Angels of Death, Armour of Contempt
Hunters Beyond Death: Models in this unit ignore the Look Out, Sir rule if the target is a PSYKER. In addition, each time a model in this unit makes an attack against an enemy PSYKER unit, add 1 to that attack’s hit roll and add 1 to the Damage characteristic of that attack.
Runic Totems: This unit can only be selected as the target of an enemy psychic power if it is the closest enemy unit to the model manifesting that psychic power. In addition, each time this unit would lose a wound in the Psychic phase, roll one D6; on a 4+, that wound is not lost.
Morkai’s Howl (Aura): While an enemy PSYKER unit is within 18" of this unit, subtract 1 from Psychic tests taken for it. While that PSYKER unit is within 6" of this unit, subtract an additional 1 from Psychic tests taken for it.

Datasheet-related Stratagems

OCULAR NETWORKING1CP
Vanguard Spearhead – Battle Tactic Stratagem

When fighting as part of Vanguard Spearhead, Space Marines utilise the sophisticated ocular systems of their Phobos armour to greater efficacy. Sharing combat data across inter-squad networks, they identify weaknesses in even the most resilient foe, deficiencies which precise attacks can take advantage of.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase or the Fight phase, when a VANGUARD SPEARHEAD 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 that targets a MONSTER or VEHICLE unit, on an unmodified wound roll of 6, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of that attack by 2 (this is cumulative with the bonus gained from the Combat Doctrines ability).
CUNNING OF THE WOLF1CP
Space Wolves – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The most successful hunts are those where the prey doesn’t know they are being hunted.

Use this Stratagem during deployment. Select one SPACE WOLVES INFANTRY unit from your army. All models in that unit gain the Outflank ability.
HEALING BALMS1CP
Space Wolves – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Learned in arcane biomechanics and chirurgery, Wolf Priests apply their rough surgery, shamanistic rites and medicinal balms to drag warriors back from the gates of Morkai’s realm of death.

Use this Stratagem at the end of your Movement phase. Select one SPACE WOLVES INFANTRY, SPACE WOLVES BIKER or SPACE WOLVES CAVALRY model from your army within 3" of a friendly SPACE WOLVES WOLF PRIEST to be healed. That model regains up to D3 lost wounds. Each model can only be healed once per turn.
TRANSHUMAN PHYSIOLOGY1CP/2CP
Adeptus Astartes – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Space Marines can fight through even the most grievous of wounds.

Use this Stratagem in any phase, when a PRIMARIS unit from your army is selected as the target of an attack. Until the end of the phase, each time an attack is made against that unit, an unmodified wound roll of 1-3 for that attack fails, irrespective of any abilities that the weapon or the model making the attack may have. If that unit contains 5 or fewer models, this Stratagem costs 1CP; otherwise, it costs 2CP.
GENE-WROUGHT MIGHT1CP
Adeptus Astartes – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Blessed with incredible strength, Primaris Space Marines deliver blows that inflict terrifying damage.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a PRIMARIS 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, an unmodified hit roll of 6 automatically wounds the target.
PIVOTAL MOMENT2CP
Vanguard Spearhead – Epic Deed Stratagem

There comes a crucial juncture in many battles where opportunity presents a key enemy target for the perfect shot. Whether the culmination of patiently outmanoeuvring the enemy or sheer fate, if the moment is seized, it can turn the tide of whole wars, sending far larger forces into rout.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a VANGUARD SPEARHEAD CORE model from your army is selected to shoot. Until the end of the phase, each time that model makes a ranged attack against an enemy WARLORD, a successful wound roll inflicts a number of mortal wounds equal to the Damage characteristic of the weapon used for that attack, and the attack sequence ends.
THANE OF THE RETINUE1CP
Space Wolves – Requisition Stratagem

The lords of the Fang are stern but generous masters, who may reward a worthy warrior with an artefact of great power.

