New Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Battlescroll

The quarterly Battlescroll rules adjustment document for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar has been released. It brings many changes to rules and army point costs.

Some of the changes are summarized below, but for the full set of changes, you can download the new battlescroll here.

One of the new Lore of Primal Frost spells, Rupture has changed. When targeting an Incarnate, it does D3 mortal wounds to the unit bonded to the Incarnate, and then the Incarnate loses a power level in addition to becoming wild. When targeting a predatory endless spell, it dispells the target and does D3 mortal wounds to the Wizard who cast it.

Another Primal Frost spell, Merciless Blizzard now can’t be cast by a unit that was set up or moved previously in the same phase.

The rule from the Battleplan called No Reward Without Risk has been clarified to only affect Wizard Hero units (not all Wizard units).

The casting roll for Scinari Deep Thinkers can now be modified.

Great Nation of Ymetrica units with Enduring as Rock now have a flat Rend reduction to minimum zero.

The Soulblight Gravelords’ spell, Spirit Gale, has been changed so that when successfully cast it only targets three units. However, unmodified casting rolls of 9 can add up to six.

Mortarchs and Mortisan Boneshapers, from the Ossiarch Bonereapers, now reconstruct Immortis Guard and Necropolis Stalkers with just one wound remaining.

Stormcast Eternals, Maggotkin of Nurgle, and Skaven each have one new battle tactic. The Nightgaunt have a new grand strategy.

Ten factions have had point cost changes.
