Saurus Guard

 • Eternal Temple-host


A unit of Saurus Guard has any number of models, each armed with a Celestite Polearm and Powerful Jaws.

SAURUS GUARD ALPHA: 1 model in this unit can be a Saurus Guard Alpha. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that model’s Celestite Polearm.

STARDRAKE ICON BEARER: 1 in every 5 models in this unit can be a Stardrake Icon Bearer. Subtract 1 from the Bravery characteristic of enemy units while they are within 6" of any friendly Stardrake Icon Bearers.

WARDRUMMER: 1 in every 5 models in this unit can be a Wardrummer. You can re-roll charge rolls for units that include any Wardrummers.


Selfless Protectors: The Saurus Guard stand as a living shield between the slann and their foes.
Roll a dice before you allocate a wound or mortal wound to a friendly SLANN while it is within 3" of any friendly units with this ability. On a 2+, you must allocate that wound or mortal wound to a friendly unit with this ability that is within 3" of that SLANN, instead of to that SLANN.


The SLANN keyword is used in the following Seraphon warscrolls:

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.
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.

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.
