    Having just walloped Skaven with a Khalida list I love her.

    My archers seem to roll 5,6 more than statistically reasonable so for each one to be a wound is just SO good.

    Yes she costs a lot but autosmiting and poisoned wounds......wow

    She is also handy in a scrap and causes Terror

    I suffered a bit with only 2 LP and a TP but it didn't matter in this case.

    Khalida will probably be even more use against high toughness armies as our puny arrows bounce off dwarves.

    Poisoned attacks

    It was my understanding that poisoned attacks only occur on the to hit roll of a 6, not a 5 & 6.

    Can someone confirm this?

    If you pay 2pts/model that has bows you can poison on 5's as well.

    so that's archers, light horsemen and chariots.

    Worth the points in my book just to see their faces when my 16 archers per block roll 5 5/6's in Autosmiting from Khalida, and then watch the archers do the same again in normal shooting

    If it's as you say then that is insanely good.

    However Khalida only says that shooting attacks count as poisonend attacks, not that rolls of a 5 & 6 count as poisoned.

    Compare this with skinks with blowpipes who also have poisonend shooting attacks. they don't auto wound on a 4,5 or 6 just a natural 6.

    All shooting attacks.

    So all shooting attacks by archers are poisoned.

    All 5/6 hit.

    Each hit is poisoned.

    By chance I had my book on me (sad I know)

    Khalida says "All shooting counts as poisoned attacks", just like our tomb scorpion has poisoned attacks, just like skinks with blowpipes have poisoned attacks but those two examples still need 6's.

    I think this is down to interpretation.

    If you're correct then +2 points a model is steal for never having to roll to wound!

    To sanity is weak: if eldar wonderland is correct, the answer to your question is a resounding yes.

    When something sounds too good to be true, it usually isn't the case no matter how much we would like it.

    I'm sticking with the group that says it's on the rolls of 6, and 6 only, that the poison kicks in just like in the main rules.

    If I'm wrong - well, I got Khalida all painted up and ready to go, to bad I lack the archers (only 30 so far).

    You're just mis-interpreting the rules a little.
    All shots become poisoned. The poison rules require you to roll a 6 to hit.
    Think of it this way... all shots from a Skink blowpipe are poisoned, but they done auo wund if they hit on a 4 do they?


    Anyway, to add to the thread itself, Khalida (although i have never used her myself) is a fantastic Spc. Char.

    Oooops.

    Having had the seed of doubt placed in my mind I have re-read the rules and army book.

    Looks like I was a little over-enthusiastic with the poisoned attacks.

    I'll go for 6's to poison and 5's to hit.

    Strange thing is I play against another guy who plays TK sometimes and didn't question my uber-poisoning attacks.

    EDIT: Khalida is still too cool for words though - 420 points well spent in my eyes.
