<MARK OF CHAOS>

When adding a LEGIONARY operative to your roster or dataslate, you must choose one of the keywords below to replace its selectable <MARK OF CHAOS> keyword with.

  • KHORNE
  • NURGLE
  • SLAANESH
  • TZEENTCH
  • UNDIVIDED
If your roster contains any operatives with the KHORNE keyword, it cannot contain any operatives with the SLAANESH keyword (and vice versa).

If your roster contains any operatives with the NURGLE keyword, it cannot contain any operatives with the TZEENTCH keyword (and vice versa).

Abilities

Below, you will find common abilities of the LEGIONARY kill team.

Chaos Blessing

This operative gains one ability from those listed below. The ability it gains depends on its <MARK OF CHAOS> keyword.

Nurgle - Disgusting Vigour
Each time a shooting attack is made against this operative, in the Roll Defence Dice step of that shooting attack, you can retain one normal save as a critical save.

Slaanesh - Unnatural Agility
Add to this operative’s Movement characteristic.

Tzeentch - Empyreal Guidance
Each time this operative makes a shooting attack, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that shooting attack, you can retain one of your attack dice results of 5+ that is a successful hit as a critical hit.

Undivided - Vicious Reavers
Each time this operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, if the target is within of it, you can re-roll one of your attack dice.

Favoured of the Dark Gods

Once per Turning Point, when it is your turn to use a Strategic Ploy, if any friendly operatives with this ability are in the killzone, you can use a Strategic Ploy without spending any CPs; that Strategic Ploy must have the same <MARK OF CHAOS> selectable keyword as one friendly operative with this ability. For example, if an operative with this ability has the KHORNE keyword, you could use the Blood for the Blood God Strategic Ploy. If an operative with this ability has the UNDIVIDED keyword, you can use the following Strategic Ploys for this ability instead: Hateful Assault, Malicious Volleys.

  • It can move within Engagement Range of enemy operatives.
  • If it can, it must finish the move within Engagement Range of the closest Visible enemy operative.

Use this Tactical Ploy when a ready friendly KHORNE operative is incapacitated in combat by an enemy operative.

Spec Ops Rules

Below you will find a selection of rules for Spec Ops campaigns in which you have selected LEGIONARY as your faction keyword.

Battle Honours

Each time a LEGIONARY operative gains a Battle Honour, instead of determining one from its specialism, you can determine one from the Legionary Specialist table below. You can either roll one D6 to randomly determine the Battle Honour (re-rolling if it isn’t suitable), or you can select an appropriate one. As with any Battle Honour, an operative cannot have the same one more than once (if a duplicate result is rolled, roll again until a different result is rolled).

LEGIONARY SPECIALIST

To do so, you can either roll one D6 to randomly determine the rare equipment (re-rolling if it isn’t suitable), or you can select an appropriate one. As with any item of rare equipment, your stash cannot include more than one of each item (if a duplicate result is rolled, roll again until a different result is rolled).

The operative gains the following ability for the battle:

Brands of the Damned: Once per battle, if this operative is in the killzone, you can use a Tactical Ploy without spending any CPs; that Tactical Ploy must have the same <MARK OF CHAOS> selectable keyword as this operative.

Strategic Assets

Each time you would add a strategic asset to your base of operations, if your faction is LEGIONARY, you can select one from the list below instead of selecting one from another source. As with any strategic asset, you can never have more than one of each.

UNCLEAN SHRINE

After battle, the kill team presents offerings to the gods at their shrine. Only those who have claimed the most heads gain their favour.

In the Update Experience step of a mission sequence, the friendly operative that incapacitated the most enemy operatives gains 1XP (if more than one operative is tied for the number of most enemy operatives incapacitated, randomly select one of them to gain the XP). You can only add this strategic asset to your base of operations if your dataslate includes at least one operative of Ace rank or higher.

RELICS OF THE HERESY

The kill team holds in its possession relics dating back to the days of the Horus Heresy.

When this strategic asset is added to your base of operations, add two items of rare equipment to your stash. If this strategic asset is removed from your base of operations, remove those items of rare equipment from your stash.

SACRIFICIAL ALTAR

Before battle, the kill team sacrifices victims to the Dark Gods at this sacrificial altar.

Once per battle, in the Resolve Successful Hits step of a combat or shooting attack, you can ignore the damage inflicted on a friendly LEGIONARY operative from one attack dice.


Requisitions

In a Spec Ops campaign, if your faction is LEGIONARY, you can use the following Requisitions in addition to those presented in other publications.

MARKED FOR GREATNESS1RP

Some warriors earn the favour of the gods thanks to their murderous deeds.

