Plague Monks

Driven into battle by their frenzied faith, Plague Monks overwhelm their enemies in a pestilential mass. They hack and stab wildly with their foetid blades, spreading disease and infection with every blow.

DESCRIPTION

A unit of Plague Monks has any number of models. The unit is armed with one of the following weapon options: Pair of Foetid Blades; or Foetid Blade and Woe-stave.

BRINGER-OF-THE-WORD: 1 model in this unit can be a Bringer-of-the-Word. That model carries a Book of Woes.

STANDARD BEARERS: 1 in every 10 models in this unit can be a Standard Bearer. While this unit includes any Standard Bearers, each time a model from this unit is slain by an attack made with a melee weapon, before the model is removed from play, roll a dice. On a 6, pick 1 enemy unit within 3" of the slain model. That unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

PLAGUE HARBINGERS: 1 in every 10 models in this unit can be a Plague Harbinger. Add 1 to run and charge rolls for this unit while it includes any Plague Harbingers.

ABILITIES

Book of Woes: The champions of the Plague Monks lead their followers in recitations from foul Books of Woes, endlessly repeating the Liturgus Infectus and Rite of Infection, calling upon the Horned Rat to strike down the enemy with disease.
In your hero phase, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 13" of this unit’s Bringer-of-the-Word and roll a dice. On a 1-3, nothing happens. On a 4-5, that unit suffers 1 mortal wound. On a 6, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. This ability has no effect on NURGLE units.

Foetid Weapons: The weapons that are wielded by Plague Monks are foul-smelling and tainted; even the slightest cut can infect the victim with any number of debilitating diseases.
If the unmodified wound roll for an attack made with a melee weapon by this unit is 6, that attack succeeds twice instead of once. Make a save roll for each success.

Frenzied Assault: The presence of the enemy drives these crazed warriors into a terrible rage.
Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of this unit’s melee weapons if this unit made a charge move in the same turn.

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.
Running
When you pick a unit to make a normal move, you can declare that it will run. Make a run roll for the unit by rolling a dice. Add the result of the run roll to the Move characteristic of all models in the unit for that movement phase. The unit can then move up to that distance in inches. Models in a unit that runs can’t shoot or charge later in the same turn.
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.
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.
