    Deamonic Armour

    Heya,

    Just a really quick question. My friend is new to Chaos and is using something that is called Daemonic Armour which gives his Deamon Prince a 2+ Invunerable save - is this correct?

    This is his Deamon Prince; I got this list in a email.


    "It’s a daemon price with

    Demonic armour, resilience, strength, visage, stature, undivided mark, a kai gun, and servo arm.



    Gets +1 attack +2 strength + 2 toughness and a 2+ invulnerable save."

    My friend is new to Chaos ...
    I think that sums it up. The Chaos codex is difficult and complex, compounded by the fact that it's full of holes and badly written. Tell your friend to read his codex very thoroughly.

    It isn't an invulnerable save.

    The rest is also.. partially true.
    The extra attack is a powerfist attack at a p.fist's initiaitve (although at S10).
    The toughness is plus 2, but only +1 for instant death.
    The guy is a monstrous creature, so can be picked out by fire like a carnifex or tank.

    Don't tell him that his BS is REDUCED, making him the same as a guardsman. heh heh.

    It's not just that it's complex, some people see its complexity and try to exploit things. Either that or they're ignorant.

    Karmoon is right, it isn't 2+ invulnerable. It's the same as SMurf Artificer Armour.

    Are you allowed to post statlines that have been amended by D.Gifts? Technically you've made it yourself, in the same way as creating your own units. I won't now, just in case, but I think it would be beneficial.

    daemonic armour gives you an armour save (as mentioned before).

    to get an invulnerable save your friend needs to buy the daemonic aura upgrade (check codex:chaos for how that works and what the required dice roll is for that).
    Shut up and play.

    Alright, but there IS one way to get a 2+ invulnerable save with Daemonic Armor.
    If your friend has his HQ on a bike and gives him Daemonic Armor, and TURBO BOOSTS,

    BAM! instant 2+ invul.

    When turbo boosting bikes the bikers 3+ armour save becomes a 3+ invulnerable correct? My friend told me that that was not possible and the invulnerable save had to be a 5+ so can i have some clarification on this?

    Correcto, when turbo boosting, what ever the save of the rider/biker is, becomes invulnerable.
    SO, a HQ wearing daemonic armor turbo boosting will in fact have a 2+ invul save. right nasty.

    Aren't servo arms reserved for Iron Warriors? I know they're in the main armory but I've never heard of any non-IW force taking them.
