Welcome to Librarium Online!
How do you deal with Njal Storm Caller casting living lightning out of a land raider? My fire prism and Shadow specters had trouble cracking the thing open. I had runes of warding as well, but it didn't do much to slow him down.
Yea that's definitely illegal.
My brother in law uses a Space Wolf list, he doesn't use a lot of psychic powers but does run a land raider. I usually kit out 2 wave serpents with BLs and one with fire dragons in, which usually end up suiciding his LR if the bright lances don't take it down first, then I run my banshees in the other serpent to mop up the termies that pop out
So the "Chooser of the slain" (stupid bird thing) doesn't get around that rule?
No, the chooser of the slain just offers a ballistic skill advantage, but you still need to be able to fire to use it
I think the chooser of the slain was allowed to be used to draw LOS in the old edition of Space Wolves, not sure on that personally just what my Space Wolf buddy told me. So yeah your getting screwed over on that one. The other way to try and neutralise it is taking a farseer with runes of warding. That lowers his chance to cast it to 55% and chances of perils of the warp are increased to 33%.
Also when he casts that spell FAQ says he has to roll to hit you as well, they don't automatically hit. So he rolls to see if he can cast the power, rolls to see how many shots he gets from it if he was successful, and then rolls to hit you (like any normal shooting weapon.), and then does armour penetration rolls or rolls to wound.
I'm pretty sure for living lightning he will only have to roll to hit once, as it says the target suffers D6 hits, he won't have to roll to hit them
Living Lightning is a psychic shooting attack with the profile shown below:
Roll to hit D6 times. The chooser just bumps him up to BS5 if it has a line of sight to his target.
Right, always thought it said automatically suffers D6 hits
