The Strands of Fate: In each of your turns, you can choose to re-roll a single failed hit or wound roll, or a single failed saving throw for Brother-Captain Stern. However, if you do so, your opponent can re-roll a single failed hit or wound roll, or a single failed saving throw for one of their models in their next turn.
Iron Halo: Brother-Captain Stern has a 4+ invulnerable save.
Psychic Locus: When a friendly GREY KNIGHTS unit within 6" of any BROTHER-CAPTAINS manifests the Smite power, double its range.
Zone of Banishment: When Brother-Captain Stern manifests the Smite psychic power, it has a range of 6" rather than 18". Additionally, the target unit suffers only 1 mortal wound rather than D3 (whether or not the result of the Psychic test is more than 10) – unless the target is a DAEMON, in which case it suffers 3 mortal wounds instead of D3 – and all DAEMON units within 6" of Brother-Captain Stern suffer 1 mortal wound.
PSYKER
PSYKER
Brother-Captain Stern can attempt to manifest two psychic powers in each friendly Psychic phase, and attempt to deny one psychic power in each enemy Psychic phase. He knows the Smite psychic power and one psychic power from the Sanctic discipline.

Datasheet-related Stratagems

1CP

FURY OF THE PROVEN

Grey Knights Stratagem

When the fighting is at its fiercest, Grey Knights Terminators fight with even greater fury.

Use this Stratagem in any phase. Select one GREY KNIGHTS TERMINATOR unit from your army. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made by a model in that unit, add 1 to the hit roll.
1CP

EMPYRIC SURGE

Grey Knights Stratagem

Arcane power swells within the sons of Titan.

Use this Stratagem in your Psychic phase, after a GREY KNIGHTS PSYKER unit from your army has manifested a psychic power. Until the end of that phase, when a psychic test is taken for a friendly GREY KNIGHTS PSYKER unit within 6" of that unit, add 1 to the total.
1/2CP

REDOUBTABLE DEFENCE

Grey Knights Stratagem

Terminators stand firm against torrents of enemy fire.

Use this Stratagem in your opponent’s Shooting phase, when a GREY KNIGHTS TERMINATOR unit from your army is chosen as the target for an attack. If that unit contains 5 models or fewer, this Stratagem costs 1 Command Point; otherwise, this Stratagem costs 2 Command Points. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made with a ranged weapon against that unit, subtract 1 from the Damage characteristic of that weapon for that attack (to a minimum of 1).
1CP

STEADY ADVANCE

Grey Knights Stratagem

A measured advance allows the Grey Knights to unleash a steady stream of bolter fire.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a GREY KNIGHTS INFANTRY unit from your army is chosen to shoot with. Until the end of that phase, for the purposes of the Bolter Discipline ability, that unit is treated as if it had remained stationary in your previous Movement phase.
1CP

ONLY IN DEATH DOES DUTY END

Grey Knights Stratagem

A Grey Knight knows that his service to Humanity will likely end in his bloody death. He knows too the importance of ensuring that his final moments cost the enemy dear.

Use this Stratagem when a GREY KNIGHTS CHARACTER (other than a BROTHERHOOD CHAMPION) is slain. Before removing it from the battlefield, that model can immediately either shoot as if it were his Shooting phase, or fight as if it were his Fight phase.
3CP

HONOUR THE CHAPTER

Grey Knights Stratagem

While the Sons of Titan fight, the Emperor’s legacy lives on.

Use this Stratagem at the end of any Fight phase. Select a GREY KNIGHTS INFANTRY unit – that unit can immediately fight for a second time.
1CP

TELEPORTARIUM

Grey Knights Stratagem

The Grey Knights watch from orbit for the perfect moment to strike. Their teleportarium chambers pierce the roiling warp to deliver battle-brothers deep into the heart of the enemy army.

Use this Stratagem during deployment. You can set up a friendly GREY KNIGHTS INFANTRY unit or GREY KNIGHTS DREADNOUGHT in a teleportarium chamber instead of placing it on the battlefield. At the end of any of your Movement phases this unit can teleport into battle – set it up anywhere on the battlefield that is more than 9" away from any enemy models.
1CP

MENTAL FOCUS

Grey Knights Stratagem

Such is the mental discipline of the Grey Knights that even the lowest of their rank can wield the energies of the warp as a weapon. In the midst of a clangorous firefight a battle-brother can shut out all external stimulus, ignoring pain and fear to focus his mind into a reaping blade for the Emperor. By attuning his mind with those of his fellow battle-brothers, a single Grey Knight can bolster his reserve of mental energy and bring his psychic might to bear repeatedly against the enemy or in aid of his allies.

Use this Stratagem in your Psychic phase. One GREY KNIGHTS PSYKER can attempt to cast one additional psychic power this phase.
1CP

PSYCHIC CHANNELLING

Grey Knights Stratagem

In combat, a Grey Knight can unfetter their psyker’s mind.

Use this Stratagem when taking a Psychic test for a GREY KNIGHTS PSYKER. Roll an additional D6 and discard the lowest result.
2CP

THE AEGIS

Grey Knights Stratagem

Upon induction into the Chapter, every Grey Knight is trained to steel himself against psychic assaults.

Use this Stratagem after an enemy PSYKER has manifested a psychic power within 24" of a GREY KNIGHTS PSYKER or GREY KNIGHTS VEHICLE from your army. Your unit can immediately attempt to Deny the Witch, and when taking the test, roll three dice rather than two and pick the two highest rolls.
2CP

HEED THE PROGNOSTICARS

Grey Knights Stratagem

Wise is the battle-brother who consults the Prognosticars and notes the hour when his mettle will be tested.

Use this Stratagem at the start of your turn. Select one GREY KNIGHTS CHARACTER. Until the start of your next turn, the invulnerable save of that character is improved by 1 (to a maximum of 3+).
2CP

FINEST HOUR

Grey Knights Stratagem

It is in the darkest times that the disciplined fury of the Grey Knights burns its brightest.

Use this Stratagem at the start of your turn. Select one GREY KNIGHTS CHARACTER from your army and increase the range of its aura abilities (e.g. Rites of Battle, Bane of Evil and Unyielding Anvil) by 6" until the end of the turn.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
And They Shall Know No Fear

Every Grey Knight has been subjected to an intensive regime of hypno-indoctrination and spiritual fortification, so that they may stand unafraid before the horrors of the warp.

You can re-roll failed Morale tests for this unit.
Daemon Hunters

Grey Knights are implacable foes of all things daemonic, their doctrines and weapons honed to the slaughter of warpspawn.

If this unit attacks any DAEMONS in the Fight phase, you can re-roll failed wound rolls for those attacks.
Teleport Strike

Teleportation assaults are a favoured tactic of the Grey Knights. The Chapter’s commanders have mastered this aggressive form of war, and the ancient technology upon which it relies.

During deployment, you can set up this unit in a teleportarium chamber instead of placing it on the battlefield. At the end of any of your Movement phases this unit can teleport into battle – set it up anywhere on the battlefield that is more than 9" away from any enemy models.
Bolter Discipline

To a Space Marine, the boltgun is far more than a weapon – it is an instrument of Mankind’s divinity, the bringer of death to his foes.

Instead of following the normal rules for Rapid Fire weapons, models in this unit firing Rapid Fire bolt weapons make double the number of attacks if any of the following apply:
  • The firing model’s target is within half the weapon’s maximum range.
  • The firing model is INFANTRY and every model in its unit remained stationary in your previous Movement phase.
  • The firing model is a TERMINATOR, BIKER, or DREADNOUGHT.
For the purposes of this ability, a Rapid Fire bolt weapon is any bolt weapon with the Rapid Fire type. A bolt weapon is any weapon whose profile includes the word ‘bolt’ (boltgun, bolt rifle, storm bolter, combi-bolter, hurricane bolter, etc.). Rules that apply to bolt weapons also apply to the boltgun profile of combi-weapons and Relics that replace bolt weapons.

The SERVITOR keyword is used in following Grey Knights datasheets:

Elites
Masters of the Warp

The Grey Knights wield the warp as a powerful weapon, their purity of soul protecting them from the foul depredations that would strike down lesser men.

PSYKER units with this ability gain a bonus depending on which of the Tides of the Warp is dominant (see below). If you have a Battle-forged army, units only benefit from this bonus if every unit from your army has this ability (excluding SERVITOR units). At the start of the first battle round, choose which of the Tides is currently dominant. The dominant Tide can subsequently be changed using the Warp Shaping psychic power.

Tide of Fury
Raw, forceful energy fills the Grey Knights’ muscles, strengthening their blows.
Whilst this Tide is dominant, when resolving an attack made with a Nemesis weapon by an INFANTRY model with this ability, you can re-roll a wound roll of 1.

Tide of Convergence
The focused energies bound within the Grey Knights’ psi weaponry attune with the currents of the empyrean.
Whilst this Tide is dominant, add 1 to the Strength and Damage characteristics of psi weapons that INFANTRY models with this ability are equipped with.

Tide of Shadows
The psykers wreathe their forms in the ever-shifting maelstrom of the immaterium.
Whilst this Tide is dominant, a unit with this ability receives the benefit of cover to its saving throw even while it is not entirely on or within a terrain feature. When resolving an attack made with a ranged weapon against a unit with this ability while it is entirely on or within a terrain feature, subtract 1 from the hit roll.

Tide of Escalation
The roiling tides of the warp swell and heave, boosting the psykers’ powers.
Whilst this Tide is dominant, when a unit with this ability and the Rites of Banishment ability manifests the Smite psychic power and it is not resisted, that power inflicts 1 additional mortal wound on the target.
Shock Assault

The Adeptus Astartes are elite shock troops who strike with the fury of a thunderbolt. Few opponents can withstand this onslaught.

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

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.

The BROTHER-CAPTAIN keyword is used in following Grey Knights datasheets:

Manifesting Psychic Powers
The same PSYKER unit cannot attempt to manifest Smite more than once during the same battle round. When you select a PSYKER unit to manifest psychic powers, you select one psychic power that unit knows and attempt to manifest it. With the exception of Smite, you cannot attempt to manifest the same psychic power more than once in the same battle round, even with different PSYKER units.

To manifest the psychic power, you must first pass a Psychic test. The opposing player can then select one of their PSYKER units that is within 24" of the PSYKER unit attempting to manifest the power and attempt to deny that power before its effects are resolved by passing a Deny the Witch test.

So long as the Psychic test was successful and the psychic power was not denied by a successful Deny the Witch test, the psychic power is successfully manifested and its effects, which will be described in the power itself, are then resolved. If the PSYKER unit can attempt to manifest more than one psychic power in its Psychic phase, you can then attempt to manifest those, one at a time, as described above. The number of psychic powers each PSYKER unit can attempt to manifest in its Psychic phase is listed on its datasheet.

  • Select psychic power.
  • You cannot select the same psychic power more than once per battle round, unless that power is Smite.
  • Attempt to manifest the psychic power by taking a Psychic test.
  • The opponent can attempt to deny the psychic power by taking a Deny the Witch test.
  • If successfully manifested, resolve the psychic power’s effects.
  • Select another psychic power.
Smite
Smite has a warp charge value of 5. Add 1 to the warp charge value of this psychic power for each other attempt that has been made to manifest this power by a unit from your army in this phase, whether that attempt was successful or not. If manifested, the closest enemy unit within 18" of and visible to the psyker suffers D3 mortal wounds. If the result of the Psychic test was 11 or more, that unit suffers D6 mortal wounds instead.

  • Warp Charge 5: A Psychic test of 5+ is required to manifest Smite.
  • Warp charge increases by 1 for each other attempt to manifest Smite made in this phase.
  • If manifested, closest visible enemy unit in 18" suffers D3 mortal wounds.
  • If manifested with a Psychic test result of 11+, enemy instead suffers D6 mortal wounds.
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 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.
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 BROTHER-CAPTAIN keyword is used in following Grey Knights datasheets:

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.
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

Onslaught201-3002001-300018

  • Starting number of Command points varies with battle size.

The BROTHERHOOD CHAMPION keyword is used in following Grey Knights datasheets:

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.
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.
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).
