The Nightmare Predator is a looming conjuration of Shyishan magic that takes the form of a disturbing terror. Bonded to its caster, it floats eerily through the air towards its master’s chosen prey, lacerating the flesh of its screaming victims with claws the size of sickles before stripping them to the bone.
A Nightmare Predator is a single model.
PREDATORY: A Nightmare Predator is a predatory endless spell. It can move up to 2D6" and can fly.
Soul-linked: A soul-linked spell is directly connected to the consciousness of its caster.
Summon Nightmare Predator: The caster manifests a terrifying nightmare to punish their foes.
Summon Nightmare Predator has a casting value of 7. Only OSSIARCH BONEREAPERS WIZARDS can attempt to cast this spell. If successfully cast, set up a Nightmare Predator model wholly within 6" of the caster and visible to them.
This spell is soul-linked to the caster. When predatory endless spells are moved at the start of the battle round, any that are soul-linked to a caster are moved first, followed by any endless spells that are not. Soul-linked spells are always moved by the player whose army includes the caster the spell is soul-linked to. The player that won the roll-off to determine who moves an endless spell first must move all their soul-linked spells first, followed by their opponent.
You must subtract 1 from casting rolls for a WIZARD that is soul-linked to an endless spell. A caster cannot be soul-linked to more than one endless spell at the same time. If the caster is slain, then any endless spell they are soul-linked to is dispelled.
Perpetual Hunter: The only way to stop a Nightmare Predator is to slay its caster before it kills you.
When this model is set up, the player who set it up can pick 1 enemy HERO as its prey and then immediately make a move with this model. If this model’s prey is destroyed, this model is dispelled.
Death Incarnate: A Nightmare Predator is certain doom to any who get in its way.
After this model moves, roll a dice for each unit within 3" of it. On a 2+, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. If that unit was this model’s prey, on a 2+ it suffers D6 mortal wounds instead of D3 mortal wounds. OSSIARCH BONEREAPERS units are not affected by this ability.
