IRONBREAKER V2

By Claudio “BlackShadow” Lancellotti

Ironbreakers are proud and noble members of the ancient clan of the Ironbreakers. These invincible warriors have the duty to protect the ancient stronghold of dwarves against every kind of foul and evil creatures.
Due to their promise, it is difficult to meet Ironbreakers outside the dwarven’ kingdoms. Sometimes, however, they are sent to the outer world to fulfil special quests. More often, they are one of the few survived of an ancient dwarven outpost. Instead of joining the trollslayer guild, they swear to destroy the evil monsters that have invaded the dwarven territories.
To do so, they usually decide to join warriors that regularly descend into the dungeons, in order to slain as much monsters as possible...

STARTING AS AN IRONBREAKER

Any player may start the game as an Ironbreaker rather than one of the Warriors in the Warhammer Quest box.  All of the rules for creating a new Warrior apply unless stated elsewhere in this Warrior pack.
The Profile of the Ironbreaker is as follows:

Wounds D6+9
Move 4(3)
Weapons Skill      4
Ballistic Skill 6+
Strength 3
Toughness 4(6)
Initiative 2
Attacks 1
Pinning Roll 6+

EQUIPMENT

The Ironbreaker starts with the Amulet of Karigan. This sacred amulet is blessed by the King of dwarvens. Once per adventure, the amulet allows the Ironbreaker to rebound a single attack to the monster that hit the Ironbreaker. You must declare that you want to use the amulet before rolling the dice to see how much wounds are inflicted.

WEAPON

The Ironbreaker starts with an axe, which causes 1D6+dwarf’s strength, for a total of 1D6+3 wounds.

ARMOUR

The Ironbreaker start with a runic armour. This armour adds +2 to the dwarf’s toughness.
Moreover, this armour in inscribed with a magical rune. Every time the Ironbreaker is hit by a blow that reduce him to zero wounds, roll a dice. On a roll of 5+ the blow is magically deflected, and the Ironbreaker takes no damage at all. The weight of the armour also gives to the Ironbreaker -1 to the movement.

IRONBREAKERS AND TREASURE

The Ironbreaker can use every kind of treasure the dwarf can use, with the following exceptions:
the Ironbreaker can only use axes or warhammers; he can only use dwarven runic armours; he cannot use firebombs.

ADVANCED RULES

In the advanced game, you can keep your Ironbreaker from game to game, building up his character as he progresses from adventure to adventure.  This section of the rulebook gives you all the rules for taking your Ironbreaker right up to battle-level 10, including special rules for visiting Settlements, training, and more. The Ironbreaker starts at battle-level 1 as a Novice – you will find his Battle Level Table later in this pack.  All the rules for Warhammer Quest still apply in the advanced game, unless specifically stated otherwise.

EQUIPMENT

The Amulet of Karigan has the same effects described above and can be used for 1D3 times, but once used it must be recharged. The Ironbreaker can recharge the amulet at the Temple of Grugni. See the Settlement section for more details.

SETTLEMENTS

IRONBREAKER GUILD

The Ironbreaker can find this guild on a roll of 8. This is due to the fact that it is difficult to meet Ironbreakers outside the dwarven kingdom, and as consequence few dwarven merchants have specific items for these warriors. Once the Ironbreaker has found a guild, he can buy the following items:

Roll 1D3 to see how many times can be used.

The Ironbreaker trains exactly the way as normal warriors do, by saving up gold to pay for training. The Ironbreaker may train for a week when he has enough gold.
When he gets up to an higher battle level, there is a chance he acquires a new skill. If it is the case, roll 2D6 in the following table:
