Adeptus Mechanicus Kill Teams

ADEPTUS MECHANICUS models in Kill Team use the Canticles of the Omnissiah ability below. In addition, if every model in your kill team has the ADEPTUS MECHANICUS Faction keyword, you can use Adeptus Mechanicus Tactics.

Canticles of the Omnissiah

At the start of each battle round, pick which Canticle of the Omnissiah from the table opposite is in effect until the end of the battle round. The same Canticle may not be picked twice during the same battle.

Alternatively, you can randomly determine which Canticle of the Omnissiah is in effect by rolling a D6 and consulting the table opposite. Note that if you randomly determine a Canticle, it takes effect even if the same Canticle has been in effect earlier in the battle.

CANTICLES OF THE OMNISSIAH TABLE
D6CANTICLE
1Incantation of the Iron Soul: You can re-roll failed Nerve tests for models in your kill team.
2Litany of the Electromancer: Roll a D6 for each enemy model within 1" of any models in your kill team at the start of the Fight phase. On a 6, that enemy model suffers 1 mortal wound.
3Chant of the Remorseless Fist: Re-roll hit rolls of 1 for models in your kill team in the Fight phase.
4Shroudpsalm: When an enemy player makes a hit roll for a shooting attack that targets a model from your kill team, and that model is obscured, that hit roll suffers an additional -1 modifier.
5Invocation of Machine Might: Add 1 to the Strength characteristic of models in your kill team.
6Benediction of the Omnissiah: Re-roll hit rolls of 1 for models in your kill team in the Shooting phase.

Forge World Dogma

The Sub-factions for models with the ADEPTUS MECHANICUS Faction keyword are called forge worlds, and their Sub-faction abilities are called Forge World Dogmas. If your kill team is Battle-forged and all models in your kill team are drawn from the same forge world, models in the kill team gain the Forge World Dogma described below, and you can use that forge world’s Tactics.

MARS: GLORY TO THE OMNISSIAH

In all the Cult Mechanicus, there are no forge worlds more holy or more blessed than Mars. The favour of the Machine God can be seen in the powerful optimisation granted by every static-ridden psalm incanted by his most faithful followers.

Each time you randomly determine which Canticle of the Omnissiah is being canted, roll two dice instead of one. Models in your kill team receive the benefit of both results, instead of just the result of the first dice (if a duplicate is rolled, no additional Canticle is canted this turn).

GRAIA: REFUSAL TO YIELD

Steely minded tenacity and the refusal to retreat are more than just character traits of those who serve Graia. Indeed, such qualities are hard-wired into all who bear the forge world’s symbol.

Roll a dice each time a model in your kill team is reduced to 0 wounds. On a roll of 6, they are restored to 1 wound remaining. In addition, models in your kill team pass Nerve tests on an unmodified roll of 6 (as well as an unmodified roll of 1). However, models in your kill team cannot Retreat or Fall Back unless there is a COMMANDER from your kill team on the battlefield.

METALICA: RELENTLESS MARCH

Those of Forge World Metalica seek nothing less than to completely obliterate their foes and to re-order the galaxy according to their own dictates. They will let nothing sway their appointed task.

Models in your kill team can shoot Rapid Fire weapons as if they were Assault weapons in the Shooting phase of a battle round in which they Advanced (e.g. a Rapid Fire 1 weapon would be used as if it were an Assault 1 weapon). In addition, these models do not suffer the penalty to their hit rolls for shooting Assault weapons during a battle round in which they Advanced.

LUCIUS: THE SOLAR BLESSING

Lucius is renowned for its craftsmanship and its unique solar-blessed ores. Those clad in such raiment consider themselves armoured by their faith in the Omnissiah.

When making saving throws for models in your kill team, treat enemy attacks with an Armour Penetration characteristic of -1 as having an Armour Penetration of 0 instead.

AGRIPINAA: STAUNCH DEFENDERS

Battle-hardened by constant clashes with the horrors that issue out of the Eye of Terror, those from Forge World Agripinaa have learned the lessons of defensive warfare well.

