I have read over the rules for Gift of Chaos over and over and I have found that it is NOT a shooting attack (multiple gifts a turn woo!) and it does NOT allocate a wound if successful.. but now here is the problem.
first ill present my easier question..
Since gift of chaos is NOT A SHOOTING SPELL, does that mean my apponent can say "oh no you can't shoot my chaplain(or other) and instead im allocating it to one of these crappy marines" The rule for doing this only applies to SHOOTING attacks/spells,that means it MUST hit the unit i picked and blobify it, also since the spell does not allocate a wound nor classify as even a hit, they CAN'T take a invuln save or allocate it to another model? (NO IF'S AND'S OR BUT'S)?
"for those who dislike Tl;Dr": since gift of chaos is not a shooting skill, nor does it allocate wounds, does my aponent get to choose who gets blobbified? (the rules for shooting/attacking groups, as well as wound allocating only allow this)?
I need verification on this, opinions or a helpful notice would be nice.
now for the second question (Tau players read this)
A friend of mine is getting into tau and is flaunting about his "OP" shield drones Where he has shoved them into a team of 2 broadsides (4 of the lil buggers ) Yes i know that hits are taken normally (shared toughness so thats easy) but wounds can be allocated to the drones if wanted. I do believe that says WOUNDS. Gift of chaos does NOT INFLICT WOUNDS.
I tried to blobbify one of his broadsides in a recent game and he threw a tantrum over the rule that he can put any wounds on the drones for they're invuln. (he was mad enough that he already noticed DP's have eternal warrior and his railguns had to go through four 4+invuln wounds)
Eventually he gave an ultimatum ("EITHER I GET TO BLOBBIFY MY DRONE OR IM LEAVING AND I GET TO HIT ONE OF YOUR UNITS WITH A HAMMER"). I stole the hammer from him before he could do so, also he will not play with me until i confide to his rules.
any Tau players (or anyone experienced with this rule) care to enlighten my findings with PROPER verification will be welcomed.
COME HAVE A TASTE OF THE CHAOS GODS, A GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING..err..blobbing.
And on the account vs Tau, you would be correct. It does not cause a wound. But once again, if it doesn't target the specific model then he can choose which to kill off.
I don't think you can say which model, in 99% of cases unless it's a single model on their own, the opponent chooses which model to remove, the only exceptions I know of are with people such as Sgt. Telion who can pick off a single model of his choice, and there's another if I remember correctly in one of the suplements.
Gift of Chaos refers to models. It targets models and it affects models.
It is not a psychic shooting attack because it is used at the beginning of the turn and can be used whilst in close combat. It is not, in fact, a shooting attack at all; it's a psychic power that targets a single model of your (the Chaos player's) choosing.
Since it does not inflict a wound, wound allocation need not apply (which it wouldn't anyway, since you're targeting a model and not a unit) and no saves can be taken. It is a very scary spell, especially since it has a 33% chance of knocking out any MEQ model.

Cool. Thanks for the verification ze_poodle, now im gonna try this out some time.
and im sure it won't be too hard to find people
Indeed, ze_poodle has it entirely correct. He cannot choose to allocate it anywhere, as it is not a wound. Besides, the power specifically says that you pick a [B]model[/B to target. Furthermore, as mentioned above, even if he could allocate it to say, a shield drone, he still could not take a save(of any kind), as again it does not cause a wound, and saves can only be taken against wounds.

my thoughts exactly.
I just needed confirmation from other players and I received just that
If anyone know of a battle report using this delicious ability care to point me in its direction?
What's even worse is if you have the Mark of Tzeentch, you could actually use Gift twice per turn.

WAIT... lets back this up a bit...
He tried to hit one of your units with a hammer? And after that he has the nerve to complain and refuse to play you?
