Datasheet-related Stratagems

CRUEL BLADESMEN2CP
Emperor’s Children – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Fulgrim's scions are renowned for their bladecraft, toying with their inferiors while preparing an exquisite, penetrating thrust.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when an EMPEROR’S CHILDREN unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a HERETIC ASTARTES model in that unit makes a melee attack, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of that attack by 1.
DAEMONFORGE2CP/1CP
Chaos Space Marines – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The Daemon Engines of the Chaos Space Marines are driven by a fathomless hatred born of the warp.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase or the Fight phase, when a TRAITORIS ASTARTES DAEMON ENGINE unit from your army is selected to shoot or fight. Until the end of the phase, improve the Weapon Skill and Ballistic Skill characteristics of models in that unit by 1. If that unit has the TITANIC keyword, this Stratagem costs 2CP; otherwise, it costs 1CP.
DEATH TO THE FALSE EMPEROR!1CP
Chaos Space Marines – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The seething hatred that the Heretic Astartes harbour for the Corpse Emperor and his weakling, thin-blooded Space Marines is a weapon unto itself.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a TRAITORIS ASTARTES unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a HERETIC ASTARTES model in that unit makes a melee attack against an ADEPTUS ASTARTES or SANCTIC ASTARTES unit, you can re-roll the hit roll.
REVERED HOSTS2CP
Word Bearers – Battle Tactic Stratagem

There is no greater way to venerate Chaos than to bond mortal with daemon. When battle is joined, the daemons within such warriors can burn through their soul, boosting their unholy power.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a WORD BEARERS DAEMON 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, you can re-roll the wound roll.
VENGEANCE FOR MONARCHIA1CP
Word Bearers – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Never will the outrage in beloved Monarchia be forgiven; the idols toppled there by Guillimans sons will be reforged from their bones.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a WORD BEARERS unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a HERETIC ASTARTES model in that unit makes a melee attack against an ULTRAMARINES unit, or against a unit that is a successor Chapter of the Ultramarines, you can re-roll the hit roll and you can re-roll wound roll.
METHODICAL ANNIHILATION1CP
Iron Warriors – Battle Tactic Stratagem

With unceasing firepower do the Iron Warriors prevail.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when an IRON WARRIORS unit from your army is selected to shoot. Until the end of the phase:
  • When resolving that unit’s attacks, you can re-roll one damage roll.
  • Each time a model in that unit makes an attack with a weapon that has the Blast ability, for the purposes of determining how many attacks are made with that weapon, double the number of models in the target unit.
  • If that unit is a VEHICLE unit, it can make attacks with Blast weapons against units within Engagement Range; however, if it does so, each time it makes an attack with a Blast weapon this phase, on an unmodified hit roll of 1 that unit suffers 1 mortal wound after all of its attacks have been resolved.
BITTER ENMITY1CP
Iron Warriors – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The Legion’s contempt for the Imperial Fists runs deep, unleashed in a surge of violent atrocity whenever they clash with Dorn’s sons.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when an IRON WARRIORS unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a HERETIC ASTARTES model in that unit makes a melee attack against an IMPERIAL FISTS unit, or against a unit that is a successor Chapter of the Imperial Fists, you can re-roll the hit roll and you can re-roll the wound roll.
WILD FURY1CP
World Eaters – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Sheer aggression can cut through even the thickest armour.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a WORLD EATERS unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes an attack, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of that attack by 1.
KILL! MAIM! BURN!1CP
World Eaters – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Kill! Maim! Burn! Kill! Maim! Burn! Kill! Maim! Burn!

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, before a WORLD EATERS unit from your army consolidates. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes a consolidation move, it can move an additional 3".
BLASPHEMOUS MACHINES2CP/1CP
Chaos Space Marines – Epic Deed Stratagem

The spirits of the most ancient or corrupted Chaos Space Marine war engines can be goaded to fury like wild beasts.

Use this Stratagem in your Command phase. Select one TRAITORIS ASTARTES MACHINE SPIRIT or TRAITORIS ASTARTES DAEMON ENGINE model from your army that has a Wounds characteristic of 10 or more. Until the start of your next Command phase, that model is considered to have its full wounds remaining for the purposes of determining what characteristics on its profile to use. If that model has the TITANIC keyword, this Stratagem costs 2CP; otherwise, it costs 1CP.
TAKEN ALIVE1CP
Creations of Bile – Epic Deed Stratagem

To be snatched away for experimentation by Fabius Bile and his followers is an altogether nightmarish fate.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when the enemy WARLORD is destroyed by a melee attack made by a CREATIONS OF BILE model from your army. Until the end of the battle:
  • Subtract 1 from the Leadership characteristic of every model in your opponent’s army.
  • Your opponent cannot use the Insane Bravery Stratagem.
  • Your opponent cannot use any rules to re-roll a Morale test.
FLAY THEM ALIVE1CP
Night Lords – Epic Deed Stratagem

Death does not always follow defeat. To the enemy’s most influential champions, the Night Lords reveal their most sadistic talents, the victims’ chilling screams broadcast to erode their allies’ mettle.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when the enemy WARLORD is destroyed by a melee attack made by a NIGHT LORDS HERETIC ASTARTES model from your army. Until the end of the battle, each time a Combat Attrition test is taken for an enemy unit, subtract 1 from that Combat Attrition test.
UNHOLY VIGOUR3CP/2CP
Iron Warriors – Epic Deed Stratagem

The corrupted machine spirits shackled to the will of the Iron Warriors refuse to yield.

