    Shardnet restrictions?

    Does the shardnet have any kind of restrictions as to what it can affect? The old Wyche weapons would only halve WS if the enemy was under S6, and I was wondering if the shardnet could affect things like C'tan, Bloodthirsters, Dreadnoughts, etc.

    Fluff wise I certainly don't see a Dread being all that bothered by a spikey net (esp. a chaos dread, "Why are you throwing this spikey net on me? Are you trying to decorate me?"), but I was just wondering what the rules say.

    The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. Bring them understanding of the power of ourselves through our strength and their fear. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all fragments will be smashed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be consumed

    No restrictions, any enemy model in base-to-base loses an attack, to minimum of 1.

    Maybe they're just being so distracting with their flashy barbed-net wielding prowess that the enemy can't get as many swings in?

    Or maybe they just show cleavage?

    If someone assaults the Wyches and has 1 attack base would they lose the 1 attack from assaulting and therefore go back to their 1 attack?

    The -1 attack would be from their total for the round, to a minimum of 1. So yes, if they only had 1 base attack +1 for a charge they would lose the charge bonus.

    The one thing I'm curious about, and haven't gotten a chance to check the few times I've sat down with the actual codex, is does the wording on the Shardnet allow for the penalties to stack from multiple shard nets?

    Agree with Boo...wording seems to indicate that multiples will stack.

    The idea of this working on Walkers is making me want to scrape up points for Haywire grenades...

    Luckily, HWGs are half the price they used to be, and can be put on a lot more units in the army. Honestly, a Wych squad with haywires can be much more effective against a mechanized army than a Warrior squad toting a blaster, and for not many more points either. That's not to say the Kabalite Warriors don't have an important role in the force though.

    I seem to vaguely remember that the shardnet incorporates some kind of electric incapacitating attack, which explains in the fluff how it can be used against even large or mechanical enemies. C'tan, on the other hand, are just kind of ridiculous to be seeing in a 40k battle regardless (but it's fun to play with them anyway).

    I had a squad of 10 Wyches with Lilith assault a 7 man Terminator squad with Thunder Hammers and Term Chaplain. Lilith was right in the middle so she negated half the terminators' attacks right off the bat. Now I've read what Hekatrix Bloodbrides are, Lilith will be going with them to include a 2nd shardnet which should provide almost complete attack reducing range.
