What Is The Purpose Of Totems?

Post by Pellynor » Tue Jan 10, 2017 2:07 pm

Hey all,

I'm just getting into Age of Sigmar and I've noticed that the old Battle Standard Bearers have the 'Totem' keyword. I've looked around but I can't seem to find anything with regards to what this keyword does, if anything at all. Anyone else encountered this or know what it does?

Thanks

I know that some of the scenery has the keyword Totem (providing a benefit if a Totem keyword unit is in the army for instance). I don't have the chaos book or any of the others (which I suspect is where that information is). I do have the General's Handbook and I didn't see anything about it but I could have missed it too.

I'm sure someone else will pop up and enlighten us exactly :)
