Kairic Acolytes are the chosen human cultists of Tzeentch. Harnessing their collective magical might, the Chanters of Change unleash it in the form of searing bolts. Enemies that do not fall before this arcane fusillade must face their curved blades.
Unit Size: 10 - 30 Points: 100
Battlefield Role: Battleline
A unit of Kairic Acolytes has any number of models. The unit is armed with Sorcerous Bolts and one of the following weapon options: Cursed Blade and Arcanite Shield; or a pair of Cursed Blades.
3 in every 10 models in this unit can replace their weapon option with a Cursed Glaive and Arcanite Shield.
1 model in this unit can be a Kairic Adept. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that model’s melee weapons
SCROLL OF DARK ARTS:
1 in every 10 models in this unit can carry a Scroll of Dark Arts. A unit that includes any Scrolls of Dark Arts can add 1 to casting and unbinding rolls
1 in every 10 models in this unit can be accompanied by a Vulcharc. If an enemy WIZARD
a spell within 18" of a friendly unit that includes any Vulcharcs, roll a dice. On a 4+, that WIZARD suffers 1 mortal wound
after the effects of that spell have been resolved.
Arcanite Shields: This lavishly wrought shield can protect against both physical and magical attacks.
Roll a dice each time you allocate a wound
or mortal wound
to a unit that has any models armed with Arcanite Shields. On a 6, that wound or mortal wound is negated. When you allocate wounds or mortal wounds to this unit, you must allocate them to a model armed with an Arcanite Shield if it is possible to do so.
Paired Cursed Blades: Those who wield twin cursed blades can strong-arm enemy weapons aside for a cleaner strike.
You can re-roll hit rolls
for attacks made with a pair of Cursed Blades.

Gestalt Sorcery has a casting value
of 6. If successfully cast, pick 1 friendly KAIRIC ACOLYTES
unit wholly within 9" of the caster. Until your next hero phase
