- Knows 2 spells.
- Can select from the Learned Spells 1, 2, 3, and 4 of its chosen Path and the Hereditary Spell of its army.
The Wizard gains Channel (1) and selects its spells as described in Spell Selection.
- Knows 1 spell.
- Can select between the Learned Spell 1 of its chosen Path and the Hereditary Spell of its army.
The Wizard selects its spells as described in Spell Selection
If the attack hits with a natural to-hit roll of '6', the attack causes two hits instead of one.
Enemy units cannot declare Stand and Shoot Charge Reactions against the model’s unit
If the attack successfully hits with a natural to-hit roll of '6', it automatically wounds with no to-wound roll needed. Shooting Attacks using the Hopeless Shot can only automatically wound if the first to-hit roll is a natural '6'. Note that the second to-hit roll must still be successful in order to hit the target. If the attack can be turned into more than one hit (e.g. a hit with Area Attack, Battle Focus, or Penetrating), only a single hit, chosen by the attacker, automatically wounds. All other hits must roll to wound as normal.
The attack doesn't have any special effects. However, it interacts with other rules, such as Otherworldly. Model parts
with Magical Attacks apply it also to their Special Attacks (such as Stomp Attacks, Impact Hits and Breath Attack).
Successful Aegis saves taken against the attack must be rerolled.
The attack doesn't have any special effect. However, it interacts with other rules, such as Flammable and Regeneration.
A model part with Grind Attacks resolves these attacks at its own Agility. It must choose an enemy unit in base
contact with it. The chosen enemy unit suffers a number of hits equal to the value stated in brackets (X). These hits
are resolved with the model part’s own Strength and Armour Penetration.
If a model has both Grind Attacks and Impact Hits
, it may only use one of these rules in the same Round of Combat
(its controlling player may choose which). When several model parts in the same unit have Grind Attacks and when
X is a random number (e.g. Grind Attacks (2D3)), roll for the number of hits separately for each model part.
This attack may be used by units containing models with Sweeping Attack.
When the unit Advance Moves or March Moves, you may nominate a single unengaged enemy unit that the unit with Sweeping Attack moved through or over during this move (meaning their bases were overlapping, even partially).
The whole unit makes the Sweeping Attack against the nominated enemy unit, which is resolved when the March or Advance Move is completed. Follow the description in the unit profile.
These attacks hit automatically and count as ranged Special Attacks. Each Sweeping
Attack can only be performed once per Player Turn.
Attack Attribute - Shooting.
All hits caused by Field Artillery's Shooting Attacks gain Flaming Attacks and Magical Attacks.
After Deployment (including units with Scout), models with Vanguard may perform a 12" move. The move is performed as an Advance Move in the Movement Phase, including any actions and restrictions the unit would normally have (such as Wheeling, Reforming, joining units, leaving units and so on). The 12" distance is used instead of the unit's Advance Rate and March Rate. This move cannot be used to move within 12" of enemy units. This is decreased to 6" for enemy units which have either Scouted or Vanguarded. Units that have moved in this way may not Declare Charges in the first Player Turn (if their side has the first turn). If both players have units with Vanguard, alternate moving units one at a time, starting with the player that finished deploying last. Instead of moving a unit, a player may declare to not move any more Vanguarding units.
The model gains +1 Health Point and changes its base size to 75x100mm. The roll for the number of hits from its Stomp Attacks is subject to Maximised Roll.
Attacks & Weapons, Melee
Unsaved wounds caused by the attacks are multiplied into the value given in brackets (X). If the value is a dice (e.g. Multiple Wounds (D3)), roll one dice for each unsaved wound with Multiple Wounds. The amount of wounds that the attack is multiplied into can never be higher than the Health Points Characteristic of the target (excluding Health Points lost previously in the battle). For example, if a Multiple Wounds (D6) attack wounds a unit of Trolls (HP 3) and rolls a '5' for the multiplier, the number of unsaved wounds is reduced to 3, even if the Troll unit has already lost one or two Health Points previously in battle.
