The Stormcast Eternals are mortal heroes that have been transformed into supernatural warriors in the forges of Azyr, each the embodiment of Sigmar’s storm. They are the God-King’s wrath made manifest, and they were created for one single purpose: outright war!

This page contains all of the rules you need to field your Stormcast Eternals miniatures on the battlefields of the Mortal Realms, from a host of exciting allegiance abilities to a range of warscrolls and warscroll battalions. The rules are split into the following sections.

Designers’ Commentary

Battletome: Stormcast Eternals

 Q: Does the Hallowed Knights Only the Faithful ability apply to spells cast by friendly WIZARDS?
 A
Yes.
 Q: Does the Celestant-Prime’s Retribution from On High Ability add 2 to the Attacks characteristic of Ghal Maraz for each turn that the Celestant-Prime remains in reserve?
 A
Yes.
 Q: As the proud owner of a Stardrake, I have a question. Say for example a Bloodthirster was in combat with a unit of Paladins and they knocked it down to 4 remaining wounds and then a Stardrake piled in – does the Cavernous Jaws ability then work on a roll of 5 or more to eat the Bloodthirster, or is it rolled against the warscroll’s Wounds characteristic?
 A
It is rolled against the model’s Wounds characteristic. The wounds allocated to a model do not reduce its Wounds characteristic.
 Q: If I use the Lord-Arcanum’s Cycle of the Storm to heal a wound on a model instead of slaying it, what happens to any wounds that remain to be allocated?
 A
Continue to allocate them as normal. Cycle of the Storm will not always stop a model from being slain, but will require an extra wound to be inflicted in order to do so.
 Q: Does the Thundershock spell automatically subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks made by enemy units that are in range, or only if I roll a 4+?
 A
Only if you roll a 4+.
 Q: Can I use Gavriel Sureheart’s command ability to affect the same unit more than once in the same phase?
 A
Yes.

Battle Traits

Scions of the Storm

Sigmar’s finest warriors strike as if from nowhere, the building storm heralding their arrival.

Instead of setting up a STORMCAST ETERNAL unit on the battlefield, you can place it to one side and say that it is set up in the Celestial Realm as a reserve unit. You can set up one reserve unit in the Celestial Realm for each unit you have set up on the battlefield. At the end of your movement phase, you can set up one or more of the reserve units in the Celestial Realm on the battlefield, more than 9" from any enemy units. Any reserve units in the Celestial Realm that are not set up on the battlefield before the start of the fourth battle round are slain.

Shock and Awe

When the Stormcast Eternals arrive to reinforce their allies, their sudden appearance strikes terror into the hearts of the enemies of Sigmar.

Subtract 1 from hit rolls for attacks that target friendly STORMCAST ETERNAL units that were set up on the battlefield during the same turn.

Stormhosts

The Stormhosts of Azyr are numerous, and each one has its own methods of waging war.

If your army is a Stormcast Eternals army, you can give it a Stormhost keyword. All STORMCAST ETERNAL units in your army gain that keyword. If a model already has a Stormhost keyword, it cannot gain another one, but this does not prevent other units in your army from having a different Stormhost keyword. You can either choose one of the Stormhosts listed below, or choose another Stormhost you’ve read about or created yourself. If you choose one from the list below, all units with that keyword benefit from the extra abilities listed for that Stormhost on the page indicated. If you choose a different Stormhost, simply pick the Stormhost that most closely matches the nature of your own Stormhost.

Anvils of the Heldenhammer

The Anvils of the Heldenhammer are heroes from ages long past, summoned from their tombs by the God-King and remade as warriors eternal. Though they fight as an ordered military machine, and though they do Sigmar’s holy work, to a casual observer these ageless warriors seem like grim revenants just as terrifying as any wight.

ABILITIES
No True Death: The Anvils of the Heldenhammer know that if slain, they will return to fight again.
You can re-roll failed battleshock tests for friendly ANVILS OF THE HELDENHAMMER units.

Astral Templars

Hunters and monster-killers, the Astral Templars are more at home in the wilderness than the city. They hail from tribes that once fought giant beasts to survive – though now their skills are put to even better use. Clad in furs adorned with skulls and totems, they have a barbaric appearance, but their valour is proven in battle every day.

ABILITIES
Beast Stalkers: The Astral Templars are experienced hunters of the most horrific creatures the Mortal Realms have to offer.
Add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by ASTRAL TEMPLARS units that target a MONSTER.

COMMAND TRAIT
An ASTRAL TEMPLARS general must have this command trait instead of one listed in Command Traits section.

Dauntless Hunters: The Astral Templars do not often seek permission to rush headlong at the foe, but their commanders relish giving it anyway.
After set-up is complete, but before the battle begins, friendly ASTRAL TEMPLARS units wholly within 12" of this general can move up to 6".

ARTEFACT OF POWER
The first ASTRAL TEMPLARS HERO to receive an artefact of power must be given the Godbeast Plate.

Godbeast Plate: This armour, quenched in the blood of the mightiest beasts, is proof against the raking claws of feral creatures.
Subtract 1 from wound rolls for attacks made by a MONSTER that target the bearer.

Celestial Vindicators

The Celestial Vindicators live to slaughter those who worship Chaos. Be their foes human, skaven, beastman or daemon, they must be met with rage, hacked to pieces so the realms might be free of their curse. In battle this Stormhost is a hurricane of blades that never relents, and at times can even rage too hard for mortal tolerance.

ABILITIES
Driven by Vengeance: The Celestial Vindicators strike down their foes with a flurry of blows.
You can re-roll hit rolls of 1 for attacks made by
friendly CELESTIAL VINDICATORS units if they made
a charge move in the same turn.

Righteous Hatred: The Celestial Vindicators are relentless in their desire to slay the enemies of Sigmar.
You can use this command ability the start of the combat phase.

Pick one of the bearer’s melee weapons. At the start of the combat phase, you can add 2 to the Attacks characteristic of this weapon until the end of that phase. If you do so, subtract 1 from save rolls for attacks that target the bearer until the end of that phase.

Celestial Warbringers

The warrior-seers of the Celestial Warbringers hail from a tribe of people who can foresee their own deaths. They are touched by mysticism, and read the omens and portents of the Heavens to give them a vital edge in battle. They use daring ploys and harness the energies of Azyr to confound and destroy those that would defy Sigmar.

ABILITIES
Fearless Foresight: The Celestial Warbringers use portents to inform their strategies in battle.
At the start of the first battle round, after determining who has the first turn but before the first turn begins, you can pick up to D3 friendly CELESTIAL WARBRINGERS units and set them up again (any restrictions in the set-up instructions for the battleplan being used still apply).

COMMAND ABILITY
Astral Conjunction: Celestial Warbringers read the stars to boost their already potent magical powers.
You can use this command ability in your hero phase. If you do so, pick a friendly CELESTIAL WARBRINGERS WIZARD wholly within 9" of a friendly CELESTIAL WARBRINGERS HERO, or wholly within 18" of a friendly CELESTIAL WARBRINGERS HERO that is a general. Add 1 to casting rolls for that unit until the end of that phase.

COMMAND TRAIT
A CELESTIAL WARBRINGERS general must have this command trait instead of one listed in Command Traits section.

Portents and Omens: The leaders of the Celestial Warbringers receive guidance from the stars.
Once per turn, you can re-roll 1 failed hit roll or 1 failed wound roll for an attack made by this general, or 1 failed save roll for an attack that targets this general.

ARTEFACT OF POWER

Hallowed Knights

The Hallowed Knights are driven by a fierce inner fire, all doubts and negativity made distant memories by the power of their faith. They are devoted believers, never ceasing in their crusade – even when it takes them to the most forsaken places in all the realms. Who can triumph over the darkness? Only the faithful!

