Dryads

Crooning a song of slaughter, the Sylvaneth Dryads stride from the forest’s depths to fall upon those who would defile their soulpod groves. With vicious talons, the Dryads stab and strangle, dancing lithely between their enemies even as they tear them apart.

BATTALIONS

This warscroll can be used in the following warscroll battalions:
 • Alliance of Wood and Sea
 • Forest Folk

DESCRIPTION

A unit of Dryads has any number of models, each armed with Wracking Talons.

BRANCH NYMPH: 1 model in this unit can be a Branch Nymph. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that model’s Wracking Talons.

ABILITIES

Blessings of the Forest: Currents of life magic flow through Sylvaneth Wyldwoods like freshwater streams, lending protection to kindred creatures nearby.
Subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks that target this unit if it is wholly within 6" of any friendly Awakened Wyldwoods.

Enrapturing Song: The eerie, lilting voices of Dryads can lull listeners into a fatal stupor.
At the start of your combat phase, pick 1 enemy unit within 3" of this unit. Add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by this unit that target that enemy unit in that phase.

Impenetrable Thicket: When Dryads gather in great numbers, their many twisting limbs and branches form an interlocking shield of thorns that protects them against the enemy’s blows.
Add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target this unit while it contains 10 or more models.

KEYWORDS
ORDER, SYLVANETH, FOREST FOLK, DRYADS
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.
Save Roll
Your opponent rolls a dice, modifying the roll by the attacking weapon’s Rend characteristic. If the roll equals or beats the target unit’s Save characteristic, the target is saved and the attack sequence ends. If not, the attack is successful and you must determine the damage that is inflicted on the target. An unmodified save roll of 1 always fails. A save roll cannot be modified by more than +1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).

Designer’s Note: Save rolls do not always succeed on an unmodified roll of 6, and they can be modified by more than -1.
