Random Happenings

Source: Mordheim Annual 2002

Mordheim is a dark and sinister city - dangers lurk around every corner. Even the basic laws of nature cannot be relied upon. Mark Havener and Tim Huckelbery explain how these dangers can be introduced to your battles.

These rules represent the weird and wonderful things that can happen in Mordheim which are beyond the control of players. These rules are intended to be optional and should only be used if agreed on by all players taking part. To determine if a random encounter occurs, roll a D6 at the start of each player's turn. A result of 1 indicates a random encounter. Roll a D66 for the random encounter on the chart below to see what exactly is encountered and follow the directions.

The player whose turn it is places any models that represent the encounter and they will act in each of his turns (that player doesn't control their actions though, see the individual descriptions to see how the models act). This player is known as the 'Encountering Player', even though random encounters will frequently affect only his opponent or both players indiscriminately. The models that represent a random encounter must all be placed within 6" of a randomly determined board edge and they will remain within 2" of another member of their group at all times. Random encounter members must be placed (and will remain, unless their description indicates otherwise) at ground level in the open. The Encountering Player places the models representing the random encounter, but note that they cannot initially be placed within 12" of any warband models.

After being placed, many encounters will travel as quickly as possible (without running) towards the nearest warband model. For this purpose the nearest model is the model that the encounter can reach most quickly and encounter models will never climb the sides of a building to get at a warband member. What each encounter does from there is listed in its description. Note that charging models will engage as many warband members as they can reach, ganging up if some of them can't reach different models. No more than one random encounter will ever take place in a single game, so after a random encounter is rolled, the players no longer need to roll at the start of their turns. Several of the entries below refer to game turns, this includes both players' turns.

11 Ogre Mercenary

An Ogre Mercenary appears further down the street. Sensing trouble brewing, he decides to seize the opportunity and offer his services to the warband with the lowest warband rating (if there are two warbands with the same rating, roll a dice to see whom he offers his help to).

The warband that he offers to help must add the Hired Sword to its roster for this game. At the end of the game, the Ogre demands payment for services rendered. The warband that he joined must pay his hire and upkeep fee. If the warband cannot (or will not) pay him, he leaves, but not before taking out his frustration on a random member of the warband (only roll among members of the warband who were not taken out of action during the game). Roll for injuries to this unfortunate member just as if he had been taken out of action.

12 Swarm of Rats

Something in the sewers has frightened the rats that live there. The rats are in a hurry to get away and will attack anything that stands in their way.

Use a template 80mm x 120mm to represent the rats. Six monster bases (use rat swarms if you have them), placed in a rectangle with one short side representing the front, will do nicely. The rats move 2D6" each turn. They will always move forward down the centre of the street and if they come to an intersection roll randomly to determine which direction they take (example: for a normal four-way cross-intersection roll a D6: 1-2 right, 3-4 straight forward, 5-6 left). The rats cannot be engaged in close combat and if they make contact with a model they will run right over him. Any model moved over by the rats will suffer D3 Strength 2 hits, normal armour saves apply.

13 Earthquake

Powerful magical energies from the crater at the centre of the city shake the local landscape. The ground heaves and buckles violently and warband members find it hard to keep their footing.

Roll a D3 to determine how many game turns the earthquake lasts. While the shaking persists, all movement is halved, all Initiative tests (climbing, etc) suffer a -2 penalty and all Shooting and Close Combat to hit rolls are made with a -1 penalty.

14 High Winds

A powerful wind screams through the area, wildly scattering debris and knocking down anything that is not firmly anchored to the ground.

Warband members now suffer a -1 penalty to all Initiative tests (climbing, jumping, etc) and to hit rolls (close combat and shooting) for the rest of the game.

15 Blood for the Blood God!

Unfortunately for the warbands involved, the scent of blood has brought the attention of one of Khorne's minions. Reality is breached as a vicious Bloodletter emerges from the Realm of Chaos to shed even more blood for its master.

The Bloodletter has the following characteristics and special rules:

Blood letter46043162+10

Fear: As monstrous and horrifying creatures, Bloodletters cause fear.

Save: 4+ Daemonic armour save.

Psychology: Immune to all psychology tests.

Hellblade: The Bloodletter is armed with a Hellblade which will automatically cause a critical hit if a 4+ is rolled to hit.

