Default Death company question

If you shoot at the death company with an AP3 weapon do they still get to roll their armor save once? (normally they reroll failed armor saves)

Im not a BA player but Im pretty sure they do not. Not unless its an invulnerable save. If something bypasses the armor it does not matter if it can be re-rolled normally the ap cuts through it anyway. If something like that were allowed it would say so in their special rules.

They use the Feel no Pain USR. Meaning that any AP 3 weapons of strength 7 or less still allow them their special save.

They don't get this save vs. ANY weapon of strength 8+ AND any CLOSE COMBAT weapons that ignore saves.

Actually I thought feel no pain meant that any weapon or shot that denied armor saves and double strength weapons ignored it. It wasnt just power weapons.

Thanks for the clarification Falstead, my friend was saying that they got to reroll their 3+ save which is obvously not the same thing as feel no pain.

when faced with a rule like this, for an army that you don't have the codex for, it's often best to politely ask to read your opponent's rulebook.
