View Full Version : Dragon Ogres and Lightning

Is it possible to invoke Frenzy in a unit of your own Dragon Ogres by using the Banner of Wrath (Causes D6 S4 hits and from it's description is a 'lightning based attack')?

I can't see anywhere that says you couldn't do this.

You may only target enemy troops, thus it is not permitted.


edit: To elaborate: The BoW shoots a magic missile which follows the targeting rules for missile weapons. Those need a legal target to be an enemy unit.

HoC, p.53, BRB, p.110, and ibid., p.25

Yep its a magic missle so you cannot use it to shoot your own guys.

They are pretty good at getting frenzied against skaven armies,just get them in the path of some warp lightning or a warplightning cannon shot.

No idea why I put can only instead of cannot.....
I hadnt had my coffee,I wasnt awake or liable for any of my actions.

Pardon me?

You surely mean *not to shoot your own guys but the other peeps' ones*. No?
