Tonight I fought the Dark Elves, he used an assassin with the 'cry of war' for the gifts of khaine... It frightens the enemy so it will lose a WS for that combat. And there is where my problem began What can frighten a Daemon?
Is this an oversight in the DE armybook and they forgot to include 'units immune to psy are not effected' or do our daemons really get affraid of a secret name of khaine...
How do you guys think about it? Or is there a FAQ or update about it somewhere? I couldn't find it though...
Take the Flame Cannon. It's not flaming, despite what logic says.
It's no different here. DoC are born of the fears of mortals, so it would be like us humans being scared of laminin, or Bill Gates being scared of money (haha, see what I did there?), or Dwarfs being scared of cheese.
That's the problem though. Apparently this skill says nothing about ItP.
The skill above it, hand of khaine, does say ItP are not effected... So I'd figure that they did think about it when they made that rule...
My gut says it is an oversight but my gut can't change the rules hehe
Time for an FAQ update I reckon.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
When I went and actually, you know, read the rulebook, I think it's easy to conclude that ItP isn't part of the picture. "Freezes enemies with horror" is part of the italicized fluff description. It's a simple leadership based test with no exceptions noted. Demons take the test as would anything else.
Yeah guess you're right David, I do see it more and more that the fluff is far 'stronger' than that the rules actually make the units/models.
In this case the fluff of ItP (and daemon fluff) and the fluff of the Cry of War contradict each other. Do think that GW should at least keep in mind their fluff vs. rules.
Same with a battle between two Nurgle armies... The GUO are supposed to be infected with every germ and disease known... Yet with the gifts like Pestilent Mucus they can kill each other, as long as they keep failing a T test.
The fluff says as they get wounded great boils with rancid mucus etc burst and infect the enemy... Course you can say they got different strands of the diseases but for a creature of disease and decay that shouldn't have any big effect
Sorry, but I don't even know how this has come up - the DE book makes no exceptions, so it must affect Daemons. Fluff isn't a rule.
