Forces of the Omnissiah – Questoris Knight Atrapos

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

A Cerastus pattern of ancient provenance and staggering potency, it is a rare honour for a Household to count a Knight Atrapos among its ranks. Be it a relic recovered from the vaults of a vanquished foe or a gift of exceptional favour by a Forge World whose masters owed a blood-debt, the Atrapos is treated with singular reverence by the scions of the Household and its power is only employed in the direst of circumstances. The knowledge of its inner workings remains beyond even the wisest Sacristans, and many functions, such as the self-repair protocols seen on Knights that belong to the Mechanicum, are absent from suits of Atrapos armour fielded by Questoris Households. The Knight Atrapos takes to the field upon the direct command of the Grand Master, where its array of exotic weapons bring fearsome ruin upon enemy war machines. During the cataclysmic wars of the Horus Heresy, it is not uncommon for Questoris Atrapos suits to be employed against enemy Knights or as executioners for wayward scions who have strayed from the allegiance of their House, the cold hunger for destruction within the machine spirit of the Knight Atrapos sated only with the ruination of such great adversaries.

Shooting with Knights and Titans
A Knight or Titan that moved can still fire all of its weapons in the subsequent Shooting phase, and always counts as having remained Stationary for the purposes of which weapons can fire, regardless of any distance actually moved. In addition, a Knight or Titan may fire each of its weapons at different targets if the controlling player chooses.

To reflect the unique capabilities of these towering machines, Knights and Titans use two additional types of weapon mount:

Arm Mounted – Arm Mounted weapons may fire at targets in any Firing Arc, except the Hull (Rear) arc. All Arm Mounted weapons count as Defensive weapons (but note the additional restrictions on Knight and Titan Reactions).

Carapace Mounted - Carapace Mounted weapons may fire at targets in any Firing Arc without restriction. However, they may not target any unit within 12" of the firing model.

Barrage weapons lob shells high into the air, landing them in the midst of the foe.

All Barrage weapons use Blast markers and consequently use the rules for Blast weapons, as indicated by their profile, with the following exceptions:

Barrage weapons can fire indirectly. This means they can fire at a target that they do not have line of sight to, as long as the target is beyond their Minimum Range (if applicable). When firing indirectly, the Ballistic Skill of the firer is not subtracted from the scatter distance; unless a Hit is rolled on the Scatter dice, the Blast marker always scatters a full 2D6". If a Barrage weapon has line of sight to its target it can fire directly, even if the target is within its Minimum Range.

Note that any Hits inflicted upon Vehicles by an Attack using the Barrage special rule are always resolved against the Vehicle’s Side Armour Value.
Large Blast
Large Blast weapons use the 5" Blast marker, but otherwise obey all the rules for Blast weapons.

Coming under fire without knowing where the shots are coming from, or having ordnance rain down from the skies, can shake the resolve of even the bravest warriors, making them dive flat and cling to whatever cover presents itself.

If a non-Vehicle unit suffers one or more unsaved Wounds from a weapon with the Pinning special rule, it must take a Leadership test once the firing unit has finished its Shooting Attacks for that Phase. This is called a Pinning test. If the unit fails the Test, it is Pinned. As long as the Test is passed, a unit can be called upon to take multiple Pinning tests in a single turn, but only once for each unit shooting at them.

A unit that is affected by any of the following conditions does not take Pinning tests, and if called upon to do so is considered to automatically pass them:
  • The unit is locked in combat.
  • The unit is already Pinned (the unit remains Pinned, but takes no further Tests).
  • The unit is composed entirely of Vehicle models.
  • The unit is Embarked on a Transport Vehicle.
  • The target unit is affected by the Fearless special rule.
A unit that has become Pinned cannot Move, Run or Charge. It can only fire Snap Shots if it attacks during the Shooting phase and cannot make Reactions in any Phase. At the end of its following turn, the unit returns to normal and the unit is free to act as normal from then on. Whilst it is Pinned, a unit is affected normally by enemy actions (for example, it takes Morale checks as normal). If the unit is forced to move, for example if it has to Fall Back, it returns to normal immediately. If assaulted, the unit will fight as usual, but because they are not set to receive the Charge, enemy units do not receive the Initiative penalty for assaulting a unit in Difficult Terrain, even if the unit is in Difficult Terrain. If a unit becomes Pinned during a Charge, then that Charge automatically fails. Units that are locked in combat cannot be Pinned and do not take Pinning tests.
Ordnance Weapons

Ordnance weapons are cannon so vast, they are typically mounted on tanks and artillery.

