Nagash is a named character that is a single model. He is armed with Zefet-nebtar, Alakanash and the Gaze of Nagash.
Nagash is accompanied by a host of spirits that fight with their Spectral Claws and Daggers. For rules purposes, they are treated in the same manner as a mount
If this unit is included in an Ossiarch Bonereapers army, it is treated as a general
even if it is not the model picked to be the army’s general.
Alakanash, the Staff of Power: This staff is capped with gems of purest Shyishan realmstone.
Add the Staff of Power value shown on this model’s damage table to casting
rolls for this model. In addition, this model 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.
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 model 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 with a combined Wounds characteristic of 3 or less.
Frightful Touch: The malign spirits that surround Nagash can freeze an opponent’s blood with a single touch.
If the unmodified hit roll
for an attack made with this model’s Spectral Claws and Daggers is 6, that attack inflicts 1 mortal wound
on the target and the attack sequence ends (do not make a wound or save roll
Morikhane: This ensorcelled armour protects Nagash from arcane as well as physical attacks and can even cause an intense magical backlash on those that dare strike him.
Roll a dice each time you allocate a mortal wound
to this model. On a 1-3, nothing happens. On a 4-5, that mortal wound is negated. On a 6, that mortal wound is negated and the attacking unit suffers 1 mortal wound.
The Nine Books of Nagash: Over his impossibly long existence, Nagash has collected a vast library of esoteric lore.
The Nine Books of Nagash allow Nagash to cast
extra spells in your hero phase
extra spells in the enemy hero phase. The number of extra spells he can attempt to cast or unbind is shown on this model’s damage table.
Nagash is a WIZARD
. He can attempt to cast
3 spells in your hero phase
and attempt to unbind
3 spells in the enemy hero phase (he can also attempt to cast and unbind extra spells due to the Nine Books of Nagash ability). He knows the Arcane Bolt
, Mystic Shield
, Hand of Dust
and Soul Stealer
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 has a casting value
of 8. If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy model within 3" of the caster. Then, take a dice and hide it in one of your hands. Your opponent must pick one of your hands. If they pick the one holding the dice, the spell has no effect. If they pick the empty hand, the enemy model is slain.
Soul Stealer: Nagash can siphon souls from the living to heal his own wounds.
Soul Stealer has a casting value
of 6. If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy unit within 24" of the caster that is visible to them 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 inflicted by this spell that is not negated.
Supreme Lord of the Undead: Nagash is the undisputed master of all undead creatures.
You can use this command ability
in your hero phase
if this model is on the battlefield. If you do so, until your next hero phase, you can re-roll hit rolls
of 1 for attacks made by friendly DEATH units, you can re-roll save rolls
of 1 for attacks that target friendly DEATH units, and do not take battleshock tests
for friendly DEATH units.
