Hello everyone !!!
New installement of the Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse rules preview. This time it's about Damage and Commands Assets. To understand what where are writing about it's better to have read this post : Link .
In Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse the roll to wound is made with a D12 and you have to beat or equam Sap and Sat of the weapon. (go read the post explaining it if you didn't : Link ).
If you successfully wound your target you place a small blast marker next to it, if the target already have a small blast marker you replace it with a large blast marker.
At the end of the Turn, during the Damage phase each unit with at least one blast maker must pass an armor save or loose one wound. No AP or Save modifier in this game, You roll a D12 for armor save against small blast marker and D6 against large blast marker.
Note : Destroyer special ability mean that the weapon deal only large blast marker.
With this rule clarification in mind and the Chaos Space Marines Preview from yesterday ( https://war-of-sigmar.herokuapp.com/bloggings/3922) What do you think of the revealed Abbadon power to always test with D12 for Armor save ?
Look Hella strong ?
But keep in mind that the number of wounds in Warhammer 40000 Apocalypse is not like 40k, look at guilliman profile :
Only 2 wounds !!! Do you think Abby have also 2 or only 1 ?
There are two kinds of Command Asset – universal (which say “Apocalypse” on them and can be used by anyone) and Faction specific (which will have the name of the Faction they are for).
Also, Psychic cards need Psycher on the ground to use them :
How They Work ?
Before the game start you can build a deck of 30 cards. Then you draw up to 10 cards (one + one per warlord on the battlefield). There is 400 Command Assets to choose from and the Command Assets cards can have a massive impact on your games of Apocalypse so it's a very important step.
