So I know, way back when, Psychic test were based on Leadership rolls. These days Psychic tests are a self contained dice mechanic that is the same as Age of Sigmar magic.

Okay, so there is this Nurgle model Blightbringer that lowers enemy leadership by -1, and -2 to enemy Psykers.

What is the point in the -2 to enemy Psykers?

Nearly all the Psykers I can think of are solo models. So they never really need to worry about leadership. The Blightbringer is suppose to cause Psychic distortion and that is for some reason shown in game by the leadership modifier. So I get the -1 leadership to multiple model units, they are the only models that have to worry about leadership.

But shouldn't the -2 for Psykers be for their Warp test? Otherwise the -2 for Psykers is pretty harmless.

Some psychic powers use opposed tests based off leadership. If a model's leadership has been lowered, they are more vulnerable.

Thanks for that info. Will have to keep an eye out for those types of powers.
