Just a couple of things. Page 6 of the 4.0 rules is the only place that confirms that the white champions are made up of all elements. Therefore when they roll for magic they generate any color of the owners choosing regardless of what terrain or in the reserves, correct? <-THIS IS CONFIRMED IN THE FAQ DOC.


Second small thing. is my logic flawed or is this right: page 6 says Ivory is the lack of any element, Amazons cast the color of the terrains they are at or ivory only if casting from the reserves. The Resurrect dead requires the spell color match the unit your bringing back or, specifically for amazon, it can be ivory or any one color. Good so far.

But the logic seems to follow that Amazon, therefore, can NOT resurrect white champions if they are attempting to do it from reserves. White is all colors, requires A COLOR to resurrect. Amazon reserve magic is the lack of any color. They would have to be at a terrain when casting.

The advance rules section doesn't mention how magic pertains to the white champions like previous versions have so I just wanted clarification.

Amazons can only resurrect Amazons if in reserves. They cannot resurrect any other race in reserves because they can't generate a color that matches that race. That would include white Eldarim. This is a drawback of Amazons, they cannot generate many spells in reserves.

Perfect. That's how I understood it. We've been teaching new players lately and had a 5 player game last night. 36 point armies, I ran with a whole Amazon army except one unit, a dragon slayer. Pretty deadly army if you use the racial abilities and just let the other players do the maneuvering till you've thinned them out.

Still the game was close because one player was using all scalders which were destroying the other players too and we were kind of avoiding each other. the winning roll was the difference of a single maneuver roll, and that was with the opposing army dealing with a rock to mud on them.
