Lauka Vai, Mother of Nightmares, is armed with an Askurga Rapier, Gore-drenched Talons and Impaling Tail. WIZARD:
This unit can attempt to cast
in your hero phase
and attempt to unbind
1 spell in the enemy hero phase.
If this unit is included in a Soulblight Gravelords army, it is treated as a general
even if it is not the model picked to be the army’s general.
A Queen Amongst Monsters: The Mother of Nightmares is served by a menagerie of twisted vampires and monstrous undead titans, creatures empowered by her unholy presence.
Once per turn, at the end of the charge phase
, you can pick 1 friendly AVENGORII MONSTER
wholly within 12" of this unit. You can carry out 2 different monstrous rampages
with that MONSTER
in that phase instead of 1.
Nightmare’s Miasma: The strange curse of the Vengorians sees shining blades and hallowed relics crumble and patinate in their presence.
While an enemy unit is within 3" of any friendly units with this ability, worsen the Rend characteristic of that unit’s melee weapons by 1 (to a minimum of ‘-’).
The Hunger: Those who bear the Soulblight curse constantly crave blood and are empowered by feasting upon their foes.
Each time this unit fights, after all of its attacks have been resolved, you can heal
up to a number of wounds allocated to this unit equal to the number of wounds and mortal wounds
caused by those attacks that were allocated to enemy units (to a maximum of 6).
The Queen’s Dictat: Gesturing with her blade, Lauka channels her bestial rage and uses it to mark a foe, suffusing them with an arcane blood-stink that is intoxicating to the beasts of the grave.
The Queen’s Dictat is a spell that has a casting value
of 6 and a range of 24". If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy unit within range and visible to the caster. Until your next hero phase
, friendly AVENGORII MONSTERS
are eligible to fight in the combat phase
if they are within 6" of that enemy unit instead of 3", and they can move an extra 3" when they pile in
