FAQ

Expansion: Kill Team: Moroch (Phobos Strike Team)

Q:The INCURSOR MARKSMAN’s Track Target action says ‘If that enemy operative is not incapacitated or revived as a result, finish its activation.’ What does finish mean?
A:
Your opponent continues with the remainder of the enemy operative’s activation.
Q:Does the INCURSOR MARKSMAN’s Track Target action allow it to perform Overwatch more than once in the same Turning Point?
A:
No.
Q:How do you determine climb distance when using the Grapnel Launcher equipment and the first bullet point of the Vanguard Strategic Ploy?
A:
Determine the normal distance, apply Grapnel Launcher, then apply Vanguard. For example, a 2 climb would instead require with a Grapnel Launcher, then Vanguard would ignore that , allowing the operative to ignore the vertical distance of the climb.
Q:How do you determine drop distance when using the Grapnel Launcher equipment and the first bullet point of the Vanguard Strategic Ploy?
A:
As above, determine the normal distance, apply Grapnel Launcher, then apply Vanguard (if needed). For example, a drop would be halved to with a Grapnel Launcher. Drop distances of less than are ignored, so this would allow the operative to use the first bullet point of Vanguard elsewhere during that activation.
Q:How do you resolve Voxbreak (VOXBREAKER operative) and Umbra Shroud (rare equipment) if they both take effect?
A:
Apply both: your opponent must re-roll critical hits, but they cannot re-roll anything else.

Actions and Abilities

Below, you will find a common actions and abilities of the PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM kill team.

Guerrilla Warfare1AP

Every member of a Phobos Strike Team is highly trained in the arts of hit-and-run, guerilla-style warfare. They attack swiftly, fight with incredible coordination, then fade back into the shadows before retribution can find them.

Change this operative’s order. This operative cannot perform this action during the first Turning Point or while within of an enemy operative.

Saboteurs1AP

Incalculable damage can be done to the enemy’s strategic and logistical infrastructure with the application of a single, well-placed explosive by a Vanguard operative.

An operative can perform this action while within of one of your Saboteur tokens. Unless the operative is a SABOTEUR or MINELAYER operative, an operative cannot perform this action while within Engagement Range of an enemy operative. If this action is performed, remove that Saboteur token.

Terror1AP

Exposed to the counter-sensory barrage unleashed by Primaris Reivers, even the staunchest enemy is likely to back fearfully away, or fumble for weapons and wargear with shaking fingers.

Until the end of the Turning Point:
  • Each time an enemy operative would perform a mission action or the Pick Up action, if any friendly operatives that performed this action during this Turning Point are within of that enemy operative, one additional action point must be subtracted for that enemy operative to perform that action.
  • When determining control of an objective marker that any friendly operatives that performed this action during this Turning Point are within range of, treat enemy operatives’ total APL as being 1 less. Note that this is not a modifier.

Multi-spectrum Array

Feeding directly into the autosenses of its bearer, the multi-spectrum array combines energistic augury with oracular vid-sweeps to reveal even cunningly concealed foes.

When determining if an intended target is in this operative’s Line of Sight:
  • For the intended target to be Obscured, it must be more than 2 (instead of ) from a point at which a Cover line crosses a terrain feature that is Obscuring.
  • Areas of smoke (e.g. smoke grenade) have no effect.

Omni-scrambler

These devices allow Primaris Infiltrators to corrupt enemy vox-networks. They choke off signals beneath a shroud of machine-spirit interference and spread tactical paralysis through the ranks of the foe.

Once in each Strategy phase, when it is your turn to use a Strategic Ploy or pass, if any friendly operatives with this ability are in the killzone, you can use this ability instead. If you do so, select one enemy operative Visible to any friendly operative with this ability; in the following Firefight phase, that enemy operative is treated as having a Group Activation characteristic of 1, and cannot be activated or perform actions until one of the following is true:
  • A number of enemy operatives have been activated equal to the number of friendly operatives with this ability in the killzone at the start of the phase.
  • It is the last enemy operative to be activated.

