Datasheet-related Stratagems

WIND-SWIFT2CP
White Scars – Battle Tactic Stratagem

It is said on Chogoris that the sons of the Khan ride the stormwinds themselves, racing swift and wrathful into war.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase after a WHITE SCARS unit (excluding ARTILLERY) from your army has made a Normal Move or has Fallen Back. That unit can make an Advance move. Until the end of the turn, that unit cannot shoot, declare a charge or attempt to manifest any psychic powers.
GENE-WROUGHT MIGHT1CP
Adeptus Astartes – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Blessed with incredible strength, Primaris Space Marines deliver blows that inflict terrifying damage.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a PRIMARIS unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes a melee attack, an unmodified hit roll of 6 automatically wounds the target.
TRANSHUMAN PHYSIOLOGY1CP/2CP
Adeptus Astartes – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Space Marines can fight through even the most grievous of wounds.

Use this Stratagem in any phase, when a PRIMARIS unit from your army is selected as the target of an attack. Until the end of the phase, each time an attack is made against that unit, an unmodified wound roll of 1-3 for that attack fails, irrespective of any abilities that the weapon or the model making the attack may have. If that unit contains 5 or fewer models, this Stratagem costs 1CP; otherwise, it costs 2CP.
HONOUR THE CHAPTER2CP
Adeptus Astartes – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Every Chapter has forged its own tales of heroism, and none of its battle-brothers would see that noble record besmirched.

Use this Stratagem at the end of the Fight phase. Select one ASSAULT INTERCESSOR SQUAD unit from your army that is within Engagement Range of any enemy units; that unit can fight again.
LINE UNBREAKABLE1CP
Dark Angels – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Many foes have charged the Dark Angels’ lines, only to be met by an unbreakable wall of ceramite.

Use this Stratagem at the start of the Fight phase. Select one DARK ANGELS INFANTRY unit from your army. Until the end of the phase, that unit can only be selected as a target for melee attacks if the attacking model is within Engagement Range of it (note that this means that enemy models that are not within Engagement Range but are within 1/2" of a model from their own unit that is itself within 1/2" of this DARK ANGELS INFANTRY unit cannot target it with melee attacks this phase).
AGGRESSIVE ONSLAUGHT1CP
Flesh Tearers – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Flesh Tearers constantly push towards new foes, moving one step closer to engaging the enemy and sating their lust to kill.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase. Select one FLESH TEARERS INFANTRY unit from your army. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes a pile-in or consolidation move, it can move up to an additional 3".
CLAIM RUNES1CP
Silver Templars – Battle Tactic Stratagem

When faced with overwhelming numbers, the Silver Templars employ a system of rune-marking their chosen targets on their autosenses, allowing for pinpoint and hyper-efficient slaughter.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a SILVER TEMPLARS PRIMARIS unit from your army is selected to fight. If, when it was selected to fight, that unit was within Engagement Range of an enemy unit containing more models than itself, then until the end of the phase, each time a model in that SILVER TEMPLARS unit makes an attack:
  • Add 1 to the Strength characteristic of that attack.
  • Improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of that attack by 1.
THE SWORDSMAN’S STRIKE1CP/2CP
Silver Templars – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The Silver Templars view all battles, no matter their scale, as a duel between two gestalt opposed combatants. Their battle strategies thus focus on how best to deliver the killing blow that swiftly and decisively ends that duel.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a SILVER TEMPLARS PRIMARIS CORE unit from your army is selected to shoot, or in the Fight phase, when a SILVER TEMPLARS PRIMARIS CORE unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes an attack against a CHARACTER unit, add 1 to that attack’s hit roll. If that unit contains 5 or fewer models, this Stratagem costs 1CP; otherwise, it costs 2CP.
CAST OUT THY BLACKENED SOUL2CP
Exorcists – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Daemonic possession gives each battle-brother of the Exorcists a personal revelation about the nature of daemonkind, and with this knowledge they banish their foe.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when an EXORCISTS CORE or EXORCISTS CHARACTER unit from your army is selected to shoot, or the Fight phase, when an EXORCISTS CORE or EXORCISTS CHARACTER unit from your army is selected to fight. Select one enemy CHAOS DAEMON unit within 12" of that unit. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that friendly unit makes an attack against that enemy unit, you can re-roll the wound roll.
HEALING BALMS1CP
Space Wolves – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Learned in arcane biomechanics and chirurgery, Wolf Priests apply their rough surgery, shamanistic rites and medicinal balms to drag warriors back from the gates of Morkai’s realm of death.

