Is it just me or did this virtue become a nobrainer now?

How do you read it, can you combine it with a magical weapon?

Does heroic killing blow only work on large targets?

Best thing to happen to Bretonnian heroes in 8th.

It now works with any weapon and will kill anything.

From pg. 72 of BRB.

Heroic Killing Blow

Heroic Killing Blow is a skill possessed by truly mighty warriors. It functions like a normal Killing Blow, except it works on any creature, regardless of size and troop type, except for swarms. A model with Heroic Killing Blow can take the head off a Dragon with a sungle swing - it's scaly hide matters naught!

Simply awesome! :D

Just wanted to clarify, since this came up in a game last night. I tried to use Heroic KB on the Black Coach, and the VC player argued that the coach is a chariot, not a "creature." Interesting point. Any thoughts?

Heroic Killing Blow the VC player instead.

"Regardless of...troop type..." should be enough to cover chariots.

Even "unique" troop types are affected. However, swarms are (unsurprisingly) not.
