View Full Version : Magic Resistance?

Does a mount with magic resistance confer it to its rider? Im thinking not, but wanted to double check.

Page 82 is pretty explicit on which Special rules confer.

... This kinda ruins Unicorns in WE lists...

I believe if any model in a units possesses magic resistance then it is applied to the unit. Ie a character gives to his unit. Ergo, a mount would give it to his rider and anyone else attached to him. (IMO, the BRB only technically covers characters joining units)

EDIT- Just read the section on 82... But I'm not convinced.

Without checking my response would have been "yes, the whole unit gets any MR"

However, the rules as written on 82 and 72 are clear: Only characters bestow their MR on a unit, and MR is not one of the listed exceptions to special rules not transferring between mount/rider.

Seems wrong though hopefully it will be FAQ'd and added to the list of exceptions.

I ve got a second another question in relation with magic resistance. Does magic resistance work against wounds suffered as a result of rolling on the miscast table?

No it doesn't.
