They are natural born leaders, merchants of death, and talented explorers with a keen eye for profit and survival. They are Rogue Traders - special agents of the Imperium with a license to do nearly anything that they deem necessary. To cross blades with such a star-faring adventurer is to invite swift defeat.

This section contains all of the datasheets that you will need in order to fight battles with your Rogue Traders miniatures. Each datasheet includes the characteristics profiles of the unit it describes, as well as any wargear and abilities it may have. Some rules are common to several Rogue Traders units – these are described below and referenced on the datasheets.

Abilities

The following abilities are common to several Rogue Traders units:

Rogue Trader Retinue

By dint of their authority or the promise of untold riches and prestige, Rogue Traders are surrounded by a wide array of followers.

This ability has no effect unless your army includes ELUCIA VHANE. If it does, you cannot set up any units with this ability before you have set up ELUCIA VHANE. When you set up ELUCIA VHANE during deployment, all units with this ability are set up at the same time. When you set up ELUCIA VHANE on the battlefield for the first time, all units with this ability must be set up within 6" of her, or they must all be set up in the same TRANSPORT as her. If they cannot be set up, they count as destroyed.

Warrant of Trade

The single most important item in the possession of any Rogue Trader, the Warrant of Trade grants great authority to its bearer throughout the Imperium, and even gives license to travel beyond its boundaries.

A model with this ability can embark onto any IMPERIUM TRANSPORT, even though the transport in question might normally only permit models with other Faction keywords to do so. All other restrictions apply normally.

Canticles of the Omnissiah

The disciples of the Omnissiah incant complex war-blessings, as much optimisation subroutines as they are expressions of faith in the Machine God.

All units with this ability gain a bonus during the battle depending on the Canticle of the Omnissiah currently being canted.

At the start of each battle round, pick which Canticle of the Omnissiah from the table below is in effect for the duration 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 below. Note that if you randomly determine a Canticle, it takes effect even if the same Canticle has been in effect earlier in the battle.

If you have a Battle-forged army, units only receive the bonus if every model in their Detachment has this ability.
D6CANTICLE
1

Incantation of the Iron Soul

Raising their voices in binharic praise, the Disciples of the Machine God bolster their spirits with the surety of iron.

You can re-roll failed Morale tests for affected units.

2

Litany of the Electromancer

Summoning the spark of the Machine God’s divinity that burns within them, the Omnissiah’s faithful manifest blazing auras of energy that lay low the unbeliever.

Roll a D6 for each enemy unit that is within 1" of any affected units; on a roll of 6, the unit being rolled for suffers D3 mortal wounds.

3

Chant of the Remorseless Fist

In spitting out a staccato chant to the Motive Force, the faithful warriors of the Cult Mechanicus are filled with merciless surety as well as intent.

You can re-roll any hit rolls of 1 for affected units in the Fight phase.

4

Shroudpsalm

Robot, servitor and priest shift their binharic emissions into visible spectra, the static pouring from their vox-grilles manifesting as an electromagnetic storm that hides them from the foe.

Affected units gain the bonus to their armour saving throws as if they were in cover. Units already in cover are unaffected.

5

Invocation of Machine Might

The Tech-Priests lead their flock in a hexadecimic prayer that sends miraculous strength surging through tendons, wires and pistons.

Affected units have +1 Strength.

6

Benediction of the Omnissiah

Those blessed enough to comprehend this blaring vox-prayer find their targeting reticules guided by the Omnissiah’s own vigilance.

You can re-roll failed hit rolls of 1 for affected units in the Shooting phase.


Acts of Faith

If your army includes any models with this ability, you will start the battle with 3 Faith Points, plus 1 additional Faith Point for every 10 models with this ability in your army (rounding down). These can be spent to attempt the Acts of Faith listed below. Each can only be attempted once per battle round, and you must spend one Faith Point each time you do so (if you have no Faith Points remaining, you cannot attempt an Act of Faith). To attempt an Act of Faith, select a unit in your army that has the Acts of Faith ability and then choose the Act of Faith you wish to attempt. Then make a Test of Faith for the unit by rolling a D6; if the result is less than that Act of Faith’s devotion value, or is an unmodified roll of 1, the test fails and nothing happens. Otherwise the test is successful and the Act of Faith takes effect.

