DESCRIPTION

A Chaos Sorcerer Lord on Manticore is a single model armed with a Sorcerous Reaping Staff.

FLY: This model can fly.

MOUNT: This model’s Manticore attacks with its Honed Fangs and Claws and Shredding Tail.

MARK OF CHAOS: When you select this model to be part of your army, you must give it one of the following Mark of Chaos keywords: TZEENTCH, NURGLE, SLAANESH or UNDIVIDED.

ABILITIES

Oracular Visions: A sorcerer can temporarily bestow the gift of foresight upon their allies, helping them ward against oncoming enemy blows.
In your hero phase, you can pick 1 friendly MORTAL SLAVES TO DARKNESS unit wholly within 12" of this model. If you do so, you can re-roll save rolls for attacks that target that unit until your next hero phase.

Territorial Predator: Any who stray into the territory of a Manticore are as good as dead, especially larger creatures that can be seen as a potential rival.
You can re-roll hit rolls for attacks made with this model’s Honed Fangs and Claws if the target is a MONSTER.

MAGIC

This model is a WIZARD. It can attempt to cast 1 spell in your hero phase and attempt to unbind 1 spell in the enemy hero phase. It knows the Arcane Bolt, Mystic Shield and Wind of Chaos spells.

Wind of Chaos: The sorcerer summons the raw power of Chaos and sends a vortex of fell energies screaming across the battlefield.
Winds of Chaos has a casting value of 7. If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy unit within 18" of the caster and visible to them. Roll a number of dice equal to the number of models in that unit. For each 5, that unit suffers 1 mortal wound. For each 6, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

KEYWORDS
CHAOS, MORTAL, MANTICORE, SLAVES TO DARKNESS, MARK OF CHAOS, EYE OF THE GODS, MONSTER, HERO, WIZARD, CHAOS SORCERER LORD
Flying
If the warscroll for a model says that the model can fly, it can pass across models and terrain features as if they were not there when it makes any type of move. Any vertical distance up and/or down is ignored when measuring a flying model’s move. It cannot finish the move on top of another model.
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.
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.
Arcane Bolt
Arcane Bolt has a casting value of 5. If successfully cast, pick an enemy unit within 18" of the caster that is visible to them. That unit suffers 1 mortal wound. If the casting roll was 10 or more, the unit suffers D3 mortal wounds instead.
Mystic Shield
Mystic Shield has a casting value of 6. If successfully cast, pick a friendly unit within 18" of the caster that is visible to them. Re-roll save rolls of 1 for that unit until your next hero phase.
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.
