    It looked clear to me. I put it on high res and paused it at the right spot to get a clear look and that's the wording. So Mayple was correct. You can have a damage 3 jezzail, but that's only for 1 model and they only have 1 attack. Best to use it on multi attack models to reap the benefit of the new wording like combat stormfiends, ratling guns, maybe doomflayers etc. Can you imagine shock gauntlet stormfiends with their attacks splitting into multiple hits that deliver 3 damage each!

    The wording is "Add 1 to the Damage characteristic of a weapon used by a friendly SKRYRE model that has made a successful attack." Just caught it from BOLS https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=530&v=d5dPQlBw8PI To me that seems like Mayple is right Resolve your attacks and work out if any hit, if any are successful and result in hits then you can choose to add 1 Damage.

    well, the old version didn't work on it.. it only doubled the damage of 1 successful attack... which is why people used it on mortars and not ratling guns. I haven't seen the wording on the new one version which is why I am asking

    @ Mayple Are you sure that it applies to all the attacks of a particular weapon? e.g. all 2D6 attacks of a ratling gun?

    Has any looked at the wording of the Sword... "Pick one of the bearer's melee weapons to be the Sword of Judgement." This wording looks slightly different to existing items that go like "Pick one of the bearer's weapons" and then go straight into abilities... They don't suggest a replacement type scenario. Anyone read anything into this? Could be an underlying magic item rules section in the future where magic items might replace an attack profile? or existing abilities? Hard to figure out in this case because there is no suggested replacement attack profile Just the wording it a little odd on this one...

    The Rumour Thread

    Agree, not enough information about slaanesh's DP mechanic or the greater summoning rules to say whether it's going to be an issue. I think is a very hard to balance area of the game and it's a concern to keep an eye on if there isn't any other "catch" and reinforcement points are dropped and that's all there is to it. Khorne blood tithe table certainly needs a rework if they don't require reinforcement points in the future. 8 blood tithe points to drop Skarbrand on the battle field could cause problems! Tzeentch/Seraphon would need a rework obviously. Nurgle is maybe not bad, not sure. Death concerns me.

    Speak for yourself. Puns and lame humor are very enjoyable for some A few beers and some easy fun are a good thing.

    I was just speculating based on advice of some people who have proven correct on these recent announcements. I hope the charging mechanic doesn't change either, not sure i see that being for the better either. Agree with your points.

    The Rumour Thread

    Kind of defeats the purpose of a big new change to official matched play rules to completely veto the big new change. One hopes they have done lots of testing

    Depending on full rules around this new summoning and also the rumoured change around chargers going first in combat, I see these changes (if both happen) as being the largest impact. Trying to get my head around potential Death units popping up out of grave sites, nurgle and murderhost type armies crashing into lines at the same time and attacking first! Could be quite a period of adjustment. Exciting but seems a challenge to balance to say the least.

    Yes they do. And I'm fully expecting them to not require reinforcement points either. Death is a little different without a generation mechanic. Though being an army traditionally associated with summoning it seems strange they might need reinforcement points and others wouldn't, shrug. Im just trying to think how much impact this might have.
  12. Nikobot

    Age of Sigmar: Second Edition

    Yes, that's a fair point. Maybe some do and some don't. Would seem a little inconsistent if it was like that though.

    Age of Sigmar: Second Edition

    So summoning no longer requires reinforcement points.. seems like it could have a huge impact. The new legions of nagash allegiance abilities allow for the summoning of an entire unit that was previously destroyed in the battle. Bringing back an entire unit seems quite impactful. Wonder if there is another balancing factor? do people think this could be tricky to get right?

    They haven't said how many command points you start with, could be 0, could be 3 or 5? They haven't said if the General gets a free use of his command ability, what else could be the point of having someone as the General? They haven't said what else command points can be used for either, if anything. Still a bit to find out...

    Short of advertising/promoting it, you can pretty much do it and use replicated bits can't you? Scavenging Thanquol would have had visually impressive results if a little expensive! respect though
