    Wizards and Armor

    So...I'm a pretty seasoned pro with 40k but only a little bit of a dabbler in Fantasy but with the re-release of the VC army book i'm considering getting into it. I know in previous editions of Fantasy wizards couldn't cast spells while wearing armor but I can find no such rule in the the current rulebook. Is it still in effect? Perhaps only for certain wizards?

    Peace

    There is no such rule in 7th Ed WHFB. (Of course if you check the rules for ethereal movement on p48 of the VC book it's not entirely clear the authors of VC had moved to 7th ed yet... /wink)

    It's now passively enforced, the army books don't let wizards buy armor. If you have a legal way to create a model with armor that knows spells, you are free to cast.

    Now, if a model can take mundane armour as a wargear option, then he may also select magic armour. that is the only restriction, casting ability is not affected.

    Could you explain this to me please? Have only recently come back to fantasy and I'm not 100% certain what you mean here.

    He makes a reference to movement being hindered by the Pit of Shades spell. The 7th ed version of the spell does not have any movement penalties or related effects associated with it.

    Ah, of course. Many thanks - I haven't come across this spell yet seeing as I play Woodies and Brets mainly and am just starting VC.

    Well, i believe it comes into play with the new vampires being wizards AND being able to wear armor. I wondered that actually, as i'm not a huge WHFB buff.
    Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