When a model in your kill team fires Overwatch, they successfully hit on a roll of 5 or 6.

STYGIES VIII: SHROUD PROTOCOLS

When the armies of Stygies VIII march to war, they do so beneath stealth screen projectors and target-befouling apparatus. That the Tech-Priests of this forge world deny owning such technology only reinforces their untrustworthy reputation.

Models in your kill team are considered to be obscured to enemy models that target them if they are more than 12" away from those models.

RYZA: RED IN COG AND CLAW

Tech-Priests of Ryza point to aggressive combat doctrines and zealous training protocols to explain the exceptional hand-to-hand prowess of their troops. Sceptics, however, counter that such designs do not explain why Ryza troops seem to revel in close-quarters violence.

You can re-roll wound rolls of 1 in the Fight phase for attacks made by models in your kill team.

Enhanced Data-tether
You can re-roll failed Nerve tests for SKITARII models while a friendly model with an enhanced data-tether is on the battlefield and not shaken.
1
Omnispex
At the start of each Shooting phase, you can choose another SKITARII model within 3" of a friendly model equipped with an omnispex that is not shaken. That model does not suffer penalties to their hit or injury rolls due to their target being obscured.
Out of Action
A model that is taken out of action is seriously injured or may even be slain – either way it will play no further part in the battle. Remove that model from the battlefield.
Nerve Tests
You must take a Nerve test for each of your models that has a flesh wound, and for your other models if your kill team is broken. To take a Nerve test for a model, roll a D6 and apply the following cumulative modifiers:

NERVE TEST MODIFIERS
Each other friendly model that is shaken or is out of action+1
Each other friendly model (other than shaken models) within 2" of the model-1

If the result of the Nerve test exceeds the model’s Leadership characteristic, the test is failed. The model is shaken, and cannot do anything until it is no longer shaken: place a Shaken token next to it. Otherwise, the test is passed. The test is always passed on an unmodified roll of 1.
Mortal Wounds
Some attacks inflict mortal wounds – these are so powerful that no armour or force field can withstand their fury. Each mortal wound inflicts one point of damage on the target model. Do not make a wound roll or saving throw (including invulnerable saves) against a mortal wound – just inflict damage to the model. If a mortal wound reduces a model to 0 wounds, any further mortal wounds directed against this model by this attack are not resolved and the player whose model caused the mortal wound makes an Injury roll for that model.
Long Range
A target is at long range if it is more than half the weapon’s Range characteristic away from the attacking model. Grenade weapons are not affected by this rule.

For example, a boltgun has a Range of 24". Any target that is more than 12" away from a model attacking with a boltgun is at long range.
Obscured
Other models (even friendly models) and terrain may hide a target from view. If the target of an attack is even partially obscured from the best point of view of the firing model (that is, the point of view from a part of the firing model that gives the clearest line of sight), then it is said to be obscured.

When checking to see if a target is obscured, consider the main body of the firing and target models – do not include a model’s base or parts that are ‘sticking out’ like aerials or weapons, but do include all limbs and a model’s head. If there is still doubt, we recommend the players agree about what constitutes the main body of a model before the battle begins.
Flesh Wound
A model that suffers a flesh wound is restored to 1 wound remaining. A model with one or more flesh wounds suffers penalties to hit and is more likely to be taken out of action (see above). Mark one of the empty Flesh Wound boxes on that model’s datacard. If a model suffers a flesh wound and all of the Flesh Wound boxes on their datacard are marked, it is taken out of action instead. In the Morale phase each player takes Nerve tests for each of their models that has one or more flesh wounds.
Hit Roll
To see if an attack hits the target, roll a D6 and apply the following cumulative modifiers:

HIT ROLL MODIFIERS
Target model is at long range-1
Target model is obscured-1
Each flesh wound on the attacking model-1
Attacking model’s kill team is broken-1

If the result is equal to or greater than the attacking model’s Ballistic Skill characteristic, then it scores a hit with the weapon it is using. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified hit roll of 1 always fails, and an unmodified hit roll of 6 always hits.
Canticles of the Omnissiah
At the start of each battle round, pick which Canticle of the Omnissiah from the table opposite is in effect until the end of the battle round. The same Canticle may not be picked twice during the same battle.

