Changecaster, Herald of Tzeentch

Wielding the pink changefire of its patron, a Herald of Tzeentch is a luminescent servant of the Changer of the Ways. Any that attempt to thwart its anarchic cause will soon feel the wrath of living flames or the mutating blows of its Staff of Change.

DESCRIPTION

A Changecaster, Herald of Tzeentch, is a single model armed with Magical Flames and one of the following weapon options: Staff of Change and Arcane Tome; or Ritual Dagger and Arcane Tome.

ABILITIES

Fortune and Fate: The sacred number nine blesses any follower practising the arcane.
If this model successfully casts a spell with a casting roll of 9+, this model can attempt to cast 1 extra spell in that phase.

Arcane Tome: This arcane tome holds scriptures of ancient incantation that allows a brief mastery of the Herald’s chosen spell lores.
Once per battle, when this model attempts to cast or unbind a spell, you can roll 3D6, remove 1 dice of your choice, and then use the remaining 2D6 to determine the casting or unbinding roll.

MAGIC

This model is a WIZARD. It can attempt to cast 1 spell in your hero phase and attempt to unbind 1 spell in the enemy hero phase. It knows the Arcane Bolt, Mystic Shield and Pink Fire of Tzeentch spells.

Pink Fire of Tzeentch: The Changecaster conjures a tide of writhing warpflame that engulfs the foe.
Pink Fire of Tzeentch has a casting value of 9. If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy unit within 18" of the caster and visible to them. That unit suffers D6 mortal wounds.

KEYWORDS

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.
19.1 Casting Spells
In your hero phase, you can attempt to cast spells with friendly WIZARDS. You cannot attempt to cast the same spell more than once in the same hero phase, even with a different WIZARD. In order to attempt to cast a spell, pick a friendly WIZARD, say which of the spells that they know will be attempted, and then make a casting roll by rolling 2D6. If the casting roll is equal to or greater than the casting value of the spell, the spell is successfully cast.
19.1.2 Unbinding Spells
If a spell is successfully cast, your opponent can pick 1 of their WIZARDS that is within 30" of the caster to attempt to unbind the spell before its effects are applied. In order to attempt to unbind a spell, first say which WIZARD will attempt to unbind it. Then make an unbinding roll by rolling 2D6. If the unbinding roll is greater than the roll used to cast the spell, then the spell is unbound and its effects are not applied. The number of spells a WIZARD can attempt to unbind is noted on their warscroll. Only 1 unbinding attempt can be made for each spell.
Arcane Bolt
The caster calls forth a ball of crackling arcane energy that hovers above their outstretched hand, ready to be hurled at a foe.
Arcane Bolt is a spell that has a casting value of 5 and a range of 12". If successfully cast, at the start of any 1 phase before your next hero phase, you can pick 1 enemy unit within range and visible to the caster. That unit suffers 1 mortal wound. If that unit is within 3" of the caster, it suffers D3 mortal wounds instead of 1.
Mystic Shield
The caster conjures up a shield of shimmering energy to protect themselves or an ally from harm.
Mystic Shield is a spell that has a casting value of 5 and a range of 12". If successfully cast, pick 1 friendly unit wholly within range and visible to the caster. Add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target that unit until your next hero phase.
