Gloomspite GitzSquig Herd

Squig Herd

Herds of Cave Squigs scamper into battle gnashing their huge fangs and sinking them into anything that comes near. Their tough little grot herders keep the squigs moving in the right direction, using pointy sticks and noisemakers to really rile them up.

Unit Size: 6 - 24      Points: 70
Battlefield Role: None
Notes: Battleline in Gloomspite Gitz army if general is MOONCLAN.


A Squig Herd unit has any number of models, each armed with a Fang-filled Gob.

SQUIG HERDERS: 1 in every 6 models in this unit must be a Squig Herder model instead of a Cave Squig model. A Squig Herder is armed with a Squig Prodder instead of a Fang-filled Gob.


Go Dat Way!: A Squig Herder keeps any nearby squigs heading in the right direction.
You can re-roll run and charge rolls for this unit while it includes any Squig Herders.

Squigs Go Wild: When a Cave Squig decides to flee it snaps at anything that is foolish enough to get in its way.
Roll a dice each time a Cave Squig model from this unit flees, before the model is removed from play. On a 4+ the nearest other unit within 6" of the fleeing model suffers 1 mortal wound. If two or more such units are equally close, you can pick which suffers the mortal wound.


The MOONCLAN keyword is used in following Gloomspite Gitz warscrolls:

When you pick a unit to make a normal move, you can declare that it will run. Make a run roll for the unit by rolling a dice. Add the result of the run roll to the Move characteristic of all models in the unit for that movement phase. The unit can then move up to that distance in inches. Models in a unit that runs can’t shoot or charge later in the same turn.
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.
