Forces of the Omnissiah – Warhound Scout Titan

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

Warhounds are the smallest class of ‘true’ Titan, although small in this case is purely in relation to its colossal brethren the Battle Titans. Classified as ‘Scouts’ in reference to their common operational roles within the Divisio Militaris of the Titan Legions, they are commonly used to range ahead of larger Titan battle groups or detached in support of lesser ground forces, where the sheer scale and power of their weapons is enough to turn the tide of most battles in their allies’ favour. If matched against their larger counterparts, however, they cannot hope to directly contest them in terms of durability or raw firepower, so instead Warhounds must rely on their speed and manoeuvrability to survive, and use pack tactics to bring down the Titans of a main battle line.

Breaching (X)

Some weapons are capable of breaching armour with a terrifying ease, whether by specially designed munitions, careful targeting or sheer brute power.

When rolling To Wound for a model that has the Breaching (X) special rule, or is attacking with a weapon that has the Breaching (X) special rule, for each To Wound roll equal to or higher than the value listed in brackets, the controlling player must resolve these wounds at AP 2 instead of the weapon’s normal AP value. This rule has no effect on models that do not have Wounds, such as models with the Vehicle Unit Type.

For example, a model with the Breaching (5+) special rule that rolls To Wound and rolls a result of ‘5’ or higher, the Wound inflicted gains an AP of ‘2’ regardless of the AP value listed on the weapon’s profile. Note that a weapon that has both the Breaching (X) and the Gets Hot special rules always uses the base AP of the weapon when rolls of ‘1’ To Hit inflict Wounds on the attacking model.
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.

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.
Shell Shock (X)

Some weapons produce such a weight of fire that any target pummelled by their attack is left dazed and stunned.

Pinning tests taken due to an attack or weapon with this special rule are made with a penalty to Leadership Characteristic equal to the value listed as part of the special rule.

For example, a unit that is forced to take a Pinning test by an attack made using a weapon with the Shell Shock (2) special rule, suffers a penalty of -2 to their Leadership Characteristic when resolving that Test.

Disruption (X)

The coruscating bolts of lightning hurled from arc weapons overload and burn out the circuitry and neuro-matrices of simple and complex machines alike.

To Hit rolls of the value X indicated made by a weapon with this rule cause an automatic Glancing Hit against models with the Vehicle Unit Type instead of rolling for Armour Penetration, and an automatic Wound against models with the Dreadnought or Automata Unit Types, instead of rolling To Wound.
Ignores Cover

This weapon fires ammunition that cheats an enemy of their shelter.

Cover Saves and Damage Mitigation rolls granted by the Shrouded special rule cannot be taken against Wounds or Hull Point damage caused by weapons with the Ignores Cover special rule. This includes Cover Saves granted by Reactions and other special rules as well as Cover Saves conferred by terrain.
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.

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.
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.

Reactor Overload

This weapon requires dangerous amounts of energy to fire at full power. Doing so puts the vehicle at risk of pushing its reactor past the breaking point.

A weapon with this special rule may double the number of shots it makes, but if it does so the firing model suffers D3 Wounds or Hull Points of damage with no Saves or Damage Mitigation rolls of any kind allowed.
Torrent (X)

This weapon fires massive gouts of flame, gas or lethal fluids across the battlefield.

A weapon with this special rule is treated like any other Template weapon, but when firing it in the Shooting phase, place the template so that the narrow end is placed within a number of inches equal to the value in brackets listed as part of this special rule. The wide end must then be aligned so that it is no closer to the firing model than the narrow end.

For example, a weapon with the Torrent (18) special rule must place the narrow end of the template at a point within 18" and the wide end no closer to the firing model than the narrow end.
Massive Blast
Massive Blast weapons use the 7" Blast marker, but otherwise obey all the rules for Blast weapons.
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.

Mounted only on the largest and most fearsome of war machines, Destroyer class weapons are capable of annihilating smaller targets and tearing through even the thickest armour with ease.

A model making a Shooting Attack with a Destroyer weapon attacks the number of times indicated on the weapon’s profile whether or not the bearer has moved. A model carrying a Destroyer weapon can attack with it in the Shooting phase and still Charge in the Assault phase. In addition, when you roll for armour penetration with Hits caused by a Destroyer weapon, roll three dice instead of one and discard the single lowest dice rolled, or any one of the lowest dice in the case of tied results. Use the total of the remaining dice to determine the result.

In addition, when a Destroyer weapon inflicts a Glancing Hit or a Penetrating Hit, it inflicts D3 Hull Points of Damage instead of a single Hull Point. When a Destroyer weapon inflicts a Wound on a non-Vehicle model, it inflicts D3 Wounds instead of a single Wound.

Reactor Meltdown (X)

The colossal engines of the Ordo Reductor and the Titan Legions are driven by devastatingly powerful thermonuclear reactors. Should these engines be breached, the resulting explosion is apocalyptic for any caught in its blast.

When a model with this special rule is destroyed, the damage caused by its Catastrophic Damage is altered depending on the value of (X) in the version of this special rule as follows:

When destroyed, a model with this special rule resolves Hits caused by Catastrophic Damage as Destroyer attacks.

When destroyed, a model with this special rule resolves Hits caused by Catastrophic Damage as Destroyer attacks at AP2.

When destroyed, a model with this special rule resolves Hits caused by Catastrophic Damage as Destroyer attacks at AP2, and doubles the range of the Catastrophic Damage effect.

The devotees of the Omnissiah view the colossal war engines of the Legio Titanicus as avatars of their machine god. In the shadow of their towering might, the warriors and mystics of the Mechanicum fight with absolute confidence in their deity. Indeed, these blessed constructs remain inviolate to energies that would scour the machine-minds of lesser automata.

A model with this special rule ignores all Psychic Powers and Cybertheurgic Rites and Attacks made by Psychic and Cybertheurgic Weapons. In addition, a model with this special rule ignores the effects of the Haywire and Disruption (X) special rules. In all cases, weapons which benefit from these special rules must attempt to damage a model with this special rule normally using the attack’s Strength value. In addition, all friendly Mechanicum units with at least one model within 24" of a model with this special rule gain the Fearless special rule.
Void Shields (X)

Some vehicles are equipped with almost impenetrable shields of energy, relics from ancient times known as void shields.

A model with this special rule has a number of void shields, as listed on its profile. Shooting Attacks which Hit a model with this special rule instead target this model’s void shields while at least one remains active. Void shields have an Armour Value of 12. A successful Glancing Hit, Penetrating Hit or any successful Hit from a Destroyer weapon which targets a void shield causes it to collapse, reducing the number ‘X’ by -1. When the number of void shields is reduced to 0, this special rule has no further effect and subsequent Shooting Attacks target the model instead. Void shields have no effect on close combat attacks, and may not be affected by close combat attacks.
