all right so if my genestealer attacks a wraithlord even if i roll a 6 for rending it wont have any effect because his strength 4 can't damage a toughness of 8 right?
Strength 4 is only unable to wound Toughness 8 when one is forced to use the Strength/Toughness table. However, Rending bypasses that entirely, so the Strength of the attack is never even considered. Basically: Genestealers can indeed wound Wraithlords.Originally Posted by Jfrai
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.

Rending = Automatic Wound no armor save.
So basically, when you attack Big Ugly with the genies unless you get a 6 to hit, you aren't going to do anything to him. Exception: If you upgraded their strength, then you need a 6 to wound.
Basically any unit with with strength 2 or more and rending can wound anything in the game, even a Landraider!

It's another one of gws great fun times.
By the strict wording, you can't hurt it, even with rending. Mind you most will play it as the others here have said, rending ignores the table, but if you really wanted to make friends, you could always point them to that section of the bgb, and show them that the GS strength is not high enough to hurt you.
But by the rules, you are correct.
