A Mortek Crawler is a single model armed with a Dread Catapult.
CREW: Dread Catapult: The crew of a Mortek Crawler can load the catapult arm with a variety of ammunition types depending upon the nature of the target.
This model has a crew of Mortek Engineers that attack with Crawler Tools. For rules purposes, the crew are treated in the same manner as a mount
Before shooting with a Dread Catapult, choose either the Necrotic Skulls, Cauldron of Torment or Cursed Stele weapon characteristics for that attack. Each Dread Catapult can only make 1 Cauldron of Torment and 1 Cursed Stele attack per battle.Cauldron of Torment:
Do not use the attack sequence for an attack made with a Cauldron of Torment. Instead, pick 1 enemy unit that is in range of the attack and roll 1 dice for each model in the target unit. Add the modifier for Cauldron of Torment shown on the damage table above to each roll. If the result is equal to or greater than the unmodified Bravery characteristic of the target unit, 1 model from that unit is slain.Cursed Stele:
Do not use the attack sequence for an attack made with a Cursed Stele. Instead, pick 1 enemy model that is in range of the attack and roll 2D6. Add the modifier for Cursed Stele shown on the damage table above to the roll. If the result is equal to or greater than the Wounds characteristic of the target, it is slain.Designer’s Comment: Note that the chance of slaying the target of a Cursed Stele increases as the attacking model suffers damage.
