According to new FAQ, space wolf runepriests' runic weapons add +1 to the deny the witch rolls. Does this mean, they can deny the blessings and conjurations with 5+ roll?
In my meta, most people deny this...

Rulebook says "If none of your units were the target of the enemy’s psychic power (the power in
question might have been a blessing, a conjuration, or some other power that only
affects the Psyker’s own troops) you can still attempt to Deny the Witch. To do so,
follow the same process, but apply no modifiers to your dice rolls – you will
require rolls of 6 to nullify Warp Charge points." so I'd say bonuses only apply if you are targeted.

Wow, that is a big nerf to them. The old Runic weapon stopped people from casting on a 4+.

So, I think this +1 is for all powers.

Yeah Runic weapons got nerfed, but so did the ability to actually cast powers.
Runic weapons were hands down the easiest and best psychic defence in the game, and needed to be powered down.

Just to check, does it say +1 to the rolls, or +1 die to Dewny The Witch (and therefore possibly the pool of dice).

'Furthermore, a model with a runic weapon adds 1 to Deny the Witch rolls.'

Stupid proof reading!

Not the first time. I seem to recall one version of Harlequins got both the new and old version of Veil of Tears.

They've FAQd the FAQ already. That was quick! Hopefully that's a sign of things to co...I can't even finish that sentence with a straight face!
