Wildercorps Hunters Quests
Dead Or Alive
Wildercorps Hunters are often tasked with tracking down and neutralising an enemy of one of the Cities of Sigmar. Quite how they do that is up to them, and, of course, any spoils from their target are theirs to dispose of as they wish.
Pick 1 artefact of power from the Plundered Trophies table (see below) and note it in your quest log. You cannot pick an artefact of power already borne by a fighter in your warband.
While embarked upon this quest, you must keep track of the loot your warband has plundered, represented by a trophy score.
In each battle, 1 enemy fighter is your warband's target. To determine which fighter is your warband's target, after deployment, first randomly pick an enemy battle group and then randomly pick I fighter within that battle group.
At the end of a battle, add 1 to your trophy score if your warband's target was taken down. In addition, add 1 to your trophy score if you won the battle.
You can complete this quest once your trophy score is 3 or more. When you complete this quest, you obtain the artefact of power that was noted in your quest log.
|Cloak of Shielding|
This cloak was claimed from a fallen warrior who loathed magic, and it is bound with powerful protections.
When the bearer would be allocated 1 or more damage points by an ability, only 1 of those damage points are allocated to the bearer.
_Once a mundane axe claimed from a foe, this weapon was consecrated by a priest of Sigmar. It now seems almost to seek out the neck of evildoers._
Melee attack actions made by the bearer score a critical hit on a 5+.
|Insignia of Valour|
_The warrior who bears this medal can inspire their fellows to greater efforts, no matter the odds._
After the bearer makes a melee attack action, a visible friendly fighter can make a bonus melee attack that targets the same fighter.
A curious device, this can be affixed to most weapons capable of hurling bolts of wood or metal, causing those missiles to burst into flames that scorch the victim's soul.
Add 1 to the damage points allocated by each critical hit from missile attack actions made by the bearer.
Forged with surpassing skill by duardin smiths, this helm bestows more than mortal resilience in the wearer.
Add 1 to the Toughness characteristic of the bearer.
These unassuming leather boots allow the wearer to move swiftly and soundlessly over any terrain.
Add 1 to the Move characteristic of the bearer. In addition, enemy fighters cannot make reactions to the bearer's move actions, and the bearer ignores the rules for deadly terrain.
Noble birth and wealth count for nothing in the Wildercorps. These warriors spend far too much time fighting for their lives away from civilisation to care much about either. Instead, they value a leader who has a knack for survival that extends to the men and women under their command. A Wildercorps Warden proves their worth day after day - or they do not remain a Warden for long.
Pick a Wildercorps Warden in your warband that can gain a heroic trait and note them in your quest log.
While embarked upon this quest, at the end of each battle, add 1 to your warband's survivor score for each friendly fighter on the battlefield. You can complete this quest in step 4 of a campaign battle's aftermath sequence if your warband's survivor score is 12 or more.
When you complete this quest, you can give that Wildercorps Warden one of the heroic traits from the Wildercorps Hunters Heroic Traits table below.
Wildercorps Hunters Heroic Traits Table
|Leads from the Front|
With this Warden leading the way, their warband would willingly follow them into the Eightpoints itself.
After this fighter makes an attack action that takes down an enemy fighter, this fighter can use the 'Inspiring Presence' ability without needing or using any ability dice.
|Can't Keep 'Em Down|
Though their warband has countless times presumed them dead, this Warden always returns to the encampment- and to the fight.
This fighter can make the 'Smart Step Backwards' reaction without forfeiting an action or spending a level of renown. In addition, when this fighter is sent forth in step 5 of the aftermath sequence, treat the result of any injury roll for this fighter as a Flesh Wound.
|Seen It All|
Orruks, ogors, daemons... this fighter has seen it all and lived to tell the tale.
If this fighter is on the battlefield, after rolling your initiative dice in the initiative phase, add 1 to the number of singles you have.
There is no warrior more adept at finding redoubts deep within enemy territory, and they have led their warband to safety time and time again.
When this fighter is sent forth in step 5 of the aftermath sequence, instead of rolling a D66, roll 3 dice, discard 1 and then choose which result is the ten and which result is the digit.
|Trailhound's Best Friend|
This Warden holds their Trailhounds in the same regard as the other fighters they lead and, as a result, they command their absolute devotion.
Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of melee attack actions made by friendly Trailhounds within 3" of this fighter.
Despite the things this warrior has seen and done, their soul remains pure and devoted to Sigmar. The Gargoylians recognise this and constantly ward this servant of the God-King.

