 • Sunclaw Temple-host

DESCRIPTION

A Saurus Oldblood is a single model armed with Fearsome Jaws and one of the following weapon options: Celestite Maul; Celestite Warblade; Celestite Warspear; or Celestite Greatblade.

ABILITIES

Cold Ferocity: Saurus heroes fight with a carefully controlled fury.
If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with a Celestite weapon by this model is 6, that attack scores 2 hits on the target instead of 1. Make a wound and save roll for each hit.

COMMAND ABILITIES

Wrath of the Seraphon: The Oldblood directs nearby saurus to unleash their savage instincts.
You can use this command ability in the combat phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly SAURUS unit wholly within 18" of a friendly model with this command ability. Until the end of that phase, you can add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by that unit. A unit cannot benefit from this command ability more than once per phase.

KEYWORDS

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).
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).
