View Full Version : Does Assail increase the slam distance on the Banshee's gun?

Banshee's gun shoots a small or medium based model. It stated that it slams the model. Assail states that slams made by the model are increased by 2". It does not specify slam power attacks. Does this extra 2" apply for the Banshee's slam gun?

I don't think it should by original intent, but by the wording, it sounds to me like it works.

I think that it will works. As you already pointed out, Assail does not says that it increases the distance of slam power attack. It only says that it increases the distance of slam.

Talked to dark legacy the other day at lock and load about this specific situation and agreed that the wording in it would allow the slam to increase the distance, but the intent of the spell was to benefit the power attacks only. Told me that I should consider it to not work until they could errata it.

Khador had that trick with the Marauder (that slams with a combo-smite special attack) for years, and apparently it was a case of non-power attack slam benefiting from Assail.

This is an older thread but I thought I would bump it back up. Since it wasn't mentioned in the errata do we think this is a valid combo?

Do not bump nor perform thread necromancy.
