  • The new Black Legion Supplement.

Rules Lawyer

  • This comes to us via Adam,

So reading over the new BL supplement, there’s an item that gives a pretty nasty Nova, which made me go back and read the Nova rules, and I found something very ambiguous:

“A nova power automatically targets and hits all enemy units within the psychic power’s maximum range, regardless of line of sight, being locked in combat, intervening models/terrain and so on. Otherwise, a nova is treated like a shooting attack, and indeed will have a profile like a shooting attack.”

it’s the “being locked in combat” part.  This doesn’t explain if it’s talking about the enemy unit specifically being in combat, or if it’s talking about the restriction of casting Witchfire powers while in combat, or both.  Originally, I thought it was just about targeting enemies, but reading it again, it starts talking about enemy units, then goes on to talk about the attributes normally required for shooting “within range, not locked in combat, needs LOS, etc.”

To me it looks really ambiguous, and just because it’s been played one way before doesnt make it correct, besides who used nova powers before anyhow?

  • This comes to us via Dylan M. Does azraels invulnerable save of 4++ get conferred to a transport he is embarked in?
