Herdstones are the sites at which the Beasts of Chaos carry out their savage rituals. Wrought from the Chaos-infused substance of the realms, from them spills the corruptive taint of the anarchic wilds to bleed freely into the land.
PITCHED BATTLE PROFILE
Unit Size: - Points: 0
Battlefield Role: Faction Terrain Feature
Base size: Use model
FACTION TERRAIN: Only Beasts of Chaos armies can include this faction terrain feature.
SET-UP: After territories are determined, you can set up this faction terrain feature wholly within your territory and more than 3" from all objectives and other terrain features. If both players can set up faction terrain features at the same time, they must roll off and the winner chooses who sets up their faction terrain features first.
IMPASSABLE: You cannot move a model over this terrain feature unless it can fly, and you cannot move a model onto this terrain feature or set up a model on this terrain feature (even if it can fly).
Entropic Lodestone: As the corrupting influence of the herdstone spreads, buildings, armour and other trappings of civilisation and order begin to crumble to dust, allowing even the crude weapons of the Beasts of Chaos to cut through their defences with ease.
