I have been looking at the new rulebokk for a couple of days now and have seen the rules for warmachines which says that any shooting or missle (magic included), target the warmachine, and not the crew so the toughness of the warmachine is used but the crew still get to use their armour save aswell, which doesnt make sense.
BUT, the cauldron of blood counts as a warmachine meaning all hits affect the actual cauldron, BUT the cauldron rules state that any hits on the cauldron are ignored, and the crew cant be hit because of the new so, the cauldron is INVINCIBLE against shooting and magic missile, so the only way to kill (for the most part) is in combat.
BUT units can only have six models fight against the crew and the hag whose is always striking first and has the potential to have of 6 attacks (rune of khaine) with manbane poison as well as 2 crewmembers attacking all with ahtred and a 4+ ward save, so even in combat the its hard to kill
PLEASE someone correct me other wise this is unbeliveably stupid, list ideas from friends have come up a block of 30-50 executioners witht the banner of always strike first, with a cauldron of blood either side, and a charachter witht the ring of hotek in the middle of the unit, and then millions of crossbowmen assassains and bolt throwers
correct me somehow to stop this happening
