 • 2 units of Bladegheist Revenants

Battlefield Role: Warscroll Battalion

 • Nighthaunt Procession


Frenzied Fervour: The Bladegheists of the Shroudguard are cursed with fanatical devotion to their spectral lord, and are incredibly hard to destroy in his presence.
Roll a dice each time you allocate a wound or mortal wound to a BLADEGHEIST REVENANT model from a unit in this battalion wholly within 12" of a KNIGHT OF SHROUDS or REIKENOR THE GRIMHAILER from the same battalion. On a 5+, that wound or mortal wound is negated. If you use this ability, you cannot also use the Deathless Spirits battle trait to try to negate the same wound or mortal wound.
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.