Use this Stratagem in any phase, when an IRON WARRIORS MACHINE SPIRIT or IRON WARRIORS DAEMON ENGINE 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, subtract 1 from that attack’s wound roll. If that unit has the TITANIC keyword, this Stratagem costs 3CP; otherwise, it costs 2CP.
SCORN OF SORCERY1CP
World Eaters – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Like the god they worship, the warriors of the World Eaters despise psykers and their trickery, and the sheer force of their hatred can sever sorcerous powers.

Use this Stratagem in your opponent’s Psychic phase, after a Psychic test is passed for an enemy PSYKER unit and after any Deny the Witch attempt is made (if any). If that enemy PSYKER unit is within 24" of any WORLD EATERS units from your army, roll one D6: on a 4+, that psychic power is denied.
BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!2CP
World Eaters – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

When blood rains, the warriors of the World Eaters are fearless.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when an enemy unit is destroyed by a melee attack made by a WORLD EATERS model from your army. Until the end of the turn, each time a Morale test is taken for a WORLD EATERS unit from your army, it is automatically passed.
RAID SUPPLY LINES2CP
Red Corsairs – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Daring pre-emptive strikes against the enemy’s supply lines and rearguard ensure that their reinforcements are either diverted or delayed by logistical anarchy.

Use this Stratagem at the start of the Reinforcements step of your opponent’s Movement phase, if a RED CORSAIRS WARLORD from your army is on the battlefield. If it is the first or the second battle round, you can select one of your opponent’s Strategic Reserves or Reinforcements units. That unit cannot arrive on the battlefield this phase for any reason, even if it has another rule that states it always arrives on the battlefield during a specific battle round (e.g. Drop Pod Assault). You can only use this Stratagem once.
UNRELENTING ONSLAUGHT2CP
Black Legion – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The Black Legion let nothing stand in their way.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when you select a BLACK LEGION unit from your army to move. Until the start your next Movement phase:
  • That unit can ignore any or all modifiers to its Move characteristic, Advance rolls and charge rolls.
  • That unit is eligible to shoot and declare a charge, even if it Falls Back this turn.
VEILED AGENDA1CP
Alpha Legion – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The ploys and machinations of the Alpha Legion are ineffable to outsiders, the heretics' foes kept guessing or else deliberately fed contradictory disinformation.

Use this Stratagem after selecting secondary objectives or Agendas, if your army contains any units with the ALPHA LEGION keyword. Do not reveal one of your selections to your opponent. The first time you score victory points or experience points for that secondary objective or Agenda, reveal it to your opponent. Note that you must still make a record of your selection. We recommend writing this down and concealing it until revealed. You can only use this Stratagem once.
SABOTAGED ARMOURY1-3CP
Alpha Legion – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Alpha Legion agents and saboteurs infiltrate enemy targets long before the foe join the battle.

Use this Stratagem in any phase, when an enemy VEHICLE model is destroyed. If there are any ALPHA LEGION units from your army on the battlefield, your opponent does not roll to see if that model explodes: it does so automatically (if that model is affected by a rule that says it never explodes, ignore both that rule and this Stratagem and roll to see if it explodes as normal). If that model has a Wounds characteristic of 9 or less, this Stratagem costs 1CP; if that model has a Wounds characteristic of 10-19, this Stratagem costs 2CP; otherwise, it costs 3CP.
DEADLY AMBUSH2CP
Alpha Legion – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The Hydra knows all. Accessing scan-feeds from hidden Legion ships, interpreting the whispers of warp gheists or acting on data from embedded traitors, few esoteric incursions are unexpected by the Alpha Legion.

Use this Stratagem at the end of the Reinforcements step of your opponent’s Movement phase. Select one enemy unit that was set up on the battlefield as Reinforcements this phase. Until the end of your next turn, each time an ALPHA LEGION model from your army makes an attack against that unit, add 1 to that attack’s hit roll.
UNDERHAND SCHEMING1CP
Night Lords – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The honourable fight is a laughable concept to the Night Lords, who employ darting strikes, feigned retreats and all manner of dirty tactics to win the battle.

