View Full Version : Slime trail

11-05-2008, 16:10
While playing a game lyesterday, a guy at my local store who was trying out some proxy plaguebearer/Herlad unit upgraded the herald with slime trail. Now i was almost 100% certain that this just negated the Combat res bonus i got for flanking and or rear charging, but my friend was insistant to say that i did not negate his ranks as well. I told him that the cr bonus was simply the extra +1 bonus and that my clanrats would still negate his ranks as his gift did not say he kept his ranks.

AM i wrong or is it basically a moving oath stone, or does it just make flank charges hurt less?

i thik that you were right
it says
'enemy units do not receive combet resolution bonuses for attacking the flank or rear of a daemon with this ability, or any unit he has joined'

it says that you do not receive a combat bonus but nothing about him not losing his

You are correct

Negating enemy ranks is not a bonus to combat resolution for the flanking unit, and so it is not affected by Slime Trail.

You were correct. It's different than the stupid Oathstone, in that the Oathstone states that the unit does not have a flank/rear. Slime Trail states (like the Varghulf) that it the enemy unit does not receive a bonus for flank/rear.

The points cost of slime trail might indicate that you were right fubukii. If the upgrade was THAT good it'd definetly be more expensive.
