Codex - T'aus: /tg/'s 8th Edition

From 1d4chan
AIAaward.gif This article is awesome. Do not fuck it up.

This Codex was made to bring T'aus up to their power in the lore as well as to implement some units and battlesuit only seen in the lore. All the rules in this page are meant to be used alongside the normal T'aus Codex. If a rule isn't explained, look it up on the Codex.

Contents

Expansions[edit]

Here you can find extra rules for additional powerful Septs, alongside sceneries for campaigns and special missions. WIP

Army Rules[edit]

Universal[edit]

  • Commanders (Matched Play Only): If you are playing a matched play game, then in a Battle-forged army, you can include no more than one Commander in each Detachment. If you are using a Farsight Conclaves detachment, the limit is increased to two instead.
Battlesuits[edit]
  • Advanced Technological Masterpieces: All Battlesuit units count as having the Vehicle keyword for the purpose of any stratagem, psychic power and special rules.
  • Blacksun Filter: All Battlesuit units don't suffer penalties to their hit rolls as a result of special rules such as Night Fighting or Dawn Raid.
  • Emergency Ejection Protocols: Every time a Battlesuit unit (that is not Titanic or a special character) loses its last wound, roll a die. On a 4+ place on the battlefield, as close as possible to the Battlesuit's last position, a single Pilot model with the profile below. This model is then considered as a different unit and acts as one for the duration of the battle, even though it doesn't award additional Victory Points if killed. XV46 Vanguard Void Suit units add 2 to the result. (Note that first blood is still awarded, even if the roll is successful. Slay the Warlord, on the other hand, is only awarded if the Battlesuit Pilot is killed)
Name M WS BS S T W A Ld Sv
Battlesuit Pilot 6" 4+ 4+ 3 3 1 2 8 6+

Wargear:

  • Photon Grenades
  • Pulse Pistol

Special Rules:

  • For The Greater Good

Keywords:

  • Faction:<Sept>, T'au Empire
  • HQ, Battlesuit Pilot, Infantry, Character
Drones[edit]
  • AI Helpers: Drone units automatically passe Morale tests.
  • Saviour Protocols: When resolving an attack made against a <SEPT> INFANTRY or <SEPT> BATTLESUIT unit whilst that unit is within 3" of a friendly <SEPT> DRONES unit, if the wound roll is successful, you can roll one D6; on a 2+ that DRONES unit suffers 1 mortal wound and the attack sequence ends. A DRONES unit may not intercept wounds from weapons that have a Strength characteristic of more than 10 or a Damage characteristic of more than 6.
Markelights[edit]

If a model (other than a VEHICLE or Battlesuit) fires a markerlight, it cannot fire any other weapons in that phase. When a unit is hit by a markerlight, place a counter next to it for the remainder of the phase. The table below describes the benefits T'AU EMPIRE models have when shooting at a unit that has markerlight counters. All benefits are cumulative.

  • 1 - You can re-roll hit rolls of 1 for T'AU EMPIRE models attacking this unit.
  • 2 - Destroyer and Seeker Missiles fired at this unit hit using the firing model’s Ballistic Skill, regardless of any negative modifiers.
  • 3 - The target unit does not gain any bonus to its saving throws for being in cover.
  • 4 - T'AU EMPIRE models attacking this unit do not suffer the penalty for moving and firing Heavy weapons or Advancing and firing Assault weapons.
  • 5 or more - Add 1 (or more, increasing with each markerlight counter after the fifth one) to hit rolls for T'AU EMPIRE models attacking this unit.

Detachment Rules[edit]

  • Sept Tenets: The septs have developed their own unique ways of war, contributing reams of combat-tested doctrine and tactical data to the academies of the Fire caste.
If your army is Battle-forged, all <Sept> units in T'au Empire Detachments gain a Sept Tenet, so long as every unit in that Detachment is from the same sept. The Sept Tenet gained depends upon the sept they are drawn from, as shown on the table on the right. For example, all units in a Vior'la Detachment gain the Strike Fast Sept Tenet.
  • Warriors of the Greater Good: Every Fire Warrior is a zealous believer in the T’au’s utilitarian philosophy, and will lay down their life without a second thought to advance the empire’s cause.
If your army is Battle-forged, all Troops (except Drones) units in T'au Empire Detachments gain this ability. Such a unit that is within range of an objective marker (as specified in the mission) controls that objective marker even if there are more enemy models within range of that objective marker. If an enemy unit within range of the same objective marker has a similar ability, then the objective marker is controlled by the player who has the most models within range of it as normal.

