Sometimes they even survive the experience.Hidden Weapon Team: Clans Skryre weapon teams often lurk unseen amidst large formations of Stormvermin and Clanrats, revealing themselves once they are close enough to use their weapons.
Before you determine the Attacks characteristic of Whirling Blades, you can say that the crew has kicked the generator into overdrive. If you do so, roll 2D6 to determine the Attacks characteristic for that attack instead of D6. However, if you roll either a double or a 7, this unit is destroyed after all of its attacks have been resolved.

unit that has 10 or more models and is already part of your army to be the unit in which this unit is hiding. Record this information on a separate piece of paper. Do not set up this unit until it is revealed as described next. You can hide up to 1 WARPFIRE THROWER

unit for every 10 models in that CLANRATS
unit. Hidden Weapon Team units are destroyed if the unit in which they are hiding is destroyed before they are revealed.
