BATTALIONS: This warscroll can be used in the following warscroll battalions:
 • Arkhspark Voltik
 • Rattachak’s Doom-coven

Warp Lightning Blast: A Warp Lightning Cannon fires bolts of pure warp lightning that disintegrate any who are caught by them.
Do not use the attack sequence for an attack made with a Warp Lightning Blast. Instead, roll a dice to determine the power of that attack. Then roll 6 more dice. For each roll that is equal to or greater than the power of that attack the target suffers 1 mortal wound.

More-more Warp Lightning!: A Warlock Engineer can increase the power output of a Warp Lightning Cannon at the risk of harming the weapon and its crew.
Before you roll the dice to determine the power of an attack made with a Warp Lightning Blast, if there is a friendly WARLOCK ENGINEER within 3" of this unit, you can say that the engineer will increase the weapon’s power output. If you do so, roll 12 more dice instead of 6 more dice for that attack. However, for each unmodified roll of 1 on those 12 dice, this unit suffers D3 mortal wounds after the attack has been resolved. The same unit cannot benefit from this ability more than once per phase.

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.