Hand of the Emperor
Devotion value 4
Use this Act of Faith at the start of your Movement phase. If successful, add 3" to the selected unit’s Move characteristic until the end of that phase.

Spirit of the Martyr
Devotion value 3
Use this Act of Faith at the start of your Movement phase. If successful, one model in the selected unit regains D3 lost wounds, or, if there are no wounded models and any models in the unit have been slain, you can return one slain model to the unit with 1 wound remaining (this model is set up in unit coherency and cannot be set up within 1" of any enemy models – if it is not possible to place this model, it is not returned to the unit).

Aegis of the Emperor
Devotion value 3
Use this Act of Faith at the start of your opponent’s Psychic phase. If successful, then until the end of that phase, roll a D6 each time the selected unit suffers a mortal wound. On a 4+ that mortal wound is ignored.

Divine Guidance
Devotion value 4
Use this Act of Faith at the start of your Shooting phase. If successful, add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made with this unit’s ranged weapons until the end of the phase.

The Passion
Devotion value 5
Use this Act of Faith at the start of your Fight phase. If successful, the selected unit can be chosen to Fight with twice in that phase, instead of only once.

Light of the Emperor
Devotion value 3
Use this Act of Faith at the start of the Morale phase. If successful, the selected unit automatically passes Morale tests that phase.

Elucidian Starstriders Stratagems

If your army is Battle-forged and includes ELUCIA VHANE, you have access to the Stratagems shown below, meaning you can spend Command Points to activate them. These help to reflect the unique tactics and strategies used by Elucia Vhane and the Elucidian Starstriders on the battlefield.


1CP

EXECUTIONER SHELL

Elucidian Starstriders Stratagem

The executioner shell bears a tiny guidance system that seeks out the most vulnerable parts of the target.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase before Voidmaster Nitsch attacks with his artificer shotgun. Only make a single hit roll for this weapon this phase, but add 3 to the roll. If the target is hit, it suffers 1 m ortal wound instead of the norm al damage.
1CP

DIGITAL LASER REGALIA

Elucidian Starstriders Stratagem

A one-shot weapon can be hidden anywhere. At need, a button, buckle or cufflink can be activated to unleash a burst of las-fire.

Use this Stratagem immediately after fighting with ELUCIA VHANE. Resolve one additional attack against an enemy unit within 1" of her. If the attack hits, the enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds instead of the normal damage.
1CP

RECOVER ARCHEOTECH AT ANY COST

Elucidian Starstriders Stratagem

Eager to scan an area for the coveted Motive Force, the Lectro-Maester will ramp up the energies expended by his powerful voltagheist array, surrounding himself with cascades of cracking voltage.

Use this Stratagem at the end of your turn if LARSEN VAN DER GRAUSS is within 3" of an objective marker. Until the start of your next turn, add 1 to saving throws made for him and increase his Attacks characteristic by 1.
1CP

COMBAT RESUSCITATION

Elucidian Starstriders Stratagem

A potent blend of self-administered stim-charges allows Sanistasia Minst to work at unnatural speeds.

Use this Stratagem at the end of your Movement phase after SANISTASIA MINST has attempted to heal a unit. She can immediately attempt to heal a unit again (this can be the same unit or a different ELUCIDIAN STARSTRIDERS INFANTRY unit from your army).
1CP

ONE WITH THE ELECTRO MOTIVE FORCE

Elucidian Starstriders Stratagem

To be one with the Electro-Motive Force is to be so immersed in holiness as to transcend the limitations of the physical body and become a being of pure energy.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase before moving LARSEN VAN DER GRAUSS. Instead of moving him normally, remove him from the battlefield; at the end of that Movement phase, set him up anywhere on the battlefield that is more than 9" from any enemy models.
1CP

LOGIS-INTERROGATOR SCANNER

Elucidian Starstriders Stratagem

The mysterious sciences can reveal much to those who know the rites to unlock their holy secrets.

