Lunar Blade: The leaders of Vanguard-Pallador retinues are entrusted with deadly lunar blades with which they can unleash devastatingly swift attacks.
Each time a model armed with a Lunar Blade attacks, after all of that model’s attacks have been resolved, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 1" of that model and roll a dice. On a 2+ the unit you picked suffers 1 mortal wound
Ride the Winds Aetheric: Gryph-chargers can move faster than the eye can follow along the winds aetheric, though the shifting of these winds makes such movement perilous at times.
In your movement phase
, this unit can Ride the Winds Aetheric instead of moving normally
. If it does so, choose the direction in which it will move, and roll 6D6. This unit can move up to a number of inches equal to the result in the direction chosen, moving over terrain and other models as if it could fly