The Bloodletter will seek out the nearest close combat and join in, drawn by the clash of steel. The Daemon has a number of Attacks equal to the number of opponents it is fighting (down to a minimum of 2 Attacks). It will split its attacks amongst the opponents, and no matter how many warriors are involved it may roll to hit each one at least once. It will also prevent an opponent from taking any other warrior out of action in the massed combat, as they will be too concerned with the Daemon to finish off their other enemy!

If there are no ongoing close combats within range, it will charge the model with the highest Weapon Skill in order to do battle with a worthy opponent. If there are no enemies within charge range, the Daemon will run towards the nearest warrior, eager to do battle. The Daemon will stay for D6 turns after which it will dissappear.

16 Lucky Find

One random model, on his feet and not in hand-to-hand combat or fleeing, has stumbled upon a shard of wyrdstone!

Assuming he doesn't go out of action, this is added to any other shards the warband finds after the game. If he is taken out of action in close combat, the enemy model steals the shard away! Note that only non-animal models can find or steal a shard, not Dire Wolves, Hunting Dogs, etc.

21 Restless Spirit

Countless unfortunates have suffered agonising deaths in countless forms since the comet crashed into the city. Not all of these individuals can easily accept their new condition and they refuse to rest. Perhaps they left some important task unfinished or seek revenge on those who did them harm. The warbands have stumbled upon one such ghost.

Any warband member who is within 8" of the spirit at the start of its Movement phase must make a Leadership test or flee (exactly as if he were fleeing from combat). Models that are immune to psychology automatically pass this test. This creature is unable to affect (or be affected by) the physical world, but it is very frightening nonetheless. The spirit moves 4" in a random direction, moving through walls, obstacles or warband members as if they were not there. It will not charge and cannot be harmed by the warband members in any way. The only exception to this is if the spirit comes into contact with a Sigmarite Matriarch or a Warrior-Priest of Sigmar. These models may choose to put the dead to rest. If the player controlling such a model decides to do this. the spirit is immediately banished (disappears and does not rerurn) and the priest gains one Experience point.

22 Burning Building

Suddenly, one of the buildings (chosen at random) bursts into flames, ignited by smouldering embers from a fire thought extinguished long ago.

Any models inside take a S3 hit unless they move outside in that turn and any models within 2" of the walls take a S2 hit from the smoke and heat unless they move further away as well. For the rest of the game, the building itself will cause fear due to the incense flames and anyone who wishes to enter it must first pass a fear test exactly as if they wished to charge a fear causing enemy.

23 Man-Eater

One of the trees growing in the area has been changed into a carnivorous predator by exposure to the Chaos magic inundating the area.

Randomly determine which member of the Encountering Player's warband finds the plant. That model is attacked as a large mouth opens up in the trunk of the tree and its branches whip down to grab its unfortunate victim. Place a tree next to the victim. He is now considered to be in close combat with the tree, which has the following characteristics:


The tree automatically passes any Leadership tests it is required to make. Any result on the Injury table will cause the Man-Eater to stop attacking, though it is not possible to actually take it out of action or knock it down. Opponents are + l to hit the tree, due to the fact that it is rooted to the spot!

24 Skeletons

While the intense magic of the area rapidly dissolves skeletons to dust, shambling hordes of them spring up at random from the bones of the fallen. Uncontrolled, they roam the city wasteland, blindly attacking everything they find before falling apart.

2D6 Skeletons appear with the following profile:


Fear: The Skeletons cause fear.

Psychology: Skeletons are immune to all Leadership based tests and results.

They are armed with simple weapons or bony fists (treat as daggers in close combat). The skeletons will move towards and attack the closest models as quickly as possible. Roll a D3 when they appear, after that many turns they crumble back to inanimate bones (count the current turn as the first one).

25 The Twisting of the Air

Reality itself seems to twist, warping perceptions until no one can be sure of whar their senses tell them.

Roll a D6 at the start of each player's turn. For the next D3 game turns the distance within which warriors can use their Leader's Leadership value and the distance for being all alone is the value rolled instead of the normal 6". All distances between models are also increased by the same D6" roll for purposes of weapon ranges and charging. Note that the actual models are not moved, but only the shooting/charging model's perception of the distance.

26 Spawn

The warbands have stumbled upon one of the many former inhabitants of the city that got too close to the crater at the centre of the city and was turned into a mindless spawn.

