for an attack made with a Daemonbound Steel or Daemonbound War-flail is 6, that attack inflicts 1 mortal wound
on the target in addition to any normal damage.
Warlord’s Retinue: Once a warrior of the Dark Gods has earned their favour, others will flock to their banner hoping to gain glory for themselves.
Before you allocate a wound
or mortal wound
to this unit, or instead of making a ward roll
for a wound or mortal wound that would be allocated to this unit, if this unit is within 3" of its retinue, you can roll a dice. On a 1-2, that wound or mortal wound is allocated to this unit as normal. On a 3+, that wound or mortal wound is allocated to this unit’s retinue instead.
Glory in Battle: Under the command of their warlord, the warriors sworn to them waste no time is laying the enemy low.
After this unit has fought in the combat phase
for the first time, if its retinue has not yet fought in that combat phase, is within 3" of an enemy unit and is wholly within 12" of this unit, this unit’s retinue can fight immediately.
