Hey everyone. I have a quick question about Force weapons on Librarians. I know that if the opponent fails an invulnerable save it doesnt give only one wound but it kills the person outright if I pass the psychic test. But is this only allowed on one person in the enemy squad or does it effect all units in the enemy squad that have invulnerable saves. thanks for the help

It's just one model only.
Ex: The Librarian is in B2B with a Hive Tyrant, inflicts a wound, and then passes the psychic test. The Tyrant dies, period.
But, if you're going against a squad with more than one model with more than one wound, you can only do it to one of them because you can only perform one psychic test per turn.
But then again, if you're going to be fighting against a squad of 1 wound models anyway, theres no real reason to bother with the force weapons ability. The special ability of the weapon can only insta-kill one model, and if there are no IC or multi-wound models in the close combat, the Rune weapon is still a power weapon, and will likely kill 2 or 3 of the enemies anyway. Taking the psychic test in such an instance is dangerous because it creates a chance in which your Librarian may suffer Perils of the Warp. I would recommend avoiding using the ability of the force weapon for that reason unless you are in B2B with a multi-wound model.
