Datasheet-related Stratagems

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.
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).
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.
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.
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.

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).
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.

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.

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.

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.
GENE-WROUGHT MIGHT1CP
Adeptus Astartes – Battle Tactic Stratagem

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

DEED WORTHY OF A SAGA2CP
Space Wolves – Epic Deed Stratagem

Legendary deeds in the midst of battle are an intoxicating mead. Those of the hero’s retinue are inspired to greater feats of daring and valour, proving themselves worthy of their champion.

Use this Stratagem in any phase, when a SPACE WOLVES CHARACTER model (excluding VEHICLE models) from your army that does not have a Warlord Trait meets the requirements for a Deed. At the end of the phase, until the end of the battle, that model gains the Saga ability associated with that Deed.
ONLY IN DEATH DOES DUTY END2CP
Adeptus Astartes – Epic Deed Stratagem

Imminent death does not prevent a Space Marine from enacting his final justice upon the enemies of the Imperium.

Use this Stratagem after nominating a model drawn from a Space Wolves successor Chapter to be your WARLORD. You can give one Relic of the Fang to a CHARACTER model from your army that is drawn from a Space Wolves successor Chapter instead of giving them a Special-issue Wargear Relic or a Chapter Relic from Codex: Space Marines.

SENTINEL OF TERRA1CP

At the opportune moment, Space Marine infiltration units slip away from battle, only to relocate and strike the foe again.

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.
TELEPORTARIUM1CP
Deathwatch – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

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

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.

  • 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.
STRANGLEHOLD2CP
Raven Guard – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

By the time the enemy engages the Raven Guard, their rear lines are already in the talon-grip of the Chapter’s covert vanguard, choking them off from vital battlefield support.

Use this Stratagem at the start of the first battle round, before the first turn begins, if your army includes any RAVEN GUARD SCOUT or RAVEN GUARD PHOBOS units. Until the end of that battle round, you can roll one D6 each time your opponent spends Command Points to use a Stratagem; on a 5+ your opponent must spend 1 additional Command Point, or else that Stratagem has no effect and cannot be used again this phase (the Command Points spent so far are lost). You can only use this Stratagem once per battle.
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.

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.
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.

SPECIAL-ISSUE LOADOUT2CP
Deathwatch – Wargear Stratagem

Individual shells are loaded when optimised volleys are required.

Ultramarines Stratagem

A gathering of courageous heroes, the Victrix Guard are more than capable of cutting their way through entire armies of foes.

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.

This datasheet has HQ Battlefield Role. Full list of Space Marines units sharing same Battlefield Role follows:

Bolt pistol used in following datasheets:

HQ
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

Krak grenades used in following datasheets:

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.

Camo Cloak used in following datasheets:

Heavy Support
Elites
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).
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.
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.
Concealed Positions

Vanguard forces often infiltrate the battlefield ahead of the main advance, taking up forward positions to ambush the foe.

During deployment, when you set up this unit, if every model in this unit has this ability then it can be set up anywhere on the battlefield that is more than 9" away from the enemy deployment zone and any enemy models.
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.
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.

The keyword is used in following Space Marines datasheets:

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.
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.

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.

The SERVITOR keyword is used in following Space Marines datasheets:

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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
  • 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.
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.

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.
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.

Aura Abilities
Some abilities affect models or units in a given range – these are aura abilities. A model with an aura ability is always within range of its effect. The effects of multiple, identically named aura abilities are not cumulative (i.e. if a unit is within range of two models with the same aura ability, that aura ability only applies to the unit once).