ABILITIES
Only the Faithful: The Hallowed Knights are so devout that they can deny even the magic of the realms.
If a friendly HALLOWED KNIGHTS unit is affected by a spell or endless spell, roll a dice. On a 6+ ignore the effects of that spell on that unit.

COMMAND ABILITY
Holy Crusaders: The Hallowed Knights are driven forward by their faith, always eager to bring Sigmar’s holy retribution to the enemies of the God-King.

Hammers of Sigmar

ABILITIES
First to be Forged: The Hammers of Sigmar were at the forefront of Sigmar’s war against Chaos, and have stared down the greatest of horrors.
Add 1 to the Bravery characteristic of friendly HAMMERS OF SIGMAR units.

COMMAND ABILITY
Soul of the Stormhost: The Redeemers of the Hammers of Sigmar break the enemy force with waves of reinforcements that never seem to end.

Knights Excelsior

The Knights Excelsior are Sigmar’s divine annihilators. They see all beings as either good or evil – and it is their duty to eliminate evil. Unfettered by doubt or indecision, they deliver the God-King’s justice to any that betray even the slightest impurity – be it through words, deeds or merely a stray thought.

ABILITIES
Storm of Annihilation: The Knights Excelsior take a cold pleasure in the deaths of their foes.
If a friendly KNIGHTS EXCELSIOR unit makes an attack that destroys an enemy unit, you can re-roll hit rolls of 1 for attacks made by that KNIGHTS EXCELSIOR unit for the rest of the battle.

Your opponent rolls 2D6 if the target is a HERO or 3D6 if it is a MONSTER or HERO MONSTER. If your roll is higher, until your next hero phase, halve the Move characteristic, run rolls and charge rolls for that enemy model, and halve the Attacks characteristic of its melee weapons. Round any fractions up.

Tempest Lords

The Tempest Lords are not only warriors, but also rulers, lords and grand strategists who were born to lead. Where a conventional army wins battles, the Tempest Lords win wars, leaving a foundation of victory upon which the spires of civilisation can be built anew.

ABILITIES
Grand Strategists: The Tempest Lords have an innate grasp of the flow of battle, allowing them to adapt to any situation at great speed.

Avenging Strike

As the thunder crashes overhead, the Stormcast Eternals arrive to deliver justice to the oppressors of the Mortal Realms. Striding from the lightning bolts, the warriors of the Stormhosts surround their enemies, their objective pure and simple – the annihilation of the enemies of Sigmar. The fiends that oppose them must try to destroy the Azyrite hosts before them – or, failing that, break out of this trap and escape.

THE ARMIES
Each player picks an army as described in the core rules. One player is the Stormcast Eternals player and their opponent is the Fiend player. The Stormcast Eternals player must use a Stormcast Eternals army.

Each army has a unique command ability, as follows.

STORMCAST ETERNALS COMMAND ABILITY
No Mercy: Your general exhorts their warriors to strike unceasingly, even as the enemy turns tail.
You can use this command ability at the start of the enemy battleshock phase. If you do so, pick a friendly STORMCAST ETERNAL unit wholly within 6" of a friendly STORMCAST ETERNAL HERO, or wholly within 12" of a friendly STORMCAST ETERNAL HERO that is a general. If an enemy unit fails a battleshock test within 3" of that unit, add D3 to the number of models that flee.

FIEND COMMAND ABILITY
Flee!: Seeing the turning of the tide, your general makes all haste to escape the sudden ambush, and their warriors follow their lead.
You can use this command ability at the start of your movement phase. If you do so, pick a friendly unit wholly within 6" of a friendly HERO, or wholly within 12" of a friendly HERO that is a general. You can re-roll run rolls for that unit in that movement phase.

SET-UP
The Fiend player sets up their army first, wholly within their own territory. The Stormcast Eternals player then sets up their army wholly within their territory, more than 12" from any enemy units.

