View Full Version : Arcane inferno and dig in

Does being dug in, as per trenchers, protect them against the Arcane Tempest Gunmages arcane inferno attack AOE?

Arcane Inferno is a normal AOE and so the directly hit target suffers damage but the AOE 3" is blast damage and so anyone under the effect of Dig in will be immune to it.

Sure, because other than direct hit is blast damage. Still models direct hit suffers damage normally because Dig In only grant immune to blast damage.

Edit: Damm, I was late again!

I just rered both abilities in the Cygnar faction book, and I see no reason why the Trenchers would not be immune to the Gun Mages' Arcane Inferno, while the Trencher Infantry Unit is dug in.

Short version - yes, the Trenchers would be safe.

That's what we thought, and went with. Thanks much.
