of 5+. In addition, for each unmodified ward roll of 6, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 3" to suffer 1 mortal wound
that cannot be negated.
By My Will: All Slaves to Darkness recognise Archaon’s supreme authority, and fear his wrath more than any foe should they fail him.
This is a command ability

unit must receive it (this unit cannot issue this command
to itself). Until the end of that phase, each time a model in the receiving unit is slain it can fight.

or the abilities
of an endless spell
, you can roll a dice. If you do so, on a 4+, ignore the effects of that spell or endless spell on this unit.
The Eye of Sheerian: Ripped from the corpse of the Chaos Dragon Flamefang, this ancient treasure forewarns Archaon of events yet to pass and with this foresight the Everchosen can adapt his strategies to the flow of the battle and always stay a step ahead of his opponents.
