Really basic power attack question.

Can any monster do any power attack, or only those listed on the model (power slam, power stomp, etc.)?  My reading seems to leave it open, but I can see it being limitted.

Any monster with a power-attack stat can perform a power attack — powers that make certain power attacks better for that monster are just incentives to use that attack more often. It was weird deja-vu for me because the first time I read the rules I wondered the same thing.

So the various power attack skills are just a bonus to p-dice for those attacks, then.  Cool.

Thanks for the reply.

sorry, but where do you see specific power attacks on the model?

You don't.

 

What Mike is talking about is certain skills that increase a power attacks ability (Not all monsters have these skills). For instance, Super Stomp makes it so that every enemy unit hit and every building destroyed gives you an extra p-die. Say you make a stomp power attack and hit 2 enemy units and 1 building; normally you would get just one power die for each (3 p-die total). However, super stomp gives you an extra p-die for every unit and building destruction, so now each of those units reaps 2 pdie and so does the building, therefore doubling your p-die amount gained (New total= 6 p-die).

Regular power attacks found in the rulebook can be performed by any monster so long as they have a Power stat.
