SPECIAL RULES

Difficult to Slay: Borgio the Besieger has an almost unnatural ability to withstand pain and injury. If he is reduced to zero wounds, then do not remove the model, but lay it on its side and leave it in place. At the end of the phase, roll a D6. On a 1-3, he is removed as a casualty as normal. On a roll of 4 or more, he stands back up again with a single Wound remaining.

Beloved General: Borgio the Besieger was beloved by his men, and the people of Miragliano. To represent this, any friendly unit within 18" may test on Borgio's Leadership. This rule replaces the normal rules for Generals found in the Warhammer rulebook (page 102).

Magic Banner: Borgio the Besieger is the Merchant Prince of Miragliano, and because of this one unit of Pikemen or Heavy Cavalry may carry a 50 point Magic Standard. This rule does not apply to Regiments of Renown.

MAGIC ITEMS

Mace of Might. Borgio made this weapon out of a cannon ball that hit him square in the chest, yet did not kill him. From that point on it has become his good luck charm. If Borgio rolls a 6 to hit with this weapon, that hit will be at Strength 10.

Armour of Brazen Bronze. This counts as a suit of heavy armour that also conveys a Ward save of 5+.

Monstrous Mask Helm. This Helm causes fear.
