Daemonic Gifts

Daemons of Malal rolls on the same tables as seen in Codex: Chaos Daemons. They also have their own gifts of Malal.

Lesser Rewards: 0. Parascythe: AP3 melee, enemy daemons struck with this weapon must take invulnerable saves at a -1 penalty. This accumulates with other penalties to their invulnerable saves.

  • Increase the Strength and Attack values of the wielder by the result (To a maximum of 10).
  • Reduce enemies Weapon Skill and Initiative in base contact by the result (To a minimum of 1).

Instruments of Chaos: If, when you roll on the Warp Storm table, you roll a result where a dark god makes an attack on the battlefield, you may re-roll a single dice to determine if a unit is hit or not for each friendly Daemon of Malal model with an Instrument of Chaos currently on the table. Otherwise, the rules are the same as in Codex: Chaos Daemons.

Icons of Chaos: The rules can be found in Codex: Chaos Daemons. A unit may upgrade their Icon into the following:
