Ok, this topic was probably already adressed but I'm new to this army thread so I'll ask anyway.
Could anybody clarify the oracle of eternity rule on Fateweaver? It's so badly worded that I could pull 5 different interpretations of the rule.
Imperial Guard: 3000 pts
Chaos Daemons: 1000 pts
it's important to note he needs to actually take a wound before being forced to take a Ld test. Another consideration that's not specified, does the entire friendly unit have to be within 6" to benefit, or just any part of it? That makes a huge difference in the viability of Fateweaver lists.
well cover me in spikes and call me khornate, that'll serve me right for skipping the first pages when in search of the 'meat' of the rules
There was at one point much consternation around the Ork Big Mekk's Force Field because the rules stated that it took effect "if a unit has any models within 6" " which in 4th ed was, I believe, the exception. not such a terrible thing with 10 pink horrors, but trailing a 30 boy mob back half way across the board, all of them getting a save was considered downright annoying.
That must have been the source of my confusion, so thanks for that!
To get my rather nostalgic rear end back on topic, Fateweaver is a bit of a tricky situation. He's a whopping 333 pts, and can be worth it, and sure he will save 88% of absolutely anything you throw at him (for comparison a 2+ invulnerable only saves 83.3%), but one wound followed by a fubbed Ld save and there's a huge portion, and in the case of Fateweaver lists the linchpin, of your army gone in a flash. A 10 man tac squad rapid firing on fateweaver has a 3% chance of chasing him off in one round. Never you mind him getting caught up in a big pile of genestealers or boyz.
To sum it up, he tends to exemplify the chaos daemon's vulnerability to massed fire, but is, I bet, one of the most resilient models in the game. Of course the Great Unclean One you put next to him for horde countercharges/aura of decay will give him a run for his survivability money, but hey. No one's perfect
Also 2 psi cannon will completely ruin his day.
