Imperial Militia

From Horus Heresy Supplement
Jump to: navigation, search


Imperial Militia armies have a Strategy Rating of 2. All formations have an Initiative rating of 2+.

When selected as allies for another army, some armies will state the restriction "Imperial Militia (Traitor Militia)". This means that at least one detachment in the allied units must take the Traitors provenance upgrade.

For background information, see Forces of the Imperium: Imperial Militia

Special Rules


Berserk. Some units are taken with a blood rage before or during a battle, this fury makes them nearly uncontrollable, thirsting for wanton death and destruction. A unit with the Berserk characteristic may double it's movement distance when conducting an Engage order. Additionally, formations containing Berserk units can not claim objectives under Tournament conditions.

Dedicated War Engine Transports

Gorgon Armoured Transports may only transport units from their own formation. I.e. the rules for War Engine transports do not apply to them when using the Imperial Militia army list.

Discipline Masters / Rogue Psykers

An Imperial Militia army may include one Discipline Master character per 500 points, or part thereof, in the army. The Discipline Masters do not cost any points. Discipline Master characters may be added to the army at the start of the battle before either side sets up. If the army includes a Force Commander then the first Discipline Master must be attached to Force Commander’s formation. Any further Discipline Masters may be attached to any other formations. You may not include more than one Discipline Master per formation. You may not add a Discipline Master to an Imperial Navy or allied formation. If you have more Discipline Masters than formations, any excess are lost. A Rogue Psyker may be exchanged for a Discipline Master in any formation that has taken the Traitor Provenance.


Certain formations may purchase the Provenance upgrade. Army wide, only two types of provenance may be selected, but any eligible formation may purchase one of the two provenance selections. The provenance upgrade will modify the unit values for all infantry (INF) units in the detachment in one of the following ways: Warrior Elite: +1 Firefight (FF) value
Survivors of the Dark Age: +1 Armour save (Armour) value
Feral Warriors: +1 Close Combat (CC) value
Traitors: gain the Berserk special rule (see 1.3). Ogryn Brute Squad units chosen in a formation with the Traitors Provenance must choose the Chaos Spawn Mutations option.

For example, an Inducted Levy squad has purchased the Feral Warriors upgrade. All of the levy Auxiliary units in the formation will modify their regular (CC) value of 6+ to (CC) 5+.

Units should be modeled appropriately so suit the chosen provenance.

Exploratory Augury Web

Enemy units entering the game via the Planetfall special rule within 15cm of an opposing unit with the Exploratory Augury Web special rule must roll a D6 for each unit in in the detachment, taking a blast marker for each 1 rolled. Friendly units entering play via the Teleport special rule within 15cm of a friendly unit with the Exploratory Augury Web do not roll for blast markers.


Armies may ally with a wide range of factions in the Heresy supplement, while some are easily incorporated into your force others have a disruptive effect on your overall strategy. Any formations from a “Disruptive” ally reduce the army’s strategy rating by 1. Additionally, Supreme Commander rerolls may not be used on “Disruptive” ally formations. Allied force selections must comply with any restrictions within their own army lists. When including formations from an ally army list, the restrictions for Space Craft and Supreme Commanders are applied across the entire force. Only one Supreme Commander can be selected and he must come from the primary army list. For example, an allies line detachment must be purchased before you can purchase an allies support detachment.
