Nagash is armed with Alakanash, Zefet-nebtar and Gaze of Nagash.

WIZARD: This unit can attempt to cast 3 spells in your hero phase and attempt to unbind 3 spells in the enemy hero phase. If this unit is part of a Nighthaunt, Flesh-eater Courts, Ossiarch Bonereapers or Soulblight Gravelords army, it knows all of the spells from the spell lores in that faction’s allegiance abilities in addition to the other spells it knows.

WARMASTER: This unit can be included in a Nighthaunt, Flesh-eater Courts, Ossiarch Bonereapers or Soulblight Gravelords army. If it is, it is treated as a general even if it is not the model picked to be the army’s general. In addition, you can still use the army’s allegiance abilities even though this unit is not from the army’s faction; however, this unit does not benefit from them.

FLY: This unit can fly.

COMPANION: This unit is accompanied by a host of spirits armed with Spectral Claws and Daggers.

Alakanash, the Staff of Power: This staff is capped with gems of purest Shyishan realmstone.
Add the Staff of Power value shown on this unit’s damage table to casting, dispelling and unbinding rolls for this unit. In addition, this unit can attempt to cast Arcane Bolt any number of times in the same hero phase, even if another WIZARD has already attempted to cast the spell in that phase.

The Nine Books of Nagash: Nagash has committed to memory much of his vast library but carries nine of the most potent tomes with him at all times.
The Nine Books of Nagash allow this unit to cast extra spells in your hero phase and unbind extra spells in the enemy hero phase. The number of extra spells this unit can attempt to cast or unbind is shown on this unit’s damage table.

Invocation of Nagash: With but a thought, Nagash can call forth fresh minions to assail his foes.
At the start of your hero phase, if this unit is on the battlefield, you can pick up to 5 different friendly SUMMONABLE units or friendly OSSIARCH BONEREAPERS units in any combination. For each of those units, you can either heal up to 3 wounds that have been allocated to that unit or, if no wounds have been allocated to it, you can return a number of slain models to that unit that have a combined Wounds characteristic of 3 or less.

Morikhane: This ensorcelled armour protects Nagash from arcane as well as physical attacks and can even cause an intense magical backlash on those who dare strike him.
This unit has a ward of 4+ for damage inflicted by mortal wounds. In addition, if the unmodified ward roll for this unit is 6, that attacking unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

Supreme Lord of the Undead: Nagash is the undisputed master of all undead creatures.
If this unit is on the battlefield when you use an ability that returns slain models to a friendly DEATH unit, you can either re-roll the dice that determines the number of slain models returned to that unit or add 1 to the number of slain models that are returned to that unit.

Death Magic Incarnate: Nagash stands at the apex of the necromantic hierarchy.
You can use this command ability if this unit is on the battlefield at the start of the combat phase. The unit that receives this command must be a different friendly DEATH unit. Add 1 to ward rolls for that unit until the end of that phase.

Hand of Dust: It is said that the touch of Nagash can wither and age any mortal, turning them to little more than a pile of dusty bones in mere moments.
Hand of Dust is a spell that has a casting value of 8 and a range of 3". If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy model within range and visible to the caster. Then, take a dice and hide it in one of your hands or under one of two appropriate containers. Your opponent must pick one of your hands or containers. If they pick the one holding the dice, the spell has no effect. If they pick the empty hand or container, the enemy model is slain.

Soul Stealer: Nagash can siphon souls from the living to heal his own wounds.
Soul Stealer is a spell that has a casting value of 6 and a range of 24". If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy unit within range and visible to the caster and roll 2D6. If the roll is greater than that unit’s Bravery characteristic, it suffers D3 mortal wounds. If the roll is at least double that unit’s Bravery characteristic, it suffers D6 mortal wounds instead. You can heal up to 1 wound that has been allocated to the caster for each mortal wound caused by this spell that is not negated.

Awlrach the Drowner

Awlrach the Drowner once promised aid and salvation to the living, though he gave them nothing but death in the briny deeps. Chosen as a champion by Nagash, this consummate betrayer now takes souls to bolster the Nighthaunt legions and ferries them to where they are needed most.

FLY: This unit can fly.

Passage Through the Underworlds: A master of navigation, Awlrach can drift through the ethereal plane to new locations at will. By the time the foe has discovered his arrival, it is all too late to stop the spectral cargo that made the journey with him.
You can use this command ability at the start of your movement phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly NIGHTHAUNT unit on the battlefield that is visible to this unit. That unit must receive the command. First, remove this unit from the battlefield and set it up again on the battlefield more than 9" from all enemy units. Then, remove that friendly NIGHTHAUNT unit from the battlefield and set it up again wholly within 12" of this unit and more than 9" from all enemy units. This counts as their move for that movement phase.

