Hey guys, question- I'm assuming Castellans overrides bike cap makes bikes troops?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 28 2017 13:35
I would say bikes in a castellans with a bike character are troops instead of FA
but I can see why people might disagree
old school style psychic tests and mortal wounds

i like that they've confirmed mortal
i'm less liking anything about 1 attempt per spell per turn
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 28 2017 14:16
yeah, seems less tactical since you cant throw more dice at an important power to force it through
but it eliminates batteries, which i like

Ugh... I hoped Invulnerable saves were being eliminated. They were one of the more annoying additions from the 2nd to 3rd transition, and slowed the game down almost as much as AP replacing saving throws sped the game up.
Perhaps they will be much less common than in 3rd-7th, as they're giving more wounds to many more models.

i'm willing to bet invulns are like FNP, on top of your armor save, not instead of

Psychic phase = AoS magic now, nice. And mortal wound are being brought over.
I wonder if pre-mesuring will still be allowed
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 28 2017 15:09
i hope so, that was one of the most frustrating things in 4th/5th

Hope what?

Mortal Wounds were already a thing from many 5-6-7th Psychic powers. I hope these are the only common source "no interaction" mechanics.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 28 2017 15:12
in AoS even mortal can be negated
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Apr 28 2017 15:12
Oh, yeah @GenWilhelm.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 28 2017 15:13
so it's not like it's a no interaction thing
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Apr 28 2017 15:14
Yeah mortal wound can be negated. But I don't think invulnerable will that common any more now.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 28 2017 15:14
how do you negate mortal in AoS?
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Apr 28 2017 15:14
A rule will state you can on x+ roll
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 28 2017 15:15
oh, a special rule like FNP?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 28 2017 15:15
usually 5+ or 6+ - yeah
savage orc tatoos do that
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Apr 28 2017 15:15
Like for archaon I can on a dice roll of 5 or 6.
Oddly enough the negation rule for that usually say on a dice roll of x, not x+. Like how I have it worded above. So a 7 would fail oddly enough, lol. But I've never been able to get any bonuses to those rolls.either.
Heh