When making Shooting Attacks, a model equipped with an Ordnance weapon fires the number of times indicated in its profile after its Type. A non-Vehicle model carrying an Ordnance weapon cannot attack with it in the Shooting phase if they moved in the preceding Movement phase. Ordnance weapons cannot make Snap Shots. Furthermore, if a non-Vehicle model attacks with an Ordnance weapon, that model may not make any further Shooting Attacks with any other weapon in the Phase nor will it be able to Charge in the ensuing Assault phase. Vehicle models that fire Ordnance weapons may also suffer some restrictions based upon the distance they have moved that turn.

Ordnance weapons hit with such force that when you roll to penetrate a Vehicle’s armour with an Ordnance weapon, roll two dice instead of one and pick the highest result.

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

Whether due to its inherent weight, shape or because it was never meant for use in combat, this weapon proves difficult to wield even for the most accomplished of warriors.

A model using a close combat weapon with this special rule can only ever make a single attack at WS 1 in an Assault phase, regardless of their profile or any bonus or other special rule.
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.
Instant Death

Some blows can slay an enemy outright, no matter how hardy they may be.

If a model suffers an unsaved Wound from an attack with this special rule, it is reduced to 0 Wounds and is removed as a casualty.

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.

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.

Resolving Damage
A Hit on a Vehicle can have a variety of results. Its armour could be completely pierced, yet result only in shocking the crew, or it could detonate the ammunition cases or fuel tanks.

Glancing Hits – If a Glancing Hit was scored, the Vehicle loses 1 Hull Point.

Penetrating Hits – If a Penetrating Hit was scored, the Vehicle not only loses 1 Hull Point, but also suffers additional damage.

After deducting any Hull Points, roll a D6 for each Penetrating Hit and look up the result using the Vehicle Damage table, applying any appropriate modifiers. All modifiers on the Vehicle Damage table are cumulative. If you inflict a Penetrating Hit, you must roll on the Vehicle Damage table even if the Vehicle loses sufficient Hull Points to be Wrecked, as there is still a chance it might suffer an Explodes result on the Vehicle Damage table.
Invulnerable Saves
Some warriors are protected by more than physical armour. They may be shielded by force fields or have a constitution that can shrug off hits that would destroy a tank. Models with Wargear or abilities like these are allowed an Invulnerable Saving Throw.

Invulnerable Saves are different to Armour Saves in that they may always be taken whenever the model suffers a Wound, or, in the case of Vehicles, suffers a Penetrating Hit or Glancing Hit – the Armour Piercing value of attacking weapons has no effect on an Invulnerable Save. Even if a Wound, Penetrating Hit or Glancing Hit ignores all Armour Saves, an Invulnerable Saving Throw can still be taken.
Damage Mitigation Rolls (Shooting)
Some models may also have a special rule that grants a Damage Mitigation roll, such as Feel No Pain or Shrouded. These rolls may be made even if a model has already failed a save of any kind, or was unable to make a save due to the AP value of an attack or the effect of another special rule. If a save is failed, a model with a Damage Mitigation roll may attempt to use that roll to negate an unsaved Wound. However, no model may attempt more than a single Damage Mitigation roll against any given unsaved Wound inflicted on it. In cases where a model has more than one Damage Mitigation roll available, the controlling player selects one to use whenever called upon to make a Damage Mitigation roll.

Haywire weapons send out powerful electromagnetic pulses.

For each Hit inflicted on a unit that contains at least one model with the Vehicle, Dreadnought or Automata Unit Type, roll a D6 to determine the effect rather than rolling To Wound or for armour penetration normally. AP has no effect on this roll:

1No Effect.
2-5A model with the Vehicle Unit Type that is part of the target unit suffers 1 Glancing Hit. Any other model suffers 1 Wound. Only Invulnerable Saves or Damage Mitigation rolls may be taken against Glancing Hits or Wounds inflicted by this result.
6A model with the Vehicle Unit Type that is part of the target unit suffers 1 Penetrating Hit. Any other model suffers 1 Wound. No Saves or Damage Mitigation rolls may be taken against Penetrating Hits or Wounds inflicted by this result.
Concussive (X)

Some weapons are designed to leave any foe that manages to survive their strike disoriented and easy to slay.

