The Seraphon are the implacable turning of the cosmos personified. No mercy lies in their hearts – only a chillingly single-minded dedication to their goal. They are an enigmatic force in the Mortal Realms, an ancient race from beyond the stars born from an amalgam of celestial power, alien technology and a core of pure savagery.

This page contains all of the rules you need to field your Seraphon miniatures on the battlefields of the Mortal Realms, from a host of exciting allegiance abilities to a range of warscrolls and warscroll battalions. The rules are split into the following sections.

Battle Traits

Warriors of the Stars and the Realms

A Seraphon army will be made up of either celestial Starborne or savage Coalesced warriors that have settled in the Mortal Realms.

After you have chosen the Seraphon allegiance for your army, you must either give it the STARBORNE keyword or the COALESCED keyword. All SERAPHON units in your army gain that keyword, with the exception of models that already have one of the keywords on their warscroll.

Contemplations of the Ancient Ones

The slann have learnt countless spells over the millennia, and after a moment’s contemplation can recall any of them.

At the end of your hero phase, you can pick 1 friendly SLANN and replace the spell they know from the Lore of Celestial Domination table with a new spell from that table. Choose or roll for the new spell, rolling again if you generate the spell the SLANN already had.

Sacred Asterisms

The heavens themselves play a key part in the Great Plan of the Old Ones, empowering their reptilian servants.

At the start of your hero phase, you can pick 1 of the following asterisms to be in the ascendant until your next hero phase:

The Great Drake: In the combat phase, pick 1 friendly SERAPHON HERO. Until the end of that phase, you can add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of melee weapons used by that HERO.

The Hunter’s Steed: Add 1 to run rolls and charge rolls for friendly SERAPHON units.

The Sage’s Staff: At the start of the hero phase, pick 1 friendly SERAPHON WIZARD. You can add 1 to casting or dispelling rolls for that WIZARD if it is your hero phase, and you can add 1 to unbinding rolls for that WIZARD if it is the enemy hero phase.

The Coalesced Battle Traits

COALESCED army only.

Coalesced Constellations

The different Coalesced constellations make war in their own unique fashion.

If your army is a COALESCED army, you can give it the KOATL’S CLAW or THUNDER LIZARD keyword. All COALESCED units in your army gain that keyword and you can use the extra abilities listed for that Constellation.

Cold-blooded

Coalesced Seraphon are coldly impassive, rigidly steadfast and completely without mercy.

Ignore modifiers (positive or negative) to the Bravery characteristic of COALESCED units.

Predatory Fighters

Coalesced Seraphon have become more closely attuned to the primal ferocity harboured by all members of their race.

Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of Jaws weapons used by COALESCED units.

Scaly Skin

Having achieved true physicality, the scaled hides of Coalesced Seraphon become tougher with the passing of time. Many of their warriors develop thick bony plates and latticeworks of scar tissue that act as natural armour.

Subtract 1 from the damage inflicted by each successful attack that targets a COALESCED unit that has the SAURUS, KROXIGOR or MONSTER keyword (to a minimum of 1).

Primeval Domain

The land surrounding a Coalesced temple-city is magically reformed into a primeval wilderness, deadly to outsiders yet the perfect habitat for the savage lizardfolk.

If a terrain feature is partially or wholly within the territory of a Coalesced army, then it has the Mystical and Deadly Mysterious Terrain scenery rules (section 28.1.3 of the core rules) in addition to any other Mysterious Terrain scenery rules it may have. The Mystical scenery rule for these terrain features only applies to COALESCED units, while the Deadly scenery rule for these terrain features does not apply to COALESCED units.

The Starborne Battle Traits

STARBORNE army only.

Unfeeling

Starborne are the children of Azyr, filled with the light of the stars and fighting to enact the cosmic plan of their creators.

STARBORNE units have a Bravery characteristic of 10 instead of the Bravery characteristic on their warscroll.

Celestial Conjuration

The slann leaders of the Starborne can call forth armies of Seraphon from their temple-ships in the blink of an eye.

You can summon STARBORNE units to the battlefield if you collect enough celestial conjuration points (CCPs). At the start of your hero phase you receive D3 celestial conjuration points if your general is a SLANN or STARSEER and is on the battlefield, and D3 celestial conjuration points if there are one or more friendly SAURUS ASTROLITH BEARERS on the battlefield.

In addition, in your hero phase, before attempting to cast the first spell with each friendly SLANN or ORACLE, you can say that it will carry out a celestial conjuration. If you do so, you receive D3 celestial conjuration points but the number of spells which that model can attempt to cast in that phase is reduced by 1.

