Saurus Scar-Veteran on Carnosaur

Scar-Veterans who have earned the right to ride a Carnosaur into battle are amongst the most ferocious of all their ilk. Such is the combined power of saurus and warbeast that they are capable of collapsing an entire enemy flank by themselves.

DESCRIPTION

A Saurus Scar-Veteran on Carnosaur is a single model armed with one of the following weapon options: Celestite Warblade; Celestite Warspear; or Celestite Greatblade.

MOUNT: This model’s Carnosaur attacks with its Clawed Forelimbs and Massive Jaws.

ABILITIES

Blood Frenzy: A Carnosaur that tastes flesh in the midst of battle becomes a rampaging force of destruction.
If any enemy models are slain by wounds inflicted by this model’s attacks, for the rest of the battle this model can run and still charge in the same turn.

Celestite Warspear: A warspear is especially deadly when used by cavalry on the charge.
Add 1 to the Damage characteristic of this model’s Celestite Warspear if this model made a charge move in the same turn.

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.

Pinned Down: Carnosaurs tackle prey by pinning them in place with their powerful forelimbs and then tearing into them with their massive jaws.
Add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made with Massive Jaws if the target has a Wounds characteristic of 7 or less.

Terror: This terrifying monstrosity strikes fear into the hearts of its foes.
Subtract 1 from the Bravery characteristic of enemy units while they are within 3" of any friendly units with this ability.

COMMAND ABILITIES

Saurian Savagery: The Scar-Veteran looses an ear-splitting roar that drives nearby saurus into a killing frenzy.
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, if the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with a melee weapon by that friendly SAURUS unit is 6, that attack scores 2 hits on the target instead of 1. Make a wound and save roll for each hit. A unit cannot benefit from this command ability more than once per phase.

KEYWORDS
ORDER, SERAPHON, SAURUS, CARNOSAUR, MONSTER, HERO, SCAR-VETERAN
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.
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.
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).

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).
