Euh it is shit like this that makes me despise AoS stuff. Just say sanctified silver. First because it is alliterative and therefore sounds better and two because adding mort or death if we want to get French about it is just really dumb.

Of course you do  :closed-eyes:

If I could play Sigmar's advocate for a moment, the description says "He also carries stakes carved from Aqshian firewood that burst into flames when they pierce the flesh of undead creatures". Because the properties of even mundane materials change depending on the Realm they're from, it's entirely possible that within AOS, "mortsilver" has its own properties. Not even all real-world silvers are made equal, after all:

But even in that example firewood will in the French translation of rules be a one to one swap, mortsilver will be what deathargent. Lame...very very lame.

The Enemy Within being filled with bad German puns I'll take, but this sort of adje-noun bullshit gets really old really fast and even worse when you start making it all 'fancy' with foreign languages. That Khorne Bloodreavers carry 'meatripper axes' is a turd of a name that this gun fires 'mortsilver' bullets is a turd covered in gold flakes thus all the more offensive.

Very nice mini and the vibe of the art for the game I can dig but this shit just doesn't fly.

It is bad enough there are issues with personalizing in the Back Table area, let's not continue here, eh? :icon_wink:

Yep, W:AoS is a world where silver isn't enough on the undead. Ok.