If you have 6 or more celestial conjuration points at the end of your movement phase, you can summon 1 or more units from the list below to the battlefield and add them to your army. Each unit you summon costs a number of celestial conjuration points as shown on the list, and you can only summon a unit if you have enough celestial conjuration points to pay its cost.

Summoned units must be set up wholly within 12" of a friendly SLANN, friendly ORACLE or friendly SAURUS ASTROLITH BEARER and more than 9" from any enemy units. Subtract the cost of the summoned unit from the number of celestial conjuration points you have immediately after the summoned unit has been set up. Summoned units have the STARBORNE keyword.


Lords of Space and Time

Slann temple-ships are able to transport themselves and Starborne warriors any distance in an instant.

At the end of your movement phase, you can pick 1 friendly STARBORNE unit anywhere on the battlefield to be transported through space and time.

If you do so, remove that unit from the battlefield and then set it up on the battlefield anywhere that is more than 9" from any enemy unit.

Starborne Constellations

The Starborne of different constellations exhibit traits unique to the warriors of their fleet.

If your army is a STARBORNE army, you can give it the DRACOTHION’S TAIL or FANGS OF SOTEK keyword. All STARBORNE units in your army gain that keyword and you can use the extra abilities listed for that Constellation.

Command Traits

Use the command traits table that corresponds to your general’s keyword: SLANN, SAURUS or SKINK. If your general has none of these keywords, it cannot have a command trait.

If the model that summoned the endless spell is removed from play, then the endless spell is removed from play.

Dracothion’s Tail

Whipping across the heavens, Dracothion’s Tail is said to mirror the mood of Azyr itself. The Seraphon warriors of this vast constellation are swift and unpredictable, and when bolstered by the blessings of their mystical Starmasters they strike without warning to bring the vengeance of the heavens down upon their foes.

ABILITIES
Appear on Command: At the will of their Starmasters, the reptilian throngs of Dracothion’s Tail appear suddenly on the battlefield, emerging from beams of starlight to savage their foes.
Instead of deploying a friendly DRACOTHION’S TAIL unit on the battlefield, you can place it to one side and say that it is set up waiting to appear at command as a reserve unit. You can set up 1 reserve unit waiting to appear at command for each friendly DRACOTHION’S TAIL unit you have already set up on the battlefield.

At the end of your movement phase, you can set up one or more of the reserve units waiting to appear at command on the battlefield, more than 9" from any enemy units and wholly within 18" of a friendly DRACOTHION’S TAIL SLANN. Any reserve units waiting to appear at command which are not set up on the battlefield before the start of the fourth battle round are slain.

COMMAND TRAIT
A DRACOTHION’S TAIL SLANN general must have this command trait instead of one listed in Command Traits section.

Ancient Knowledge: The slann of Dracothion’s Tail are amongst the wisest and most revered of all their kind.
This general knows 1 extra spell from the Lore of Celestial Domination. In addition, you can re-roll 1 casting, dispelling or unbinding roll for this general each hero phase.

ARTEFACT OF POWER
The first DRACOTHION’S TAIL HERO to receive an artefact of power must be given the Godbeast Pendant.

Godbeast Pendant: This artefact grants the bearer a small measure of Dracothion’s divine immortality.
The first time the bearer is slain, before removing them from the battlefield, roll a dice. On a 1-3, the bearer is slain. On a 4-6, the bearer is not slain, all wounds allocated to them are healed, and any wounds that currently remain to be allocated to them are negated.

Fangs of Sotek

The Fangs of Sotek strike as swiftly as a streaking meteor. Cohorts of stealthy skirmishers populate their armies, and are masters of the hit-and-run attack; enemies find it impossible to land a blow against the crafty skink warriors, their plans cast into ruin in the moments before a brutal saurus assault crashes home.

ABILITIES
First to Battle: Like the tip of a spear or head of a hurled javelin, the vanguard of the Fangs of Sotek drive forwards with blinding speed to strike at the enemy.
In the first battle round, add 3" to the Move characteristic of FANGS OF SOTEK SKINK units.

COMMAND ABILITY
Parting Shot: The skinks of the Fangs of Sotek excel as skirmishers. Those who attempt to charge them swiftly fall beneath a hail of javelins and poisoned blowdarts.
You can use this command ability when an enemy unit ends a charge move within 3" of a friendly FANGS OF SOTEK unit chosen from the Skinks or Chameleon Skinks warscroll that is wholly within 18" of a friendly FANGS OF SOTEK HERO. If you do so, that unit can shoot. After you have resolved all of that unit’s shooting attacks, roll a dice. On a 4+, that unit must retreat.
COMMAND TRAIT
A FANGS OF SOTEK SAURUS general must have this command trait instead of one listed in Command Traits section.

