Template:Special Rule: Legion Astartes
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.