Alternatively, you can randomly determine which Canticle of the Omnissiah is in effect by rolling a D6 and consulting the table opposite. Note that if you randomly determine a Canticle, it takes effect even if the same Canticle has been in effect earlier in the battle.

CANTICLES OF THE OMNISSIAH TABLE
D6CANTICLE
1Incantation of the Iron Soul: You can re-roll failed Nerve tests for models in your kill team.
2Litany of the Electromancer: Roll a D6 for each enemy model within 1" of any models in your kill team at the start of the Fight phase. On a 6, that enemy model suffers 1 mortal wound.
3Chant of the Remorseless Fist: Re-roll hit rolls of 1 for models in your kill team in the Fight phase.
4Shroudpsalm: When an enemy player makes a hit roll for a shooting attack that targets a model from your kill team, and that model is obscured, that hit roll suffers an additional -1 modifier.
5Invocation of Machine Might: Add 1 to the Strength characteristic of models in your kill team.
6Benediction of the Omnissiah: Re-roll hit rolls of 1 for models in your kill team in the Shooting phase.

Advancing
When you pick a model to move, instead of making a normal move with that model you can declare that it will Advance, unless it is within 1" of an enemy model. If you do so, make an Advance roll by rolling a D6. Add the result to the model’s Move characteristic for that Movement phase. You can then move that model a distance equal to or less than its Move characteristic. A model that Advances cannot charge, React or shoot later that battle round. If you have Kill Team tokens, place an Advance token next to the model as a reminder.

Setting Up In Reserve

You can do this with up to half of the models in your kill team, but if you are using a Battle-forged kill team, the total points cost of any models you set up in Reserve can be no greater than half of your kill team’s Force.

Retreat
A target model cannot Retreat if it has already made a move of any kind (or attempted to charge) in this phase. A model can Retreat if it has already fired Overwatch in this phase. When a model Retreats, it can be moved up to 3" by the controlling player. This move must end with the model further away from the charging model, and more than 1" from any other enemy models. A model that Retreats cannot React later in the battle round, and cannot shoot later in the battle round (unless it can FLY). If you have Kill Team tokens, place a Fall Back token next to the model as a reminder.
Falling Back
When you pick a model to move, if that model started the Movement phase within 1" of an enemy model, it cannot make a normal move. Instead, it can either remain stationary or Fall Back. A model cannot Fall Back if an enemy model finished a charge move within 1" of it in the same phase. If you choose to Fall Back, the model can move a distance equal to or less than its Move characteristic, but must end its move more than 1" away from all enemy models. If a model Falls Back, it cannot Advance, charge, React or be Readied in that phase. A model that Falls Back also cannot shoot later that battle round unless it can FLY. If you have Kill Team tokens, place a Fall Back token next to the model as a reminder.

RAPID FIRE

Rapid Fire weapons are capable of single aimed shots at long range and controlled bursts at close quarters.

A model firing a Rapid Fire weapon doubles the number of attacks it makes if all of its targets are within half the weapon’s Range characteristic.
ASSAULT

Assault weapons fire so rapidly or indiscriminately that they can be shot from the hip as warriors dash forwards into combat.

You can choose to shoot with a model with an Assault weapon in the Shooting phase (or React with that model to fire Overwatch) even if it Advanced earlier in that battle round. If it does so, it can only fire Assault weapons, and you must subtract 1 from any hit rolls made when firing that weapon this battle round.
Saving Throw
The player controlling the target model then makes a saving throw by rolling a D6 and modifying the roll by the Armour Penetration characteristic of the attacking weapon. For example, if the attacking weapon has an Armour Penetration of -1, then 1 is subtracted from the saving throw. If the result is equal to, or greater than, the Save characteristic of the target model, then the damage is prevented and the attack sequence ends. If the result is less than the model’s Save characteristic, then the saving throw fails and the model suffers damage. An unmodified saving throw of 1 always fails.
Overwatch
Overwatch is a special type of shooting attack, made by a model that is the target of a charge and resolved in the Movement phase. It uses all the normal rules for shooting (e.g. the target must be in range and visible when they declare the charge), except that any attacks made must target the model attempting to charge, and a 6 is always required for a successful hit roll, irrespective of the firing model’s Ballistic Skill or any modifiers.
Wound Roll
If an attack scores a hit, you will then need to roll another dice to see if the attack wounds the target. The roll required is determined by comparing the attacking weapon’s Strength characteristic with the target’s Toughness characteristic, as shown on the following table:

WOUND ROLL
ATTACK’S STRENGTH VS TARGET’S TOUGHNESSD6 ROLL REQUIRED
Is the Strength
TWICE (or more)
than the Toughness?
2+
Is the Strength
GREATER
than the Toughness?
3+
Is the Strength
EQUAL
to the Toughness?
4+
Is the Strength
LOWER
than the Toughness?
5+
Is the Strength
HALF (or less)
than the Toughness?
6+


If the roll is equal to or greater than the required number, the attack succeeds and the attack sequence continues. If the roll is less than the required number, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified wound roll of 1 always fails and an unmodified wound roll of 6 is always successful.
Does not include wargear
PISTOL
Pistols are carried one-handed and can even be used in a melee to shoot at point-blank range.
You can choose to shoot with a model with a Pistol weapon even if there are enemy models within 1", but it must target the closest enemy model (you can choose which if two or more are equidistant) and can only shoot with its Pistol weapon(s). In such circumstances, the model can shoot its Pistol even if other friendly models are within 1" of the same enemy model. It cannot fire a Pistol if it was charged in this battle round.

Each time a model armed with both a Pistol and another type of ranged weapon (e.g. a Pistol and a Rapid Fire weapon) is chosen to shoot, it can either shoot with its Pistol(s) or with all of its other weapons. Choose which it will fire (Pistols or non-Pistols) before making hit rolls.

Melee
Each time a model makes a close combat attack, it uses a melee weapon – the weapons a model is armed with are listed on its datasheet. In addition to the melee weapons listed on their datasheets, all models are also assumed to be able to fight with a close combat weapon, which has the following profile:

WEAPONRANGETYPESAPD
Close combat weaponMeleeMeleeUser01

If a model has more than one melee weapon, choose which it will use before rolling the dice. If a model has more than one melee weapon and can make several close combat attacks, it can split its attacks between these weapons however you wish – declare how you will divide the attacks before any dice are rolled.

Invulnerable Saves
Some models possess abilities or wargear, such as supernatural reflexes or force fields, that grant them an invulnerable save. Each time you are required to make a save roll for a model with an invulnerable save, you can choose to use either its normal Save characteristic or its invulnerable save, but not both. If you use a model’s invulnerable save, it is never modified (e.g. by a weapon’s Armour Penetration characteristic or by the Survivor ability) unless the modifier explicitly applies to invulnerable saves. If a model has more than one invulnerable save, it can only use one of them – choose which it will use.

HEAVY

Heavy weapons are the biggest and deadliest guns on the battlefield, but require reloading, careful set-up or bracing to fire at full effect.

If a model with a Heavy weapon moved in the preceding Movement phase, you must subtract 1 from any hit rolls made when firing that weapon this battle round.

Arc maul used in following datasheets:

Datasheet
Charge Move
After all Reactions have been resolved, make a charge roll by rolling 2D6. The charging model can move up to this number of inches – this is their charge distance this turn. To make a successful charge roll, the model must finish its move within 1" of at least one of the target models. A model that does so is said to have charged, and the enemy models that are within 1" of it at the end of its move are said to have been charged. It cannot move within 1" of an enemy model that was not a target of its charge.

If the model cannot finish its move while following these restrictions, the charge fails and the model is not said to have charged – however, the model can move up to its charge distance, as long as that move takes it as close as possible to at least one of the targets of its charge, and not within 1" of any enemy models. A model can only make one charge attempt in each Movement phase, and once it has done so it cannot shoot later in the battle round. If you have Kill Team tokens, place a Charge token next to the model as a reminder.
