An Auric Runesmiter on Magmadroth is a single model armed with a Latch-axe and Fyresteel Throwing Axes. In addition, it is armed with one of the following weapon options: Runic Iron or Forge Key.
This model’s Magmadroth attacks with its Claws and Horns, Blazing Maw and a Roaring Fyrestream.
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
Grand Ritual of Awakening: The Runesmiter consecrates a small nugget of ur-gold over the runic altar, then consumes it to unleash a wave of energy.
Once per battle, during your hero phase
, you can say this model has consumed a nugget of ur-gold. If you do so, add 1 to save rolls
for attacks that target friendly FYRESLAYERS
units wholly within 12" of this model until the start of your next hero phase.
Runic Empowerment: With a sonorous chant, the Runesmiter infuses the ur-gold runes set into the flesh of his Fyreslayer kin with power.
Runic Empowerment is a prayer that has an answer value
of 3 and a range of 12". If the chanter carries a Forge Key, this prayer has a range of 18" instead. If answered, pick 1 friendly FYRESLAYERS
unit wholly within range and visible to the chanter. Add 1 to wound rolls
for attacks made by that unit until the start of your next hero phase