Do or Die
The time has come, as it does to every band of Wildercorps Hunters sooner or later, to undertake a task so dangerous and so unlikely to result in success that it can be entrusted to no one else. A great enemy of the people of Sigmar must be located and brought to justice, and the Wildercorps will not be found wanting.
While embarked upon this quest, you must keep track of your warband's achievements, represented by a feats score. Add 1 to your feats score each time:

- An enemy fighter is taken down by a friendly fighter's melee attack action, unless that friendly fighter has the Beast () runemark.
- A friendly fighter's injury heals in step 6 of the aftermath sequence.
While your feats score totals 5 or more, you can fight battles using the "Fated Foe' quest battleplan. If you do so and you win the battle, in step 4 of the aftermath sequence, you can complete this quest. If you do so, in step 5, you can relocate your warband's encampment to 'Forward Base (see opposite) and do not need to spend any glory to do so.
Quest Battleplan: Fated Foe

Quest Chain: Finest Hour
To embark on a quest chain, your warband must meet the requirements listed for that quest. Otherwise, quests in a quest chain work in the same way as other quests.
1. Distress Signal
A scout has spotted a distress signal: a flare bursting in the night sky. It's clear that someone needs help, but not clear who they are, and finding them in the morass of the Sundered Scales will be easier said than done, Nevertheless, the Wildercorps Hunters receive the order to answer the call with stoicism and determination.
Requirement: You are using a Wildercorps Hunters warband that has not completed this quest.
While embarked upon this quest, you must keep track of the progress your warband makes towards locating the source of the distress signal, represented by a tracking score.
In each campaign battle, after deployment, your opponent must secretly pick one battlefield edge. At the end of each battle round, they must tell you whether you are on the trail or not. You are on the trail if one of your fighters is within 3" of the battlefield edge your opponent picked.
At the end of each battle, add 2 to your tracking score if you were on the trail at the end of the final battle round. In addition, add 1 to your tracking score each time you send a fighter forth in the aftermath sequence.
You can complete this quest once your tracking score is 5 or more. When you complete this quest, roll once on the lesser artefacts table in the Core Book.
2. Hot Pursuit
The Trailhounds have the scent now, and the Hunters are making fast progress towards their ally... or their quarry, perhaps? They cannot let minor engagements slow them down.
Requirement: Your warband has completed the 'Distress Signal' quest and has not completed this quest.
While embarked upon this quest, you must keep track of the progress your warband makes towards reaching their ally, represented by a pursuit score. In each campaign battle, after deployment, roll a dice. The result indicates which battlefield edge is your goal:
At the end of the battle, add 1 to your pursuit score for each friendly fighter that was within 3" of your goal at the end of the final battle round.
You can complete this quest once your pursuit scare is 10 or more. When you complete this quest, you receive D6 glory.
The end is in sight, both for the Wildercorps Hunters and their beleaguered ally. For an ally they are, and they are in dire straits, surround and hopelessly outnumbered. It’s hero time!
Requirement: Your warband has completed the 'Hot Pursuit' quest and has not completed this quest.
While embarked upon this quest, you can fight battles using the 'To the Rescue' quest battleplan.
If you do so and you win the battle, in step 4 of the aftermath sequence, you can complete this quest. If you do so, in step 6, you can add the beleaguered hero (see below) to your warband roster and do not need to spend any glory to do so.
Quest Battleplan: To the Rescue
The Wildercorps have reached their target, and not a moment too soon. A lone hero stands, beset and beleaguered as enemies swarm them from every direction. Can the Hunters save them before they face an ignominious fate, lost in the Sundered Scales?
Attacker and Defender
In this battle, the questing player is the defender, and the adversary player is the attacker.
Set up terrain as normal.
Use the deployment map below. The defender is blue and the attacker is red.
Place the beleaguered hero at the centre of the battlefield. The beleaguered hero can be any fighter with both the Hero () runemark and the Cities of Sigmar () faction runemark, but this battleplan was written with the Fusil-Major on Ogor Warhulk in mind. The attacker treats the beleaguered hero as a friendly fighter and the defender treats the beleaguered hero as an enemy fighter. The beleaguered hero cannot be activated.
When a fighter in the attacker's warband used the 'Respite' ability, if they are within 1" of the beleaguered hero and there are no enemy fighters within 1" of the beleaguered hero, the attacker can remove the relevant number of damage points from the beleaguered hero instead of the fighter using the ability.
In addition, fighters in the attacker's warband can make the following reaction.
[Reaction] Look Out, Sir!: A fighter within 1" of the beleaguered hero can make this reaction after the beleaguered hero is targeted by an attack action but before the hit rolls are made. Allocate all of the damage points from that attack action to this fighter instead of the beleaguered hero.
The battle ends when the beleaguered hero is taken down. Otherwise, the battle ends after 4 battle rounds. At the end of the battle, if the beleaguered hero is taken down, the defender wins. Otherwise, the attacker wins.
Determine a twist as normal.
The Aftermath Sequence
