Gloomspite Gitz – Zarbag


Zarbag the shaman has wandered the twisted halls of the Nightvault for as long as he can remember. His sniffer spite helps him root out the best magic fungi, and he can transform his facial features into a warped vision of horror almost at will.

Notes: Unique. Zarbag and Zarbag’s Gitz must be taken as a set for a total of 160 points. Although taken as a set, each is a separate unit.


Zarbag is a named character that is a single model. He is armed with a Cursed Sickle.


Sniffer Spite: Zarbag has captured and imprisoned a sniffer spite, which he has ‘persuaded’ to track down potent magic fungi.
Once per battle, before you attempt to cast a spell with this model, you can roll a dice. On a 2+ add 2 to the casting roll.


This model is a WIZARD. It can attempt to cast one spell in your hero phase, and attempt to unbind one spell in the enemy hero phase. It knows the Arcane Bolt, Mystic Shield and Face Of Da Bad Moon spells.

Face of Da Bad Moon: To Zarbag, ‘mooning the enemy’ has a very different – and terrifying – meaning…
Face of Da Bad Moon has a casting value of 5. If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy unit within 3" of the caster that is visible to them. That unit must make a normal move, and must retreat. If it is impossible for the unit to make the move for any reason, it suffers D6 mortal wounds instead.

Named Characters
Named characters such as Nagash, Archaon and Alarielle are singular and mighty warriors, with their own personalities and artefacts of power. As such, these models cannot have a command trait or artefact of power.
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.
Arcane Bolt
Arcane Bolt has a casting value of 5. If successfully cast, pick an enemy unit within 18" of the caster that is visible to them. That unit suffers 1 mortal wound. If the casting roll was 10 or more, the unit suffers D3 mortal wounds instead.
Mystic Shield
Mystic Shield has a casting value of 6. If successfully cast, pick a friendly unit within 18" of the caster that is visible to them. Re-roll save rolls of 1 for that unit until your next hero phase.
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.
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.
