I'm new to Warmachine, how does a model pass a skill check to perform a special action?
Like for a Cygnar stormsmith.
2D6, equal or under the skill value.
"Live with a man forty years. Share his house, his meals, and speak on every subject. Then tie him up and hold him over the volcano's edge, and on that day, you will finally meet the man. " - Shan Yu
there should be a number next to the skill. Like for stormcall its stormcall (8) i think. If you have arlan he should have something like repair (10)
weapon master is an additional damage die. thats up to 4d6 on charge damage.
That is... On a regular attack damage roll, instead of rolling 2D6 plus P+S, you roll 3D6 plus P+S. Since you get to roll an additional damage die for damage on your initial charge attack, you then roll 4D6 for damage if your unit/model has weapon master.

Your questions aren't stupid, because I'm still learning too =)
That makes some of the elite infantry with reach/WM/combined attack pretty mean to jacks and beasts out there.
No one cares about how many points you have, how much of it is painted OR you W/L/T record.
To see a woodland lunatic with a couple of axes go trashing Light Warjacks in one go is a remarkable thing to watch.
However, I also brought Yuri the Axe to the game.... and he was exactly the cure for Bane Thralls that I was looking for.
I think Yuri and 2 Manhunters are new 'core must have' units for me.
