        I think the suggestion was if she rolls above 6 on her CC dice
eg 7,8,9,10,11,12 (>55% chance) that its an auto kill. However that
interpretation of the rules ( I havent seen the exact rules so I cant be sure,
and hey if someone at GW wants something to act in a certain way we all know
that the written rules dont mean much......) is a bit harsh especially
if we condsider her getting extra dice due to help from her wind-rider,guardian,
aspect warrior etc etc etc buddies. That would make her pretty disgusting -
worse that Ragnar, worse than chaos armies consisting of only primarchs,chaos
marine legions, tarantulas, thunderhawks,trolls&minotaurs. Maybe Im wrong
about what is being implied here. Rolling 2d6 and auto-killing with a 6 on
either would be a lot fairer (But I hope its not screwed over like the standard
banshee ability - wrecked by ANY save - come on we all know 6+ is worthless
why didnt they just make it a +1 save (ie 6+ for no save, 2+ and better cant
be hurt - it would have been much better (and fairer) than the current
screwing-over).*END of OFF TOPIC RANT*
