Datasheet-related Stratagems

REVOLTING CONSTITUTION1CP/2CP
Legions of Nurgle – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The supernatural corruption of Plaguebearers’ physical forms is such that even the most grievous wounds do not trouble them.

Use this Stratagem when a PLAGUEBEARER’s unit from your army is selected as the target of an attack. Until the end of the phase, each time an attack is made against that unit, an unmodified wound roll of 1-3 for that attack fails, irrespective of any abilities that the weapon or the model making the attack may have. If that unit has a Power Rating of 12 or more, this Stratagem costs 2CP, otherwise, it costs 1CP.
PESTILENT INSPIRATION1CP
Legions of Nurgle – Epic Deed Stratagem

From the germ of an idea may grow the most perfect plagues.

Use this Stratagem at the start of your Psychic phase. Select one LEGIONES DAEMONICA NURGLE PSYKER model from your army. Until the end of the phase, that model knows all of the psychic powers from the Warprot discipline.
RELICS OF THE GREAT GARDEN1CP
Legions of Nurgle – Requisition Stratagem

Nurgle is said to be all-too-generous with his glopsome gifts.

Use this Stratagem before the battle, when you are mustering your army. Select one LEGIONES DAEMONICA NURGLE CHARACTER model from your army and give them one Relic of Nurgle (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.

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.

Warprot Discipline

D6PSYCHIC POWER
1

STREAM OF CORRUPTION

The daemon’s jaws stretch impossibly wide. Its rotten body convulses, heaving out clouds of rancid gas and flies before at last it ejects a jetting river of diseased vomit. So contagious and corrosive is this tide of foulness that those not drowned by it are often dissolved into organic gruel or left stricken by supernatural sickness.

Witchfire: Stream of Corruption has a warp charge value of 6. If manifested, the closest enemy unit within 12" of and visible to this PSYKER suffers D3 mortal wounds. If that unit contains 11 or more models, that unit suffers D3+2 mortal wounds instead.

2

FLESHY ABUNDANCE

The daemon blesses their allies with Nurgle’s bountiful energies, swelling them into even more grotesquely resilient and corpulent forms.

Blessing: Fleshy Abundance has a warp charge value of 7. If manifested, select one friendly LEGIONES DAEMONICA NURGLE CORE unit within 18" of and visible to this PSYKER. Until the start of your next Psychic phase, add 1 to the Toughness characteristic of models in that unit.

3

NURGLE’S ROT

Gurgling praise to its god, the daemon exudes a wave of soul-pox that eats away the spiritual essence of those who lack Nurgle’s blessings. Victims’ eyes become glassy, their flesh sinks upon their bones and their limbs fall slack before they collapse and begin to rot before their horrified comrades’ eyes.

Witchfire: Nurgle’s Rot has a warp charge value of 7. If manifested, roll 2D6 for each enemy unit within 6" of this PSYKER. If the result is higher than the highest Toughness characteristic of models in that unit, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. If the result is at least double the highest Toughness characteristic of models in that unit, that unit suffers D6 mortal wounds instead.

4

SHRIVELLING POX

Muttering an unholy chant in a blighted tongue, the daemon calls down a foul malignancy that races through the enemies’ ranks like wildfire and chews away at their flesh and organs like a tide of ravenous maggots.

Malediction: Shrivelling Pox has a warp charge value of 6. If manifested, select one enemy unit within 18" of and visible to this PSYKER. Until the start of your next Psychic phase, subtract 1 from the Toughness characteristic of models in that unit.

5

VIRULENT BLESSING

Calling upon the myriad gifts of Nurgle, the daemon infuses its allies’ weapons, fangs and talons with a seething mix of supernatural maladies that render their merest touch inimical to their luckless victims.

Blessing: Virulent Blessing has a warp charge value of 6. If manifested, select one friendly LEGIONES DAEMONICA NURGLE CORE unit within 18" of and visible to this PSYKER. Until the start of your next Psychic phase, add 1 to the Damage characteristic of melee weapons models in that unit are equipped with.

6

MALODOROUS PALL

Chanting in a phlegm-choked drone, the daemon conjures forth a dense cloud of occluding corpse-gas and biting, blinding flies to engulf the enemy and leave them nauseated and reeling.

Malediction: Malodorous Pall has a warp charge value of 8. 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:

  • Cannot perform actions (if that enemy unit is currently performing an action, it immediately fails).
  • Loses the Objective Secured ability.

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.
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.
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.
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.

Objective Secured
Some units have an ability called Objective Secured. A player controls an objective marker if they have any models with this ability within range of that objective marker, even if there are more enemy models within range of that objective marker. If an enemy model within range of an objective marker also has this ability (or a similar ability), then the objective marker is controlled by the player who has the most models within range of that objective marker as normal.

  • Objective Secured: Player controls objective marker if any of their models in range have this ability.
Power Ratings
Every unit has a Power Rating listed on its datasheet, and it is a measure of its efficacy on the battlefield. They are designed to give players, at a glance, an idea of how mighty a unit is on the battlefield, irrespective of the weapons its models can be equipped with. They can therefore be used as a quick guide to establish the comparative strength of each army.

The Power Rating on a datasheet is for a minimum-sized unit. A unit’s Power Rating can be increased if additional models are added to the unit, and occasionally if other options are taken for the unit (such as equipping a unit with jump packs) - in either case the unit's datasheet will make it clear if the Power Rating listed at the top of the datasheet is increased as a result.

  • Power Ratings: Quick measure of a unit's efficacy.
