Not exactly sure so I figured I'd ask; is a unit that includes a characters with the crown benefit at all against Skaven Doom rockets?

Thanks in advance.

The doom rocket isn't a warmachine I'm afraid.

Hoping against hope, figures. Thanks.

There are two way to interpret the ironcurse icon rules:
1) works against war machine attacks => any attack from unit type "war machine" (note that this would make the icon give a ward save in CC)
*or*
2) works against war machine *weapons* => any attack from a weapon using the rules found in the BRB for war machine weapons (canons, flame throwers, stone throwers, etc ...)

The second one seems to be the one implied by the rules, meaning that it would work for the skaven flame thrower (type infantry), the ogre canon (type chariot) , scraplauncher (type chariot, fire like a stone thrower) or even the ice ball of the Thundertusk (fire like a stone thrower too), but not for the doom rocket.

This has always been my interpretation, although the need to test it out has not arisen in a game yet

It's not only implied but the Ogre FAQ specifically has the question about whether it works against the Scrap Launcher, Iron Blaster & Spehere of Frost-Wreathed ice