Use this Stratagem after both sides have deployed, if you are playing a mission that uses mysterious objectives (this is a rule used in some Theatres of War). Identify one mysterious objective anywhere on the battlefield. Alternatively, use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase when a LARSEN VAN DER GRAUSS model from your army is selected to shoot. Until the end of the phase, each time that model makes an attack, you can ignore any or all modifiers to the hit roll.
1CP

PERSONAL TELEPORTARIUM CHAMBER

Elucidian Starstriders Stratagem

In times of great need, Vhane will employ one of her greatest treasures - a technological relic of a lost age.

Use this Stratagem during deployment. Set up all ELUCIDIAN STARSTRIDERS units from your army in a teleportarium chamber instead of placing them on the battlefield. At the end of any of your Movement phases they can teleport into battle - set them up anywhere on the battlefield that is more than 9" from any enemy models.

Warlord Traits

If ELUCIA VHANE is your Warlord, she always has the Explorator Fleetmaster Warlord Trait, below.

Explorator Fleetmaster

To endure the untold dangers found on the outer edges of the Imperium requires more than just superlative martial skill - it takes a mastermind of logistical organisation. Only those Rogue Traders who prepare for everything can expect to survive for long.

If your army is Battle-forged, you receive 3 additional Command Points. These can only be spent to use Elucidian Starstriders Stratagems.

The Elucia Vhane keyword is used in following Rogue Traders datasheets:

Embark
If a unit makes a Normal Move, an Advance or it Falls Back, and every model in that unit ends that move within 3" of a friendly Transport model they can embark within it. A unit cannot embark within a Transport model that is within Engagement Range of enemy models, and it cannot embark if it has already disembarked from a Transport model in the same phase. Remove the unit from the battlefield and place it to one side – it is now embarked within the model.

Units cannot normally do anything or be affected in any way while they are embarked. Unless specifically stated, abilities have no effect on units while they are embarked, and Stratagems cannot be used to affect units while they are embarked. For all rules purposes, units that are embarked within a Transport model that has made a Normal Move, Advanced, Fallen Back or Remained Stationary also count as having made the same kind of move that turn.

  • Units can embark in a friendly Transport if every model ends a Normal Move, an Advance or a Fall Back within 3" of it.
  • A unit cannot embark within a Transport that is within Engagement Range of any enemy models.
  • A unit cannot embark and disembark in the same phase.
  • Units cannot do anything, or be affected in any way, while they are embarked within a Transport.
Morale Tests
To take a Morale test, roll one D6 and add the number of models from the unit that have been destroyed this turn. If the result is equal to or less than the highest Leadership (Ld) characteristic in the unit, the Morale test is passed and nothing else happens. An unmodified roll of 1 also always results in a passed Morale test, irrespective of the total result. In any other case, the Morale test is failed, one model flees that unit, and you must then take Combat Attrition tests for the remaining models in the unit. You decide which model from your unit flees – that model is removed from play and counts as having been destroyed, but it never triggers any rules that are used when a model is destroyed.

  • Morale test = D6 + number of models destroyed this turn.
  • Unmodified roll of 1 always a success (no models flee).
  • If Morale test exceeds unit’s Ld, one model flees and other models must take Combat Attrition tests.
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.
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.
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.
Terrain and Cover
Some pieces of terrain can provide certain bonuses to units in your army. Each bonus and how to acquire it is described in the Terrain Features section of the Core Rules. If a model has acquired such a bonus (to it's Save, Leadership or other characteristics), it is considered as receiving the benefit of cover. There are ways for some models to ignore such bonuses while making an attack, but it should be known what kind of benefit is ignored (see the Rare Rules for clarification).
Unit Coherency
A unit that has more than one model must be set up and finish any sort of move as a single group, with all models within 2" horizontally and 5" vertically of at least one other model from their unit. While a unit has six or more models, all models must instead be within 2" horizontally and 5" vertically of at least two other models from their unit. This is called unit coherency. If a unit cannot end any kind of move in unit coherency, that move cannot be made. Units are primarily moved in the Movement phase, but they can also be moved in the Charge phase and the Fight phase.

