Strength in Numbers: Skaven are not brave by nature, but do take courage from being in largepacks.
When a SKAVEN PESTILENS unit takes a battleshock test, add 2 instead of 1 to its Bravery characteristic for every 10 models in the unit.
Echoes of the GreatP lagues: Sometimes the prayers of Pestilens priests cause the effects of one of the Great Plagues to temporarily manifest upon the battlefield.
When a PESTILENS PRIEST successfully prays, and the dice roll for the prayer was a 6 before any modifiers were applied, you can pick one of the following Great Plagues to manifest as well as using one of the prayers on the PRIEST’S warscroll.
Each Great Plague can manifest once per battle, and no more than one can manifest per turn.
Redmaw Plague:The nearest enemy
HEROwithin 13″of the PRIESTis
infected with the Redmaw Plague.
If that HEROis within 3″of models
from its own army at the start of any
combat phase, and not within 3″of
any models from your army, then
it will attack its friends – treat that
HEROas a model from your army for
the rest of that combat phase.
The Neverplague:Add 1 to prayer
rolls for friendly PESTILENSPRIESTS
for the rest of the battle.
Bubonic Blightplague:The nearest
enemy unit within 13″of the
PRIESTis infected with the Bubonic
Blightplague. That unit suffers
D6 mortal wounds. If the unit is
destroyed when these wounds are
allocated, pick another enemy unit
within 6″of the last model to be
removed from the infected unit. The
new unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.
If the second unit is also destroyed,
then the Blightplague inflicts D3
mortal wounds on another enemy
unit, and so on until a unit is not
destroyed by the disease, or there are
no other units within range when a
unit is destroyed.
Undulant Scourge:The nearest
enemy model within 13″of the
PRIESTis infected by the Undulant
Scourge. The infected model’s unit
suffers 1 mortal wound, plus 1 extra
mortal wound for each other model
from the unit that is within 3″of the
Crimsonweal Curse:The nearest
enemy unit within 13″of the PRIEST
is infected by the Crimsonweal
Curse. The infected unit suffers
1 mortal wound. In addition, the
infected unit, and each enemy unit
within 1″of the infected unit, suffers
1 mortal wound in each of your
future hero phases.
