DESCRIPTION

An Auric Runefather on Magmadroth is a single model armed with a Latchkey Grandaxe and Fyresteel Throwing Axes.

MOUNT: This model’s Magmadroth attacks with its Claws and Horns, Blazing Maw and a Roaring Fyrestream.

ABILITIES

Roaring Fyrestream: Throwing back its head, a Magmadroth can spew a wave of flaming bile that sears through armour as though it were wax.
Do not use the attack sequence for an attack made with a Roaring Fyrestream. Instead, make the dice roll shown on the damage table above. If the roll is equal to or less than the number of models in the target unit, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. If the roll is equal to or less than the number of models in the target unit, and the target unit is within 6" of this model, the target unit suffers D6 mortal wounds instead.

Lashing Tail: Magmadroths can use their muscular spiked tails to pulverise scores of lesser prey with a single swipe.
At the end of the combat phase, roll a dice for each enemy unit within 3" of this model. If the roll is less than the number of models in that unit, it suffers D3 mortal wounds.

Volcanic Blood: Magmadroths pulse with the throbbing heat of the volcanic caverns where they make their fyrenests.
Roll a dice each time a wound is allocated to this model that was inflicted by a melee weapon. On a 4+ the attacking unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

Stare Down: A Runefather’s stern gaze can bring doubt to the mind of the most stalwart warrior.
In your hero phase, pick an enemy unit within 3" of this model. Subtract D3 from that unit’s Bravery characteristic until the start of your next hero phase.

Weapon-breaker: A latchkey grandaxe’s unique design allows the wielder to catch an enemy’s weapon between its metal teeth before breaking it with a forceful twist of the arm.
At the end of the combat phase, pick an enemy HERO within 3" of this model and roll a dice. On a 6, pick one of the melee weapons that model is armed with. Subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks made with that weapon for the rest of the battle. You cannot pick the same weapon to be affected by this ability more than once per battle.

COMMAND ABILITIES

Steadfast Advance: With a fiery glance down from his throne atop a mighty Magmadroth, a Runefather can compel his kin to march into battle against a thousand times their number to earn their fee in gold.
You can use this command ability at the start of your hero phase. If you do so, pick a friendly model with this command ability. Until the start of your next hero phase, do not take battleshock tests for friendly FYRESLAYERS units while they are wholly within 18" of that model.

KEYWORDS
ORDER, DUARDIN, MAGMADROTH, FYRESLAYERS, MONSTER, HERO, AURIC RUNEFATHER
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.
13.1.2 Combat Attacks
When a friendly unit fights, you must make combat attacks with all of the melee weapons the models in the unit are armed with that they are allowed to use (including melee weapons used by the unit’s mounts, if there are any).

The target of a combat 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 target does not have to be visible).
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.
6.1 Using Command Abilities
To use a command ability, you must spend 1 command point, pick 1 friendly model to issue the command, and pick 1 friendly unit to receive the command. Unless noted otherwise, the models that can issue commands and the units they can issue them to are as follows:
  • Unit champions can issue commands to their own unit (see 22.3.2).
  • HEROES can issue commands to units that are wholly within 12" of them.
  • Generals can issue commands to units that are wholly within 18" of them.
  • TOTEMS can issue commands to units that are wholly within 18" of them.
Each command ability will say when it can be used and what effect it has on the unit that receives it. A model cannot issue more than 1 command in the same phase and a unit cannot receive more than 1 command in the same phase. In addition, you cannot use the same command ability more than once in the same phase (even for different units).
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.
