Just recently picked up a Bretonnia army and was having a couple of games with it the next day. I fielded a Lord with the Virtue of Heroism (heroic killing blow). As per the question in the subject line. I was in combat with the Cauldron of Blood and was wondering how one would resolve a heroic killing blow on it. In the end we didn't give any effect (was playing my brother and I was pretty far ahead of him at this point and I wasn't worried about losing combats).
So I had a couple of ideas. Since when the first and second wound is done to the CoB hag attendants are removed and with the 3rd and 4th wound the death hag dies. Either HKB would kill all 3 or if the CoB was on it's first or second wound would it lose an attendant? On third wound would it kill the death hag?
I assumed HKB would work and just kill everything. But if anyone has come into this situation or knows how to handle this situation please let me know.
(For fun an anecdote from the battle: Group of 11 KotR charged one of his hydras. Knights deal no wounds (uh oh) Hydra rolls 11 for str 5 breath. (Uh oh). Between breath and attacks 9/11 Knights of the Realm die. Break run down...)
So anyways can the Cauldon be Heroic Killing Blowed?
