Warpfire Thrower

The Warpfire Thrower is a truly horrific and highly unstable weapon that fires jetting sheets of sticky warpstone-infused oils. These ignite upon contact with air and burn furiously through flesh, stone, metal and bone.

DESCRIPTION

A Warpfire Thrower is a single model armed with a Warpfire Thrower and Rusty Knives.

ABILITIES

Warpfire: These horrific weapons engulf the target in searing gouts of warpfire.
Do not use the attack sequence for an attack made with a Warpfire Thrower. Instead, roll a dice for each model in the target unit that is within 8" of the attacking model. For each 4+ the target unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

More-more Warpfire!: A Warpfire Thrower’s crew can disable the weapon’s flow regulator, allowing it to unleash great, uncontrolled gouts of warpfire but at the risk of immolating themselves.
Before you pick the target for this model’s Warpfire Thrower, you can say that the crew are disabling the flow regulator. If you do so, roll 2 dice for each enemy model within 8" of this model instead of 1 dice. However, if you do so, you must roll a dice after the dice have been rolled to see if the Warpfire Thrower inflicts any mortal wounds, and on a 1 or 2 this model is slain.

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.
