Assets

REBINDING ALTAR

Upon this altar, following perilous rituals and unholy offerings, rent and ruined plates of Rubricae armour are made whole, and the damned echoes of their imprisoned wearers are conjured back to serve again.

Each time you roll one D6 to determine a Battle Scar for a friendly RUBRIC MARINE operative, you can treat all results (excluding Slain) as Cerebral Affliction.

DIVINE ORRERY

This complex set of darkly esoteric equipment reads the strands of fate, alignments of planets and the falling sands of time to give the kill team knowledge of a key moment in their future.

At the start of the battle, secretly make a note of a specific Turning Point other than the first (e.g. Turning Point 3). When rolling off to determine initiative for that Turning Point, roll a D3 and add the result to your score. If you re-roll your dice for this roll off, you must also re-roll the D3.

HERDSTONE

This nexus of change serves as a focal point for the Tzaangors’ worship of Tzeentch. In return, it ignites ever-changing mutations within select Beastmen.

After selecting your kill team for each battle, you can select one friendly TZAANGOR operative selected for deployment that does not already have any Boons of Tzeentch. That operative gains one Boon of Tzeentch for the battle (that boon is removed at the end of the battle).


Requisitions

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

Purchase this Requisition before or after a game. Remove one Boon of Tzeentch from one friendly WARPCOVEN operative. That operative then gains one Boon of Tzeentch.
LORE STUDY1RP

The Sorcerer delves into ancient and forbidden tomes, refocusing their efforts on a new discipline of powerful sorcery.

If that operative has the Studious Battle Honour, you can also select a different psychic power for that Battle Honour in addition to, or instead of, selecting a new discipline to study.
PURSUIT OF THE ARCANE1RP

All manner of ancient artefacts and strange curios are articles for study and collection. For Tzaangor they are precious treasures; for the Thousand Sons of the Legion they are potential sources of power.

Purchase this Requisition when you add an item of rare equipment to your stash, or when you increase your asset capacity by one. Select one friendly WARPCOVEN operative (excluding a RUBRIC MARINE operative) to gain 2XP.

Spec Ops

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

Labyrinthine Plans

SPEC OPS BONUS
For the purposes of a mission’s Spec Ops bonus, this Spec Op is considered a ‘Perform Ritual’ Spec Op.

Arcane Artefact

Whether it be an ancient tome of Lore, a strange relic or a seemingly trivial trinket, the Thousand Sons know of a powerful arcane artefact hidden within the area. The kill team must discover its Location from those unknowing of its true power, then claim it for themselves.

OPERATION 1: DISCERN LOCATION

The kill team use all manner of subterfuge and tricks to discern the location of the arcane artefact they seek.

Complete five games in which you scored victory points from the ‘Scry Secret’, ‘Rob and Ransack’ and/or ‘Interloper’ Tac Op.

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.
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.
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+.
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).
Fly
Each time an operative makes any kind of move, if it has the FLY keyword, it can move around, across and over other operatives (and their bases) as if they were not there, but must finish its move following all requirements specified by that move, and cannot finish its move on top of other operatives (or their bases).
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 WARPCOVEN and SORCERER keywords are used in the following Warpcoven datacards:

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.
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.
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 within x of the original target. When determining if each other operative is a valid target or in Cover, treat the original target as the active operative. 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.
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.
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.
Barrage
Each time a friendly operative makes a shooting attack with this weapon, for that shooting attack, the automatic retention of defence dice as a result of cover is determined differently. Instead, if any part of the operative’s base is hidden by a terrain feature from directly above, the defender can retain defence dice as if they were in cover.
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.
Psychic Action
This is a term for a certain kind of action. This term provides no additional rules on its own, but other rules may interact with actions that have this term.
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.
Boons of Tzeentch
Boons of Tzeentch are Chaos blessings available to WARPCOVEN operatives. When a SORCERER operative is added to your roster or dataslate, it gains one Boon of Tzeentch - select or randomly determine one for it to gain, as described below.

When an operative gains a Boon of Tzeentch by any other means (i.e. WARPCOVEN Spec Ops rules, roll one D6: on a 1-2, randomly determine one for it to gain; on a 3+, select or randomly determine one for it to gain An operative can never have the same boon more than once (if randomly determined and neither order of results would determine a unique boon, roll again). Make a note of each operative’s Boons of Tzeentch on your roster or dataslate.

When you select a boon for a SORCERER operative to gain, you can select one from any of the categories on the right, but you cannot select one a SORCERER operative on your roster or dataslate already has. When you randomly determine a boon for a SORCERER operative to gain, roll two D3, selecting one result to determine the category of boon and the other result to determine the boon

When you select a boon for a TZAANGOR operative to gain, you must select one from the Mutation category, but you cannot select one a TZAANGOR operative on your roster or dataslate already has. When you randomly determine a boon for a TZAANGOR operative to gain, roll one D3 to determine the boon from the Mutation category.

Mutation

1. Warp Swell: Add 1 to the Normal Damage characteristic of melee weapons this operative is equipped with.

2. Mutant Appendage: Once per Turning Point, during this operative’s activation, it can perform a mission action or the Pick Up action for one less AP (to a minimum of 0AP).

3. Avian Talons: Each time this operative fights in combat, if it performed a Charge action during this activation, in the Resolve Successful Hits step of that combat, if you did not retain any critical hits, you can strike with one normal hit as if it were a critical hit.

Fate

1. Patron of Destiny: Once per Turning Point, when this operative is fighting in combat or making a shooting attack or a shooting attack is being made against it, you can use the Command Re-roll Tactical Ploy without spending any CPs.
