View Full Version : Suneater's "Herald of the Tempest" attack question

01-04-2009, 23:28
I have a question regarding the "Herald of the Tempest" attack of the WoC special character Kholek Suneater. It states that in the shooting phase he picks a target anywhere on the battle field and rolls a d6. on a 2-6 the unit suffers d6 S6 hits. on a 1 it hits him.

My question is, can he march and use this as it doesn't seem to be a typical ranged attack.

i would assume he can march as he isnt shooting a weapon, its an attack that happens in the shooting phase... like bloodcurdling roar.

i could be wrong but i think its a safe assumption.

It's a trigger ability, like Godgolden says, it just happens in the shooting phase.

You're free to march.

Pretty sure any ranged attack made in th shooting phase is subject to the normal rules for shooting. As a result, you need to be specifically allowed to march and shoot (as it says so in the breath weapon rules for example).

Breath weapons are a type of shooting in the main rulebook. Herald of tempest is just a special rule that happens to occur in the shooting phase.

id say you can march and shoot. it is a shooting attack, but he isnt using a ranged weapon.
