Stegadon with Skink Chief

A charging Stegadon is nothing less than a living battering ram. Its skink riders wield all manner of deadly weapons, while the crushing bulk and sharpened horns of the Stegadon can smash aside even the most determined defenders.

DESCRIPTION

A Stegadon with Skink Chief is a single model armed with Massive Horns, Grinding Jaws and Crushing Stomps.

CREW: This model has a skink crew that attack with Meteoric Javelins and one of the following weapon options: Skystreak Bow; or Sunfire Throwers. For rules purposes, the crew are treated in the same manner as a mount.

MOUNT: The Stegadon treated as this unit’s mount.

SKINK CHIEF: This model includes 1 Skink Chief armed with a Meteoric Warspear. Any command traits or artefacts of power this model has only affect attacks made by the Skink Chief.

ABILITIES

Armoured Crest: A Stegadon will turn to face a foe head-on if it can, so that its thickly scaled crest can protect it from harm.
At the start of the combat phase, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 3" of this model and that has up to 5 models. If you do so, until the end of that phase, add 1 to save rolls for attacks made by that unit that target this model.

Gout of Sunfire: Sunfire throwers unleash great roiling clouds of cosmic flame.
Do not use the attack sequence for an attack made with Sunfire Throwers. Instead, roll a number of dice equal to the number of models from the target unit within 8" of the attacking model. For each 5+, the target unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

Steadfast Majesty: Stegadons are almost fearless beasts, and their stubborn refusal to back down when faced by even the most fearsome foes inspires great courage in nearby skinks.
You can re-roll battleshock tests for friendly SKINK units while they are wholly within 18" of any friendly STEGADON units.

Unstoppable Stampede: Stegadons are nigh unstoppable as they crash through the midst of battle.
Roll 1 dice for each enemy unit that is within 1" of this model when this model finishes a charge move. On a 3+, that enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

COMMAND ABILITIES

Coordinated Strike: A Skink Chief mounted on a Stegadon is in the perfect position to direct the efforts of those skink warriors and warbeast handlers that are nearby, amplifying their destructive power.
You can this command ability at the start of the combat phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly SKINK unit wholly within 24" of a friendly STEGADON HERO with this command ability. Until the end of that phase, add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of melee weapons used by that SKINK unit. A unit cannot benefit from this command ability more than once per phase.

KEYWORDS
ORDER, SERAPHON, SKINK, HERO, MONSTER, STEGADON
22.3.1 Mounts, Companions and Crew
Sometimes the description on a warscroll will say whether the models in the unit have mounts, companions or a crew. When a model attacks, its mount, companions and crew attack too, and when the model is removed from play, its mount, companions and crew are removed too. For rules purposes, companions and crew are treated in the same manner as mounts.
22.3.1 Mounts, Companions and Crew
Sometimes the description on a warscroll will say whether the models in the unit have mounts, companions or a crew. When a model attacks, its mount, companions and crew attack too, and when the model is removed from play, its mount, companions and crew are removed too. For rules purposes, companions and crew are treated in the same manner as mounts.
27.3.2 Command Traits
Each time you take a command trait enhancement, you can pick 1 command trait and give it to your general. You can never pick more than 1 command trait for your army, and command traits can only be given to a general that is a HERO.
27.3.3 Artefacts of Power
Each time you take an artefact of power enhancement, you can pick 1 artefact of power and give it to a HERO in your army. A HERO cannot have more than 1 artefact of power. An army cannot include duplicates of the same artefact of power.

Most rules for artefacts of power refer to the bearer. The bearer is the model to which an artefact of power has been given (see section 27.5.2 for some examples).
Save Roll
Your opponent rolls a dice, modifying the roll by the attacking weapon’s Rend characteristic. If the roll equals or beats the target unit’s Save characteristic, the target is saved and the attack sequence ends. If not, the attack is successful and you must determine the damage that is inflicted on the target. An unmodified save roll of 1 always fails. A save roll cannot be modified by more than +1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).

Designer’s Note: Save rolls do not always succeed on an unmodified roll of 6, and they can be modified by more than -1.
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.
15.1 Battleshock Tests
You must make a battleshock roll for each friendly unit that has to take a battleshock test. To make a battleshock roll, roll a dice and add the number of models in the unit that were slain in that turn to the roll. If the battleshock roll is greater than the unit’s Bravery characteristic, the battleshock test has been failed. If the test is failed, for each point by which the battleshock roll exceeds the unit’s Bravery characteristic, 1 model in that unit must flee. You decide which models flee. A model that flees is removed from play.

If a slain model is returned to its unit in the same turn that it is slain, it still counts as having been slain in that battle round for the purposes of battleshock tests.

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.
14.5 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.
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).
