Beasts of Chaos – Herdstone
This warscroll does not meet the selection criteria (see Settings tab).
FACTION TERRAIN WARSCROLL

Herdstone

Wrought from the Chaosinfused substance of the realms, Herdstones are the sites at which the Beasts of Chaos carry out their savage rituals. As the Greatfrays stampede further into civilised territories, they continue to erect Herdstones, from which the corruptive taint of the anarchic wilds bleeds freely into the land.

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.
Improve the Rend characteristic of melee weapons used by all friendly BEASTS OF CHAOS units on the battlefield by 1. From the start of the third battle round, improve the Rend characteristic of melee weapons used by all friendly BEASTS OF CHAOS units on the battlefield by 2 instead of 1.

Locus of Savagery: A Herdstone marks the domain of the Beasts of Chaos, and in its presence they fight with unfailing vigour.
After this terrain feature is set up, its range is 12". At the start of each battle round after the first, its range is increased by 6".

If a friendly BEASTS OF CHAOS unit wholly within range of this terrain feature fails a battleshock test, halve the number of models that flee from that unit (rounding down). In addition, if a friendly BEASTS OF CHAOS unit wholly within range of this terrain feature receives the Rally command, you can return 1 slain model to that unit for each 4+ instead of each 6.

The BEASTS OF CHAOS keyword is used in the following Beasts of Chaos warscrolls:

1.5.3 Rolling Off
Sometimes a rule may require the players to roll off. To roll off, each player rolls a dice, and whoever rolls highest wins. If a roll-off is tied, roll off again. You cannot re-roll or modify the dice when you roll off.
9.4 Flying
If the warscroll used by a model says that it can fly, you can ignore other models and terrain features when you trace the path of its move across the battlefield (it flies over them). In addition, when a model that can fly starts or finishes a move on a terrain feature, instead of tracing its move across the battlefield, you can trace it ‘through the air’, as shown in the diagram below.

A flying model cannot finish a move on top of another model or finish a normal move, run or retreat within 3" of an enemy unit.
