DESCRIPTION

A unit of Hearthguard Berzerkers has any number of models, each armed with Fyresteel Throwing Axes. In addition, the unit is armed with one of the following weapon options: Berzerker Broadaxe; or Flamestrike Poleaxe.

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

ABILITIES

Duty Unto Death: Hearthguard Berzerkers are sworn to protect their lodge and its masters to their dying breath.
Roll a dice each time you allocate a wound or mortal wound to this unit. Add 2 to the roll if there are any friendly FYRESLAYERS HEROES within 10" of this unit. On a 6+ that wound or mortal wound is negated.

Smouldering Braziers: With each swing of a flamestrike poleaxe, the brazier chained to it arcs toward 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 inflicts 2 mortal wounds on the target in addition to any normal damage.

KEYWORDS
ORDER, DUARDIN, FYRESLAYERS, HEARTHGUARD BERZERKERS
13.1.2 Combat Attacks
When a friendly unit fights, you must make combat attacks with all of the melee weapons the models in the unit are armed with that they are allowed to use (including melee weapons used by the unit’s mounts, if there are any).

The target of a combat attack must be within a number of inches of the attacking model equal to the Range characteristic of the weapon being used to make the attack (the target does not have to be visible).
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.

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.
