Merwyrm

Merwyrms are nightmarish creatures able to traverse both land and sea. Harbouring a malice cultivated in their endless struggle for survival upon the ocean floor, they loose this hatred upon any foolish enough go into battle against them.

DESCRIPTION

A Merwyrm is armed with Chill Breath, Hideous Jaws and a Powerful Tail.

MONSTROUS ALLY: This unit can be included as an allied unit in an army whose general has the DESTRUCTION or ORDER keyword.

ABILITIES

Abyssal Predator: The Merwyrm’s usual prey are the leviathans of the deep, and they have a talent for latching onto their quarry and tearing away great chunks of flesh.
If the unmodified wound roll for an attack made with this model’s Hideous Jaws is 6, the Damage characteristic of that weapon for that attack is D6 instead of D3.

Stench of the Deep: The air around this beast is filled with an unholy stench of rotting flesh and brackish filth. This putrid smell upturns stomachs and stings eyes, weakening and blinding its enemies before they can attack.
Subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks made with melee weapons that target this model.

Unnatural Metabolism: The Merwyrm’s cavernous jaws are so huge that stories abound of its ability to swallow a person whole, its wounds sealing each time it devours an unfortunate victim.
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.

KEYWORDS
MONSTER, MERWYRM
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).
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.
14.4 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.

The MONSTER keyword is used in the following Orruk Warclans warscrolls:
