Stegadon with Skink Chief

A charging Stegadon is nothing less than a living battering ram. Its skink riders wield all manner of deadly weapons, while the crushing bulk and sharpened horns of the Stegadon can smash aside even the most determined defenders.

DESCRIPTION

A Stegadon with Skink Chief is a single model armed with Massive Horns, Grinding Jaws and Crushing Stomps.

CREW: This model has a skink crew that attack with Meteoric Javelins and one of the following weapon options: Skystreak Bow; or Sunfire Throwers. For rules purposes, the crew are treated in the same manner as a mount.

MOUNT: The Stegadon treated as Skink Chief’s mount.

SKINK CHIEF: This model includes 1 Skink Chief armed with a Meteoric Warspear. Any command traits or artefacts of power this model has only affect attacks made by the Skink Chief.

ABILITIES

Armoured Crest: A Stegadon will turn to face a foe head-on if it can, so that its thickly scaled crest can protect it from harm.
At the start of the combat phase, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 3" of this model and that has up to 5 models. If you do so, until the end of that phase, add 1 to save rolls for attacks made by that unit that target this model.

Gout of Sunfire: Sunfire throwers unleash great roiling clouds of cosmic flame.
Do not use the attack sequence for an attack made with Sunfire Throwers. Instead, roll a number of dice equal to the number of models from the target unit within 8" of the attacking model. For each 5+, the target unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

Steadfast Majesty: Stegadons are almost fearless beasts, and their stubborn refusal to back down when faced by even the most fearsome foes inspires great courage in nearby skinks.
You can re-roll battleshock tests for friendly SKINK units while they are wholly within 18" of any friendly STEGADON units.

Unstoppable Stampede: Stegadons are nigh unstoppable as they crash through the midst of battle.
Roll 1 dice for each enemy unit that is within 1" of this model when this model finishes a charge move. On a 3+, that enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

COMMAND ABILITIES

Coordinated Strike: A Skink Chief mounted on a Stegadon is in the perfect position to direct the efforts of those skink warriors and warbeast handlers that are nearby, amplifying their destructive power.
You can this command ability at the start of the combat phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly SKINK unit wholly within 24" of a friendly STEGADON HERO with this command ability. Until the end of that phase, add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of melee weapons used by that SKINK unit. A unit cannot benefit from this command ability more than once per phase.

KEYWORDS
ORDER, SERAPHON, SKINK, HERO, MONSTER, STEGADON
Mounts
Sometimes the description for a model will include information about the model having a mount, such as a battle steed, a powerful monster that they can ride, or a massive war machine that they can stand upon. Note that when the model is slain both the rider and their mount are removed.
Command Traits
Whether cunning strategist or berserk butcher, every general has a unique style of command. If your general is a HERO and the allegiance abilities for your army include any command traits, you can choose or roll for one for your general. If, for any reason, you must select a new general during a battle, immediately choose or roll for a trait for them. Command traits have no effect on attacks made by a general’s mount unless noted otherwise.
Artefacts of Power
These treasures are borne to war by mighty heroes. If the allegiance abilities for your army include any artefacts of power, you can choose or roll for one to be carried by a HERO from your army. You may choose one additional HERO to have an artefact for each warscroll battalion you include in your army. A HERO cannot have more than one artefact of power, and an army may not include duplicates of the same artefact of power. Artefacts of power have no effect on attacks made by a hero’s mount unless noted otherwise.
Modifiers
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
