The Eternal Dance: At the start of the Fight phase, select one enemy unit within Engagement Range of this model. Then select one of the following effects:
  • Until the end of the phase, each time a friendly LEGIONES DAEMONICA SLAANESH model makes a melee attack against that unit, add 1 to that attack’s hit roll.
  • Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes a melee attack, subtract 1 from that attack’s hit roll.
  • Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes a melee attack, subtract 1 from that attack’s wound roll.
Herald of Slaanesh (Aura): While a friendly LEGIONES DAEMONICA SLAANESH CORE unit is within 6" of this model, each time a model in that unit makes an attack, you can re-roll a wound roll of 1.
Dazzling Acrobatics:
  • Each time this model makes a Normal Move, Advances, Falls Back or makes a charge move, until that move is finished, this model can move horizontally through models and terrain features (it cannot finish a move on top of another model, or its base).
  • This unit is eligible to charge in a turn in which it Fell Back.
WARLORD TRAIT!
WARLORD TRAIT!
The Murderdance: Each time this WARLORD fights, if it made a charge move this turn, then until that fight is resolved, add D3 to its Attacks characteristic.

Datasheet-related Stratagems

THIRST FOR SOULS1CP
Legions of Slaanesh – Battle Tactic Stratagem

As extensions of their patron deity, the daemons of Slaanesh salivate with undisguised desire at the thought of devouring Aeldari souls.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a LEGIONES DAEMONICA SLAANESH unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes a melee attack against an AELDARI unit, you can re-roll the hit roll and you can re-roll the wound roll.
RAZOR-SHARP CARESS1CP
Legions of Slaanesh – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The keenness of the Daemonettes’ desire to torment their foes manifests in the razored kiss of their vicious talons.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a DAEMONETTES unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes a melee attack, on an unmodified wound roll of 6, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of that attack by 1.
THE ENDLESS DANCE1CP
Legions of Slaanesh – Battle Tactic Stratagem

These daemons flow ever-onward through the steps of an immortal ballet, a hideously graceful and wholly unnatural performance that speeds them across the battlefields of realspace.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a DAEMONETTES unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes a pile-in or consolidation move, it can move up to an additional 3". This is not cumulative with any other rule that increases the distance models can pile in or consolidate.
IMPOSSIBLE ELEGANCE1CP
Legions of Slaanesh – Epic Deed Stratagem

The greatest ofSlaanesh’s daemons move with an idealised grace and agility rendered hideous by its sheer precision and impossibility.

Use this Stratagem at the start of the Fight phase. Select one LEGIONES DAEMONICA SLAANESH CHARACTER model from your army (excluding VEHICLE units). Until the end of the phase, each time a melee attack is made against that unit, an unmodified hit roll of 1-3 always fails, irrespective of any abilities that the weapon or the model making the attack may have.
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.
DARK ALLURE1CP
Legiones Daemonica – Boarding Actions – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Daemons of Slaanesh possess a sickening yet mesmerising beauty that renders their enemies glassy-eyed with entrancement.

Use this Stratagem at the end of your Movement phase. Select one enemy unit within 9" of and visible to one or more SLAANESH units from your army. Roll 2D6, if that SLAANESH unit has the CHARACTER keyword, you can re-roll this result: if the result is greater than or equal to that enemy unit’s Leadership characteristic, then until the start of your next Movement phase:
  • That unit cannot perform actions other than the Operate Hatchway action (if it is currently performing an action, it immediately fails), cannot fire Overwatch and is no longer Set to Defend.
  • Subtract 2" from the Move charactistic of models in that enemy unit and halve Advance and charge rolls made for it.
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.
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.
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.

Advance
When a unit makes an Advance, make an Advance roll for the unit by rolling one D6. Add the result in inches to the Move (M) characteristic of each model in that unit until the end of the current phase. Each model in that unit can then move a distance in inches equal to or less than this total, but no model can be moved within Engagement Range of enemy models. A unit cannot shoot or declare a charge in the same turn that it made an Advance.

  • Advance: Models move up to M+D6".
  • Cannot move within Engagement Range of enemy models.
  • Units that Advance cannot shoot or charge this turn.

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

Elites
Fast Attack
Charging with a Unit
Once you have chosen an eligible unit to declare a charge with, you must select one or more enemy units within 12" of it as the targets of its charge. The target(s) of this charge do not need to be visible to the charging unit. You then make a charge roll for your unit by rolling 2D6. This is the maximum number of inches each model in the charging unit can now be moved if they can make the charge move. To make a charge move, the unit’s charge roll must be sufficient that it is able to end that move in unit coherency and within Engagement Range of every unit that was a target of its charge, without moving within Engagement Range of any enemy units that were not a target of its charge. If this is possible, then the charge is successful and the models in the unit make a charge move so as to fulfil the above conditions. If this is impossible, the charge fails and no models in the charging unit move this phase.