Sept Tenets[edit]

  • Bork'an Sept - Superior Craftsmanship: From Bork’an Sept’s renowned applied science divisions come the most advanced and ingenious weapon prototypes, field tested by elite contingents of Fire caste soldiers.
Models with this tenet may add 6" to the maximum Range of any Rapid Fire and Heavy weapons they are armed with.
  • Dal'yth Sept - Adaptive Camouflage: The T’au of Dal’yth prize victory at any cost, and have mastered the art of sudden ambushes and elaborate traps. They utilise adaptive camouflage fields to elude and disorient their foes.
A unit with the tenet receives the benefit of cover, even while in the open. A unit with this tenet that moves for any reason loses the benefit of this tenet until the start of its next Movement phase.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Devastating Counter-Strike: Commander O’Shovah’s mastery of Mont’ka has bled into the martial culture of the Farsight Enclaves. Its warriors are experts in the deadly art of engaging the enemy in close confines.
Re-roll wound rolls of 1 for models with this tenet for shooting attacks against enemy units that are within 6" of the firing model. In addition, when resolving an attack made with a ranged weapon by a model with this tenet against an enemy unit within 12", treat that enemy unit as having one more markerlight counter than it actually has.
  • Sa'cea Sept - Calm Discipline: The Fire Warriors of the densely populated Sa’cea Sept train extensively for the close-range hell of city combat, learning the vital importance of fire discipline and combined arms.
Add 1 to the Leadership characteristic of models with this tenet. In addition, in the Shooting phase you can re-roll a single failed hit and wound roll when a unit with this tenet shoots.
  • T'au Sept - Coordinated Fire Arcs: The rigorously drilled Fire Warriors of T’au Sept utilise overlapping fields of fire to envelop charging enemies in a kill-storm of searing pulse energy.
When a unit with this tenet uses their For the Greater Good special rule, or when they fire Overwatch whilst they are within 6" of another friendly T'au Sept unit, a 5 or 6 is required for a successful hit roll, irrespective of the firing model’s Ballistic Skill or any modifiers.
  • Vior’la Sept - Strike Fast: The Commanders of Vior’la harness their warriors’ fiery temperament by embracing a highly mobile and aggressive form of warfare, taking the fight to the heart of the enemy.
If a unit with this tenet Advances, it treats all Rapid Fire weapons it is armed with as Assault weapons until the end of the turn (e.g. a Rapid Fire 1 weapon is treated as an Assault 1 weapon). In addition, models with this tenet do not suffer the penalty to their hit rolls for Advancing and firing Assault weapons.

Custom Sept Tenets[edit]

If your chosen sept does not have an associated Sept Tenet in Codex: T’aus: /tg/'s 8th Edition, you can create its Sept Tenet by selecting two rules from the following list:

  • Advanced Power Cells: Some septs have relatively small populations, and rely more heavily on drones to support them in battle. Many upgrade their faithful helpers to this end.
Drones models with this tenet have a Move characteristic of 10".
  • Dedication to the Cause: The Greater Good is a cause greater than any T’au or even any caste. It is the perfect ideal, one worth not only fighting for but laying down one’s life for.
Add 1 to the Leadership characteristic of models with this tenet. In addition, roll a die each time a model with this tenet suffers a wound or a mortal wound; on a 6 that wound is not lost.
  • Gifted Pilots: Mastery of battle tanks and battlesuits is seen as the mark of a true warrior by the T’au of this sept.
If, in your Movement phase, a Vehicle or Battlesuit model with this tenet does not move or moves a distance less than half its Move characteristic, until the end of the turn, when resolving an attack made with a ranged weapon by that model, re-roll wounds roll of 1.
  • Hardened Warheads: Any enemy of the T’au Empire soon learns to fear its incredible firepower. Some septs take this to the extreme, utilising even more formidable missile systems.
When resolving an attack made with a weapon from the Missile Weaponry list by a model with this tenet, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of that weapon by 1 for that attack (e.g. AP 0 becomes AP -1).
  • Hybridised Weaponry: The T’au of this sept are experts in close-quarters fighting, and have customised their weapons with enhanced power packs, grenade launchers and other equipment to make them even more effective.
Add 4" to the Range characteristic of Assault and Grenade weapons models with this tenet are equipped with. In addition, In addition, when resolving an attack made with an Assault or Grenade weapon by a model with this tenet against an enemy unit within 12", re-roll all hit rolls of 1.
  • Manoeruvering Thrusters: The battlesuit pilots of some septs use specialised thrusters to dart in and out of combat, engaging the enemy at extremely close range before withdrawing at speed.
After having made a shooting attack, a Jet Pack unit with this tenet can Advance as if it was the Movement phase. In addition, it can Advance when it Falls Back.
  • Soldiers in Arms: The academies of the Fire caste emphasise coordination in battle. The Fire Warriors of some septs take this further than others, working together in perfect synergy.
Increase the range of the For the Greater Good special rule to 12" for units with this tenet.
  • Sophisticated Command Net: Efficiency is always strived for by the T’au. To make every shot count, the vehicle crews of this sept use an advanced communications net to know where markerlights will be placed ahead of time.
When resolving an attack made by a Vehicle model with this tenet against a unit that has one or more markerlight counters, re-roll wound rolls of 1.
  • Stabilisation Systems: The threats that stand against the T’au Empire are myriad. To defeat them requires speed and firepower in equal measure.
When resolving an attack made with a ranged weapon by a Battlesuit model with this tenet, that model does not suffer the penalty for moving and firing Heavy weapons or Advancing and firing Assault weapons.
  • Turbo-jets: The T’au of some septs relish the immense manoeuvrability of their battlesuits more than others, and equip them with advanced jets.
Roll two dices and pick the highest one when advancing with a Jet Pack unit with this tenet. In addition, add 2" to the Move characteristic of Jet Pack models with this tenet.
  • Up-gunned: On battlefield after battlefield, the burst cannon has proven its worth against uncounted foes. Able to slaughter light infantry with ease, many T’au upgrade the weapon to be capable of punching through armoured targets.
When resolving an attack made with a weapon from the Burst Weaponry list by a model with this tenet, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of that weapon by 1 for that attack (e.g. AP 0 becomes AP -1).

Stratagems[edit]

Universal[edit]

