Tzaangors

Tzaangors are savage, avian beastmen dedicated to Tzeentch who fall upon their foes in a flurried rush of blades and vicious stabs. Eager to impress their duplicitous god, the Tzaangors fight with lunatic energies, hoping to earn further gifts of change.

DESCRIPTION

A unit of Tzaangors has any number of models, each armed with a vicious beak. In addition, each model in the unit is armed with one of the following weapon options: pair of Savage Blades; or Savage Blade and Arcanite Shield. 2 in every 5 models can replace their weapon option with a Savage Greatblade.

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 a Tzaangor Mutant’s pair of Savage Blades.

TWISTBRAY: The leader of this unit is a Twistbray. Add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made with a Twistbray’s melee weapons.

ICON BEARERS: 1 in every 10 models in this unit can be an Icon Bearer. While this unit has any Icon Bearers, it 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 upon the enemy.
Add 1 to wound rolls for attacks made by this unit with melee weapons 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 friendly TZAANGORS unit that has any models armed with Arcanite Shields. On a 6+ that wound or mortal wound is negated.

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 deliver a flurry of attacks upon their foes.
Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of this unit’s melee weapons if it has at least 9 models when the attacks are being made.

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 one or more Icon Bearers, at the start of your hero phase you can pick an enemy unit within 18" of this unit and visible to it. Then, roll a number of dice equal to the number of WIZARD units that are within 9" of this unit. For each 4+ that enemy unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

KEYWORDS

8.3 Run
When you pick a unit to run, you must make a run roll for the unit by rolling a dice. Add the run roll to the Move characteristic of all models in the unit until the end of that phase. You can then move each model in that unit a distance in inches equal to or less than their modified Move characteristic. No part of a run can be within 3" of an enemy unit. You cannot shoot or attempt a charge later in the turn with a unit that has run.
Hit Roll
Roll a dice. If the roll equals or beats the attacking weapon’s To Hit characteristic, the attack scores a hit and you must make a wound roll. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified hit roll of 1 always fails and an unmodified hit roll of 6 always hits. A hit roll cannot be modified by more than +1 or -1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).

Sometimes an ability will allow a single hit roll to score two or more hits. If this is the case, make all of the wound and save rolls for those hits at the same time.
13.1.2 Combat Attacks
When a friendly unit fights, you must make combat attacks with all of the melee weapons the models in the unit are armed with that they are allowed to use (including melee weapons used by the unit’s mounts, if there are any).

The target of a combat attack must be within a number of inches of the attacking model equal to the Range characteristic of the weapon being used to make the attack (the target does not have to be visible).

14.5 Mortal Wounds
Some attacks, spells and abilities cause 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 caused.

Mortal wounds caused while a unit is attacking are allocated at the same time as wounds caused by the unit’s attacks: after all of the unit’s attacks have been made. Mortal wounds caused at other times are allocated as soon as they are caused. Mortal wounds are allocated in the same way as wounds and are treated in the same manner as wounds for rules purposes.
Wound Roll
Roll a dice. If the roll equals or beats the attacking weapon’s To Wound characteristic, the attack wounds the target and your opponent must make a save roll. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified wound roll of 1 always fails and an unmodified wound roll of 6 always wounds. A wound roll cannot be modified by more than +1 or -1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).

14.1 Allocating Wounds
Wounds are allocated to the models in a unit 1 wound at a time. You can allocate the wounds caused to your units as you see fit. However, once you have allocated a wound to a model, you cannot allocate wounds to other models in the unit until that model is slain (see 14.2). If a unit is destroyed, all wounds that remain to be allocated to the unit are negated and have no effect.