Use this Stratagem before the battle, when you are mustering your army, if your WARLORD has the SPACE WOLVES keyword. Select one SPACE WOLVES model from your army that has the word ‘Sergeant’ or ‘Pack Leader’ in their profile. That model can have one of the following Special-issue Wargear Relics, even though they are not a CHARACTER: Master-crafted Weapon; Digital Weapons; Frost Weapon; Morkai’s Teeth Bolts. 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.
GUERILLA TACTICS1CP
Adeptus Astartes – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

At the opportune moment, Space Marine infiltration units slip away from battle, only to relocate and strike the foe again.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when a PHOBOS unit from your army that is more than 6" from any enemy models is selected to move. If the mission you are playing is using the Strategic Reserves rule, place that unit into Strategic Reserves. That unit cannot arrive from Strategic Reserves in the same turn it is placed into Strategic Reserves.
TERROR TROOPS2CP
Adeptus Astartes – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

At the most critical time, Reivers engage their armour's enhanced features to terrify and disrupt the enemy as much as possible.

Use this Stratagem in your Command phase. Select one REIVER unit from your army.
  • That unit gains the following ability: 'Terror Troops (Aura): Until the start of your next Command phase, while an enemy unit is within 3" of that unit, it loses the Objective Secured ability and any similar abilities that allow them to control an objective marker regardless of the number of enemy models within range of that objective marker.
  • Until the end of the turn, each time that REIVER unit ends a Normal Move, an Advance or a charge move within 3" of an enemy unit that is performing an action, roll 2D6: if the total exceeds that enemy unit's Leadership characteristic, the action the unit is attempting to perform immediately fails.
STEADY ADVANCE2CP
Adeptus Astartes – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

A measured advance allows Space Marines to unleash a steady stream of fire.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when an ADEPTUS ASTARTES INFANTRY unit from your army makes a Normal Move. Until the end of the turn, that unit is considered to have Remained Stationary.
UNCOMPROMISING FIRE2CP
Adeptus Astartes – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Switching weapons to full auto, the Space Marines unleash a short-lived but inescapable hail of fire.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase. Select one ADEPTUS ASTARTES INFANTRY unit from your army that is performing an action. That unit can shoot this phase without that action failing.
KEEN SENSES1CP
Space Wolves – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The heightened senses of the Space Wolves allow them to sniff out prey wherever, or however, it is hidden.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase. Select one SPACE WOLVES INFANTRY, SPACE WOLVES BIKER or SPACE WOLVES CAVALRY unit from your army. Until the end of the turn, you can ignore any or all hit roll, Ballistic skill and Weapon skill modifiers, and each time you make a charge roll for that unit, you can ignore any or all modifiers to that charge roll.
BESTIAL NATURE1CP
Space Wolves – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Every son of Russ feels the instinctive feral impulses flood through them in battle, a howling and vicious urge to hunt.

Use this Stratagem in your Command phase if a combat doctrine is active for your army. Select one SPACE WOLVES INFANTRY, SPACE WOLVES CAVALRY or SPACE WOLVES BIKER unit from your army. Until the start of your next Command phase, that unit gains the bonus of the Assault Doctrine instead of the active combat doctrine.
DISPERSAL PROTOCOLS2CP
Vanguard Spearhead – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Vanguard squads are trained to rapidly disengage from their foe, moving to new positions before attacking once more.

Use this Stratagem at the end of the Fight phase. Select one VANGUARD SPEARHEAD unit from your army that is within Engagement Range of any enemy units. That unit can Fall Back as if it were your Movement phase.
TACTICAL AUGURY1CP
Vanguard Spearhead – Wargear Stratagem

Vanguard Spearheads utilise advanced scanning equipment and orbital augurs to grant them an awareness of the battle-sphere's layout few forces can match. With such tactical advantage, they make pinpoint shots into enemy strongpoints and through dense defence lines, driving the foe out of cover and onto the blades of the Spearhead's encircling executioners.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a VANGUARD SPEARHEAD unit from your army is selected to shoot. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes a ranged attack, the target does not receive the benefits of cover against that attack.
AUSPEX SCAN2CP
Adeptus Astartes – Wargear Stratagem

Nearby motion and radiation signatures are detected by a handheld device, forewarning the bearer of ambushes.

