PostSubject: Hammerschlag   Sat 17 Apr 2010 - 16:30

The Wolf Priest of Ulric (from TC 8) has a prayer called "Hammerschlag" (Difficulty 10), which reads: "The Wolf Priest calls down a hammer blow from Ulric on any model within 6". That model suffers a S4 attack from an enormous ethereal hammer, including the concussion special rule".
Now, does this mean:
A) ...on all models within 6", friend or foe.
B) ...on one model of your choise, within 6".
C) ...on any models you like (ie. all foes, no friends), within 6".

The wording's rather vague, and none of the interpretations seems really obvious to me.

The prayer calls down a hammer blow which is a singular blow. This hammer blow is on any model and "any" is singular also. Therefore I believe that choice B from your list is correct.

Could be. Could also be Ulrics hammer head has a 12" diameter, and doesn't harm his priests, perhaps not even the priests allies. And "any model within" could refer to a single model, but doesn't really have to. Also, difficulty 10 is rather high for a single hit with a ordinary S4 hammer, well within charging distance (even from a dwarf). On the other hand, hitting all enemies within 6" with a S4 hammer is quite insane; and hitting friends and foes alike seems quite situational and risky...

"any model" points out clearly i affects a single model, if it enemys and allies all at once it would say "every model".

Also the second sentance again points out clearly a single model is affected

Quote :

That model not each or all choosen only that one single model.

A S4 attack with concussionis pretty stong. Esspecialy as u are allowed to cast at models i HtH combat.

I actually always assumed that this spell meant "all models" within six inches of the wolf priest, friend or foe. Its a difficulty 10 spell. A strength four attack with a range of six inches? Fires of U'zhul (or whatever) is a strength 4 attack with a range of 18 inches and Fires only a difficulty 7 spell. Fortunately, in the two campaigns I have employed wolf priest, I never rolled Hammerschlag

It isn't ambiguous, really. The answer is "B" from Tzapquiel's list.


A) ...on all models within 6", friend or foe. It would say "all models..."
B) ...on one model of your choise, within 6". Yes - it says "on any model within 6""
C) ...on any models you like (ie. all foes, no friends), within 6". It would say "All enemy models within 4" of the priest" (see the wording on Soulfire).
