You guys think that the Book of St. Lucius has the ability to override the affect caused by the Culexus and the Pariah's??
It is a problemHeiromyo said:I can't see a problem, unless the modified the person carrying the books leadership.
that was also the general thought as well, as long as that character remains out of range of the Culexus/Pariah then her unmodified Ld is used, which we decided was a question of order again i.e. the squad is Ld 7 until required to take a test, the Ld of the model outside the Culexus range happens after the Culexus/Pariah effect. That was the only viable way to work as a counter it, for 5 pts it would have been to powerful otherwise.I believe it would work, depending on the placement. If you had a unit within the 12" of the -ld from the culexus and it was also within 6" of the character with the book of st. lucius it could use that character's unmodified leadership, as long as the character wasn't also within 12" of the culexus.
See i think that "The Passion" is a modifier and not a stat change due to the rules statement "adds 2 to its initiative". The "Soulless" rule is a direct change on a stat line using the the statment "Counts as having" its not a positive (+2) or negative (-2) modification of that stat. So the the ability of the Cul/Pariah would still be in affect during a sweep roll but not "The Passion".What is a "modifier"? Is a "modifier" when the dice roll is changed like when outnumbered in after a lost assault? THey use the word "modifier" in that section. CHeck for yourself.
