The surest blow is delivered from the shadows. None know this better than the Daughters of Khaine, they who have drenched the canyons of Ulgu in the blood of countless trespassers and would-be despoilers. Even as the Mortal Realms are consumed by the totality of war, the great temple-city of Hagg Nar echoes to the screams of sacrificial victims and the frenzied chanting of Witch Aelves. Morathi, the infamous High Oracle of Khaine, prepares for the most important battle she will ever fight.

Let Sigmar and Nagash shake the earth beneath the tread of colossal armies, playing out their ancient hatred upon a thousand war fronts. Let the orruks and the foul minions of Chaos indulge in primitive savagery, burning and pillaging in an aimless, mindless orgy of destruction.

In the midst of such calamity there is golden opportunity – and Morathi’s ambition transcends mere conquest.

While her enemies tear themselves to bloody shreds upon the spears and blades of their rivals, the High Oracle will play a subtler game. Deceit and deception shall be her weapons, betrayal her most potent poison.

The High Oracle of Khaine desires nothing less than the power of a true goddess, and she will let nothing stand in the way of her ascension.

Bonds will be broken, alliances will be shattered, and powerful enemies made. And when the dust settles, the fate of the Mortal Realms will be forever altered.

Morathi

The surest blow is delivered from the shadows. None know this better than the Daughters of Khaine, they who have drenched the canyons of Ulgu in the blood of countless trespassers and would-be despoilers. Even as the Mortal Realms are consumed by the totality of war, the great temple-city of Hagg Nar echoes to the screams of sacrificial victims and the frenzied chanting of Witch Aelves. Morathi, the infamous High Oracle of Khaine, prepares for the most important battle she will ever fight.

This section of Broken Realms: Morathi contains exciting new rules for open and narrative play games. You can use the rules in this section to recreate the battles that were fought when Morathi unleashed her plan to raise herself to godhood and take control of the free city of Anvilgard.

Campaign Rules

This book includes six battleplans, each based on a critical battle that was part of Morathi’s quest to become a god and extend the power of the Khainite Cult within the Mortal Realms. The rules on this page allow you to play a series of linked games that recreates the High Oracle’s monstrously ambitious plan.

THE ARMIES
This campaign is fought between two players. One player is the Morathi player and the other player is the Enemy player. The Morathi player must be able to field the following armies from the battleplans:
Priceless Bounty: Morathi’s Army
Valley of Ash and Blood: Stormcast Eternals Army
Hagganal Bay: Daughters of Khaine Army
The Inner Chamber: Daughters of Khaine Army
The Undertunnels: Ven Brecht’s Army
The Fall of Anvilgard: Insurrectionist Army

The Enemy player must be able to field the following armies:
Priceless Bounty: Slaves to Darkness Army
Valley of Ash and Blood: Slaves to Darkness Army
Hagganal Bay: Idoneth Deepkin Army
The Inner Chamber: Idoneth Deepkin Army
The Undertunnels: Beastmasters Army
The Fall of Anvilgard: Anvilgard Army

THE BATTLES
The players must fight each battle in the order in which they appear in Broken Realms: Morathi book.

CONSEQUENCES OF BATTLE
Any named characters that are slain in a battle are assumed to have been hurt but not killed, and will be fully recovered in time for the next battle. This aside, the result of an earlier battle may have an impact on subsequent battles that are fought, as explained below. If you are allowed to add units to your army, they must conform to any Unit Selection restrictions for the battleplan being used.

Priceless Bounty/Valley of Ash and Blood: No changes.

Hagganal Bay: The Morathi player can add 1 DAUGHTERS OF KHAINE unit to their army for each major victory they have won so far in the campaign. The Enemy player can add 1 IDONETH DEEPKIN unit to their army for each major victory they have won so far in the campaign.

The Inner Chamber: If Volturnos was slain in Hagganal Bay, he does not take part in this battle. If Nemmetar was slain in Hagganal Bay, he is replaced with an Akhelian King and the Bloodsurf Hunt warscroll battalion is not used. If the Enemy player won a major victory in Hagganal Bay, they can add 1 Akhelian Allopexes unit to their army.

The Undertunnels: If Ven Brecht was not slain in Valley of Ash and Blood, the Enemy player receives D3 command points at the start of the first battle round of this battle. If the Morathi player won a major victory in The Inner Chamber, they receive D3 command points at the start of the first battle round of this battle.

The Fall of Anvilgard: The Morathi player can add 1 CITIES OF SIGMAR or DAUGHTERS OF KHAINE unit to their army for each major victory they have won so far in the campaign. The Enemy player can add 1 STORMCAST ETERNALS or CITIES OF SIGMAR unit to their army for each major victory they have won so far in the campaign.

CAMPAIGN VICTORY
If one player is victorious in Priceless Bounty, The Inner Chamber and The Fall of Anvilgard, they win a total campaign victory. If one player is victorious in The Fall of Anvilgard and either Priceless Bounty or The Inner Chamber, they win a strategic campaign victory. In any other circumstances, the victor in The Fall of Anvilgard wins a tactical campaign victory.

Alternative Armies
If you don’t have all of the units or armies needed to fight a campaign, just substitute suitable units that you do have for the ones that you don’t. For example, if the player using the Morathi army in Priceless Bounty didn’t have any SACROSANCT units, they could substitute them for STORMCAST ETERNALS or DAUGHTERS OF KHAINE units they do have.

Realms of Battle

Below you will find three new sets of Realms of Battle rules that allow you to fight battles set in the regions of the Mortal Realms described in the narrative section of Broken Realms: Morathi. These rules are suitable for narrative and open play games but are not intended for matched play.

Realm of Battle: The Helleflux, Ulgu

REALMSPHERE MAGIC
Umbral Leap: The caster becomes one with the darkness, traversing the battlefield in a flicker of shadows.
Umbral Leap has a casting value of 8. If successfully cast, remove the caster from the battlefield and then set them up again anywhere on the battlefield more than 9" from any enemy units. If this spell is successfully cast and not unbound, the caster cannot move in the next movement phase.

REALMSCAPE FEATURE
Wellspring of Shadow: The Helleflux is a great font of Ulguan magic, rendering the surrounding islands places of illusion and deception where nothing is as it seems.
For each terrain feature that has a scenery rule that would be picked or determined before the battle, do not do so before the battle. Instead, the first time a unit is set up or finishes a move within 1" of that terrain feature, randomly determine the scenery rule by rolling on the Scenery table.

REALM COMMAND
Unseen Killers: Those who make war in the lands around the Helleflux quickly learn to strike from the shadows with deadly effect.
You can use this command ability when you pick a friendly unit to shoot or fight and that unit is wholly within 12" of a friendly HERO and wholly within 3" of a terrain feature. If you do so, add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by that unit until the end of the phase.

REALM ARTEFACT
The Fetch’s Ring: This ensorcelled band of dark metal projects a shadowy mirror image of the bearer, drawing the enemy’s attention.
Roll a dice each time you allocate a wound or mortal wound to the bearer. On a 4+, that wound or mortal wound is negated. If this artefact of power negates a wound or mortal wound, you cannot use it to attempt to negate any more wounds or mortal wounds for the rest of the phase.

Realm of Battle: The Charrwind Coast, Aqshy

REALMSPHERE MAGIC
Scalehide: The caster transforms the subject’s flesh into the tough, scaly hide of a drake.
Scalehide has a casting value of 7. If successfully cast, pick 1 friendly HERO that does not have a mount, is within 12" of the caster and is visible to them. Add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target that HERO until your next hero phase.

REALMSCAPE FEATURE
Sweltering Mists: Thick, billowing mists roll across the Charrwind Coast, providing the perfect cover for advancing killers.
At the start of the enemy shooting phase, you can pick up to D3 friendly units to be covered by mist. Subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks that target those units until the end of the phase.

REALM COMMAND
Misthunters: Those who fight amidst the haze of the Charrwind Coast learn to rely on their instincts as much as their senses.
You can use this command ability before you pick a unit to shoot in your shooting phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly unit wholly within 12" of a friendly HERO. Do not subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks made by that unit that target an enemy unit covered by mist (see Sweltering Mists).

REALM ARTEFACT
Black Kraken Helm: Just like the tentacled, deep-sea monstrosity in whose image it has been fashioned, this helm can project swirling clouds of a powerful toxin.
Once per battle, at the end of a combat phase, you can roll a dice for each enemy unit within 3" of the bearer. On a 4+, that enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

Realm of Battle: Varanthax’s Maw, The Eightpoints

REALMSPHERE MAGIC
Fleshwarp: With a gesture, the caster causes the flesh of their target to melt and reform into a new and hideous configuration.
Fleshwarp has a casting value of 8. If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy HERO within 12" of the caster that is visible to them. Subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks made by that HERO for the rest of the battle. This spell cannot affect the same HERO more than once per battle, and has no effect on hit rolls for attacks made by a mount.

REALMSCAPE FEATURE
Forbidden Forgecraft: Within the halls and forge-floors of Varanthax’s Maw can be found all manner of arcane esoterica, weapons, armour and priceless artefacts.
Once per battle, in your hero phase, you can pick 1 friendly HERO that does not have an artefact of power, that is not a named character and that is within 1" of an objective marker or terrain feature wholly within enemy territory. If you do so, roll a dice. On a 2+, you can give that HERO an artefact of power. The artefact must be one that could have been given to the HERO when the army was chosen.

REALM COMMAND
Self-sacrifice: Warriors who fight in Varanthax’s Maw soon learn that they may have to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to ensure victory for their army.
You can use this command ability at the start of the combat phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly unit wholly within 12" of a friendly HERO. Until the end of the phase, add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by that unit, and subtract 1 from save rolls for attacks that target that unit.

REALM ARTEFACT
The Devourer: Fashioned from pure varanite, this immense two-headed axe inflicts wounds that turn into gnashing mouths in the victim’s flesh and devour them from within.
Pick 1 of the bearer’s melee weapons. If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with that weapon that targets a HERO is 6, that attack inflicts 1 mortal wound on the target in addition to any normal damage.

