I've never really had an army with buff abilities, so I am a little curious if these bonuses stack with others. Like for example having 2 different units giving a unit +1 Attack, does this turn into +2 Attacks? Or something like one unit adding 1" to charges and another adding 2", would this mean +3" to charges?

Abilities do stack, though multiple instances of the same ability usually will not. A Khorne bloodsecrator, for example, gives +1 attack while wrathmongers also give +1 attack. Together they give +2 attacks, but having 'extra' units of bloodsecrators/mongers does not increase that.

So they stack with bonuses from other units and just not from multiple instances of the same unit?

They only do NOT stack if the power in question states it does not stack.

Aos is very much the game of maxing buffs for the win.

GW points don't bring balance. They exist purely for structure. You can get more balance from no points than you do from GW points. You however can get no structure in your game without points.

Baseline is that abilities do stack. Most abilities are worded such as to prevent the same ability stacking. Ultimately it will be down to the wording of the individual ability though - that is the thing that stops them stacking.

For instance, they'll usually be worded along these lines "Units within 6" of any of this unit get +1 attack".

The "any" there means it doesn't matter how many there are, it only applies once.

In that case would is apply again if there was a different unit at the same time? Since the wording only specifies one specific unit?

Is there a specific faction(s) you are looking at?

I mean for like Blades of Khorne, if I have two units of Wrathmongers on both sides of a group of Chaos Warriors, do they benefit from both or only one of them?

Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of Khorne units while they are wholly within 8" [b] of any units with this ability.[/b[ This ability has no effect on Wrathmongers.


for wrathmongers the wording is quite clear.

There are other units where it does stack. Like for IDK their soulscryer . 2 soulscryers can give a +6 to charge rolls.