If Clipped Wings is stated after the X value in brackets, any unsaved wound caused by the attack against a model with Fly is multiplied into X+1 instead of X.
When a Character is joined to a unit in which at least one model has Bodyguard, that Character gains Stubborn. When Characters or Character types are stated in brackets, Bodyguard only works for the specified Characters or Character types.
If the model is present on the Battlefield at the beginning of a friendly Magic Phase, you don't draw a Flux Card. Instead apply the following:
5 Magic Dice (both players)
4+D3 Veil Tokens (Active Player)
During step 3 of the Magic Phase Sequence, each of the Active Player's models with Channel may add X Veil Tokens to the owner's Veil Token Pool. This Universal Rule is cumulative, adding X Veil Tokens of each independent instance of Channel to the model's total Channel value (so e.g. a model with Channel (1) and Channel (2) is treated like a model with Channel (3)).
Units with at least one model with Scoring are considered to be Scoring Units, which are used for winning Secondary Objectives (see section XVI.2 “Scoring Secondary Objectives", page 67). Every army needs a few Scoring units to be able to complete Secondary Objectives, which is why units with Scoring are marked in the Army Books with a special pennant icon:
Scoring can be lost during the game:
- A unit that is Fleeing loses Scoring for as long as it if Fleeing.
- An Ambushing unit that enters the Battlefield on Game Turn 4 or later loses Scoring.
- A unit that has performed a Post-Combat Reform loses Scoring until the start of the following Player Turn.
Attacks & Weapons, Melee
A charging model part with Devastating Charge, or using a weapon with Devastating Charge, gains the Model Rules
and Characteristic modifiers stated in brackets. For example, a charging model part with Devastating Charge (+1
Strength, Poison Attacks) gains +1 Strength and Poison Attacks when it is charging. This rule is cumulative: a model
part with several instances of Devastating Charge applies all Attack Attributes and Characteristics modifiers from all
of them when charging.
The model must roll an additional D6 when taking Dangerous Terrain Tests . A model with Chariot can only be part of a unit consisting entirely of models with Chariot, unless noted otherwise.
- As a Catapult (4) Artillery Weapon :
Range 12-60", Shots 1, Str 3 , AP 0, [Multiple Wounds (D3, Clipped Wings)].
This weapon always hits on a roll equal to or greater than its Aim.
At Initiative Step 10, a charging model part with Impact Hits must choose an enemy unit that is in base contact with the attacking model's Front Facing. This unit suffers a number of hits equal to the value stated in brackets (X). These hits are resolved with the attacking model part's Strength and Armour Penetration.
If a model has both Grind Attacks and Impact Hits, it may only use one of these rules in the same Round of Combat (its controlling player may choose which). In multipart models, only model parts that also have Harnessed or Inanimate can use their Impact Hits. When several models in the same unit have Impact Hits, and when X is a random number (e.g. Impact Hits (D6)), roll for the number of hits separately for each model part.
If the attack wounds with a natural to-wound roll of 6+, its Armour Penetration is set to 10 and the target of the
attack cannot take a Regeneration save against it.
The Champion of a unit with Wizard Conclave gains +1 Health Point in addition to the normal Characteristics increases associated with being a Champion, and is a Wizard Adept.
This Champion may select up to two spells from predetermined spells given in brackets after Wizard Conclave.
This overrides the Spell Selection rules connected to being a Wizard Adept.
Model parts with Harnessed cannot make Supporting Attacks and cannot use Weapons. Shooting Weapons carried by model parts with Harnessed can be used by other model parts of the same model (as long as they do not have Harnessed or Inanimate). A model with with at least one model part with Harnessed is considered to be mounted.
When a unit composed entirely of models with Swiftstride rolls Charge Range, Flee Distance, Pursuit Distance or Overrun Distance, it rolls an additional D6 (normally this will lead to rolling 3D6) and discards the lowest D6 rolled.
The model automatically passes Dangerous Terrain Tests taken due to Terrain.
If more than half of a unit's models have Strider, the unit never loses their Steadfast or Rank Bonus due to Terrain.
