Destroyed! The gun explodes with a thunderous noise. Shards of metal and wood fly in all directions, leaving a hole in the ground and a cloud of black acrid smoke.

The war machine is destroyed.


Malfunction. The charge fails to ignite and the barrel must be emptied before the war machine can fire again.

The war machine therefore cannot fire this turn or in the controlling player's next turn. Either turn the war machine model round or place a marker of some kind to indicate this.


May Not Shoot. A minor error has occurred, perhaps the fuse was not properly set or the crewmen mishandled the loading procedure.

The war machine is unharmed and can shoot as normal again in the controlling player's next turn.