Battleplan

Priceless Bounty

Morathi’s army and the arcane warriors of the Dolorites pressed on until they at last entered the lowest depths of Varanthax’s Maw, where three bloated borewyrms slurped up huge volumes of varanite. Morathi drove forward, destroying the Chaos Warriors that guarded the borewyrms and collecting the molten realmstone in her Cauldrons of Blood. All that then remained was to escape, while ensuring that none of her Stormcast Eternal allies survived to reveal what she had done…

Battleplan

Valley of Ash and Blood

While Morathi fought in the depths of Varanthax’s Maw, on the surface a Stormcast Eternals army fought a desperate battle against a much larger Chaos force.

Battleplan

Hagganal Bay

Nowhere was the battle fiercer than at Hagganal Bay. Namarti emerged from the crashing waves, skipping nimbly across slick stone. Watchtowers spat streaming arcs of shadowflame into their midst, wreathing scores in flesh-melting black fire. Reaper-bolts scythed through the mass of pale bodies, and Khinerai descended from the inky clouds in killing flocks…

Battleplan

The Inner Chamber

The Bloodsurf Hunt of King Nemmetar led the charge through the shadowed halls of the First Temple, his Allopexes tearing a swathe through the Khainite temple guards. With every bite the blade-finned predators became more frenzied, but their bloodscent remained impeccable – they led Nemmetar and the High King straight to the great doors of Khruthú. A blow from the Astra Solus splintered shadow-forged metal, and the High King’s retinue burst into the inner chamber – the very seat of Morathi’s power…

Battleplan

The Undertunnels

As the battle raged on through the streets of Anvilgard, Ven Brecht led a small, potent battleforce into the undertunnels with the aim of recapturing the Freeguild cogfort Old Firesnout. Ven Brecht had hoped to avoid confrontation with the enemy, but that proved a vain wish. Beastmasters of the Order Serpentis in thrall to Kraeth had driven their most fearsome monsters underground. As Ven Brecht’s force neared the location of Old Firesnout, the ground shook and thundering out of the darkness came many-headed War Hydras, snorting flames as they caught the scent of prey on the foetid wind.

The Shadow Queen
After the Shadow Queen arrives, at the end of each combat phase the Insurrectionist player can use her to attack Old Firesnout. If they do so, they must roll a dice. The roll is the amount of damage inflicted on Old Firesnout.

Once the damage inflicted on Old Firesnout is 4 or more, it has been destroyed, the Anvilgard player can no longer use the Cogfort Barrage rule and the Insurrectionist player must set up the Shadow Queen anywhere on the battlefield more than 3" from any enemy units.

BATTLE LENGTH
The battle lasts for 5 battle rounds.

GLORIOUS VICTORY
At the end of the battle, if more Insurrectionist army units have been destroyed than Anvilgard army units and the Shadow Queen has suffered more than 3 wounds, the Anvilgard player wins a major victory.

At the end of the battle, if more Insurrectionist army units have been destroyed than Anvilgard army units and the Shadow Queen has suffered less than 4 wounds, the Anvilgard player wins a minor victory.

At the end of the battle, if at least twice as many Anvilgard army units have been destroyed as Insurrectionist army units, the Insurrectionist player wins a major victory.

Any other result is a minor victory for the Insurrectionist player.

Teclis

The rise of the Lumineth, precipitated by Teclis’ forays into the Mortal Realms, saw the aelves restore order across a hundred war-torn nations. They and their allies did not stand uncontested – indeed, amongst the cast of madmen, tyrants and kings that opposed them was the Great Necromancer himself.

This section of Broken Realms: Teclis contains exciting new rules for open and narrative play games. You can use the rules in this section to recreate the battles that were fought between the forces of Teclis and Nagash as they struggled for supremacy in the Mortal Realms.

Campaign Rules

This book includes six battleplans, each based on a critical battle that was part of the campaign fought between the Lumineth Realm-lords and Nagash. The rules on this page allow you to play a series of linked games that recreates the events of the entire campaign leading up to Nagash’s duel with Teclis.

THE ARMIES
This campaign is fought between two players. One player is the Teclis player and the other player is the Nagash player. The Teclis player must be able to field the following armies from the battleplans:
Storm of Gheists: Settler’s Gain Army
Across the Plains: Lumineth Realm-lords Army
The Reality Sores: Maggotkin of Nurgle Army

THE BATTLES
The players must fight each battle in the order in which they appear in this book.

CONSEQUENCES OF BATTLE
Any named characters that are slain in a battle are assumed to have been hurt but not killed, and will be fully recovered in time for the next battle. This aside, the result of an earlier battle may have an impact on subsequent battles that are fought, as explained below.

If you are allowed to add units to your army they must conform to any Unit Selection restrictions for the battleplan being used.

Storm of Gheists/All That Glitters: No changes.

Across The Plains: The player that won Storm of Gheists receives 1 extra command point at the start of the first battle round of this battle.

The Reality Sores: The player that won Across The Plains receives 1 extra command point at the start of the first battle round of this battle.

A Fate Postponed: The winner of All That Glitters receives 1 extra command point at the start of the first battle round of this battle if they won a minor victory, or D3 extra command points at the start of the first battle round if they won a major victory.

A Clash of Gods: The Teclis player can add 1 LUMINETH REALM-LORDS unit to their army for each major victory they have won so far in the campaign. The Nagash player can add 1 OSSIARCH BONEREAPERS unit to their army for each major victory they have won so far in the campaign.

CAMPAIGN VICTORY
If one player is victorious in Storm of Gheists, A Fate Postponed and A Clash of Gods, they win a total campaign victory. If one player is victorious in A Clash of Gods and either Storm of Gheists or A Fate Postponed, they win a strategic campaign victory. In any other circumstances, the victor in A Clash of Gods wins a tactical campaign victory.

Alternative Armies
If you don’t have all of the units or armies needed to fight a campaign, just substitute suitable units that you do have for the ones that you don’t. For example, if the player using the Null Myriad army in A Fate Postponed didn’t have any Gothizzar Harvesters, they could substitute them for OSSIARCH BONEREAPERS units they do have.

Streets of Death

The Mortal Realms are studded with settlements, ranging from mighty walled strongholds through to dung-filled wooden shanty towns. At times of war it is extremely common for ferocious battles to be fought amidst the streets, buildings and alleyways of these hubs of civilisation.

Sometimes a battleplan will use only some of the Streets of Death rules. In this case, it will list the rules that apply. If a battleplan simply says to use the Streets of Death rules, then all of the following rules apply.

The Streets of Death rules are divided into two types: those that can be used with any battleplan, and those that can only be used with battleplans that have an attacker and a defender. If a battleplan has an attacker and defender, it will describe how to decide who is the attacker and who is the defender.

The Streets of Death rules often refer to ‘buildings’. For rules purposes, a building is any terrain feature that can be garrisoned. In addition, the players can agree that any other terrain features they wish should count as buildings (Azyrite Ruins, for example).

Barricades: The defenders of a besieged settlement
will often place barricades across the streets.
After set-up is complete but before the battle begins, the defender can set up any number of barricades in their territory. Each barricade must stretch from one building to a different building that is within 8" of the first. The barricade can be represented by Walls and Fences, or any other suitable models in the player’s collection. Barricades are obstacles.

If a unit is within 1" of a barricade at the start of its movement phase and there are no enemy units within 6" of that barricade, that unit can knock that barricade down instead of making a normal move; if they do so, remove the barricade from the battlefield. A barricade that has been knocked down cannot be set up again.

Bricks and Stones: The terrified citizens of a settlement can hurl bricks, roof slates and other improvised missiles at their tormentors.
At the start of their shooting phase, the defender can make 1 Bricks and Stones attack from each building in their territory that has not been cleared (see below). To make a Bricks and Stones attack, pick 1 enemy unit within 6" of that building and roll a dice. On a 5+, that enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. A building is cleared when an enemy unit garrisons the building. The defender cannot make Bricks and Stones attacks from a building once it has been cleared, even if the enemy unit garrisoning that building stops garrisoning it, or if any of the defender’s units garrison it.

Hidden Defenders: Fighting through the streets of a settlement is a tense and dangerous affair, where every building could house hidden defenders.
Instead of setting them up on the battlefield, the defender can place any of their units to one side and say that they are set up in hiding as reserve units. They must declare that they are doing so for each such unit, and then secretly pick an unoccupied building wholly within their territory and make a note that the unit is hiding in that building. Hidden units are treated as garrisoning that building and must conform to any limitations that apply to garrisoning units.

The defender can reveal the location of any hidden units in their hero phase. In addition, they must reveal a hidden unit if an enemy unit attempts to garrison the building it is hiding in, the building it is hiding in collapses, or the building it is hiding in is set on fire. If a hidden unit is revealed because an enemy unit attempts to garrison the building it is hiding in, the enemy unit cannot garrison the building and cannot move in the movement phase in which it attempted to do so.

Narrow Streets: The narrow streets of a settlement are dangerous ground for mounted units, who risk crashing into the walls on either side of the street if they advance along them at anything other than a walking pace.
A narrow street is any area of open ground between two buildings that are 4" or less apart. If a MONSTER or a model with a mount makes a run move or charge move, and any part of that move was on a narrow street, roll a dice after the move has been made. On a 1, that model’s unit suffers 1 mortal wound after all of the models in the unit have been moved. Only roll for models that can fly if they finish a run move or a charge move on a narrow street.

Realms of Battle

Below you will find three new sets of Realms of Battle rules that allow you to fight battles set in the regions of the Mortal Realms described in the narrative section of Broken Realms: Teclis. These rules are suitable for narrative and open play games but are not intended for matched play.

Realm of Battle: Praetoris, Shyish

REALMSPHERE MAGIC
Drain Vitality: This cursed spell saps a foe’s strength, leaving them weak and vulnerable.
Drain Vitality has a casting value of 6. If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy unit within 18" of the caster that is visible to them. Until your next hero phase, re-roll unmodified hit rolls of 6 for attacks made by that unit, and re-roll unmodified save rolls of 6 for attacks that target that unit.

REALMSCAPE FEATURE
The Triptych: This trio of statue-topped fortresses on the Great Plains of Praetoris is a nexus of death magic.
DEATH WIZARDS treat all terrain features as having the Arcane scenery rule in addition to any other scenery rules that they have.

REALM COMMAND
Full Tilt!: The flat plains of Praetoris allow mounted units to advance at a blistering pace.
You can use this command ability at the start of your movement phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly unit that has mounts and is wholly within 12" of a friendly HERO. That unit can run in that movement phase and still charge later in the same turn.

REALM ARTEFACT
Sepulchral Plate: The deathly energies of this black plate seep into the wearer’s wounds, substituting injury with unnatural vitality.
Roll a dice each time you allocate a wound to the bearer. On a 6, that wound is negated.

Realm of Battle: Invidia, Ghyran

REALMSPHERE MAGIC
Cloying Quagmire: The sorcerer thrusts their hands into the soil, causing the ground to liquefy into a sucking, gasping quagmire.
Cloying Quagmire has a casting value of 5. If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy unit within 14" of the caster that is visible to them and roll a dice. If the roll is equal to or greater than that unit’s Save characteristic, that unit suffers D6 mortal wounds.

REALMSCAPE FEATURE
Thumb-sized Mosquitos: The ruin-dotted swamps of Invida are home to blood-sucking insects that are of a monstrous size.
At the start of the enemy movement phase, you can pick up to D3 enemy units. Roll a dice for each unit. On a 1-3 nothing happens. On a 4-5, that unit suffers 1 mortal wound. On a 6, that unit suffers 1 mortal wound and cannot run in that phase.

REALM COMMAND
Submerge: The swamplands of Invidia can provide protection from enemy attacks to those warriors who are willing to submerge themselves in its foetid waters.
You can use this command ability at the start of the enemy shooting phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly unit that is wholly within 12" of a friendly HERO. Apply the cover modifier to save rolls for that unit until the end of that phase.

REALM ARTEFACT
The Fecund Flask: The bearer of this flask can drink deep of its endless contents, allowing the poisonous blessings of Nurgle to restore their vitality – though not always in the way the imbiber may have hoped.
Once per battle, at the start of your hero phase, you can roll a dice for the bearer. On a 2+, all wounds allocated the bearer are healed. On a 1, the bearer is slain, but before they are removed you can add 1 BEASTS OF NURGLE unit with 1 model to your army. Set up the unit within 1" of the bearer, then remove the bearer.

Realm of Battle: Ymetrica, Hysh

REALMSPHERE MAGIC
Folds in Perception: The caster bends the light of Hysh in such a way that their allies are hidden in plain sight from the enemy.
Folds in Perception has a casting value of 6. If successfully cast, pick 2 points on the battlefield within 12" of the caster and within 12" of each other. Until your next hero phase, friendly models are not visible to enemy models that cannot fly if an imaginary straight line 1mm wide drawn between the closest points of the two models passes between those 2 points.

REALMSCAPE FEATURE
Mountainous Landscape: The Hyshian paradise of Ymetrica is dominated by soaring mountains. Marching armies can only find passage between the peaks by using the valleys that lie between them.
Reserve units that must be set up within a certain distance of the edge of the battlefield can only be set up within that distance of the two narrow edges of the battlefield.

REALM COMMAND
Hidden Pathways: A wise commander will send scouts to discover hidden pathways across the mountain ranges that dominate these lands.
You can use this command ability when you set up a reserve unit that must be set up within a certain distance of the edge of the battlefield. If you do so, you can ignore the Mountainous Landscape realmscape feature when you set up that unit.

REALM ARTEFACT
Prism of Amyntok: This prism can focus the light of Hysh into a devastating beam.
In your shooting phase, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 8" of the bearer that is visible to them and roll 4 dice. For each 6, that unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

Battleplan

Storm of Gheists

The city of Settler’s Gain in Hysh was a place of high spires and soaring achievement, built from nothing at the dawn of the Age of Sigmar. Yet even the favour of its Lumineth sponsors did not mean it was immune to the crippling effects of the Necroquake. In the space of a single night, Hysh’s foremost human city had transformed from a bulwark of glittering sanctity to a place of the blackest terror.

The Reality Sores

Riding into hagfish-choked waters, a host of mounted wights struck deep into Invidia. Horticulous Slimux gathered his fellow Heralds and moved to block the cavalry force encroaching on his domain. With him went the Spoilpox Scrivener known as Noddrack the Snitch and the capering Sloppity Bilepiper Gortle Pulpskull.

A Fate Postponed

At first, the assault upon Ymetrica by the Null Myriad under Arkhan proved unstoppable. The Lumineth learned quickly, however, and through great sacrifice were able to slow and then halt the Myriad’s advance. Then Sevireth, Lord of the Seventh Wind, came searing through the mountain vales at the head of a leaping, shouting spearhead of Hurakan warriors, and the Realm-lords’ methodical campaign to cut off their foe’s supply of bone turned into a joyous, headlong assault.

A Clash of Gods

Teclis and Nagash are locked in an epic duel fought on both the physical and spiritual planes. As each tries to wrest the advantage, immense armies are engaged in an equally titanic battle all around them.

Be’lakor

Long has Be’lakor waited for this moment. From the shadows, the First Prince watched over the death of one world and the birth of eight others. He witnessed the wretch-king Sigmar build a golden empire, a gaudy monument to his insufferable hubris, and ached to cast it into ruin. Yet when the legions of the Dark Gods flooded into reality, this honour was granted to another, and Be’lakor was condemned to feast upon the scraps.

This section of Broken Realms: Be’lakor contains exciting new rules for open and narrative play games. You can use the rules in this section to recreate the battles that were fought during the build up to the siege of Vindicarum by the Legion of the First Prince, as well as the climactic final conflict itself.

Campaign Rules

This book includes six battleplans, each based on a critical battle that was part of Be’lakor’s scheme to destroy the caldera-city of Vindicarum and win the favour of the Chaos Gods. The rules on this page allow you to play a series of linked games that recreates what happened as the Dark Master’s plan unfolded.

This campaign is fought between two players. One player is the Be’lakor player and the other player is the Enemy player. Some of the battleplans have been designed to incorporate three or four players (see below). The Be’lakor player must be able to field the following armies from the battleplans:
Defenders of the Genesis Gate: Nurgle army
Stampede of Scales: Tzeentch army
In the Court of Death: Legion of the First Prince army
The Gate of White Gold: Legion of the First Prince army*
Disaster at Armsgate Zul: Eternal Conflagration army
On Wings of Iron: Legion of the First Prince army**

The Enemy player must be able to field the following armies:
Defenders of the Genesis Gate: Hallowed Knights army with Seraphon allies
Stampede of Scales: Thunder Lizard army
In the Court of Death: Emerald Host army
The Gate of White Gold: Stormcast Eternals army*
Disaster at Armsgate Zul: Hallowed Knights army with Cities of Sigmar allies
On Wings of Iron: Stormcast Eternals Army**

*A third player with a Nighthaunt army and a fourth player with a Cities of Sigmar army will be needed in order to fight this battle.

**A third player with an Eternal Conflagration army and a fourth player with a Barak-Zilfin army will be needed in order to fight this battle.

THE BATTLES
The players must fight each battle in the order in which they appear in this book.

CONSEQUENCES OF BATTLE
Any named characters that are slain in a battle are assumed to have been hurt but not killed, and will be fully recovered in time for the next battle. This aside, the result of an earlier battle may have an impact on subsequent battles that are fought, as explained below. If you are allowed to add units to your army, they must each conform to any Unit Selection restrictions for the battleplan being used.

Defenders of the Genesis Gate, Stampede of Scales, In the Court of Death: No changes.

The Gate of White Gold: Reduce the number of units in the Nighthaunt army by 2 if the Be’lakor player lost In the Court of Death. In addition, if Lady Olynder was slain in In the Court of Death, she does not take part in this battle.

Disaster at Armsgate Zul: Reduce the number of units in the Defender’s Army by 2 if the Defender lost Defenders of the Genesis Gate. Reduce the number of units in the Attacker’s Army by 2 if the Be’lakor player lost Stampede of Scales.

On Wings of Iron: Add 1 unit to the Legion of Chaos Ascendant Army for each major victory the Be’lakor player has won so far. Reduce the number of units in the Legion of Chaos Ascendant Army by 1 for each major victory the Defender player has won so far.

CAMPAIGN VICTORY
If one player is victorious in Defenders of the Genesis Gate, The Gate of White Gold and On Wings of Iron, they win a total campaign victory. If one player is victorious in On Wings of Iron and either Defenders of the Genesis Gate or The Gate of White Gold, they win a strategic campaign victory. In any other circumstances, the victor in On Wings of Iron wins a tactical campaign victory.

Alternative Armies
If you don’t have all of the units or armies needed to fight a campaign, just substitute suitable units that you do have for the ones that you don’t. It’s up to you to decide what you think would be appropriate replacements!

Realms of Battle

Below you will find three new sets of Realms of Battle rules that allow you to fight battles set in the regions of the Mortal Realms described in the narrative section of Broken Realms: Be’lakor. These rules are suitable for narrative and open play games but are not intended for matched play.

Realm of Battle: The Genesis Gate, Ghyran

REALMSPHERE MAGIC
ORDER WIZARD only.

Shield of Thorns: At the wizard’s command, snaking brambles burst from the ground, forming a living barrier around their allies.
Shield of Thorns has a casting value of 5. If successfully cast, pick a friendly unit within 18" of the caster that is visible to them. Until your next hero phase, any enemy unit that finishes a charge move within 3" of the unit you picked suffers D3 mortal wounds.

