An Auric Runefather on Magmadroth is a single model armed with a Latchkey Grandaxe and Fyresteel Throwing Axes.

MOUNT: This model’s Magmadroth attacks with its Claws and Horns, Blazing Maw and a Roaring Fyrestream.


Roaring Fyrestream: Throwing back its head, a Magmadroth can spew a wave of flaming bile that sears through armour as though it were wax.
Do not use the attack sequence for an attack made with a Roaring Fyrestream. Instead, make the dice roll shown on the damage table above. If the roll is equal to or less than the number of models in the target unit, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. If the roll is equal to or less than the number of models in the target unit, and the target unit is within 6" of this model, the target unit suffers D6 mortal wounds instead.

Lashing Tail: Magmadroths can use their muscular spiked tails to pulverise scores of lesser prey with a single swipe.
At the end of the combat phase, roll a dice for each enemy unit within 3" of this model. If the roll is less than the number of models in that unit, it suffers D3 mortal wounds.

Volcanic Blood: Magmadroths pulse with the throbbing heat of the volcanic caverns where they make their fyrenests.
Roll a dice each time a wound is allocated to this model that was inflicted by a melee weapon. On a 4+ the attacking unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

Stare Down: A Runefather’s stern gaze can bring doubt to the mind of the most stalwart warrior.
In your hero phase, pick an enemy unit within 3" of this model. Subtract D3 from that unit’s Bravery characteristic until the start of your next hero phase.

Weapon-breaker: A latchkey grandaxe’s unique design allows the wielder to catch an enemy’s weapon between its metal teeth before breaking it with a forceful twist of the arm.
At the end of the combat phase, pick an enemy HERO within 3" of this model and roll a dice. On a 6, pick one of the melee weapons that model is armed with. Subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks made with that weapon for the rest of the battle. You cannot pick the same weapon to be affected by this ability more than once per battle.


Steadfast Advance: With a fiery glance down from his throne atop a mighty Magmadroth, a Runefather can compel his kin to march into battle against a thousand times their number to earn their fee in gold.
You can use this command ability at the start of your hero phase. If you do so, pick a friendly model with this command ability. Until the start of your next hero phase, do not take battleshock tests for friendly FYRESLAYERS units while they are wholly within 18" of that model.

Mortal Wounds
Some attacks, spells and abilities inflict mortal wounds. Do not make hit, wound or save rolls for mortal wounds. Instead, the damage inflicted on the target is equal to the number of mortal wounds that were suffered. Allocate any mortal wounds that are caused while a unit is attacking at the same time as any other wounds caused by the unit’s attacks, after all of the unit’s attacks have been completed. Mortal wounds caused at other times are allocated to models in the target unit as soon as they occur, in the same manner as wounds caused by damage from an attack.

After they have been allocated, a mortal wound is treated in the same manner as any other wound for all rules purposes.
Melee Weapons
In order to make an attack with a melee weapon, a model must be in range of the target unit.
Sometimes modifiers apply to characteristics or abilities. For example, a rule might add 1 to a hit roll or the Move characteristic of a model. Modifiers are cumulative. Modifiers can never reduce a dice roll to less than 1.

If a modifier applies to a random value, work out the random value first and then apply the modifier(s) to it. For example, if an ability adds 1 to a Damage characteristic of D3, the result would be worked out by rolling the D3 and adding 1 to the roll.
Making Attacks
Attacks are resolved one at a time using the following attack sequence. In some cases, you can resolve all of the attacks made by the same type of weapon at the same time (see Multiple Attacks).

1.Hit Roll: Roll a dice. If the roll equals or beats the attacking weapon’s To Hit characteristic, then it scores a hit and you must make a wound roll. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. A hit roll of 1 before modification always fails to hit the target, and a hit roll of 6 before modification always hits the target.
2.Wound Roll: Roll a dice. If the roll equals or beats the attacking weapon’s To Wound characteristic, then it is successful and the opposing player must make a save roll. If not, then the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. A wound roll of 1 before modification always fails, and a wound roll of 6 before modification is always successful.
3.Save Roll: The opposing player rolls a dice, modifying the roll by the attacking weapon’s Rend characteristic. For example, if a weapon has a -1 Rend characteristic, then 1 is subtracted from the save roll. If the result equals or beats the Save characteristic of the models in the target unit, the save succeeds and the attack sequence ends without causing any damage. If not, the save fails and the attack is successful, and you must determine damage on the target unit. A save roll of 1 before modification always fails.
4.Determine Damage: Each successful attack inflicts damage on the target unit equal to the Damage characteristic of the weapon making the attack. Most weapons have a Damage characteristic of 1, but some have a Damage characteristic of 2 or more.
Command Abilities
If you have any HEROES in your army, you can use command abilities. Some command abilities are available to all armies, like the three on the right, while others are specific to certain models and appear on their warscroll. Some of these command abilities can only be used if that model is your general; when this is the case, it will be noted in the rules for the command ability.

In order to use any command ability you must spend 1 command point. You start the battle with 1 command point for each warscroll battalion you have in your army. In addition, you receive 1 command point at the start of each of your hero phases. You can use the same command ability several times in the same phase as long as you have enough command points to do so. Any command points you do not use can be used in a future turn. A command ability will usually specify when it is used; if it does not, it is used in your hero phase.
Battleshock test, battleshock roll
In the battleshock phase, both players must take battleshock tests for units from their army that have had models slain during the turn. The player whose turn it is tests first.

You must make a battleshock roll for each unit that has to take a battleshock test. To make a battleshock roll, roll a dice. Add the number of models from the unit that have been slain this turn to the dice roll, and add 1 to the unit’s Bravery characteristic for every 10 models that are in the unit when the test is taken.

If the modified battleshock roll is greater than the unit’s modified Bravery characteristic, the battleshock test has been failed. If the test is failed, for each point by which the modified roll exceeds the unit’s modified Bravery characteristic, one model in that unit must flee. You decide which of the models from your units flee – remove them from play and count them as having been slain.
