Thanquol is armed with the Staff of the Horned Rat. WIZARD:
This unit can attempt to cast
2 spells in your hero phase
and attempt to unbind
2 spells in the enemy hero phase.
Boneripper is armed with Crushing Blows and four warpfire weapons, which can be any combination of Warpfire Braziers and/or Warpfire Projectors.
Protection of the Horned Rat: An eerie sense of watchfulness surrounds this being, and an unholy aura of warding protects them from harm.
This is unit has a ward
Power Behind the Throne: Thanquol manipulates all around him, letting others think they are in charge when in fact they are only carrying out his wishes.
Once per battle round, this unit can issue the same command
up to 2 times in the same phase. If it does so, each command must be received by a friendly SKAVEN
unit. No command point
is spent the second time this unit issues that command in that phase.
Staff of the Horned Rat: Thanquol can draw on the magical energy stored in his staff to enhance the spells that he casts. Once, he viewed this as the blessings of the Horned One made manifest; now, he sees it simply as cunningly acquired power.
Add the Staff of the Horned Rat value shown on this unit’s damage table
and dispelling rolls
for this unit.
Warp-amulet: Thanquol wears a thrumming green warpstone amulet, the mutating magics of which serve to meld and rapidly heal his or Boneripper’s flesh if either of them is injured.
At the end of the combat phase
, you can heal
D3 wounds allocated to this unit.
Warpfire Braziers: These enormous, fumebelching wrecking balls allow Boneripper to crush the largest foes with ease.
The Attacks characteristic of Warpfire Braziers is equal to double the number of Warpfire Braziers with which this unit is armed.
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 x dice for each model in the target unit that is within range, where x is equal to the number of Warpfire Projectors with which this unit is armed. For each 4+, the target suffers 1 mortal wound
Warpstone Addiction: Thanquol is addicted to warpstone and can consume it in quantities that would kill any other Grey Seer. This serves to supercharge his magics, though not without eroding his sanity and ravaging his scrawny frame.
Once per turn, in your hero phase
, when this unit attempts to cast
a spell, you can say that it will first consume a warpstone token. If you do so, roll 3D6. This roll cannot be re-rolled or modified.
If the 3D6 roll is 13, the spell is successfully cast and cannot be unbound
; however, after the effects of the spell have been resolved, this unit suffers D6 mortal wounds
If the 3D6 roll was not 13, remove 1 dice of your choice and use the remaining 2D6 as the casting roll
Madness: Thanquol twists the perception of a nearby foe so that they lash out at everyone around them - or even attack themselves.
Madness is a spell that has a casting value
of 8 and a range of 3". If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy HERO
within range and visible to the caster and roll a number of dice equal to the combined value of the Attacks characteristics of all melee weapons with which that HERO
is armed. For each 4+, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 3" of that HERO
to suffer 1 mortal wound
(you can pick different units to suffer the mortal wounds if you wish).
