Epidemius Tally on Forgeworld stuff

Postby Lord Krungharr » Mon Mar 11, 2013 8:12 pm

What are people's verdicts on whether or not the Tally of Pestilence would benefit Scabiethrax and Nurgle Spined Beasts? Since Scabiethrax has the Daemon Lord of Nurgle rule, does that count for a Daemon of Nurgle? Or not? And the Spined Beast is Daemon, and with the Mark of Nurgle, does that make it Daemon of Nurgle?

daemon with the mark of nurgle is not the same thing as daemon of nurgle.

True, so Obliterators certainly wouldn't benefit. But Scabiethrax is pure Daemon, no puny Mark on him.

does he have the "daemon of nurgle" of rule? if not then no. It doesn't matter how silly it is. Epidemius is quite clear. and yes it has to be the same one from the Daemon codex. Since he does not you'll have to wait for forge world to errata him to have it.

Not necessarily. It could be ruled (using the basic common sense approach) that FW daemon models are "daemons of appropriate god" for Adepticon by the INAT folks well before FW figures anything out.

Yeah, that's what I was hoping for.

Or if there's a bunch of Daemon-haters on the council, they could say ,"well Chaos is SOOO fickle, that the Daemon Lords don't actually count as Daemons, nor do they bear the same dedication to their respective gods as their smaller Codex Daemons counterparts."

Of course that would be unbelievably lame and stupid.
