Welcome to Librarium Online!
this weekend me and another player had a dispute about wyche weapons.
They half the weapon skill of anything with an UNMODIFIED str of 5 or below.
he had a deamon prince that was str. 6 (stature and str).
would the wyche weapons half his ws?
Well, Daemonic Strength is considered an "addition" for the purposes of calculating the Strength of a Powerfist attack. That is, a Lord with Daemonic Strength and a Powerfist attacks at S9. (4 x 2 + 1) This seems to indicate that it is a modifier that Wych weapons can ignore. I'm not sure about Daemonic Stature, though. The FAQ doesn't cover it in the same example since a Statured model cannot use Powerfists. Even if it is considered to simply alter the base statistic, it seems that the maximum "unmodified" Strength the Lord can have is 5 -- which means that Wych Weapons are effective.
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.
