Ogor Mawtribes – Tyrant


The ferocious war-leaders of the Gutbuster warglutts, Tyrants are living mountains of iron and blubbery flesh. Despite their girth, they move with surprising speed, hacking their prey into bloody chunks for easier consumption.

A Tyrant is a single model armed with a Thundermace, Beastskewer Glaive, Gulping Bite and Ogor Pistols.


Beastskewer Glaive: A Tyrant uses their beastskewer glaive to disembowel their foes.
If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with a Beastskewer Glaive that targets a HERO or MONSTER is 6, the Beastskewer Glaive has a Damage characteristic of D6 instead of D3 for that attack.

Big Name: A Gutbuster Tyrant usually adopts a big name based upon their most renowned traits.
When you select this unit to be part of your army, you can choose or roll one of the following big names to apply to this model. Record this information on a piece of paper.

D6Big Name
1Deathcheater: An ogor that has escaped certain doom is seen as being blessed by Gorkamorka.
This model has a Wounds characteristic of 9 instead of 8. 
2Brawlerguts: Combining brutish strength with devastating bulk, this ogor enters combat like an avalanche.
You can add 1 to wound rolls for attacks made by this model if it made a charge move in the same turn. 
3Fateseeker: This Tyrant has travelled far and wide across the Mortal Realms and survived to tell the tale.
This model has a Save characteristic of 3+ instead of 4+. 
4Longstrider: An ogor with the big name Longstrider is capable of running down a sprinting rhinox.
This model has a Move characteristic of 8" instead of 6". 
5Giantbreaker: A Giantbreaker is adept at slaying especially large and notorious creatures.
Add 1 to the damage inflicted by this model’s weapons when they are used for an attack that targets a MONSTER. 
6Wallcrusher: Some ogors are so strong that they can bludgeon their way through a castle wall.
You can re-roll 1 wound roll for 1 attack made with 1 melee weapon each time this model attacks. In addition, you can re-roll wound rolls for attacks made with melee weapons by this model that target a unit that is part of a garrison

Thundermace: When brought down in an overhead smash, the resulting shock wave explodes outwards from the point of impact.
If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with a Thundermace is 6, that attack inflicts 1 mortal wound in addition to any normal damage. If the target unit has more than 3 models, on an unmodified 6, that attack inflicts D3 mortal wounds instead of 1.


Bully of the First Degree: Tyrants use abrupt violence to help them maintain an iron rule over their warglutt.
You can use this command ability in your hero phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly GUTBUSTERS unit within 3" of a friendly model with this command ability. That unit suffers D3 mortal wounds, but you do not have to take battleshock tests for that unit for the rest of the battle.

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.
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.
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.
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.

Battleshock test, battleshock roll
In the battleshock phase, both players must take battleshock tests for units from their army that have had models slain during the turn. The player whose turn it is tests first.

You must make a battleshock roll for each unit that has to take a battleshock test. To make a battleshock roll, roll a dice. Add the number of models from the unit that have been slain this turn to the dice roll, and add 1 to the unit’s Bravery characteristic for every 10 models that are in the unit when the test is taken.

If the modified battleshock roll is greater than the unit’s modified Bravery characteristic, the battleshock test has been failed. If the test is failed, for each point by which the modified roll exceeds the unit’s modified Bravery characteristic, one model in that unit must flee. You decide which of the models from your units flee – remove them from play and count them as having been slain.
