In multiple combat only units that are no longer engaged in combat after any broken units are broken may pursue. To illustrate, units A & B are engaged front to front against unit X. If unit X wins the combat, but only unit A fails it's break test, unit X cannot pursue as it is still in combat w...

No. Any character that would be subject to KB on foot remains subject to it, regardless if how they're mounted.

I've found the flaming attacks banner to be a great investment for executioners for only 10pts. Combined with the high strength attacks, this makes the unit the bane of knights (cause fear), flammable monsters (this is the only unit that has reliably fell Treemen for me), or regenerating nasties lik...

Anyone tried a Pact with VC?

What about template spells that hit everything underneath it? No, the rules for monsters & handlers indicate the handlers are ignored for most purposes and all shooting is resolved against just the monster. You can't even attack the handlers in close combat. Any template attack rolls only once ...

One more, can the Lore of the Heavens spells "Windblast" or "Let the Four Winds Blow" be used to push an opposing caster from an arcane fulcrum?

Storm of Magic Rules Questions

Just got finished reading the rules for the Storm of Magic, and I had a couple related questions: 1) Only a single wizard model can occupy an Arcane Fulcrum, meaning that any Sorceress in a unit moving to occupy the Fulcrum would have to leave her unit and thereby cannot utilize the Sacrificial Dagg...

You are confusing fluff and rules. Just because something makes sense storywise doesn't make it the rule. Under the rules for both Malekith and Morathii it specifies that they use Dark Magic. As there is no rule allowing them to know another lore additionally (I don't know if any model in the game c...

The list of lores on Page 62 does not set a rule for any model in the army. If it did it would be listed as a specific special rule, just like "Eternal Hatred" and "Druchii Sorcery" on the same page. There is no "Dark Elf Wizard" rule. The lores available for a model ar...

More Balanced Armies Under the Storm of Magic

I was wondering how people's experiences were with how competitive each army is now under the Storm of Magic? Are, Wood Elves for example, more viable now?

The FAQ changed the item.

"Change to “Treat the bearer as a Level 1 Wizard, who may use the Lore of Fire, Lore of Shadow or Lore of Death. He may not attempt to channel. If he ever casts a spell with irresistible force he must roll D6+1 rather than 2D6 on the Miscast table.”"

WoC Combo: Book of Secrets + Spell Familiar?

As updated by the WoC errata/FAQ, an Aspiring Champion becomes a Lvl 1 wizard which knows a single spell from Shadow, Death, or Fire. I'm assuming that this makes him a wizard for all purposes unless otherwise specified (he can't channel, for instance), so would he be able to take an arcane item, su...

When dealing with the treeman, I find my best results come from execs with Banner of the Eternal Flame. Secondarily, you can debuff its toughness with the Lore of Shadow.

What lore is your SS using? Mine takes shadow, and I keep my Dreadlord general nearby to take advantage of the lore attribute if need be. I find that my opponents avoid charging a debuffed unit into an 8 deep unit of steadfast spears with a heavy combat character waiting in the wings to tag in.

How often does your opponent let those kinds of units get into combat with Execs . Even so, 16 isn't very big... Most of those units seem like they would do some very heavy damage before the Execs got a chance to swing, though the damage will presumably be very good once it does. I always wait to d...

I'm afraid I have to disagree strongly regarding execs. I run a unit of 16, 3x6, with the banner for flaming attacks. This unit is my most reliable for dealing with knights (I face Bretonnians often), Wood Elf treemen/treekin, the Skaven Hellpit Abomination, and the popular regenerating Grave Guard ...
