Datasheet-related Stratagems

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".
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.
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.
VETERANS OF THE LONG WAR2CP
Chaos Space Marines – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Veterans of centuries or millennia, the Long War’s most embittered warriors have learnt how best to focus their need for vengeance.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase or the Fight phase, when a TRAITORIS ASTARTES INFANTRY or TRAITORIS ASTARTES BIKER unit from your army is selected to shoot or fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes an attack, add 1 to that attack’s wound roll.
SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!1CP
World Eaters – Epic Deed Stratagem

Offer up the skulls of mighty champions to Khorne!

Use this Stratagem when an enemy CHARACTER model is destroyed by a melee attack made by a WORLD EATERS CHARACTER model from your army. Gain D3 Command points (the limit of gaining or refunding 1CP per battle round does not apply to any Command points gained via this Stratagem).
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.
APOPLECTIC FRENZY1CP
World Eaters – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Howling in rage, World Eaters surge towards the foe.

Use this Stratagem at the start of the first battle round. Select one WORLD EATERS INFANTRY unit from your army. That unit can make a Normal Move of up to 9". This unit must end that move more than 9" away from any enemy models. If both players have units that can do this, the player who is taking the first turn moves their units first.
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.
UNENDING DESTRUCTION2CP
Chaos Space Marines – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Chaos Space Marines are not easily diverted from their obsessive need to kill, and can accomplish their battlefield goals without having to relent in their acts of destruction.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase. Select one TRAITORIS ASTARTES INFANTRY unit from your army (excluding CULTISTS units) that is performing an action. That unit can shoot this phase without that action failing.
RELENTLESS DEVASTATION1CP
Chaos Space Marines – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The wrath of Chaos Space Marines is inescapable.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when a TRAITORIS ASTARTES INFANTRY unit (excluding CULTISTS units) from your army makes a Normal Move or Advances. Until the end of your Shooting phase, provided that unit does not move again, it is considered to have Remained Stationary.
1CP

DEVASTATION BATTERY

Specialist Detachment Stratagem

When enemy fortifications or armoured forces must be brought low, many Chaos Lords will gather their most destructive followers together to focus their tremendous firepower.

Use this Stratagem when choosing your army. Pick a Chaos Space Marine Detachment from your army to be a Devastation Battery Specialist Detachment. CHAOS LORDS, WARPSMITHS, HAVOCS and OBLITERATORS in that Detachment gain the DEVASTATION BATTERY keyword.
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.
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 AGENT OF CHAOS keyword is used in the following Chaos Space Marines datasheets:


- If this model is your WARLORD it gains the AGENT OF CHAOS keyword.

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

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.

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.
Saving Throw
The player commanding the target unit then makes one saving throw by rolling one D6 and modifying the roll by the Armour Penetration (AP) characteristic of the weapon that the attack was made with. For example, if the weapon has an AP of -1, then 1 is subtracted from the saving throw roll. If the result is equal to, or greater than, the Save (Sv) characteristic of the model the attack was allocated to, then the saving throw is successful and the attack sequence ends. If the result is less than the model’s Save characteristic, then the saving throw fails and the model suffers damage. An unmodified roll of 1 always fails.
Invulnerable Saves
Some models have an invulnerable save. Each time an attack is allocated to a model with an invulnerable save, you can choose to use either its normal Save (Sv) characteristic or its invulnerable save, but not both. If a model has more than one invulnerable save, it can only use one of them – choose which it will use. If you use a model’s invulnerable save, it is never modified by a weapon’s Armour Penetration value.

  • Invulnerable save: Saving throw that is never modified by attacking weapon’s AP.
  • A model with an invulnerable save can use it instead of its normal Sv.
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.
PISTOL
Due to their compact size, pistols can even be used in melee to shoot at point-blank range.
A model can make attacks with a Pistol even when its unit is within Engagement Range of enemy units, but it must target an enemy unit that is within Engagement Range of its own unit when it does so. In such circumstances, the model can target an enemy unit even if other friendly units are within Engagement Range of the same enemy unit.

When a model equipped with both a Pistol and another type of ranged weapon (e.g. a Pistol and a Rapid Fire weapon) shoots, it can either shoot with its Pistol(s) or with its other ranged weapons. Choose which it will fire (Pistols or non-Pistols) before selecting targets.

  • Can be shot even if firing model’s unit is within Engagement Range of enemy unit.
  • Cannot be shot alongside any other type of weapon.
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.

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

Heavy Support
GRENADE
Grenades are handheld explosive devices that a warrior throws at the enemy while their squad mates provide covering fire.
When a unit shoots, one model that is equipped with a Grenade in that unit can resolve attacks with it instead of shooting any other weapons.

  • Only one model can use a Grenade when its unit shoots.
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.
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.
Command Points
The starting number of CPs each player starts with for Battle-forging their army depends on the size of the battle you are playing. This is usually defined in the mission pack that is being played, but if one is not presented in the mission pack, use the following table. Note that the total Power Level is based on the combined power of all the models used in the battle (so the combined Power Level of both your and your opponent's armies). If you are using a game that uses points values, then the points limit is the maximum points limit per side.

COMMAND POINTS
BATTLE SIZETOTAL POWER LEVELPOINTS LIMITCOMMAND POINTS

  • Starting number of Command points varies with battle size.

The TRAITORIS ASTARTES and BIKER keywords are used in the following Chaos Space Marines datasheets:

Fast Attack
Remain Stationary
If a unit Remains Stationary, none of its models can be moved for the rest of the phase. Any units from your army that were on the battlefield and were not selected to move in the Move Units step of the Movement phase are assumed to have Remained Stationary that phase.

  • Remain Stationary: Models cannot move this phase.
