Hey there, this may be reading a little too literal but Morathi's sword, The Darksword, reads "Hand weapon. Each wound inflicted on an enemy character or champion (after saves etc.) also deducts 1 from the models S, A and T for the remainder of the game. If any of these is reduced to 0 the enemy is removed as a casualty."
I wouldnt normally question this but it hasnt specified close combat! If you look at Blood Armour as another example it specifies close combat. Chillblade specifies hits from Chillblade, Sword of Ruin specifies hits from Sword of Ruin. Executioners axe specifies close combat. Not intending to twist the rules in my favour, just wondering if this is the case or if its intended? Would be scary (and a little unfair i guess) if Morathi's spells caused that to happen too!
What is it with Dark Elf players and needing to win ALL THE TIME, and needing to rip every last thing they can out of their already brilliant list.
Of course its just from the blade, thats why its a rule listed under the blade.
I dont normally get annoyed liuke this but you're really trying to bend the rules there...
You misunderstand me, I just wanted to clarify it, not abuse it. So at your comment the return is - What is it with people who presume we need to win all the time and are not actually interested in learning how our units/items work?
The post was made light hearted and a genuine question, I only joined forums yesterday I think and I'm still trying to find my ground. No need to snap so harshly mate.
Yes stratovarion is correct, if a bit rude, in his response. Since the rule is in the weapon description it only applies to that weapon. In stratovarion's defense(a little bit) there are quite a few rules lawyers that try to squeeze every last advantage out of wording issues that they can. Unfortunately, it also seems to me that they are most prolific in the most powerful army books at the time. I think it is because that is the mindset of the player. The player trying to twist the rules to their advantage will naturally gravitate to the most powerful books as well.
Thanks for the info
Fair enough on some of these rules abuser but I did specify in my first post that I wasn't trying to twist the rules and was just curious of to whether was intended or mistake though ^^
Nevermind, I guess I'll just hold back about asking cheesey things from now on! Shame because most my opponents do things like that on me >.<
so the conclusion is that Dark Elf players make good lawyers?
Nope, rules lawyers make good lawyers. It just so happens that since the Dark Elf book is strong right now, the rules lawyers tend to gravitate towards it. Please don't lump us all into that category.so the conclusion is that Dark Elf players make good lawyers?
Firstly I owe an apology for my response to the question - I clearly misjudged the tone of the question and as such responded inapproppriately.
I stand by the fact that all you Dark Elf players are nasty and unpleasant people but as a High Elf player I have to think that...
I have only played against 2 Dark Elf players a couple of times each and both of them have been rulebenders to the max, but I was wrong to heap all Dark Elf players in like that.
You're all BAD PEOPLE though... stupid dark elves...
No problem at all, everyone is entitled to an opinion after all ^^
Thats very noble of you to apologise, nice to see, and thanks for doing so....high elven pansie
The rulebenders are the ones who just play to win at all costs so they use any advantage(real or imaginary) to squeeze more out of their list. Unfortunately they begin by choosing the most powerful books at the time to get the most out of their army. So in the current environment you will probably see the most rules lawyers playing Dark Elves, Daemons, and Vampire Counts.have only played against 2 Dark Elf players a couple of times each and both of them have been rulebenders to the max
Most of us don't play like that and we just like the army(look, style, fluff, etc..). I had Dark Elves before the new book when they were one of the least competitive books out there. I like the playstyle and some of the fluff. I also play Daemons but I played them before they were even their own book. I had a 40K Chaos Space Marine army with as few Space Marines as I could and the rest daemons even before the new edition of 40K. So, most of us are nice people who just happen to have the good fortune of playing one of the stronger army books at this time. Give it some time and I am sure some of the new releases will will leave us wondering why anyone ever thought of our lists as cheesy.