Strategic Ploys

If your faction is PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM, you can use the following Strategic Ploys during a game.

BOLTER DISCIPLINE1CP
Strategic Ploy
Until the end of the Turning Point, each time a friendly PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM 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 those shooting attacks. A bolt weapon is a ranged weapon that includes ‘bolt’ in its name, e.g. bolt carbine, special issue bolt pistol etc.
SHOCK ASSAULT1CP
Strategic Ploy
Until the end of the Turning Point, each time a friendly PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operative is activated, if it does not perform a Shoot action during that activation, it can perform two Fight actions during that activation.
VANGUARD1CP
Strategic Ploy
Until the end of the Turning Point, each time a friendly PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operative is activated, during that activation:
  • It can ignore the first distance of it travels for a climb, drop or traverse.
  • It automatically passes jump tests.
  • Add to its Movement characteristic.
AND THEY SHALL KNOW NO FEAR1CP
Strategic Ploy
Until the end of the Turning Point:
  • You can ignore any or all modifiers to the APL of friendly PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operatives.
  • Friendly PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operatives are not injured.

Tactical Ploys

If your faction is PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM, you can use the following Tactical Ploys during a game.

STEALTH ASSAULT1CP
Tactical Ploy
Use this Tactical Ploy when a friendly PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operative with a Conceal order that is not within Engagement Range of an enemy operative is activated.
  • That operative cannot make shooting attacks during that activation.
  • The first time that operative performs a Fight action during that activation, in the Resolve Successful Hits step of that combat, the first time you resolve one of your successful hits, you can immediately resolve another of your successful hits.

Designer’s Note: Unless the operative can perform a Charge action while it has a Conceal order (e.g. the Assassin Battle Honour), when it is activated, you will need to change its order to Engage to use this Tactical Ploy.
TRANSHUMAN PHYSIOLOGY1CP
Tactical Ploy
Use this Tactical Ploy in the Roll Defence Dice step of a shooting attack, after rolling defence dice for a friendly PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operative. You can retain one of your successful normal saves as a critical save instead.
ONE STEP AHEAD1CP
Tactical Ploy
Use this Tactical Ploy at the end of the Select a Kill Team step of the mission sequence, after kill teams have been revealed. You can remove one friendly PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operative from your kill team and add a different PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operative to your kill team (adhering to the requirements of selecting your kill team). If both players have this or a similar ability, the Defender resolves this ability first.
ELITE RECONNAISSANCE1CP
Tactical Ploy
Use this Tactical Ploy at the end of the Scouting step of the mission sequence. Select one of the following (if both players have this or a similar ability, the Defender resolves this ability first):
  • You can redeploy up to two friendly PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operatives that are wholly within your drop zone as if it were the Set Up Operatives step of the mission sequence.
  • Select and resolve an additional scouting option. It must be a different option to your original selection, and initiative is still determined by your original selection.

Tac Ops

If your faction is PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM, you can use the Phobos Strike Team Tac Ops listed below, as specified in the mission sequence.

SHOCK AND AWE
Phobos Strike Team – Faction Tac Op 1
You can reveal this Tac Op in the Reveal Tac Ops step of any Turning Point.
  • At the end of any Turning Point, if friendly operatives control one or more objective markers that were controlled by enemy operatives at the start of the Turning Point, you score 1VP.
  • If you achieve the first condition in any subsequent Turning Points, you score 1VP.
SABOTEURS
Phobos Strike Team – Faction Tac Op 2
Reveal this Tac Op in the Target Reveal step of the first Turning Point. Starting with your opponent, alternate placing one of your Saboteur tokens in the killzone until three have been placed. Each time a player places a Saboteur token, it must be touching a terrain feature, more than from the killzone edges, more than from your drop zone and each of your other Saboteur tokens, and it must not be on a Vantage Point.
  • If two or more of your Saboteur tokens are removed, you score 1VP.
  • If three of your Saboteur tokens are removed, you score 1VP.
Friendly operatives can perform the Saboteurs mission action.
GUERRILLA TACTICS
Phobos Strike Team – Faction Tac Op 3
You can reveal this Tac Op in the Reveal Tac Ops step of any Turning Point.
  • At the end of any Turning Point, if more enemy operatives were incapacitated than friendly operatives during that Turning Point, and more than half of your operatives have a Conceal order, you score 1VP.
  • If you achieve the first condition in any subsequent Turning Points, you score 1VP.

