Protectors

The stormstrike glaives of the Protectors weave in intricate patterns as they advance, creating a shield of celestial energy. When they reach the enemy’s lines, their blades are turned to a deadlier purpose, dismembering their foes in a flash of sigmarite.

Battlefield Role: None

DESCRIPTION

A unit of Protectors has any number of models, each armed with a Stormstrike Glaive. 2 in every 5 models can replace their Stormstrike Glaive with a Starsoul Mace.

PROTECTOR-PRIME : The leader of this unit is a Protector-Prime. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of a Protector-Prime’s Stormstrike Glaive.

ABILITIES

Deathstrike: A stormstrike glaive can slay monstrous foes with a single blow.
If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with a Stormstrike Glaive that targets a MONSTER is 6, that attack has a Damage characteristic of D6 instead of 1.

Starsoul Mace: A starsoul mace blasts a being’s soul out of synchronicity with their mortal form, slaying them as surely as any death blow.
Do not use the attack sequence for an attack made with a Starsoul Mace. Instead, roll a dice. On a 1, nothing happens. On a 2-5, the target unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. On a 6+, the target unit suffers D3+1 mortal wounds.

Storm-shield: Arrows are deflected by the Protectors’ weaving glaives.
Subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks made with missile weapons that target this unit. In addition, if another friendly unit wholly within 6" of this unit is targeted by an enemy model’s missile weapon, that friendly unit receives the benefit of cover if the attacking model is closer to this unit than it is to the target unit.

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.
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.
Missile Weapons
In order to attack with a missile weapon, the model using the weapon must be in range of the target unit (i.e. within the maximum distance, in inches, of the Range listed for the weapon making the attack), and the target unit must be visible to the model with the weapon (if unsure, stoop down and look from behind the shooting model to see if a model from the target unit is visible). For the purposes of determining visibility, a model can see through other models in its unit.

Some missile weapons have a Range characteristic with a minimum range, for example 6"-48". Such weapons cannot attack units that are wholly within the shorter range.
Cover
Add 1 to save rolls for a unit if all of its models are wholly on or within a terrain feature when the rolls are made. This modifier does not apply in the combat phase if the unit you are making save rolls for made a charge move in the same turn, and never applies to units containing models with the MONSTER or WAR MACHINE keyword that have a Wounds characteristic of 8 or more.
