Rising from the ground, the Skull Altar is formed out of the violent tributes heaped in offering for Khorne’s Throne. From atop the grisly pedestal, a priest of Khorne roars out invectives, invoking the judgments of the Blood God to smite down all signs of weakness or wizardry.
PITCHED BATTLE PROFILE

Battlefield Role: Faction Terrain Feature
Base size: Use model
FACTION TERRAIN: Only Blades of Khorne 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.
DEFENSIBLE: This terrain feature is a defensible terrain feature that can be garrisoned by 1 HERO with a Wounds characteristic of 8 or less.
Words of Hate: As much a platform for violent oratory as bloody sacrifice, the exhortations of Khorne’s priests echo from this brass-clad edifice like the tolling of infernal bells.
You can re-roll chanting rolls for friendly KHORNE PRIESTS wholly within 8" of this terrain feature.
Witchbane: The Skull Altar devours arcane power like a whirlpool dragging ships to their doom.
While any terrain feature with this scenery rule is on the battlefield, if a spell is miscast, the caster suffers D6 mortal wounds instead of D3.
Invoke Judgement: While standing upon the Skull Altar, any herald of Khorne can bring the wrath of the Blood God upon their enemies.
While a KHORNE HERO garrisons this terrain feature, it can attempt to summon invocations in the same manner as a KHORNE PRIEST and benefits from the Words of Hate ability when it does so.
