Drakesworn Templar

Drakesworn Templars are the Heavens’ might made manifest. They ride Stardrakes that can roar forth lightning-charged clouds, summon starfire from the skies, or slay the enemy with sharp claws, piercing fangs and a tail that strikes like a thunderbolt.

DESCRIPTION

A Drakesworn Templar is a single model armed with either a Tempest Axe, an Arc Hammer or a Stormlance. It can also be armed with a Skybolt Bow.

MOUNT: This model’s Stardrake attacks with its Great Claws.

FLY: This model can fly.

ABILITIES

Arcane Lineage: Stardrakes are the children of Dracothion, and they possess innate power over the magic of the realms.
Add 1 to casting rolls for friendly WIZARDS while they are within 18" of this model. In addition, subtract 1 from casting rolls for enemy WIZARDS while they are within 18" of this model.

Arc Hammer: The static hum of an arc hammer rises to an almighty concussive crescendo as it strikes.
If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with an Arc Hammer is 6, that attack inflicts 2 hits on the target instead of 1. Make a wound and save roll for each hit.

Cavernous Jaws: The enormous maw of a Stardrake can bite a foe in half.
After this model makes a pile-in move, this model’s Stardrake can bite one or more enemy models with its cavernous jaws. The number of bites it can make is shown on the damage table above. For each bite, pick one enemy model within 3" of this model and roll a dice. If the roll is greater than that model’s Wounds characteristic, it is slain.

Lord of the Heavens: Stardrakes are imbued with pure Azyrite energy and the powers of the celestial realm are theirs to command.
At the start of your shooting phase, if this model is on the battlefield, it can either breathe a Roiling Thunderhead or call down a Rain of Stars.

If it breathes a Roiling Thunderhead, pick 1 enemy unit within 18" of this model that is visible to it. Roll a dice for each model in that unit that is within 18" of this model. For each 6+ that unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

If it calls down a Rain of Stars, pick up to D6 enemy units on the battlefield. Roll a dice for each unit you pick. On a 4+ that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

Skybolt Bow: Drakesworn Templars often direct attacks with well-placed skybolts.
If you score one or more hits on an enemy unit with this model’s Skybolt Bow, add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by friendly DRACOTHIAN GUARD units that target that enemy unit until the end of that turn.

Stormlance: A well-placed blow from a stormlance channels the power of Sigmar into the unfortunate victim.
If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with a Stormlance that targets a MONSTER is 6, that attack inflicts D6 mortal wounds on the target and the attack sequence ends (do not make a wound or save roll).

Sweeping Tail: Those who seek to avoid the jaws of a Stardrake are often smashed aside by its mighty tail.
Each time this model attacks, roll a dice for each enemy unit within 3" of this model after all of this model’s attacks have been resolved. If the roll is less than the number of models in that enemy unit, that enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

Tempest Axe: The hurricane force emanating from a tempest axe is enough to slow the foe’s attack.
Subtract 2" from the distance enemy units can pile in when they start that pile-in move within 3" of this model.

KEYWORDS
ORDER, CELESTIAL, HUMAN, STARDRAKE, STORMCAST ETERNAL, MONSTER, HERO, DRAKESWORN TEMPLAR
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.
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.
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.
Piling In
A unit can make a pile-in move if it is within 3" of an enemy unit or has made a charge move in the same turn. If this is the case, you can move each model in the unit up to 3". Each model must finish its pile-in move at least as close to the nearest enemy model as it was at the start of the move.
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.