Sometimes Strider is linked to a specific type of Terrain, stated in brackets.
In this case, models with Strider are considered Striders only when interacting with such type of Terrain.
Close Combat Attacks allocated towards a model with Distracting suffer a -1 to-hit modifier. This to-hit modifier cannot be combined with any other negative to-hit modifiers.
At step 8 of the Pre-Game Sequence (after Spell Selection) an army that includes units with Scout must state which of its units with Scout will use it, starting with the player that picked the Deployment Zone. Deploy your army as usual, but without deploying any of the Scouting units. These units are placed after all other non-Scouting units have been deployed. They can either be deployed in your Deployment Zone, using the normal rules, or they can be deployed outside the Deployment Zone, but must be more than 18" away from any enemy units. This is decreased to 12" if the Scouting unit is deployed entirely within a Forest, Ruins, Field, Building, or Water Terrain Feature. Scouting units that are deployed outside their player's Deployment Zone may not Declare Charges in the first Player Turn (if their side has the first turn). If both players have Scouting units, alternate deploying one unit at a time, starting with the player that finished deploying first.
Once per Shooting Phase, an unengaged Engineer may select a single War Machine within 6″ that has not fired yet to gain the following effects:
- Replace the Aim of one of the War Machine's Artillery Weapons with the value given in brackets (X+).
- You may reroll the roll on the Misfire Table.
- You may reroll the dice (all of them or none) for determining the number of hits of a Flamethrower Artillery Weapon.
Units in base contact with one or more enemy models with Fear suffer -1 Discipline. At the start of each Round of Combat, such units must take a Discipline Test, called a Fear Test. If this test is failed, the models in the unit are Shaken until the end of the Round of Combat. Models that have Fear themselves are immune to the effects of Fear.
A unit consisting solely of models with Feigned Flight that voluntarily chooses to Flee as a Charge Reaction, and subsequently passes a Rally Test in its next Player Turn, doesn't become Shaken. Furthermore, the Reform that is made after Rallying in this case doesn't prevent the unit from moving nor from shooting (but it still counts as having moved for shooting purposes). This rule cannot be applied if a unit fails to rally on the next friendly Player Turn or involuntarily Flees, such as a result of a failed Panic Test or if it was already Fleeing when being charged.
Fortitude is a Special Save . Fortitude Saves cannot be taken against attacks with Lethal Strike that rolled a natural 6+ to wound, or against attacks with Flaming Attacks
The model treats all Terrain Features as Open Terrain for movement purposes, but must abide by the Unit Spacing rule upon the completion of its moves.
During the first Round of Combat, failed to-hit rolls from attacks with Hatred must be rerolled.
The maximum range of the model’s Artillery Weapon is doubled. Enemy units hit by the weapon suffer −1″ Advance Rate to a minimum of 3″ and −2″ March Rate to a minimum of 6″ until the start of the next friendly Player Turn.
The model can draw Lines of Sight in any direction (i.e. it is not limited by the Front Arc) from any point on its base (remember that Charge Moves are limited by a single Wheel of no more than 90°, and that Stand and Shoot Charge Reactions can only be done against enemies in the Front Arc) and can always use Shooting Attacks from any rank (they are not limited to shooting from first and second rank).
Units with at least one R&F model with Skirmisher are formed into a skirmish formation. They are not placed in base to base contact with each other. Instead, models are placed with a 12.5 mm distance between them. This gap is considered part of the unit for Cover purposes, and will have the same Size as the models in the unit. Other than this gap between models, units with Skirmisher follow the normal rules for forming units and therefore have a Front, two Flanks, a Rear, can perform Supporting Attacks, and so on. Units in skirmish formation gain Hard Target and Light Troops, never block Line of Sight, and when units in skirmish formation would contribute to Hard Cover, they contribute to Soft Cover instead.
Inanimate - Melee
Model parts with Inanimate cannot make Close Combat Attacks and cannot use Shooting Weapons. Shooting Weapons carried by model parts with Inanimate can be used by other model parts of the same model (as long as they do not have Harnessed or Inanimate).