Use this Stratagem at the end of your Movement phase. Select one SPACE WOLVES INFANTRY, SPACE WOLVES BIKER or SPACE WOLVES CAVALRY model from your army within 3" of a friendly SPACE WOLVES WOLF PRIEST to be healed. That model regains up to D3 lost wounds. Each model can only be healed once per turn.
CUNNING OF THE WOLF1CP
Space Wolves – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The most successful hunts are those where the prey doesn’t know they are being hunted.

Use this Stratagem during deployment. Select one SPACE WOLVES INFANTRY unit from your army. All models in that unit gain the Outflank ability.
FIGHT AS BROTHERS2CP
Emperor’s Spears – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Having spent years relying on their trusted brothers, when Emperor’s Spears fight together, little can stay their blows.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when an EMPEROR’S SPEARS INFANTRY unit from your army is selected to fight. Select one enemy unit within Engagement Range of that unit and one or more other friendly EMPEROR’S SPEARS INFANTRY units. Until the end of the phase, each time a friendly EMPEROR’S SPEARS INFANTRY unit makes a melee attack against that unit, you can re-roll the hit roll.
SKOVAKARAH UHL ZAÛRN!1CP/2CP
Emperor’s Spears – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The battle cry of the Emperor’s Spears is the call that precedes their red work.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when an EMPEROR’S SPEARS CORE or EMPEROR’S SPEARS CHARACTER unit from your army that made a charge move, was charged or performed a Heroic Intervention this turn is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes a melee attack, add 1 to that attack’s wound roll. If that unit contains 5 or fewer models, this Stratagem costs 1CP; otherwise, it costs 2CP.
VICIOUS RIPOSTE1CP
Black Templars – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Every blow against a Black Templar is answered in kind.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a BLACK TEMPLARS INFANTRY unit from your army is chosen as the target of an attack. Until the end of that phase, each time a melee attack is allocated to a model in that unit, on an unmodified save roll of 6 the attacking model’s unit suffers 1 mortal wound after it has finished fighting. Note that a saving throw can be taken even if, due to the Armour Penetration characteristic of the attack, it would not be possible to make a successful saving throw. Also note that once the last model in this unit is destroyed, any remaining wounds cannot be allocated (so no further saving throws can be made).
SONS OF GUILLIMAN1CP
Ultramarines – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Ultramarines fight as the Codex dictates, eschewing individual glory to function as a disciplined, cohesive killing machine.

Use this Stratagem when an ULTRAMARINES INFANTRY or ULTRAMARINES BIKER unit from your army is chosen to shoot with in your Shooting phase or fight with in the Fight phase. If that unit has the Troops Battlefield Role, until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made by that unit, you can re-roll a hit roll. Otherwise, until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made by that unit, you can re-roll a hit roll of 1.
LAY LOW THE TYRANTS1CP
Raven Guard – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Those who would abuse their strength to oppress the weak and humble are amongst the Raven Guard’s most favoured prey.

Use this Stratagem when a RAVEN GUARD INFANTRY unit or RAVEN GUARD BIKER unit from your army is chosen to fight with in the Fight phase. Until the end of the phase, when resolving an attack made by a model in that unit against a CHARACTER unit that is not a VEHICLE, or against a unit that is not a VEHICLE and contains any models with a Wounds characteristic of 4 or more, add 1 to the wound roll.
REJECT THE FLESH, EMBRACE THE MACHINE1CP
Iron Hands – Battle Tactic Stratagem

By trusting in the ironclad gifts of the Omnissiah that stud their flesh, the Iron Hands can withstand even the most punishing attacks of their enemies.

Use this Stratagem in any phase, when an IRON HANDS INFANTRY unit from your army is chosen as the target for an attack. Until the end of that phase, when a model in that unit would lose a wound, roll one D6, adding 1 to the result if that model has the All Flesh is Weakness Warlord Trait. On a 5+ that wound is not lost.
BOLTER DRILL2CP
Imperial Fists – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The sons of Dorn maintain strict fire discipline, standing shoulder to shoulder as they unleash devastating volleys of bolt rounds into the foe.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when you choose an IMPERIAL FISTS CORE or IMPERIAL FISTS CHARACTER unit from your army to shoot with. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made by a model in that unit with a bolt weapon, an unmodified hit roll of 6 scores 1 additional hit.
THE SHIELD UNWAVERING2CP
Imperial Fists – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Once the Imperial Fists have captured a site of strategic importance, they dig in and hold their position no matter what the enemy hurls at them.