REALMSCAPE FEATURE
Ironwood Bulwarks: The wyldwoods near the Genesis Gate have been shaped by the Everqueen into defences covered with impaling thorns and poison-spitting flowers.
Roll a dice for each unit that finishes a run move or charge move within 1" of any Citadel Wood models. On a 4+, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

Designer’s Note: If the Citadel Wood models are part of an Awakened Wyldwood, this realmscape feature applies in addition to the Forest Spirits scenery rule, allowing you to roll twice to see if a unit that does not have the SYLVANETH keyword that finishes a charge move within 1" of the Awakened Wyldwood suffers any mortal wounds. If the charging unit finished their charge move within 3" of a unit protected by a Shield of Thorns, it would suffer D3 mortal wounds in addition to any mortal wounds inflicted by Ironwood Bulwarks and Wyldwood. Ouch!

REALM COMMAND
ORDER HERO only.

Command the Land: In the Realm of Life, even the landscape can be bent to your will.
You can use this command ability at the end of your hero phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly HERO. That HERO can attempt to cast the Shield of Thorns spell (see above), even if they are not a WIZARD, and even if a casting attempt for the spell has already been made in the same phase. If the HERO you picked is a WIZARD, then they can attempt to cast Shield of Thorns in addition to any other spells they have already attempted to cast, and even if a casting attempt for the spell has already been made by themselves or another WIZARD in the same phase.

REALM ARTEFACT
ORDER HERO only.

Seed of Rebirth: Should its bearer ever fall, the Seed’s rejuvenating energies will pour into its host to grant them new life.
The first time the bearer is slain, before removing them from the battlefield, roll a dice. On a 1, the bearer is slain. On a 2+, the bearer is not slain, you can heal up to D3 wounds allocated to them, and any wounds that remain to be allocated to them are negated.

Realm of Battle: Dolorum, Shyish

REALMSPHERE MAGIC
DEATH WIZARD only.

Quickening Doom: The caster utters a chilling curse that withers their victims’ flesh to ash and sends their souls screaming away into the night.
Quickening Doom has a casting value of 7. If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy unit within 9" of the caster that is visible to them. That unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. If any models in a unit are slain by the mortal wounds inflicted by this spell, that unit’s Bravery characteristic is reduced by 1 (to a minimum of 1) for the rest of the battle. The same unit cannot have its Bravery reduced by the spell more than once per battle.

REALMSCAPE FEATURE
Aura of Ancient Tragedy: The pall of despair that hangs over these lands is choking in its intensity.
Terrain features have the Sinister scenery rule (see the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Core Book), in addition to any other scenery rules that they have. In addition, at the start of your hero phase, roll a dice. Add 2 to the roll if your general has the DEATH keyword. On a 6+, pick an enemy unit that does not have the DEATH keyword. That unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

REALM COMMAND
DEATH HERO only.

Soul-force Sacrifice: Your general can siphon soulforce from their minions to extend their life.
You can use this command ability at the start of your hero phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly unit other than your general that is within 3" of your general. Allocate any number of wounds to that unit that you wish – you can heal 1 wound that has been allocated to your general for each wound that you allocate.

REALM ARTEFACT
DEATH HERO only.

Banshee Blade: This screaming blade can kill its victim even before they feel its keen edge.
Pick one of the bearer’s melee weapons. If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made with that weapon is 6, roll 2D6. If the roll is equal to or greater than the target’s Bravery characteristic, that attack inflicts D3 mortal wounds on the target in addition to its normal damage.

Realm of Battle: Prosperis, Chamon

REALMSPHERE MAGIC
CELESTIAL VINDICATORS or CITIES OF SIGMAR WIZARD only.

Final Transmutation: With a wave of their arm, the wizard transforms foes into immobile golden statues.
Final Transmutation has a casting value of 6. If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy unit within 18" of the caster that is visible to them and roll D3 dice. For each roll that is greater than that unit’s Wounds characteristic, 1 model from that unit is slain.

REALMSCAPE FEATURE
Ironclad Buildings: Many structures in Prosperis – particularly the ruins of old Prosperia – have become encased in thick crusts of metal, the result of chemical downpours and floods.
Worsen the Rend characteristic of attacks that target units in cover by 1 (to a minimum of ‘-’).

REALM COMMAND
Exult in Battle: The mortal inhabitants of Prosperis are infamous for their zealotry and eager anticipation of battle.
You can use this command ability at the start of the combat phase. If you do so, pick 1 friendly unit wholly within 12" of a friendly CELESTIAL VINDICATORS or CITIES OF SIGMAR HERO. If the unmodified hit roll for an attack made by that unit in that phase is 6, that attack inflicts 2 hits on the target instead of 1. Make a wound and save roll for each hit.

REALM ARTEFACT
CITIES OF SIGMAR HERO only.

Gildenbane: This armour negates the properties of magical artefacts nearby.
The rules for an artefact of power (other than Gildenbane) cannot be used while its bearer is within 3" of the bearer of Gildenbane. If a weapon was picked when the artefact of power was selected, the weapon’s normal profile is used instead.

Siege Warfare

Fortresses of all different shapes and sizes can be found throughout the Mortal Realms. Only a sizeable and highly motivated force has any chance of capturing such an objective and the spoils that lie beyond its walls, and then only at a terrible cost in blood and lives.


If a battleplan says to use the Siege Warfare rules, then it will define one player as the attacker and the other as the defender, and the following rules apply to that battle.

The Fortress

All Warhammer Age of Sigmar sieges require a fortress for the defender to occupy. If the battleplan instructs the defender to set up their fortress, they must set up at least 5 terrain features (but otherwise as many terrain features as they wish) wholly within their territory.

The Siege Phase

The siege phase takes place after the armies are set up but before the first battle round begins. Both the attacker and the defender must secretly pick a siege tactic. The attacker does this by hiding a dice showing 1, 2 or 3 behind their hand, while the defender does this by hiding a dice showing 4, 5 or 6 behind their hand. Each number corresponds to a different siege tactic, as shown in the table below.

Once both players have chosen their numbers, the dice are revealed and the numbers are cross-referenced on the table below to determine the modifiers that will apply to the siege rolls (see below).

Siege Rolls

The attacker now makes a series of rolls to determine the effects that their siege methods have had on the defenders. Make the batter rolls first, then the starve rolls, and finally the tunnel rolls. After all of the rolls have been made, the first battle round starts.

Batter Rolls: The attacker rolls a dice for each terrain feature wholly within the defender’s territory, applying the modifier from the Siege table (if there is one). On a 5+, if the terrain feature could be garrisoned, then it can no longer be garrisoned, or if it could not be garrisoned, then it no longer provides cover.

Starve Rolls: The attacker rolls a dice for each unit in the defender’s army, subtracting 1 from the roll if the unit is a HERO and applying the modifier from the Siege table (if there is one). On a 5+, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.

Tunnel Rolls: The attacker and the defender each roll a dice. The attacker applies the modifier from the Siege table to their roll (if there is one). If the attacker’s roll is higher, they have completed a tunnel. They can pick 1 HERO that does not have a mount and is not a MONSTER, and 2 other units that do not have mounts and are not MONSTERS, to send into the tunnel.

Units sent into the tunnel are removed from the battlefield. At the start of any of the attacker’s movement phases, all of the units sent into the tunnel can be set up on the battlefield. They must be set up more than 3" from all enemy units and within 3" of each other. This counts as their move for that movement phase.

Coalition of Death

Broken Realms: Be’lakor is not simply a tale of two forces set against one another. There are many factions involved, each with their own agendas. At crucial points in the story, some of these factions join forces with each other in epic confrontations – the Coalition of Death rules let you fight these battles on the tabletop.

One of the quickest ways to arrange a multiplayer game is for two or more players to join up and fight as a team. The Age of Sigmar is, after all, an age of grand alliances, and the Coalition of Death rules in this section are a great representation of this. Every new alliance brings with it a host of fresh challenges, from making the most of army composition by selecting complementary forces, to seeing that the armies fight in a mutually supportive manner.

COALITION OF DEATH RULES
A Coalition of Death battle is fought between two sides, each consisting of a team of players. All of the players in the same team combine their models and units into a single force, and must try to defeat the opposing team’s combined army.

To play a Coalition of Death game, you must have three or more players. The battle can be fought using any of the battleplans for Warhammer Age of Sigmar – all you need to do is split the players into teams, with each team taking one side in the forthcoming battle. Two of the battleplans on the following pages are designed for use with these Coalition of Death rules.

The Armies
Split the players into two teams, using any method you prefer. The two teams can be made up of different numbers of players. Each of the players then chooses an army as described in the core rules. Each player commands the models they have provided to the coalition, and is allowed to decide what they do, how they move and so on, and they make all of the dice rolls for their own units. Any command abilities a player uses will only affect the units in their own army, not the rest of the coalition. Despite this, the armies belonging to the players on the same team are treated as a combined force during set-up and during the battle.

Generals and Warlords
Each player picks a general for their army as normal. You must also pick one player from each coalition to be the warlord. This is often the player fielding the largest force. If, at any time during the game, the coalition cannot decide in what order to carry out actions, then the warlord has final say on the order of events. In addition, if a dice needs to be rolled for the whole team, the warlord makes that dice roll. Finally, any victory conditions from a battleplan that apply to an army general only apply to the warlord’s general unless specifically noted otherwise.

Fighting the Battle
Instead of each player taking a turn during a Coalition of Death game, each team takes a turn. The teams’ warlords roll off against each other to see which team has the first turn each round. Where individual players would normally alternate taking actions, the teams alternate taking actions, with each player in the team being allowed to carry out their actions. For example, in the combat phase, each player on one team can attack with one of their units, then each player on the other team, and so on.

The same principle applies during set-up. For example, if you are fighting a battle where the players take it in turns to set up units, then in a Coalition of Death battle, the teams would take turns to set up, with each player in a coalition setting up a unit when it is their side’s turn to do so. Finally, it is worth noting that attempts to unbind a spell are limited to one attempt per team, rather than one attempt for each player on the team. There is only ever one chance to unbind a successfully cast spell!

Battleplan

Defenders of the Genesis Gate

The Stormcast survivors of the illfated assault upon the Eightpoints were forced to flee to the safety of the Genesis Gate. As long as this Arcway was in the hands of the Hallowed Knights, disaster could be prevented from becoming catastrophe. The defence fell to two chambers of the Hallowed Knights, commanded by the famous Lord-Celestant Gardus Steel Soul. The gate was heavily fortified, but the enemy force arrayed against the Stormcasts was formidable indeed.

SIEGE WARFARE
Use the Siege Warfare rules.

Designer’s Note: The defender must use Citadel Woods for their stronghold if they are available.

REALMS OF BATTLE
This battle uses the rules for The Genesis Gate, Ghyran.

THE ARMIES
One player is the attacker. Their opponent is the defender.

Attacker’s Army
The attacker must use a Nurgle army. It must consist of the following units and warscroll battalion:
Invidian Plaguehost
• 16 other NURGLE units

Defender’s Army
The defender must use a Hallowed Knights army. It must consist of the following units:
Lord-Celestant Gardus Steel Soul
• 1 Lord-Castellant (Lorrus Grymn)
• 8 other STORMCAST ETERNAL units
• Up to 12 SERAPHON allied units (see ‘The Seraphon’, below).

Unit Selection
The allied units and ‘other’ units in each army must each conform to one of the types in the following list. You can double the size of a unit if you wish, but it then counts as 2 choices instead of 1.

Regular Unit: A unit of up to 10 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 1.

Elite Unit: A unit of up to 5 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 2 or 3.

Guard Unit: A unit of up to 3 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 4 or 5.

Champion: A HERO with a Wounds characteristic of 8 or less.

SET-UP
First, the defender sets up their fortress. Next, three different terrain features in the defender’s territory are picked to be the attacker’s siege targets: the attacker picks the first terrain feature, the defender picks the second, and the attacker picks the third. The armies can now be set up.

The defender must set up their army first. All of the SERAPHON units must be set up in reserve and will arrive during the battle. The rest of their units can be set up anywhere wholly within their territory.

The attacker sets up their army second. Their units must be set up wholly within their territory, more than 6" from the defender’s territory.

THE SERAPHON
The defender rolls 2D6 at the start of each of their turns to see if the Seraphon arrive. Add the battle round number to the score. On a roll of 11 or more, the Seraphon arrive. The defender rolls another dice. On a 1-3 the Seraphon arrive from the narrow table edge to the right of the defender’s territory. On a 4-6, they arrive from the table edge to the left of the defender’s territory (see map).

At the start of their next movement phase, the defender must set up all of their SERAPHON units wholly within 9" of the table edge they arrived from and more than 3" from any enemy units. This counts as their move for that movement phase.

At the start of the defender’s next turn, all SERAPHON units that are on the battlefield are removed from the battlefield – they have moved through the Genesis Gate.

SIEGE TARGETS
A siege target is controlled by the last player to have any models in or on the terrain feature. If both players have models in or on the terrain feature, it is controlled by the defender.

BATTLE LENGTH
The battle lasts for 5 battle rounds.

GLORIOUS VICTORY
The attacker wins a major victory if they control all three siege targets. The defender wins a major victory if the attacker controls fewer than two siege targets. If the attacker controls two siege targets, use the tiebreaker below.

Tiebreaker
Each player adds up the number of enemy units that were destroyed during the battle, excluding units that were added to the armies after the battle started. Double-sized units count as 2 units instead of 1. Do not include SERAPHON units that moved through the Genesis Gate. If one player has the higher total, they win a minor victory. If neither player has the higher total, the battle is a draw.


Battleplan

Stampede of Scales

Following his defeat at the hands of the Serephon, the Eater of Tomes’ Silver Tower crashed back to earth in Chamon. Although terribly damaged, the Gaunt Summoner knew he could still restore it, given enough time. Yet even as he began to work his sorcery upon the wreckage of his stronghold, he heard a terribly familiar sound: a distant, primal roar, and the thunder of stampeding beasts.

THE ARMIES
One player is the Tzeentch player. Their opponent is the Seraphon player.

Tzeentch Army
The Tzeentch player must use an Eternal Conflagration army. It must consist of the following units and warscroll battalion:
• 1 Gaunt Summoner on Disc of Tzeentch (the Eater of Tomes)
Atra’zan’s Blazing Cavalcade
• 14 other TZEENTCH DAEMON units

Seraphon Army

The Celestial Stampede
• 12 other SERAPHON units

Unit Selection
The ‘other’ units in each army must each conform to one of the types in the following list. You can double the size of a unit if you wish, but it then counts as 2 choices instead of 1.

Regular Unit: A unit of up to 10 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 1.

Elite Unit: A unit of up to 5 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 2 or 3.

Guard Unit: A unit of up to 3 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 4 or 5.

Champion: A HERO with a Wounds characteristic of 8 or less.

Stampede Unit (Seraphon player only): An Engine of the Gods, Stegadon, Stegadon with Skink Chief, or Bastiladon. Engines of the Gods count as 3 choices instead of 1; the rest count as 2 choices instead of 1.

SET-UP
The Tzeentch player must set up the Eater of Tomes within 3" of the centre of the narrow battlefield edge that adjoins their territory (see map).

The players then alternate setting up units one at a time, starting with the Seraphon player. Players must set up units wholly within their territory and more than 20" from enemy territory.

Continue to set up units until both players have set up their armies. If one player finishes first, their opponent must set up the rest of the units in their army, one after another.

FIRE AGAINST FURY
All HORRORS units count as being part of the Atra’zan’s Blazing Cavalcade warscroll battalion, and Stampede units are treated as being part of the Celestial Stampede warscroll battalion, in addition to the other units already in those battalions.

THE UNMAKING RAY
The Eater of Tomes is not allowed to move, cast spells, use command abilities or attack. However, any wounds inflicted on the Eater of Tomes are negated unless they are inflicted by the Lance of Cosmic Power ability (see the Celestial Stampede).

BATTLE LENGTH
The battle lasts for 5 battle rounds or until The Eater of Tomes is slain.

GLORIOUS VICTORY
If the Eater of Tomes is slain, the Seraphon player wins a major victory. If the Eater of Tomes has not suffered any wounds at the end of the battle, the Tzeentch player wins a major victory. In any other circumstances, use the tiebreaker below.

Tiebreaker
Each player counts up the number of enemy units that have been destroyed. Each reinforced unit and each MONSTER counts as two units. The Seraphon player adds to their total the number of wounds currently allocated to the Eater of Tomes. The player with the higher total wins a minor victory. If neither player has the higher total, the battle is a draw.


Battleplan

In the Court of Death

At the heart of Sylontum lay the Sanctum of Anguish.

The Sorrowmourn Choir is set up in reserve and will enter as described below.

FIRST TURN
The Lady Olynder player takes the first turn in the first battle round.

THE PALACE GATE
Units cannot move on sanctum territory until the gate has been breached (see map).

At the start of their second and subsequent hero phases, if BE’LAKOR is within 3" of the gate objective marker, the Be’lakor player can attempt to breach the gate. If they do so, they must roll 2D6. Add 3 to the roll if Be’lakor is within 3" of the gate objective marker, and add 1 to the roll for each TZEENTCH, NURGLE and SLAANESH WIZARD within 3" of the gate objective marker. If the roll is 9 or more, the gate is breached.

Once the gate is breached, units are free to move into sanctum territory.

Battleplan

The Gate of White Gold

Of those unstable realmgates that Be’lakor had ordered to be assaulted, only one remained intact: the Gate of White Gold, located amidst the ruined city of Prosperia. Be’lakor would suffer no more delays. The Gate of White Gold would fall, even if he must negotiate with the most unsavoury allies in order to see it done.

Battleplan

Disaster at Armsgate Zul

Lord-Castellant Lorrus Grymn of the Hallowed Knights had taken charge of the defence of Armsgate Zul, shoring up the breached wallfort with retinues Liberators. Be’lakor was confident that the Stormcast Eternals posed little threat to his vast Legion, but still he did not care to take any chances. He called forth Atra’zan the Immolator, for he had a task in mind for the flame-obsessed Herald…

The allied units and ‘other’ units in each army must each conform to one of the types in the following list. You can double the size of a unit if you wish, but it then counts as 2 choices instead of 1.

Regular Unit: A unit of up to 10 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 1.

Elite Unit: A unit of up to 5 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 2 or 3.

Guard Unit: A unit of up to 3 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 4 or 5.

Champion: A HERO with a Wounds characteristic of 8 or less.

SET-UP
First, the defender sets up their fortress. Then, they set up their army. Their army is split into two contingents: the garrison and the reinforcements. There must be at least one reinforcements unit for each garrison unit. The army’s general must be in the garrison, and all CITIES OF SIGMAR units must be in the reinforcements.

Before the battle, the defender can only set up their garrison units. All of their reinforcements units must be set up in reserve and will arrive during the battle as described below. The defender must set up their units wholly within their territory.

The attacker sets up their army second. They must set up their units wholly within their territory and more than 6" from the defender’s territory.

REINFORCEMENTS
From the second battle round, at the start of each of their movement phases, the defender must roll a dice for each of their reinforcements units. On a 5+, that unit arrives on the battlefield.

When a unit arrives, all of its models must be set up within 6" of the table edge that is wholly within the Duardin Armouries area, as shown on the map, and more than 9" from any enemy units. This counts as their move for that movement phase. Set up the unit before rolling to see if the next reinforcements unit arrives.

THE ARMOURIES
At the end of each of their turns, the attacker must roll 2D6. If the roll is less than or equal to the number of models from Atra’zan’s Blazing Cavalcade that are within 6" of the Munitions Store objective marker, then it explodes and the game ends. Atra’zan the Immolator counts as 7 models.

