Datasheet-related Stratagems

INVIGORATED BY EVISCERATION1CP
Cult of Strife – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The Cult of Strife welcome the attentions of enemy combatants, and by feeding upon the death throes of their victims they are never short of the vigour required to remain front and centre on the stage of battle.

Use this Stratagem after an enemy unit is destroyed as a result of a melee attack made by a model in a CULT OF STRIFE INFANTRY or CULT OF STRIFE BIKER unit from your army. Until the start of your next turn, models in that unit have a 4+ invulnerable save.
THE BLADE WELL PLACED2CP
Cult of Strife – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The Cult of Strife teaches that no armour is inviolate. So it is that these fighters strike at visors, eyes and armour joins with hard-won skill.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a CULT OF STRIFE INFANTRY unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a melee attack is made by a model in that unit, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of that attack by 1.
NO METHOD OF DEATH BEYOND OUR GRASP2CP
Cult of Strife – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The Cult of Strife are well versed in every conceivable method of murder, and after completing one act of slaughter they will often showcase another from their repertoire.

Use this Stratagem at the end of your Shooting phase or the Fight phase. Select one CULT OF STRIFE WYCHES unit from your army. If it is the Shooting phase, that unit can shoot again. If it is the Fight phase, and that unit is within Engagement Range of any enemy units, that unit can fight again. You can only use this Stratagem once per battle round.
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.
HEKATRIX OF THE CRUCIBAEL1CP
Cult of Strife – Requisition Stratagem

After every ten thousand performances, the Crucibael plays host to a bloody competition in which Hekatrixes of the Cult of Strife may fight one another to the death. The sole survivor is bestowed an exquisite artefact to denote their status as champion.

Use this Stratagem before the battle. Select one CULT OF STRIFE Hekatrix model from your army. That model can have one of the following Relics, even though they are not a CHARACTER: Morvaine’s Agoniser; Dark Lotus Toxin; Garland of Spite. Each Relic in your army must be unique, and you cannot use this Stratagem to give a model two Relics. You can only use this Stratagem once.
FLAWLESS APPROACH1CP
Cult of Strife – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The Cult of Strife are taught to give no respite as they close for the kill, darting forward in fleeting bounds that afford no time for an enemy to draw their weapons or gather their wits.

Use this Stratagem in your Charge phase, when a CULT OF STRIFE INFANTRY unit from your army is selected to charge. Until the end of the turn:
  • Enemy units cannot fire Overwatch at that unit.
  • Enemy units selected as the target of that unit’s charge cannot Hold Steady or Set to Defend as a result of that unit’s charge.
ATHLETIC AERIALISTS1CP
Cult of the Red Grief – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Wyches of the Red Grief set foot on solid ground only for as long as it takes to butcher the enemy.

Use this Stratagem after a CULT OF THE RED GRIEF INFANTRY unit has resolved its close combat attacks, but before it makes a consolidation move. Instead of consolidating as normal, if every model from this unit is within 6" of a friendly CULT OF THE RED GRIEF TRANSPORT unit, they can embark in that TRANSPORT as if it were the Movement phase even if this unit has disembarked this turn, provided it has enough transport capacity remaining to embark the whole unit.
WEBWAY PORTAL1CP/3CP
Drukhari – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

By hurling rune-graven orbs into the air, the Drukhari can tear a route into the webway through which more of their kin can pour.

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). If you spend 1CP, you can set up one DRUKHARI INFANTRY, BIKER or BEAST unit from your army in the webway instead of placing it on the battlefield. If you spend 3CPs, you can place two DRUKHARI INFANTRY, BIKER or BEAST units in the webway instead.

