Nagash, Supreme Lord of the Undead

Nagash is the Great Necromancer, Supreme Lord of the Undead and master of all that passes beyond the mortal coil. He is nothing less than an evil-hearted god, and those who earn his displeasure are soon turned to dust upon the wind.

Battlefield Role: Leader, Behemoth
Base size: 130mm
Notes: Single, Unique

Nagash is armed with Alakanash, Zefet-nebtar and Gaze of Nagash.

WIZARD: This unit can attempt to cast 3 spells in your hero phase and attempt to unbind 3 spells in the enemy hero phase. If this unit is part of a Nighthaunt, Flesh-eater Courts, Ossiarch Bonereapers or Soulblight Gravelords army, it knows all of the spells from the spell lores in that faction’s allegiance abilities in addition to the other spells it knows.

WARMASTER: This unit can be included in a Nighthaunt, Flesh-eater Courts, Ossiarch Bonereapers or Soulblight Gravelords army. If it is, it is treated as a general even if it is not the model picked to be the army’s general. In addition, you can still use the army’s allegiance abilities even though this unit is not from the army’s faction; however, this unit does not benefit from them.

FLY: This unit can fly.

COMPANION: This unit is accompanied by a host of spirits armed with Spectral Claws and Daggers.

Alakanash, the Staff of Power: This staff is capped with gems of purest Shyishan realmstone.
Add the Staff of Power value shown on this unit’s damage table to casting, dispelling and unbinding rolls for this unit. In addition, this unit can attempt to cast Arcane Bolt any number of times in the same hero phase, even if another WIZARD has already attempted to cast the spell in that phase.

The Nine Books of Nagash: Nagash has committed to memory much of his vast library but carries nine of the most potent tomes with him at all times.
The Nine Books of Nagash allow this unit to cast extra spells in your hero phase and unbind extra spells in the enemy hero phase. The number of extra spells this unit can attempt to cast or unbind is shown on this unit’s damage table.

Invocation of Nagash: With but a thought, Nagash can call forth fresh minions to assail his foes.
At the start of your hero phase, if this unit is on the battlefield, you can pick up to 5 different friendly SUMMONABLE units or friendly OSSIARCH BONEREAPERS units in any combination. For each of those units, you can either heal up to 3 wounds that have been allocated to that unit or, if no wounds have been allocated to it, you can return a number of slain models to that unit that have a combined Wounds characteristic of 3 or less.

Morikhane: This ensorcelled armour protects Nagash from arcane as well as physical attacks and can even cause an intense magical backlash on those who dare strike him.
This unit has a ward of 4+ for damage inflicted by mortal wounds. In addition, if the unmodified ward roll for this unit is 6, that attacking unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

Supreme Lord of the Undead: Nagash is the undisputed master of all undead creatures.
If this unit is on the battlefield when you use an ability that returns slain models to a friendly DEATH unit, you can either re-roll the dice that determines the number of slain models returned to that unit or add 1 to the number of slain models that are returned to that unit.

Death Magic Incarnate: Nagash stands at the apex of the necromantic hierarchy.
You can use this command ability if this unit is on the battlefield at the start of the combat phase. The unit that receives this command must be a different friendly DEATH unit. Add 1 to ward rolls for that unit until the end of that phase.

Hand of Dust: It is said that the touch of Nagash can wither and age any mortal, turning them to little more than a pile of dusty bones in mere moments.
Hand of Dust is a spell that has a casting value of 8 and a range of 3". If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy model within range and visible to the caster. Then, take a dice and hide it in one of your hands or under one of two appropriate containers. Your opponent must pick one of your hands or containers. If they pick the one holding the dice, the spell has no effect. If they pick the empty hand or container, the enemy model is slain.

Soul Stealer: Nagash can siphon souls from the living to heal his own wounds.
Soul Stealer 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 and roll 2D6. If the roll is greater than that unit’s Bravery characteristic, it suffers D3 mortal wounds. If the roll is at least double that unit’s Bravery characteristic, it suffers D6 mortal wounds instead. You can heal up to 1 wound that has been allocated to the caster for each mortal wound caused by this spell that is not negated.