BATTLE LENGTH
The battle lasts for 5 battle rounds or until the Munitions Store explodes.

GLORIOUS VICTORY
The attacker wins a major victory if the Munitions Store explodes. The defender wins a major victory if the Munitions Store does not explode and all of the units in Atra’zan’s Blazing Cavalcade have been destroyed. In any other circumstances, use the tiebreaker below.

Tiebreaker
Each player adds up the number of enemy units that were destroyed during the battle, excluding units that were added to the armies after the battle started. Double-sized units count as 2 units instead of 1. If one player has the higher total, they win a minor victory. If neither player has the higher total, the battle is a draw.


Battleplan

On Wings of Iron

With cannons firing and endrins blazing, the Kharadron Overlords arrived to lift the Siege of Vindicarum. After a long and intense debate, the historic Second Conference of Madralta had ended in consensus: the sky-ports would rescue the God-King’s armies from their grim predicament, and, ancestors willing, earn themselves a tidy sum in the process.

COALITION OF DEATH
Use the Coalition of Death rules. This battleplan is designed to be played by 4 players in 2 coalitions.

REALMS OF BATTLE
This battle uses the rules for Prosperis, Chamon.

THE ARMIES
One coalition are the Forces of Chaos. The other coalition are the Forces of Order. One player in the Forces of Chaos is the Be’lakor player and the other is the Tzeentch player. One player in the Forces of Order is the Stormcast Eternals player and the other is the Kharadron Overlords player.

Be’lakor’s Army
The Be’lakor player must use a Legion of the First Prince army. It must consist of the following units:
Be’lakor, the Dark Master
• 16 other DAEMON units*

*Must include at least 1 KHORNE, 1 NURGLE and 1 SLAANESH unit.

Designer’s Note: The Barak-Zilfin army represents just one part of the huge Kharadron armada sent to relieve Vindicarum.

Unit Selection
The ‘other’ units in each army must each conform to one of the types in the following list. You can double the size of a unit if you wish, but it then counts as 2 choices instead of 1.

Regular Unit: A unit of up to 10 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 1.

Elite Unit: A unit of up to 5 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 2 or 3.

Guard Unit: A unit of up to 3 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 4 or 5.

Champion: A HERO with a Wounds characteristic of 8 or less.

Armada Unit (Kharadron Overlords player only): An Arkanaut Ironclad, Arkanaut Frigate or Grundstok Gunhauler. Each Arkanaut Ironclad counts as 5 choices instead of 1, and each Arkanaut Frigate counts as 2 choices instead of 1.

SET-UP
The teams’ warlords roll off. Starting with the winning team, the teams alternate picking a territory and setting up one of their armies wholly within that territory and more than 9" from any enemy units. Each army must be set up in a different territory.

Players can set up any of their units in reserve instead of setting them up on the battlefield. Each reserve unit can be set up on the battlefield at the end of its coalition’s second, third or fourth movement phase. Reserve units must be set up wholly within the territory that was picked for their army, wholly within 9" of the battlefield edge and more than 9" from any enemy units. At the end of the fourth battle round, units still in reserve are destroyed.

GROMTHI
At the start of each combat phase, the Kharadron Overlords player can roll a dice if Be’lakor is within 6" of any SKYFARER models that are not HEROES. If they do so, on a 6, Be’lakor is removed from play but is not slain. On a 1-5, the closest SKYFARER model to Be’lakor that is not a HERO is slain (if several are equally close, randomly determine which is slain).

BATTLE LENGTH
The battle lasts for 5 battle rounds.

GLORIOUS VICTORY
If Be’lakor is on the battlefield at the end of the battle and the Forces of Chaos have scored more victory points (see below), the Forces of Chaos win a major victory. If Be’lakor is not on the battlefield at the end of the battle and the Forces of Order have scored more victory points, the Forces of Order win a major victory. In any other circumstances, the coalition that scored the most victory points wins a minor victory. If neither coalition scored more victory points, the battle is a draw.

VICTORY POINTS
Each coalition scores victory points as follows:

- 1 victory point is scored each time an enemy model that has a Wounds characteristic of 10 or more is slain.

- 1 victory point is scored each time a reinforced enemy unit is destroyed.

- 1 victory point is scored at the end of a coalition’s turn for each objective in friendly territory that they control.

- D3 victory points are scored at the end of a coalition’s turn for each objective in enemy territory that they control.


Kragnos

Millennia had passed since Kragnos’ incarceration within the great Ghurish peak. Though he had been rendered comatose by the spell that bound him, on some level, his destructive impulses could not be quenched. In his slumber, he had dreamed of wreaking havoc on all who sought to escape his mace, smashing cities and stamping fissures in the earth to tumble the works of those who would oppose him.

This section of Broken Realms: Be’lakor contains exciting new rules for open and narrative play games. You can use the rules in this section to recreate the battles that were fought as Kragnos rampaged along the Coast of Tusks.

Campaign Rules

This book includes six battleplans, each based on a critical battle leading up to the Siege of Excelsis. The rules on this page allow you to play a series of linked games that recreates what happened as the fate of the City of Secrets hung in the balance.

THE ARMIES
This campaign is fought between two players. One player is the Order player and the other player is the Destruction player. The Order player must be able to field the following armies from the following battleplans:
The Rite of Life: Sylvaneth Army
They Came From Below: Knights Excelsior Army
Clash of Giants: Kragnos Army*
Last Flight of the Scarlet Scourge: Sky Battalions Army
Dark Heart: Excelsis Army
Of Gods and Monsters: Order Army

The Destruction player must be able to field the following armies:
The Rite of Life: Beastmen Army
They Came From Below: Skaven Army
Clash of Giants: Greenskins Army*
Last Flight of the Scarlet Scourge: Destruction Army
Dark Heart: Slaanesh Army
Of Gods and Monsters: Destruction Army

*Clash of Giants is a ‘civil war’ with Destruction armies fighting on both sides. If the Order player has models in their collection that allow them to field a Kragnos army, they should use those models. If they do not, the Destruction player should allow the Order player to use their models for this battle.

THE BATTLES
The players must fight each battle in the order in which they appear in this book.

CONSEQUENCES OF BATTLE
Any named characters that are slain in a battle are assumed to have been hurt but not killed, and they will be fully recovered in time for the next battle unless noted otherwise. This aside, the result of an earlier battle may have an impact on subsequent battles that are fought, as explained below. If you are allowed to add units to your army, they must conform to any Unit Selection restrictions for the battleplan being used.

The Rite of Life/They Came From Below/Clash of Giants: No changes.

Last Flight of the Scarlet Scourge: If Gordrakk was slain in Clash of Giants, he does not take part in this battle. Reduce the number of GYROCOPTERS and GYROBOMBERS units in the Sky Battalions Army from 4 units to 3 if the Order player lost They Came From Below.

Dark Heart: If The White Reaper was slain in They Came From Below, he does not take part in this battle. Add 1 STORMCAST ETERNALS LIBERATORS unit of 5 models to the Excelsis Army if the Order player won a major victory in They Came From Below, and add another STORMCAST ETERNALS LIBERATORS unit of 5 models to the Excelsis Army if the Order player won a major victory in Last Flight of the Scarlet Scourge.

Of Gods and Monsters: Add 1 unit to the Destruction Army for each major victory the Destruction player has won in the campaign. Reduce the number of units in the Destruction Army by 1 for each major victory the Order player has won in the campaign.

CAMPAIGN VICTORY
If one player is victorious in The Rite of Life, Clash of Giants and Of Gods and Monsters, they win a total campaign victory. If one player is victorious in The Rite of Life and Of Gods and Monsters, they win a strategic campaign victory. In any other circumstances, the victor in Of Gods and Monsters wins a tactical campaign victory.

Alternative Armies
If you don’t have all of the units or armies needed to fight a campaign, just substitute suitable units that you do have for the ones that you don’t. It’s up to you to decide what you think would be appropriate replacements!

Realms of Battle

Below you will find new set of Realms of Battle rules that allow you to fight battles set in the region of the Mortal Realms described in the narrative section of Broken Realms: Kragnos. These rules are suitable for narrative and open play games but are not intended for matched play.

Realm of Battle: The Coast of Tusks, Ghur

REALMSPHERE MAGIC
Wildform: The wizard transforms their allies into swift-moving bestial forms.
Wildform has a casting value of 5. If successfully cast, pick 1 friendly unit within 12" of the caster that is visible to them. Add 2 to run and charge rolls for that unit until your next hero phase.

REALMSCAPE FEATURES
The Desolate Wilds: From the hinterland mists come all manner of greenskin tribes, each hungering for war.
Add 1" to the Move characteristic and 1 to the Bravery characteristic of all DESTRUCTION units. In addition, if you have an Orruk Warclans Big Waaagh! army, you receive an extra D6 Waaagh! points at the start of your first hero phase.

The Clawing Sea: The Coast of Tusks is bedevilled by oceanic monsters that are drawn to the land in search of easy prey. Even the aelves cannot truly tame these fearsome creatures.
At the end of each battle round, the players roll off. The winner can set up a Wild Kharibdyss. Use the Kharibdyss warscroll for the Wild Kharibdyss, but do not include the Handlers on the warscroll and do not use the Quick With The Lash ability. Wild Kharibdysses are not part of either army. A Wild Kharibdyss must be set up within 7" of the battlefield edge and more than 9" from all models from either army.

Wild Kharibdysses choose their prey at the start of each battle round. Their prey for that battle round will be the army that has a unit closest to them. For the rest of that battle round, the Wild Kharibdyss joins the opposing army. If both armies have a unit equally close to a Wild Kharibdyss, roll off to determine who chooses the Wild Kharibdyss’s prey. Wild Kharibdysses will not choose each other as their prey.

