Alarith Stonemages are experts in the magic of rock and earth, for they are as one with their mountain masters. In battle, they hurl boulders, turn their flesh to impervious stone and even control gravity itself to annihilate their foes.

• Alarith Battlehost
This unit can attempt to cast
1 spell in your hero phase
and attempt to unbind
1 spell in the enemy hero phase.
Stonemage Stance: A Stonemage is able to adopt a stance that allows them to deliver blows with shattering force. Nearby Alarith Stoneguard can emulate their movements to land equally powerful attacks.
At the start of the combat phase
, you can say that this unit will adopt the Stonemage stance. If you do so, this unit and any friendly STONEGUARD
units wholly within 12" of this unit cannot make pile-in moves
in that phase. However, until the end of that phase, improve the Rend characteristic of melee weapons used by this unit and those friendly units by 1.
Enduring as Rock: When in a battle trance inspired by the mountain, the Alarith take on the aspect of stone, blades rebounding off their rock-hard skin.
When this unit is targeted by an attack, if the weapon used for that attack has a Rend characteristic of -1, change the Rend characteristic for that attack to ‘-’.
Gravitic Redirection: The caster reduces gravity around them to almost zero, redirecting the force to weigh down a nearby foe.
Gravitic Redirection is a spell that has a casting value
of 5 and a range of 18". If successfully cast, until your next hero phase
, the caster can fly
. In addition, you can pick 1 enemy unit within range and visible to the caster. If you do so, until your next hero phase, that unit’s Move characteristic is halved and it cannot fly.
