Mortevell’s Helcourt

Amongst the deluded cannibals of the Ymetrican Flesh-eaters, there are none more devoted to Nagash than Gorstane Mortevell. With screeching, howling invective, the ghoulish emperor drives his ‘court’ into a frenzy of religious devotion. To their victims, it is nothing more than a rabid display of madness.
 • 1 Abhorrant Archregent (Gorstane Mortevell)
 • 1 Crypt Horrors unit
 • 1 Crypt Ghouls unit
The Abhorrant Archregent from this battalion is a unique named character. All units from this battalion must have the HOLLOWMOURNE keyword.

Unit Size: -      Points: 100
Battlefield Role: Warscroll Battalion


Religious Fervour: Mortevell’s followers are chosen only from the most fervent of those Flesh-eaters who worship Nagash.
Do not take battleshock tests for units from this battalion that are wholly within 12" of the ABHORRANT ARCHREGENT from the same battalion.


If Gorstane Mortevell is your army’s general, he must have this command trait instead of one from Battletome: Flesh-eater Courts:

The Bright Emperor: Gorstane Mortevell seems himself as the foremost leader of Nagash’s church, and directs his flock with a feverish, self-possessed authority.
Once per battle, this general can use the Ravenous Crusaders command ability without a command point being spent.
15.1 Battleshock Tests
You must make a battleshock roll for each friendly unit that has to take a battleshock test. To make a battleshock roll, roll a dice and add the number of models in the unit that were slain in that turn to the roll. If the battleshock roll is greater than the unit’s Bravery characteristic, the battleshock test has been failed. If the test is failed, for each point by which the battleshock roll exceeds the unit’s Bravery characteristic, 1 model in that unit must flee. You decide which models flee. A model that flees is removed from play.

If a slain model is returned to its unit in the same turn that it is slain, it still counts as having been slain in that battle round for the purposes of battleshock tests.

The ABHORRANT ARCHREGENT keyword is used in the following Flesh-eater Courts warscrolls:

27.3.2 Command Traits
Each time you take a command trait enhancement, you can pick 1 command trait and give it to your general. You can never pick more than 1 command trait for your army, and command traits can only be given to a general that is a HERO.
