    21.H.a.1 Breath Attack (X)
    A model part with Breath Attack can use it only once during the game. If a model has more than one Breath Attack, it can only use one Breath Attack in a single phase. It can be used either as a Shooting Attack or as a Special Attack when Engaged in Combat.
    • As a Shooting Attack with March and Shoot: choose a target using the normal rules for Shooting Attacks (it can be used for a Stand and Shoot Charge Reaction). The attack has a range of 6″. A model part with both a Breath Attack and a Shooting Weapon can use both in the same Shooting Phase, however only against the same target.
    • As a Special Attack when Engaged in Combat: the attack is made at the model part’s Agility. Declare that you are using the Breath Attack at the start of the Initiative Step (before rolling to hit), and choose a unit in base contact as a target.
    No matter if it is used as a Shooting or Melee Attack, the target of the Breath Attack suffers 2D6 hits. The Strength, Armour Penetration, and Attack Attributes (if any) of these hits are given within brackets, such as in Breath Attack (Str 4, AP 1, Flaming Attacks ). If several models in the same unit have this Special Attack, roll for the number of hits separately for each model.