Note that the prey can change each battle round, as Wild Kharibdysses will ‘swap sides’ depending on which army has a unit closest to them. Also note that a Wild Kharibdyss can attack any unit in their prey’s army, not just the closest unit, and it cannot itself be attacked or charged by units from the army it has joined.

REALM ARTEFACT
Glimmering: Flinders of the Spear of Mallus are traded as ‘glimmerings’, each yielding visions of events yet to come.
Once per turn, before you make a hit or wound roll for an attack made by the bearer, a save roll for an attack that targets the bearer, or a run or charge roll for the bearer, you can say that you will foretell the result of the roll. If you do so, you must choose the result of the roll. The result chosen for a D6 roll must be a whole number from 1 to 6, and the result chosen for a 2D6 roll must be a whole number from 2 to 12. The result cannot be re-rolled, but any modifiers are applied to it as normal.

Battleplan

The Rite of Life

The defeat of Nagash in distant Hysh had sent ripples of causality across the realms. In Ghyran, the Everqueen Alarielle was poised to capitalise on this with a grand resurgence, triggering a cascade of consequences both glorious and dire. Opposing her in the stinking, knee-deep swampland were mould-skinned beastmen, their untidy manes matted into slabs that bounced on their shoulders as they ran. Carried by four hulking Ghorgons was the Dirgehorn – that Nurgle-fouled Ghyranite artefact torn from the skull of a godbeast to sound the death of nations, held together with sutures of cankerous flesh to give full voice to its mind-shredding bellow.

THE ARMIES
One player is the Sylvaneth player. Their opponent is the Beastmen player.

Sylvaneth Army
The Sylvaneth player must use a Sylvaneth army. It must consist of the following units and warscroll battalions:
Alarielle the Everqueen
Drycha’s Spitegrove
Lords of the Clan with 1 Treelord and 2 Treelord Ancients
• 1 Warsong Revenant
• 6 other SYLVANETH units

Beastmen Army
The Beastmen player must use a Beasts of Chaos army that has Ghorraghan Khai as its general. It must consist of the following units, warscroll battalion and endless spell:
The Butcher-herd
• 12 other BEASTS OF CHAOS units
• 1 Doomblast Dirgehorn

Unit Selection
The ‘other’ units in each army must each conform to one of the types in the following list. You can double the size of a unit if you wish, but it then counts as 2 choices instead of 1.

Regular Unit: A unit of up to 10 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 1.

Elite Unit: A unit of up to 5 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 2 or 3.

Guard Unit: A unit of up to 3 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 4 or 5.

Champion: A HERO with a Wounds characteristic of 8 or less.

SET-UP
The Warsong Revenant starts the battle in reserve and will arrive as described below.

The Beastmen player must set up The Butcher-herd and the Doomblast Dirgehorn wholly within their territory and wholly within 12" of the middle of the battlefield, with the Doomblast Dirgehorn set up as described below.

The players then alternate setting up units one at a time, starting with the Sylvaneth player. Players must set up units wholly within their territory and more than 9" from enemy territory.

Continue to set up units until both players have set up their armies. If one player finishes first, their opponent must set up the rest of the units in their army, one after another.

THE DIRGEHORN
The Doomblast Dirgehorn endless spell starts the battle already cast and on the battlefield. It must be set up within 3" of the Ghorgon from The Butcher-herd warscroll battalion. It cannot be dispelled except as described below.

The Ghorgon and the Doomblast Dirgehorn are treated as a single model that uses the Ghorgon’s warscroll and has the abilities from the Doomblast Dirgehorn’s warscroll. The Doomblast Dirgehorn must remain within 1" of the Ghorgon. If the Ghorgon is slain, the Doomblast Dirgehorn is dispelled. In addition, the Doomblast Dirgehorn is dispelled if it ends a move more than 12" from the middle of the battlefield.

THE WARSONG REVENANT
The Warsong Revenant is set up after the Doomblast Dirgehorn is dispelled, within 12" of Alarielle the Everqueen.

BATTLE LENGTH
The battle lasts either for 5 battle rounds or until Alarielle the Everqueen is slain.

GLORIOUS VICTORY
If Alarielle the Everqueen has been slain, the Beastmen player wins a major victory. If Alarielle the Everqueen has not been slain, each player adds up the number of enemy units that were destroyed during the battle, excluding any units that were added to the armies after the battle started. Double-sized units count as 2 units instead of 1, and MONSTERS count as 3 units instead of 1.

If the Sylvaneth player has the higher total, they win a major victory if the Doomblast Dirgehorn was dispelled and a minor victory if it was not dispelled. If the Beastmen player has the higher total, they win a minor victory if the Doomblast Dirgehorn was not dispelled, and the battle is a draw if it was dispelled.


Battleplan

They Came From Below

Excelsis echoed to a thousand screams as the sun set. The assault came not from within, where the strife in the streets had grown to violence, nor from without, where the walls were heavily defended in anticipation of a greenskin attack. Instead, when the eyes of the city’s defenders were elsewhere, it came from below. Across the dockyards, mushroom clouds of green smoke blossomed in the wake of earringing explosions, and entire swathes of the street toppled into the sewers to expose the horribly glowing portals below. Gnawholes, the clustered portals were called, splits in the fabric of the realms themselves from which the skaven launched their invasions.

STREETS OF DEATH
Use the Streets of Death rules.

THE ARMIES
One player is the Skaven player. Their opponent is the Knights Excelsior player.

Doralia ven Denst (Cities of Sigmar allied unit)
Galen ven Denst (Cities of Sigmar allied unit)
• 10 other STORMCAST ETERNALS units

The ‘other’ units in each army must each conform to one of the types in the following list. You can double the size of a unit if you wish, but it then counts as 2 choices instead of 1.

Regular Unit: A unit of up to 10 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 1.

Elite Unit: A unit of up to 5 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 2 or 3.

Guard Unit: A unit of up to 3 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 4 or 5.

Champion: A HERO with a Wounds characteristic of 8 or less.

THE BATTLEFIELD
Set up the 3 Gnawholes as shown on the map.

This battle is fought on the docks of Excelsis, and appropriate terrain features should be used to represent this.

SET-UP
The players alternate setting up units one at a time, starting with the Skaven player. Players must set up units wholly within their territory. Continue to set up units until both players have set up their armies. If one player finishes first, their opponent must set up the rest of the units in their army, one after another.

THE GNAWHOLES
The Knights Excelsior player can treat each Gnawhole as an enemy unit when picking the target of an attack or when picking a unit to suffer mortal wounds. The Gnawhole must be in range of the attack or the ability or spell inflicting mortal wounds. Gnawholes are not treated as units for any other purposes.

Each Gnawhole has a Wounds characteristic of 6 and a Save characteristic of 3+. Once 6 wounds have been allocated to a Gnawhole, it is destroyed and removed from play.

THE WHITE REAPER
The White Reaper is a named character that is a Lord-Veritant. The following special rules apply to the White Reaper:
  • You cannot use the Faithful Gryph-hound ability for the White Reaper.
  • Roll a dice each time you allocate a wound or mortal wound to the White Reaper. On a 4+, that wound or mortal wound is negated.
  • Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of the White Reaper’s Judgement Blade.
  • Add 2 to the roll that determines whether the White Reaper’s Sanction ability inflicts any mortal wounds.

BATTLE LENGTH
The battle lasts either for 5 battle rounds or until the third Gnawhole is destroyed and removed from play.

GLORIOUS VICTORY
Count the number of Gnawholes that were destroyed during the battle and consult the table below to determine the outcome of the battle.

UP, UP AND AWAY
After the Sky Battalions player makes a normal move with a friendly unit, they can say that the unit is flying up, up and away. If they do so, until their next movement phase, that unit cannot charge, and when measuring the distance between that unit and another unit in the shooting phase and the combat phase to determine whether either is in range of an attack, add 6".

YOU CAN’T GET AWAY FROM ME!
At the start of the combat phase, the Destruction player can pick 1 friendly model that is within 3" of any enemy units that are flying up, up and away and roll a dice. Add 2 to the roll if the friendly model is a MONSTER.

Dark Heart

Galen and Doralia ven Denst fought their way towards the canker at Excelsis’s heart. With them came the White Reaper, for he too had seen the dire cavalcade of Slaaneshi daemons from afar and felt a great disquiet that only tackling them in person would diminish. The trio entered the Conclave Hall to see that battle still raged in the palace. Galen and Doralia levelled their weapons, sending nullstone bullet and runeinscribed stake hurtling across the room to strike the daemon giants in their backs, liberating the Grand Matriarch Yarga-Sjuhan and her honour guard from the spells that enthralled them. Almost immediately, violent combat erupted in the gore-drenched hall.

  • Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of the White Reaper’s Judgement Blade.
  • Add 2 to the roll that determines whether the White Reaper’s Sanction ability inflicts any mortal wounds.

GRAND MATRIARCH
The Honour Guard is Yarga-Sjuhan’s retinue for the purposes of the Honoured Retinue battle trait, and Yarga-Sjuhan gains the Loyal Shields ability (see Battletome: Cities of Sigmar).

AMBERBONE NECKLACES
Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of weapons used by the Honour Guard in the first battle round, and add 2 to run and charge rolls for the Honour Guard in the first battle round.

SANCTUM
Neither player can add extra models to their army or return slain models to a unit during this battle.

BATTLE LENGTH
The battle lasts until all of the models in one of the armies have been slain.

GLORIOUS VICTORY
The player with any models remaining on the battlefield at the end of the battle is the winner. If the winner has at least 2 HEROES on the battlefield at the end of the battle, they win a major victory. Otherwise, they win a minor victory. In the unlikely event that neither side has any models remaining on the battlefield, the battle is a draw.


Battleplan

Of Gods and Monsters

As a long day of battle raged on into night, it was becoming clear that the intervention of the Stormcast Eternals would not be enough. At the breaches, at the harbour, even from the tunnels below the city, greenskins were breaking through to run pell-mell through the streets. Excelsis’s lifespan could be measured in hours at most. Then, from the mists of the harbour, a hundred tall sails emerged into view. Morathi-Khaine had come, and from the darkest quarter, Excelsis had been given hope anew.