Old and Grizzled: Saurus once formed the mainstay of Fangs of Sotek armies, and their commanders have not forgotten the many ways to hunt down the foe.
If this general is part of your army and on the battlefield at the start of your hero phase, roll a dice. On a 3+, you receive 1 extra command point.

ARTEFACT OF POWER
The first FANGS OF SOTEK HERO to receive an artefact of power must be given the Serpent God Dagger.

Serpent God Dagger: This curved blade secretes a deadly and hideously painful venom.
Pick 1 of the bearer’s melee weapons. At the end of any phase, if any wounds inflicted by that weapon in that phase were allocated to an enemy model and not negated, and that enemy model has not been slain, roll a dice. On a 5+, that enemy model is slain.

Koatl’s Claw

Butchery and brutality are the hallmarks of Koatl’s Claw. The sheer savagery of Ghur has buried its way into the hearts of these Coalesced, rendering them furious and unsubtle fighters. Their saurian legions fight without heed for their own survival, a tide of thick scale and sharp fangs come to obliterate all before them.

ABILITIES
Savagery Incarnate: The saurus of Koatl’s Claw are renowned as being the most primordially vicious of their kind.
Add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by friendly KOATL’S CLAW SAURUS units that made a charge move in the same turn.

COMMAND ABILITY
Controlled Fury: The saurus lords of Koatl’s Claw are capable of unleashing the ravening fury of their kin.
You can use this command ability at the start of the combat phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly KOATL’S CLAW SAURUS unit wholly within 24" of a friendly KOATL’S CLAW SAURUS HERO. That unit counts as having made a charge move in that turn for the purposes of the Savagery Incarnate ability.

COMMAND TRAIT
A KOATL’S CLAW SAURUS general must have this command trait instead of one listed in Command Traits section.

Dominant Predator: Even the most frenzied saurus of Koatl’s Claw pay respect to this mighty alpha-lizard.
Roll a dice each time this general is used to issue a command to a friendly KOATL’S CLAW SAURUS unit. On a 4+, you receive 1 extra command point.

ARTEFACT OF POWER
The first KOATL’S CLAW HERO to receive an artefact of power must be given the Eviscerating Blade.

Eviscerating Blade: The serrated teeth of this heavy blade can tear through flesh with sickening ease, ripping apart organs and severing limbs in gory displays of primeval violence.
Pick 1 of the bearer’s melee weapons. If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with that weapon is 6, that attack inflicts 2 mortal wounds on the target in addition to any normal damage.

The Thunder Lizard

Guardians of the Old Ones’ most precious treasures, the Thunder Lizard brook no intruders into their domains. Their golden temple-cities rise high amidst the most magically volatile wildlands of the Mortal Realms, and their armies are filled with technological relics of a lost age and the most fearsome beasts of war imaginable.

ABILITIES
Mighty Beasts of War: The spawning pools of the Thunder Lizard give rise to bioengineered monsters of terrible power.
Add 2 to the Wounds characteristic of THUNDER LIZARD MONSTERS.

COMMAND ABILITY
Trove of Old One Technology: The golden vaults of the Thunder Lizard contain some of the most powerful known artefacts of the Old Ones.
You can use this command ability at the end of your shooting phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly THUNDER LIZARD BASTILADON, or friendly THUNDER LIZARD ENGINE OF THE GODS, that is wholly within 18" of a friendly THUNDER LIZARD HERO. If that unit is a BASTILADON, it can shoot with its Solar Engine even if it has already done so in that phase. If that unit is an ENGINE OF THE GODS, you can make a cosmic engine roll for it even if you have already done so in that phase. A unit cannot benefit from this command ability more than once per phase.
COMMAND TRAIT
A THUNDER LIZARD general with a MONSTER mount must have this command trait instead of one listed in Command Traits section.

Prime Warbeast: This beast is particularly vicious.
Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of the weapons used by this general’s mount.

ARTEFACT OF POWER
The first THUNDER LIZARD HERO to receive an artefact of power must be given the Fusil of Conflagration.

Fusil of Conflagration: This ancient relic can unleash powerful, if unpredictable, blasts of cosmic energy.
In your shooting phase, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 12" of the bearer and visible to them and roll a dice. On a 1, this artefact cannot be used again for the rest of the battle. On a 2-3, nothing happens. On a 4-5 that enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. On a 6, that enemy unit suffers D6 mortal wounds.

