Bound Prismatic Palisade

The crystalline spars of the Prismatic Palisade are formed of pure light, hardened into a barrier that bathes those on the battlefield in the blinding rays of Hysh.

Unit Size: 1      Points: 40
Battlefield Role: Endless Spell


A Bound Prismatic Palisade is a single model.


Summon Bound Prismatic Palisade: Those enlightened wizards who possess the required insight and purity of mind can draw forth an unbreakable wall of pure Hyshian crystal from the ground, blinding all who gaze upon it.
Summon Bound Prismatic Palisade has a casting value of 5. Only SERAPHON WIZARDS can attempt to cast this spell. If successfully cast, set up a Bound Prismatic Palisade model wholly within 18" of the caster.


Blinding Light: The radiant beams projected from this barrier confound the aim of all within sight of it.
At the start of each turn, roll a dice for each unit within 6" of this model. On a 5+, until the end of the turn, subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks made by that unit.

Dazzling Brilliance: Knowing the impossibility of looking directly upon the Prismatic Palisade, a canny commander will position their forces in such a way as to shield them from the eyes of the enemy.
A model cannot see another model if an imaginary straight line, 1mm wide, drawn from the centre of its base to the centre of the other model’s base passes over this model.

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.

The SERAPHON and WIZARD keywords are used in following Seraphon warscrolls:

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.