The model gains Fearless and its unit automatically passes all Break Tests. Characters with Unbreakable can only join units consisting entirely of models with Unbreakable. Units with one or more models with Unbreakable can only be joined by Characters with Unbreakable.
For dice rolls subject to Maximised Roll, roll one additional D6 and discard the lowest D6 rolled.
These rules are cumulative (e.g. for a roll affected by two instances of Maximised Roll, you roll two additional D6 and discard the two lowest D6 rolled).
The results of the discarded D6 are ignored for all intents and purposes.
roll one additional D6 and discard the highest D6 rolled.
These rules are cumulative (e.g. for a roll affected by two instances of Maximised Roll, you roll two additional D6 and discard the two lowest D6 rolled).
The results of the discarded D6 are ignored for all intents and purposes
Units composed entirely of models with Light Troops are allowed to make any number of Reforms when performing Advance Moves or March Moves. They are allowed to shoot even if they Marched or Reformed. No model can end its movement with its centre further away than its March Rate from its starting position, around any obstructions (including the Unit Spacing rule). This means that when checking the distance travelled by a model, check the path the model would have taken if it was alone, with the exception that the unit as a whole cannot break the Unit Spacing rule while performing the move. If a model performed any action during the movement (such as a Sweeping Attack), the distance moved is counted from its starting position to the point on the Battlefield where it performed that action and then to its final position.
If more than half the models in a unit have Light Troops, the unit always counts as having 0 Full Ranks. Characters with Light Troops that are joined to units with one or more models without Light Troops, lose this rule for as long as they remain with the unit. An Infantry Character joined to an Infantry unit with both Light Troops and the same Size as the Character gains Light Troops for as long as it remains with the unit.
A Close Combat Attack with Lightning Reflexes gains a +1 to-hit modifier. Model parts with this Attack Attribute wielding Great Weapons do not gain this +1 to-hit modifier, but strike with the Great Weapon at the Initiative Step corresponding to their Agility instead of always striking at Initiative Step 0.
The model cannot Pursue, Declare Charges or Declare Flee as Charge Reaction. Characters can never join units with War Machines, and Characters with War Machine cannot join units at all.
When a War Machine fails a Panic Test, instead of Fleeing it is Shaken until the end of the next Player Turn. War Machines that fail a Break Test are automatically destroyed. War Machines and units Engaged in Combat with them cannot make Combat Reforms.
When a unit charges a War Machine, it can move into base contact by having its Front Facing contact any point of the War Machine's base (it must still maximise the number of models in base contact, see subsection II.1.A “Bases and Base Contact", page 4 and Figure 1 page 4). No Align Move is allowed. Ignore the War Machine's Facing, as it does not have any due to its round base.
During Spell Selection, the Wizard must select its spells between the Learned Spell 1 of the Paths it has access to and the Hereditary Spell of its army. This rule overrides the Spell Selection rules connected to being Wizard Apprentice, Adept or Master.
- Knows 4 spells.
- Can select from the Learned Spells 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 of its chosen Path and the Hereditary Spell of its army.
The Wizard gains Channel (1) and a +1 modifier to its casting rolls, and selects its spells as described in Spell Selection
If the model is mounted by a Character, ignore the rider’s Armour Equipment (including Armour Enchantments) and Personal Protections, unless specifically stated otherwise (such as Armour Enchantments that affect the bearer’s model).
The model must be deployed in, and can only join, a unit that includes at least one R&F model with Infernal Brand. The model can never voluntarily leave its unit.
The model gains Unstable. Models with Undead cannot perform March Moves, unless their unit starts the March Move within the range of a friendly model's Commanding Presence. The only Charge Reaction a unit with one or more models with Undead can make is Hold.
When units consisting entirely of models with Undead lose Health Points due to Unstable, the number of lost Health Points can be reduced in some situations. Apply the modifiers in the following order:
3. IftheunitreceivesRallyAroundtheFlag,reducethenumberoflostHealthPointswiththeunit'scurrentRank Bonus. Units with no Rank Bonus reduce the number of Health Points lost by 1 instead.
