Considered by the Seraphon to be living icons of the Old Ones, Dread Saurians are savage leviathans unleashed only as weapons of last resort. Their capacity for primal violence, not to mention their heart-stopping roar, has sent entire enemy armies into retreat.

Battlefield Role: Behemoth
A Dread Saurian is a single model armed with Gargantuan Jaws, Raking Claws and an Armoured Tail.

Each time this model is affected by a spell
or endless spell
, you can roll a dice. If you do so, on a 6+, ignore the effects of that spell or endless spell on this model. Add 2 to the roll if this model is within 12" of a friendly SLANN
Obliterating Charge: A Dread Saurian’s sheer scaled mass is a potent weapon in its own right.
After this model makes a charge move
, roll a dice for each enemy unit within 1" of this model. On a 2+, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds
if it is a MONSTER or D6 mortal wounds if it is not a MONSTER.
Death Throes: Even a mortally wounded Dread Saurian cannot be discounted, for it will lash out violently before meeting its end.
If this model is slain, before removing it from the battlefield, roll a dice for each enemy unit within 3" of it that is not a MONSTER. On a 4+, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds
Terror: This horrific monstrosity strikes fear deep into the hearts of its enemies.
Subtract 1 from the Bravery characteristic of enemy units if they are within 3" of any friendly units with this ability.
Roar of Ruin: The deafening roar of a Dread Saurian can drive even the most stout-hearted warriors into panicked flight.
Once per battle at the start of the battleshock phase
, you can say this model will use its Roar of Ruin. If you do so, halve the Bravery characteristic of enemy units (rounding up) that are within 12" of this model until the end of that phase.Designer’s Note: If a unit is affected by both the Roar of Ruin and Terror abilities, its Bravery characteristic is first halved (rounding up), and then 1 is subtracted from it.
