Stormfiends are monstrous fusions of vat-bred Rat Ogors and Skryre contraptions. They are the lumbering shock-troops of the Clans Skryre and can sweep away entire enemy units in a heartbeat with their vicious wonder-weapons.

• Rattachak’s Doom-coven
Models in this unit can issue commands
to their own unit.
Doom flayer Gauntlets: Whirling gyroscopic gears make doomflayer gauntlets especially deadly when the bearer charges at a foe.
Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of Doomflayer Gauntlets if the attacking model made a charge move
in the same turn.
Grinderfist Tunnellers: Grinderfists can be used to create underground tunnels.
If this unit includes any models armed with Grinderfists, instead of setting up this unit on the battlefield, you can place it to one side and say that it is set up underground as a reserve unit
. At the end of your movement phase
, you can set up this unit on the battlefield, more than 9" from all enemy units.
Shock Gauntlets: Sometimes the electrical discharge created by a pair of shock gauntlets creates a series of linked explosions.
If the unmodified hit roll
for an attack made with Shock Gauntlets is 6, that attack scores D6 hits on the target instead of 1. Make a wound roll
and save roll
for each hit.
Warpfire Projectors: These horrific weapons cause the target to be engulfed in searing gouts of warpfire.
Do not use the attack sequence
for an attack made with Warpfire Projectors. Instead, roll a dice for each model in the target unit that is within range. For each 4+, the target suffers 1 mortal wound
Warpstone-laced Armour: Stormfiends armed with doomflayer gauntlets or shock gauntlets are protected by heavy plates of warpstone-laced armour.
A model wearing Warpstone-laced Armour has a Wounds characteristic of 7 instead of 6.
Windlaunchers: The gas clouds unleashed by a windlauncher engulf even the largest enemy formations in choking poisonous fumes.
The target of an attack made with Windlaunchers does not have to be visible to the attacking model.
In addition, add 1 to wound rolls
for attacks made with Windlaunchers if the target unit has 10 or more models.
