Welcome to Librarium Online!
i was having a flick through my mates codex and saw that the avatar had a weapon called the wailing doom so i had a look in the war gear and it said that it ignores armor saves and the model can role 2d6 for armor pentiration then flicking back to the entry its a monsteros creature which does the same thing
whats the point of the wailing doom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!& #33;!!!!!!!!

[16:19] <@Alzer> Arky's right though
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> I know he is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> He usually is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> Sometimes it's intentional.
[00:01] <+zubus> i love you, ya skirt wearin nothern monkey! ^_^
I've never found a description of what the Wailing Doom does. It's just for effect I beleive.
yeh ur right. the wailing doom has no purpose... but hopefully GW will make it do something in next edition of Codex Eldar.
Its left over from 2nd edition where it actually did something heh.. There was no monstrous creature rule then like there is now really
I think it is for fluff, and to avoid wierd conversions.
Warhammer Fantasy: Warriors of Chaos, High Elves
Warhammer 40k: Eldar, Space Marines, Orks
Nope Kirasu is right, it is left over from previous rules versions when it actually did something
Everything you have been told is a lie!
I think that if you take a look at the Nightbringer entry you will see an even worst weapon. The wailing doom at least has some abilities (even if it's carrier has them none the less ) but the Nightbringer's doesn't have sh#Â£$.

Get your sig from-tHe BaD GuY
Monstrous creature/wailing doom abilities are still a nice rule to have around anyway! by the way, is there like a GW fluff hotline where you can ask all these mysterious questions?
FROM THE BOOK OF THE IMPERIUM:
1. Thou shalt not go on a panty raid in the Adaptus Soritus temple.
2. Thou shalt not flirt with Howling Banshees. They are the enemy.
3. Thou shalt not refer to Battle Sisters as Bolter Biatches
4. Darth Vader isnâ€™t the son of Abaddon
5. Thou shalt not reassemble a Necron into a washing machine
just call the gw hotline... 1 800 394 game
the guys there should answer your question, but if u want them to answer a rules question, always call 3 times at three different times of day and take the 2/3 majority answer..they can give u bogus answers sometimes because they dont know but want to sound cool. <_<
<insert witty remark here>
The wailing doom had a purpose in second adition, because it could be thrown like a singing spear can now.
