DESCRIPTION

Aventis Firestrike is a named character that is a single model. He is armed with the Staff of Hammerhal.

MOUNT: Aventis’ Tauralon, Loithar, attacks with its Horns and Stamping Hooves.

FLY: This model can fly.

ABILITIES

Comet Trail: As a Tauralon swoops through the skies, it leaves a trail of sparkling Azyrite energy that settles on those below.
At the end of your movement phase, you can pick 1 enemy unit that has any models that this model passed across. You can add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made with missile weapons used by friendly STORMCAST ETERNAL units that target that unit in the same turn.

Cycle of the Storm: A Lord-Arcanum is capable of capturing the soul-stuff of a fallen Stormcast Eternal, returning it back to the battlefield to continue the fight.
Once per turn, when a friendly STORMCAST ETERNAL model is slain within 18" of this model, instead of removing the slain model, you can heal 1 wound allocated to it. This model cannot use this ability on itself.

Meteoric Strike: A Tauralon descends from the skies without warning, smashing into the foe with its horned head lowered.
Roll a dice for each enemy unit that is within 1" of this model after this model makes a charge move. On a 2+ that unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

Righteous Indignation: When roused to wrath, Aventis channels that anger into his magical powers, blasting the foe.
Each time a wound inflicted by a melee weapon is allocated to this model, roll a dice. On a 5+ the attacking unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

Spirit Flask: As a desperate last resort, Lord- Arcanums can smash open one or more of the filled spirit flasks that they carry, causing a deadly explosion of soul energy that engulfs the wizard and anybody that is nearby.
Once per battle, at the start of the combat phase, you can say that this model will shatter 1, 2 or 3 spirit flasks. If you do so, each unit within 3" of this model suffers 1 mortal wound for each spirit flask that was shattered. Units within 3" with 10 or more models suffer D3 mortal wounds for each spirit flask that was shattered instead. Allocate the mortal wounds to this model last of all, after allocating them to any other units that are affected.

Thunderhead Crown: Aventis’ helm taps into the Anvil of the Apotheosis, renewing him, even in the thick of battle.
In your hero phase, heal 1 wound allocated to this model.

MAGIC

Aventis Firestrike is a WIZARD. He can attempt to cast two spells in your hero phase, and attempt to unbind two spells in the enemy hero phase. He knows the Arcane Bolt, Mystic Shield and Pyroelectric Blast spells. In addition, the Arcane Bolts that he unleashes are fuelled by Prime Electrids.

Pyroelectric Blast: By combining the magic of Aqshy and Azyr, Aventis can channel a blast of power that can melt even solid stone.
Pyroelectric Blast has a casting value of 6. If successfully cast, pick a point on the battlefield within 9" of the caster that is visible to them. Draw an imaginary line 1mm wide between that point and the closest part of the caster. Each unit, apart from the caster, that has any models beneath this line suffers D3 mortal wounds.

Prime Electrids: With the power of Azyr crackling through them, Lord-Arcanums can summon lightning as easily as another mortal draws breath.
If this model successfully casts Arcane Bolt and it is not unbound, then the spell inflicts D3 mortal wounds instead of 1, or D6 mortal wounds instead of D3 if the casting roll was 10+.

COMMAND ABILITIES

Fiery Orator: Aventis Firestrike’s rousing commands can inflame the righteous fury of his followers, pushing them to ever greater heights of aggression.
You can use this command ability at the start of the combat phase. If you do so, pick a friendly HAMMERS OF SIGMAR unit wholly within 12" of a friendly model with this command ability. Add 1 to wound rolls for attacks made by that unit until the end of that phase.

Hit Roll
Roll a dice. If the roll equals or beats the attacking weapon’s To Hit characteristic, the attack scores a hit and you must make a wound roll. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified hit roll of 1 always fails and an unmodified hit roll of 6 always hits. A hit roll cannot be modified by more than +1 or -1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).

Sometimes an ability will allow a single hit roll to score two or more hits. If this is the case, make all of the wound and save rolls for those hits at the same time.
13.1.1 Shooting Attacks
When a friendly unit shoots, you can make shooting attacks with any of the missile weapons the models in the unit are armed with that they are allowed to use (including missile weapons used by mounts).

The target of a shooting attack must be within a number of inches of the attacking model equal to the Range characteristic of the weapon being used to make the attack. The range must be measured to the closest visible model in the target unit (if you are unsure whether a model is visible, stoop down and take a look from behind the shooting model). Models can see through other models in their unit.

Some missile weapons have a Range characteristic with a minimum range (e.g. 6"-48"). Units wholly within the minimum range cannot be targeted with these weapons.

The STORMCAST ETERNAL keyword is used in the following Stormcast Eternals warscrolls:

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.
11.1 Charge Moves
When you attempt a charge with a unit, make a charge roll for the unit by rolling 2D6. You can then make a charge move with each model in that unit by moving the model a distance in inches that is equal to or less than the charge roll. The first model you move in a unit attempting a charge must finish the move within 1/2" of an enemy unit. If this is impossible, no models in the unit can make a charge move.

You do not have to pick a target for a charge attempt before making the charge roll.
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.
13.1.2 Combat Attacks
When a friendly unit fights, you must make combat attacks with all of the melee weapons the models in the unit are armed with that they are allowed to use (including melee weapons used by the unit’s mounts, if there are any).

The target of a combat attack must be within a number of inches of the attacking model equal to the Range characteristic of the weapon being used to make the attack (the target does not have to be visible).

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.
Mystic Shield
The caster conjures up a shield of shimmering energy to protect themselves or an ally from harm.
Mystic Shield is a spell that has a casting value of 5 and a range of 12". If successfully cast, pick 1 friendly unit wholly within range and visible to the caster. Add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target that unit until your next hero phase.

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).
Wound Roll
Roll a dice. If the roll equals or beats the attacking weapon’s To Wound characteristic, the attack wounds the target and your opponent must make a save roll. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified wound roll of 1 always fails and an unmodified wound roll of 6 always wounds. A wound roll cannot be modified by more than +1 or -1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).
