View Full Version : Arcane unforging and magic standads

Can I cast Arcane Unforging on the standard bearer of the unit (no the BSB) in order to break the magic standard the unit has?? Or do i have to cast it on the unit?? Cause the spell says "a single enemy model"

You can only destroy an item carried by the model you targeted.

Regular rank and file models in a unit don't carry the magical banner, only the standard bearer does.

But can i target the SB of the unit??

Yes, you can target any single model with the spell.

The fun comes in if the hit from the spell kills the model. Does the second part of the spell take effect and destroy the banner or not since a new model is carrying it.

I was also wondering about this. Does the mundane aspect of the Standard (or even the BSB) keep working.

Theoretically you can cast it on a skaven slave, although you know that he has no magic item.

@Archis: Looking at the command groups rules it is impossible to snipe a standard of musician out, because another model takes his banner to hold it. A champion can be sniped though.

My point was that if the SB lives, the banner is destroyed on a 2+. If he died I'd say the spell can't destroy the banner on the "new Sb" who picked up the banner.
