Plagueclaw

Rotten wood creaks as the throwing arm of the Plagueclaw is cranked slowly back. Foul plague-slop is loaded into the weapon’s claw, before being launched in a high arc to rain infectious filth down upon the enemy lines.

DESCRIPTION

A Plagueclaw is a single model armed with a Plagueclaw Catapult and Rusty Knives.

ABILITIES

Barrage of Disease: A Plagueclaw hurls great globs of diseased filth at its targets.
A Plagueclaw Catapult can target enemy units that are not visible to the attacking model. In addition, add 1 to hit rolls and increase the Damage characteristic to 2D6 for attacks made with a Plagueclaw Catapult if the target has 10 or more models.

Hideous Death: Those splashed by this weapon’s semi-congealed liquid ammunition die horribly, their skin sloughing off in clumps and their bodies erupting in glistening sores.
Subtract 1 from the Bravery characteristic of a unit targeted by any Plagueclaw Catapults until the end of the turn.

Hit Roll
Roll a dice. If the roll equals or beats the attacking weapon’s To Hit characteristic, the attack scores a hit and you must make a wound roll. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified hit roll of 1 always fails and an unmodified hit roll of 6 always hits. A hit roll cannot be modified by more than +1 or -1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).

Sometimes an ability will allow a single hit roll to score two or more hits. If this is the case, make all of the wound and save rolls for those hits at the same time.
