Avalenor is the eldest and wisest of all Hysh’s mountain spirits. He alone chose to stand with the aelves of his own accord, and his twin Firestealer Hammers have never rested in the defence of Hysh and its sibling realms - nor shall they while a single servant of the Dark Gods draws breath.

This warscroll can be used in the following warscroll battalions:
• Alarith Battlehost
All but Immovable: A Spirit of the Mountain is at its most dangerous when it pauses, plants its feet solidly on the ground and takes careful stock of its surroundings before inflicting carnage upon its enemies.
If this unit does not make a charge move
in your charge phase
, add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of this unit’s melee weapons until your next movement phase
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 ‘-’.
Firestealer Hammers: The Firestealer Hammers channel the intense and freezing temperatures of Avalenor’s peak.
If the unmodified hit roll
for an attack made with the Firestealer Hammers is 6, that attack causes 1 mortal wound
to the target in addition to any damage it inflicts.
Guardian of Hysh: It is said that Avalenor is formed entirely of aetherquartz, causing him to glow with a dazzling light in even the darkest of locations.
Subtract 1 from hit rolls
for attacks made by enemy units within range of this unit’s Guardian of Hysh ability. The range of this unit’s Guardian of Hysh ability is shown on its damage table
Stonemage Symbiosis: Stonemages are able to sustain a Spirit of the Mountain, allowing them to fight to their fullest potential.
If this unit is within 12" of a friendly STONEMAGE
, use the top row on this unit’s damage table
, regardless of how many wounds it has suffered.
Unshakeable Faith of the Mountains: A Spirit of the Mountain can inspire its aelven supplicants to fight all the harder in the name of Hysh.
You can use this command ability
at the start of your combat phase
. The unit that receives the command must be a friendly ALARITH AELF
unit. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that unit’s melee weapons until the end of that phase. This unit can issue this command
up to 3 times in the same phase. If it does so, no command points
are spent the second and third times this unit issues this command in that phase. The same unit cannot benefit from this ability and the Faith of the Mountains
ability in the same phase.