Spawn have the following characteristics:


Fear: Spawn are disgusting and revolting blasphemies against nature and cause fear.

Psychology: They are mindless crearures knowing no fear of pain or death. Spawn automatically pass any Leadership based test they are required to make.

Movement: The Spawn moves 2D6 toowards the nearest model in each of its Movement phases. It does not double its movement for charging, instead if its movement takes it into contact with a model it counts as charging and engages that model in close combat.

Attacks: Roll at the beginning of each Close Combat phase to determine the spawn's number of Attacks for that phase.

31 Collapsing Building

Pick one building at random. Any models inside must pass an Initiative test or suffer a S5 hit, armour saves applying as normal, as the building collapses. Remove the building from the table (replacing with ruins if possible), and place the models back on the table where it stood. Any models climbing the sides of a building or on the roof when it collapses automatically fall from whatever height they were at.

32 Scrawlings on a Wall

A randomly determined warband member who is within 4" of a building (if there are no models this close to a building, ignore this encounter), sees writing suddenly appear in blood on the wall closest to him.

Roll on the following table to find out what the writing says:

1The writings are a map of the area.
The model's warband receives a + 1 on the roll to pick the scenario for the next game they take part in.
2Reading the writing accidentally sets off a spell on the reader.
The model suffers a minor curse and now has a -l penalty to all dice rolls for the rest of the game.
3The warband member learns of the remains of some booty inside the building.
If he moves inside he finds a D6 gold crowns.
4The writings reveal all the hiding places in the area.
The model can hide, even in the open, for rest of the game.
5The warband member learns of a secret passage inside the building
If he moves inside, he can pop out next turn in any other building,
6A fun read, but nothing else happens (Veskil was here!).

33 Thick Fog

A fog rolls in. thick as pea soup.

Models can only see 2D6" (roll once for the distance all models can see; do not roll individually for each model). Re-roll at start of each Encountmedng Player's turn to see what the visibility is for that rurn. The fog lasts for the rest of the game.

34 Hands of Stone

Hands of earth and stone suddenly jut out of the ground in a small area of the battlefield.

The Encountering Player must pick a spot anywhere on the battlefield and anything within 3" of that spot is affected. The area is now very difficult ground as the hands grasp and attempt to hold anyone passing near them. This encounter lasts one game turn, at the end of which the hands sink back into the ground.

35 Dog Pack

Recent events in Mordheim have caused many of the city's dogs to suddenly find themselves without homes. Groups of these animals have turned feral and formed into hunting packs. The warbands have been discovered by one such (very hungry) pack.

The pack consists of 2D6 wild dogs (use the War Hounds stats from the Witch Hunter warband list). The dogs move as quickly as they can toward the nearest models, dividing themselves as evenly as they can between multiple targets if they are available. If members of a dog pack take a warband member out of action, he will be eaten if not rescued. If no friendly model comes within 6" of where the model fell by the end of that warband's next turn, the fallen member is considered lost (dog food). If a dog pack fails a Rout test, they leave without taking their 'food' with them, any warband members taken out of action in the last turn of the game have not been eaten and follow the normal rules for models taken out of action.

36 Possessed!

One randomly selected member of the Encountering Player's warband is suddenly possessed by a minor spirit. This spirit is far too weak to control the model's entire body, but is instead limited to controlling one of his or her limbs (usually an arm).

The model takes an automatic hit at his or her own Strength during each of his or her Close Combat phases until the possession is over and may do nothing else. The possession lasts D3 game turns. Note that Sigmarite Matriarchs and Warrior-Priests are immune to this possession. as are non-living warband members. If such a warband member is the object of the spirit's attention, randomly determine another warband member to suffer the effect instead.

41 Fountain of Blood

The City itself seems to weep as even more blood is shed on its streets.

For the rest of the game, whenever a model is taken out of action in close combat, the model that did the deed must take a Strength test or be knocked down as he is hit by a torrent of blood pouring from the ground. If there were others involved in the combat they are not affected, as the steaming liquid seems to be directed only at those who have called it into being by their bloodthirsty actions.

42-44 Storm of Chaos

Clouds rapidly gather above the city in an unnatural, sickly yellow-green mass and warp lightning begins to dance from one cloud to another. Thunder rocks the air, screaming out in almost intelligible noises. The clouds themselves seem to take on the shapes of monstrous creatures and both warbands in the conflict look at each other with fear on their faces.

