DESCRIPTION

A Warp Lightning Cannon is a single model armed with a Warp Lightning Blast and the crew’s Teeth and Knives.

ABILITIES

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; that roll determines the power of that attack. Then roll 6 more dice. The target suffers 1 mortal wound for each of those rolls that is equal to or greater than the power of that attack.

More-more Warp Lightning!: A Warlock Engineer can increase the power output of a Warp Lightning Cannon, but at the risk that it will harm the weapon and its crew.
Before you roll the dice that determines the power of a Warp Lightning Blast for this model, if there is a friendly WARLOCK ENGINEER within 3" of this model 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, after the attack has been resolved, this model suffers D3 mortal wounds for each unmodified roll of 1 on those 12 dice. A single WARLOCK ENGINEER cannot be used to increase the power output of more than one Warp Lightning Blast in the same 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.
