Introduction

Legion Astartes armies have a strategy rating of 5 and Legion Astartes formations have an initiative rating of 1+. Up to 1/3 of the army's total points value may be spent on Allies and/or Lords of War. A player may choose to have their army represent one of the unique legions present during the Horus Heresy, a player may only select one unique Legion. The Primarch and unique unit choices become available to the player for inclusion in their army.

Special Rules

Allies. 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 one (-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 they must come from the primary army list. For example, an allies line detachment must be purchased before you can purchase an allies support detachment.

Demi-God. A Demi-God unit has three wounds similar to a WE, however, a Demi-God wound capacity has a number of differences to that of a WE. A Demi-God unit must maintain a 5cm unit coherency with its formation unless it possesses the Scout special rule. A Demi-God unit can be allocated hits up to its starting wound capacity. A Demi-God unit requires two blast markers to be considered suppressed or broken. A Demi-God that loses a damage point does not incur a blast marker, however, when a Demi-God’s wounds are reduced to zero, the Demi-God unit is destroyed and all friendly formation within 30cm receive two blast markers. A Demi-God unit does not suffer critical hits when it loses a wound and cannot barge other units like a WE. A Demi-God does not roll a number of hit dice equal to its wounds like a WE and cannot elect to use its FF or CC value like a WE. A Demi-God unit counts as the same unit type as their retinue for transport capacity purposes.

Exploratory Augury Web. 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.

Feedback. If a unit firing a weapon with the Feedback special rule fails to cause damage when hitting an enemy unit, roll a D6 for each successful armour save the enemy unit made. The firing unit takes a blast marker for each 1 rolled.

Fleshbane. Some weapons utilise ammunition that is exceptionally effective against infantry units or are specifically designed to rend flesh. Ammunition types might include radiological, biological or chemical munitions, while other equipment might entail serrated blades and poison. A hit generated from a "Fleshbane" weapon attack reduces the target's saving throw by one (-1). This modifier only applies to a hit generated by the Anti Personnel (AP), Close Combat (CC) or Firefight (FF) to hit value of a "Fleshbane" weapon and that is allocated against Infantry (INF) or (LV) units. This effect is ignored when hitting or allocated against Armored Vehicles (AV) or War Engines (WE).

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.

Sniper. There are certain units that possess excellent marksmanship skills, weapons with advanced targeting equipment or skills in dueling and assassination. When determining hits from a weapon with the "Sniper" characteristic, roll to hit separately, during step three of the Shooting Procedure or during step four of the Assault Procedure. Sniper attacks may be allocated against any target of the attackers choosing, as long as it is a valid target either in range and line of fire or base contact.

Void Shields. Some units are protected by void shield generators. Each void shield will stop one point of damage and then go down. Do not make armour saves for damage stopped by void shields, nor allocate blast markers. Once all of the shields have been knocked down, the unit may be damaged normally and you may make saving throws against any hits that are allocated. Hits from close combat ignore void shields but units using their firefight value must first knock down any shields before they can damage the unit. Void shields that have been knocked down can be repaired. A unit can repair one downed void shield in the end phase of each turn. In addition, if a unit regroups it can use the dice roll to either repair a void shield or remove blast markers (e.g., if you rolled a 2 you could repair 2 shields, remove 2 blast markers or repair 1 shield and remove 1 blast marker).
