View Full Version : Immune to Fire

Tried to do a search but came up with nothing so if this is covered somewhere else i apologize.

If you are immune to fire like Dragon princes are and a bolt thrower is a flamming attack due to a rune can you still kill DP's with the bolt? The only reference i can find is the Rune of the Furnace which reads "The bearer of this rune is immune to fire and cannot be affected by enemy attacks purely consisting of flaming attacks such as fireballs, flames from a Skaven Warpfire thrower, breath of a high elf dragon, etc...

So using that reasoning the bolt could still kill a DP it would be just treated as a bolt thrower shot with no fire. I couldn't find immune to fire in the BRB so this is the best definition i was able to find. Can anyone dispute this or disagree in my interpretation?

Models with dragon armour is completly immune to any flaming attacks. So if an attack have the flaming special rule it can't touch them, at all. So your flaming bolt thrower is useless against Dragon Princes.

According to the Elf FAQ, immune to fire means that the entire attack is deflected. IE- Your lord has a flaming sword. Therefore, he cannot hurt DPs in combat. Same thing with flaming cannonballs. (though ironically, the flame cannon works just fine because it doesn't have the flaming rule)

Sucks, but demz da rulez.

this question seems to pop up once every week.

here are some threads i found doing a search, all pretty well detail the arguments:



In short: do not use flaming attacks against dragon princes.