KEYWORDS
DEATH, DEATHLORDS, HERO, MONSTER, WIZARD, NAGASH
14.4 Healing Wounds
Some abilities allow you to heal wounds that have been allocated to a model. For each wound that is healed, reduce the number of wounds allocated to the model by 1, to a minimum of 0. You cannot heal wounds on a model that is slain.
19.1 Casting Spells
In your hero phase, you can attempt to cast spells with friendly WIZARDS. You cannot attempt to cast the same spell more than once in the same hero phase, even with a different WIZARD. In order to attempt to cast a spell, pick a friendly WIZARD, say which of the spells that they know will be attempted, and then make a casting roll by rolling 2D6. If the casting roll is equal to or greater than the casting value of the spell, the spell is successfully cast.
19.1.2 Unbinding Spells
If a spell is successfully cast, your opponent can pick 1 of their WIZARDS that is within 30" of the caster to attempt to unbind the spell before its effects are applied. In order to attempt to unbind a spell, first say which WIZARD will attempt to unbind it. Then make an unbinding roll by rolling 2D6. If the unbinding roll is greater than the roll used to cast the spell, then the spell is unbound and its effects are not applied. The number of spells a WIZARD can attempt to unbind is noted on their warscroll. Only 1 unbinding attempt can be made for each spell.
Arcane Bolt
The caster calls forth a ball of crackling arcane energy that hovers above their outstretched hand, ready to be hurled at a foe.
Arcane Bolt is a spell that has a casting value of 5 and a range of 12". If successfully cast, at the start of any 1 phase before your next hero phase, you can pick 1 enemy unit within range and visible to the caster. That unit suffers 1 mortal wound. If that unit is within 3" of the caster, it suffers D3 mortal wounds instead of 1.
9.4 Flying
If the warscroll used by a model says that it can fly, you can ignore other models and terrain features when you trace the path of its move across the battlefield (it flies over them). In addition, when a model that can fly starts or finishes a move on a terrain feature, instead of tracing its move across the battlefield, you can trace it ‘through the air’, as shown in the diagram below.

A flying model cannot finish a move on top of another model or finish a normal move, run or retreat within 3" of an enemy unit.
19.3.2 Dispelling Endless Spells
At the start of the hero phase, each player can attempt to dispel 1 endless spell with each friendly WIZARD and friendly PRIEST. The player whose turn is taking place makes all of their dispelling attempts first. If a WIZARD attempts to dispel an endless spell, they can attempt to cast or unbind 1 fewer spell in that hero phase. If a PRIEST attempts to dispel an endless spell, they can chant 1 fewer prayer in that hero phase. The same player cannot attempt to dispel the same endless spell more than once per phase.

To attempt to dispel an endless spell, pick 1 endless spell that is within 30" of a friendly WIZARD or friendly PRIEST and that is visible to them. Then make a dispelling roll by rolling 2D6. If the roll is greater than the casting value of that endless spell, it is dispelled and removed from play. An endless spell cannot be summoned again in the turn that it is removed from play.
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.
6.1 Using Command Abilities
To use a command ability, you must spend 1 command point, pick 1 friendly model to issue the command, and pick 1 friendly unit to receive the command. Unless noted otherwise, the models that can issue commands and the units they can issue them to are as follows:
  • Unit champions can issue commands to their own unit (see 22.3.2).
  • HEROES can issue commands to units that are wholly within 12" of them.
  • Generals can issue commands to units that are wholly within 18" of them.
  • TOTEMS can issue commands to units that are wholly within 18" of them.
Each command ability will say when it can be used and what effect it has on the unit that receives it. A model cannot issue more than 1 command in the same phase and a unit cannot receive more than 1 command in the same phase. In addition, you cannot use the same command ability more than once in the same phase (even for different units).

The DEATHLORDS keyword is used in the following Soulblight Gravelords warscrolls:

Leader, Behemoth
14.2 Slain Models
Once the number of wounds allocated to a model equals its Wounds characteristic, the model is slain and you cannot allocate any more wounds to it. A slain model is removed from play (see 1.2.2) after all of the wounds caused to its unit have been allocated and all attacks that inflicted damage on the unit have been resolved.

The warscrolls using SUMMONABLE keyword can be found in the following Factions:

Death: Nighthaunt, Soulblight Gravelords.

The OSSIARCH BONEREAPERS keyword is used in the following Ossiarch Bonereapers warscrolls:

14.3 Wards
Some abilities allow you to roll a dice to negate a wound or mortal wound. Abilities of this type are referred to as wards, and the dice roll is referred to as a ward roll. Unless stated otherwise, the ward roll is made before the wound is allocated to the model in question. Up to 1 ward roll can be made for each wound or mortal wound. If the ward roll is successful, the wound or mortal wound is negated and has no effect on the model.
