With furious bravery, the Battlesmiths keep their sacred icons aloft, rallying their warrior kin with the image of their grim-faced god. As they fight, the Battlesmiths recite the histories of the lodge, inspiring nearby Fyreslayers.

A Battlesmith is a single model armed with an Ancestral Battle-axe and Fyresteel Throwing Axes.


Icon of Grimnir: The Battlesmith raises his icon of Grimnir and recounts tales of past glories, inspiring his allies and setting their ur-gold runes ablaze so that they might fight till the bitter end.
In your hero phase, you can say that this model is raising its icon of Grimnir. If it does so, add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target friendly FYRESLAYERS units wholly within 12" of this model until the start of your next hero phase. However, if you do so, until the start of your next hero phase, friendly FYRESLAYERS units wholly within 12" of this model cannot retreat. A unit cannot benefit from this ability more than once per phase.

None Shall Defile the Icon: The holy icon of Grimnir is one of the strongest connections the Fyreslayers have to their absent god, and they will not see it lost.
If this model is slain, before it is removed from play, friendly FYRESLAYERS units wholly within 12" of this model can swear to protect the fallen icon. If a unit does so, that unit cannot make normal moves and charge moves for the rest of the battle, but you can re-roll hit and wound rolls for attacks made with melee weapons by that 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.
Normal Moves
Moves made in the movement phase are referred to as normal moves, to differentiate them from charge moves (made in the charge phase) and pile-in moves (made in the combat phase). A model making a normal move can move a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move characteristic shown on its warscroll.
Charge roll, charge move
Any of your units within 12" of the enemy in your charge phase can attempt to make a charge move. Pick an eligible unit and make a charge roll for it by rolling 2D6. Each model in the unit can move a number of inches equal to the charge roll. You cannot make a charge move with a unit that has run or retreated earlier in the turn, or with a unit that is within 3" of an enemy unit.

The first model you move from a unit making a charge move must finish the move within ½" of an enemy model (you do not have to pick the target for the charge before making the charge roll). If that’s impossible, or you decide not to make the charge move, the charge fails and no models in the unit can move in this phase.

Once all models in one unit have made their charge moves, you can pick another eligible unit to make a charge attempt, until all units that you want to make charge attempts have done so.
Melee Weapons
In order to make an attack with a melee weapon, a model must be in range of the target unit.