Use this Stratagem at the end of your Morale phase. Select one IMPERIAL FISTS INFANTRY unit from your army that is within 3" of any objective markers. Until the start of your next turn, add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of models in that unit, and when resolving an attack made against that unit, add 1 to the saving throw (excluding invulnerable saves).
DEVOUT PUSH1CP
Black Templars – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The Black Templars hurl themselves into the enemy ranks.

Use this Stratagem at the start of the Fight phase. Select one BLACK TEMPLARS INFANTRY unit or one BLACK TEMPLARS BIKER unit from your army. That unit can immediately pile in, even if it is not within Engagement Range of any enemy units, and, until the end of the phase, when that unit consolidates, it can move up to 6" instead of 3".
STAND YOUR GROUND1CP
Salamanders – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Such is their famed endurance that the Salamanders are able to stand firm amidst storms of small-arms fire and lesser blows.

Use this Stratagem in any phase, when a SALAMANDERS INFANTRY unit from your army that is not a SERVITOR and did not Advance in this phase or your previous Movement phase is chosen as the target for an attack. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made with a weapon that has a Damage characteristic of 1 against a model in that unit, add 1 to the saving throw. This does not affect invulnerable saving throws.
THE CRUCIBLE OF BATTLE1CP
Salamanders – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Only where the battle is fiercest and the enemy can be faced eye to eye can the Salamanders truly be tested.

Use this Stratagem in the Shooting or Fight phase, when a SALAMANDERS CORE or SALAMANDERS CHARACTER unit from your army is chosen to shoot or fight with. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made by a model in that unit, add 1 to the wound roll.
MARKED FOR COMMAND1CP
Dark Angels – Requisition Stratagem

On occasion, a junior-ranking leader will demonstrate ability expected only of those of much loftier rank. Such individuals are highly rewarded, and marked for greater things.

Use this Stratagem before the battle. Select one DARK ANGELS Ravenwing Huntmaster or Knight Master model or a DARK ANGELS model from your army that has the word ‘Sergeant’ in their profile. That model can have one of the following Special-issue Wargear Relics, even though they are not a CHARACTER: Master-crafted Weapon; Digital Weapons; Atonement; Bolts of Judgement. Each Relic in your army must be unique, and you cannot use this Stratagem to give a model two Relics. You can only use this Stratagem once.
COGITATED MARTYRDOM1CP
Iron Hands – Requisition Stratagem

It is not a difficult sum for a warrior of the Iron Hands to cogitate, that his commanding officers’ lives are worth more to the Imperium than his own.

Use this Stratagem at the start of the Shooting phase. Select one IRON HANDS INFANTRY unit from your army. Until the end of the phase, when a friendly IRON HANDS CHARACTER model (excluding VEHICLE models) within 3" of that unit would lose any wounds as a result of an attack made against that model, that unit can attempt to intercept that attack. Roll one D6 before any rolls to ignore wounds (e.g. The Flesh is Weak, Adamantine Mantle etc.) are made; on a 2+ that model does not lose those wounds and that unit suffers 1 mortal wound for each of those wounds. Only one attempt can be made to intercept each attack.
ORISON CULT1CP/2CP
Exorcists – Requisition Stratagem

The Chapter houses a series of cults, each a proud sub-sect with traditions and associations concerning the role of a battle-brother on the battlefield.

Use this Stratagem before the battle, when you are mustering your army, if every unit in your army has the ADEPTUS ASTARTES keyword (excluding AGENT OF THE IMPERIUM and UNALIGNED units). Select one EXORCISTS CORE or EXORCISTS CHARACTER unit from your army, then select one combat doctrine. Once per battle, in your Command phase, you can select that combat doctrine to be active for that unit instead of any other combat doctrine until the start of your next Command phase. If that unit contains 5 or fewer models, this Stratagem costs 1CP; otherwise, it costs 2CP.
THANE OF THE RETINUE1CP
Space Wolves – Requisition Stratagem

The lords of the Fang are stern but generous masters, who may reward a worthy warrior with an artefact of great power.

