Datasheet-related Stratagems

WAVE OF UNNATURAL FLAMES1CP
Legiones Daemonica – Boarding Actions – Battle Tactic Stratagem

When Horrors of Tzeentch uneleash waves of overlapping flames, few are the foes who can escape them.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a HORRORS unit from your army is selected to shoot. Until the end of the phase, each time a ranged attack is made by a model in that unit (excluding Brimstone Horror models), an unmodified successful hit roll of 5+ scores one additional hit.
MAGICAL BOON1CP
Legions of Tzeentch – Epic Deed Stratagem

Arcane knowledge and mystical power have ever been the domain of Tzeentch and his minions.

Use this Stratagem at the start of your Psychic phase. Select one LEGIONES DAEMONICA TZEENTCH PSYKER unit from your army. That unit can attempt to manifest one additional psychic power this turn.
RELICS OF THE IMPOSSIBLE FORTRESS1CP
Legions of Tzeentch – Requisition Stratagem

Many are the arcane devices wielded by the servants of Tzeentch.

Use this Stratagem before the battle, when you are mustering your army. Select one LEGIONES DAEMONICA TZEENTCH CHARACTER model from your army and give them one Relic of Tzeentch (this must be a Relic they can have). Each Relic in your army must be unique, and you cannot use this Stratagem to give a model two Relics. You can only use this Stratagem once, unless you are playing a Strike Force battle (in which case, you can use this Stratagem twice) or an Onslaught battle (in which case, you can use this Stratagem three times).
MUTABLE FORM1CP
Legiones Daemonica – Boarding Actions – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Many daemons can shift their forms at will, drawing on the powers of the warp to manifest new weapons, powers and otherworldly abilities in the blink of an eye.

Use this Stratagem in your Command phase. Select one LEGIONES DAEMONICA model from your army that has any Enhancements. You can replace one of that model’s Enhancements with another. Select an Enhancement as normal and replace one of this model’s existing Enhancements with it. If that new Enhancement has an effect which takes place at a specific point in the battle which has already passed, that Enhancement has no effect.
INSUBSTANTIAL ENTITIES2CP
Legiones Daemonica – Boarding Actions – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Daemons are not mortal creatures, their forms shifting between the warp and realspace, passing through solid barriers with ease.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when a LEGIONES DAEMONICA unit from your army is selected to make a Normal Move. When making that move, models in that unit can move within Engagement Range of enemy models, and can move through models, walls and closed Hatchways, but cannot move more than 6" and cannot end their move within any of these, nor within Engagement Range of any enemy models. You can only use this Stratagem once.
BEINGS OF THE EMPYREAN2CP
Legiones Daemonica – Boarding Actions – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Born of the warp, daemons are highly attuned to its power and tides, able to draw upon it and weave it at will.

Use this Stratagem in your Psychic phase. Select one LEGIONES DAEMONICA PSYKER unit from your army. Until the end of the phase, that unit can attempt to manifest one additional psychic power.
WARP PORTAL1CP/2CP
Legions of Tzeentch – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

This daemon prises open an unnatural shortcut through the warp.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when you select a LEGIONES DAEMONICA TZEENTCH CHARACTER model from your army to make a Normal Move. Instead of moving it as normal, remove that unit from the battlefield and set it up anywhere on the battlefield that is more than 9" from any enemy models. If that CHARACTER model has the HERALD keyword, this Stratagem costs 1CP, otherwise, it costs 2CP.
FLAMES OF MUTATION1CP
Legions of Tzeentch – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Tzeentchian daemons advance wreathed in kaleidoscopic flame.

Use this Stratagem at the end of the Fight phase. Select one HORRORS unit from your army that had any models destroyed during this phase. Select one enemy unit within Engagement Range of that unit, and roll one D6 for each model in that HORRORS unit that was destroyed during this phase. For each 6, that enemy unit suffers 1 mortal wound. A unit can only suffer a maximum of 6 mortal wounds per phase as a result of this Stratagem.
BLASTED STANDARD1CP
Legions of Tzeentch – Wargear Stratagem

The daemons unleash transmutational energies from their icon.

