    So the effect its just on one dice result!? Well I don't see the hidden force, can you explain me please?

    If i use FoC on a unit os Saurus Warriors for exemple, i can modify just one dice attack of all attack they made....thats correct?

    Yes.
    I'll try to explain its usefulness.

    First of all' remember that the +1 will affect a dice after you see the roll, so when you use it, it will always turn a failed roll into a success.
    Cast CoF on a stegadon.
    Hero phase: use the +1 to modify the teleport or to increase the extra move granted by skink Alpha.
    Shooting: it's always nice to hit with the giant bow.
    Charge: +1 to charge can make the difference
    Combat: a success with an attacks or a save.
    And this will work also in the opponent turn:
    Shooting: turn a failed save into a success
    Combat: same as above.

    Basically, you have a potential of 6 failed rolls, turned into a win. Even if you use it only half of the time, a spell that grants 3 positive results in a round is no joke.

    Now imagine it on a EotG, when you roll for the effects of the engine (plus all the bonuses you may need in the other phases).
    Or on a Knights unit, when you can turn a 5 into a 6 for mortal wounds.
    Or on a Carnosaur (Yes, it will affect also the contest by the bloodroar)

    To be honest, it does feel lackluster on account of it only affecting 1 roll. Outside of special attacks or abilities like the EOTG or an attack like a stegadon's crosbow that can easily be a bit underwhelming. It's a bit of a weird spell. On the one hand getting a +1 to anything is absolutly briljant, on the other hand getting a +1 to a single dice when you're rolling say 20 of em isn't all that relevant. So it's a bit odd..

    Agree.
    On hordes CoF is pretty wasted or insignificant.
