DESCRIPTION

A Curseling, Eye of Tzeentch, is a single model armed with a Blazing Sword, Threshing Flail and Staff of Tzeentch.

ABILITIES

Disrupter of the Arcane: A Curseling can reach into a spell and undo the magical forces that keep it whole.
You can re-roll unbinding and dispelling rolls for this model.

Vessel of Chaos: The flow of eldritch energy is visible to the Curseling, who can pluck magic from the aether and hurl it back at its caster.
If this model successfully unbinds a spell that is possible for it to cast, it can immediately attempt to cast that spell even though it is the enemy hero phase. If that spell is successfully cast, it cannot be unbound.

MAGIC

This model is a WIZARD. It can attempt to cast 2 spells in your hero phase and attempt to unbind 2 spells in the enemy hero phase. It knows the Arcane Bolt, Mystic Shield and Glean Magic spells.

Glean Magic: In a magical duel, the Curseling reaches into his adversary’s mind and steals arcane knowledge to use for his own ends.
Glean Magic has a casting value of 3. If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy WIZARD within 24" of the caster and visible to them. Pick 1 spell from that WIZARD’s warscroll that is possible for this model to cast and roll a dice. On a 3+, the caster knows that spell for the rest of the battle.

KEYWORDS
CHAOS, MORTAL, TZEENTCH, ARCANITE, HERO, WIZARD, CURSELING
Unbinding and Dispelling
A WIZARD can attempt to unbind an endless spell when it is initially cast as normal. In addition, a WIZARD can attempt to dispel one endless spell at the start of each of their hero phases. If a wizard attempts to dispel an endless spell, they can attempt to cast one less spell than normal that phase.

In order to dispel an endless spell, first pick an endless spell model within 30" of the wizard and visible to them, and then roll 2D6. If the roll is greater than the casting value of the spell, the endless spell is dispelled. An endless spell model cannot be subjected to more than one dispel attempt per hero phase.

When an endless spell is dispelled its model is removed from play; the model can then be used again if the same endless spell is successfully cast later in the battle.
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.