Use this Stratagem at the start of your Psychic phase. Select one LEGIONES DAEMONICA TZEENTCH ICON unit from your army. Until the end of the phase, each time you make an unmodified Psychic test of 9 or more for a friendly LEGIONES DAEMONICA TZEENTCH PSYKER unit within 12" of that unit, the closest enemy unit within 24" of and visible to that selected unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

Psychic Powers

Smite

Smite has a warp charge value of 5. Add 1 to the warp charge value of this psychic power for each other attempt that has been made to manifest this power by a unit from your army in this phase, whether that attempt was successful or not. If manifested, the closest enemy unit within 18" of and visible to the psyker suffers D3 mortal wounds. If the result of the Psychic test was 11 or more, that unit suffers D6 mortal wounds instead.

  • Warp Charge 5: A Psychic test of 5+ is required to manifest Smite.
  • Warp charge increases by 1 for each other attempt to manifest Smite made in this phase.
  • If manifested, closest visible enemy unit in 18" suffers D3 mortal wounds.
  • If manifested with a Psychic test result of 11+, enemy instead suffers D6 mortal wounds.

Pandaemoniac Discipline

D6PSYCHIC POWER
1

BOON OF CHANGE

As the daemon chants, its minions begin to twist and new forms take shape as the will of Tzeentch demands.

Blessing: Boon of Change has a warp charge value of 6. If manifested, select one friendly LEGIONES DAEMONICA TZEENTCH unit within 18" of this PSYKER and roll one D3. Until the start of your next Psychic phase, that unit gains the relevant bonus from the table below:

D3EFFECT
1Extra Limbs: Add 2" to the Move characteristic of models in that unit.
2Mystical Strength: Add 1 to the Strength characteristic of models in that unit.
3Resilient Hide: Add 1 to the Toughness characteristic of models in that unit.

If the result of the Psychic test was 9 or more, you can select which result applies instead of rolling a D3.

2

BOLT OF CHANGE

The daemon unleashes a bolt of warp energy that afflicts the foe with sickening and uncontrollable mutations.

Witchfire: Bolt of Change has a warp charge value of 7. If manifested, select one enemy unit within 18" of and visible to this PSYKER, and roll nine D6:

  • For each 5+, that enemy unit suffers 1 mortal wound.
  • For each model destroyed as a result of these mortal wounds, that unit suffers 1 additional mortal wound (to a maximum of 3). These additional mortal wounds cannot generate any additional mortal wounds.

3

GAZE OF FATE

Using its powers of precognition to unravel the strands of destiny, this daemon extracts secrets from the sea of souls and channels them through its own potent form.

Blessing: Gaze of Fate has a warp charge value of 7. If manifested, at the end of the battle round, if this PSYKER is on the battlefield, you can retain up to 2 unspent Warp Storm points.

4

TREASON OF TZEENTCH

The psyker reaches into the mind of its victim, subverting their will and turning them upon their own allies.

Malediction: Treason of Tzeentch has a warp charge value of 7. If manifested, select one enemy unit within 18" of and visible to this PSYKER. Until the start of your next Psychic phase, that enemy unit is not affected by the aura abilities of other enemy units.

5

INFERNAL FLAMES

Cackling madly, the psyker’s minions are wreathed in pink and blue flames that leap forth to consume their foes.

Blessing: Infernal Flames has a warp charge value of 7. If manifested, select one friendly LEGIONES DAEMONICA TZEENTCH CORE unit within 18" of and visible to this PSYKER. Until the start of your next Psychic phase, each time a model in that unit makes a ranged attack, add 1 to that attack’s wound roll.

6

INFERNAL GATEWAY

Opening a portal to the warp, this daemon creates a tear in the fabric of the mortal plane that sucks foes into certain oblivion.

Witchfire: Infernal Gateway has a warp charge value of 8. If manifested, the closest enemy unit within 18" of and visible to this PSYKER and each other enemy unit within 3" of that enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. If the result of the Psychic test was 12 or more, each affected unit suffers 3 mortal wounds instead.

Engagement Range
Engagement Range represents the zone of threat that models present to their enemies. While a model is within 1" horizontally and 5" vertically of an enemy model, those models are within Engagement Range of each other. While two enemy models are within Engagement Range of each other, those models’ units are also within Engagement Range of each other. Models cannot be set up within Engagement Range of enemy models.