Spec Ops Rules

Below you will find a selection of rules for Spec Ops campaigns in which you have selected PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM as your Faction keyword.

Battle Honours

Each time a PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operative gains a Battle Honour, instead of determining one from its specialism, you can determine one from the Phobos Strike Team 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).

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).

1. ARTIFICER’S BLADE [3EP]

REIVER or INCURSOR operative only. Select a combat knife or combat blade the operative is equipped with. It gains the following improvements for the battle:

3. EXOGHEIST SCRAMBLER [2EP]

INFILTRATOR operative only. The operative gains the following ability for the battle:

Exogheist Scrambler: For the purposes of this operative’s Omni-scrambler ability, if this operative is in the killzone:

  • An enemy operative does not have to be Visible to a friendly operative with the Omni-scrambler ability to be selected.

  • It gains the MW1 critical hit rule.


Strategic Assets

Each time you would add a strategic asset to your base of operations, if your faction is PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM, 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.

LODESTAR-CLASS AUSPEX

An ancient and little-seen model of advanced auspex, this device provides the Phobos Strike Team with exceptional strategic inloads, almost the equal of having a voidship scanning the region from on high.

Once per battle, you can do one of the following:

SHROUD-SKULLS

This small flock of specialised servo-skulls deploy around the kill team's encampment and employ auspex dampers, vox-stummers and electroshrouding incense to conceal it from inquisitive foes.

Once after each battle, you can add 1 to the result of a Casualty or Recovery test.

ENHANCED SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM

This web of data-choral beacons and servo-scrutinary familiars infests the region around the kill team's encampment to warn of approaching foes, giving the Space Marines the chance to turn an enemy ambush into a counteroffensive of their own.

In the Select Drop Zone step of the mission sequence, after rolling off to determine who decides Attacker and Defender, you can re-roll your dice.


Requisitions

In a Spec Ops campaign, if your faction is PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM, you can use the following Requisitions in addition to those presented in other sources.

ADAPTATION IN THE FIELD1RP

Vanguard Space Marines are highly adaptable operatives trained in all aspects of covert warfare. They can adopt new roles with ease.

Purchase this Requisition before or after a game. Remove one PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operative from your dataslate, then add a different PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operative to your dataslate. That new operative has a number of XP equal to the lowest XP of the removed operative’s rank (select its Battle Honours accordingly). For example, if you removed an operative that had 20XP, the new operative would have 16XP. It also has the same Battle Scars (if any) of the removed operative.
RAPID RESUPPLY1RP

Prior to making planetfall, some Phobos Strike Teams seed small servitor-satellites into low orbital trajectories. At a coded signal these units fire equipment reliquaries planetwards, the armoured cases landing at the kill team's location and allowing rapid strategic refit.

Purchase this Requisition before or after a game. Select one of the following:
  • Remove one or more items of equipment (excluding rare equipment) from your stash, then add one or more items of equipment (excluding rare equipment) to your stash. The total points worth of the new equipment cannot exceed the points worth of the removed equipment.
  • Remove one or more strategic assets from your base of operations, then add one or more strategic assets to your base of operations. You cannot add more than you removed, and you cannot exceed your asset capacity.
SOLEMN OATH1RP

As part of the warrior culture of their Chapter, many Space Marines swear oaths before their battle-brothers to achieve feats of honour or duty, striving to fulfil them during the conflict that follows.

