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.

DESCRIPTION

A Plague Priest is a single model armed with a Warpstone-tipped Staff and a Plague Censer.

ABILITIES

Plague Prayers: Plague Priests can beseech the Horned Rat to unleash dread maladies on the foe.
Disease-disease!: Disease-disease! is a prayer with an answer value of 3 and a range of 13". If answered, pick 1 enemy unit within range and is visible to the chanter. Roll 1 dice for each model in that unit. For each 6, that unit suffers 1 mortal wound. This prayer has no effect on CLANS PESTILENS units.

Pestilence-pestilence!: Pestilence-pestilence! is a prayer with 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. Roll a dice for each unit within 3" of that point. On a 4+, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. This prayer has no effect on CLANS PESTILENS units.

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

Poisonous Fumes: Plague censers emit huge clouds of noxious gas.
At the end of the combat phase, roll 1 dice for each unit within 3" of any units with this ability. On a 4+ the unit being rolled for suffers 1 mortal wound. On a 6 that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds instead of 1. This ability has no effect on CLANS PESTILENS units.

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.
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.

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).
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.
