Gotrek Gurnisson

Even before the destruction of the world-that-was, Gotrek Gurnisson was the greatest monster slayer of his age. Now, armed with the legendary axe Zangrom-Thaz and bearing the Master Rune of Krag Blackhammer, he has become a veritable demigod of battle.

Unit Size: 1      Points: 435

Base size: 32mm
Notes: Single, Unique. This unit can be included as an ally in any army that has an ORDER general. If this unit is included in an army, no other allied units can be included in the army.

DESCRIPTION

Gotrek Gurnisson is a named character that is; single model. He is armed with Zangrom-Thaz.

ABILITIES

Avatar of Grimnir: Gotrek has survived countless battles and trials over the years, to become an almost unstoppable avatar of the duardin warrior-god Grimnir.
If the damage inflicted by an attack, spell or ability that targets or affects this model is greater than 1, change it to 1. In addition, if a spell or ability would slay this model, this model suffers 1 mortal wound instead. However, if this model is included in your army, it cannot be set up in reserve (it must be set up on the battlefield), and you cannot use spells or abilities on this model that would allow you to set it up again after the battle has begun.

Krag Blackhammer’s Master Rune: This ur-gold rune has enhanced Gotrek’s already prodigious natural abilities manyfold, allowing him to swiftly strike down even the most powerful of foes.
You can re-roll hit and wound rolls for attacks made by this model. In addition, if the unmodified hit roll for an attack made by this model is 6, that attack inflicts D6 mortal wounds on the target in addition to any normal damage.

Unstoppable Battle Fury: Once Gotrek has started to fight, he continues to do so with a relentless fury that abates only when all his opponents lie slain.
At the end of the combat phase, if this model is within 3" of an enemy unit, this model can fight again.

Shoulder Plate of Edassa: On his left shoulder - the side that was once protected by Felix Jaeger - Gotrek wears a section ofplate armour forged in the image of a roaring lion. Through some form of spiritual protection or perhaps just pure luck, the ornate artefact seems to protect its wearer from a great deal of harm.
Roll a dice each time you allocate a wound or mortal wound to this model. On a 3+, that wound or mortal wound is negated.

KEYWORDS
ORDER, DUARDIN, HERO, GOTREK GURNISSON
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.
3.1 Reserve Units and Summoned Units
Sometimes a rule will allow you to set up a unit in a location other than the battlefield as a reserve unit. A unit that is added to your army once the battle is underway is called a summoned unit.

When you set up a reserve unit, either during deployment or once the battle is underway, you must tell your opponent that the unit is in reserve and keep it to one side instead of placing it on the battlefield. At the start of the fourth battle round, units that are still in reserve are destroyed. Units cannot cast spells or use abilities while they are in reserve unless the spell or ability specifically says it can be used by reserve units.

Reserve units are picked as part of your army before the battle begins, while summoned units are units added to your army once the battle is underway. Models that have been removed from play can be used as part of a summoned unit.
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.
14.5 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.
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.
14.5 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.
