View Full Version : Rhoven "Battle Driven" Trigger off of Free Strikes?

Can I move Rhoven out of engaged melee (hopefully getting damaged by a free strike) to trigger Battle Driven and give the two body guards pathfinder for their move (and then +2 STR for their attacks?).

I think it works, because it says it's triggered off of an "enemy attack," but I'm not sure a free strike counts as an enemy attack.

99% I say it's correct.

So, would it be possible, then, to order a charge, have Rhoven run past the charge target (since the charge order allows a model in the unit to either run or charge, right?), eat a free strike, and then have the two guards get an additional +2 each on their charge damage? That sounds like a pretty sweet tactic, considering their weapon master status and all.

I'm not sure it would offset the damage lost by not charging with Rhoven, though. However, that's a topic for a different forum.

It's possible. Battle damage would activate as soon as you take damage.

Two things to keep in mind.

1. Your enemy is under no obligation to take a free strike

2. Rhoven is unlikely to survive a free strike.
