Forces of the Omnissiah – Armiger Warglaive Talon

This datasheet does not meet the selection criteria (see Filter combo-box or Settings tab).

The Armiger Knight is a lighter, more agile cousin to the Questoris Knight that often fought alongside its larger confederates during the Great Crusade, picking off threats which came from enemies beneath the notice of the larger Knights, such as swarming throngs of infantrymen attempting to breach the protective barriers of their ion shields to clamp explosives directly upon their armoured frames. Armiger Warglaives are armed with menacing thermal lances and fearsome Reaper chainblades, well suited to the belligerent and aggressive nature of their pilots.

Melee Type
Weapons with the Melee type can only be used in close combat.

Some weapons and warriors strike in a flurry of blows, tearing flesh asunder in a series of brutal strikes.

If a model has the Shred special rule, or is attacking with a Melee weapon that has the Shred rule, it re-rolls failed To Wound rolls in close combat.

Similarly, if a model makes a Shooting Attack with a weapon that has the Shred rule, it re-rolls its failed To Wound rolls.
Rending (X)

Some weapons can inflict critical strikes against which no armour can protect.

If a model has the Rending special rule, or is attacking with a Melee weapon that has the Rending special rule, there is a chance that their close combat attacks will strike a critical blow. For each To Wound roll equal to or higher than the value listed, the target automatically suffers a Wound, regardless of its Toughness. The controlling player may choose to resolve these Wounds at AP 2 instead of the weapon’s normal AP value.

Similarly, if a model makes a Shooting Attack with a weapon that has the Rending special rule, a To Wound roll of equal to or greater than the listed value wounds automatically, regardless of Toughness, and is resolved at AP 2.

In either case, against Vehicles each Armour Penetration roll of equal to or greater than the listed value allows a further D3 to be rolled, with the result added to the total Strength of the attack. These Hits are not resolved at AP 2, but are instead resolved using the weapon’s AP value.

For example, a model with the Rending (5+) special rule that rolls To Wound against a non-Vehicle model will wound automatically on the roll of a 5+, and the attacking player has the choice of using an AP value of 2 instead of the AP value of their weapon.
Armourbane (X)

This weapon has been crafted with one aim in mind – to pierce the hides of armoured vehicles.

If a model or weapon has this special rule, it rolls an additional D6 for armour penetration when targeting a Vehicle model, or, when targeting a model with the Automata or Dreadnought Unit Type, re-rolls all failed rolls To Wound instead. These effects apply to both Shooting Attacks and close combat attacks.

Some instances of the Armourbane special rule may include a qualifier after the rule in brackets, for example Armourbane (Melta) or Armourbane (Melee). These variant rules are described below:

Armourbane (Melta): A model or weapon with this Armourbane special rule only gains the benefits of the Armourbane special rule when at half range or less. If the attack is more than half its Maximum Range away, it gains no benefit from the Armourbane special rule. If a weapon with this version of Armourbane also has the Blast special rule, measure the distance to the centre of the Blast marker after it has scattered. If this is half the weapon’s range or less, then all Hits are counted as having the Armourbane special rule, otherwise the Hits are resolved as if they did not have the Armourbane special rule.

Armourbane (Melee): A weapon or model with this version of the Armourbane special rule only gains the benefits of the Armourbane special rule when attacking in close combat.

Armourbane (Ranged): A weapon or model with this version of the Armourbane special rule only gains the benefits of the Armourbane special rule when making Shooting Attacks.
Gets Hot

Some weapons are fuelled by unstable power sources and risk overheating with each shot – often to the detriment of their wielder.

When firing a weapon that Gets Hot, roll To Hit as normal. For each unmodified To Hit roll of 1, the firing model immediately suffers a single Wound with an AP value equal to that of the weapon that was used to attack (Armour Saves, Invulnerable Saves and Feel No Pain rolls can be taken, but not Cover Saves or Shrouded rolls) – this Wound cannot be allocated to any other model in the unit. A Vehicle instead rolls a D6 for each roll of a 1 To Hit. If this roll results in a 1 or 2, the Vehicle suffers a Glancing Hit.
Assault Weapons

Assault weapons either fire so rapidly or indiscriminately that they can be fired while a warrior is moving.

A model attacking with an Assault weapon makes the number of Attacks indicated on its profile regardless of whether the bearer has moved or not. A model carrying an Assault weapon can make a Shooting Attack with it in the Shooting phase and still Charge in the Assault phase.

These weapons are grafted to the same targeting system for greater accuracy.

When attacking with a weapon that has this special rule, the controlling player may re-roll all failed To Hit rolls.
Heavy Weapons

These are heavy, man-portable weapons that typically require reloading between each shot or bracing to counter their recoil.

When making a Shooting Attack, a model with a Heavy weapon attacks the number of times indicated. If a model equipped with a Heavy weapon moved in the preceding Movement phase, they can only make Snap Shots with that Heavy weapon during the Shooting phase. Note that weapons with the Blast special rule cannot fire Snap Shots. Models that make Shooting Attacks with Heavy weapons in the Shooting phase cannot Charge in the ensuing Assault phase.

Ionic Deflector

A lesser example of ion shield technology, tied to a smaller directional generator that can protect only a narrow arc of the war engine upon which it is mounted. Fortunately, the Knights that most often mount such devices are more capable of positioning the device to best protect themselves, and using the lower energy drain of the deflector to better power their devastating arsenals of weapons.

A model with an ionic deflector gains a 5+ Invulnerable Save, and any model with an ionic deflector and a Wounds Characteristic gains the Eternal Warrior special rule. In addition, when a model with an ionic deflector loses its last Wound or Hull Point, but before it is removed as a casualty or replaced with a Wreck, all models both friendly and enemy within D6+3" suffer an automatic Hit at Str 8, AP -.
Armiger and Moirax Talons

The Scout Knights of the Taghmata and Questoris Households often roamed the battlefield independently as the vanguard of their orders. While each war machine strode the battlefield distant from their companions, they shared fierce bonds of fealty and brotherhood.

When deployed onto the battlefield (either at the start of the battle or when arriving from Reserves) all models in the unit must be placed within unit coherency, but afterwards operate independently and are not treated as a single unit.
Fleet (X)

Preternaturally agile, these warriors can cover ground more quickly than their plodding foes.

A unit composed entirely of models with this special rule gains a bonus to all Run moves, any distance moved as part of a Reaction and as a modifier to all rolls made to determine Charge Distances equal to the value in brackets listed after the special rule. For example, a unit composed entirely of models with the Fleet (2) special rule would add +2 to all Run moves it makes, +2 to all distances moved as part of a Reaction and add a +2 modifier to any Charge Moves made.

If a unit is composed entirely of models with this special rule, but the models have different versions of this special rule, then the unit must use the lowest Fleet value included in the unit (for example, a unit of ten models in which nine models have Fleet (2) and one model has Fleet (4) would use the Fleet (2) special rule).
Move Through Cover

Some warriors are skilled at moving over broken and tangled terrain.

A unit that contains only models with this special rule suffers no penalty for moving or charging through Difficult Terrain.
