Skaven – Slinktalon
This warscroll does not meet the selection criteria (see Settings tab).
Warscroll Battalion


A Slinktalon is an assassination force of Eshin operatives led by a devious Deathmaster, which closes like a noose of shadow around its victims. Only when they are perfectly poised do the skaven strike as one, unleashing a whirlwind of throwing stars and envenomed blades.
 • 1 Deathmaster
 • 1-4 Gutter Runners units
 • 2-8 Night Runners units

Unit Size: -      Points: 160
Battlefield Role: Warscroll Battalion

Murder-slay, Now-now!: At the Deathmaster's command, the Slinktalon executes its carefully conceived assassination plan.
If the DEATHMASTER in this battalion is hiding in a unit in the same battalion, until the end of the combat phase in which it is set up on the battlefield, add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by friendly CLANS ESHIN units in the same battalion wholly within 13" of that DEATHMASTER.
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.
