Datasheet-related Stratagems

Iron Warriors – Battle Tactic Stratagem

No armour is safe from the guns of the IV Legion.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase or the Fight phase, when you choose an IRON WARRIORS unit from your army (excluding CHAOS CULTISTS) to shoot or fight with. Select one enemy VEHICLE unit. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made by a model in that IRON WARRIORS unit against the selected unit, you can re-roll the wound roll.
Emperor’s Children – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Fulgrim’s scions are renowned for their blade-craft.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when an EMPEROR’S CHILDREN unit from your army that is not a VEHICLE or CHAOS CULTIST is chosen to fight with. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made with a melee weapon by a model in that unit, on an unmodified wound roll of 6 that weapon has an Armour Penetration characteristic of -3 for that attack.
Emperor’s Children – Requisition Stratagem

Concoctions of hideous euphoria empower the minds of these sensationalist warriors.

Use this Stratagem before the battle. Select one EMPEROR’S CHILDREN unit from your army that is not a VEHICLE or CHAOS CULTIST, then select one of the following effects to apply to models in that unit until the end of the battle:
  • +1 to Attacks characteristic
  • +1 to Strength characteristic
  • +2" to Move characteristic
  • +1 to Toughness characteristic
You can only use this Stratagem once per battle.
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:

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.
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:

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.

The CHAOS CULTISTS keyword is used in the following Chaos Space Marines datasheets:

Hateful Assault

The Heretic Astartes are corrupted superhumans with ten thousand years of burning hatred. Few can withstand their hateful assault.

If this unit makes a charge move, is charged or performs a Heroic Intervention, add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of models in this unit until the end of the turn.