  • Declare targets of the charge (must be within 12").
  • Charge roll = 2D6".
  • If insufficient to move charging unit into Engagement Range of all targets, charge fails.
  • If charge successful, models make their charge move.
  • Cannot make a charge move within Engagement Range of any unit that was not the target of the charge.
Pile In
When a unit piles in, you can move each model in that unit up to 3" – this is a pile-in move. Each model in the unit must finish its pile-in move closer to the closest enemy model. A model that is already touching an enemy model cannot move, but still counts as having piled in. Remember that a unit must finish any type of move in unit coherency.

  • Pile in: Move up to 3".
  • Must end closer to the closest enemy model.
Consolidate
When a unit consolidates, you can move each model in the unit up to 3" – this is a Consolidation move. Each model must finish its Consolidation move closer to the closest enemy model. A model that is already touching an enemy model cannot move, but still counts as having consolidated. Remember that a unit must finish any type of move in unit coherency.

  • Consolidate: Move up to 3".
  • Must end closer to the closest enemy model.
Characters
Some models have the CHARACTER keyword. These models can make Heroic Interventions in Charge Phase and are not easy targets in the Shooting Phase (see Look out, Sir, rule). If your Warlord has the CHARACTER keyword he may be able to have a Warlord Trait (see Warlord Trait section on model’s faction page).

Note that CHARACTERS cannot use their Aura Abilities while performing actions.
Engagement Range
When measuring to see if one model is within Engagement Range of another, if the shortest line between those two models passes through an open Hatchway, then those models are within Engagement Range if they are within 2" of one another, as shown below.


  • Both Models B and C are within Engagement Range of Model A, as the shortest distance between them passes through an open Hatchway and they are within 2" of one another.
  • However, Model D is not within 2" of Model A and so these two are not within Engagement Range.
Operate Hatchway
One or more units from your army can start to perform this action at the end of the Move Units step of your Movement phase if they are within 1" of a Hatchway. This action can be performed by any unit that is not within Engagement Range of any enemy models, even if that unit is being affected by a rule that would normally prevent it from performing actions. The action is completed at the end of your Movement phase if no enemy models are within 1" of that Hatchway. If there are any enemy models within 1" of that Hatchway, your opponent can attempt to prevent the action from being completed. If they do so, roll off with your opponent; each player adds the Strength characteristic of one of their models that is within 1" of that Hatchway to their respective scores. If you win, the action is completed; otherwise, the action fails. If completed, that Hatchway opens (if it was closed) or closes (if it was open).

If a Hatchway opens and units on opposite sides of that Hatchway now find themselves within Engagement Range of each other, then those units will be eligible to fight during the subsequent Fight phase, but neither of those units count as having made a charge move this turn.


Before opening the Hatchway, Model A and Model B are not within Engagement Range of one another.


After Model A opens the Hatchway, it is within Engagement Range of Model B as the shortest distance between them passes through an open Hatchway and they are within 2" of one another. In the following Fight phase, both units will be eligible to fight, but Model A’s unit will not count as having charged that turn.
Overwatch
Certain rules enable units to fire Overwatch at an enemy unit before it can charge. If an enemy unit declares a charge that targets one or more units from your army that have such a rule, each of those units can fire Overwatch before the charge roll is made. A unit cannot fire Overwatch if there are any enemy units within Engagement Range of it. Overwatch is resolved like a normal shooting attack (albeit one resolved in the Charge phase) and uses all the normal rules, except that an unmodified hit roll of 6 is always required for a successful hit roll, irrespective of the firing model’s Ballistic Skill or any hit roll modifiers. In addition, when a model fires Overwatch, it does so at the charging unit. Any rule that states the unit cannot be targeted unless it is the closest target (e.g. Look Out, Sir) does not apply when firing Overwatch.

  • Overwatch: Before charge roll made, all charge targets that can fire Overwatch can do so.
  • Can never fire Overwatch while enemy units are in Engagement Range.
  • When firing Overwatch, shoot with unit, but attacks only hit on unmodified 6s.
Set to Defend
One or more units from your army can start to perform this action at the end of the Move Units step of your Movement phase. The action is completed at the end of your turn. If completed, until the end of your opponents next turn, that unit is said to have Set to Defend. While a unit is Set to Defend, each time a model in that unit makes a melee attack, add 1 to that attack’s hit roll.

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

Fall Back
When a unit Falls Back, each model in that unit can move a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move (M) characteristic shown on its datasheet, and when doing so you can move it within Engagement Range of enemy models, but it cannot end its move within Engagement Range of any enemy models – if it cannot do this then it cannot Fall Back. A unit cannot declare a charge in the same turn that it Fell Back. A unit cannot shoot or attempt to manifest a psychic power in the same turn that it Fell Back unless it is TITANIC.

  • Fall Back: Models move up to M".
  • Units that Fall Back cannot charge this turn.
  • Units that Fall Back cannot shoot or manifest psychic powers this turn unless they are TITANIC.

The THE MASQUE OF SLAANESH keyword is used in the following Chaos Daemons datasheets:
