A hit from a high intensity markerlight causes no damage, but allows 3 markerlight counters to be placed on the target unit.
ABILITIES
Positional Relay: At the start of your Shooting phase, select one friendly <SEPT> unit within 3" of this Remote Sensor Tower. Re-roll all hit rolls of 1 for that unit for the duration of that phase.

Immobile: This unit cannot move under any circumstances. If this unit is affected by an ability that would normally force a vehicle to move, or renders a vehicle immobile, it takes one mortal wound instead. Successful repair attempts by any friendly model may not grant it the ability to move. During the Fight phase, enemy models automatically hit this model – do not roll any dice.

High intensity markerlight used in following datasheets:

Fast Attack
Fortifications
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.
Terrain and Cover
The battlefields of the far future are littered with terrain features such as ruins, craters and twisted copses. Models can take shelter within such terrain features to gain protection against incoming weapons’ fire.

If a unit is entirely on or within any terrain feature, add 1 to its models’ saving throws against shooting attacks to represent the cover received from the terrain (invulnerable saves are unaffected). Units gain no benefit from cover in the Fight phase.
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 its preceding Movement phase, you must subtract 1 from any hit rolls made when firing that weapon this turn.
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.
ASSAULT

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

A model with an Assault weapon can fire it even if it Advanced earlier that turn. If it does so, you must subtract 1 from any hit rolls made when firing that weapon this turn.
Markerlights

A projected holo-beam illuminates the target, rendering it vulnerable to pinpoint fusillades from supporting units.

If a model (other than a VEHICLE) fires a markerlight, it cannot fire any other weapons in that phase. When a unit is hit by a markerlight, place a counter next to it for the remainder of the phase. The table below describes the benefits T’AU EMPIRE models receive when shooting at a unit that has markerlight counters. All benefits are cumulative.

MARKERLIGHT TABLE
MARKERLIGHTSBENEFIT
1You can re-roll hit rolls of 1 for T’AU EMPIRE models attacking this unit.
2Destroyer and seeker missiles fired at this unit use the firing model’s Ballistic Skill (and any modifiers) rather than only hitting on a 6.
3The target unit does not gain any bonus to its saving throws for being in cover.
4T’AU EMPIRE models attacking this unit do not suffer the penalty for moving and firing Heavy weapons or Advancing and firing Assault weapons.
5 or moreAdd 1 to hit rolls for T’AU EMPIRE models attacking this unit.
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 unit. Do not make a wound roll or saving throw (including invulnerable saves) against a mortal wound – just allocate it as you would any other wound and inflict damage to a model in the target unit as described above. Unlike normal attacks, excess damage from attacks that inflict mortal wounds is not lost. Instead keep allocating damage to another model in the target unit until either all the damage has been allocated or the target unit is destroyed.