Some rules allow you to add models to a unit during the battle; such models must always be set up in unit coherency with the unit they are being added to. Sometimes there will be insufficient room to set up all the models from a unit, or it will not be possible to set up all the models so that they are in unit coherency. When this is the case, any models that cannot be set up are considered to have been destroyed.

  • Unit coherency: 2" horizontally + 5" vertically.
  • Each model must be in unit coherency with one other model from own unit.
  • While unit has 6+ models, each model must be in unit coherency with 2 other models from own unit.

Use this Stratagem at the end of your turn if LARSEN VAN DER GRAUSS is within 3" of an objective marker. Until the start of your next turn, add 1 to saving throws made for him and increase his Attacks characteristic by 1.
The Warlord
While mustering your army, you can nominate one model (except a model with the FORTIFICATION keyword) to be your Warlord. That model gains the WARLORD keyword. If this model is a CHARACTER, you can also assign a Warlord Trait to it. Note, that more than one model in your army can have a Warlord Trait (e.g. by using Stratagems), but they are only considered your Warlord for the purpose of that trait.
Command Points
The starting number of CPs each player starts with for Battle-forging their army depends on the size of the battle you are playing. This is usually defined in the mission pack that is being played, but if one is not presented in the mission pack, use the following table. Note that the total Power Level is based on the combined power of all the models used in the battle (so the combined Power Level of both your and your opponent's armies). If you are using a game that uses points values, then the points limit is the maximum points limit per side.

  1. If a Blast weapon targets a unit that has between 6 and 10 models, it always makes a minimum of 3 attacks. So if, when determining how many attacks are made with that weapon, the dice rolled results in less than 3 attacks being made, make 3 attacks instead. For example, if a Grenade D6 weapon with the Blast rule targets a unit that has 6 or more models, and you roll a 2 to determine how many attacks are made, that roll is counted as being a 3 and that weapon makes three attacks against that unit.
  2. When a Blast weapon targets a unit that has 11 or more models, do not roll dice to randomly determine how many attacks are made – instead, make the maximum possible number of attacks. For example, if a Grenade D6 weapon with the Blast rule targets a unit that has 11 or more models, that weapon makes six attacks against that unit.
Blast weapons can never be used to make attacks against a unit that is within Engagement Range of the firing model’s unit, even if the weapon has the Pistol type or if the firing model is a Vehicle or a Monster – firing high-explosives at point-blank range is simply unwise.

  • Blast Weapons: Minimum three attacks against units with 6+ models. Always make maximum number of attacks against units with 11+ models.
  • Can never be used to attack units within the firing unit’s Engagement Range.
GRENADE
Grenades are handheld explosive devices that a warrior throws at the enemy while their squad mates provide covering fire.
When a unit shoots, one model that is equipped with a Grenade in that unit can resolve attacks with it instead of shooting any other weapons.

  • Only one model can use a Grenade when its unit shoots.

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.

PISTOL
Due to their compact size, pistols can even be used in melee to shoot at point-blank range.
A model can make attacks with a Pistol even when its unit is within Engagement Range of enemy units, but it must target an enemy unit that is within Engagement Range of its own unit when it does so. In such circumstances, the model can target an enemy unit even if other friendly units are within Engagement Range of the same enemy unit.

When a model equipped with both a Pistol and another type of ranged weapon (e.g. a Pistol and a Rapid Fire weapon) shoots, it can either shoot with its Pistol(s) or with its other ranged weapons. Choose which it will fire (Pistols or non-Pistols) before selecting targets.