Use this Stratagem before the battle, when you are mustering your army, if your WARLORD has the SPACE WOLVES keyword. Select one SPACE WOLVES model from your army that has the word ‘Sergeant’ or ‘Pack Leader’ in their profile. That model can have one of the following Special-issue Wargear Relics, even though they are not a CHARACTER: Master-crafted Weapon; Digital Weapons; Frost Weapon; Morkai’s Teeth Bolts. Each Relic in your army must be unique, and you cannot use this Stratagem to give a model two Relics. You can only use this Stratagem once.
THE EMPEROR’S WILL1CP
Black Templars – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

It is the divine command of the God-Emperor that the Black Templars bring ruin to Humanity’s foes.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when a BLACK TEMPLARS INFANTRY unit from your army Advances. Until the end of the turn:
  • Models from that unit can still shoot with their Pistol weapons.
  • That unit is eligible to declare a charge with, even though it Advanced this turn.
BUTCHERED QUARRY1CP
White Scars – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Many attempt to flee from the White Scars’ wrath like prey put to flight. Yet the huntsmen of Chogoris are not so easily evaded.

Use this Stratagem when an enemy unit Falls Back within 1" of any WHITE SCARS INFANTRY or WHITE SCARS BIKER units from your army, before it moves. Select one of those WHITE SCARS units that is not within 1" of any other enemy units; each model in the selected unit can make one attack with a melee weapon against that enemy unit as if they were within 1" of it. After these attacks are made, if that enemy unit is not destroyed, it can then make its Fall Back move; after it has moved, each model in the selected unit can move up to 3", so long as they end this move closer to that enemy unit and not within 1" of any enemy units.
STEADY ADVANCE2CP
Adeptus Astartes – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

A measured advance allows Space Marines to unleash a steady stream of fire.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when an ADEPTUS ASTARTES INFANTRY unit from your army makes a Normal Move. Until the end of the turn, that unit is considered to have Remained Stationary.
UNCOMPROMISING FIRE2CP
Adeptus Astartes – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Switching weapons to full auto, the Space Marines unleash a short-lived but inescapable hail of fire.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase. Select one ADEPTUS ASTARTES INFANTRY unit from your army that is performing an action. That unit can shoot this phase without that action failing.
SQUAD DOCTRINES1CP
Ultramarines – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Each squad within an Ultramarines strike force at war is ready to switch to a new combat doctrine at a moment’s notice.

Use this Stratagem at the start of your Movement phase. Select one ULTRAMARINES INFANTRY or ULTRAMARINES BIKER unit from your army, then select either the Devastator, Tactical or Assault Doctrine. Until the start of your next Movement phase, that unit gains the bonus of that combat doctrine instead of the active combat doctrine.
INFILTRATORS1CP
Raven Guard – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The Raven Guard are masters of infiltration, slipping unseen across the battlefield before striking from the shadows to annihilate their foes with gun and blade.

Use this Stratagem at the start of the first battle round, before the first turn begins. Select one RAVEN GUARD INFANTRY unit from your army that is on the battlefield. That unit can move as if it were your Movement phase. The unit must end that move more than 9" away from any enemy models. If both players have units that can do this, the player who is taking the first turn moves their units first. Each unit can only be selected for this Stratagem once per battle.
SELF SACRIFICE2CP
Salamanders – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The Salamanders are amongst the most noble and selfless of the Adeptus Astartes, laying down their lives in others’ defence.

Use this Stratagem at the start of your opponent’s Shooting phase. Select one SALAMANDERS INFANTRY unit that contains 5 or more models from your army that is not within 1" of any enemy units, and then select one other INFANTRY unit from your army that is wholly within 6" of the selected unit. Until the end of the phase, your opponent cannot target the second unit you selected unless that unit is the closest enemy unit to the firing model and visible to it, or it is no longer wholly within 6" of the first unit you selected. In addition, until the end of the phase, the first unit you selected is always an eligible target for enemy shooting attacks provided it is within range and is visible to the firing model (i.e. it can be targeted even whilst under the effects of any rules that would prevent it from being targeted, such as the Shrouding psychic power).
TELEPORTARIUM1CP
Deathwatch – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Utilising the arcane secrets of teleportation technology, the Deathwatch burst from nowhere to attack.