In the Reinforcements step of one of your Movement phases, you can set up any units in the webway anywhere on the battlefield that is more than 9" away from any enemy models. You can only use this Stratagem once.
NEVER STATIONARY2CP
Drukhari – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The Drukhari are masters at using hit-and-run tactics, engaging a target with a flurry of shots before quickly manoeuvring into cover or out of sight.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase after making attacks with a DRUKHARI unit (excluding AIRCRAFT units) from your army. That unit can immediately make a Normal Move of up to 7". Until the end of the turn, that unit is not eligible to declare a charge.
PREY ON THE WEAK1CP
Drukhari – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The scent of a foe in pain draws Drukhari to it like hungry predators to an injured beast, their senses sharpening at its tang.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase or the Fight phase, when a DRUKHARI CORE unit from your army is selected to shoot or fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in this unit makes an attack:
  • If that attack targets a unit that was below its starting strength when this unit was selected to shoot or fight, re-roll a hit roll of 1.
  • If that attack targets a unit that was below Half-strength when this unit was selected to shoot or fight, you can re-roll the hit roll.
VENOMOUS SHARDBOMBS1CP
Cult of the Cursed Blade – Wargear Stratagem

After luring their enemies towards them, the Cult of the Cursed Blade cast a volley of translucent charges into their midst that riddle the attackers with splinters of venomous shrapnel.

Use this Stratagem after the enemy has declared a charge against a CULT OF THE CURSED BLADE WYCHES unit from your army. That unit can fire Overwatch before the charge roll is made. When it does so, up to five models in that unit that are equipped with plasma grenades can make attacks with them, and until the end of the phase, plasma grenades this unit is equipped with gain the Poisoned Weapon (2+) ability.
HAYWIRE GRENADE1CP
Drukhari – Wargear Stratagem

Haywire grenades send out a powerful electromagnetic pulse to debilitate and damage enemy vehicles.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a DRUKHARI HAYWIRE GRENADE unit from your army is selected to shoot. Select one model in that unit; that model can only make one attack this phase, and must target an enemy VEHICLE unit within 6" of it, but if a hit is scored, that VEHICLE unit suffers D3 mortal wounds and the attack sequence ends.
HYPERSTIMM BACKLASH2CP
Drukhari – Wargear Stratagem

Heedless of the brutal effects of overdosing, members of a Wych Cult may take a massive dose of combat drugs to further enhance their combat prowess.

Use this Stratagem in your Command phase. Select one unit with the Combat Drugs ability from your army. Until your next Command phase, each effect of the Combat Drugs ability on that unit is doubled (e.g. if the unit is affected by Painbringer, add 2 to the Toughness characteristic of models affected by that combat drug instead of 1). A model with the Phial Bouquet Relic cannot be selected for this Stratagem.

Blast pistol used in the following datasheets:

Fast Attack
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.
ASSAULT
Assault weapons fire so rapidly or indiscriminately that they can be shot from the hip as warriors dash forwards into combat.
If a unit includes any models equipped with Assault weapons, that unit is still eligible to shoot with in your Shooting phase even if it has Advanced this turn, but you can only resolve attacks using those Assault weapons when you select that unit to shoot with. If a model shoots an Assault weapon in the same turn in which its unit has Advanced, subtract 1 from hit rolls when resolving that weapon’s attacks.

  • Can be shot even if firing model’s unit Advanced.
  • Subtract 1 from hit rolls if the firing model’s unit Advanced.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Power From Pain

As the Drukhari feed on the souls of the slain, they become imbued with supernatural might, eventually turning into killing machines.

This ability only applies if every unit in your army is a DRUKHARI or UNALIGNED unit. At the start of each battle round, this ability gains additional effects. These effects are cumulative.
BATTLE ROUNDADDITIONAL EFFECT
1+Inured to Suffering: Models in this unit have a 6+ invulnerable save
2+Eager to Flay: This unit is eligible to declare a charge in a turn in which they Advanced
3+Flensing Fury: Each time a model in this unit makes a melee attack, add 1 to that attack’s hit roll. If this unit has the VEHICLE or MONSTER keyword, it does not suffer the penalty incurred to its hit rolls for firing Heavy weapons at enemy units that are within Engagement Range of it. 
4+Mantle of Agony: Models in this unit have a 5+ invulnerable save
5+Emboldened by Bloodshed: Each time a Morale test is taken for this unit, it is automatically passed. If this unit's characteristics can change as it suffers damage, this unit is considered to have double the number of wounds remaining for the purposes of determining what those characteristics are.