  • Can be shot even if firing model’s unit is within Engagement Range of enemy unit.
  • Cannot be shot alongside any other type of weapon.

RAPID FIRE
Rapid fire weapons are versatile armaments capable of aimed single shots at long range or controlled bursts of fire at close quarters.
When a model shoots a Rapid Fire weapon, double the number of attacks it makes if its target is within half the weapon’s range.

  • Double number of attacks made if target is within half range.

HEAVY
Heavy weapons are amongst the biggest guns on the battlefield, but they require bracing to fire at full effect and are unwieldy to bring to bear at close quarters.
When an Infantry model shoots a Heavy weapon, subtract 1 from the hit rolls when resolving that weapon’s attacks if the firing model’s unit has moved for any reason this turn (e.g. it made a Normal Move this turn).

  • Subtract 1 from hit rolls if firing model is Infantry and its unit has moved this turn.

Look out, Sir
Models cannot target a unit that contains any Character models with a Wounds characteristic of 9 or less with a ranged weapon while that Character unit is within 3" of any of the following:
  • A friendly unit that contains 1 or more Vehicle or Monster models with a wounds characteristic of 10 or more.
  • A friendly non-Character unit that contains 1 or more Vehicle or Monster models.
  • A friendly non-Character unit that contains 3 or more models.
In all cases, if that Character unit is both visible to the firing model and it is the closest enemy unit to the firing model, it can be targeted normally. When determining if that Character unit is the closest enemy unit to the firing model, ignore other enemy units that contain any Character models with a Wounds characteristics of 9 or less.

  • Cannot shoot at an enemy Character with 9 or less wounds while it is within 3" of a friendly unit that contains 1 Monster, 1 Vehicle or 3+ other models (excluding Character models with 9 or less wounds) unless it is the closest target.
Wound Roll
Each time an attack scores a hit against a target unit, make a wound roll for that attack by rolling one D6 to see if that attack successfully wounds the target. The result required is determined by comparing the attacking weapon’s Strength (S) characteristic with the target’s Toughness (T) 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 result of the wound roll is less than the required number, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified wound roll of 6 always successfully wounds the target, and an unmodified wound roll of 1 always fails. A wound roll can never be modified by more than -1 or +1. This means that if, after all the cumulative modifiers to a wound 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 wound roll have been calculated, the total modifier would be +2 or better, it is changed to be +1.

Select Weapon
When a model makes a close combat attack, it must do so using a melee weapon (i.e. a weapon that has the ‘Melee’ type). The weapons a model is equipped with are described on its datasheet. If a model is not equipped with any melee weapons, or if it cannot make an attack with any of the melee weapons it is equipped with, then that model makes its attacks using a close combat weapon, which has the following profile:

WEAPONRANGETYPESAPD
Close combat weaponMeleeMeleeUser01

If a model has more than one melee weapon, select which it will use before resolving any attacks. If a model has more than one melee weapon and can make several attacks, it can split them between these weapons however you wish – declare which attacks are being made with which weapons before any attacks are resolved. If the selected weapon has more than one profile that you must choose between, you must declare which profile is being used at the same time. Different attacks made with such a weapon can be made using different profiles if you wish.

If your unit is making attacks with more than one melee weapon against a unit, and those weapons have different characteristics profiles, then after you have resolved an attack with one of those weapons you must, if any other weapons with the same characteristics profile are also being used to make attacks against that unit, resolve those attacks before resolving any attacks against the target with a weapon that has a different characteristics profile. Note that all the attacks you have declared are always resolved against the target unit even if, when you come to resolve an individual attack, no models in the target unit remain in range (this can happen because of models being destroyed and removed from the battlefield as the result of resolving other attacks made by the attacking model’s unit first).

  • Each close combat attack is made with a melee weapon.
  • A model makes attacks using the close combat weapon profile if it has no other melee weapons.
  • If a unit attacks with multiple weapons, all attacks made with weapons that have the same profile must be resolved before resolving attacks with the next.
