DESCRIPTION

A unit of Tzaangors has any number of models. The unit is armed with a Vicious Beak and one of the following weapon options: Savage Blade and Arcanite Shield; or a pair of Savage Blades. 2 in every 5 models can replace their weapon option with a Savage Greatblade.

TWISTBRAY: 1 model in this unit can be a Twistbray. Add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made with that model’s melee weapons.

TZAANGOR MUTANT: 1 in every 5 models in this unit can be a Tzaangor Mutant armed with a pair of Savage Blades and a Vicious Beak. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that model’s pair of Savage Blades.

ICON BEARER: 1 in every 10 models in this unit can be an Icon Bearer. A unit that includes any Icon Bearers can use the Ornate Totems ability.

BRAYHORN: 1 in every 10 models in this unit can have a Brayhorn. A unit that includes any Brayhorns can run and still charge later in the same turn.

ABILITIES

Destined Mayhem: Nearby leaders and champions of the Arcanites inspire Tzaangors to deliver killing blows to the enemy.
Add 1 to wound rolls for attacks made with melee weapons by this unit while this unit is wholly within 12" of any friendly ARCANITE HEROES.

Arcanite Shield: 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 Savage Blades: Tzaangors armed with two savage blades have a better chance of landing a blow on the enemy.
Add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made with a pair of Savage Blades.

Savagery Unleashed: Favoured by their god, these warriors unleash a flurry of attacks upon their foes.
Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of this unit’s melee weapons while it has 9 or more models.

Ornate Totems: The icons carried by the Tzaangors can steal magical power from nearby wizards and use it to blast the enemy.
While this unit has 1 or more Icon Bearers, at the start of your hero phase, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 18" of this unit that is visible to it. Roll 1 dice for each WIZARD that is within 9" of this unit. For each 4+, that unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

KEYWORDS

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.
Melee Weapons
In order to make an attack with a melee weapon, a model must be in range of the target unit.
Running
When you pick a unit to make a normal move, you can declare that it will run. Make a run roll for the unit by rolling a dice. Add the result of the run roll to the Move characteristic of all models in the unit for that movement phase. The unit can then move up to that distance in inches. Models in a unit that runs can’t shoot or charge later in the same turn.
Charge roll, charge move
Any of your units within 12" of the enemy in your charge phase can attempt to make a charge move. Pick an eligible unit and make a charge roll for it by rolling 2D6. Each model in the unit can move a number of inches equal to the charge roll. You cannot make a charge move with a unit that has run or retreated earlier in the turn, or with a unit that is within 3" of an enemy unit.

The first model you move from a unit making a charge move must finish the move within ½" of an enemy model (you do not have to pick the target for the charge before making the charge roll). If that’s impossible, or you decide not to make the charge move, the charge fails and no models in the unit can move in this phase.

Once all models in one unit have made their charge moves, you can pick another eligible unit to make a charge attempt, until all units that you want to make charge attempts have done so.

Allocating Wounds
Once all of a unit’s attacks have been resolved, add up the damage that was inflicted. The player commanding the target unit must then allocate a number of wounds to the target unit equal to the damage that was inflicted.

Wounds are allocated one at a time to models in the target unit. You can allocate the wounds inflicted on your units as you see fit (the models do not have to be within range or visible to the attacking unit). However, if you allocate a wound to a model, you must keep on allocating wounds to that model until it is slain – a unit can never have more than one wounded model.

Some abilities allow you to make a roll to negate a wound or mortal wound allocated to a model; in this case the roll is made for each individual wound or mortal wound as it is allocated to the model in question. If the wound or mortal wound is negated it has no effect on the model.
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.