  • Engagement Range: 1" horizontally + 5" vertically.
  • Models cannot be set up within Engagement Range of enemy models.
Select Weapon
When a model makes a close combat attack, it must do so using a melee weapon (i.e. a weapon that has the ‘Melee’ type). The weapons a model is equipped with are described on its datasheet. If a model is not equipped with any melee weapons, or if it cannot make an attack with any of the melee weapons it is equipped with, then that model makes its attacks using a close combat weapon, which has the following profile:

WEAPONRANGETYPESAPD
Close combat weaponMeleeMeleeUser01

If a model has more than one melee weapon, select which it will use before resolving any attacks. If a model has more than one melee weapon and can make several attacks, it can split them between these weapons however you wish – declare which attacks are being made with which weapons before any attacks are resolved. If the selected weapon has more than one profile that you must choose between, you must declare which profile is being used at the same time. Different attacks made with such a weapon can be made using different profiles if you wish.

If your unit is making attacks with more than one melee weapon against a unit, and those weapons have different characteristics profiles, then after you have resolved an attack with one of those weapons you must, if any other weapons with the same characteristics profile are also being used to make attacks against that unit, resolve those attacks before resolving any attacks against the target with a weapon that has a different characteristics profile. Note that all the attacks you have declared are always resolved against the target unit even if, when you come to resolve an individual attack, no models in the target unit remain in range (this can happen because of models being destroyed and removed from the battlefield as the result of resolving other attacks made by the attacking model’s unit first).

  • Each close combat attack is made with a melee weapon.
  • A model makes attacks using the close combat weapon profile if it has no other melee weapons.
  • If a unit attacks with multiple weapons, all attacks made with weapons that have the same profile must be resolved before resolving attacks with the next.
Daemonic Invulnerability

Daemons are madness given form. Their very bodies are fashioned from the stuff of the warp, and are difficult to destroy through conventional means. By far the surest way to banish them, short of ritual witchery, is to fight them at close quarters where a warrior’s conviction and faith may strike as surely as their blade.

Instead of a normal Save characteristic as described in the Warhammer 40,000 Core Book, each LEGIONES DAEMONICA datasheet has a Daemonic Save characteristic (abbreviated to DSv on that datasheet’s profile line). This characteristic has two values. The first characteristic is used when a melee attack is allocated to that model, while the second characteristic is used when a ranged attack is allocated to that model. In either case, this saving throw cannot be modified in any way.
Allegiance Keywords
Most of the datasheets in this book have an Allegiance keyword. The following are Allegiance keywords:
  • KHORNE
  • TZEENTCH
  • NURGLE
  • SLAANESH
If a unit instead has the Faction keyword, then when you add that unit to your army, you must select one of the listed Allegiance keywords above and replace the keyword in all instances on that Datasheet with the selected Allegiance keyword.

Example: If you include a Daemon Prince in your army, and you decide it is a Daemon Prince of Khorne, its keyword becomes KHORNE and its Prince of Chaos ability reads, ‘While a friendly LEGIONES DAEMONICA KHORNE CORE unit is within 6" of this model, each time a model in that unit makes an attack, re-roll a hit roll of 1.’
Manifestation

Daemonic legions tear through the fabric of realspace, malevolent entities flickering into being like phantasms from a nightmare. Worse still, as terror and panic take hold of their victims, so their mortal souls become ever easier prey for the entities pouring through from the warp.

During deployment, you can set up this unit in the warp instead of setting it up on the battlefield. If you do so, then in the Reinforcements step of one of your Movement phases you can set up this unit anywhere on the battlefield that is more than 9" away from any enemy models, or more than 6" away from any enemy models and wholly within 6" of a friendly WARP LOCUS model that was on the battlefield at the start of your turn. If that WARP LOCUS model has an Allegiance keyword, the unit being set up can only use this ability if it has the same Allegiance keyword.

If every unit from your army has the LEGIONES DAEMONICA keyword, then in the Reinforcements step of one of your Movement phases you can instead set up this unit anywhere on the battlefield with one of the following restrictions:
  • Wholly within your deployment zone and more than 3" away from any enemy models.
  • Neither wholly within your deployment zone nor within your opponent’s deployment zone, and more than a number of inches away from each enemy unit, equal to the current Leadership characteristic of that enemy unit (to a minimum of 3" and a maximum of 9").
Daemonic Terror (Aura)

To encounter a creature of the warp is to face a being utterly anathema to the fundamental laws of reality. Even the most emotionless warrior feels an unnatural primal terror while in their presence.