  • Aerial Targeting (1 CP): Air caste pilots sweep over the battlefield, identifying prime targets for destruction.
Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase. Select one enemy unit. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made with a ranged weapon by a model from your army against that unit, treat that unit as having one more markerlight counter than it actually has for that attack.
  • Ambushing Predators (1 CP): Kroot are fierce predators who have learned over millennia the most effective ways to hunt for prey.
Use this Stratagem in your opponent’s Charge phase. Select one KROOT unit from your army. Until the end of that phase, that unit can perform a Heroic Intervention as if it were a CHARACTER. In addition, if that unit performs a Heroic Intervention in that phase it can do so if there are any enemy units within 6" of them instead of 3", and when doing so can move up to 6" instead of 3".
  • Automated Repair System (2 CP): Nanite repair drones swarm over the damaged battlesuit or vehicle, knitting together ruptured composite plating and repairing vital life-support systems.
Use this Stratagem at the start of any turn. Pick a VEHICLE or BATTLESUIT model from your army. That model regains D3 lost wounds. You can only use this Stratagem once per turn.
  • Branched Nova Charge (1 CP): This prototype power router floods the intense energy generated by a nova reactor to multiple engine systems.
Use this Stratagem when you choose to use a XV104 RIPTIDE BATTLESUIT, XV107 R'varna Battlesuit, XV109 Y'vahra Battlesuit or KX238 Ta'unar Diplomacy Armour’s Nova Reactor. You may choose two effects from those listed rather than one.
  • Breach and Clear! (1 CP): Breacher Teams excel at clearing enemy-held structures with blinding photon grenades and disciplined bursts of pulse fire.
Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, before a BREACHER TEAM from your army shoots at an enemy unit that is receiving the benefit of cover. The Breacher Team re-rolls failed wound rolls against the enemy unit until the end of this phase.
  • Command and Control Node (1 CP): The Commander’s AI-networked transition system generates firing arcs and enhanced strike-patterns, feeding this raw data to nearby battlesuit teams.
Use this Stratagem at the start of your Shooting phase. Pick a <SEPT> COMMANDER from your army. That Commander may not shoot this phase, but one <SEPT> BATTLESUIT unit from your army that is within 6" of that Commander may re-roll failed wound rolls this phase.
  • Coordinated Engagement (2 CP): T’au combined arms groups are called Hunter Cadres for good reason. Working in close coordination, they hunt and destroy the most dangerous enemy targets.
Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase. Select one XV8 CRISIS BATTLESUITS or XV8 CRISIS BODYGUARDS unit from your army, and select one enemy unit. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made by a model in that XV8 CRISIS BATTLESUITS or XV8 CRISIS BODYGUARDS unit against that enemy unit, treat that enemy unit as having 5 markerlight counters.
  • Deadly Aim (1 CP): Careful programming allows Sniper Drones to identify the weakest points in enemy armour.
Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when an MV71 SNIPER DRONES unit from your army is chosen to shoot with. Until the end of that phase, the Armour Penetration characteristic of longshot pulse rifles models in that unit are equipped with is improved by 1 (e.g. AP 0 becomes AP -1). In addition, until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made with a longshot pulse rifle by a model in that unit against a unit that is within half range, the Armour Penetration characteristic of that weapon is improved by a further 1 for that attack.
  • Emergency Dispensation (1 CP/3 CP): Multiple advanced prototypes and ultra-rare technologies have been provided for the war effort by Ethereal decree.
Use this Stratagem before the battle. Your army can have one extra Signature System for 1 CP, or two extra Signature Systems for 3 CPs. All of the Signature Systems that you include must be different and be given to different T’AU EMPIRE CHARACTERS. You can only use this Stratagem once per battle.
  • EMP Grenade (1 CP): This device emits an intense electrostatic field capable of overloading vital computer systems.
Use this Stratagem when a T’AU EMPIRE model from your army is chosen to throw a photon grenade at an enemy VEHICLE unit. Only make a single hit roll with the weapon this phase; if it hits, the target suffers D3 mortal wounds.
  • Fail-safe Detonator (1 CP): The battlesuits of high-value T’au operatives are equipped with a fail-safe self-destruct algorithm, ensuring that the pilot cannot be taken alive for interrogation.
Use this Stratagem when a BATTLESUIT unit from your army is destroyed in the Fight phase, before removing the last model. Instead of rolling for Emergency Ejection Protocols, roll a dice for each unit (friend or foe) within 3" of that model. On a 4+ that unit suffers one mortal wound.
  • Modulated Weaponry (1 CP): The T’au never cease working to maximise the power of their weapon systems, always enhancing their arsenal.
Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a <SEPT> model (other than a TITANIC model) from your army is chosen to shoot with. Until the end of that phase, do not roll to determine the Type characteristic of Heavy weapons that model is equipped with; they have their maximum values (e.g. a Heavy D6 weapon makes 6 shots).
  • Multi-spectrum Sensor Suite (1 CP): The battlesuit’s integrated sensor suite scans multiple ranges on the electromagnetic spectrum, analysing telemetric data and feeding optimised firing solutions to the pilot.
Use this Stratagem before a BATTLESUIT unit from your army shoots. Enemy units cannot claim the benefit of cover against shots made by this unit this phase.
  • Neuroweb System Jammer (2 CP): This device emits an intense electrostatic jamming field, causing the enemy’s weapons to malfunction.
Use this Stratagem at the start of the enemy Shooting phase. Each time an enemy unit that is within 12" of a BATTLESUIT COMMANDER from your army makes a hit roll of 1, that unit suffers 1 mortal wound.
  • Orbital Ion Beam (3 CP): A kor’vattra cruiser in high orbit unleashes a pulse from an immense ion cannon, engulfing the target in white-hot energy.
Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase if a T’AU EMPIRE COMMANDER from your army did not move or use their Manta Strike ability in the preceding Movement phase. Pick a point on the battlefield that can be seen by that model; each friendly or enemy model within 3" of that point immediately suffers 3D3 mortal wounds, each friendly or enemy model within 6" of that point immediately suffers 2D3 mortal wounds and finally each friendly or enemy model within 9" of that point immediately suffers D3 mortal wounds.
