Thought this was a good topic to talk about.

Ok.... Windwall is what Borka kegslayer for trolls and Vlad for Khador has.... I have official rulings to clear up about what windwall says about non-magical ranged attacks targeting this model or others completely within 3 auto miss. This article below talks about a menoth character paladin of the wall Vilmon who can't suffer damage from non-magical ranged or melee attacks when he uses the impervious wall ability. It is one and all the same principal.

"Weapons with the "magical weapon" still make their respective type of attack (ranged or melee) but the attack is also "magical" (not to be confused with "magic").
Magical weapons can hurt Vilmon while he is in Impervious Wall."


This is just to clarify things. This is an official ruling.

Unless wind wall says they can't be damaged by magical attacks, a blast will still damage. The shot may auto miss, like shooting at stealth, but the blast damage, and effects of a hit (not a direct hit) will still happen. Just because you auto miss doesn't mean you are immune to damage/effects.

true about blasts, but this article was brought up by people that where referencing to the Magical ranged weapons that gunmages and other casters or units that have it. Do they go through windwall or impervious wall for the paladins of the wall like normal and they are right.

Seems like what I like to call 40k-itis. People asking "is a magical attack really magical". Warmachine was written in a literal way. Their rules are amongst the tightest of systems. It's best to play things literally.
