At the start of the game, the army of Sylvania places Grave markers (each about the size of a coin) to represent the location of these burial sites. After table edges have been decided, but before units have been deployed, the Sylvanian player places two Grave markers, plus an additional Grave marker for each Vampire Count or Vampire Lord in the army according to the following rules:

  • No Grave marker may be placed within 6" of another.

  • At least 50% of the Grave markers must be placed in the Sylvania player's table half.

  • No Grave marker may be placed in the opponent's deployment zone.

When all the Grave markers have been placed, the Sylvanian player rolls a Scatter dice for each. If a Hit is rolled, the marker remains where it was placed. If the result is an arrow, the Grave marker moves 2D6" in the direction shown. Grave markers that scatter off the table are lost and have no further effect on the game. The Army of Sylvania player may cast From Death Awakened from each Grave marker during each of his own Magic phases.

The army of Sylvania follows all of the Laws of Undeath, unless stated elsewhere.