LIKE CORNERED ANIMALS
The fiends do not die easily, lashing out with spiteful blows as they are struck down.
Each time a model from the Fiend player’s army is slain by an attack made with a melee weapon, roll a dice. On a 6+ pick 1 unit from the Stormcast Eternals player’s army within 3" of the slain model. That unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

ESCAPE
Breaking through the Stormcast lines, the exultant fiends flee into the dark.
At the start of the Fiend player’s hero phase, any units from the Fiend player’s army that are wholly within 5" of the edge of the battlefield, and more than 3" from any enemy units, can escape the battle. Remove the models in those units from play, but do not count them as being slain.

SIGMAR’S SWIFT VENGEANCE
Stormcast Eternals act quickly against those who would defile Sigmar’s lands.
Add 1 to charge rolls for reserve STORMCAST ETERNAL units that were set up on the battlefield for the first time in the same turn.

GLORIOUS VICTORY
The Fiend player wins a major victory if no models from the Stormcast Eternals player’s army are on the battlefield.

The Stormcast Eternals player wins a major victory if no models from the Fiend player’s army are on the battlefield and no more than 3 Fiend units escaped the battle (see ESCAPE). If no models from the Fiend player’s army are on the battlefield and between 4 and 6 Fiend units escaped the battle, the Stormcast Eternals player wins a minor victory. Any other result is a minor victory for the Fiend player.


Battleplan

In Sigmar’s Name

An army of invading marauders is threatening to storm a fledgling city of Order with the goal of pillaging its riches and slaughtering its inhabitants. The only thing that stands between this invading horde and the city’s gates is an army of Stormcast Eternals. Girded with the power of the Heavens, they must prevent the enemies of Sigmar from defiling this haven and making off with its treasures.

THE ARMIES
Each player picks an army as described in the core rules. One player is the Stormcast Eternals player and their opponent is the Marauder player. The Stormcast Eternals player must use a Stormcast Eternals army.

Each army has a unique command ability, as follows.

STORMCAST ETERNALS COMMAND ABILITY
Let None Pass: The general orders their warriors to stand firm and bar the marauder’s path.
You can use this command ability at the start of the enemy movement phase. If you do so, pick a friendly STORMCAST ETERNAL unit wholly within 6" of a friendly STORMCAST ETERNAL HERO, or wholly within 12" of a friendly STORMCAST ETERNAL HERO that is a general. Enemy units cannot pass across or finish a move within 6" of that unit in that movement phase.

MARAUDER COMMAND ABILITY
Brook No Delay: Your general’s orders are clear – these warriors are an irrelevance, and should be swept aside so that the plundering might commence.
You can use this command ability at the start of your charge phase. If you do so, pick a friendly HERO. You can re-roll charge rolls for friendly units that start that phase wholly within 12" of that HERO.

SET-UP
The players alternate setting up units one at a time, starting with the Marauder player. Marauder units must be set up wholly within their territory. Stormcast Eternals units must be set up wholly within their territory.

Continue to set up units until both players have set up their armies. If one player finishes first, the opposing player can set up the rest of the units in their army, one after another.

FIRST TURN
The Marauder player takes the first turn in the first battle round.

GETTING AWAY WITH THE PRIZE
Plunder has great value to many of the enemies of Sigmar. From enchanted trinkets to precious metals, all are worth taking.
At the start of the Marauder player’s hero phase, any Marauder units that are wholly within 5" of the western edge of the battlefield, and more than 3" from any enemy units, can escape the battle. Remove the models in those units from play, but do not count them as being slain.

GLORIOUS VICTORY
The Marauder player wins a major victory if there are no STORMCAST ETERNAL models are on the battlefield.

The Stormcast Eternals player wins a major victory if there are no models from the Marauder player’s army on the battlefield and no Marauder units escaped the battle (see GETTING AWAY WITH THE PRIZE).

If there are no units from the Marauder player’s army on the battlefield but 1 to 3 Marauder units escaped the battle, the Stormcast Eternals player wins a minor victory. Any other result is a minor victory for the Marauder player.

Followers Rewards Table

D6REWARD
1

Lifted by Lightning

This unit of warriors calls to Sigmar for aid, asking the God-King to use his arcane lightning to propel them across the battlefield.

