Plague Priest

Plague Priests shriek blasphemous prayers that unleash the dark diseases of the Great Corruptor upon their foes. Those not wasted away or withered into ooze are swiftly slain by blows from the priests’ warpstone-capped staves and smog-belching censers.

DESCRIPTION

A Plague Priest is a single model armed with a Warpstone-tipped Staff and a Plague Censer.

ABILITIES

Plague Prayers: Plague Priests can beseech the Horned Rat to unleash dread maladies on the foe.
In your hero phase, this model can chant one of the following prayers. If it does so, pick 1 of the prayers and then make a prayer roll by rolling a dice. On a 1, this model suffers 1 mortal wound and the prayer is not answered. On a 2, the prayer is not answered. On a 3+ the prayer is answered.

Disease-disease!: If this prayer is answered, pick 1 enemy unit within 13" of this model, and roll 1 dice for each model in that unit. For each 6, that unit suffers 1 mortal wound. This prayer has no effect on CLANS PESTILENS units.

Pestilence-pestilence!: If this prayer is answered, pick a point on the battlefield that is within 13" of this model. Roll a dice for each unit within 3" of that point. On 4+ that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. This prayer has no effect on CLANS PESTILENS units.

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

Poisonous Fumes: Plague censers emit huge clouds of noxious gas.
At the end of the combat phase, roll 1 dice for each unit within 3" of any units with this ability. On a 4+ the unit being rolled for suffers 1 mortal wound. On a 6 that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds instead of 1. This ability has no effect on CLANS PESTILENS units.

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.

Melee Weapons
In order to make an attack with a melee weapon, a model must be in range of the target unit.
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.
