Plague Priest

Plague Priests shriek blasphemous prayers that unleash the dark diseases of the Great Corruptor upon their foes. Those not wasted away or withered into ooze are swiftly slain by blows from the priests’ warpstone-capped staves and smog-belching censers.

BATTALIONS: This warscroll can be used in the following warscroll battalions:
 • Foulrain Congregation

Frenzied Assault: The presence of the enemy drives this crazed warrior into a terrible rage.
Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of this unit’s melee weapons if it made a charge move in the same turn.

Poisonous Fumes: Plague censers emit huge clouds of noxious gas.
Subtract 1 from wound rolls for attacks made with melee weapons that target this unit.

Pestilence-pestilence!: With a warpstone tainted glow, the Plague Priest beseeches the Horned Rat to unleash rampant poxes on the battlefield.
Pestilence-pestilence! is a prayer that has an answer value of 3 and a range of 13". If answered, pick a point on the battlefield within range and visible to the chanter and roll a dice for each unit within 3" of that point. On a 4+, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. If that unit is a CLANS PESTILENS unit, heal D3 wounds allocated to that unit instead.

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.
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).
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.
14.4 Healing Wounds
Some abilities allow you to heal wounds that have been allocated to a model. For each wound that is healed, reduce the number of wounds allocated to the model by 1, to a minimum of 0. You cannot heal wounds on a model that is slain.
20.1 Chanting Prayers
In your hero phase, you can chant prayers with friendly PRIESTS. You cannot chant the same prayer more than once in the same hero phase, even with a different PRIEST. In order to chant a prayer, pick a friendly PRIEST, say which of the prayers that they know will be chanted, and then make a chanting roll by rolling a dice. If the chanting roll is equal to or greater than the answer value of the prayer, the prayer is answered.
