Execution Horde

When an Execution Horde is summoned, a Lord Executioner is surrounded by Spirit Hosts composed of the massed and intermingled souls of those whom he slew in life. The Nighthaunts use such small but hard-hitting battalions to supplement their fighting strength, often working alongside the massed Chainguard.

An Execution Horde consists of the following units:
 • 1 Lord Executioner

ABILITIES

The Headsman’s Masses: The spirit swarms that accompany an Execution Horde’s master serve to distract his prey whilst he delivers the killing blow.
Subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks that target this battalion’s LORD EXECUTIONER while a SPIRIT HOST unit from this battalion is within 6" of the attacker’s unit. In addition, add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by this battalion’s LORD EXECUTIONER while any SPIRIT HOST units from this battalion are within 6" of the target unit.
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.