  • Point-blank Volley (1 CP): Some T’au perform complex drills in which they train to operate their weapons at extremely close range.
Use this Stratagem at the start of your Shooting phase. Select one <SEPT> unit from your army that is within 6" of an enemy unit. Until the end of that phase, add 1 to wound rolls for pulse blasters, pulse carbines and pulse rifles models in that unit are equipped with.
  • Point Defense Targeting Relay (1 CP): Automated subroutines direct this vehicle’s secondary weapon systems towards encroaching enemies.
Use this Stratagem when an enemy unit declares a charge against a VEHICLE unit from your army. When your unit fires Overwatch this phase, a 5 or 6 is required for a successful hit roll, instead of only 6.
  • Positional Relay (2 CP): Zeroing in on the pulse flares of a Recon Drone, T’au reinforcements strike their target drop zone with unerring accuracy.
Use this Stratagem at the start of your Movement phase. Pick a <SEPT> MB3 Recon Drone from your army. One of your <SEPT> units that has been set up in a Manta hold can perform a low-altitude drop instead of a Manta strike. Set up the unit wholly within 6" of the MB3 Recon Drone.
  • Promising Pupil (1 CP): The Fire caste academies imbue in all Fire Warriors the importance of raising up the particularly skilled of their number, for the Greater Good.
Use this Stratagem before the battle, after nominating your Warlord. Select one <SEPT> CHARACTER model from your army that does not have a Warlord Trait and determine one Warlord Trait for it; it is regarded as your Warlord for the purposes of that Warlord Trait. Each Warlord Trait in your army must be unique (if randomly generated, re-roll duplicate results).
  • Pulse Onslaught (1 CP): Where the situation calls for it, Breacher Teams can overcharge their pulse blasters.
Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a BREACHER TEAM unit from your army is chosen to shoot with. Until the end of that phase, the Range characteristics of the ‘Close range’ and ‘Medium range’ profiles for pulse blasters models in that unit are equipped with are increased to 15".
  • Rain of Fire (1 CP): As Vespid Stingwings fly around the battlefield, they pour fire on unprotected enemies below.
Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a VESPID STINGWINGS unit from your army is chosen to shoot with. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made with a ranged weapon by a model in that unit, if that unit was set up on the battlefield using the Plunge from the Sky ability that turn, you can re-roll the hit roll.
  • Recon Sweep (1 CP): Pathfinders are the eyes and ears of the T’au war machine, always operating ten steps ahead of the foe.
Use this Stratagem at the start of your Shooting phase. Select a PATHFINDER TEAM from your army. Add 2D3" to that unit's movement characteristic it but cannot shoot or charge this turn.
  • Repulsor Impact Field (1 CP): Detecting an incoming enemy assault, the pilot’s battlesuit unleashes a hammer-pulse of kinetic energy strong enough to shatter bone.
Use this Stratagem after an enemy unit successfully charges a BATTLESUIT unit from your army. Roll a dice for each model in the enemy unit within 3" of your unit. On a 6 that model suffers a mortal wound.
  • Seasoned Sniper (1/2 CP): Possessed of a calm only veterans wield, this leader singles out priority targets.
Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase. Select one Cadre Fireblade model from your army. Until the end of that phase, ranged weapons that model is equipped with can target a Character unit even if it is not the closest enemy unit. Instead of a Cadre Fireblade, you can pick a Commander instead; if so, this Stratagem costs 2 Command Points.
  • Stimulant Injector (1 CP): Many battlesuits contain an emergency revivification system to bring their injured pilot back from the brink of death.
Use this Stratagem at the start of any turn. Choose a BATTLESUIT model from your army with a Wounds characteristic of 10 or more. Until the end of this turn, use the top row of the model’s damage table, regardless of how many wounds it has left. This ends immediately if the model is reduced to 0 wounds.
  • Support Turret Replacement (1 CP): Field-logistics drones swoop down from above, bearing a replacement support turret in an underslung grav-harness.
Use this Stratagem at the end of your Movement phase. Pick a friendly Fire Warriors or Gue'vesa unit whose DS8 Tactical Support Turret has been destroyed. You may immediately set up a new DS8 Tactical Support Turret in unit coherency with the unit as described in their DS8 Tactical Support Turret ability.
  • Sworn Bodyguards (1 CP): Crisis Bodyguards rush to the aid of their charge, ready to fight hand-to-hand if necessary to protect them.
Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a <SEPT> XV8 CRISIS BODYGUARDS unit from your army is chosen to fight with. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made with a melee weapon by a model in that unit whilst a friendly <SEPT> CHARACTER unit is within 3" of that model’s unit, you can re-roll the hit roll and you can re-roll the wound roll.
  • Uplinked Markerlight (1 CP): Some markerlights are uplinked directly into the T’au command network, enabling a much faster and more accurate tactical targeting support.
Use this Stratagem after an enemy unit has been hit by a markerlight fired by a model from your army. Place D3+1 markerlight counters next to that unit instead of only 1.
  • Wall of Mirrors (1 CP): The T’au Stealth Cadres utilise interwoven obfuscation fields and wide-band refraction beams to mask their deadly advance. This process is known as mesme’j’kaara – the wall of mirrors.
Use this Stratagem at the start of your Movement phase. Pick a <SEPT> XV25 STEALTH BATTLESUITS unit from your army that is within 6" of a <SEPT> XV95 GHOSTKEEL BATTLESUIT from your army. You may immediately remove the Stealth Battlesuits unit from the battlefield and set it up again, anywhere within 12" of that Ghostkeel Battlesuit and more than 9" from any enemy models. Note that this does not count as Falling Back if the Stealth Battlesuits unit was within 1" of an enemy unit when it was removed.
  • Wisdom of the Many (1 CP): The wisest of the T’au Ethereals know how powerful the combined strength of the four castes can be.
Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase. Select one ETHEREAL unit from your army. Until the end of that phase, that unit can invoke one additional elemental power using its Invocation of the Elements ability, so long as that elemental power has not already been invoked by that unit in that phase.