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.

Onslaught201-3002001-300018

  • Starting number of Command points varies with battle size.
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.
Performing a Heroic Intervention
When a unit performs a Heroic Intervention, you can move each model in that unit up to 3" – this is a Heroic Intervention move. Each model in the unit must finish its Heroic Intervention move closer to the closest enemy model. Remember that a unit must finish any type of move in unit coherency.

  • Heroic Intervention: Move up to 3".
  • Must end closer to the closest enemy model.
Combat Drugs

Exotic chemical stimulants are widely used to heighten combat performance, despite the risk of a deadly overdose.

Units with this ability gain additional abilities depending on which combat drugs they are using during this battle. Before the battle, determine what additional abilities are granted to each unit from your army with the Combat Drugs ability. You can select one of the abilities from the table below for that unit. Alternatively, you can randomly determine two abilities from the table for units with the Combat Drugs ability by rolling two D6 and looking up the result (if a double is rolled, roll both dice again until two different results are rolled). Combat Drug effects must be noted on your army roster. If you wish to randomly determine a units Combat Drugs abilities, simply write ‘Random’ on your roster.

Fast Attack
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.
Defensible (Set to Defend/Hold Steady)
If every model in an INFANTRY unit is on or in an Area Terrain feature with this trait, then it can either Hold Steady or it can Set to Defend (see below) when an enemy unit declares a charge against it.

If every model in an INFANTRY unit is within 3" of an Obstacle terrain feature with this trait, then it can either Hold Steady or it can Set to Defend (see below) when an enemy unit declares a charge against it if, were you to draw a straight line, 1mm in thickness, between the closest parts of the bases (or hulls) of the two closest models in the two units, that line would pass over or through that terrain feature.

A unit cannot Hold Steady or Set to Defend while it is within Engagement Range of any enemy units.

If a unit Holds Steady, any Overwatch attacks made by that unit this phase will score hits on rolls of 5+. If a unit Sets to Defend, it cannot fire Overwatch this phase, but you add 1 to hit rolls when resolving attacks made with melee weapons by models in that unit until the end of the next Fight phase.

  • INFANTRY units can Hold Steady or Set to Defend (if no enemy within Engagement Range}.
  • Hold Steady: Overwatch attacks hit on 5+.
  • Set to Defend: Cannot fire Overwatch but add 1 to hit rolls in next Fight phase.

The CULT OF THE RED GRIEF and INFANTRY keywords are used in the following Drukhari datasheets:

Troops
Fast Attack
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.

The CULT OF THE RED GRIEF and TRANSPORT keywords are used in the following Drukhari datasheets:

Dedicated Transport
Heavy Support
Transport Capacity
All TRANSPORT models have a transport capacity listed on their datasheet. This determines how many friendly models, and of what type, can embark within them. A model’s transport capacity can never be exceeded.

Units can start the battle embarked within a TRANSPORT instead of being set up separately – declare what units are embarked within a TRANSPORT model before you set it up.

  • Transport capacity: Maximum number of models that can embark within the Transport.
  • Units can start the battle embarked in a TRANSPORT.

This datasheet has Troops Battlefield Role. Full list of Drukhari units sharing same Battlefield Role follows:

Plasma grenades used in the following datasheets:

Fast Attack
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.
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.
Blade Artists

Every denizen of Commorragh learns from a young age the value of blades, and all are adept in their usage, whether those wielded by their cruel hands or as part of their razor-edged armour.

Each time a model in this unit makes an attack with a melee weapon, on an unmodified wound roll of 6, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of that attack by 1.

The CORE keyword is used in the following Drukhari datasheets:

Heavy Support

The DRUKHARI and CORE keywords are used in the following Drukhari datasheets:

Heavy Support
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.

  • Roll-off: Both players roll a D6 – highest wins.
  • Roll again if a tie.
