ABILITIES
Airborne: You cannot declare a charge with this model, and it can only be chosen as a target of a charge if the unit making the charge can FLY. You can only fight with this model if it is within Engagement Range of any enemy units that can FLY, and this model can only make melee attacks against units that can FLY. Enemy units can only make melee attacks against this model if they can FLY.
Supersonic: When this model moves in your Movement phase, first pivot it on the spot up to 90° (this does not contribute to how far the model moves), then move the model straight forwards. It cannot pivot again after the initial pivot. When this model Advances, add 20" to its Move characteristic until the end of the Movement phase instead of making an Advance roll.
Hard to Hit: Each time a ranged attack is made against this model, subtract 1 from that attack’s hit roll.
Night Shield: This model has a 5+ invulnerable save against ranged attacks.
Explodes: When this model is destroyed, roll one D6 before removing it from play. On a 6 it explodes, and each unit within 6" suffers D3 mortal wounds.

Datasheet-related Stratagems

DANCE OF DEATH1CP
Cult of Strife – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Borrowing from the performances of their Harlequin kindred, the Wyches of the Cult of Strife add their own unique flourishes to the dance of death, leaping and pirouetting past mesmerised enemies in preparation for the inevitable crescendo of violence.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when a CULT OF STRIFE unit in your army is selected to move, or in your Charge phase, when a CULT OF STRIFE unit in your army is selected to charge. Until the end of the phase, each time that unit makes a Normal Move, Advances, Falls Back or it makes a charge move, until that move is finished, models in that unit can move horizontally through models and terrain features (they cannot finish a move on top of another model, or its base).
CRUEL DECEPTION1CP/2CP
Drukhari – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Commorrite society is founded upon opportunistic deception.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when a DRUKHARI unit from your army Falls Back. You can select for this unit to be eligible to shoot this turn or eligible to declare a charge this turn, or both. If you select both, this Stratagem costs 2CP; otherwise, it costs 1CP.
THE GREAT ENEMY1CP
Drukhari – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The Chaos God Slaanesh is reviled by the Aeldari, who hate and despise his followers with a ferocious loathing.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a DRUKHARI 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 a SLAANESH unit, you can re-roll the hit roll and you can re-roll wound roll.
LIGHTNING-FAST REACTIONS1CP
Drukhari – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The hyper-fast reflexes of the Drukhari allow them to duck and weave to avoid all but the swiftest enemy strikes.

Use this Stratagem in your opponents Shooting phase or the Fight phase, when a DRUKHARI INFANTRY, DRUKHARI VEHICLE or DRUKHARI BIKER unit from your army (excluding URIEN RAKARTH or a <HAEMONCULUS COVEN> unit) 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 hit roll.
HUNT FROM THE SHADOWS1CP
Drukhari – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The denizens of Commorragh use the shadows to their advantage.

Use this Stratagem in your opponent’s Shooting phase, when a DRUKHARI unit from your army that has the benefits of Light Cover is selected as the target of a ranged attack. Until the end of that phase, add an additional 1 to that unit’s saving throws (excluding invulnerable saving throws).
PRAY THEY DON’T TAKE YOU ALIVE1CP
Drukhari – Epic Deed Stratagem

Few armies are able to maintain their mettle when the sounds of their leader’s tortured screams fill the air.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when an enemy WARLORD unit is destroyed by a melee attack made by a DRUKHARI unit 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.
PICK THEM APART2CP
Cult of Strife – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

In the swirl of battle, the Cult of Strife change their partners in combat frequently, somersaulting from one violent engagement only to engage in another as they see fit.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when a CULT OF STRIFE unit from your army Falls Back. That unit is eligible to shoot and/or charge this turn even though it Fell Back.
AGENTS OF VECT0CP
Kabal of the Black Heart – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The Supreme Overlord of Commorragh develops countermeasures for every conceivable course of events.

Use this Stratagem after your opponent uses a Stratagem (excluding Command Re-roll). Until the end of the battle, the CP cost your opponent must pay to use that Stratagem again is increased by 1. This Stratagem can only be used once.
EVISCERATING FLY-BY1CP/2CP
Drukhari – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The airborne combatants of a Wych Cult have no need to slow down in order to carry out their slaughter.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when you select a <WYCH CULT> unit that can FLY to make a Normal Move or Advance. After this unit has moved, select one enemy unit this unit moved across and roll one D6 for each model in this unit, adding 1 to the result if the enemy unit is an INFANTRY unit: for each result of 5+, that enemy unit suffers 1 mortal wound. If the selected <WYCH CULT> unit contains 5 or fewer models, this Stratagem costs 1CP; otherwise, it costs 2CP.
SCREAMING JETS1CP
Drukhari – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Just as terrifying as a sudden emergence from the webway is the meteoric descent of a Drukhari raiding craft behind enemy lines.

Use this Stratagem before the battle when declaring reserves and transports (if you are playing a mission without this step, use this Stratagem during deployment instead). You can set up one DRUKHARI VEHICLE unit from your army in the skies instead of placing it on the battlefield.

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. You can only use this Stratagem once.
POTENT METALLOTOXINS2CP
Drukhari – Wargear Stratagem

A few rare poisons contain virulent acidic compounds, ferrogangrenous venoms or even inorganic nanophages, which swiftly break down the most formidable of armour plating. When showered with these potent shards, enemy crews find their vehicles dissolving around them, or even swelling with infection and crushing them inside.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase or the Fight phase, when you select a DRUKHARI unit from your army to shoot or fight. Until the end of the phase, each time an attack is made with a poisoned weapon (excluding Relics) by that unit, that ability does not exclude VEHICLE units (though it does still exclude TITANIC units).
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.
Poisoned Weapon

The Drukhari frequently use virulent poisons to kill their prey in excruciating ways.

Many Drukhari weapons have the Poisoned Weapon ability. Such a weapon will have an ability that reads ‘Poisoned Weapon’ and then a value, such as (4+) or (2+). Each time an attack is made with a poisoned weapon against a unit (excluding VEHICLE or TITANIC units), an unmodified wound roll of this value is always successful.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Light Cover
When an attack made with a ranged weapon wounds a model that is receiving the benefits of cover from this terrain feature, add 1 to the saving throw made against that attack (invulnerable saving throws are not affected).

  • +1 to saving throws against ranged weapons.
  • Invulnerable saving throws unaffected.
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.
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.
COMMAND RE-ROLL1CP
Core Stratagem
Use this Stratagem after you have made a hit roll, a wound roll, a damage roll, a saving throw, an Advance roll, a charge roll, a Psychic test, a Deny the Witch test or you have rolled the dice to determine the number of attacks made by a weapon. Re-roll that roll, test or saving throw.
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.
Flying
If a unit’s datasheet has the FLY keyword, then when it makes a Normal Move, an Advance or it Falls Back, its models can be moved across other models (and their bases) as if they were not there, and they can be moved within Engagement Range of enemy models. In addition, any vertical distance up and/or down that they make as part of that move is ignored. However, these models cannot finish their move either on top of another model (or its base) or within Engagement Range of any enemy models.

  • FLY models can move over other models when they make a Normal Move, an Advance or when they Fall Back.
  • FLY models ignore vertical distances when they make a Normal Move, an Advance or when they Fall Back.

RAPID FIRE
Rapid fire weapons are versatile armaments capable of aimed single shots at long range or controlled bursts of fire at close quarters.
When a model shoots a Rapid Fire weapon, double the number of attacks it makes if its target is within half the weapon’s range.

  • Double number of attacks made if target is within half range.