Use this Stratagem at the end of the Reinforcements step of your opponent's Movement phase. Select one ADEPTUS ASTARTES INFANTRY unit from your army that is not within Engagement Range of any enemy units. That unit can shoot as if it were your Shooting phase, but its models can only target a single eligible enemy unit that was set up as Reinforcements this turn and that is within 12" of their unit when doing so.
1CP

STALKER PACK

Specialist Detachment Stratagem

From the shadows come Space Wolves Stalker Packs, pursuing their quarry with unwavering ferocity. Once the enemy realises they are being pursued, it is often too late to evade their fate.

Use this Stratagem when choosing your army. Pick a SPACE WOLVES Detachment from your army to be a Stalker Pack Specialist Detachment. BATTLE LEADERS, BLOOD CLAWS and REIVERS in that Detachment gain the STALKER PACK keyword.
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.
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.

Frag grenades used in the following datasheets:

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.

Krak grenades used in the following datasheets:

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Manifesting Psychic Powers
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. The same PSYKER unit cannot attempt to manifest Smite more than once during the same battle round.

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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
Look out, Sir
Models cannot target a unit that contains any CHARACTER models with a Wounds characteristic of 9 or less with a ranged weapon while that CHARACTER unit is within 3" of any of the following:
  • A friendly unit that contains 1 or more VEHICLE or MONSTER models with a wounds characteristic of 10 or more.
  • A friendly non-CHARACTER unit that contains 1 or more VEHICLE or MONSTER models.
  • A friendly non-CHARACTER unit that contains 3 or more models.
In all cases, if that CHARACTER unit is both visible to the firing model and it is the closest enemy unit to the firing model, it can be targeted normally. When determining if that CHARACTER unit is the closest enemy unit to the firing model, ignore other enemy units that contain any CHARACTER models with a Wounds characteristics of 9 or less.

  • Cannot shoot at an enemy CHARACTER with 9 or less wounds while it is within 3" of a friendly unit that contains 1 MONSTER, 1 VEHICLE or 3+ other models (excluding CHARACTER models with 9 or less wounds) unless it is the closest target.
Terrain and Cover
Some pieces of terrain can provide certain bonuses to units in your army. Each bonus and how to acquire it is described in the Terrain Features section of the Core Rules. If a model has acquired such a bonus (to it's Save, Leadership or other characteristics), it is considered as receiving the benefit of cover. There are ways for some models to ignore such bonuses while making an attack, but it should be known what kind of benefit is ignored (see the Rare Rules for clarification).
Combat Doctrines

When the Adeptus Astartes fight, they employ a set of combat doctrines to eliminate the enemy. After pounding the foe with heavy weapons, warriors advance to lay down a hail of bolter fire before charging forth with chainswords roaring to finish the foe.

If every unit from your army has the ADEPTUS ASTARTES keyword (excluding AGENT OF THE IMPERIUM and UNALIGNED units), this unit gains a bonus (see below) depending on which combat doctrine is active for your army, as follows:
  • During the first battle round, the Devastator Doctrine is active for your army.
  • During the second battle round, the Tactical Doctrine is active for your army.
  • At the start of the third battle round, select either the Tactical Doctrine or Assault Doctrine: until the end of that battle round, the doctrine you selected is active for your army.
  • During the fourth and subsequent battle rounds, the Assault Doctrine is active for your army.
Unless specified otherwise, this bonus is not cumulative with any other rules that improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of a weapon (e.g. the Storm of Fire Warlord Trait).

Devastator Doctrine

The Codex Astartes explains in detail the strategic value of overwhelming firepower applied to key targets at the optimal time in order to eliminate threats and create tactical openings.

