Morning all,

Just a quick question. Are 'Ward Saves' still present in Age of Sigmar? For example do special rules that allow ignoring of wounds come into effect before or after a failed Save roll?

Yes they are. They come in the form of 'when the model suffers a wound or mortal wound roll a d6. On a #+ ignore the wound.' or somethong very similar.

So you take the roll after you have taken saves, calculated damage and applyed the wounds to the unit/modems in question.

Please note that since the rules only admit to one "save" roll, based on the model's save characteristic, all these various special rules are effectively unique and don't necessarily have to agree with each other on how to do what they do, except to say that they are not saves and so will not be affected by rules that modify saves.

That's the long way of saying, "they are and they aren't". They are: in end result, but not: by name or title. Still, it is fully correct.

They are, in the sense of there is a mechanism for avoiding wounds with a roll that cannot be modified.

They are not, in the sense that there is no universal 'ward save'. There is the ability to ignore wounds inflicted for some units. This also means that it happens after the whole inflicting damage process, and avoids any questions around whether they are affected by saving throw modifiers. It is also unique to each unit.

Look at the high elf warscroll compendium (it made me weep actually... their elite infantery.. already better than my own before the ward save is added :S.. their big hero's and monsters.. already better.. before the wardsave is taken into account.)
