View Full Version : Armour save modifiers?

Hi everyone,me again.

I was wondering about the armour save modifiers, and this is onfusing me a bit. With weapons such as the chainsword or anything else that shows an armour save modifier, is this a modifier in addition to the strength modifier as shown earlier in the book or is that the only modifier?

save modifiers affect models wearing armour which is rare.

e.g. Carapace armour has a 4+ save if attacked with a weapon with a -1 save mod it changes to 5+ (4+ save on a D6 -1)

Hope this helps

Use the Stats of the weapon.

For models with higher Strengths use a regular sword. For example a S3 guy with Chainsword would use the S4 -1 save, while a S4 guy with Sword, Bionic Arm and Crushing Blow would have S6 with a -3 save.

If a weapon lists an armour-save modifier, then this is used instead of the strength modifier. Unlike Fantasy or Mordheim, it is relatively rare that a weapon does not have a fixed modifier; almost all that don't have one are the ones who's strength are defined by the user.

I would assume yes seeing as how its based on the same rules system.
