Spoilpox Scrivener, Herald of Nurgle

Spoilpox Scriveners keep a strict watch over the tallying of the Plaguebearers. Should an enemy stray too close, they bite off heads and limbs with their trunklike maws, or blanket them in foul mucus with almighty sneezes.

Keep Counting, I’m Watching You: Spoilpox Scriveners are responsible for making sure that the Plaguebearers of the tallybands do not shirk their duties.
At the start of the combat phase, you can say that this unit will call for a count. If you do so, pick 1 friendly PLAGUEBEARER HOST wholly within 14" of this unit and pick 1 of the following counts for that unit to carry out. The effect of that count lasts until the end of that phase. A unit cannot carry out more than 1 count per phase.

Tally of Blows: Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of melee weapons used by a unit carrying out this count.

Studied Lacerations: Improve the Rend characteristic of melee weapons used by a unit carrying out this count by 1.

Recorded Stamina: Add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target a unit carrying out this count.

Save Roll
Your opponent rolls a dice, modifying the roll by the attacking weapon’s Rend characteristic. If the roll equals or beats the target unit’s Save characteristic, the target is saved and the attack sequence ends. If not, the attack is successful and you must determine the damage that is inflicted on the target. An unmodified save roll of 1 always fails. A save roll cannot be modified by more than +1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).

Designer’s Note: Save rolls do not always succeed on an unmodified roll of 6, and they can be modified by more than -1.