Purchase this Requisition before or after a game, if your dataslate includes an operative of Ace rank or higher. The operative on your dataslate with the most XP gains the following ability:

Marked For Greatness: Once per battle, when this operative fights in combat or makes a shooting attack, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that combat or shooting attack, if you cannot retain any critical hits, you can select one of your normal hits to be retained as a critical hit instead. After each battle, if another operative on your dataslate has more XP than this operative, this operative loses this ability. Note that other operative does not gain this ability, instead you must purchase this Requisition again.
EYE OF THE GODS1RP

Slaughtering an enemy commander is a sure way to receive the gods' attention.

Purchase this Requisition after a game in which the enemy LEADER operative was incapacitated by a friendly LEGIONARY operative. That friendly operative has all Battle Scars removed (if any) and gains D3 XP. You can only use this Requisition once after each game.
CAST ASIDE0RP

It takes little to earn the gods' ire, or to drive them to boredom.

Purchase this Requisition in the Update Dataslates step of a mission sequence, before rolling to determine a Battle Scar for a friendly LEGIONARY operative. Instead of suffering a Battle Scar, for the next D3 battles this operative is in your kill team, it loses the relevant ability related to its <MARK OF CHAOS> keyword (e.g. a NURGLE operative would lose the Disgusting Vigour ability).

Spec Ops

Each time you would select a Spec Op for your kill team to be assigned to, if your faction is LEGIONARY, you can select one from those found below instead of selecting one from another source.

BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD1CP
Strategic Ploy
Until the end of the Turning Point, each time a friendly KHORNE operative fights in combat, in the Resolve Successful Hits step of that combat, if it performed a Charge action during that activation, the first time it strikes, inflict one additional damage.
HATEFUL ASSAULT1CP
Strategic Ploy
Until the end of the Turning Point, each time a friendly LEGIONARY operative is activated, if it does not perform a Shoot action during that activation, it can perform two Fight actions during that activation.
MALICIOUS VOLLEYS1CP
Strategic Ploy
Until the end of the Turning Point, each time a friendly LEGIONARY operative is activated, if it does not perform a Fight action during that activation, it can perform two Shoot actions during that activation if a bolt weapon is selected for each of the shooting attacks. A bolt weapon is a ranged weapon that includes the word ’bolt’ in its name e.g. boltgun, heavy bolter etc.
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.
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.
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.
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+.

The LEGIONARY and PSYKER keywords are used in the following Legionary datacards:

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.
No Cover
Each time a friendly operative makes a shooting attack with this weapon, for that shooting attack, defence dice cannot be automatically retained as a result of Cover (they must be rolled instead).
Blast x
Each time a friendly operative performs a Shoot action and selects this weapon (or, in the case of profiles, this weapon’s profile), after making the shooting attack against the target, make a shooting attack with this weapon (using the same profile) against each other operative Visible to and within X of the original target – each of them is a valid target and cannot be in Cover. X is the distance after the weapon’s Blast, e.g. Blast . An operative cannot make a shooting attack with this weapon by performing an Overwatch action.

  1. An operative performs a Shoot action, selects a ranged weapon with the Blast 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, determining if it is a valid target as if operative A was making the shooting attack.
  3. It cannot make a shooting attack against operative C, as when determining if it is a valid target in this manner, operative C is not Visible to operative A due to the terrain feature between them.
Splash x
Each time a friendly operative makes a shooting attack with this weapon, in the Roll Attack Dice step of that shooting attack, for each critical hit retained, inflict x mortal wounds on the target and each other operative Visible to and within of it. x is the number after the weapon’s Splash, e.g. Splash 1.
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+.
Brutal
Each time a friendly operative fights in combat with this weapon, in the Resolve Successful Hits step of that combat, your opponent can only parry with critical hits.
Favoured of the Dark Gods
Once per Turning Point, when it is your turn to use a Strategic Ploy, if any friendly operatives with this ability are in the killzone, you can use a Strategic Ploy without spending any CPs; that Strategic Ploy must have the same <MARK OF CHAOS> selectable keyword as one friendly operative with this ability. For example, if an operative with this ability has the KHORNE keyword, you could use the Blood for the Blood God Strategic Ploy. If an operative with this ability has the UNDIVIDED keyword, you can use the following Strategic Ploys for this ability instead: Hateful Assault, Malicious Volleys.
SICKENING CAPTIVATION1CP
Tactical Ploy
Use this Tactical Ploy during a friendly SLAANESH operative’s activation. Select one enemy operative Visible to and within of that SLAANESH operative. Subtract 1 from that enemy operative’s APL.
VETERAN OF THE LONG WAR1CP
Tactical Ploy
Use this Tactical Ploy during a friendly LEGIONARY operative’s activation, after it fights in combat or makes a shooting attack. If the target did not lose any wounds as a result of that combat or shooting attack, repeat that combat or shooting attack.
COMMAND RE-ROLL1CP
Tactical Ploy
Use this Tactical Ploy after rolling one of your attack dice or defence dice. You can re-roll that dice.
Relentless
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.
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.

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.
Indirect

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.
Heavy
An operative cannot perform a Charge, Fall Back or Normal Move action in the same activation in which it performs a Shoot action with this ranged weapon.
