ABILITIES
ABILITIES
Angels of Death, Death From Above, Armour of Contempt
Drop Pod Assault: This transport must start the battle set up high in the skies (see Death From Above) but neither it, nor any units embarked within it, are counted towards any limits that the mission you are playing places on the maximum number of Reinforcement units you can have in your army. This transport can be set up in the Reinforcements step of your first, second or third Movement phase, regardless of any mission rules. Any units embarked within this transport must immediately disembark after it has been set up on the battlefield, and they must be set up more than 9" away from any enemy models. After this transport has been set up on the battlefield, no units can embark within it.
Dreadnought Transport: If your army is Battle-forged, then for each DREADNOUGHT model that has a Wounds characteristic of 9 or less included in a Detachment, you can Include 1 DREADNOUGHT DROP POD model in that Detachment without taking up an additional Battlefield Role slot. No more than 1 DREADNOUGHT DROP POD model can be taken for each such DREADNOUGHT model.
Explodes: When this model is destroged, roll one D6 before removing it from play. On a 6 it explodes, and each unit within 6" suffers 1 mortal wound.
TRANSPORT
TRANSPORT
This model has a transport capacity of 1 DREADNOUGHT model. It cannot transport DREADNOUGHT models that have a Wounds characteristic of 10 or more.

Datasheet-related Stratagems

ARMOUR OF CONTEMPT1CP
Adeptus Astartes – Epic Deed Stratagem

The belligerency of some Adeptus Astartes machine spirits makes them unyielding foes to face.

Use this Stratagem in any phase, when an ADEPTUS ASTARTES VEHICLE model from your army would lose a wound as the result of a mortal wound. Until the end of the phase, each time that model would lose a wound as the result of a mortal wound, roll one D6: on a 5+, that wound is not lost.
Angels of Death

Space Marines are amongst the finest warriors in the Imperium.

This unit has the following abilities, which are described below: And They Shall Know No Fear; Bolter Discipline; Shock Assault; Combat Doctrines.

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.
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.
Army List
Datasheets collated
Faction Rules

The keyword is used in the following Space Marines datasheets:

Death From Above

The Angels of Death launch their attack from all directions. Troops equipped with jump packs and grav-chutes descend from the heavens, guns blazing as they slam into battle.

During deployment, if every model in this unit has this ability, then you can set up this unit high in the skies instead of setting it up on the battlefield. If you do, then 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.
Disembark
If a unit starts its Movement phase embarked within a TRANSPORT model, that unit can disembark in that phase so long as the model itself has not yet made a Normal Move, an Advance or has Fallen Back that phase.

When a unit disembarks, set it up on the battlefield so that it is wholly within 3" of the TRANSPORT model and not within Engagement Range of any enemy models.

Units that disembark can then act normally (move, shoot, charge, fight, etc.) in the remainder of the turn, but its models count as having moved that turn, even if they are not moved further (i.e. they never count as having Remained Stationary).

  • Units that start their Movement phase embarked in a TRANSPORT can disembark this phase.
  • A unit must disembark before their TRANSPORT moves.
  • Disembarking units must be set up wholly within 3" of their TRANSPORT and not within Engagement Range of any enemy models.
  • Units that have disembarked count as having moved this turn.
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 Dedicated Transport Battlefield Role. Full list of Space Marines units sharing same Battlefield Role follows:

Reinforcement Units
If a unit is ever added to a Battle-forged army during the battle, it is never considered to be part of a Detachment. This means that it never costs CPs to include them in your army but they will never benefit from any Detachment abilities.

  • Units added to your army during the battle are never part of a Detachment.
