View Full Version : Runic armour question

Sorry for not remembering the names of the items but i am bored at work:

There is a rune that you can get that treats any attacks over Str 5 as str 5, there is a DE weapon that lets him strike at Str 6 and says this cannot be reduced, which takes p residence? We just diced off but i would like to know the answer.

not really sure but to be picky the dwarf rune doesn't say it reduces the enemy to str 5 just to treat it at str 5. so you could argue you are not modifying the strength of the attack.

I think the runic item may win here; due to the way it is worded the str 6 item is treated as str 5 (without actually being reduced).

That said might just have to dice it!

Ya i cant remember the exact wording, if some one else can ost it, i have both books at home, just need to look 'em up!

Both the Crimson Death and the Master Rune of Steel are pretty straight-forward. The attack is either S 6 or S 5. Roll a dice each combat phase to determine which.

"A model wielding the crimson death always strikes at s6. No other modifiers or magic items can ever modifiy this."

Seems pretty clear cut to me. The dwarf rune is both a magic item and a modifier. It does squat vs the crimson death.

He is S6. Just that the Dwarf only feels the blow as S5 :p