Scything Ram: Awlrach’s vessel is equipped with a deadly naval ram that can punch effortlessly through the foes’ defences, providing greater opportunity for his oar to do its worst.
After this unit makes a charge move, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 1" of this unit and roll a dice. On a 2+, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. If any models are slain by the mortal wounds caused by this ability, add D3 to the Attacks characteristic of this unit’s Deathwood Oar until the end of that turn.

Grasping Chains: The Chainrasps bound to the Briar Queen throw themselves in harm's way for their mistress, ensnaring her foes to allow for escape or quick vengeance.
Before you allocate a wound or mortal wound to this unit, or instead of making a ward roll for a wound or mortal wound that would be allocated to this unit, if this unit is within 3" of its retinue, roll a dice.

Howling Vortex: A pitch-black void of shrieking winds opens in the air, dragging the victim towards it.
Howling Vortex is a spell that has a casting value of 7 and a range of 18". If successfully cast, pick a point on the battlefield within range and visible to the caster. Then, roll 2D6 for each enemy unit within 6" of that point. If the roll is greater than that unit’s unmodified Move characteristic, or the roll is a double, that unit suffers 1 mortal wound and its Move characteristic is halved until your next hero phase.

DESCRIPTION

A Mourngul is armed with Nightmarish Claws and Fangs.

FLY: This model can fly.

ABILITIES

Devourer of Flesh and Souls: The unholy essence of a Mourngul is nourished by the souls of those it devours.
At the end of the combat phase, if any enemy models were slain by wounds inflicted by this model’s attacks in that combat phase, you can heal up to D3 wounds allocated to this model.

Ethereal: Creatures whose bodies have rotted away are difficult to harm with ordinary weapons.
Ignore modifiers (positive and negative) when making save rolls for attacks that target this model.

Frightful Touch: Just one touch from a Mourngul’s claws can still the heart of a mortal opponent.
If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with this model’s Nightmarish Claws and Fangs is 6, that attack causes 2 mortal wounds to the target and the attack sequence ends (do not make a wound or save roll).

Ghastly Apparition: Mournguls are soulsearing horrors to look upon, radiating an aura of supernatural terror, unutterable despair and ravenous hunger.
Subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks made by enemy units while they are within 6" of any friendly models with this ability.

19.1 Casting Spells
In your hero phase, you can attempt to cast spells with friendly WIZARDS. You cannot attempt to cast the same spell more than once in the same hero phase, even with a different WIZARD. In order to attempt to cast a spell, pick a friendly WIZARD, say which of the spells that they know will be attempted, and then make a casting roll by rolling 2D6. If the casting roll is equal to or greater than the casting value of the spell, the spell is successfully cast.
19.1.2 Unbinding Spells
If a spell is successfully cast, your opponent can pick 1 of their WIZARDS that is within 30" of the caster to attempt to unbind the spell before its effects are applied. In order to attempt to unbind a spell, first say which WIZARD will attempt to unbind it. Then make an unbinding roll by rolling 2D6. If the unbinding roll is greater than the roll used to cast the spell, then the spell is unbound and its effects are not applied. The number of spells a WIZARD can attempt to unbind is noted on their warscroll. Only 1 unbinding attempt can be made for each spell.
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.
19.3.2 Dispelling Endless Spells
At the start of the hero phase, each player can attempt to dispel 1 endless spell with each friendly WIZARD and friendly PRIEST. The player whose turn is taking place makes all of their dispelling attempts first. If a WIZARD attempts to dispel an endless spell, they can attempt to cast or unbind 1 fewer spell in that hero phase. If a PRIEST attempts to dispel an endless spell, they can chant 1 fewer prayer in that hero phase. The same player cannot attempt to dispel the same endless spell more than once per phase.

To attempt to dispel an endless spell, pick 1 endless spell that is within 30" of a friendly WIZARD or friendly PRIEST and that is visible to them. Then make a dispelling roll by rolling 2D6. If the roll is greater than the casting value of that endless spell, it is dispelled and removed from play. An endless spell cannot be summoned again in the turn that it is removed from play.
Arcane Bolt
The caster calls forth a ball of crackling arcane energy that hovers above their outstretched hand, ready to be hurled at a foe.
Arcane Bolt is a spell that has a casting value of 5 and a range of 12". If successfully cast, at the start of any 1 phase before your next hero phase, you can pick 1 enemy unit within range and visible to the caster. That unit suffers 1 mortal wound. If that unit is within 3" of the caster, it suffers D3 mortal wounds instead of 1.

