DESCRIPTION

Averon Stormsire is a named character that is a single model. He is armed with an Incantor’s Staff.

ABILITIES

Spirit Flask: Knights-Incantor can smash the filled spirit flasks they carry, causing a deadly explosion of soul energy.
Once per battle, at the start of the combat phase, you can say that this model will shatter 1, 2 or 3 spirit flasks. If you do so, each unit within 3" of this model suffers 1 mortal wound for each spirit flask that was shattered. Units within 3" with 10 or more models suffer D3 mortal wounds for each spirit flask that was shattered instead. Allocate the mortal wounds to this model last of all, after allocating them to any other units that are affected.

Voidstorm Scroll: Each Knight-Incantor bears a scroll infused with potent void magic.
Once per battle, when this model attempts to unbind a spell, instead of making an unbinding roll you can say this model is using its Voidstorm Scroll. If you do so, the spell is automatically unbound (do not roll the dice).

MAGIC

Averon Stormsire is a Wizard. He can attempt to cast one spell in your hero phase, and attempt to unbind one spell in the enemy hero phase. He knows the Arcane Bolt, Mystic Shield and Stormsire spells.

Stormsire: Averon can summon forth a storm of eldritch lightning of unmatchable ferocity.
Stormsire has a casting value of 7. If successfully cast, each enemy unit within 18" of the caster suffers 1 mortal wound. Enemy units within 6" of the caster suffer D3 mortal wounds instead. In addition, until your next hero phase, subtract 1 from run and charge rolls for enemy units while they are within 18" of the caster.

Named Characters
Named characters such as Nagash, Archaon and Alarielle are singular and mighty warriors, with their own personalities and artefacts of power. As such, these models cannot have a command trait or artefact of power.
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.
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.
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.
