Hearthguard Berzerkers

Hearthguard Berzerkers are the chosen champions of the Runefather. Masterful warriors, they wade into battle, broadaxes hewing apart the foe or flamestrike poleaxes with smouldering braziers setting enemies alight.

PITCHED BATTLE PROFILE

Unit Size: 5      Points: 160
Battlefield Role: None
Base size: 32mm
Notes: Battleline if general is an AURIC RUNEFATHER

Each model in a Hearthguard Berzerkers unit is armed with a Fyresteel Throwing Axe and 1 of the following weapon options: Berzerker Broadaxe; or Flamestrike Poleaxe. All models in the unit must be armed with the same weapon option.

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

CHAMPION: 1 model in this unit can be a Karl. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that model’s melee weapons.

Duty Unto Death: Hearthguard Berzerkers are sworn to protect their lodge and its masters until their dying breath.
This unit has a ward of 4+ if it is wholly within 9" of any friendly FYRESLAYERS HEROES.

Smouldering Braziers: With each swing of a flamestrike poleaxe, the brazier chained to it arcs towards the foe, sparks and fire trailing in its wake.
If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with a Flamestrike Poleaxe is 6, that attack causes 2 mortal wounds to the target in addition to any damage it inflicts.

KEYWORDS
ORDER, FYRESLAYERS, DUARDIN, HEARTHGUARD BERZERKERS
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.
14.3 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.
