Welcome to Librarium Online!
Just a few questions to clear up some bits I'm confused about with the daemons army book:
I've seen a lot of discussion about whether master of sorcery can be used to get all the lore of tzeentch spells, is this the case? If so couldn't heralds of tzeentch with this also technically use all the spells from the other daemonic lores? I'm assuming not...
What does the battle standard do for daemons (bar the effects of any magic banners)? I'd assume it lets them re-roll instability tests but it doesnt really seem to make this clear in the section in the army book on this, especially as daemons don't take normal break tests...
What are the rules and stats for discs of tzeentch? The army list says tzeentch heralds can ride them, but there dont actually seem to be any stats for them anywhere. I know the blue scribes ride one but they just have one profile for them and the disc...
1) No, he can't use the other daemonic lores. The gift gives him access to any of the 8 lores from the rulebook or his original lore, and since this is only available to Tzeentch daemons, there is no way he can use the daemonic lores of Nurgle or Slaanesh.
2) The battle standard allows the owning player to re-roll break tests. An instability test is a special kind of break test, but a break test nonetheless. Also, this is clearly stated on page 30 of the army book.
3) The rules and stats for the disc are on page 85. As for the blue scribes, the way the book presents it right now is that they are their own self-contained model. They don't have a mount--although that's the way they are represented in the fluff, and the way I plan to model them. They fly and have unit strength 3, and that's it. No disc for the scribes unless the upcoming FAQ errata's them one.
No, I don't have any wool.
in the book i own(italian version ) it clearly states that "the blue scribes AND their disc are represented by the combined profile shown above".
maybe there'll be an errata for earlier versions of the book
