Supreme Kommandant Irusk

From Battle College
Jump to: navigation, search

Khador Warcaster

Having failed in his first assault on Northguard, Irusk received a severe dressing down by Empress Vanar. The accusation that he had wasted the lives of his men cut particularly deep. He took a short leave in which he considered falling on his sword, an honorable death for a disgraced soldier such as himself. However he was summoned by the Empress before he could act and promoted to Supreme Kommandant, a direct challenge to his legacy. Irusk knows the empress' unspoken command is that only total victory will suffice. Irusk now enters battle determined to earn his new rank by using all his stratagems and strategic planning to utterly defeat the motherland's enemies.

Rules Clarifications[edit]

Rules Clarification : Magical Damage      (Edit)

  • The "Damage Type: Magical" is not inherited by "secondary" damage from a weapon such as arcs (Electro Leap) or hazards (Scather). (Infernal Ruling)
  • All spells have "Damage Type: Magical" (refer latest errata).
    • This is inherited by "immediate" secondary damage (such as Eruption of Spines) ... [Verification needed]
    • ... but not by "lingering" secondary damage (such as the cloud left by Breath of Corruption). [Verification needed]
  • If a weapon/spell includes Magic Damage and another kind of elemental damage it can still damage Incorporeal models. They're not affected by the rule "if an attack does multiple types of damage and a model is immune to at least one it is immune to the entire attack.
    The phrase "immune to non-magical damage" should be intrepreted as "immune to damage that doesn't include Damage Type: Magical" (not as "has immunity to Corrosion and Electricity and Cold and etc.")

Rules Clarification : Warcaster or Warlock     (Edit)

  • Please refer to the Warcasters & Warlocks page for a recap of the warcaster rules, and the very few associated rules clarifications.

Rules Clarification : Tactician      (Edit)

  • The moving model doesn't have to be in CMD range, just the model they're moving through.
  • The "can ignore for LOS" is not optional. You cannot opt to "turn off" your ability to see through models, in the hope of getting a free strike or some such. (Infernal Ruling)

Rules Clarification : Total Obedience      (Edit)
Rules Clarification : Tough - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Pathfinder      (Edit)

  • Pathfinder (Edit) - Pathfinder doesn't apply to involuntary movement (i.e. when you're pushed or slammed).


Rules Clarification : Airburst      (Edit)

  • Abilities that add to the RNG of a spell (such as Sylys Wyshnalyrr's Spiritual Conduit) don't affect Airburst's RNG.
  • Although the spell does blast damage, the POW is not halved. Think of it as already halved.

Rules Clarification : Artifice of Deviation      (Edit)

  • For models that get a bonus from being near rough terrain (ie the Earthborn Dire Troll), then:
    • If they're outside the CTRL area they don't get any bonus, because the terrain still is Open despite the spell. There is no rough terrain for them to be nearby.
    • If they're inside the CTRL area they do get the bonus, because they're treating the terrain they're within as rough.

Rules Clarification : Battle Lust - None yet. (Edit)
Rules Clarification : Energizer - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Fire for Effect      (Edit)

  • If you use this spell with a spray or AOE weapon, then all attack and damage rolls for that attack are boosted.

Rules Clarification : Solid Ground      (Edit)

  • Placeholder
