POWERS OF THE C’TAN
POWERS OF THE C’TAN
This model knows four C’tan Powers from the Powers of the C’tan. At the end of your Movement phase, if this model did not Advance or Fall Back that phase, it can use a number of C’tan Powers it knows equal to the number in the table below. It cannot use the same C’tan Power more than once per turn.

Datasheet-related Stratagems

STRANGE ECHOES1CP
Necrons – Epic Deed Stratagem

Battling its imprisonment, this C'tan Shard shows a flicker of will as it moulds its powers anew to the alarm of friend and foe alike.

Use this Stratagem in your Command phase. Select one C'TAN SHARD model from your army. Select one of the powers from the Powers of the C'tan that the model does not know. The selected power replaces one of the Powers of the C'tan that the model does know.
DIMENSIONAL DESTABILISATION2CP/1CP
Necrons – Epic Deed Stratagem

As the powers of this C'tan Shard reshape reality, its aftershocks roll across the battlefield, triggering further cosmic phenomena.

Use this Stratagem at the end of your Movement phase, when a C'TAN SHARD model from your army has used a Power of the C'tan. Roll one D6; that model can immediately use the corresponding power from the Powers of the C'tan, even if it has already been used this turn. If that model has the TITANIC keyword, this Stratagem costs 2CP; otherwise it costs 1CP.
ENTROPIC STRIKE2CP
Necrons – Epic Deed Stratagem

With every clenched fist, searing gaze and contemptuous gesture, the C'tan Shard obliterates from existence the matter that comprises its enemies.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a C'TAN SHARD model from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a melee attack is made by that model, invulnerable saving throws cannot be taken against that attack.
STELLAR ALIGNMENT PROTOCOL2CP/1CP
Necrons – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Driven by Cryptek manipulation, a key Necron war engine activates backup systems in order to fulfil its crucial pre-aligned role in the wider battle plan.

Use this Stratagem in the Command phase. Select one NECRONS VEHICLE model from your army that has a Wounds characteristic of 10 or more. Until the start of your next Command phase, that model is considered to have its full wounds remaining for the purposes of determining what characteristics on its profile to use. If that model has the TITANIC keyword, this Stratagem costs 2CP; otherwise it costs 1CP.
CURSE OF THE PHAERON3CP/1CP
Necrons – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Necron nobles are jealously protective of their armoury - should foes destroy such a jewel of the dynastic hoard, they risk triggering vengeance protocols intended to demonstrate the Necrons' displeasure in an explosive fashion.

Use this Stratagem in any phase, when a NECRONS VEHICLE model from your army is destroyed. Do not roll to see if that model explodes: it does so automatically. If that model has the TITANIC keyword, this Stratagem costs 3CP; otherwise it costs 1 CP.

This datasheet has Lords of War Battlefield Role. Full list of Necrons units sharing same Battlefield Role follows:

Tesla sphere used in following datasheets:

Hit Roll
When a model makes an attack, make one hit roll for that attack by rolling one D6. If the result of the hit roll is equal to or greater than the attacking model’s Ballistic Skill (BS) characteristic (if the attack is being made with a ranged weapon) or its Weapon Skill (WS) characteristic (if the attack is being made with a melee weapon), then that attack scores one hit against the target unit. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends.

If an attack is made with a weapon that has an ability that says it ‘automatically hits the target’, no hit roll is made – that attack simply scores one hit on the target unit. An unmodified hit roll of 6 always scores a hit, and an unmodified hit roll of 1 always fails. A hit roll can never be modified by more than -1 or +1. This means that if, after all the cumulative modifiers to a hit roll have been calculated, the total modifier would be -2 or worse, it is changed to be -1. Similarly, if, after all the cumulative modifiers to a hit roll have been calculated, the total modifier would be +2 or better, it is changed to be +1.
ASSAULT
Assault weapons fire so rapidly or indiscriminately that they can be shot from the hip as warriors dash forwards into combat.
If a unit includes any models equipped with Assault weapons, that unit is still eligible to shoot with in your Shooting phase even if it has Advanced this turn, but you can only resolve attacks using those Assault weapons when you select that unit to shoot with. If a model shoots an Assault weapon in the same turn in which its unit has Advanced, subtract 1 from hit rolls when resolving that weapon’s attacks.