Roll a D6 to see what the storm manifestation will bring:

1Warp lightning begins to strike the ground in search of a victim.
It will hit the warrior with the best armour save, attracted to the large amount of metal. That warrior takes a S5 hit, with no armour save possible. If multiple warriors all have the highest armour save, randomly determine which is struck. The warp lightning will strike for D3 turns before moving on towards another part of the city.
2Fish suddenly fall out of the sky to pelt the area!
All movement is halved for one turn (due to wet, flapping fish underfoot), but there is no other effect.
3Wyrdstone dust has mixed with the water vapour in the area and produced the strange looking clouds from which a tainted rain begins to fall. The rain burns flesh and eats into stone and metal.
Each warband member in the open takes a single S2 hit (normal armour saves apply) every turn the rain lasts until he gets under cover. The rain lases D3 turns.
4A magical mass of lightning forms near the ground, illuminating the area with an eerie greenish glow. It begins to move about the area, drawn to magical powers from which it feeds.
Place a counter as per the normal Encounter rules to represent the mass and each turn move it 2D6" towards the highest level spell user (the one with the most spells - each turn roll a D6 if two or more spell users have the highest number of spells). If there are no magic users in the game, the mass will move towards the opposite table edge, doing nothing but blocking line of sight as it moves. If the model the mass is moving towards casts a spell, immediately move the counter another D6" towards the model. If the ball of lightning touches the target model, the model is frozen in time and cannot do anyming. While frozen, the model cannot be attacked or harmed in any way - the lightning mass protects its prey! After freezing a model, the lightning will no longer move but will instead remain near its victim to feed. The lightning will feed for D3 rurns on the magical energy of its victim and then flies back towards the warp clouds above, freeing the magic user. If the game ends before the feeding is done, the victim is immediately released. Victims suffer no long-term ill effects from their exposure to the lightning.
5A rumbling is heard from overhead, as thunder erupts from the strange clouds. Th thunderclaps become more intense and the heavy pulses of air brings warriors to their knees as if they had been hit by cannonballs of solid air.
D6 randomly selected models are knocked down by the air bursts. If any of these models are in close combat, all other members of that melee are knocked down as well.
6Tendrils of smoke drift down from the clouds, winding around the heads of members of each warband.
Randomly select one Hero from each warband - these warriors have been chosen by rival storm gods as their champions. The chosen models must move towards each other every turn and get into close combat as quickly as possible. Once in combat, they will automatically pass all Leadership tests and will fight until only one remains (the combat will end when one of the models puts his rival out of action). If a warband does not have any Heroes left in play when the storm gods choose their champions, a random henchman will be chosen from that warband instead.

45 Pit Fighter

This encounter is identical to the Ogre Mercenary encounter before, except the Hired Sword encountered is a Pit Fighter, not an Ogre Mercenary.

46 Plague of Flies

An enormous cloud of flies appears in the sky and swoops down on the warbands below.

All models have an extra -1 to hit penalty when shooting or fighting in close combat as flies buzz around them and into open orifices. The flies remain for D3 game turns and then fly away.

51 Sinkhole

An enormous mouth suddenly opens up under the feet of one randomly determined warband member.

Make an Initiative test for the model. If the test is failed, the model falls into the pit. If a 1 is rolled for the test, me model is sucked underground and taken out of action. Any other failure results in the model catching himself in the opening, which closes around him. Treat the model as being knocked down for the rest of the game, though he may not move at all.

52 The Horror in the House

Randomly select one warrior lurking alone inside a building (if there are no warband members inside a building, ignore this result and re-roll on the Random Encounters table). Unfortunately for him, he's not as alone as he thought. He hears a slight ripping sound as if the air itself is being torn apart and something manifests itself behind him.

The warrior must make a fear test and if he fails, in his next Movement phase he will run screaming 2D6" from the building towards the nearest table edge and can do nothing else in that turn. If he passes the test, the unnatural presence still forces him D6" outside, but he suffers no other effects. At the start of his subsequent turn, a fleeing model can try to recover from his ordeal by passing a Leadership test, but at a -1 penalty. If he does, he stops, but cannot do anything else that turn other than catch his breath. If he fails, he again moves 2D6", trying in vain to erase the terrifying images from his memory. For the rest of the game, the building itself will cause fear, and anyone who wishes to enter it must first pass a fear test exactly as if they wished to charge a fear-causing enemy.

