Balewind Vortex

A Balewind Vortex is a terrifying sight to behold on the battlefield – a swirling, violently swaying cyclone of fell energies that can be summoned by a wizard and used as a platform from which to more effectively cast spells.

Battlefield Role: Endless Spell
Base size: Use model

SUMMONING: This endless spell is summoned with a spell that has a casting value of 5 and a range of 3". WIZARDS that are part of a garrison, or that have a Wounds characteristic of 8 or more, or that are Unique, or that are part of a unit that has 2 or more models, or that are already on top of an endless spell, cannot attempt to cast this spell. If successfully cast, set up the endless spell within range and visible to the caster, more than 3" from all terrain features and more than 3" from all enemy units. Then place the caster on top of the endless spell.

A WIZARD on a Balewind Vortex cannot move. When measuring range to and from the WIZARD on the Balewind Vortex, the WIZARD and the Balewind Vortex are treated as a single model.

If the caster attempts to dispel this endless spell, it is automatically dispelled (do not make a dispelling roll). If the caster is slain, this endless spell is dispelled. If this endless spell is dispelled and the caster has not been slain, before removing the endless spell from play, set up the caster wholly within 6" of the endless spell and more than 3" from all enemy units.

Arcane Enhancement: The magical energies of a Balewind Vortex are attuned to those of the wizard who rides upon it.
Add 1 to casting, unbinding and dispelling rolls for WIZARD on a Balewind Vortex.

Held Aloft: A wizard atop a balewind vortex is protected from incoming attacks.
Subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks that target a WIZARD on a Balewind Vortex.
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.
Faction Rules
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.
19.3.2 Dispelling Endless Spells
At the start of the hero phase, each player can attempt to dispel 1 endless spell with each friendly WIZARD and friendly PRIEST. The player whose turn is taking place makes all of their dispelling attempts first. If a WIZARD attempts to dispel an endless spell, they can attempt to cast or unbind 1 fewer spell in that hero phase. If a PRIEST attempts to dispel an endless spell, they can chant 1 fewer prayer in that hero phase. The same player cannot attempt to dispel the same endless spell more than once per phase.

To attempt to dispel an endless spell, pick 1 endless spell that is within 30" of a friendly WIZARD or friendly PRIEST and that is visible to them. Then make a dispelling roll by rolling 2D6. If the roll is greater than the casting value of that endless spell, it is dispelled and removed from play. An endless spell cannot be summoned again in the turn that it is removed from play.
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.
