Harbinger of Decay

Slumped like sacks of flyblown offal in their mouldering saddles, Harbingers of Decay advance into battle atop vile steeds that look more dead than alive. Theirs is the gaze of Nurgle himself, and the mortal worshippers of the Plague God fight all the harder when it falls upon them. Theirs is also the touch of Nurgle, for the slightest cut from their rotswords infects a victim with virulent disease.

DESCRIPTION

A Harbinger of Decay is a single model. He wields a Plague Scythe and carries a Rotsword and Soulbound Shield. His emaciated Daemonic Mount spreads diseases with its Flyblown Bite.

ABILITIES

Soulbound Shield: Roll a dice each time you allocate a wound or mortal wound to this model as the result of a spell. On a 4+ the wound is negated.

Rotsword: Once per battle, at the start of your hero phase, pick an enemy HERO within 1" of this model and roll a dice. On a 2+ that HERO suffers D3 mortal wounds. On a 4+ that HERO suffers D3 mortal wounds, and each other enemy unit within 7" of that HERO suffers 1 mortal wound.

COMMAND ABILITIES

Morbid Vigour: You can use this command ability in your hero phase. If you do, then until your next hero phase roll a dice each time you allocate a wound or mortal wound to a friendly NURGLE MORTAL unit while they are within 7" of this model. On a 5+ the wound is negated. The same unit cannot benefit from this command ability more than once in the same phase.

14.1 Allocating Wounds
Wounds are allocated to the models in a unit 1 wound at a time. You can allocate the wounds caused to your units as you see fit. However, once you have allocated a wound to a model, you cannot allocate wounds to other models in the unit until that model is slain (see 14.2). If a unit is destroyed, all wounds that remain to be allocated to the unit are negated and have no effect.
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.
6.1 Using Command Abilities
To use a command ability, you must spend 1 command point, pick 1 friendly model to issue the command, and pick 1 friendly unit to receive the command. Unless noted otherwise, the models that can issue commands and the units they can issue them to are as follows:
  • Unit champions can issue commands to their own unit (see 22.3.2).
  • HEROES can issue commands to units that are wholly within 12" of them.
  • Generals can issue commands to units that are wholly within 18" of them.
  • TOTEMS can issue commands to units that are wholly within 18" of them.
Each command ability will say when it can be used and what effect it has on the unit that receives it. A model cannot issue more than 1 command in the same phase and a unit cannot receive more than 1 command in the same phase. In addition, you cannot use the same command ability more than once in the same phase (even for different units).
