ok so as the title suggest it's about the Deamon blade, before i asked if frenzy worked with it, as the weapon grants the wielder D6+3 random attacks, if frenzy would give it D6+4, the majority seemed to say yes, but that brings me to two other questions.

1) would i get more attacks from rolling on the eye of the gods? making it D6+5 if i rolled and got +1 attack?

2) if yes for the first one in that sense could i exceed 10 attacks like the chimera? (the lore of beasts spell one with 4D6 random attacks and frenzy).

Yes to question # 1.

As far as quesiton # 2...The precedent seems to be that it's okay for random attacks to go above 10, however I'm not 100% sure about this one. I know that if I was playing you I would allow it, as the more attacks you have, the more chances of rolling 1's and hitting yourself.

1. That is correct.
2. Random attacks have a variable in them, which is outside the 1-10 range the rules expect anyway. I'd say you were okay as long as the static part of the value didn't hit 10 on its own.

I don't know about #1. I want that to be true. But if it is #2 is also true

Not just the chimera, there's a result on the Skaven Abom (3d6 attacks) that can get her to hit over 10.

And a 6 roll on the battleaxe of the last waagh on a SO warboss gets him 11 :D

awesome, and i doubt ive any reason to Fear rolling 1's as im only S5 so ill generally have a 4+ reroll AS and 4+WS to stop me from killing myself buuut the best part is i also have ASF so i can reroll 2's(can't reroll 1's cause the blade) and sometimes 3's will miss and ill laugh if i get more 1's. in a way my lord doesnt miss when he swings as 3+ ill hit the enemy and on a one i hit myself which isnt a miss and ill reroll 2's lol.

As has been said, Random Attacks circumvent the max 10 cap. This is why my Slaaneshi Daemon Prince has the Daemonblade--a potential 16 attacks with a good magic phase :D

I don't have my book in front of me, however... I don't think you can re roll 1's with a daemon blade.

i said that? but i can reroll 2's and sometimes 3's resulting in possibly more 1's hitting myself further so in a way ASF with daemon blade is a double negative haha. but i wouldn't have it any other way.
