Exalted Greater Daemon of Nurgle

Riddled with pestilence and disease, an Exalted Greater Daemon of Nurgle is a foul manifestation of Nurgle’s will. With each lumbering step and burbled word it spreads more of its diseased blessings to those who stand before it.

DESCRIPTION

An Exalted Greater Daemon of Nurgle is a single model armed with a Massive Bilesword and Noxious Bile.

ABILITIES

Blubber and Bile: The dubious reward for piercing the blubbery hide of an Exalted Greater Daemon of Nurgle is to be showered by acidic bile and putrid toxins.
Roll a dice each time you allocate a wound or mortal wound to this model. On a 5+, that wound or mortal wound is negated. In addition, on a 6, if the attacking unit is within 3" of this model, it suffers 1 mortal wound.

Corpulent Mass: An Exalted Greater Daemon of Nurgle is blessed with the Plaguefather’s gift of fecundity, enabling its body to swiftly regrow damaged flesh and tissue.
In your hero phase, you can heal up to D3 wounds allocated to this model.

Mountain of Loathsome Flesh: Such is the size and girth of an Exalted Greater Daemon of Nurgle that it can simply run over its foes, crushing or asphyxiating them beneath its monstrous bulk as it does so.
Roll 1 dice for each enemy unit that is within 1" of this model after this model completes a charge move. On a 4+, that enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

MAGIC

An Exalted Greater Daemon of Nurgle is a WIZARD. It can attempt to cast two spells in your hero phase, and attempt to unbind one spell in the enemy hero phase. It knows the Arcane Bolt, Mystic Shield and Plague Wind spells.

Plague Wind: The Exalted Greater Daemon of Nurgle summons a whirlwind of maggots and filth, basking in its feculence for a moment before sending it forth.
Plague Wind has a casting value of 7. If successfully cast, pick a point on the battlefield within 14" of the caster and draw an imaginary straight line 1mm wide between that point and the closest part of the caster. Each unit crossed by that line suffers D3 mortal wounds. If this line passes over any NURGLE units, heal up to D3 wounds allocated to that unit instead.

COMMAND ABILITIES

Grandfather’s Exalted Joy: At the Great Unclean One’s command, Nurgle’s children are inspired to fight with even greater exuberance.
You can use this command ability in your hero phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly NURGLE DAEMON unit wholly within 28" of a friendly model with this command ability. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that unit’s melee weapons until your next hero phase.

Allocating Wounds
Once all of a unit’s attacks have been resolved, add up the damage that was inflicted. The player commanding the target unit must then allocate a number of wounds to the target unit equal to the damage that was inflicted.

Wounds are allocated one at a time to models in the target unit. You can allocate the wounds inflicted on your units as you see fit (the models do not have to be within range or visible to the attacking unit). However, if you allocate a wound to a model, you must keep on allocating wounds to that model until it is slain – a unit can never have more than one wounded model.

Some abilities allow you to make a roll to negate a wound or mortal wound allocated to a model; in this case the roll is made for each individual wound or mortal wound as it is allocated to the model in question. If the wound or mortal wound is negated it has no effect on the 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.
Healing Wounds
Some abilities allow wounds that have been allocated to a model to be healed. For each wound that is healed, remove one of the wounds that have been allocated to the model. You can’t heal wounds on a model that has been slain.
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.
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.

Healing Wounds
Some abilities allow wounds that have been allocated to a model to be healed. For each wound that is healed, remove one of the wounds that have been allocated to the model. You can’t heal wounds on a model that has been slain.
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.
Melee Weapons
In order to make an attack with a melee weapon, a model must be in range of the target unit.
