A unit of Freeguild Handgunners has any number of models, each armed with a Freeguild Handgun and Dagger.

MARKSMAN: 1 model in this unit can be a Marksman. A Marksman may replace their Freeguild Handgun with one of the following weapon options: Long Rifle; or Repeater Handgun. In addition, add 2 to hit rolls for attacks made with that model’s Freeguild Handgun.

STANDARD BEARER: 1 in every 10 models in this unit can be a Standard Bearer. Add 1 to the Bravery characteristic of units that include any Standard Bearers.

PIPER: 1 in every 10 models in this unit can be a Piper. Add 1 to run and charge rolls for units that include any Pipers.


Stand and Shoot: As the enemy charge, these warriors make one last shot, praying it will be enough to blunt their advance.
If an enemy unit finishes a charge move within 3" of this unit, this unit can receive the Unleash Hell command without the command being issued and without a command point being spent.

Steady Aim: Taking a deep breath and steadying their hands, each gunner draws a bead upon a single target.
Add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made by this unit if it has 10 or more models, there are no enemy models within 3" of this unit, and this unit has not made a move in the same turn.

Crack Shot: Tales are told of battles won with a single, well-paced shot from a long rifle.
Enemy HEROES do not benefit from the Look Out, Sir! rule for attacks made with a Long Rifle.

Hit Roll
Roll a dice. If the roll equals or beats the attacking weapon’s To Hit characteristic, the attack scores a hit and you must make a wound roll. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified hit roll of 1 always fails and an unmodified hit roll of 6 always hits. A hit roll cannot be modified by more than +1 or -1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).

Sometimes an ability will allow a single hit roll to score two or more hits. If this is the case, make all of the wound and save rolls for those hits at the same time.

8.3 Run
When you pick a unit to run, you must make a run roll for the unit by rolling a dice. Add the run roll to the Move characteristic of all models in the unit until the end of that phase. You can then move each model in that unit a distance in inches equal to or less than their modified Move characteristic. No part of a run can be within 3" of an enemy unit. You cannot shoot or attempt a charge later in the turn with a unit that has run.
11.1 Charge Moves
When you attempt a charge with a unit, make a charge roll for the unit by rolling 2D6. You can then make a charge move with each model in that unit by moving the model a distance in inches that is equal to or less than the charge roll. The first model you move in a unit attempting a charge must finish the move within 1/2" of an enemy unit. If this is impossible, no models in the unit can make a charge move.

You do not have to pick a target for a charge attempt before making the charge roll.

The FREEGUILD keyword is used in the following Cities of Sigmar warscrolls:

Leader, Behemoth
Unleash Hell
These warriors have prepared their missile weapons so they can unleash a devastating volley at the last possible moment.
You can use this command ability after an enemy unit finishes a charge move. The unit that receives the command must be within 6" of that enemy unit and more than 3" from all other enemy units. Models in the unit that receives the command that are within 6" of the target unit can shoot in that phase, but when they do so, you must subtract 1 from hit rolls for their attacks and they can only target the unit that made the charge move.
10.1.2 Look Out, Sir!
You must subtract 1 from the hit roll (see 13.3) for an attack made with a missile weapon if the target is an enemy HERO within 3" of an enemy unit that has 3 or more models. The Look Out, Sir! rule does not apply if the enemy HERO has a Wounds characteristic of 10 or more.
