Until the end of the Turning Point, while an enemy operative is Visible to and within of a friendly NURGLE operative, that enemy operative is treated as being injured (only subtract from its Movement characteristic as a result of being injured if it is activated within of a friendly NURGLE operative).

Tactical Ploys

If your faction is CHAOS DAEMON, you can use the following Tactical Ploys during a game.

WARP SURGE1CP

Blue Horror

Should a Pink Horror be cut down, it may split, with the two halves reforming as smaller daemons. These Blue Horrors are morose and spiteful creatures, aggressively calling on their warp-spawned powers to destroy those who dared lay their original form low.

Fire Teams
Many of the kill teams presented in Kill Team: Compendium require you to select your kill team by selecting one or two fire teams. A fire team is a collection of operatives and their selection requirements for the associated kill team. If your kill team consists of two fire teams, you can select the same fire team more than once. Many fire teams have the option to select a LEADER operative. When selecting your kill team, you can only include one LEADER operative, and in matched play, you must include one LEADER operative. Finally, each fire team has one or more archetypes. In such circumstances, your kill team’s overall archetype(s) is the archetype(s) of its fire teams.

Ceaseless
Each time a friendly operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack with this weapon, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, you can re-roll any or all of your attack dice results of 1.
Visible
For an intended target to be Visible, the following must be true:
  • You can draw an imaginary, unobstructed straight line (known as a Visibility line) 1 mm wide from the head of the active operative’s miniature to any part of the miniature of the intended target (not its base).
In the rare instance that bases prevent an intended target from being Visible to the active operative, such as when the active operative is directly below or above the intended target, treat those bases as being invisible.

Some rare rules will require you to select a point that is Visible (e.g. a point on the killzone). In such circumstances, you must be able to draw an imaginary, unobstructed straight line 1mm wide from the head of the active operative’s miniature to the point you would select.

The NURGLE keyword is used in the following Chaos Daemon datacards:

Engagement Range
Engagement Range is the zone of threat that operatives present to their enemies. Many rules in the game use Engagement Range, such as when moving and fighting. Engagement Range is mutual, therefore operatives are within each other’s Engagement Range if one of them is Visible to and within of the other.

The BRIMSTONE HORRORS keyword is used in the following Chaos Daemon datacards:

APx
Armour Penetration. Each time a friendly operative makes a shooting attack with this weapon, subtract x from the Defence of the target for that shooting attack, x is the number after the weapon’s AP, e.g. AP1. If two different APx special rules would be in effect for a shooting attack, they are not cumulative - the attacker selects which one to use.
Rng x
Range. Each time a friendly operative makes a shooting attack with this weapon, only operatives within x are a valid target, x is the distance after the weapon’s Rng, e.g. Rng . All other rules for selecting a valid target still apply.
Torrent x
Each time a friendly operative performs a Shoot action or Overwatch action and selects this weapon, after making the shooting attack against the target, it can make a shooting attack with this weapon against each other valid target within x of the original target and each other, x is the distance after the weapon’s Torrent, e.g. Torrent .

  1. An operative performs a Shoot action, selects a ranged weapon with the Torrent special rule, and selects operative A as the target.
  2. After making the shooting attack against operative A, it makes a shooting attack against operative B and C, determining if they are a valid target as normal.
  3. It cannot make a shooting attack against operative D, as while that operative is within of operative A and C, it is not within of operative B.
Stun
Each time a friendly operative makes a shooting attack with this weapon, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that shooting attack, if you retain any critical hits, subtract 1 from the target’s APL. Each time a friendly operative fights in combat with this weapon, in the Resolve Successful Hits step of that combat:
  • The first time you strike with a critical hit, select one of your opponent’s normal hits from that combat to be discarded
  • The second time you strike with a critical hit, subtract 1 from the target’s APL.
Rending
Each time a friendly operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack with this weapon, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, if you retain any critical hits you can retain one normal hit as a critical hit.
Balanced
Each time a friendly operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack with this weapon, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, you can re-roll one of your attack dice.
Lethal x
Each time a friendly operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack with this weapon, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, your attack dice results of equal to or greater than x that are successful hits are critical hits, x is the number after the weapon’s Lethal, e.g. Lethal 5+.
Invulnerable Save x+
Each time a shooting attack is made against an operative, the defender can use its invulnerable save instead of its normal Save characteristic. An invulnerable save is used like a normal Save characteristic, except that it cannot be modified in any way, and is not affected by any APx special rules (meaning the defender would use their normal Defence characteristic). x of the invulnerable save is the dice roll required for the defence dice to be successful, e.g. 4+.

Modifying Characteristics
Some rules will modify the characteristics of an operative and/or their weapons. All modifiers to a characteristic are cumulative.

If a characteristic refers to the result required when rolling a D6 (i.e. Save, Ballistic Skill and Weapon Skill), the modifier will specify to improve or worsen the characteristic. As a lower result is a better characteristic, the modifier should be applied accordingly. For example, if a Ballistic Skill of 4+ is worsened by 1, it would be modified to a 5+.

If an operative’s APL is modified, it lasts until the end of its current or next activation (whichever comes first). Regardless of how many APL modifiers an operative is affected by, the total modification can never be more than -1 or +1 from its normal APL. For example, if an operative has an APL of 2, and two rules say to add 1 to the operative’s APL, until the end of its next activation it would have an APL of 3.

  • Before that PINK HORROR operative is removed from the killzone, set up two BLUE HORROR operatives as close as possible to that operative and not within Engagement Range of enemy operatives.
  • Before that BLUE HORROR operative is removed from the killzone, set up one BRIMSTONE HORRORS operative as close as possible to that operative and not within Engagement Range of enemy operatives.
In either case, set up those operatives with the same order as the previous operative (including if it was ready or activated). In narrative play, any operatives set up as a result of this Tactical Ploy are no longer part of your kill team after the game.

Actions
Actions are categorised as follows:
  • Universal actions can be performed by all operatives. They are detailed below.
  • Unique actions are actions detailed on an operative’s datacard that only they can perform, such as the Dakka Dash action found on the example datacard.
  • Mission actions are specific to the mission you are playing, and will be detailed by that mission’s briefing. Missions can be found here (Open Play mission) and here (Spec Ops Narrative missions).
  • Free actions can only be performed when another rule specifies. Each time an operative would perform a free action, the following rules apply.
    • The operative can perform the action, so long as the requirements of the action are met.
    • The player does not subtract any additional AP to perform the action.
    • The operative would still count as performing the action for all rules purposes. For example, if it performed it during its activation, it would not be able to perform the action again during that activation.

For example, when a KOMMANDO DAKKA BOY performs a Dakka Dash action (see unique actions, above), it can perform a free Dash and free Shoot action without subtracting any additional AP (other than the AP spent on the Dakka Dash action). However, it is subject to those actions’ requirements, therefore it cannot perform the free Dash action if it is within Engagement Range of enemy operatives, and cannot perform the free Shoot action if it is within Engagement Range of enemy operatives or has a Conceal order. In addition, for each of the free actions it performs, it cannot perform them again during its activation.