The unit cannot Declare Charges and cannot move normally (Advance, March, Reform) in the Movement Phase (which also means they cannot perform Magical Moves). The model loses Swiftstride (and can never gain it), but always charges, Flees, Pursues and Overruns the distance stated in brackets.
In the Movement Phase, at the end of step 2 of the the it with Random Movement moves using the rules for Pursuing units, except that they can freely choose which direction to rotate towards before rolling the Pursuit Distance, cannot move off the Board Edge and only take Dangerous Terrain Tests if they actually charge an enemy unit (they still test as normal when Fleeing, Pursuing a Broken enemy or Overrunning).
Whenever a unit with Random Movement needs a March Rate (e.g. when Post-Combat Reforming), use the potential maximum value of X as its March Rate.
Characters with Random Movement can only join units with Random Movement (by moving into contact with them during the Movement Phase or by being deployed inside), and units with Random Movement can only be joined by Characters with Random Movement. Units with Random Movement cannot enter Buildings. If a unit has several sets of Random Movement, use the one with the lowest average (in case of a tie, you may choose which version to use). A model with Random Movement cannot move in the same phase as it arrives on the Battlefield as Reinforcement (Dawn Assault) or Ambusher.
The attack may not be used if the attacking model has made an Advance Move, March Move, Reform or Pivot during
the current Player Turn.
The model cannot be the General.
Unless selected as a mount for a Character, a model with War Platform gains Not a Leader and Character, with the following exceptions:
- ItdoesnotcounttowardstheCharacterscategory(forArmyListcreation). - ItcannotIssueDuels,AcceptDuelsorMakeWay.
The model can join units even if it has Towering Presence, and having Chariot does not prevent it from joining units without Chariot. When joined to a unit, it must always be placed in the centre of the front rank, possibly pushing back other models with Front Rank, and must keep its position in the centre of the front rank at all times (as long as it is joined to the unit). If two positions are equally central (e.g. in a unit with an even number of models in the first rank and a War Platform replacing an uneven number of models per rank), the War Platform can be placed in either of these positions. If the War Platform cannot be placed in the centre of the the front rank (e.g. due to Mismatching Bases or the front rank being too narrow), the model cannot join the unit. This means that a War Platform can never join a unit with Mismatching Bases and that only a single War Platform can be in the same unit unless noted otherwise.
The model gains Tall and can never be joined or join a unit (unless it is a War Platform). A model with Towering Presence increases its Rally Around the Flag and Commanding Presence ranges by 6".
Attack Attribute - Close Combat.
Whenever the model loses a Health Point, it gains +1 Attack Value. Whenever it gains a Health Point, it suffers -1 Attack Value.
During the Movement Phase, a unit containing one or more models with Swift Reform may execute a Swift Reform
instead of a Reform . The unit makes a Reform with the following exceptions:
• The unit is not prohibited from shooting in the next Shooting Phase (but will still suffer the to-hit modifier for
moving and shooting).
• The unit can perform an Advance Move after the Reform. For the purpose of no model being able to end its
movement with its centre farther away than its Advance Rate from its starting position, measure this distance
after the Reform.
• No model can end its movement (after an Advance Move) with its centre farther away than its March Rate
from its starting position before the Reform.
The range of Academy Training to and from the bearer’s unit is increased from 8″ to 12″.
The model gains Fear and is immune to the effects of Terror. When a unit with one or more models with Terror Declares a Charge, its target must take a Panic Test. If the test is failed, the target of the charge must declare a Flee Charge Reaction, if able to do so.
The bearer’s unit and enemy units in base contact with the bearer’s unit gain Magic Resistance (2) that is also applied to friendly spells. This Magic Resistance value cannot be increased.
The model cannot take any Special Items from this Army Book and cannot cast Curse of Nezibkesh (Hereditary Spell). It cannot join units with more than half of their models with Infernal Brand or units of Shackled Slaves.
