Legion Astartes. Legion Astartes are renowned for their tenacity and bravery. This is represented by the following changes to the standard rules, which apply to all Legion Astartes units.

  • It takes 2 Blast markers to suppress a Legion Astartes unit or kill a unit in a broken formation (ignore any leftover Blast markers).
  • Legion Astartes formations are only considered broken if they have 2 blast markers per unit in the formation (as opposed to the standard blast marker per unit).
  • Legion Astartes formations only count half the number of blast markers in assault resolution (rounding down – note that assault resolution will not receive +1 for having no blast markers if the formation has 1 blast marker before rounding down).
  • When a broken Legion Astartes formation rallies, it receives a number of blast markers equal to the number of units, rather than half this number. Legion Astartes with the Leader special ability remove 2 blast markers instead of 1.