A unit that suffers one or more Wounds, regardless of whether those Wounds are Saved or otherwise discounted, from a weapon with this special rule must take a Leadership test at the end of the Shooting phase (if the attacks were inflicted as part of a Shooting Attack), or the current combat (if the attacks were inflicted as part of a Melee attack). If the test is failed then that unit’s WS is reduced by the value in brackets listed as part of the special rule until the end of the following Assault phase (if no value is listed then reduce the target unit’s WS by -1).

No matter how many times a unit has taken saved or unsaved Wounds from an attack with the Concussive special rule, it may only be forced to take one Leadership test because of it. If a single unit has been the target of several Concussive attacks with different values and fails the Leadership test, then it suffers the effects of the highest single modifier among those attacks – the effects do not stack or otherwise become cumulative.

Whether tearing a hole in the veil between realspace and the Warp or collapsing gravity into a superdense singularity, this weapon creates a lasting calamity which threatens the very stability of reality around it.

Once an attack with this special rule has been fully resolved, any Blast markers placed as part of that attack are not removed from play and instead are left in place for the remainder of the battle. Such a Blast marker is then referred to as the Vortex marker. The area under a Vortex marker is treated as Area Terrain for the remainder of the battle, and applies the following effects to all models that enter its boundaries:

No line of sight may be drawn through, into, or out of the area covered by the Vortex marker (as such, models within such an area of terrain cannot draw line of sight to any other model, nor can other models draw a line of sight to them).

Any models that enter the boundary of this area of terrain, or begin the Movement phase of the model’s Controlling player within its boundaries, immediately suffer one Str 10, AP 1 Hit and the Instant Death and Armourbane (Melee) special rules. If the model has the Vehicle Unit Type and suffers a Penetrating Hit due to this effect then it adds a modifier of +3 to that roll on the Vehicle Damage table instead of the +2 modifier it would normally add due to being AP1.

This area of terrain does not confer a Cover Save and no model within its boundary may use a Cover Save granted by any other rule or effect.
Graviton Singularity

Some graviton weapons can bend the most terrible power in the galaxy to its breaking point, collapsing gravity in upon itself and creating super-dense singularities that consume light, matter, and time itself.

Before firing a weapon with this special rule, roll a D6. On a 1, the firing unit suffers a single Wound against which no Saves or Damage Mitigation rolls may be made. A model with the Vehicle Unit Type instead suffers 1 Hull Point against which no Saves or Damage Mitigation rolls may be made. On a 2-5, the weapon fires normally. On a result of a 6, the attack is carried out with the Vortex special rule.

Ion Shield

These sophisticated energy screens rely on ion fields to deflect the path of solid projectiles. The main limitation of these devices is their immense energy requirement, sustainable by only the largest war engines.

A model with an ion shield gains a 4+ Invulnerable Save against Shooting Attacks which target its Front Armour Value, and a 5+ Invulnerable Save against Shooting Attacks which target its Side Armour Value.
Catastrophic Destruction

The lost technologies that drive the Knight Atrapos rely on esoteric energies barriered behind overlapping containment fields that can cause hideous damage to anything nearby when breached.

When destroyed, a model with this special rule resolves Catastrophic Damage at AP 1.
Flank Speed

The Cerastus Knight armour is renowned for its agility and speed, capable of pushing beyond the limitations of its heavier and more cumbersome brethren.

A model with this special rule may increase its Movement Distance by 4" in any Movement phase, but if it does so it may not make any Shooting Attacks in the subsequent Shooting phase. Note this model may still Charge in the Assault phase. In addition, when declaring a Charge after making a Shooting Attack, a model with this special rule may Charge a unit that it did not target in that turn’s Shooting phase, provided that the target of the Charge meets all other criteria of a valid Charge target.
Macro-extinction Targeting Protocols

The Knight Atrapos is possessed with a predatory machine spirit that drives it to single-mindedly stalk and eradicate the largest and most dangerous prey on the battlefield.

When making Shooting Attacks against targets with the Super-heavy Vehicle, Knight or Titan Unit Types or the Monstrous Sub-type, a model with this special rule counts all of its ranged weapons as twin-linked.
Night Vision

Some warriors can see almost as clearly in the darkness as they can in daylight.

A unit that contains at least one model with this special rule ignores the effects of Night Fighting and no model may make Shrouded rolls to negate Wounds inflicted by their attacks.