Purchase this Requisition before a game. Select one PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operative from your dataslate to take an Oath of Moment. Select an Oath of Moment below and make a note of it in the Notes section of that operative’s narrative datacard.
  • Valour: The operative must incapacitate the highest number of enemy operatives in the battle.
  • Duty: The operative must score you more victory points from the mission objective than any other friendly operative during the battle.
  • Honour: The operative must be wholly within your opponent’s drop zone at the end of the battle.
At the end of a battle, if that operative completed its Oath of Moment, it earns 2XP (this is not affected by a passed Casualty test); alternatively, you can choose for it to fail its Oath of Moment, in which case it suffers the Cerebral Affliction Battle Scar. In either case, it has no longer taken an Oath of Moment. You can only have one operative from your dataslate take an Oath of Moment at once, each operative can only take each Oath of Moment once, and an operative cannot take another Oath of Moment until a different friendly operative completes or fails an Oath of Moment first.

Spec Ops

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

OPERATION 1: STRATEGIC SCRYING

Through subtle probing, targeted abductions and auspicatory scrying of enemy data-coffers, the kill team must gather the necessary intelligence without overcommitting their forces.

Complete five games in which you scored victory points from the ‘Plant Signal Beacon’, ‘Triangulate’ and/or ‘VantageTac Op.

OPERATION 2: SABOTAGE STRIKE

With their target identified and its vulnerabilities inloaded, the Phobos Strike Team are ready to launch their pinpoint offensive and reduce the enemy asset to blazing ruin.

GRAPNEL LAUNCHER [1EP]

REIVER operative only. The operative gains the following ability for the battle:

Grapnel Launcher:
  • Each time this operative ascends or descends a terrain feature while climbing, the first vertical distance of up to 3 it travels is counted as for that climb.

  • Each time this operative moves off a Vantage Point, for that move, it can move as though it can FLY, so long as it does not move higher than that Vantage Point and ends that move lower than that Vantage Point.

SMOKE GRENADE [3EP]

The operative can perform the following action during the battle:

SMOKE GRENADE1AP

The INCURSOR and MARKSMAN keywords are used in the following Phobos Strike Team 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.

The REIVER keyword is used in the following Phobos Strike Team datacards:

GRAPNEL LAUNCHER [1EP]

REIVER operative only. The operative gains the following ability for the battle:

Grapnel Launcher:
  • Each time this operative ascends or descends a terrain feature while climbing, the first vertical distance of up to 3 it travels is counted as for that climb.
  • This operative does not need to be within of a physical and climbable part of a terrain feature in order to climb it.
  • Each time this operative drops, the intended location can be any vertical distance from the level it occupies.
  • Each time this operative drops, it counts any vertical distance it travels as half for that drop.
VANGUARD1CP
Strategic Ploy
Until the end of the Turning Point, each time a friendly PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operative is activated, during that activation:
  • It can ignore the first distance of it travels for a climb, drop or traverse.
  • It automatically passes jump tests.
  • Add to its Movement characteristic.

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.
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.
Obscured
Regardless of whether a target operative has an Engage or Conceal order, if an Obscuring terrain feature is in the way, an active operative may be unable to have LoS to them. For an intended target to be Obscured, the following must be true:
  • The intended target is more than from a point at which a Cover line crosses a terrain feature that is Obscuring (see Terrain Traits). However, if the active operative is within of a point at which a Cover line crosses a terrain feature that is Obscuring, that part of the terrain feature is not treated as Obscuring.
Cover
If an operative positions themselves in Cover, they will use it for protection while they have an Engage order, or hide behind it while they have a Conceal order. For an intended target to be in Cover, both of the following must be true:
  • The intended target is more than from the active operative.
  • The intended target is within of a point at which a Cover line crosses another operative’s base (unless that other operative is not itself in the active operative’s LoS), or a terrain feature that provides Cover (see Terrain Traits).

Note that an intended target that has an Engage order can gain a defensive benefit for being in Cover as specified in the shooting sequence.

To establish Cover lines, the active operative’s controlling player draws imaginary straight lines, 1mm wide, from any part of the active operative’s base to every part of the intended target’s base.

