Fateskimmer, Herald of Tzeentch on Burning Chariot

Trailing flames and maniacal laughter, a Fateskimmer streaks across the skies. While the Herald conjures firestorms to engulf the foe, the living chariot it rides seeks to sear all those in its path, the Screamers at its fore biting their prey as they speed by.

DESCRIPTION

A Fateskimmer, Herald of Tzeentch on Burning Chariot, is a single model armed with Magical Flames, Staff of Change and Ritual Dagger.

MOUNT: This model’s Screamers of Tzeentch attack with their Lamprey Bites.

FLY: This model can fly.

ABILITIES

Arcane Tome: This arcane tome holds scriptures of ancient incantation that allows a brief mastery of the Herald’s chosen spell lores.
Once per battle, when this model attempts to cast or unbind a spell, you can roll 3D6, remove 1 dice of your choice, and then use the remaining 2D6 to determine the casting or unbinding roll.

Sky-sharks: Screamers that manage to sink their teeth into a larger creature will not let go easily, eventually tearing off huge chunks of bloodied flesh.
If the target is an enemy MONSTER, change the Damage characteristic of this model’s Lamprey Bite to D3.

Wake of Fire: Enemies unfortunate enough to be passed by a Burning Chariot are consumed by waves of unnatural fire.
After this model has made a normal move, you can pick 1 enemy unit that has any models passed across by this model and roll a dice. On a 2+, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

MAGIC

This model is a WIZARD. It can attempt to cast 1 spell in your hero phase and attempt to unbind 1 spell in the enemy hero phase. It knows the Arcane Bolt, Mystic Shield and Tzeentch’s Firestorm spells.

Tzeentch’s Firestorm: Searing balls of scarlet flame whip around the caster before spiralling outwards to engulf nearby enemies.
Tzeentch’s Firestorm has a casting value of 8. If successfully cast, roll a dice for each enemy unit within 9" of the caster and visible to them. On a 3+, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

KEYWORDS
CHAOS, DAEMON, HORROR, TZEENTCH, HERO, WIZARD, FATESKIMMER
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.
Normal Moves
Moves made in the movement phase are referred to as normal moves, to differentiate them from charge moves (made in the charge phase) and pile-in moves (made in the combat phase). A model making a normal move can move a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move characteristic shown on its warscroll.
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.
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.
