An Auric Runefather atop the back of a flame-spewing Magmadroth thunders into battle, hacking down enemies with his latchkey grandaxe while his steed tears apart foes by the dozen with its searing talons and blazing maw. As fearless as they are mighty, these formidable warlords inspire awed devotion in those they command.

An Auric Runefather on Magmadroth is armed with a Fyresteel Throwing Axe and Latchkey Grandaxe. BATTALIONS:
This warscroll can be used in the following warscroll battalions:
• Lords of the Lodge
This unit’s Magmadroth is armed with a Roaring Fyrestream Blazing Maw, and Claws and Horns.
Roaring Fyrestream: Throwing back its head, a Magmadroth can spew a wave of flaming bile that melts swathes of the enemy as though they were wax.
The Attacks characteristic of a Roaring Fyrestream is equal to the number of models in the target unit (to a maximum Attacks characteristic of 10).
In addition, at the end of your shooting phase
, if this unit did not make an attack with its Roaring Fyrestream in that phase, you can say that an inferno is raging inside this unit. If an inferno is raging inside this unit, improve the Rend characteristic of its Roaring Fyrestream by 2. After the next attack made with this unit’s Roaring Fyrestream has been resolved, an inferno is no longer raging inside this unit.
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 unit. If the roll is equal to or less than the number of models in that enemy unit, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds
Volcanic Blood: Born of fire and flame, Magmadroths pulse with the throbbing heat of the volcanic caverns in which they make their fyrenests.
Roll a dice each time a wound caused by an attack made with a melee weapon is allocated to this unit. On a 4+, the attacking unit suffers 1 mortal wound
Lord of the Lodge: With discipline and zeal in equal measure, the Runefather inspires his warriors to bring down the wrath of Grimnir upon any who oppose them.
Once per battle, at the start of your combat phase
, you can pick 1 friendly unit on the battlefield with this ability to unleash the wrath of Grimnir. If you do so, until the end of that phase, add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of melee weapons used by friendly FYRESLAYERS
units while they are wholly within 12" of that unit.
