Welcome to Librarium Online!
Probably me being a muppet, but would a charging Warboss with powerclaw have Str 11?
Powerklaw doubles his strength to 10, and furious charge adds 1, great for mincing AV14! Nobs with S9 on the charge, not exactly weak...
Anyway this seemed a bit convenient so thought i should check, just starting back atm and yet to play a game see my blogs for details.
That would be great, but unfortunately the rules limit you to a max of strength 10.
Makes sense i just couldn't find it in the rulebook saying there was a max of 10, just that the klaw won't let you double above 10.
But the nobs get strength 9 right?
No statistic is allowed to go over 10. That's why the charts in the rulebook only go up to 10, and anything that causes your leadership to rise above 10 makes you fearless instead.
The rulebook clearly states that ability scores range from 1 to 10. I'm not sure if it specifically states that they 'can't rise above 10', but as I've said before, rules work by exclusion, not inclusion.
In order for you to do something that isn't normally allowed in the rules, the rulebook or codex must specifically give you permission to break that rule. The main rule book lists the highest possible strength as 10, so that's as high as it goes.
It doesn't specifically say it can't go higher, but it also doesn't specifically say that your boyz aren't invincible, that trukks aren't skimmers, that Eldar players don't automatically lose, or that you can't declare yourself 'king' and dance on the game table.
We could spend all eternity listing all the things you can't do. What you 'can' do is have a strength up to 10, and no higher. ^_^
"Any job worth doing, is worth doing with a powerklaw."
Lol, the boyz are invincible, great.
It does say you can have more than 10 attacks which is why I was wondering!
