ABILITIES
Failure Is Not An Option: T’AU EMPIRE units within 6" of a friendly ETHEREAL may use the Ethereal’s Leadership characteristic instead of their own when taking Morale tests.

Invocation of the Elements: In your Movement phase, an ETHEREAL may invoke one of the elemental powers below. All friendly T’AU EMPIRE INFANTRY and BATTLESUIT units within 6" of the model invoking an elemental power gain the relevant benefit until the start of your next turn. A unit can only be affected by the same elemental power once per battle round.
  • Calm of Tides: Subtract 1 from any Morale tests made for affected units.
  • Storm of Fire: Re-roll hit rolls of 1 in the Shooting phase for affected units that remain stationary in the Movement phase.
  • Sense of Stone: Whenever a model in an affected unit loses a wound, roll a D6; on a 6, that model does not lose that wound.
  • Zephyr’s Grace: You can re-roll the dice for affected units when they Advance.

Equalizers used in following datasheets:

Melee Weapon
Each time a model makes a close combat attack, it uses a melee weapon – the weapons a model is equipped with are described on its datasheet. In addition to their other weapons, all models are assumed to be equipped with a close combat weapon, which has the following profile:

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.

Morale Test

Even the bravest heart may quail when the horrors of battle take their toll.

In the Morale phase, starting with the player whose turn it is, players must take Morale tests for units from their army that have had models slain during the turn.

To take a Morale test, roll a dice and add the number of models from the unit that have been slain this turn. If the result of the Morale test exceeds the highest Leadership characteristic in the unit, the test is failed. For each point that the test is failed by, one model in that unit must flee and is removed from play. You choose which models flee from the units you command.

Hit Roll
Each time a model makes an attack, roll a dice. If the roll 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. A roll of 1 always fails, irrespective of any modifiers that may apply.
Advancing
When you pick a unit to move in the Movement phase, you can declare that it will Advance. Roll a dice and add the result to the Move characteristics of all models in the unit for that Movement phase. A unit that Advances can’t shoot or charge later that turn.
