View Full Version : Skaven Bands of Power question

A quick question which came up the other day.

If a character with mundane weapons has the bands of power (bound item doubles his strength until next magic phase), do his attacks count as magical?

I was opined that the weapons are still mundane. He was opined that the strength was magically enhanced.

This is only relevant because my forest spirits were involved in a sound thrashing by a plague priest with additional HW and the bands of power. 5 S8 attacks is a tad bit nasty. Do they get their ward saves?

It turned out to be moot for game purposes because I blew all the ward saves I'm not sure I was allowed to attempt.

His attacks are not magical, only his strength.

Indeed the item merely doubles his base strength.
It does not make the weapon he is using magical in any way.

I disagree of course but we have discussed this many times before.
I'm surprised your opponent managed to harness the Bands power. Every time I've tried to add it to my army list, it does nothing as it is always dispelled.

It's best that you roll a dice to decide Raven.

Of course it does not count as magical attacks, since it doesn't say they confer magical attacks.
