This warscroll can be used in the following warscroll battalions:
A unit of Grave Guard has any number of models. The unit is armed with 1 of the following weapon options: Wight Blade and Crypt Shield; or Great Wight Blade.
1 model in this unit can be a Seneschal. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that model’s Wight Blade or Great Wight Blade.
1 in every 10 models in this unit can be a Standard Bearer. You can re-roll rolls of 1 for the Deathless Minions
battle trait for this unit while it has any Standard Bearers.
1 in every 10 models in this unit can be a Hornblower. While this unit has any Hornblowers, charge rolls
for this unit of less than 6 are treated as being 6.
Cursed Weapons: The blades wielded by the Grave Guard carry dire curses that can sever the souls from the bodies of those they touch.
If the unmodified wound roll
for an attack made with a melee weapon
by this unit is 6, the target suffers 1 mortal wound
in addition to any normal damage.
Crypt Shields: Though the shields of the Grave Guard appear worn and tattered, the ancient magics bound into them are capable of resisting the more fearsome blows.
Add 1 to save rolls
for attacks that target a unit armed with Wight Blades and Crypt Shields.