14.4 Healing Wounds
Some abilities allow you to heal wounds that have been allocated to a model. For each wound that is healed, reduce the number of wounds allocated to the model by 1, to a minimum of 0. You cannot heal wounds on a model that is slain.
14.2 Slain Models
Once the number of wounds allocated to a model equals its Wounds characteristic, the model is slain and you cannot allocate any more wounds to it. A slain model is removed from play (see 1.2.2) after all of the wounds caused to its unit have been allocated and all attacks that inflicted damage on the unit have been resolved.
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.
14.3 Wards
Some abilities allow you to roll a dice to negate a wound or mortal wound. Abilities of this type are referred to as wards, and the dice roll is referred to as a ward roll. Unless stated otherwise, the ward roll is made before the wound is allocated to the model in question. Up to 1 ward roll can be made for each wound or mortal wound. If the ward roll is successful, the wound or mortal wound is negated and has no effect on the model.
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).

11.1 Charge Moves
When you attempt a charge with a unit, make a charge roll for the unit by rolling 2D6. You can then make a charge move with each model in that unit by moving the model a distance in inches that is equal to or less than the charge roll. The first model you move in a unit attempting a charge must finish the move within 1/2" of an enemy unit. If this is impossible, no models in the unit can make a charge move.

You do not have to pick a target for a charge attempt before making the charge roll.

The TOTEM keyword is used in the following Nighthaunt warscrolls:

Wound Roll
Roll a dice. If the roll equals or beats the attacking weapon’s To Wound characteristic, the attack wounds the target and your opponent must make a save roll. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified wound roll of 1 always fails and an unmodified wound roll of 6 always wounds. A wound roll cannot be modified by more than +1 or -1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).

Redeploy
As the enemy draw close, battle-hardened warriors adjust their position to leave their foe at a disadvantage.
You can use this command ability in the enemy movement phase after an enemy unit finishes a normal move, run or retreat. The unit that receives the command must be within 9" of that enemy unit and more than 3" from all enemy units. You can make a D6" move with the unit that receives the command, but it must finish the move more than 3" from all enemy units and cannot shoot later in the turn.
Unleash Hell
These warriors have prepared their missile weapons so they can unleash a devastating volley at the last possible moment.
You can use this command ability after an enemy unit finishes a charge move. The unit that receives the command must be within 6" of that enemy unit and more than 3" from all other enemy units. Models in the unit that receives the command that are within 6" of the target unit can shoot in that phase, but when they do so, you must subtract 1 from hit rolls for their attacks and they can only target the unit that made the charge move.

The KNIGHT OF SHROUDS keyword is used in the following Nighthaunt warscrolls:

All-out Attack
With a singular purpose, these warriors attack with all of their might.
You can use this command ability when you pick a friendly unit to shoot in your shooting phase or fight in the combat phase. That unit must receive the command. Add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by that unit until the end of that phase.
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.

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.

Rally
At a shouted command, injured warriors stagger back to their feet and prepare to fight once more.
You can use this command ability at the start of the hero phase. The unit that receives the command must be more than 3" from all enemy units. Roll 1 dice for each slain model from that unit. For each 6, you can return 1 slain model to that unit.
17.1.1 Cover
A target unit is in cover if all of the models in the unit are wholly on a terrain feature or behind a terrain feature. Add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target a unit that is in cover. A unit that has a Wounds characteristic of 10 or more or that has made a charge move in the same turn does not receive the benefit of being in cover.
8.1 Normal Move
When you pick a unit to make a normal move, you can move each model in that unit a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move characteristic shown on the unit’s warscroll. Units cannot move within 3" of enemy units when making a normal move.
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.
8.2 Retreat
When you pick a unit to retreat, you can move each model in that unit a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move characteristic shown on the unit’s warscroll. The unit must end the move more than 3" from all enemy units. You cannot shoot or attempt a charge later in the turn with a unit that has retreated.
1.5.5 Dice Roll Modifiers
Sometimes a modifier will apply to a dice roll. Modifiers are applied after re-rolls. Rules that refer to an unmodified roll are referring to the dice roll after re-rolls have been made but before modifiers are applied. If a rule instructs you to pick or change a roll, do so after re-rolls are made but before modifiers are applied.

In most cases, modifiers are cumulative. However, some dice rolls, such as hit and wound rolls, will specify that the roll cannot be modified by more than +1 or -1. When this is the case, add up all the modifiers that apply, and if the total is more than +1 or -1, treat it as being either +1 or -1 as appropriate.
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.
