Epidemius Tally rule

Postby effullbao » Sun Feb 04, 2018 12:51 am

So it seems obvious that if you kill Epidemius, that you no longer get his effects. The Tally of Pestilence doesn’t build if he’s off the board then right? So I can’t just summon or deep strike him in a little later or once I have already cleared 2 units to kickstart his effect RAW? I’m curious about wording for other units or other armies or effects like this.

If he's off the table then nothing counts for his effects, yes
