Ok question about Khorne in particular. The Daemonic strike ability adds one to the lightning strike ability. The Frenzy ability adds 10 troop value and says frenzied soldiers add 1 assault action to boardings. Does the Frenzy buff work on both Assault Boat and Boarding Action abilities?

Don't think so, but I'm honestly not certain. Try using the favour and count the number of actions after they get there.

Does not work with assault boats, but adds one more action to the standard boarding action ability

Yep, it doesn't seem to apply to assault boats. Standard boarding and lightning strikes only.

However, carriers do still make good ships to focus on boarding anyway, because assault boats and boarding action don't share a cooldown. An Emperor-class battleship can technically get 9 boarding actions that way.

Now imagine for a second, an Ork BB fully carrier-specced. That's six assault boat squadrons, eight boarding torps, another five (potentially more with Goff favor and/or Waaaaagh! skill) assault actions from boarding action and potentially one long-range action via a Shokk Attack Lance. Yeah, that's gonna break something. :lol:
