Hey, Luis;

Yes, you do indeed get the bonus for using a Grimoire when Casting Eldritch Spells- page 38 of Forbidden Power specifically states that they count as Arcane Powers (besides the additional rules given), so anything that affects Arcane Powers also affects Eldritch Spells! No self-respecting occultist would leave home without a small library of books! :)

Hope that helps,

J.

Hi Jonathan,

do the Dark Confederacy's Revenants count as "supernatural" beings? They have no such entry in the posse description, but compared to the Congregation zombies and the npc zombies, it would make sense. Is the "supernatural" entry just missing?

Thanks and regards
N.

It makes sense that they are in essence, but the author has stated that they are not in game terms, as they are wholly dependent on the Necromancer for their abilities. He drops, they drop, so they are more tools than supernatural beings.

I get why they aren't considered supernatural. While they are no doubt animated by supernatural means, they are just animated corpses. Their fist is nothing than a normal human fist that just happens to be animated. They're sort of like puppets.

Hi all ,

Consider the following situation :
 - Model A is in "Lookout".
 - Model B use its first action to move, in the LOS of model A.
 - Model A decides to not react
 - Model B uses its second action to enter "Lookout".
 => Model A reacts

Do you think this is inline with the the lookout rules ? I think yes, but i am not sure :)

You can't react to a reaction . Written this way. 

After reread the question , yes its ok because you react to a a action not a reaction.