53 Plague Victims

Disease is a common occurrence among the few survivors left in the ruins of the city._

This group of a D6 citizens has contracted a particularly nasty plague known as Nurgle's Rot. They move at normal pace (4") towards the nearest warband members, seeking their help. If they come into contact with a warband member, they will not attack, but will instead cling to him as they beseech his aid, hindering him greatly. A model with Plague Victims in contact with him acts as if he had just recovered from being knocked down (moves at half rate, may not charge or run, etc. See the Mordheim rules for details). If one or more of the Plague Victims is charged. shot at, or otherwise attacked, these pitiful victims will rout immediately. At the end of the game, roll a dice for each warband member in play when the Plague Victims appeared and on a roll of 1, that member has contracted Nurgle's Rot. Roll again to see what effect the disease has on that member:

1Major Symptoms: The plague races through the victim's system, producing horrible disfiguring lesions before killing him. If the model is a Henchman, he dies. If the model is a Hero, roll D3 times on the Serious Injury table (ignoring Robbed. Bitter Enmity, Captured and Sold to the Pits results) to determine the long term effects of the disease.
2-5Minor Symptoms: The plague takes its toll on the victim as it takes its course. Without proper bed rest the victim will die. The warband member must miss the next game as he recovers.
6Full Recovery! The victim has an especially hardy constitution or gets an extremely mild case of the disease. The victim suffers no ill effects.

54 Last One Standing

The horrors of Mordheim can drive even the strongest mind past the point of madness. This Sigmarite Matriarch has seen her entire warband cut down around her and the experience has proven too much. She now seeks revenge and is not particular about who gets to pay!

She is armed with a Sigmarite Hammer and steel whip and wears heavy armour and a helm. She carries Blessed Water and a Holy Relic on her person as well. She knows the prayers The Hammer of Sigmar and Armour of Righteousness. Roll randomly to determine which she casts on herself each rurn. She has the skills Absolute Faith, Jump Up and Step Aside. The Matriarch will move as quickly as possible towards the nearest model and engage them in close combat if able. She will not rout and must be taken out of action to make her stop. If the Matriarch is taken out of action, leave her body where it fell, any non-animal warband member may loot her body by moving into contact with it during their Movement phase. If this warrior is later taken out of action as well, place a counter where the warrior fell to represent the Matriarch's equipment. This can then be picked up by a different model as above.

55 Booby Traps

Some nefarious individuals have trapped the whole area the warbands are searching. These traps may take the form of spiked pits, deadfalls, spring-driven spiked boards, etc.

When this encounter is rolled, the Encountering Player must randomly determine which of his warband members has discovered the first trap. This unfortunate individual springs a trap immediately. If the trap is not avoided by passing an Initiative test, that model takes a Strength 3 hit; armour saves apply as normal. From this point until the end of the game, each player will roll a D6 at the start of his or her Movement phase. A roll of l means that one member of that player's warband has sprung a trap and must make an Initiative test to avoid it. If the trap is not avoided, the model takes a S3 hit as above; apply any damage before the model is moved.

56 Catacombs

The ground gives way under one randomly selected warrior and he falls into the depths of the catacombs below the city.

He takes a S3 hit from the fall unless he passes an Initiative test, and lands near the remains of others who have fallen before him. Assuming he's not taken out of action by the fall, he discovers one of the following after a quick search (roll a D6):

1A helmet
2A small pouch containing 2D6 gold crowns
3A lantern
4A net
5A vial of B1ack Lotus
6A sword

Unless he has a rope & hook, the warrior is stuck in the catacombs and cannot rejoin the game. He will count as being out of action for Rout purposes, but will rejoin his warband after the game with no other untoward effects. If he does have a rope & hook, he can climb out D3 turns later, appearing inside a randomly determined building.

61 Forbidden Fruit

Ghostly white flowers suddenly open on a tree in the area and emit a powerful fragrance.

