Morticus, Vindicare Temple Assassin
Rules by Master Bryss
The Vindicare operative known as Morticus is a veteran sniper specialising in battlefield assassination. Many a time has an enemy commander marched to war only to be shot just before the battle starts, throwing the army into disarray. The bullet fired into the commander will then detonate, eliminating any chance of tracing the bullet to its owner. Such acts show the dedication and intellect of Morticus, ensuring a clean, efficient job, which pleases the master of the Vindicare Temple greatly.
Morticus may be taken as the 0-1 Assassin allowed in Inquisitorial forces. He is an Elites choice that may only be included if an Inquisitor is part of the force.

Morticus’ Exitus Rifle: This is a normal Exitus Rifle, however shots from this weapon always wound on a 2+ in addition to any other benefits afforded by special ammunition. Any of Morticus’ bullets have a high chance of exploding inside the enemy’s head! Any To Wound roll of 6+ inflicts Instant Death.
- Pre-emptive Shot
Pre-emptive Shot: Morticus specialises in battlefield assassination. After units have made any Scout moves and Infiltrators have been deployed Morticus may fire his Exitus Rifle once as normal. This does not affect his ability to shoot normally during player turns.