STREETS OF DEATH
Use the Streets of Death rules.

THE ARMIES
One player is the Order player. Their opponent is the Destruction player.

Order Army
The Order player must use the following army. This army includes CITIES OF SIGMAR units, DAUGHTERS OF KHAINE units, SERAPHON units and STORMCAST ETERNALS units. It does not belong to a specific faction and does not have any allegiance abilities, and it must consist of the following units:
Lord Kroak
Morathi-Khaine
The Shadow Queen
• 12 SCOURGE PRIVATEERS units
• 2 MELUSAI units
• 12 STORMCAST ETERNALS units

Destruction Army
The Destruction player must use the following army. This army includes ORRUK WARCLANS units, GLOOMSPITE GITZ units and SONS OF BEHEMAT units. It does not belong to a specific faction and does not have any allegiance abilities, and it must consist of the following units:
Kragnos, the End of Empires
• 1 MEGA-GARGANT
• 1 Mancrusher Gargants unit of up to 3 models
• 12 ORRUK WARCLANS units
• 8 GLOOMSPITE GITZ units

Unit Selection
The SCOURGE PRIVATEERS, STORMCAST ETERNALS, ORRUK WARCLANS and GLOOMSPITE GITZ units in each army must each conform to one of the types in the following list. You can double the size of a unit if you wish, but it then counts as 2 choices instead of 1.

Regular Unit: A unit of up to 10 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 1.

Elite Unit: A unit of up to 5 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 2 or 3.

Guard Unit: A unit of up to 3 models, each with a Wounds characteristic of 4 or 5.

Champion: A HERO with a Wounds characteristic of 8 or less.

THE BATTLEFIELD
This battle is fought on the streets of Excelsis, and appropriate terrain features should be used to represent this.

SET-UP
The battlefield is divided into 16 areas as shown on the map. Lord Kroak, Kragnos, Morathi-Khaine and the Shadow Queen are set up first in the centre of the areas marked for them on the map. The players alternate setting up their remaining units one at a time, starting with the Destruction player. STORMCAST ETERNALS units must be set up wholly within Excelsis territory, SCOURGE PRIVATEERS and DAUGHTERS OF KHAINE units wholly within Daughters of Khaine territory, and DESTRUCTION units wholly within Destruction territory. All units must be set up more than 6" from any enemy units.

Continue to set up units until both players have set up their armies. If one player finishes first, their opponent must set up the rest of the units in their army, one after another.

BANISHMENT
At the end of each battle round, the Order player can attempt to banish Kragnos. In order to do so, all of the following criteria must be met:
  • Morathi-Khaine and Lord Kroak are within 3" of each other, and neither model is within 3" of any enemy units.
  • Kragnos is within 3" of an enemy unit.
To attempt to banish Kragnos, the Order player must roll a dice. On a 2+, Kragnos is removed from play but does not count as having been slain.

BATTLE LENGTH
The battle either lasts for 5 battle rounds or until Kragnos is slain.

GLORIOUS VICTORY
If Kragnos has been slain, the Order player wins a major victory. In any other circumstances, each player adds up the number of enemy units that were destroyed during the battle. Double-sized units count as 2 units instead of 1; Lord Kroak, Morathi-Khaine, the Shadow Queen and MEGA-GARGANTS count as 5 models instead of 1, and any other MONSTERS count as 2 units instead of 1.

If the Destruction player has the higher total and Kragnos was not banished, they win a major victory. Otherwise, the player with the higher total wins a minor victory. If both players have the same total, the battle is a draw.

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.
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).
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.
14.1 Allocating Wounds
Wounds are allocated to the models in a unit 1 wound at a time. You can allocate the wounds caused to your units as you see fit. However, once you have allocated a wound to a model, you cannot allocate wounds to other models in the unit until that model is slain (see 14.2). If a unit is destroyed, all wounds that remain to be allocated to the unit are negated and have no effect.
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.
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.

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.
22.3.1 Mounts, Companions and Crew
Sometimes the description on a warscroll will say whether the models in the unit have mounts, companions or a crew. When a model attacks, its mount, companions and crew attack too, and when the model is removed from play, its mount, companions and crew are removed too. For rules purposes, companions and crew are treated in the same manner as mounts.
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.
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.

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.
22.3.1 Mounts, Companions and Crew
Sometimes the description on a warscroll will say whether the models in the unit have mounts, companions or a crew. When a model attacks, its mount, companions and crew attack too, and when the model is removed from play, its mount, companions and crew are removed too. For rules purposes, companions and crew are treated in the same manner as mounts.
27.3.3 Artefacts of Power
Each time you take an artefact of power enhancement, you can pick 1 artefact of power and give it to a HERO in your army. A HERO cannot have more than 1 artefact of power. An army cannot include duplicates of the same artefact of power.

Most rules for artefacts of power refer to the bearer. The bearer is the model to which an artefact of power has been given (see section 27.5.2 for some examples).
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.
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.

3.1 Reserve Units and Summoned Units
Sometimes a rule will allow you to set up a unit in a location other than the battlefield as a reserve unit. A unit that is added to your army once the battle is underway is called a summoned unit.

When you set up a reserve unit, either during deployment or once the battle is underway, you must tell your opponent that the unit is in reserve and keep it to one side instead of placing it on the battlefield. At the start of the fourth battle round, units that are still in reserve are destroyed. Units cannot cast spells or use abilities while they are in reserve unless the spell or ability specifically says it can be used by reserve units.

Reserve units are picked as part of your army before the battle begins, while summoned units are units added to your army once the battle is underway. Models that have been removed from play can be used as part of a summoned unit.

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.
8.1 Normal Move
When you pick a unit to make a normal move, you can move each model in that unit a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move characteristic shown on the unit’s warscroll. Units cannot move within 3" of enemy units when making a normal move.
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.

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.
8.3 Run
When you pick a unit to run, you must make a run roll for the unit by rolling a dice. Add the run roll to the Move characteristic of all models in the unit until the end of that phase. You can then move each model in that unit a distance in inches equal to or less than their modified Move characteristic. No part of a run can be within 3" of an enemy unit. You cannot shoot or attempt a charge later in the turn with a unit that has run.
15.1 Battleshock Tests
You must make a battleshock roll for each friendly unit that has to take a battleshock test. To make a battleshock roll, roll a dice and add the number of models in the unit that were slain in that turn to the roll. If the battleshock roll is greater than the unit’s Bravery characteristic, the battleshock test has been failed. If the test is failed, for each point by which the battleshock roll exceeds the unit’s Bravery characteristic, 1 model in that unit must flee. You decide which models flee. A model that flees is removed from play.

If a slain model is returned to its unit in the same turn that it is slain, it still counts as having been slain in that battle round for the purposes of battleshock tests.

8.3 Run
When you pick a unit to run, you must make a run roll for the unit by rolling a dice. Add the run roll to the Move characteristic of all models in the unit until the end of that phase. You can then move each model in that unit a distance in inches equal to or less than their modified Move characteristic. No part of a run can be within 3" of an enemy unit. You cannot shoot or attempt a charge later in the turn with a unit that has run.
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.
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.

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.
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.

You cannot shoot or attempt a charge later in the turn with a unit that has run.
14.1 Allocating Wounds
Wounds are allocated to the models in a unit 1 wound at a time. You can allocate the wounds caused to your units as you see fit. However, once you have allocated a wound to a model, you cannot allocate wounds to other models in the unit until that model is slain (see 14.2). If a unit is destroyed, all wounds that remain to be allocated to the unit are negated and have no effect.
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.

You cannot shoot or attempt a charge later in the turn with a unit that has run.
17.1.1 Cover
A target unit is in cover if all of the models in the unit are wholly on a terrain feature or behind a terrain feature. Add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target a unit that is in cover. A unit that has a Wounds characteristic of 10 or more or that has made a charge move in the same turn does not receive the benefit of being in cover.
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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
8.3 Run
When you pick a unit to run, you must make a run roll for the unit by rolling a dice. Add the run roll to the Move characteristic of all models in the unit until the end of that phase. You can then move each model in that unit a distance in inches equal to or less than their modified Move characteristic. No part of a run can be within 3" of an enemy unit. You cannot shoot or attempt a charge later in the turn with a unit that has run.
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.

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).
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.

17.1.1 Cover
A target unit is in cover if all of the models in the unit are wholly on a terrain feature or behind a terrain feature. Add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target a unit that is in cover. A unit that has a Wounds characteristic of 10 or more or that has made a charge move in the same turn does not receive the benefit of being in cover.
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.

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.

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).
1.5.5 Dice Roll Modifiers
Sometimes a modifier will apply to a dice roll. Modifiers are applied after re-rolls. Rules that refer to an unmodified roll are referring to the dice roll after re-rolls have been made but before modifiers are applied. If a rule instructs you to pick or change a roll, do so after re-rolls are made but before modifiers are applied.

In most cases, modifiers are cumulative. However, some dice rolls, such as hit and wound rolls, will specify that the roll cannot be modified by more than +1 or -1. When this is the case, add up all the modifiers that apply, and if the total is more than +1 or -1, treat it as being either +1 or -1 as appropriate.

A target unit is in cover if all of the models in the unit are wholly on a terrain feature or behind a terrain feature. Add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target a unit that is in cover.

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.
22.3.1 Mounts, Companions and Crew
Sometimes the description on a warscroll will say whether the models in the unit have mounts, companions or a crew. When a model attacks, its mount, companions and crew attack too, and when the model is removed from play, its mount, companions and crew are removed too. For rules purposes, companions and crew are treated in the same manner as mounts.

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.

Wounds are allocated to the models in a unit 1 wound at a time. You can allocate the wounds caused to your units as you see fit. However, once you have allocated a wound to a model, you cannot allocate wounds to other models in the unit until that model is slain (see 14.2).