SMOKE GRENADE [3EP]

The operative can perform the following action during the battle:

SMOKE GRENADE1AP

Place the centre of one Smoke token on a point within of this operative. That token creates an area of smoke with a radius and unlimited upward height (but not below) measured from the centre of that token. Until the end of the Turning Point, an operative is Obscured if every Cover line drawn to it crosses an area of smoke. This operative can only perform this action once, and cannot perform this action while within Engagement Range of an enemy operative.
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.

SABOTEURS1AP

Incalculable damage can be done to the enemy’s strategic and logistical infrastructure with the application of a single, well-placed explosive by a Vanguard operative.

An operative can perform this action while within of one of your Saboteur tokens. Unless the operative is a SABOTEUR or MINELAYER operative, an operative cannot perform this action while within Engagement Range of an enemy operative. If this action is performed, remove that Saboteur token.

GUERRILLA WARFARE1AP

Every member of a Phobos Strike Team is highly trained in the arts of hit-and-run, guerilla-style warfare. They attack swiftly, fight with incredible coordination, then fade back into the shadows before retribution can find them.

Change this operative’s order. This operative cannot perform this action during the first Turning Point or while within of an enemy operative.

The INCURSOR keyword is used in the following Phobos Strike Team datacards:

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+.

The INFILTRATOR keyword is used in the following Phobos Strike Team datacards:

Omni-scrambler

These devices allow Primaris Infiltrators to corrupt enemy vox-networks. They choke off signals beneath a shroud of machine-spirit interference and spread tactical paralysis through the ranks of the foe.

Once in each Strategy phase, when it is your turn to use a Strategic Ploy or pass, if any friendly operatives with this ability are in the killzone, you can use this ability instead. If you do so, select one enemy operative Visible to any friendly operative with this ability; in the following Firefight phase, that enemy operative is treated as having a Group Activation characteristic of 1, and cannot be activated or perform actions until one of the following is true:
  • A number of enemy operatives have been activated equal to the number of friendly operatives with this ability in the killzone at the start of the phase.
  • It is the last enemy operative to be activated.
Silent
While an operative has a Conceal order, it can perform Shoot actions if this is the ranged weapon (or weapon profile) that is selected for the shooting attack(s).
MWx
Mortal wounds. 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, x is the number after the weapon’s MW, e.g. MW3.
ELITE RECONNAISSANCE1CP
Tactical Ploy
Use this Tactical Ploy at the end of the Scouting step of the mission sequence. Select one of the following (if both players have this or a similar ability, the Defender resolves this ability first):
  • You can redeploy up to two friendly PHOBOS STRIKE TEAM operatives that are wholly within your drop zone as if it were the Set Up Operatives step of the mission sequence.
  • Select and resolve an additional scouting option. It must be a different option to your original selection, and initiative is still determined by your original selection.
SHOCK AND AWE
Phobos Strike Team – Faction Tac Op 1
You can reveal this Tac Op in the Reveal Tac Ops step of any Turning Point.
  • At the end of any Turning Point, if friendly operatives control one or more objective markers that were controlled by enemy operatives at the start of the Turning Point, you score 1VP.
  • If you achieve the first condition in any subsequent Turning Points, you score 1VP.
ROUT
Seek & Destroy – Tac Op
You can reveal this Tac Op in the Target Reveal step of any Turning Point.
  • If an enemy operative is incapacitated by a friendly operative that is within of your opponent’s drop zone, you score 1VP.
  • If you achieve the first condition in any subsequent Turning Points, you score 1VP.
SABOTEURS
Phobos Strike Team – Faction Tac Op 2
Reveal this Tac Op in the Target Reveal step of the first Turning Point. Starting with your opponent, alternate placing one of your Saboteur tokens in the killzone until three have been placed. Each time a player places a Saboteur token, it must be touching a terrain feature, more than from the killzone edges, more than from your drop zone and each of your other Saboteur tokens, and it must not be on a Vantage Point.
  • If two or more of your Saboteur tokens are removed, you score 1VP.
  • If three of your Saboteur tokens are removed, you score 1VP.
Friendly operatives can perform the Saboteurs mission action.
EXECUTION
Seek & Destroy – Tac Op