While this combat doctrine is active, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of every Heavy and Grenade weapon that models in this unit are equipped with by 1.

Tactical Doctrine

As the warring armies close upon one another and vicious firefights erupt, the Codex lays out strategies for swiftly seizing the initiative and combining versatility with firepower.

While this combat doctrine is active, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of every Rapid Fire and Assault weapon that models in this unit are equipped with by 1.

Assault Doctrine

The Codex Astartes leaves no doubt that the killing blow in most engagements must be delivered with a decisive close-quarters strike. It presents plentiful tactical means to achieve this end.

While this combat doctrine is active, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of every Pistol and Melee weapon that models in this unit are equipped with by 1.
Outflank

When necessary, Space Marine units can operate behind enemy lines indefinitely, awaiting the perfect opportunity to appear on the enemy’s flank and wreak havoc.

During deployment, if every model in this unit has this ability, then you can set up this unit behind enemy lines 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 wholly within 6" of any battlefield edge and more than 9" away from any enemy models.

The SPACE WOLVES and CAVALRY keywords are used in the following Space Marines datasheets:

The SPACE WOLVES and WOLF PRIEST keywords are used in the following Space Marines 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.

MASTER-CRAFTED WEAPON

Though the Space Wolves maintain many traditions that appear simple, atavistic or even barbarous, the exquisite workmanship poured into their deadly weapons is widely lauded. Entire halls and chambers in the Fang are hung with ornate arms, every one forged for one of the Chapter’s greatest heroes.

When you give a model this Relic, select one weapon that model is equipped with (this cannot be a weapon whose profile includes the word ‘master-crafted’). Add 1 to the Damage characteristic of that weapon. That weapon is considered to be a Chapter Relic.

DIGITAL WEAPONS

Concealed weapons may be fitted into bionic implants, the knuckles of a power-armoured gauntlet, the fanged maw of a sculpted wolf helm or countless other places. Some are lasers or small flame weapons, while others take the form of hidden power talons fitted to armoured boots. Short-ranged and powerful, they are typically triggered in the midst of melee to attack from an unexpected angle.

Each time the bearer fights, it can make 1 additional attack using the close combat weapon profile (see the Warhammer 40,000 Core Book). If that attack scores a hit, the target suffers 1 mortal wound and the attack sequence ends.

FROST WEAPON

Amongst the most prized weapons of the sons of Russ - himself the Lord of Winter and War - these blisteringly cold weapons are specially crafted by a master Iron Priest. Some are forged from the diamond-sharp fangs of the Ice Kraken while others are shards of energised diamond, giving them the appearance of blades forged from purest ice.

When you give a model this Relic, select one of the following weapons that model is equipped with: lightning claw; master-crafted power axe; master-crafted power sword; power axe; power sword. Add 1 to the Strength and Damage characteristic of that weapon (if the model is equipped with two lightning claws, improve the characteristics of both weapons). That weapon (or weapons, if the model is equipped with two lightning claws) is considered to be a Chapter Relic.

MORKAI’S TEETH BOLTS

Tipped with slivers of dark, unmelting ice mined from the deepest caves on auspicious moonless nights, these bolts mark their luckless victims' very spirits, drawing the eye of Morkai to them.

When you give a model this Relic, select one bolt weapon that model is equipped with. When that model is chosen to shoot with, you can choose for that weapon to fire a Morkai’s Teeth bolt. If you do, you can only make one attack with that weapon, but if that attack scores a hit, the target unit is marked by Morkai until the end of the turn and the attack sequence ends. Each time an attack is made against a unit that is marked by Morkai, re-roll a wound roll of 1.
Objective Secured
Some units have an ability called Objective Secured. A player controls an objective marker if they have any models with this ability within range of that objective marker, even if there are more enemy models within range of that objective marker. If an enemy model within range of an objective marker also has this ability (or a similar ability), then the objective marker is controlled by the player who has the most models within range of that objective marker as normal.

  • Objective Secured: Player controls objective marker if any of their models in range have this ability.
