This warscroll does not meet the selection criteria (see Settings tab).


Amongst the most deranged inventions of the Clans Skryre, the Doomwheel is a rumbling war engine that crushes enemies to a bloody paste while spitting bolts of warp lightning into their midst.

A Doomwheel is a single model armed with Warp Bolts, a Grinding Wheel and its crew’s Teeth and Knives.


Rolling Doom: A Doomwheel will mercilessly crush anything in its path.
When this model makes a normal move, it can pass across models with a Wounds characteristic of 3 or less in the same manner as a model that can fly. In addition, after this model has made a normal move or a charge move, roll a dice for each unit that has any models it passed across, and each other unit that is within 1" of this model at the end of the move. On a 2+ that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

More-more Speed!: The Warlock Engineer that pilots a Doomwheel can goad the rats that propel it in order to make it move faster, but at the risk that they will turn and attack their tormentor.
When this model makes a normal move, you can re-roll the 4D6 roll that determines its Move characteristic. However, if you do so and the new roll includes any dice with an unmodified roll of 1, then your opponent carries out that normal move for that model instead of you.

More-more Warp Bolts!: A daring or foolhardy engineer pilot can overload their Doomwheel’s warp lightning generator.
Before you determine the Attacks characteristic for this model’s Warp Bolts attack, you can say that the engineer is overcharging the warp lightning generator. If you do so, the Attacks characteristic for that attack is 2D6 instead of D6. However, if you do so and you roll a double, this model suffers 2D6 mortal wounds after all of the attacks have been resolved.


The WAR MACHINE keyword is used in the following Skaven warscrolls:

Leader, Behemoth
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.

The CLANS SKRYRE keyword is used in the following Skaven warscrolls:

8.1 Normal Move
When you pick a unit to make a normal move, you can move each model in that unit a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move characteristic shown on the unit’s warscroll. Units cannot move within 3" of enemy units when making a normal move.
9.4 Flying
If the warscroll used by a model says that it can fly, you can ignore other models and terrain features when you trace the path of its move across the battlefield (it flies over them). In addition, when a model that can fly starts or finishes a move on a terrain feature, instead of tracing its move across the battlefield, you can trace it ‘through the air’, as shown in the diagram below.

A flying model cannot finish a move on top of another model or finish a normal move, run or retreat within 3" of an enemy unit.
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.
