I know a scaly skin sv gets =1 for a shield, etc. but does it also lose points for armor piercing and S 4+ hits?
Can the Scaly skin of a dragon add to the armour save of its rider? Say a Chaos Lord got a Chaos Dragon mount, and He had a shield and chaos armour. would his save be Chaos armour - 4+ plus Shield so its 3+ plus Scaly skin 3+ so overall armour save is 0+? (2+ for the sake of armour saving but 0+ for armour modifications like S4 and armour piercing)
Wrong- in 8th edition you do get +1 for being on a ridden monster. Page 105 of the BRB (or the little red book in my case). Now I save 6 points on a shield for my Oldblood :biggrin:You don't get the +1 for being mounted, which seems odd, but it's part of the price of riding something that's a terrifying gigantic mean-spirited god of war.
I think he meant:no coke 123 is correct you can only get as gd as a 1+ save now the only exception is if you roll a six on the eye of the gods table allowing you to go to 0+
Exactly. This is the only advantage of a "0+" save, so there's no point wasting your points trying to get there on arrmour & items. You should just aim for a 1+ save, and then have him mounted on a monster, should you be so inclined to go for super duper lord protection. And there is most certainly no point to a "-1+" save, as was mentioned earlier. save your points for something that will actually make a difference.I think he meant:
(i) Hero has 1+ AS from armour and items
(ii) Hero is mounted on monster increasing AS by 1 to a 0+ AS, which is reduced to 1+
(iii) Later, Monster is slain but Hero's AS is still 1+