Battleplans

Battleplan

The Tables Turned

The Seraphon are an enigmatic force in the Mortal Realms, and their actions are almost impossible to predict. Only the slann can truly know the impact of their deeds, and the reasons for which their reptilian hosts make war. Yet though they can fulfil the role of destroyer, the Seraphon are also guardians. When those who are deemed to have a key role to play in the Great Plan are imperilled, the armies of the constellations will go to any lengths to see them preserved. After the threat has passed and the enemy lies dead the Seraphon hosts disappear as swiftly as they came, leaving those they have rescued to ponder the meaning of the strange intervention.

This battleplan allows you to recreate such an intervention by a Starborne starhost, though it can easily be modified to represent an ambush by a Coalesced temple-host. In flashes of light the Seraphon arrive amidst even the deadliest terrain, navigating the treacherous lands as they set themselves upon the foe. They must destroy their enemy swiftly and without mercy, before those they have come to safeguard can be laid low.

THE ARMIES
Each player picks an army as described in the core rules. One player is the Seraphon player. Their opponent is the Tyrant. The Seraphon player must use a Starborne Seraphon army.

The Seraphon army must include the maximum number of allied units possible. This means that for every 4 units in the Seraphon army, 1 must be an allied unit. All of the allied units must belong to the same faction.

SET-UP
Only the allied units from the Seraphon player’s army are set up on the battlefield at the start of the battle. The remaining units in the Seraphon army are set up off the battlefield as reserve units; they will be set up during the battle using the Explosive Arrival rule below. The Tyrant sets up their army second, anywhere in their territory more than 12" from Seraphon territory. The territories are shown on the map.

FIRST TURN
In this battle, the Tyrant takes the first turn in the first battle round.

EXPLOSIVE ARRIVAL
The explosive arrival of the Seraphon unleashes a shock wave of celestial magic inimical to their foes.
At the end of the Seraphon player’s first movement phase, they set up all of the non-allied units from their army anywhere on the battlefield more than 9" from any enemy units. After each of these units is set up, roll a dice for each Tyrant unit that is within 12" of it. On a 5+, that Tyrant unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

YAWNING CHASMS
Great chasms open up across the battlefield as the land is rent asunder in the aftermath of the Seraphon’s arrival.
After the Seraphon player’s first movement phase, the following rules apply to both players for the rest of the battle.
  • After a friendly unit that cannot fly makes a run or charge move, roll a dice. On a 1, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. You can re-roll the dice if the unit is a HERO or MONSTER.
  • When a friendly MONSTER finishes a charge move, after you have rolled to see if it suffers any mortal wounds, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 1" of it that cannot fly and roll a dice. On a 2+, that enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.
  • At the end of the combat phase, roll a dice for each unit that fought during the phase and cannot fly. On a 1, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. You can re-roll the dice if the unit is a HERO or MONSTER.

GLORIOUS VICTORY
The battle lasts for 5 battle rounds. At the end of the battle, if one player has 1-9 more victory points than their opponent, they win a minor victory. If one player has 10 or more victory points than their opponent, they win a major victory. Any other result is a draw.

VICTORY POINTS
At the end of each turn, each player scores 1 victory point for each enemy unit that was destroyed that turn. Additional victory points are scored as follows:
  • +1 victory point is scored if the starting combined Wounds characteristic of that unit was 20 or more, +2 victory points are scored if it was 30 or more, and so on.
  • +1 victory point is scored if that unit was a MONSTER.
  • +1 victory point is scored if that unit was a HERO.
  • +3 victory points are scored if that unit was a general.


Path to Glory

Path to Glory campaigns centre around collecting and fighting battles with a warband in the Age of Sigmar. Champions fight each other and gather followers to join them in their quest for glory, taking advantage of this age of unending battle to win glory and renown.

In order to play Path to Glory campaigns you have to follow rules described here.

These Path to Glory campaign rules are not compatible with the latest version of the Path to Glory rules from the Core Book. You can still use them to run a ‘classic’ Path to Glory campaign, or you can use the rules from the Core Book to run a ‘modern’ Path to Glory campaign.

Seraphon Warband Tables

Use the following tables to determine the champion that leads your warband, the followers that make up the units which fight at their side, and the rewards they can receive after battle.

Followers Rewards Table

Do not roll for Seraphon followers rewards. Instead, the reward is determined by the type of follower.

