1 model in this unit can be a Mortek Hekatos. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that model’s melee weapon.
1 in every 5 models in this unit can be a Necrophoros. Add 1 to run rolls
and charge rolls
for this unit if it includes any Necrophoroi.
Unstoppable Charge: When a Kavalos steed charges the foe, it can use its size and weight to smash the enemy to the ground and crush them beneath its nadirite-shod hooves.
After this unit makes a charge move
, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 1" of this unit and roll a number of dice equal to the unmodified charge roll
for that charge move. For each 5+, that enemy unit suffers 1 mortal wound
. In addition, this unit can move an extra 3" when it piles in
if it made a charge move in the same turn.
Deathrider Wedge: Kavalos Deathriders can charge in a deadly arrowhead formation that bursts through enemy defences.
You can use this command ability
in the charge phase
. The command can only be issued by this unit’s Mortek Hekatos, and this unit must receive the command. Until the end of that phase, models in this unit can pass across other models with a Wounds characteristic of 3 or less in the same manner as a model that can fly
