Isn't the Vexator Mask (see our FAQ) perfect for denying scary IC's or C's of the opponent attacks in 6th now that we can issue challenges?

Imagine a Heamonculi with Vexator Mask and Clone Field (even more anoying) challenging the opponents most prized IC and have him locked down for a turn or 2/3. He hás to accept the challenge or do nothing a turn aswell (which is also fine). And with the aformentioned combo in combination with FnP (or you take Shadow Field instead of Clone Field and use that reroll psychic power of the Farseer) makes him very hard to kill.

Good idea? Twisted Evil

Leadership checks are not that hard to pass for opponents - you would probably need a tormentor grenade thingy to drop the enemy's leadership but I am not certain this combo is really worth it.

I wish Haemonculi could take the clone field, I like the one on Urien - if the opponent has a small number of attacks it is priceless.

Which one is that called, hopefully not "Fortune" - that one is kind of controversial, not looking to start a fight.

Yeah, you are probably right. Damn high LDs.

Oh, am I mistaking? Thought heamie's could take clonefields (no dex w/ me right now). Well it's not that important for this idea.

Oh is that controversial? I missed that discussion I guess, what's up?

I think the argument is over whether "Dark Eldar" are "Eldar units".

Oh, I see. Well I don't have the Eldar codex and not the WH40k 6th right now.

But In the Eldar FAQ is says you can use the psychic disciplines in the rulebook. Generate a new power from divination or telepathy it says. Is Fortune perhaps in the rulebook with a more clear description?

Sadly Fortunae has not been clarified in anyway - I think you may be considering the Divination power which allows the psyker himself to re-roll hits, wounds and saves: could be wrong though - I don't have my brb with me either!

Divination power cannot give benefits to other models, only to psyker herself. And wording of Fortune is quite unclear...