Use this Stratagem at the start of your Charge phase. Select one NIGHT LORDS unit from your army. Until the end of the phase, that unit is eligible to declare a charge in a turn in which it Fell Back.
VOX SCREAM2CP
Night Lords – Wargear Stratagem

Hideous screams of an aggressive techno-virus infiltrate the communication systems of the target, temporarily rendering it incapable of command.

Use this Stratagem at the end of your Movement phase. Select one enemy unit within 12" of a NIGHT LORDS unit from your army. Until the start of your next Movement phase, that unit loses all of its aura abilities. You can only use this Stratagem once.
HEXAGRAMMATIC WARD1CP
Word Bearers – Wargear Stratagem

Diabolical wards of protection can turn aside the enemy’s blows.

Use this Stratagem in any phase, when an attack is allocated to a WORD BEARERS model from your army. The Damage characteristic of that attack is changed to 0. You can only use this Stratagem once, unless you are playing a Strike Force or Onslaught battle (in which cases, you can use this Stratagem twice).
INFERNAL ENGINE2CP/1CP
Chaos Space Marines – Wargear Stratagem

The furnace at the heart of the Daemon Engine burns to incandescent levels as it channels the energies of the warp into its metal frame, daemon flesh and cursed iron flowing like filthy wax as ragged wounds reknit.

Use this Stratagem in your opponent’s Shooting phase or the Fight phase, when a TRAITORIS ASTARTES DAEMON ENGINE model from your army is selected as the target of an attack. Until the end of the phase, each time an attack is allocated to that model, subtract 1 from the Damage characteristic of that attack (to a minimum of 1). If that model has the TITANIC keyword, this Stratagem costs 2CP; otherwise, it costs 1CP.
1CP

INFERNAL ENGINES

Chaos Space Marines Stratagem

When they catch the scent of their foe, Daemon Engines push their piston-driven limbs to the limit in order to close with their prey.

Use this Stratagem at the start of your Charge phase. Pick a SOULFORGED PACK DAEMON ENGINE from your army. That model can charge in this phase even if it Advanced earlier in the turn.
1CP

DAEMONFORGE OVERDRIVE

Chaos Space Marines Stratagem

By channelling the energies of the warp into its metal frame, even a badly damaged Daemon Engine can still be a significant threat.

Use this Stratagem at the start of the Fight phase. Pick a SOULFORGED PACK DAEMON ENGINE from your army. Double the number of wounds that model has remaining for the purposes of determining what characteristics to use on its damage table until the end of the phase, or until this model is reduced to 0 wounds, whichever occurs first.
1CP

SOULFORGED PACK

Specialist Detachment Stratagem

Warpsmiths and Lords Discordant often gather their deranged creations together into packs before sending them forth to strike the enemy lines like a thunderbolt.

Use this Stratagem when choosing your army. Pick a Chaos Space Marine Detachment from your army to be a Soulforged Pack Specialist Detachment. WARPSMITH and DAEMON ENGINE units in that Detachment gain the SOULFORGED PACK keyword.
1CP

VESSELS FOR THE NEVERBORN

Chaos Space Marines Stratagem

The proximity of a Master of Possession allows Daemon and mortal to bond more closely, allowing even greater power to be unleashed.

Use this Stratagem at the start of the Fight phase. Pick a DAEMONKIN RITUALISTS DAEMON unit from your army that is within 6" of a friendly DAEMONKIN RITUALISTS MASTER OF POSSESSION. Add 1 to the Strength and Attacks characteristics of models in the unit you picked until the end of the phase.
Blast Weapons
Some weapons have ‘Blast’ listed in their profile’s abilities. These are referred to as Blast weapons. In addition to the normal rules, the following rules apply to Blast weapons:
  1. If a Blast weapon targets a unit that has between 6 and 10 models, it always makes a minimum of 3 attacks. So if, when determining how many attacks are made with that weapon, the dice rolled results in less than 3 attacks being made, make 3 attacks instead. For example, if a Grenade D6 weapon with the Blast rule targets a unit that has 6 or more models, and you roll a 2 to determine how many attacks are made, that roll is counted as being a 3 and that weapon makes three attacks against that unit.
  2. When a Blast weapon targets a unit that has 11 or more models, do not roll dice to randomly determine how many attacks are made – instead, make the maximum possible number of attacks. For example, if a Grenade D6 weapon with the Blast rule targets a unit that has 11 or more models, that weapon makes six attacks against that unit.
Blast weapons can never be used to make attacks against a unit that is within Engagement Range of the firing model’s unit, even if the weapon has the Pistol type or if the firing model is a VEHICLE or a MONSTER – firing high-explosives at point-blank range is simply unwise.

