Khinerai Lifetakers

Khinerai Lifetakers are swift-attack specialists, elite ambushers that swoop into battle to scythe down foes with their barbed sickles. They rake enemy formations in combat before flying out of the melee to seek other vulnerable prey.

FLY: This unit can fly.

CHAMPION: 1 model in this unit can be a Harridynn. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that model’s weapons.

Descend to Battle: The Khinerai delight in using their leathery wings to descend upon the foe from unexpected vectors.
Instead of setting up this unit on the battlefield, you can place it to one side and say that it is circling high above as a reserve unit. If you do so, at the end of your movement phase, you can set up this unit on the battlefield more than 9" from all enemy units.

Fight and Flight: The cults of the Khinerai are masters of the hit-and-run strike.
After this unit fights, you can roll a dice. On a 4+, this unit can retreat 6".

8.2 Retreat
When you pick a unit to retreat, you can move each model in that unit a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move characteristic shown on the unit’s warscroll. The unit must end the move more than 3" from all enemy units. You cannot shoot or attempt a charge later in the turn with a unit that has retreated.
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.

3.1 Reserve Units and Summoned Units
Sometimes a rule will allow you to set up a unit in a location other than the battlefield as a reserve unit. A unit that is added to your army once the battle is underway is called a summoned unit.

When you set up a reserve unit, either during deployment or once the battle is underway, you must tell your opponent that the unit is in reserve and keep it to one side instead of placing it on the battlefield. At the start of the fourth battle round, units that are still in reserve are destroyed. Units cannot cast spells or use abilities while they are in reserve unless the spell or ability specifically says it can be used by reserve units.

Reserve units are picked as part of your army before the battle begins, while summoned units are units added to your army once the battle is underway. Models that have been removed from play can be used as part of a summoned unit.
