No, the TS only takes damage if it rolls a 1 to create the scarab base.
The interesting thing to note though is this: the TS entry does not say anything about "...[takes a wound] with no armour save allowed" or something similar. Does this mean that the TS can attempt an armour save if it rolls a 1?
