This is probably just me but I find the english here a bit vague.

"Once per battle, you can re-roll a single hit roll, wound roll, or damage roll made for your warlord."

Specifically, "for your". Does this mean damage roles made "by my warlord" or "by my opponent for my warlord". I don't understand why they didn't just use the "by your" instead of "for your", unless they actually mean "for your". Shocked

I didn't really think it was all that vague, personally. 'Made for=made on behalf of' in this case. A weapon that is hitting him is being rolled on behalf of the attacking model, not the warlord.

Maybe I'm wrong, though.

Thanks. I guess I'm reading too much into it.

The important part is that YOU can reroll.
It doesn't say anything about your opponent rerolling, it is YOU rerolling something.

And to be pedantic about language, "reroll" means to repeat a roll. If you did not make the initial roll, you would not be "re"rolling. Thats a picky point though.

I don't think it is. If people want to get legalistic about the rules (and when money's on the line, it's GONNA happen) then it's a very salient point.
