    What is the best armor class you can get?

    I always thought 0+ was the best armor save you could get until tonight. I played a Lizard man list with a mounted Saurus Oldblood who had an armor class of -1 (And a 4+ ward save!) Man was he hard to kill!

    Is -1 the best armor save you can get in warhammer?

    BrB page 30.
    To sum up, in theory there is no limit to what a model can get, but when you roll the save you must always score 2 or better to save.
    So if a character had -1 As it means he could save a shot from a great cannon with a 6+ save; but even if he was shot from a shortbow, a roll of 1 would still mean he gets wounded.
    It's better, it's shiny, it's warped...it's Chaos.

    There is no best save in theory.

    But I believe -2+ is the best you can get, coincidentally also from Lizardmen.

    I know this is only an example, but keep in mind Cannons allow no armour save for the shot, regardless.

    Howvever, another example of S10, is a Bloodthirster with Awesome Strength, so it can happen.

    I dont think it is:
    Scaly-Scin (5+)
    Light Armor
    Enchanted Shield
    Quetzl
    ColdOne

    And you have a -1+ save. Am I missing something?

    I think a -1+ save is bad enough... plus a 4+ ward save to attacks above str5. damn near impossible without the correctly equipped hero.

    I'd say only killable with something that denies magic properties, or with an old-fashioned-always-reliable killing blow (usually 25 pts for the armies that can buy it)
    It's better, it's shiny, it's warped...it's Chaos.

    Just remember that you get NO ARMOUR SAVES whatsoever against KB *eyes up Wardancers*

    So yes, these super-lizzies-of-doom are in fact beatable.

    either that or just equip a hero with a great fang or something similar and ignore that armour save. 4+ ward save is much more manageable than a crazy armour save AND a ward save.