  • Blast Weapons: Minimum three attacks against units with 6+ models. Always make maximum number of attacks against units with 11+ models.
  • Can never be used to attack units within the firing unit’s Engagement Range.
HEAVY
Heavy weapons are amongst the biggest guns on the battlefield, but they require bracing to fire at full effect and are unwieldy to bring to bear at close quarters.
When an INFANTRY model shoots a Heavy weapon, subtract 1 from the hit rolls when resolving that weapon’s attacks if the firing model’s unit has moved for any reason this turn (e.g. it made a Normal Move this turn).

  • Subtract 1 from hit rolls if firing model is INFANTRY and its unit has moved this turn.
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.
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.
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.
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.

The CELESTIAN SACRESANTS keyword is used in the following Adepta Sororitas datasheets:

The NEMESIS DREADKNIGHT keyword is used in the following Grey Knights datasheets:

Heavy Support
Armour of Contempt
Each time an attack is allocated to an ASTRA MILITARUM VEHICLE, ADEPTUS ASTARTES, SANCTIC ASTARTES, HERETIC ASTARTES or ADEPTA SORORITAS model, worsen the Armour Penetration characteristic of that attack by 1.
This rule does not apply to any of the following:
  • Models equipped with a storm shield, a relic shield or a combat shield (or a Relic that replaces one of these shields).
  • Models with either the Sacresant Shield or Force Shielding ability (CELESTIAN SACRESANT and NEMESIS DREADKNIGHT units).
  • Models that are under the effects of any other rule that worsens or reduces the Armour Penetration characteristic of an attack.

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

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.
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.
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.
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.
Morale Tests
To take a Morale test, roll one D6 and add the number of models from the unit that have been destroyed this turn. If the result is equal to or less than the highest Leadership (Ld) characteristic in the unit, the Morale test is passed and nothing else happens. An unmodified roll of 1 also always results in a passed Morale test, irrespective of the total result. In any other case, the Morale test is failed, one model flees that unit, and you must then take Combat Attrition tests for the remaining models in the unit. You decide which model from your unit flees – that model is removed from play and counts as having been destroyed, but it never triggers any rules that are used when a model is destroyed.

  • Morale test = D6 + number of models destroyed this turn.
  • Unmodified roll of 1 always a success (no models flee).
  • If Morale test exceeds unit’s Ld, one model flees and other models must take Combat Attrition tests.
The Warlord
While mustering your army, you can nominate one model (except a model with the FORTIFICATION keyword) to be your Warlord. That model gains the WARLORD keyword. If this model is a CHARACTER, you can also assign a Warlord Trait to it. Note, that more than one model in your army can have a Warlord Trait (e.g. by using Stratagems), but they are only considered your Warlord for the purpose of that trait.
INSANE BRAVERY2CP
Core Stratagem
Use this Stratagem before you take a Morale test for a unit in your army. That test is automatically passed (do not roll any dice). You can only use this Stratagem once per battle.
Combat Attrition Tests
If a unit fails a Morale test, then after the first model has fled the unit, you must take Combat Attrition tests. To do so, roll one D6 for each remaining model in that unit, subtracting 1 from the result if the unit is below Half-strength; for each result of 1, one additional model flees that unit. You decide which models from your unit flee – those models are removed from play and count as having been destroyed, but they never trigger any rules that are used when a model is destroyed.

  • Combat Attrition tests: Roll one D6 for each remaining model in unit; for each 1, one additional model flees.
  • Subtract 1 from Combat Attrition tests if unit is below Half-strength.
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.
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.
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.
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).

Let the Galaxy Burn

Drawing upon countless years of festering bitterness and hate, Chaos Space Marines attack with a ferocity that is terrible to behold. Whether annihilating the foe at range or butchering them without mercy at close quarters, there is no aspect of death unknown to these traitors. Unencumbered by stultifying doctrines, they are capable of adapting their murderous priorities with horrifying ease, and there are no limits to the levels of devastation they will unleash to vent their anger.

If every unit from your army has the TRAITORIS ASTARTES keyword (excluding models with the AGENT OF CHAOS or UNALIGNED keyword) and every unit from your army (excluding ABADDON THE DESPOILER) is from the same Legion, this unit gains the following rules:
  • Each time a model in this unit shoots with a flame weapon, when determining how many attacks are made with that weapon this phase, add 2 to the result (e.g. a model shooting with a flamer makes D6+2 attacks).
  • This unit gains a bonus (see below) depending on which wanton act it is engaged in, as follows:
    • During the first battle round, your army (and every unit from it) is engaged in Wanton Destruction.
    • During the second battle round, your army (and every unit from it) is engaged in Wanton Massacre.
    • At the start of the third battle round, select either Wanton Massacre or Wanton Slaughter; until the end of that battle round, your army (and every unit from it) is engaged in the wanton act you selected.
    • During the fourth and subsequent battle rounds, your army (and every unit from it) is engaged in Wanton Slaughter.
Daemon Engine
