Vanari Bannerblade

The central point of many a Vanari battleline, each Bannerblade is a locus of surety in the maelstrom of battle. The World Banners they bear are priceless artefacts, for they can unleash the power of a Hyshian dawn to blind, melt and even kill.

DESCRIPTION

A Vanari Bannerblade is a single model armed with a Bannerblade’s Sword.

ABILITIES

World Banner: This mighty standard is adorned with symbols of great importance to the Lumineth. In extremis, it can be used to unleash a blast of Hyshian energy to smite enemies.
Add 1 to the Bravery characteristic of friendly LUMINETH REALM-LORDS units that are wholly within 18" of any friendly BANNERBLADES. Add 3 instead of 1 if any of those BANNERBLADES is within 3" of any enemy units.

In addition, once per battle at the start of any phase, you can say that this model will draw on the power of its World Banner. If you do so, roll a dice for each enemy unit within 18" of this model. If the roll is equal to or less than the number of the current battle round, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds, and subtract 1 from hit rolls for that unit until the end of that phase.

Sunmetal Weapons: The swords carried by Vanari Bannerblades are forged from sunmetal, which can burn a victim from the inside out.
If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with a Bannerblade’s Sword is 6, that attack inflicts 1 mortal wound on the target and the attack sequence ends (do not make a wound or save roll).

The BANNERBLADE keyword is used in the following Lumineth Realm-lords warscrolls:

Leader
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.

A wound roll cannot be modified by more than +1 or -1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).