  • Can be shot even if firing model’s unit Advanced.
  • Subtract 1 from hit rolls if the firing model’s unit Advanced.
Living Metal

The Necrons' semi-sentient metal skin lets them heal mid-battle.

At the start of your Command phase, each model in this unit regains 1 lost wound.
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 1 point of damage on the target unit, and they are always applied one at a time. Do not make a wound roll or saving throw (including invulnerable saves) against a mortal wound – just allocate it as you would any other attack and inflict damage to a model in the target unit. Unlike damage inflicted by normal attacks, excess damage from 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.

If an attack inflicts mortal wounds in addition to the normal damage, resolve the normal damage first. If an attack inflicts mortal wounds in addition to the normal damage, but the normal damage is subsequently saved, the target unit still suffers the mortal wounds, as described before. If an ability modifies the damage inflicted by a weapon, and that weapon can inflict mortal wounds in addition to the normal damage, the modifier does not apply to any mortal wounds that are inflicted (unless the rule specifically states otherwise).

  • Each mortal wound inflicted on a unit causes one model in the unit to lose one wound.
  • No saving throws can be made against mortal wounds.
  • Mortal wounds inflicted by attacks in addition to normal damage always apply, even if normal damage saved.
Saving Throw
The player commanding the target unit then makes one saving throw by rolling one D6 and modifying the roll by the Armour Penetration (AP) characteristic of the weapon that the attack was made with. For example, if the weapon has an AP of -1, then 1 is subtracted from the saving throw roll. If the result is equal to, or greater than, the Save (Sv) characteristic of the model the attack was allocated to, then the saving throw is successful 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 roll of 1 always fails.
Invulnerable Saves
Some models have an invulnerable save. Each time an attack is allocated to a model with an invulnerable save, you can choose to use either its normal Save (Sv) characteristic or its invulnerable save, but not both. If a model has more than one invulnerable save, it can only use one of them – choose which it will use. If you use a model’s invulnerable save, it is never modified by a weapon’s Armour Penetration value.

  • Invulnerable save: Saving throw that is never modified by attacking weapon’s AP.
  • A model with an invulnerable save can use it instead of its normal Sv.
Advance
When a unit makes an Advance, make an Advance roll for the unit by rolling one D6. Add the result in inches to the Move (M) characteristic of each model in that unit until the end of the current phase. Each model in that unit can then move a distance in inches equal to or less than this total, but no model can be moved within Engagement Range of enemy models. A unit cannot shoot or declare a charge in the same turn that it made an Advance.

  • Advance: Models move up to M+D6".
  • Cannot move within Engagement Range of enemy models.
  • Units that Advance cannot shoot or charge this turn.
Fall Back
When a unit Falls Back, each model in that unit can move a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move (M) characteristic shown on its datasheet, and when doing so you can move it within Engagement Range of enemy models, but it cannot end its move within Engagement Range of any enemy models – if it cannot do this then it cannot Fall Back. A unit cannot declare a charge in the same turn that it Fell Back. A unit cannot shoot or attempt to manifest a psychic power in the same turn that it Fell Back unless it is TITANIC.

  • Fall Back: Models move up to M".
  • Units that Fall Back cannot charge this turn.
  • Units that Fall Back cannot shoot or manifest psychic powers this turn unless they are TITANIC.

The TITANIC keyword is used in following Necrons datasheets:

Saving Throw
The player commanding the target unit then makes one saving throw by rolling one D6 and modifying the roll by the Armour Penetration (AP) characteristic of the weapon that the attack was made with. For example, if the weapon has an AP of -1, then 1 is subtracted from the saving throw roll. If the result is equal to, or greater than, the Save (Sv) characteristic of the model the attack was allocated to, then the saving throw is successful 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 roll of 1 always fails.
Invulnerable Saves
Some models have an invulnerable save. Each time an attack is allocated to a model with an invulnerable save, you can choose to use either its normal Save (Sv) characteristic or its invulnerable save, but not both. If a model has more than one invulnerable save, it can only use one of them – choose which it will use. If you use a model’s invulnerable save, it is never modified by a weapon’s Armour Penetration value.

  • Invulnerable save: Saving throw that is never modified by attacking weapon’s AP.
  • A model with an invulnerable save can use it instead of its normal Sv.
