View Full Version : Weapon profiles and save penalties

The warpfire thrower profile in the skaven army book says the weapons strength and then the save modifier, is the save modifier in addition to the save modifier for strength? So does it tally up to a -4 save or is it just -2 from the strength?

I'm 99% certain.

View the stated save modifier as a "clarification" to the strength value.

If you look at rattling gun, it has a -2 as well, which is basically s4 with armor piercing.

the last skaven book had the same confusing chart as well, and some people wrongly tried to get -4.

Another example of this kind of god-awful listing would be the war machines of empire book. I wouldn't mind my hellblasters having -5 save modifier, but sadly they don't.
