The Virtue of Audacity - I really like it - it has the potential to really even the odds vs nasty monsters or powerful enemy lords and heroes. How does it work against an enemy like a chariot who may have different strength levels (A High Elf Lion Chariot for example - the Lions and the chariot itself are S5, triggering the effect of the Virtue - but the crew are only S4 (before modifiers), which doesn't trigger the Virtue)?
Hmmm...I don't know good question. My guess is you wouldn't benefit from the virtue becuas eyou'd count as attacking the crew the whole time. After all they're the ones controlling the chariot. But that's just my interpretation. I'm just as confused as you.
That's not entirely true. You roll against the highest weapon skill of either the crew or the creatures. This is of course because a chariot itself cannot have a WS. You roll to wound against the chariot though (which as a whole is still counted as a single unit) which seems to me since you are attacking the chariot, then you would use the chariots S rating (which in most cases is 5).
The Virtue of Audacity in such a case works.
At any rate, when selecting a characteristic to test upon, you use the highest available to that unit...
Good question and it works. My daughter plays HE and I have fought her several times with my all knight army. Bretonnias have some nice virtues. The key is having the right one in the right place at the right time. Sometime I am able to pull it off.
