Re: Terrorgheist and Cloak of Twilight

Let me look at this, with just common sense. The shriek is an attack done in the shooting fase. So it would be a shooting attack. !! so stand and shooting with crossbows isn't a shooting attack, since it is done in the movement phase? The rules are clear its a special attack which can be done in th...

This also starts the fight often of that benefit of Khainites in unit giving the non Khainite stubborn for having the BSB there. I'd say yep to that too although purely RAW it would be no, as a mixed unit with a khainite model is not a khainite unit and a model in a unit is not a unit in and of its...

if one states that the weapon is a weapon of type X rather then a hand weapon (x being beastmaster scourge, great weapon, spear, lance,...) then I do believe it is otherwise stated. And I doubt anyone with a lick of sense would argue otherwise.

you're making a mistake with the stomps and thunderstomps, the other tricksters shard makes all models in base contact re-roll ward saves, it does not make all damage caused by your attacks to have their ward saves re-rolled. although it will rarely matter (except for deamons, phoenix guard and the ...

But if you absolutely need to take 1 guy or 2 guys out to reduce the unit (say below US5) then the RBT may offer a more reliable outcome.

the beastmaster scourge is not a hand weapon. handweapons are the weapons that you get basic. otherwise all mundane weapons could give you a parry save (but its only with a hand weapon). hand weapons are explained somewhere in the weapon section.