Use this Stratagem during deployment. Select one DEATHWATCH INFANTRY, DEATHWATCH DREADNOUGHT or DEATHWATCH BIKER unit from your army. All models in that unit gain the Teleport Strike ability. You can only use this Stratagem once, unless you are playing a Strike Force battle (in which case you can use this Stratagem twice), or an Onslaught battle (in which case you can use this Stratagem three times).
STRIKE FROM THE SHADOWS1CP
Raven Guard – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The deadliest strike comes always from the least expected quarter. So taught Corax.

Use this Stratagem during the Declare Reserves and Transports step of your mission. Select one RAVEN GUARD INFANTRY unit from your army. You can set up that unit in ambush instead of setting it up on the battlefield. If you do, at the end of one of your Movement phases you can set up that unit anywhere on the battlefield that is more than 9" away from any enemy models.
A DEADLY PRIZE1CP
Raven Guard – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

If critical objectives look close to falling into enemy hands, the Raven Guard will often plant explosives to deny their capture.

Use this Stratagem at the end of your turn. Select one objective marker that is within 3" of any RAVEN GUARD INFANTRY units from your army and not within 3" of any enemy units. The next time an enemy unit ends a move within 3" of that objective marker, roll one D6; on a 2-4, that enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds; on a 5+ it suffers 3 mortal wounds. You cannot use this Stratagem on the same objective marker more than once per battle.
TENACIOUS ASSAULT2CP
Black Templars – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The Black Templars rarely permit their foes to retreat.

Use this Stratagem in your opponent’s Movement phase, when an enemy INFANTRY unit within Engagement Range of any BLACK TEMPLARS INFANTRY units from your army is chosen to Fall Back. Roll one D6: on a 2+, that enemy unit cannot Fall Back this turn.
BESTIAL NATURE1CP
Space Wolves – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Every son of Russ feels the instinctive feral impulses flood through them in battle, a howling and vicious urge to hunt.

Use this Stratagem in your Command phase if a combat doctrine is active for your army. Select one SPACE WOLVES INFANTRY, SPACE WOLVES CAVALRY or SPACE WOLVES BIKER unit from your army. Until the start of your next Command phase, that unit gains the bonus of the Assault Doctrine instead of the active combat doctrine.
KEEN SENSES1CP
Space Wolves – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The heightened senses of the Space Wolves allow them to sniff out prey wherever, or however, it is hidden.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase. Select one SPACE WOLVES INFANTRY, SPACE WOLVES BIKER or SPACE WOLVES CAVALRY unit from your army. Until the end of the turn, you can ignore any or all hit roll, Ballistic skill and Weapon skill modifiers, and each time you make a charge roll for that unit, you can ignore any or all modifiers to that charge roll.
CLOSE-RANGE BOLTER FIRE2CP
Imperial Fists – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The ability to hose your foe in bolter fire while battling toe to toe has proven vital across countless trenches and battlements.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when you choose an IMPERIAL FISTS CORE or IMPERIAL FISTS CHARACTER unit from your army to shoot with. Until the end of that phase, bolt weapons models in that unit are equipped with have the Pistol type instead of their normal type (e.g. a Rapid Fire 2 bolt weapon becomes Pistol 2).
WEAPONS FROM THE DARK AGE2CP
Dark Angels – Wargear Stratagem

The Rock’s Armoury houses all manner of ancient wonders.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a DARK ANGELS unit from your army is selected to shoot. Until the end of the phase, add 1 to the Damage characteristic of plasma weapons models in that unit are equipped with.
SPECIAL-ISSUE LOADOUT2CP
Deathwatch – Wargear Stratagem

Individual shells are loaded when optimised volleys are required.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when you select a DEATHWATCH INFANTRY unit from your army to shoot. Until the end of the phase, bolt weapons (excluding bolt sniper rifles) without the Special-issue Ammunition ability that models in that unit are equipped with gain that Special-issue Ammunition ability and their Type characteristic is changed to Heavy 1.
AUSPEX SCAN2CP
Adeptus Astartes – Wargear Stratagem

Nearby motion and radiation signatures are detected by a handheld device, forewarning the bearer of ambushes.

Use this Stratagem at the end of the Reinforcements step of your opponent's Movement phase. Select one ADEPTUS ASTARTES INFANTRY unit from your army that is not within Engagement Range of any enemy units. That unit can shoot as if it were your Shooting phase, but its models can only target a single eligible enemy unit that was set up as Reinforcements this turn and that is within 12" of their unit when doing so.
1CP

BOLTER DRILL

Crimson Fists Stratagem

The Crimson Fists maintain strict fire discipline at all times, standing shoulder to shoulder with their battle-brothers as they unleash devastatingly accurate volleys of bolter fire into the foe.

