    Warshout question...

    I'm probably a fool for not knowing, but does the Warshout ability ALWAYS work?
    It doesn't say if it works against fearless enemies or not... And I hate asking these questions because it makes me (in my own eyes) look like a rules-lawyer.

    But does it affect fearless units?

    Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!

    No it doesn't. It says morale not leadership. Fearless units are immune to morale.

    War Shout is more of intimidating people, freezing up their nervous system is what makes you hit 1st.

    If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.

    No actually I didn't mean that. I just phrased my sentence badly. :wacko:

    I meant warshout intimidates people into cowering during cc.

    The banshee mask ability freezes up their nervous system so that you can hit 1st.

    War shout uses a different thing than the banshee mask, they aren't actually WS1 because of frozen nerves or anything.

    Was I clear that time around? :rolleyes:

    No, but oh well=)

    I was only pointing out that you said warshout's effects allowed you to hit first - not true fluff or rule wise.

    Yes, you are correct that it's an intimidation thing (makes them cower...lalala) allowing you to strike easier and them having a harder time to strike you. And yup, banshee mask amplifies the psionics of the banshees to paralyze the opponent, allowing you to strike first (or denying the opponent an attack first round all together in second ed=).

    Not trying to argue with you, as you have also posted the correct info. Just clarifying a little of what you said for others.

    No, he didn't (though it did look that way in the first post). He was saying:

Intimidation is something that is connected to fear and so wouldn't effect fearless troops, while freezing the nervous system (or equivalent) is more of a physiological effect (and so would effect feerless troops).
    Brackets and bold are mine. Hope that clears things up (and my apologies to Lord Link if I actually got that wrong).

    already repped him positively, and messaged him, no worries. but word for word he said "War Shout is more of intimidating people, freezing up their nervous system is what makes you hit 1st."

    I know what he meant after he clarified, and we're all good. But the last part of his sentence refers (as he's clarified) to the banshee mask effects, which is wholely unrelated to the warshout ability. Thus, upon reading his ORIGINAL comment, it is misplaced and confusing.

    But I appreciate you clarifying what we've already claryfied. Really.
