Even the mightiest axe strike can be turned aside at the last moment if the timing is right.
Parry (*)URL Copied!
Models with this rule gain a Ward save in close combat as indicated in the brackets. This is cumulative with other sources of Parry. It cannot be used against attacks made against the model's flank or rear (they do not have enough freedom of movement to turn around quickly enough), nor can it be used against attacks that Hit automatically, attacks that are made at +3 Strength over the model's own Strength value, nor can it be used by mounted models, unless specified.