Randomly determine a member of the Encountering Player's warband who happens to be standing next to the tree when it comes to life. Place the tree within 2" of this model. Any warband members within 8" of the tree must make a Leadership test at the start of each of their turns or move as quickly as possible towards the tree. If within 1" of the tree, a spellbound model will pick and eat one of the swollen, blood-red fruit hanging from its branches. Any model eating one of the fruit is automatically taken out of action, as powerful poisons incapacitate him or her. A non-spellbound warband model may keep another model from moving coward the tree by moving into base to base concact with him or her and holding him back. Neither model may do anything else while the spellbound model attempts to move to the tree and the restraining model attempts to prevent him from doing so. Both spellbound and restraining models can react normally if attacked in dose combat and a restraining model can give up his attempts ar any time. This encounter lasts the remainder of the game. Close inspection of the tree reveals the bones of several animals overgrown with grass and leaves lying at its base.

62 The Lost

Many view the destruction of Mordheim as a sign that the world is coming to an end. Groups of these lunatics are often drawn to the city where they attack anyone they come across, certain that they are in some way helping to avert this cataclysm.

This group of D3 Flagellants will move as quickly as possible towards the nearest warband members and engage them in close combat as soon as the are able. They are armed with flails.

63 Reflecting Pool

One warrior on the ground (selected at random from the Encountering Player's warband) noties a small pool of what looks to be still water. Reflecting the gloomy sky above, it appears to be liquid metal or unnaturally deep silvery water, rippling only slightly with the dank breeze blowing through the city. He can ignore it, or bend quickly to peer into its depths.

If he's brave enough to gaze into the murky liquid. roll a D6:

1The water reflects back nightmare images of his own demise, filling him with fear for his own safety. For the rest of the game, no matter how far away he is from friendly models, he will always count as being all alone in close combat.
2The warrior glimpses an image of what is yet to come. For the rest of the current turn he may re-roll (once!) any shooting or close combat roll to hit.
3A faint image of his personal god appears, be it Sigmar or even the dread Shadowlord. Filled with courage, the warrior may ignore any and all Leadership-based tests he is required to make for the rest of the game.
4The warrior peers into the depths of his own mind, unlocking untapped abilities. He can detect any enemy models hidden that turn, even those not in his normal line of sight, and passes the information on to the rest of his compatriots. All enemy models lose their hidden status.
5A slender arm reaches out from the pool, leaving no ripples in the smooth liquid, and pale fingers touch the warrior's chest. The soft caress causes a faint glow, which spreads throughout his body. Though it quickly dims away, a strong feeling of strength and vitality is left behind. The warrior may ignore the next wounding hit he receives, even if it is a critical hit.
6The city chooses to reveal its true visage to the warrior, unveiling the monstrous intelligence that lurks behind the facade of simple ruins and rubble. The warrior's mind is overwhelmed by the enormity of the impression and he stumbles away in stark terror. For the rest of the game, all enemy models count as causing fear to the warrior and he will refuse to enter any buildings or get within 2" of any walls or ruins. After the game the effects will wear off, though he will always hesitate slightly before entering an unlit room from now on...

Note: Only warriors who can gain in experience can choose to look into the pool, all others simply lack the curiosity to bother!

64 Screaming Walls

Faces appear in the walls of one randomly determined building and start to emit a piercing shriek.

Any warband members within 8" of the building take a S1 hit (no armour saves allowed) and are at -1 on all to hit rolls (close combat and shooting) while the screaming lasts. Spellcasters are even more sensitive to the noise than others and so no spells may be cast from within its radius. Roll a D3 to determine how many game turns the screaming lasts.

65 Peddler

The winning warband sees a peddler wandering through the ruins. This travelling merchant keeps his entire stock on his back and offers to sell part of it to the warband.

No matter which turn it is rolled on, this encounter happens at the end of the game. He has the following items at half their normal price: mace, hammer, sword, dagger, axe, helmet, crossbow, pistol, duelling pistol, rope & hook, any poison, lucky charm, blessed water, hunting arrows, garlic, healing herbs, holy (or unholy) relic, lantern and Mordheim map. Roll a D3 for each item to find the quantity the pedlar carries.

66 ltsy-Bitsy Spider

The presence of the wyrdstone has mutated this common household pest into a monster of titanic proportions!

This Gigantic Spider has the following characteristics:


Fearsome Beast: The Gigantic Spider causes fear.

Chitinous Hide: It has an armour save of 4+.

Poisonous Bite: Any to wound rolls of 5 or 6 (rather than just a 6) arc treated as critical hits.

The Gigantic Spider moves from the table edge it starts from to the opposite table edge, attacking any warband members that get in its path.
