blessed weapon (exploration 2222)
« on: January 14, 2011, 05:16:26 PM »
Hi! The exploration roll of 2222 may provide Witch Hunters and Sisters of S. with blessed weapon: "One of their weapons (chosen by the player) will now be blessed and will always wound any Undead or Possessed model on a to wound roll of 2+"

The question is, if it concerns all models in Undead and Possessed warbands, or only the two "possessed" models in Possessed Warband, and the Vampire, Zombies and Dire Wolfs in the Undead Warband?
And another thing -does the blessed weapon work also with Carnival of Chaos warband (as whole or with any particular models/characters)?

My guess would be that it should work only with the particular models, both in Possessed and Undead warband, and regarding CoC I would say it should work on Nurglings and Plague Bearers, but I might be wrong, and there is uncertainity in our group regarding this issue, so I would be grateful for your opinions.
Cheers!

Hi Kael,

It definitely only works against actual undead models so it would not work against the necromancer, dregs or ghouls. I'd apply the same logic to the possessed warband so it would work against the possessed and against the mutants and maybe against others in the warband as well (I have never played with or against this warband though so I don't know the warband members off the top of my head).

The blessed weapon would definitely work against (selected?) warriors in a Carnival of Chaos warband.

Cheers!

From the FAQ:

Q:With regards to blessed weapons, which wound Undead and Possessed on a 2+. Do the list members here think that this would refer to all members of an Undead or Possessed Warband (excluding Hired Swords) or just Undead like Vampires, Zombies, Dire Wolves, and maybe Ghouls but not Necromancers and Dregs? And with Possessed, just Possessed models, not Beastmen, Mutants, or Magisters etc. (which would seem odd)?

A:Blessed water and weapons only effect Undead that are dead! Since Dregs and Necromancers are human, they are not affected. The manual actually states that Zombies and Dire Wolves are undead, and therefore can be wounded. However it doesn’t say in the book that Vampires are Undead but naturally they are. As for Possessed – Magister, The Possessed, Dark Souls and Mutants are all affected.

When determining who should be affected by blessed weapon in Carnival of Chaos warband, I see those similarities:

Carnival Master = Magister
Brute = Possessed
Tainted One = Mutant
And, of course, all Daemons (including the Plague Cart) should be affected too.
