View Full Version : Order of Effects

I played a game yesterday with Durgen vs. pSeverius. I had a unit with the Primed spell on them and my opponent cast Ashes to Ashes into the unit. The initial damage roll killed one of the Primed models, causing it to explode. My questions here are:

When are the D6 extra targets chosen when casting Ashes to Ashes?
If the player casting Ashes to Ashes rolls for and picks their targets, but one of the extra targets is destroyed in the blast from Primed, does that player get to pick a new target?

We wound up playing it as, since he picked his secondary targets already but destroyed one with the Primed blast damage, he couldn't pick new ones but I would like to be sure of how this should play out.

Ashes to Ashes is simultaneous, so all models that are affected by Ashes to Ashes are determined before any damage roll is made (and thus before Primed can trigger).