Ferocity Unbound: The predatory instincts of these saurus have been driven to new heights.
Saurus Retinues only. Improve the Rend characteristic of Jaws weapons used by this unit by 1.
The Trap is Sprung: At an unspoken command from their leader, these skinks attack from carefully prepared ambush sites, swiftly overwhelming their chosen prey.

Beastmasters: The skink handlers of these beasts know precisely how to get the best from them in battle.
MONSTERS and HUNTING PACKS only. In your hero phase, declare if this unit will be swift or savage. If you choose swift, until your next hero phase, it can run and still shoot and/or charge in the same turn. If you choose savage, until your next hero phase, add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of its melee weapons.

PATH TO GLORY

This section contains rules for using a Seraphon army on a Path to Glory campaign. It includes additional rules, quests, veteran abilities and unique territories that can only be used by a Seraphon army.

Warriors of Stars and Realms

When you first pick your Path to Glory army, you must decide if it will be Starborne or Coalesced and record which it is on your roster along with its subfaction (if it has one).

If you choose a Coalesced army, then the Path to Glory rules are used more or less unchanged, except for the addition of the new quests, veteran abilities and territories described below. If you choose a Starborne army, then you must use the new Starborne rules that follow, in addition to the new quests, veteran abilities and territories described below.

Starborne Armies

If you have a Starborne Path to Glory army, each standard territory provides you with a number of Astromatrix Arcane points in addition to its effect, as shown on the table below. If a territory is upgraded, add 1 to the number of Astromatrix Arcane points it provides. You can use these points to add Seraphon units to your army, as described below.

ASTROMATRIX TABLE
1 Astromatrix point2 Astromatrix point3 Astromatrix point
Old Keep
Wild Lands
Forgotten Mine
Small Settlement
Borderlands
Large Settlement
Sacred Site
Ancient Roads
Wellspring
Realmstone Reserve
Ruins of Myth
Arcane Waypoint
Faction Territories: See the Seraphon Faction Territories table.
Upgraded Territories: +1 Astromatrix point.

The favoured targets of the Starborne are those places where magical energy pools or where the ley lines of arcane power that cross the aetheric void join. By taking control and imposing stringent order upon these magical wellsprings, the Starborne stabilise the land against the powers of Chaos, and they create a reservoir of each realm’s magical essence they can tap into. The Seraphons network of magical power is known by a variety of names, but the most common is the Astromatrix.

SERAPHON units that do not have the HERO keyword are not recorded on your Order of Battle for a Starborne Path to Glory army. Instead, when you pick your army for a battle, you can include up to 1 SERAPHON unit that does not have the HERO keyword for each Astromatrix point you have. A Behemoth or a unit that is reinforced counts as 2 units instead of 1 towards this limit, and a unit that is reinforced twice counts as 3 units instead of 1.

After picking the units for your army, roll a dice for each Astromatrix point that was not used to allow you to include a unit in your army. For each 4+, you can give 1 eligible unit in your army a veteran ability. The veteran ability can be used by the unit only in that battle.

You must still pay the points cost of the unit to include it in your army. Summoned units added to your army after the battle starts can be added freely and do not count against the Astromatrix limit for your army.

Seraphon Quests

If your army is a Seraphon army, you can pick the following quest for your Path to Glory roster.

QUEST

STAR-FATED BEASTS

Some of the reptilian mounts used by the Seraphon possess quirks and powers that set them apart from their spawn-kin.
Pick 1 HERO with the STEGADON, CARNOSAUR or TROGLODON keyword from your army that does not already have a mount trait, and pick 1 mount trait they are allowed to take. Write down that mount trait in your quest log.

At the end of a Path to Glory battle, you complete this quest if that unit destroyed any enemy unit during the battle.

When you complete this quest, you can add the mount trait you picked to your vault. When you do so, make a note of which unit it applies to. If that unit is ever removed from your order of battle, remove the corresponding mount trait trom your vault.

Veteran Abilities

Each time a SERAPHON unit on your Path to Glory roster gains a veteran ability, you can pick 1 of the veteran abilities from the table below instead of the table found in the core rules.

Seraphon Veteran Abilities
Ferocity Unbound: The predatory instincts of these saurus warriors have been driven to new heights by the blood they have spilt in countless battles.
SAURUS units only. This unit can use this veteran ability once per battle when it is picked to fight in a combat phase. Increase the Rend characteristic of Powerful Jaws weapons used by that unit by 1 until the end of that phase.
The Trap is Sprung: At an unspoken command from their leader, these skinks carry out a carefully prepared ambush, swiftly overwhelming their chosen prey.
SKINK units only. Once per battle, in your hero phase, pick 1 enemy unit that is visible to the Skink Alpha from this unit. Until your next hero phase, add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by this unit that target that unit.

‘The Trap is Sprung’ can only be used by a SKINK unit that has a champion.

Territories

When making an exploration roll, if the roll is 61-66, that roll will correspond to a territory on the table below. Alternatively, you can pick 1 result from the Territories table in the core rules that corresponds to a roll of 21-42.

Some of these territories allow you to send a unit to them. A unit cannot be sent to more than 1 territory in each aftermath sequence, and any such units cannot be picked for the Borderlands territory in the core rules.

SERAPHON FACTION TERRITORIES (D66)
61-63 STORMVAULT
Your forces have secured one of the mysterious Stormvaults revealed during the Necroquake.
You can never have more than 1 territory of this type. This territory has no effect until it is upgraded.

[Upgrade 15GP] Vault opened: If you have a Starborne army, this territory provides you with 5 Astromatrix points. If you have a Coalesced army, in step 3 of the aftermath sequence, you can pick 1 HERO on your order of battle to be sent to this territory to delve into the Stormvault. If you do so, roll a dice. On a 1-2, you must make an injury roll for that HERO. On a 3-4, nothing happens. On a 5, you must make an injury roll for that HERO, and you can add an artefact of power to your vault. On a 6, you can add an artefact of power to your vault.

64-66 RUINED TEMPLE-CITY
You have reclaimed the ruins of a once mighty temple-city that has either been overrun and destroyed by your enemies or that crashed down from the stars as the result of a celestial cataclysm.
If you have a Starborne army, this territory provides you with 3 Astromatrix points. If you have a Coalesced army, the cost of upgrading your Stronghold is reduced by 10 glory points.

[Upgrade 20GP] Secondary Reserves: In each aftermath sequence, you can re-roll 1 injury roll or casualty roll without spending a glory point.

Heroic Upgrades

During your Path to Glory campaign, you may be able to pick heroic upgrades for your HEROES. A heroic upgrade replaces the warscroll for a HERO with another, more powerful one and represents them becoming a mighty champion in your army.

You can pick a heroic upgrade in step 7 of the aftermath sequence. To do so, consult the table below and pick 1 of the eligible options. Each heroic upgrade lists the warscroll the HERO will be upgraded to, which warscroll is required, the amount of renown points that HERO must have and the amount of glory points you must spend. Once you have picked a heroic upgrade, replace your HERO’s warscroll on your order of battle with the new one chosen. You can pick only 1 heroic upgrade in each aftermath sequence.

If the new warscroll is a type that is limited on your order of battle - for example, if it is a MONSTER - you will need to have increased your order of battle limits to accommodate it before it can be upgraded.

CORE ENHANCEMENTS
When you pick a heroic upgrade for a HERO, they keep their renown points and any core enhancements that they are still eligible for. If your HERO has any core enhancements that they are no longer eligible for, they lose those core enhancements. If this enables you to pick a new core enhancement for your order of battle, you can do so.


MATCHED PLAY

If the battlepack you are using says that you must pick grand strategies and battle tactics for your army, you can pick from the following lists as well as those found in the battlepack you are using.

Grand Strategies

After you have picked your army, you can pick 1 of the grand strategies from the list below and record it on your army roster.

MASTERS OF ORDER
Seraphon army only.

Continuous Expansion: The Coalesced are continuously expanding their dominion over the Mortal Realms in order to wrest control from the Chaos Gods and establish the rule of Order.
Coalesced army only. When the battle ends, you complete this objective if you have a least 1 friendly unit wholly within each large quarter of the battlefield.
The Astromatrix: The favoured targets of the Seraphon are those places where magical energy pools, or where the ley lines of arcane power that span the Aetheric Void cross.
Starborne army only. An imaginary ley line 1mm wide runs from the each corner of the battlefield to the diagonally opposite corner of the battlefield. When the battle ends, you complete this objective if a ley line does not pass over any enemy models with the WIZARD keyword, and at least 1 ley line passes over a friendly model with the WIZARD keyword.

Battle Tactics

At the start of your hero phase, you can pick 1 battle tactic from the list below. You must reveal your choice to your opponent, and if your battle tactic instructs you to pick something, you must tell your opponent what you pick. You have until the end of that turn to complete the battle tactic. You cannot pick the same battle tactic more than once per battle.

MARCH OF THE COSMIC HOST
Seraphon army only.

Might of the Starborne: The sudden appearance of powerful formations of Starborne warriors can break the spirit of even the stoutest enemy.
Pick 1 objective on the battlefield. You complete this battle tactic if you summon a friendly unit that has a CCP cost of 20 or more during the turn, and that unit is wholly within 12" of the objective you picked.
Stampede of Scales: The armies of the Coalesced are often spearheaded by large formations of monstrous reptiles who surge ahead of the army striking terror into the hearts of the foe.
Pick 3 different friendly MONSTERS. You complete this battle tactic if all of the units you picked run in the following movement phase and finish that run within 6" of each other and wholly within enemy territory.

Core Battalions

You can include any of the following core battalions in a Seraphon army if the battlepack you are using says that you can use core battalions.

THUNDERQUAKE

UNIT ICONS
(Mandatory/Optional)
ENGINE OF THE GODS or STEGADON WITH SKINK CHIEF.
BASTILADON or STEGADON.
KROXIGOR unit.
RAZORDONS or SALAMANDERS unit.
BATTALION ABILITY ICONS

Expert: Once per battle, 1 unit from this battalion can receive the All-out Attack or All-out Defence command without the command being issued and without a command point being spent.
Magnificent: When you pick enhancements for your army (see 27.3), you can pick 1 extra enhancement.
Slayers: Once per battle, 1 unit from this battalion can receive the All-out Attack or Unleash Hell command without the command being issued and without a command point being spent.
Strategists: Once per battle, when you receive command points at the start of your hero phase, you can receive 1 extra command point.
Swift: Once per battle, 1 unit from this battalion can receive the At the Double or Forward to Victory command without the command being issued and without a command point being spent.

OPEN PLAY

If the players are using the Open War battlepack from the Warhammer Age ofSigmar Core Book, you can use the following twists and ruses as well as those found in the battlepack.

Seraphon Twist

If the roll on the Twist table is a 1, roll again on the following Twist table instead of using No Twist. Roll on the Coalesced table if you have a Coalesced army or the Starborne table if you have a Starborne army. If both players have a Twist table that is used on a roll of 1, then both players roll on their Twist tables, and both twists are used for the battle.

COALESCED TWIST TABLE
D6Twist
1-3Lost in Contemplation: The vast intellect of the Starmasters is distracted from the battlefield by cosmic contemplations and the deduction of esoteric celestial formulae.
This twist has no effect on the battle.
4-6Monstrous Denizen: Thick jungles spread around the landed temple-cities of the Coalesced, which quickly become infested with all manner of monstrous beasts.
After the battlefield has been set up but before territories have been assigned, the players roll off. The winner can set up 1 MONSTER anywhere on the battlefield (use a suitable model that is not part of either army, if available). This model is referred to as a monstrous denizen. At the start of each battle round, before determining priority, the players roll off. In that battle round, the winner of the roll-off treats the monstrous denizen as a unit in their army, and their opponent treats it as an enemy unit. The monstrous denizen’s commanding player can choose to attack it, but if they do, until the end of the battle round, they treat it as an enemy unit, and their opponent treats it as a unit in their own army. The monstrous denizen cannot attack itself.

STARBORNE TWIST TABLE
D6Twist
1-3Lost in Contemplation: The vast intellect of the Starmasters is distracted from the battlefield by cosmic contemplations and the deduction of esoteric celestial formulae.
This twist has no effect on the battle.
4-6The Astromatrix: The favoured targets of the Seraphon are those places where magical energy pools or where the ley lines of arcane power that cross the aetheric void join.
If there are 2 or more objectives on the battlefield, an imaginary ley line 1mm wide runs from the centre of each objective to the centre of each other objective. In any other circumstances, an imaginary ley line 1mm wide runs from the each corner of the battlefield to the diagonally opposite corner of the battlefield. You can add 1 to casting, dispelling and unbinding rolls for any WIZARD that is passed over by a ley line.

Seraphon Ruse

When you generate your ruse, you can use the following ruse instead of the one you generate on the Ruse table (choose which to use after you have made your roll on the Ruse table). You can pick the Primal Vistas ruse if you have a Coalesced army or the Celestial Reinforcement ruse if you have a Starborne army.

Primal Vistas: The energy of the Astromatrix reshapes the lands it passes across.
After deployment, if there is a friendly SLANN, STARSEER or ORACLE on the battlefield, you can pick 1 terrain feature that is not a faction terrain feature. The Primeval Domain battle trait applies to that terrain feature, even if it is not in your territory.

Celestial Reinforcement: The concentrated Azyrite energies of an Eternal Starhost act as a beacon, allowing its master to summon further warriors from their temple-fleet with incredible ease.
Once per battle, at the start of your hero phase, if there is a friendly SLANN, STARSEER or ORACLE on the battlefield, you can roll a dice. If the roll is less than or equal to the number of the current battle round, you receive a number of celestial conjuration points equal to the roll.
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.

The SLANN keyword is used in the following Seraphon warscrolls:

Leader
13.1.2 Combat Attacks
When a friendly unit fights, you must make combat attacks with all of the melee weapons the models in the unit are armed with that they are allowed to use (including melee weapons used by the unit’s mounts, if there are any).

The target of a combat attack must be within a number of inches of the attacking model equal to the Range characteristic of the weapon being used to make the attack (the target does not have to be visible).
8.3 Run
When you pick a unit to run, you must make a run roll for the unit by rolling a dice. Add the run roll to the Move characteristic of all models in the unit until the end of that phase. You can then move each model in that unit a distance in inches equal to or less than their modified Move characteristic. No part of a run can be within 3" of an enemy unit. You cannot shoot or attempt a charge later in the turn with a unit that has run. Units cannot run if they are within 3" of an enemy unit.
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 SERAPHON and WIZARD keywords are used in the following Seraphon warscrolls:

Leader, Behemoth
Leader
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.
19.3.2 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.
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.
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.
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).
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.

The SAURUS keyword is used in the following Seraphon warscrolls:

27.3.2 Command Traits
Each time you take a command trait enhancement, you can pick 1 command trait and give it to your general. You can never pick more than 1 command trait for your army, and command traits can only be given to a general that is a HERO.

The SKINK keyword is used in the following Seraphon warscrolls:

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.

The WIZARD keyword is used in the following Seraphon warscrolls:

Leader, Behemoth
Leader
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).
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.
14.1 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.
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.
27.3.3 Artefacts of Power
Each time you take an artefact of power enhancement, you can pick 1 artefact of power and give it to a HERO in your army. A HERO cannot have more than 1 artefact of power. An army cannot include duplicates of the same artefact of power.

Most rules for artefacts of power refer to the bearer. The bearer is the model to which an artefact of power has been given (see section 27.5.2 for some examples).
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.

The STEGADON keyword is used in the following Seraphon warscrolls:

Leader, Behemoth
Artillery, Leader, Behemoth
Behemoth

The CARNOSAUR keyword is used in the following Seraphon warscrolls:

Leader, Behemoth

The TROGLODON keyword is used in the following Seraphon warscrolls:

Leader, Behemoth
22.3.1 Mounts, Companions and Crew
Sometimes the description on a warscroll will say whether the models in the unit have mounts, companions or a crew. When a model attacks, its mount, companions and crew attack too, and when the model is removed from play, its mount, companions and crew are removed too. For rules purposes, companions and crew are treated in the same manner as mounts.
3.1 Reserve Units and Summoned Units
Sometimes a rule will allow you to set up a unit in a location other than the battlefield as a reserve unit. A unit that is added to your army once the battle is underway is called a summoned unit.

When you set up a reserve unit, either during deployment or once the battle is underway, you must tell your opponent that the unit is in reserve and keep it to one side instead of placing it on the battlefield. At the start of the fourth battle round, units that are still in reserve are destroyed. Units cannot cast spells or use abilities while they are in reserve unless the spell or ability specifically says it can be used by reserve units.

Reserve units are picked as part of your army before the battle begins, while summoned units are units added to your army once the battle is underway. Models that have been removed from play can be used as part of a summoned unit.

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.
All-out Defence
With consummate skill, these cunning warriors protect themselves from attack.
You can use this command ability when a friendly unit is picked as the target of an attack in the shooting or combat phase. That unit must receive the command. Add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target that unit until the end of that phase.
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.
At the Double
Eager for battle, the warriors pick up their pace and surge towards the enemy.
You can use this command ability after you declare that a friendly unit will run. That unit must receive the command. The run roll is not made for that unit. Instead, 6" is added to that unit’s Move characteristic in that phase. The unit is still considered to have run.
Forward to Victory
Nothing will stop these ferocious warriors from reaching combat.
You can use this command ability after you make a charge roll for a friendly unit. That unit must receive the command. You can re-roll the charge roll for that unit.
1.5.3 Rolling Off
Sometimes a rule may require the players to roll off. To roll off, each player rolls a dice, and whoever rolls highest wins. If a roll-off is tied, roll off again. You cannot re-roll or modify the dice when you roll off.
