Blood Burst - When this attack boxes an enemy living/undead model, center a 5" AOE on the boxed model then RFP it. Enemy models in the AOE are hit and suffer a blast damage roll with a POW equal to the boxed model's STR. This damage is not considered to have been caused by an attack. Edit description

Rules Clarification : Blood Burst      (Edit)

  • Because the boxed model is RFP'd before the damage roll, and buffs/debuffs on its STR don't apply - you use the base STR.

  • Not considered an attack (Edit)
    • The original attack and damage is definitely an attack, and triggers stuff normally. But the "secondary" damage works quite differently.
    • The secondary damage is not an attack, so doesn't trigger stuff like Vengeance.
    • The secondary damage (normally) doesn't actually hit the model(s) it damages, so doesn't trigger stuff like Shock Field. (A few of them do specify they hit, though, like Warhead.)
    • The secondary damage is not from an attack, but it is damage from the original model. This has two implications:
    1. It's not an attack from a weapon so:
      • it won't gain damage buffs from the weapon (such as Poison).
      • it won't gain any Damage Types from the weapon. (Infernal Ruling)
    2. It is a damage roll from a model so:
