Ravening Direflock

The spectral crows of a Ravening Direflock are harbingers of doom, filling the minds of those who hear their piercing caws with an inescapable sense of dread. They circle over the battlefield, harrying those who try to flee the carnage. Left unattended they fly off to roost in the warping wilds, with some even nesting in the crenelations of the Varanspire.
PITCHED BATTLE PROFILE

Unit Size: 1      Points: 30
Battlefield Role: Endless Spell

DESCRIPTION

A Ravening Direflock consists of 3 models (if it is dispelled, remove all 3 models).

MAGIC

Summon Ravening Direflock: Dark feathers borne on the wind coalesce to form the terrible shapes of the Ravening Direflock.
Summon Ravening Direflock has a casting value of 5. Only BEASTS OF CHAOS WIZARDS can attempt to cast this spell. If successfully cast, set up a Ravening Direflock model wholly within 12" of the caster and more than 3" from any units, then set up the second and third Ravening Direflock models wholly within 6" of the first and more than 3" from any units.

ABILITIES

Harbingers of Dark Omens: Those who hear the cawing of these fell creatures experience terrifying visions of their own impending doom.
Subtract 2 from the Bravery characteristic of units while they are within 6" of any Ravening Direflock models. BEASTS OF CHAOS units are not affected by this ability.

Black-souled Cowardice: Should a combatant approach the eldritch avians of the Direflock in the vain hope of ending the waking nightmares that afflict them, the birds will take wing, only to settle elsewhere on the battlefield and resume their dispiriting cawing.
If a unit finishes a move within 1" of a Ravening Direflock model, remove that Ravening Direflock model from the battlefield. The player whose turn is taking place must set it up again exactly 3D6" from its previous location and more than 3" from any units, and then set up the two remaining Ravening Direflock models wholly within 6" of the first model and more than 3" from any units.

KEYWORDS
ENDLESS SPELL, RAVENING DIREFLOCK
Unbinding and Dispelling
A WIZARD can attempt to unbind an endless spell when it is initially cast as normal. In addition, a WIZARD can attempt to dispel one endless spell at the start of each of their hero phases. If a wizard attempts to dispel an endless spell, they can attempt to cast one less spell than normal that phase.

In order to dispel an endless spell, first pick an endless spell model within 30" of the wizard and visible to them, and then roll 2D6. If the roll is greater than the casting value of the spell, the endless spell is dispelled. An endless spell model cannot be subjected to more than one dispel attempt per hero phase.

When an endless spell is dispelled its model is removed from play; the model can then be used again if the same endless spell is successfully cast later in the battle.
Casting and Unbinding Spells
A WIZARD can attempt to cast spells in its own hero phase. You cannot attempt to cast the same spell more than once in the same turn (even with a different wizard).

In order to cast a spell, first say which spell the wizard is going to attempt to use (it must be one they know). To cast the spell, roll 2D6. If the total is equal to or greater than the casting value of the spell, the spell is successfully cast.

If a spell is cast, the opposing player can choose one of their WIZARDS that is within 30" of the caster to attempt to unbind the spell before its effects are applied. To unbind a spell, roll 2D6. If the roll beats the roll used to cast the spell, then the spell is not successfully cast. Only one attempt can be made to unbind a spell.
