Saurus Guard

Patient and obstinate, Saurus Guard will not allow any harm to befall the Starmasters while even one of their number draws breath. Each will fight to the very last to defend their master, their polearms mercilessly hacking down the enemy.

Notes: Battleline in Seraphon army


A unit of Saurus Guard has any number of models, each armed with a Celestite Polearm and Powerful Jaws.

SAURUS GUARD ALPHA: 1 model in this unit can be a Saurus Guard Alpha. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that model’s Celestite Polearm.

STARDRAKE ICON BEARER: 1 in every 5 models in this unit can be a Stardrake Icon Bearer. Subtract 1 from the Bravery characteristic of enemy units while they are within 6" of any friendly Stardrake Icon Bearers.

WARDRUMMER: 1 in every 5 models in this unit can be a Wardrummer. You can re-roll charge rolls for units that include any Wardrummers.


Selfless Protectors: The Saurus Guard stand as a living shield between the slann and their foes.
Roll a dice before you allocate a wound or mortal wound to a friendly SLANN while it is within 3" of any friendly units with this ability. On a 2+, you must allocate that wound or mortal wound to a friendly unit with this ability that is within 3" of that SLANN, instead of to that SLANN.

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.
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.
