Is there anything prevent Baranova from gaining fury with long shadows instead of focus? I cannot find one, and also the long shadows rule would overwrite it anyways correct?
If not could Baranova store up fury turn after turn since she doesn’t “drop” fury at the start of her turn, and then use it to cast spells? Since casting spells says either use fury or focus. - Casting spells with fury is not part of fury manipulation rule.
The Spellcaster rules says they can use focus to cast spells, but doesn’t say “only” or limit it to focus in any way.
Baranova’s army kills 3 models with separate arcane attacks, she chooses to gain fury each time. Gaining three fury tokens.
Then on her next turn she would go back up to 7 focus, and still have 3 fury sitting on her as it doesn’t go away. Then she has effectively 10 “resource” to spend on casting spells?
Note transferring/healing and other uses for fury specifically require fury manipulation rule, but casting spells states you can use focus or fury. I don’t believe it requires fury manipulation.
