Spiker

Spikers scuttle into battle with a basket of clinking poison-bottles lashed to their backs. They hand out liberal doses of horrible venoms to any who wish to tip their blades, saving the nastiest for the barbs of their scorpisquig stikkas.

PITCHED BATTLE PROFILE

Unit Size: 1      Points: 240

Notes: Brewgit, Spiker, Boggleye, Shroomancer and Scaremonger must be taken as a set for a total of 240 points. Although taken as a set, each is a separate unit.

DESCRIPTION

A Spiker is a single model armed with a Scorpisquig Stikka.

ABILITIES

Hallucinogenic Fungus Brews: Gobbapalooza shamans drink long draughts of hallucinogenic fungus brew before the battle begins, making them almost impervious to pain. However, as the battle progresses the effects start to wear off.
In the first battle round, add 2 to save rolls for attacks that target this model. In the second battle round, add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target this model.

Poison Brewer: The Spiker grabs bottled poisons from his back-basket and makes a show of anointing nearby grots’ weapons with them, chanting mumbo-jumbo spells to render them ‘extra-nasty’.
In your hero phase, you can make a Gobbapalooza Know-wotz roll for this model. If you do so, roll a dice. On a 3+ pick 1 friendly MOONCLAN GROT unit wholly within 18" of this model that is visible to them. You can re-roll wound rolls of 1 for that unit until your next hero phase.

Slippery Git: Gobbapalooza shamans seek to put as many of their fellow grots between themselves and incoming enemy fire as possible.
Subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks made with missile weapons that target this model while it is within 3" of a friendly MOONCLAN unit with 3 or more models.

Modifiers
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.

Missile Weapons
In order to attack with a missile weapon, the model using the weapon must be in range of the target unit (i.e. within the maximum distance, in inches, of the Range listed for the weapon making the attack), and the target unit must be visible to the model with the weapon (if unsure, stoop down and look from behind the shooting model to see if a model from the target unit is visible). For the purposes of determining visibility, a model can see through other models in its unit.

Some missile weapons have a Range characteristic with a minimum range, for example 6"-48". Such weapons cannot attack units that are wholly within the shorter range.
