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 range. For each 4+, the target 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 at the risk of immolating themselves.Hidden Weapon Team: Clans Skryre weapon teams often lurk unseen amidst large formations of Stormvermin and Clanrats, revealing themselves once they are close enough to use their weapons.

unit for every 10 models in that CLANRATS
unit. Hidden Weapon Team units are destroyed if the unit in which they are hiding is destroyed before they are revealed.