Use this Stratagem just before a CRIMSON FISTS INFANTRY unit attacks in the Shooting phase. Until the end of the phase, each time you make a hit roll of 6+ for a model from that unit firing a bolt weapon, that model can immediately make another hit roll using the same weapon at the same target (these bonus attacks cannot themselves generate any further attacks). For the purposes of this Stratagem, a bolt weapon is any weapon profile whose name includes the word 'bolt’ (e.g. boltgun, bolt rifle, heavy' bolter, boltstorm gauntlet). Duty’s Burden and Pedro Kantor’s Dorn’s Arrow are also bolt weapons.
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.
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.
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.

Frag grenades used in following datasheets:

Blast Weapons
Some weapons have ‘Blast’ listed in their profile’s abilities. These are referred to as Blast weapons. In addition to the normal rules, the following rules apply to Blast weapons:
  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.

Angels of Death

Space Marines are amongst the finest warriors in the Imperium.

This unit has the following abilities, which are described below: And They Shall Know No Fear; Bolter Discipline; Shock Assault; Combat Doctrines.
Combat Squads

Space Marine squads can break down into smaller, tactically flexible formations known as combat squads.

At the start of deployment, before any units have been set up, if this unit contains the maximum number of models that it can, then it can be split into two units containing as equal a number of models as possible. When splitting a unit using this ability, make a note of which models form each of the two new units.

The ARTILLERY keyword is used in following Space Marines datasheets:

Normal Move
When a unit makes a Normal Move, each model in that unit can move a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move (M) characteristic shown on its datasheet, but no model can be moved within Engagement Range of enemy models.

  • Normal Move: Models move up to M".
  • Cannot move within Engagement Range of any enemy models.
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.
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.
Engagement Range
Engagement Range represents the zone of threat that models present to their enemies. While a model is within 1" horizontally and 5" vertically of an enemy model, those models are within Engagement Range of each other. While two enemy models are within Engagement Range of each other, those models’ units are also within Engagement Range of each other. Models cannot be set up within Engagement Range of enemy models.

  • Engagement Range: 1" horizontally + 5" vertically.
  • Models cannot be set up within Engagement Range of enemy models.
Charging with a Unit
Once you have chosen an eligible unit to declare a charge with, you must select one or more enemy units within 12" of it as the targets of its charge. The target(s) of this charge do not need to be visible to the charging unit. You then make a charge roll for your unit by rolling 2D6. This is the maximum number of inches each model in the charging unit can now be moved if they can make the charge move. To make a charge move, the unit’s charge roll must be sufficient that it is able to end that move in unit coherency and within Engagement Range of every unit that was a target of its charge, without moving within Engagement Range of any enemy units that were not a target of its charge. If this is possible, then the charge is successful and the models in the unit make a charge move so as to fulfil the above conditions. If this is impossible, the charge fails and no models in the charging unit move this phase.

  • Declare targets of the charge (must be within 12").
  • Charge roll = 2D6".
  • If insufficient to move charging unit into Engagement Range of all targets, charge fails.
  • If charge successful, models make their charge move.
  • Cannot make a charge move within Engagement Range of any unit that was not the target of the charge.
Manifesting Psychic Powers
The same PSYKER unit cannot attempt to manifest Smite more than once during the same battle round. When you select a PSYKER unit to manifest psychic powers, you select one psychic power that unit knows and attempt to manifest it. With the exception of Smite, you cannot attempt to manifest the same psychic power more than once in the same battle round, even with different PSYKER units.

To manifest the psychic power, you must first pass a Psychic test. The opposing player can then select one of their PSYKER units that is within 24" of the PSYKER unit attempting to manifest the power and attempt to deny that power before its effects are resolved by passing a Deny the Witch test.

So long as the Psychic test was successful and the psychic power was not denied by a successful Deny the Witch test, the psychic power is successfully manifested and its effects, which will be described in the power itself, are then resolved. If the PSYKER unit can attempt to manifest more than one psychic power in its Psychic phase, you can then attempt to manifest those, one at a time, as described above. The number of psychic powers each PSYKER unit can attempt to manifest in its Psychic phase is listed on its datasheet.

