    I'm going to be playing a game of WFB (8th Ed) after a long break shortly and wanted to ask about saving throws as I don't have the rule book handy:

    I have a Scarvet with 2+/4++ with hand weapon and a shield and Armour of Destiny. If I need to roll saves can I roll three:
    Armour, Ward and Parry, or am I limited to the best two?

    Thanks in advance from a forgetful old Hector (If you're old enough to remember this reference I feel sorry for you! If you're not, just Google Hectors House)

    You roll your armor save first, then... you roll either a regen,
    or parry save or a proper ward save whichever is higher.
    (2 saves total)


    Ps. After this step is the optional and rather rare multiply wounds step (double wounds or D3 wounds for instance).

    Yea it was separate in 7th,
    but they made it an alternate ward save in 8th.
    I guess it was a bit of a patch to some of the more OP units.
