Some Immortals retain a little more of the sentience that was stolen from their kind during the horrors of biotransference. Far from benefitting the Immortal itself, these characteristics simply make them excellent squad leaders, ultimately furthering the whims of their overlords.

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.

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 FLAYED ONE keyword is used in the following Tomb World 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 IMMORTAL keyword is used in the following Tomb World datacards:

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.
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.
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.
Limited
This weapon can only be selected for use once per battle. If the weapon has a special rule that would allow it to make more than one shooting attack for an action (e.g. Blast), make each of those attacks as normal.
Indirect
Each time a friendly operative makes a shooting attack with this weapon, in the select valid target step of that shooting attack, enemy operatives are not in Cover.
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+.
Px
Piercing. 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, the weapon gains the APx special rule for that shooting attack, x is the number after the weapon’s P, e.g. P1.

The TOMB WORLD keyword is used in the following Tomb World datacards:

The NECRON keyword is used in the following Tomb World datacards:

The <DYNASTY> keyword is used in the following Tomb World 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.
LIVING LIGHTNING1CP
Tactical Ploy
Use this Tactical Ploy in the Roll Attack Dice step of a shooting attack, when one or more critical hits are retained for a shooting attack made with a tesla carbine that a friendly IMMORTAL operative is equipped with. Select one of the following for that shooting attack:
  • Treat that weapon’s Splash 1 critical hit rule as Splash 2 instead.