While an enemy unit is within 6" of this unit, subtract 1 from that enemy unit’s Leadership characteristic and subtract 1 from any Combat Attrition tests taken for that enemy unit.
Warp Storm

When daemons pour into realspace, maelstroms of warp energy spill through in their wake. Manifest emotion and unbridled, nightmarish energies twist all that they touch, reshaping the landscape into bizarre forms and tormenting mortal beings.

This ability can be used to apply Warp Storm effects to eligible units from your army.
Daemonic
This unit has the following abilities: Daemonic Invulnerability; Manifestation; Daemonic Terror; Warp Storm.

The LEGIONES DAEMONICA, TZEENTCH and CORE keywords are used in the following Chaos Daemons datasheets:

Elites
Fast Attack
Wound Roll
Each time an attack scores a hit against a target unit, make a wound roll for that attack by rolling one D6 to see if that attack successfully wounds the target. The result required is determined by comparing the attacking weapon’s Strength (S) characteristic with the target’s Toughness (T) characteristic, as shown on the following table:

WOUND ROLL
ATTACK’S STRENGTH vs TARGET’S TOUGHNESSD6 ROLL REQUIRED
Is the Strength TWICE (or more) than the Toughness?2+
Is the Strength GREATER than the Toughness?3+
Is the Strength EQUAL to the Toughness?4+
Is the Strength LOWER than the Toughness?5+
Is the Strength HALF (or less) than the Toughness?6+

If the result of the wound roll is less than the required number, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified wound roll of 6 always successfully wounds the target, and an unmodified wound roll of 1 always fails. A wound roll can never be modified by more than -1 or +1. This means that if, after all the cumulative modifiers to a wound roll have been calculated, the total modifier would be -2 or worse, it is changed to be -1. Similarly, if, after all the cumulative modifiers to a wound roll have been calculated, the total modifier would be +2 or better, it is changed to be +1.
Manifesting Psychic Powers
When you select a PSYKER unit to manifest psychic powers, you select one psychic power that unit knows and attempt to manifest it. With the exception of Smite, you cannot attempt to manifest the same psychic power more than once in the same battle round, even with different PSYKER units. The same PSYKER unit cannot attempt to manifest Smite more than once during the same battle round.

To manifest the psychic power, you must first pass a Psychic test. The opposing player can then select one of their PSYKER units that is within 24" of the PSYKER unit attempting to manifest the power and attempt to deny that power before its effects are resolved by passing a Deny the Witch test.

So long as the Psychic test was successful and the psychic power was not denied by a successful Deny the Witch test, the psychic power is successfully manifested and its effects, which will be described in the power itself, are then resolved. If the PSYKER unit can attempt to manifest more than one psychic power in its Psychic phase, you can then attempt to manifest those, one at a time, as described above. The number of psychic powers each PSYKER unit can attempt to manifest in its Psychic phase is listed on its datasheet.

  • Select psychic power.
  • You cannot select the same psychic power more than once per battle round, unless that power is Smite.
  • Attempt to manifest the psychic power by taking a Psychic test.
  • The opponent can attempt to deny the psychic power by taking a Deny the Witch test.
  • If successfully manifested, resolve the psychic power’s effects.
  • Select another psychic power.
Deny the Witch
When a PSYKER unit attempts to deny a psychic power, you must take a Deny the Witch test for that unit by rolling 2D6. If the total is greater than the result of the Psychic test, the Deny the Witch test is passed and the psychic power is denied. Only one attempt can be made to deny a psychic power. If a PSYKER unit can attempt to deny more than one psychic power in a psychic phase, this will be listed on its datasheet.

  • Deny the Witch: Passed if 2D6 exceeds result of the opposing PSYKER’s Psychic test.
  • Only one attempt can be made to deny each psychic power.
Mortal Wounds
Some attacks inflict mortal wounds – these are so powerful that no armour or force field can withstand their fury. Each mortal wound inflicts 1 point of damage on the target unit, and they are always applied one at a time. Do not make a wound roll or saving throw (including invulnerable saves) against a mortal wound – just allocate it as you would any other attack and inflict damage to a model in the target unit. Unlike damage inflicted by normal attacks, excess damage from mortal wounds is not lost. Instead, keep allocating damage to another model in the target unit until either all the damage has been allocated or the target unit is destroyed.

