value, divided by 10, and rounded up" is presented.

p43, Charge Attacks, Damage to Attacker
replace paragraph with
"Damage to Attacker: If the Charge attack is successful, the attacking unit also suffers 1 point of damage if its target is Size 3 or higher. This damage does not count as an attack by the target unit, which may attack normally during its Combat Phase."
P43, Death from Above Attack, Damage to Attacker
Replace paragraph wit
“Damage to Attacker: If the DFA attack succeeds, the attacking unit also suffers damage equal to its own Size. This damage does not count as an attack from the target unit, so the target may attack normally during its own Combat Phase. If the DFA is unsuccessful, the attacking unit suffers 1 point of damage (+1 extra damage point if the attacker’s Size is 3 or higher).”
p43, Example
"If the Vindicator charges, Brian calculates that it will deliver 2 points of damage (7 inches ÷ 2 = 3.5; 3.5 x 0.5 = 1.75, rounding normally to 2) on a successful attack"
change to
"If the Vindicator charges, Brian calculates that it will deliver 2 points of damage (7 inches x 2 Size ÷ 8 = 1.75, rounding normally to 2) on a successful attack

p58, Aerospace Armor Thresholds
"starting armor value, divided by 10"
change to
"starting armor value, divided by 3"

As there was a delay in between when the errata for the new printing of Alpha Strike was created and when the pdf came out, Adrian Gideon the tricksy hobbit managed to sneak in further corrections to the text, which will also appear in the second printing.  I've updated the errata today (2.0a) to include these additional changes, and to make sure that the errata and the new printing are consistent with one another.

The new rulings included are highlighted in red for easy locating.  They have all appeared in this thread already.

As for an entirely new version of the errata, I think that will appear in late May: I now plan to issue errata for the core books each year around that time, so that it's up to date before Origins and GenCon.

Step 1: Verify Line of Sight
After the "if less than one-third..considered to be blocked." add
"Conversely, if more than two-thirds of the attacking unit's miniature is blocked from seeing the target miniature by solid terrain, the line of sight is blocked. The blocking of line of sight works both directions, if the attacker is not blocked from seeing the target, the target is not blocked from seeing the attacker. And if the attacker is blocked form seeing the target, the target is blocked from seeing the attacker."

"DropShip"
to
"Airborne DropShip"

under Miscellaneous Modifiers, add a line

Note: Grounded Spheroid DropShips are always immobile, getting the Attacker is Immobile/Standing Still modifier when attacking, and the immobile target movement modifier when being attacked.   Grounded Aerodyne DropShips have a choice or standing still or moving, as with a standard ground unit.

p42, Step 7A: Roll for Motive Systems Damage
remove "roll 1D6. On a result of 1 through 4, there is no motive system damage.
If the 1D6 roll is 5 or 6,"
So that it reads "..is damaged by an attack, roll 2d6 and consult the Motive Systems Damage Table,..."
