Datasheet-related Stratagems

GRATUITOUS BLOODLETTING1CP
Disciples of the Red Angel – Battle Tactic Stratagem

When the scent of the foe's blood is on the wind, the followers of Angron will ensure that every last drop is spilled in honour of the Lord of Battle.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a unit from your army is selected to fight. Select one enemy unit within Engagement Range of that unit that is below Half-strength. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes an attack against the selected enemy unit, add 1 to that attack’s wound roll.
SAVAGE RESILIENCE1CP
World Eaters – Boarding Actions – Battle Tactic Stratagem

In the heat of battle, World Eaters become almost oblivious to enemy fire, charging forward with little regard for even grievous injuries.

Use this Stratagem in your opponent’s Shooting phase, when a unit is selected as the target of an attack. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit would lose a wound, roll one D6: on a 5+, that wound is not lost.
GORY DISMEMBERMENT1CP
World Eaters – Boarding Actions – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The World Eaters are not noble fighters. They hack their foes down with smashing blows, tear them apart with screaming chainaxes or fell them with tainted blades in the most brutal fashion imaginable.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a model (excluding CULTIST models) from your army destroys a model in an enemy unit. Until the end of the turn, subtract 3 from the Leadership characteristic of models in that enemy unit and your opponent cannot re-roll any Morale tests taken for it.
DIABOLIC MACHINES2CP/1CP
Disciples of the Red Angel – Epic Deed Stratagem

Even the tainted machineries of the World Eaters are affected by Angron’s rageful presence, their bound spirits seeking to destroy their foe despite any damage done to their metallic form.

Use this Stratagem in your Command phase. Select one MACHINE SPIRIT or DAEMON ENGINE model from your army that has characteristics that change as it suffers damage. Until the start of your next Command phase, that model is considered to have its full wounds remaining for the purposes of determining what characteristics on its profile to use. If that model has the Titanic keyword, this Stratagem costs 2CP; otherwise, it costs 1CP.
APOPLECTIC FRENZY1CP
Disciples of the Red Angel – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Those who fight in the shadow of the Red Angel are driven to even greater depths of rage, surging towards the foe in a barely controlled tide.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when a unit from your army is selected to Advance. Do not make an Advance roll. Instead, until the end of the phase, add 6" to the Move characteristic of models in that unit.
VIOLENT DISMEMBERMENT1CP
Disciples of the Red Angel – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The World Eaters do not kill with elegance, but as savage butchers, hacking apart their prey and letting their lifeblood pump onto the battlefield. Those who witness these massacres frequently attempt to flee to avoid being the next victims.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a unit from your army destroys an enemy unit. Until the end of the turn, that unit gains the following ability:

Violent Dismemberment (Aura): While an enemy unit is within 6" of this is unit:
  • Subtract 2 from the Leadership characteristic of models in that unit.
  • Subtract 1 from Combat Attrition tests taken for that unit.
TERRIFYING ASSAULT1CP
Disciples of the Red Angel – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The Disciples of the Red Angel are terrifying to behold. Many foes who would normally fight boldly freeze in terror at the sight of such daemonic horrors bearing down upon them.

Use this Stratagem in your Charge phase, when you select any enemy units as the target of a charge made by a unit from your army. Select one of those enemy units:
  • That enemy unit cannot fire Overwatch or Set to Defend against that charge.
  • In the subsequent Fight phase, each time a model in that enemy unit makes a melee attack, subtract 1 from that attack’s hit roll.
BLOODTHIRSTY DETERMINATION1CP
Disciples of the Red Angel – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Those who follow Angron on his bloody rampages let nothing stand in the way of getting to grips with the foe.

Use this Stratagem in your Charge phase, when you select a unit from your army to charge. Until the end of the phase, you can ignore any or all modifiers to charge rolls made for that unit.
SCORN OF SORCERY1CP
World Eaters – Boarding Actions – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Like the god they worship, the warriors of the World Eaters despise psykers and their trickery, and through the sheer force of their hatred can cause sorcerous powers to be undone.

Use this Stratagem in your opponent’s Psychic phase, after a Psychic test is passed for an enemy PSYKER unit and after any Deny the Witch attempt is made. If that PSYKER unit is within 18" of and visible to any units from your army, roll one D6: on a 4+, that psychic power is denied.
WRATHFUL CHARGE1CP
World Eaters – Boarding Actions – Wargear Stratagem

With unrestrained fury, the World Eaters bound forward to savage the foe with axes, swords and even their bare hands.

Use this Stratagem in your Charge phase, when a unit (excluding CULTIST units) from your army is selected to charge. Until the end of the phase:
  • Each time you make a charge roll for that unit, roll one additional D6 and discard the lowest result.
  • When making a charge move, models in that unit can move horizontally through other models (but cannot finish that move on top of another model, or its base).
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.
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.
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.
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.

The CULTISTS keyword is used in the following World Eaters datasheets:

Troops
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.
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.
Combat Attrition Tests
If a unit fails a Morale test, then after the first model has fled the unit, you must take Combat Attrition tests. To do so, roll one D6 for each remaining model in that unit, subtracting 1 from the result if the unit is below Half-strength; for each result of 1, one additional model flees that unit. You decide which models from your unit flee – those models are removed from play and count as having been destroyed, but they never trigger any rules that are used when a model is destroyed.

  • Combat Attrition tests: Roll one D6 for each remaining model in unit; for each 1, one additional model flees.
  • Subtract 1 from Combat Attrition tests if unit is below Half-strength.
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.
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.

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.
