Black Ark Corsairs

Cruel-hearted and avaricious, Black Ark Corsairs are the footsoldiers of the Scourge Privateers. Wielding a variety of lethal weapons, they thrive in the chaos of a swirling melee, where their superior swordsmanship can be put to deadly use.

A unit of Black Ark Corsairs has any number of models. The unit is armed with a Vicious Blade and one of the following weapon options: Repeater Handbow; or Wicked Cutlass.

REAVER: 1 model in this unit can be a Reaver. Add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by this model.

STANDARD BEARER: 1 in every 10 models in this unit can be a Standard Bearer. Add 1 to the Bravery characteristic of units that include any Standard Bearers.

HORNBLOWER: 1 in every 10 models in this unit can be a Hornblower. Add 1 to run and charge rolls for units that include any Hornblowers.


Flashing Steel: These warriors overwhelm the enemy in a blur of slashing blades.
Add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by this unit if it has 15 or more models.

Sea Dragon Cloak: These cloaks of scaly hide protect the bearer from arrows and other projectiles.
Add 1 to save rolls for attacks made with missile weapons that target this unit.

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.
13.1.1 Shooting Attacks
When a friendly unit shoots, you can make shooting attacks with any of the missile weapons the models in the unit are armed with that they are allowed to use (including missile weapons used by mounts).

The target of a shooting 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 range must be measured to the closest visible model in the target unit (if you are unsure whether a model is visible, stoop down and take a look from behind the shooting model). Models can see through other models in their unit.

Some missile weapons have a Range characteristic with a minimum range (e.g. 6"-48"). Units wholly within the minimum range cannot be targeted with these weapons.

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.
11.1 Charge Moves
When you attempt a charge with a unit, make a charge roll for the unit by rolling 2D6. You can then make a charge move with each model in that unit by moving the model a distance in inches that is equal to or less than the charge roll. The first model you move in a unit attempting a charge must finish the move within 1/2" of an enemy unit. If this is impossible, no models in the unit can make a charge move.

You do not have to pick a target for a charge attempt before making the charge roll.
Save Roll
Your opponent rolls a dice, modifying the roll by the attacking weapon’s Rend characteristic. If the roll equals or beats the target unit’s Save characteristic, the target is saved and the attack sequence ends. If not, the attack is successful and you must determine the damage that is inflicted on the target. An unmodified save roll of 1 always fails. A save roll cannot be modified by more than +1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).

Designer’s Note: Save rolls do not always succeed on an unmodified roll of 6, and they can be modified by more than -1.
