Lygur’s Tongue - How does it work?

Post  Kal on Sun Jul 08, 2018 11:39 pm

Here is the rules as written,

Artefacts
Lygur’s Tongue (60 pts)
All enemy model parts in units in base contact with the
bearer suffer -1 Attack Value.


it doesnt say to a minimum of 1 or that it can't be zero? I cant find anything in the actual rule book that says anything about attacks not being able to be reduced below zero.

So how does this work? because it just seems TOO good.

No it does what you think, but only to models in actual base contact with the bearer. So on a 40 mm base against some rank and file on 20s, the max they would lose is 4 attacks, even if they had only 4

Ok that is exactly how we were going to play it but I didnt know. Pretty useful for characters.

So if a chariot was in base contact would the riders and the horses lose an attack each? To a potential 0 attacks?

Every model part in the unit loses one attack. Page 14 of the rulebook says that attack value cannot be reduced to less than 1. So this item only affects multi-attack models.

BOOM Very Happy
Well Done Mr.Rineholm.
Makes me want to read the rulebook...I always forget the Fear Rule.

Terror does not make a unit Fearless does it? Also Fear doe snot make a unit Fearless does it?

Hrm... weird item. Helpful against an ogre army tho haha. Thanks nathan! I did look for the rule about below 1 attack but I just ctrl+F it and worded it incorrectly. Ha

Feel free to explain fear /terror as I too have gotten confused with all the editions
