Savior Protocols vs Splash Damage

Post by Ronin » Tue May 29, 2018 1:36 pm

Say I hit a Ghostkeel and the drones behind it with Vortex of Doom. What happens?

A) Savior protocol kicks in first and all the wounds are allocated to the drones.
B) Vortex of doom hits both units first and does damage on the drones. Assuming the drones survive, they can use Savior protocols to allocate the ones inflicted on the ghostkeel.

The vortex does damage to the target model's unit, and all units within range. This happens at the same time. As with all effects that happen at the same time, it is the controlling player's choice which effect occurs first (this is the same as, for instance, when you have multiple "at the end of the movement phase" effects like 'deep strike', or similar effects).

As the controlling player chooses, he may choose to have the drones take their damage first, then the Ghostkeel, which may, at this point, not have a drone left to protect it.