If an attack inflicts mortal wounds in addition to the normal damage, resolve the normal damage first. If an attack inflicts mortal wounds in addition to the normal damage, but the normal damage is subsequently saved, the target unit still suffers the mortal wounds, as described before. If an ability modifies the damage inflicted by a weapon, and that weapon can inflict mortal wounds in addition to the normal damage, the modifier does not apply to any mortal wounds that are inflicted (unless the rule specifically states otherwise).

  • Each mortal wound inflicted on a unit causes one model in the unit to lose one wound.
  • No saving throws can be made against mortal wounds.
  • Mortal wounds inflicted by attacks in addition to normal damage always apply, even if normal damage saved.
Psychic Tests
When a PSYKER unit attempts to manifest a psychic power, you must take a Psychic test for that unit by rolling 2D6. If the total is equal to or greater than that power’s warp charge value, the Psychic test is passed. If you roll a double 1 or a double 6 when taking a Psychic test, that unit immediately suffers Perils of the Warp.

  • Psychic test: Passed if 2D6 equals or exceeds psychic power’s warp charge.
  • If double 1 or double 6 rolled, PSYKER suffers Perils of the Warp.
Smite

Smite has a warp charge value of 5. Add 1 to the warp charge value of this psychic power for each other attempt that has been made to manifest this power by a unit from your army in this phase, whether that attempt was successful or not. If manifested, the closest enemy unit within 18" of and visible to the psyker suffers D3 mortal wounds. If the result of the Psychic test was 11 or more, that unit suffers D6 mortal wounds instead.

  • Warp Charge 5: A Psychic test of 5+ is required to manifest Smite.
  • Warp charge increases by 1 for each other attempt to manifest Smite made in this phase.
  • If manifested, closest visible enemy unit in 18" suffers D3 mortal wounds.
  • If manifested with a Psychic test result of 11+, enemy instead suffers D6 mortal wounds.

The HORRORS keyword is used in the following Chaos Daemons datasheets:

Hit Roll
When a model makes an attack, make one hit roll for that attack by rolling one D6. If the result of the hit roll is equal to or greater than the attacking model’s Ballistic Skill (BS) characteristic (if the attack is being made with a ranged weapon) or its Weapon Skill (WS) characteristic (if the attack is being made with a melee weapon), then that attack scores one hit against the target unit. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends.

If an attack is made with a weapon that has an ability that says it ‘automatically hits the target’, no hit roll is made – that attack simply scores one hit on the target unit. An unmodified hit roll of 6 always scores a hit, and an unmodified hit roll of 1 always fails. A hit roll can never be modified by more than -1 or +1. This means that if, after all the cumulative modifiers to a hit roll have been calculated, the total modifier would be -2 or worse, it is changed to be -1. Similarly, if, after all the cumulative modifiers to a hit roll have been calculated, the total modifier would be +2 or better, it is changed to be +1.

The LEGIONES DAEMONICA, TZEENTCH and PSYKER keywords are used in the following Chaos Daemons datasheets:


- If this model has the TZEENTCH, NURGLE or SLAANESH keyword, it has the PSYKER keyword.
Normal Move
When a unit makes a Normal Move, each model in that unit can move a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move (M) characteristic shown on its datasheet, but no model can be moved within Engagement Range of enemy models.

  • Normal Move: Models move up to M".
  • Cannot move within Engagement Range of any enemy models.

The LEGIONES DAEMONICA, TZEENTCH and CHARACTER keywords are used in the following Chaos Daemons datasheets:

The LEGIONES DAEMONICA, TZEENTCH and ICON keywords are used in the following Chaos Daemons datasheets:


– if equipped with the Daemonic icon this unit gains the ICON keyword.
Aura Abilities
Some abilities affect models or units in a given range – these are aura abilities. A model with an aura ability is always within range of its effect. The effects of multiple, identically named aura abilities are not cumulative (i.e. if a unit is within range of two models with the same aura ability, that aura ability only applies to the unit once).

ASSAULT
Assault weapons fire so rapidly or indiscriminately that they can be shot from the hip as warriors dash forwards into combat.
If a unit includes any models equipped with Assault weapons, that unit is still eligible to shoot with in your Shooting phase even if it has Advanced this turn, but you can only resolve attacks using those Assault weapons when you select that unit to shoot with. If a model shoots an Assault weapon in the same turn in which its unit has Advanced, subtract 1 from hit rolls when resolving that weapon’s attacks.

  • Can be shot even if firing model’s unit Advanced.
  • Subtract 1 from hit rolls if the firing model’s unit Advanced.
