Plague Drones

Plague Drones are high-ranking Plaguebearers who travel atop Rot Flies. These daemonic mounts attack with their toxic stingers and foul mouthparts, while their riders hurl death’s heads projectiles that explode in showers of filth.

PITCHED BATTLE PROFILE

Unit Size: 3      Points: 200
Battlefield Role: None
Base size: 60mm
Notes: Battleline in a Droning Guard army

Each model in a Plague Drones unit is armed with a Plaguesword and Death’s Heads.

BATTALIONS: This warscroll can be used in the following warscroll battalions:
 • Tallyband of Nurgle

MOUNT: This unit’s Rot Flies are each armed with Claws, Mouthparts and a Sting.

FLY: This unit can fly.

CHAMPION: 1 model in this unit can be a Plaguebringer. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that model’s Plaguesword.

STANDARD BEARER: 1 in every 3 models in this unit can be an Icon Bearer. If the unmodified battleshock roll for a unit that includes any Icon Bearers is 1, you can return 1 slain model to that unit and no models in that unit flee in that battleshock phase.

MUSICIAN: 1 in every 3 models in this unit can be a Bell Toller. Re-roll battleshock rolls of 1 for enemy units that are within 6" of any friendly Bell Tollers.

Putrid Explosions: An exploding death's head covers all those in the vicinity with disease-riddled filth.
The Attacks characteristic of a Death’s Head is equal to the number of models in the target unit, to a maximum of 7.

9.4 Flying
If the warscroll used by a model says that it can fly, you can ignore other models and terrain features when you trace the path of its move across the battlefield (it flies over them). In addition, when a model that can fly starts or finishes a move on a terrain feature, instead of tracing its move across the battlefield, you can trace it ‘through the air’, as shown in the diagram below.

A flying model cannot finish a move on top of another model or finish a normal move, run or retreat within 3" of an enemy unit.
15.1 Battleshock Tests
You must make a battleshock roll for each friendly unit that has to take a battleshock test. To make a battleshock roll, roll a dice and add the number of models in the unit that were slain in that turn to the roll. If the battleshock roll is greater than the unit’s Bravery characteristic, the battleshock test has been failed. If the test is failed, for each point by which the battleshock roll exceeds the unit’s Bravery characteristic, 1 model in that unit must flee. You decide which models flee. A model that flees is removed from play.

If a slain model is returned to its unit in the same turn that it is slain, it still counts as having been slain in that battle round for the purposes of battleshock tests.