  • Select psychic power.
  • You cannot select the same psychic power more than once per battle round, unless that power is Smite.
  • Attempt to manifest the psychic power by taking a Psychic test.
  • The opponent can attempt to deny the psychic power by taking a Deny the Witch test.
  • If successfully manifested, resolve the psychic power’s effects.
  • Select another psychic power.
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.

Engagement Range represents the zone of threat that models present to their enemies. While a model is within 1" horizontally and 5" vertically of an enemy model, those models are within Engagement Range of each other. While two enemy models are within Engagement Range of each other, those models’ units are also within Engagement Range of each other. Models cannot be set up within Engagement Range of enemy models.

  • Engagement Range: 1" horizontally + 5" vertically.
  • Models cannot be set up within Engagement Range of enemy models.

  • Engagement Range: 1" horizontally + 5" vertically.
  • Models cannot be set up within Engagement Range of enemy models.
Pile In
When a unit piles in, you can move each model in that unit up to 3" – this is a pile-in move. Each model in the unit must finish its pile-in move closer to the closest enemy model. A model that is already touching an enemy model cannot move, but still counts as having piled in. Remember that a unit must finish any type of move in unit coherency.

  • Pile in: Move up to 3".
  • Must end closer to the closest enemy model.
Consolidate
When a unit consolidates, you can move each model in the unit up to 3" – this is a Consolidation move. Each model must finish its Consolidation move closer to the closest enemy model. A model that is already touching an enemy model cannot move, but still counts as having consolidated. Remember that a unit must finish any type of move in unit coherency.

  • Consolidate: Move up to 3".
  • Must end closer to the closest enemy model.
Engagement Range

While a model is within 1" horizontally and 5" vertically of an enemy model, those models are within Engagement Range of each other. While two enemy models are within Engagement Range of each other, those models’ units are also within Engagement Range of each other. Models cannot be set up within Engagement Range of enemy models.

  • Engagement Range: 1" horizontally + 5" vertically.
  • Models cannot be set up within Engagement Range of enemy models.
Characters
Some models have the CHARACTER keyword. These models can make Heroic Interventions in Charge Phase and are not easy targets in the Shooting Phase (see Look out, Sir, rule). If your Warlord has the CHARACTER keyword he may be able to have a Warlord Trait (see Warlord Trait section on model’s faction page).

Note that CHARACTERS cannot use their Aura Abilities while performing actions.

Outflank

When necessary, Space Marine units can operate behind enemy lines indefinitely, awaiting the perfect opportunity to appear on the enemy’s flank and wreak havoc.

During deployment, if every model in this unit has this ability, then you can set up this unit behind enemy lines instead of setting it up on the battlefield. If you do, then in the Reinforcements step of one of your Movement phases you can set up this unit wholly within 6" of any battlefield edge and more than 9" away from any enemy models.
Engagement Range
Engagement Range represents the zone of threat that models present to their enemies. While a model is within 1" horizontally and 5" vertically of an enemy model, those models are within Engagement Range of each other. While two enemy models are within Engagement Range of each other, those models’ units are also within Engagement Range of each other. Models cannot be set up within Engagement Range of enemy models.

  • Engagement Range: 1" horizontally + 5" vertically.

Once you have chosen an eligible unit to declare a charge with, you must select one or more enemy units within 12" of it as the targets of its charge. The target(s) of this charge do not need to be visible to the charging unit. You then make a charge roll for your unit by rolling 2D6. This is the maximum number of inches each model in the charging unit can now be moved if they can make the charge move. To make a charge move, the unit’s charge roll must be sufficient that it is able to end that move in unit coherency and within Engagement Range of every unit that was a target of its charge, without moving within Engagement Range of any enemy units that were not a target of its charge. If this is possible, then the charge is successful and the models in the unit make a charge move so as to fulfil the above conditions. If this is impossible, the charge fails and no models in the charging unit move this phase.

  • Declare targets of the charge (must be within 12").
  • Charge roll = 2D6".
  • If insufficient to move charging unit into Engagement Range of all targets, charge fails.
  • If charge successful, models make their charge move.
  • Cannot make a charge move within Engagement Range of any unit that was not the target of the charge.
Performing a Heroic Intervention
When a unit performs a Heroic Intervention, you can move each model in that unit up to 3" – this is a Heroic Intervention move. Each model in the unit must finish its Heroic Intervention move closer to the closest enemy model. Remember that a unit must finish any type of move in unit coherency.

  • Heroic Intervention: Move up to 3".
  • Must end closer to the closest enemy model.
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.
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.
