Gloomspite Gitz – Basilisk

This warscroll does not meet the selection criteria (see Filter combo-box or Settings tab).


Basilisks are creatures so inimical to life that they poison the very ground they walk on. They are a living blight that can swiftly reduce an area to ruinous wasteland, destroying crops and slaughtering livestock with venom that suffuses both body and spirit.

A Basilisk is armed with Acidic Spittle, a Venomous Bite and Clutching Claws.

MONSTROUS ALLY: This unit can be included as an allied unit in an army whose general has the DESTRUCTION keyword.


Corrosive Miasma: The poisons that emanate from the Basilisk’s skin are so toxic that they leave anyone nearby choking on their own blood as they fall victim to their corrosive effects.
At the start of the combat phase, roll a dice for each enemy unit within 3" of this model. On a 2+, that unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

Malignant Gaze: The Basilisk focuses its malice upon its intended victim, its eyes radiating with evil as the enemy slowly melts into a pile of steaming flesh and blistering metal.
In your hero phase, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 12" of this model and visible to it, and roll a dice. On a 1, nothing happens. On a 2-3, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. On a 4+, that unit suffers D3+1 mortal wounds.

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.

The DESTRUCTION keyword is used in the following Gloomspite Gitz warscrolls:
