Chameleon Skinks

Chameleon Skinks stalk their prey with infinite patience. Able to blend perfectly into their environment, these peerless hunters silently creep up on their targets, before unleashing a storm of blowdarts covered in the most potent venoms.

DESCRIPTION

A unit of Chameleon Skinks has any number of models, each armed with a Dartpipe and Celestite Dagger.

ABILITIES

Chameleon Ambush: Chameleon Skinks can blend with their surroundings and go into hiding.
Instead of setting up this unit on the battlefield, you can place it to one side and say that it is hiding as a reserve unit. If you do so, at the end of any of your movement phases, you can set up this unit on the battlefield more than 9" from any enemy units.

If this unit is on the battlefield at the end of your movement phase, you can remove it and say that it is hiding as a reserve unit. You can reveal it as described above at the end of any of your subsequent movement phases.

Any reserve units that are in hiding and not on the battlefield at the start of the fourth battle round are slain.

Perfect Mimicry: A Chameleon Skink lurking amidst dense terrain is nearly impossible to spot.
Models in this unit that are within 1" of a terrain feature have a ward of 4+.

Star-venom: The darts used by Chameleon Skinks are coated in deadly toxins.
If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with a Dartpipe is 6, that attack inflicts 1 mortal wound on the target and the attack sequence ends (do not make a wound or save roll).

KEYWORDS
ORDER, SERAPHON, SKINK, CHAMELEON SKINKS
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.
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.
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.
14.5 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.
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).
