Ripperdactyl Riders

In a storm of snapping, razor-sharp fangs, Ripperdactyls descend to tear apart their prey. The bloodlust of these creatures can never be sated, for in their bestial hearts lurks an endless desire to kill.

DESCRIPTION

A unit of Ripperdactyl Riders has any number of models, each armed with a Moonstone Warspear.

MOUNT: This unit’s Ripperdactyls attack with their Tearing Jaws.

FLY: This unit can fly.

RIPPERDACTYL RIDER ALPHA: 1 model in this unit can be a Ripperdactyl Rider Alpha. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that model’s Moonstone Warspear.

BLOT TOAD: You receive 1 Blot Toad marker for each RIPPERDACTYL RIDERS unit in your army.

ABILITIES

Toad Rage: The mere scent of a Blot Toad sends Ripperdactyls into a frenzy. It is no coincidence that these diminutive creatures seem to materialise whenever the winged beasts are near.
At the start of the combat phase, you can set up 1 Blot Toad marker next to 1 enemy unit. If you do so, you can re-roll hit rolls for attacks made with Tearing Jaws by friendly RIPPERDACTYL units that are wholly within 6" of that enemy unit. At the end of the combat phase, remove the Blot Toad marker; it cannot be used again in that battle.

Designer’s Note: Blot Toads are not units; they are markers that are used to keep track of which enemy units this ability affects and how many times you can use this ability during a battle.

Voracious Appetite: Ripperdactyls have a constant urge to feed, even in the midst of battle.
If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with Tearing Jaws is 6, that attack scores 2 hits on the target instead of 1. Make a wound and save roll for each hit.

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.

The RIPPERDACTYL RIDERS keyword is used in the following Seraphon warscrolls:

None
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.

Leader
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).

The SKINK keyword is used in the following Seraphon warscrolls:
