Lance (Weapon Quality)

Lance weapons fire focused beams of devastating energy, piercing armour with ease. Weapons with the Lance Quality have a variable Penetration value that is dependent on the accuracy of each shot. When a target is hit by a weapon with the Lance Quality, increase the weapon’s Penetration value by its base value once for each Degree of Success achieved by the attacker. For example, if a Dark Eldar Kabalite Warrior hit a Leman Russ Battle Tank with a Dark Lance and achieved 3 Degrees of Success, the Dark Lance would have a Penetration value of 20—the base Penetration value of the Dark Lance of 5 plus 15, 5 for each of the three Degrees of Success—for that shot. Note that this means that a weapon with the Lance Quality always has at least a Penetration value of 5 if its wielder hits the target, as a hit represents a single Degree of Success.