Defensive Formation

There is great strategic merit in digging in, bolstering your defences and waiting for the right moment to strike.

3

Flashbacks

The memory of your champion’s mortal life returns to them in flashbacks. Sometimes the grief of those distant days is too much to overcome; other times it inspires them to greater acts of vengeance.

Roll a dice in your hero phase. On a 1, re-roll unmodified hit and wound rolls of 6 for attacks made by your champion until the start of your next hero phase. On a 4+ you can re-roll hit and wound rolls of 1 for attacks made by your champion until the start of your next hero phase.

Mighty Blow

A single strike from your champion’s weapon is often all that is needed to slay their opponent outright.

11

Noble Blood

Your champion’s esteemed heritage grants them resilience in battle, allowing them to shrug off serious injuries with ease.

Roll a dice each time you allocate a wound or mortal wound to your champion. On a 6+ that wound or mortal wound is negated.

12

Lord of Lightning

Death is no permanent obstacle to your champion; renewed by the power of Sigmar’s lightning, they return to the battlefield once more.

Once per battle, at the start of your hero phase, you can roll a dice if your champion has been slain. On a 5+, set up your champion more than 9" from the enemy and roll a D3; the result is the number of wounds they have remaining. This counts as their move for the following movement phase.

Reserves
Reserves are units that are part of your army, but which have an ability that allows you to set them up in a location other than on the battlefield and deploy them later once the battle has begun. Setting up a reserve unit is not considered a move for the unit, but it may restrict a unit’s ability to move in the same turn. Any reserves that have not been set up when the battle ends are treated as if they had been slain when you are working out which side won the battle.
Piling In
A unit can make a pile-in move if it is within 3" of an enemy unit or has made a charge move in the same turn. If this is the case, you can move each model in the unit up to 3". Each model must finish its pile-in move at least as close to the nearest enemy model as it was at the start of the move.
Allocating Wounds
Once all of a unit’s attacks have been resolved, add up the damage that was inflicted. The player commanding the target unit must then allocate a number of wounds to the target unit equal to the damage that was inflicted.

Wounds are allocated one at a time to models in the target unit. You can allocate the wounds inflicted on your units as you see fit (the models do not have to be within range or visible to the attacking unit). However, if you allocate a wound to a model, you must keep on allocating wounds to that model until it is slain – a unit can never have more than one wounded model.

Some abilities allow you to make a roll to negate a wound or mortal wound allocated to a model; in this case the roll is made for each individual wound or mortal wound as it is allocated to the model in question. If the wound or mortal wound is negated it has no effect on the model.
Healing Wounds
Some abilities allow wounds that have been allocated to a model to be healed. For each wound that is healed, remove one of the wounds that have been allocated to the model. You can’t heal wounds on a model that has been slain.
Modifiers
Sometimes modifiers apply to characteristics or abilities. For example, a rule might add 1 to a hit roll or the Move characteristic of a model. Modifiers are cumulative. Modifiers can never reduce a dice roll to less than 1.

If a modifier applies to a random value, work out the random value first and then apply the modifier(s) to it. For example, if an ability adds 1 to a Damage characteristic of D3, the result would be worked out by rolling the D3 and adding 1 to the roll.
Making Attacks
Attacks are resolved one at a time using the following attack sequence. In some cases, you can resolve all of the attacks made by the same type of weapon at the same time (see Multiple Attacks).

