Had a couple of questions after playing a game tonight.
1. A hero/lord mounted on a monster (like a manticore). Can they ever claim a "look out sir!" from something like a cannon ball?
2. Choas warshrine. Does it buff the whole unit?
3. The greedy fist. How does it work in conjunction with a spell like Fate of bunja? Will the enemy wizard hit by the spell loose lvls based off the number of hits, or is he "hit" but the spell once and only looses a lvl?

1) a hero can claim look out sir on a 2+ if situated in a unit with 5 or more models of the same troop type. Since monsters can't join units, that's a no. A hero can also claim a look out sir on a 4+ if within 3" (I think it's 3) of a unit with 5 or more models of the same troop type. I'm pretty sure monster/rider combos still just count as monsters, and I don't think there are any monster rank and file units, so this is also a pretty resounding no. If you have questions as to troop type, check the charts in the back of the BRB for each army.

2) Yes. Yes the whole unit, even characters in the unit.
3) Include the relevant text on greedy fist and fate of bjuna please.
I don't have the books in from of me so I'll do my best to word them correctly.
Fate of bunja is the #5 spell from lore of death. " direct damage spell. Choose a target within 24'. It takes 2d6 minus toughness hits. Wounds on 2+, no armour saves."
Greedy fist. (part that matters) "... If the wearer of the greedy fist hits a model with a wizard level, they loose a level and a random spell."
I think we need a little more from the description of the Greedy Fist, item type would be nice to know. At the moment I'd say you don't lose anything as it sounds like it is meant for Close Combat and not for magic, but I'd go as far as to say that it also works for shooting, because they actually roll to hit, whereas magic auto-hits, once it is cast and hasn't been dispelled. If the Greedy Fist is an arcane item, then I'd clearly be wrong and it would work in conjunction with magic.
That means Sir Isaac Newton is the deadliest-son-of-a-bitch in space!
Pretty much what he said, if it refers to hits, it generally means close combat and sometimes ranged, but hardly ever magic.
That being said, if the spell says it causes hits... I dunno. I'd have to see the text on the item. Where is it from?
The item is from the ogre codex. Its a talisman. The spell causes the hits so my guess would be that it doesn't work the way I originally thought.
It covers a ranged attack, but not about magical attacks. (last time i looked)
