Default Psyker Squad and Calladius question.

If I for example used a psker squad to lower a carnifex leadership to 4 or less and it was out of synapse range. Than I hit the carnifex with the calliduis flame template weapon. Would it wound on a 2 and insta kill the carnifex. If so that would be awesome against a 300 pt god fex.

I've been hearing early reports of the entire squad counting as a psyker, not psykers.

I can't check the RAW though because I don't own the IG codex.

Essentially, yes.

Yes, this is possible, BUT the Carnifex has to be out of synapse range, as units in synapse are immune to instant death.

That's what I thought too. I was searching for errata on the forum, but couldn't find anything like that. :shifty:

Look at the witch hunter FAQ. The shreader turns your leadership into toughness. Like I said the carnifex has to be out of synapse. But you can also insta kill khaine if he fails his invul save.