1.Hit Roll: Roll a dice. If the roll equals or beats the attacking weapon’s To Hit characteristic, then it scores a hit and you must make a wound roll. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. A hit roll of 1 before modification always fails to hit the target, and a hit roll of 6 before modification always hits the target.
2.Wound Roll: Roll a dice. If the roll equals or beats the attacking weapon’s To Wound characteristic, then it is successful and the opposing player must make a save roll. If not, then the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. A wound roll of 1 before modification always fails, and a wound roll of 6 before modification is always successful.
3.Save Roll: The opposing player rolls a dice, modifying the roll by the attacking weapon’s Rend characteristic. For example, if a weapon has a -1 Rend characteristic, then 1 is subtracted from the save roll. If the result equals or beats the Save characteristic of the models in the target unit, the save succeeds and the attack sequence ends without causing any damage. If not, the save fails and the attack is successful, and you must determine damage on the target unit. A save roll of 1 before modification always fails.
4.Determine Damage: Each successful attack inflicts damage on the target unit equal to the Damage characteristic of the weapon making the attack. Most weapons have a Damage characteristic of 1, but some have a Damage characteristic of 2 or more.
Command Abilities
If you have any HEROES in your army, you can use command abilities. Some command abilities are available to all armies, like the three on the right, while others are specific to certain models and appear on their warscroll. Some of these command abilities can only be used if that model is your general; when this is the case, it will be noted in the rules for the command ability.

In order to use any command ability you must spend 1 command point. You start the battle with 1 command point for each warscroll battalion you have in your army. In addition, you receive 1 command point at the start of each of your hero phases. You can use the same command ability several times in the same phase as long as you have enough command points to do so. Any command points you do not use can be used in a future turn. A command ability will usually specify when it is used; if it does not, it is used in your hero phase.
Mortal Wounds
Some attacks, spells and abilities inflict mortal wounds. Do not make hit, wound or save rolls for mortal wounds. Instead, the damage inflicted on the target is equal to the number of mortal wounds that were suffered. Allocate any mortal wounds that are caused while a unit is attacking at the same time as any other wounds caused by the unit’s attacks, after all of the unit’s attacks have been completed. Mortal wounds caused at other times are allocated to models in the target unit as soon as they occur, in the same manner as wounds caused by damage from an attack.

After they have been allocated, a mortal wound is treated in the same manner as any other wound for all rules purposes.
Melee Weapons
In order to make an attack with a melee weapon, a model must be in range of the target unit.
Missile Weapons
In order to attack with a missile weapon, the model using the weapon must be in range of the target unit (i.e. within the maximum distance, in inches, of the Range listed for the weapon making the attack), and the target unit must be visible to the model with the weapon (if unsure, stoop down and look from behind the shooting model to see if a model from the target unit is visible). For the purposes of determining visibility, a model can see through other models in its unit.

Some missile weapons have a Range characteristic with a minimum range, for example 6"-48". Such weapons cannot attack units that are wholly within the shorter range.
Casting and Unbinding Spells
A WIZARD can attempt to cast spells in its own hero phase. You cannot attempt to cast the same spell more than once in the same turn (even with a different wizard).

In order to cast a spell, first say which spell the wizard is going to attempt to use (it must be one they know). To cast the spell, roll 2D6. If the total is equal to or greater than the casting value of the spell, the spell is successfully cast.

If a spell is cast, the opposing player can choose one of their WIZARDS that is within 30" of the caster to attempt to unbind the spell before its effects are applied. To unbind a spell, roll 2D6. If the roll beats the roll used to cast the spell, then the spell is not successfully cast. Only one attempt can be made to unbind a spell.
Flying
If the warscroll for a model says that the model can fly, it can pass across models and terrain features as if they were not there when it makes any type of move. Any vertical distance up and/or down is ignored when measuring a flying model’s move. It cannot finish the move on top of another model.

The STORMCAST ETERNAL, HERO and TOTEM keywords are used in following Stormcast Eternals warscrolls:

Leader
Running
When you pick a unit to make a normal move, you can declare that it will run. Make a run roll for the unit by rolling a dice. Add the result of the run roll to the Move characteristic of all models in the unit for that movement phase. The unit can then move up to that distance in inches. Models in a unit that runs can’t shoot or charge later in the same turn.

Moves made in the movement phase are referred to as normal moves, to differentiate them from charge moves (made in the charge phase) and pile-in moves (made in the combat phase). A model making a normal move can move a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move characteristic shown on its warscroll.
