PITCHED BATTLE PROFILE

Unit Size: 1      Points: 80
Battlefield Role: Leader
Base size: 32mm
Notes: Single

An Auric Runeson is armed with a Fyresteel Throwing Axe and 1 of the following weapon options: Wyrmslayer Javelin; or Ancestral War-axe.

BATTALIONS: This warscroll can be used in the following warscroll battalions:
 • Warrior Kinband

RETINUE: At the start of the first battle round, before determining who has the first turn, you can pick 1 friendly AURIC HEARTHGUARD or HEARTHGUARD BERZERKERS unit on the battlefield that is not another unit’s retinue to be this unit’s retinue.

Royal Retinue: The bravest of warriors are hand-picked by the lodge's ruling family to serve as their bodyguards in battle.
Before you allocate a wound or mortal wound to this unit, or instead of making a ward roll for a wound or mortal wound that would be allocated to this unit, if this unit is within 3" of its retinue, you can roll a dice. On a 1-2, that wound or mortal wound is allocated to this unit as normal. On a 3+, that wound or mortal wound is allocated to this unit’s retinue instead. If the retinue has a ward, you can make a ward roll before allocating that wound or mortal wound to it.

Dauntless Assault: The leaders of the lodge are often the first into the fray, their retinue following in their wake.
After this unit has fought in the combat phase for the first time, if its retinue has not yet fought in that combat phase, is within 3" of an enemy unit and is wholly within 12" of this unit, this unit’s retinue can fight immediately.

Vying for Glory: Runesons seek their father's favour in battle by slaying the most fearsome enemy creatures.
If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made by this unit that targets a MONSTER is 6, that attack causes a number of mortal wounds to the target equal to the weapon’s Damage characteristic and the attack sequence ends.

KEYWORDS
ORDER, FYRESLAYERS, DUARDIN, HERO, AURIC RUNESON
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.
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.
14.1 Allocating Wounds
Wounds are allocated to the models in a unit 1 wound at a time. You can allocate the wounds caused to your units as you see fit. However, once you have allocated a wound to a model, you cannot allocate wounds to other models in the unit until that model is slain (see 14.2). If a unit is destroyed, all wounds that remain to be allocated to the unit are negated and have no effect.

14.3 Wards
Some abilities allow you to roll a dice to negate a wound or mortal wound. Abilities of this type are referred to as wards, and the dice roll is referred to as a ward roll. Unless stated otherwise, the ward roll is made before the wound is allocated to the model in question. Up to 1 ward roll can be made for each wound or mortal wound. If the ward roll is successful, the wound or mortal wound is negated and has no effect on the model.