Sept-Specific[edit]

  • Bork'an Sept - Experimental Weaponry (1 CP): Bork’an scientists have distributed the latest prototype weapons amongst their Sept’s Fire caste contingents, optimised to increase range and accuracy.
Use this Stratagem when a Bork'an Sept unit from your army fires a ranged weapon that makes a random number of attacks (e.g. Heavy D6, Heavy 2D6 etc.). You can re-roll one or both the dices used to determine the number of attacks made.
  • Dal'yth Sept - Strike and Fade (1 CP): Dal’yth T’au are experts at harrying and outmanoeuvring their foes, bleeding them with accurate bursts of fire before fading away into the shadows.
Use this Stratagem at the start of your Shooting phase. Pick a Dal'yth Sept unit from your army. That unit may shoot and then immediately move up to 6" as if it were the Movement phase and they cannot Advance as part of this move. In addition, this movement doesn't prevent that unit to benefit from their Sept tenet.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Danger Close (1 CP): Fire Warrior teams of the Farsight Enclaves receive extensive training in close-quarters combat.
Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a Farsight Enclaves BREACHER TEAM or STRIKE TEAM unit from your army is chosen to shoot with. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made with a ranged weapon by a model in that unit against an enemy unit within 12", you can re-roll the wound roll.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Defence in Numbers (2 CP): Farsight ensures that damaged battlesuits are rotated out of combat to preserve his warriors’ lives.
Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase or your opponent’s Shooting phase, when an Farsight Enclaves XV8 CRISIS BATTLESUITS or XV8 CRISIS BODYGUARDS unit from your army is chosen as the target for an attack. Until the end of that phase, when a model in that unit would lose a wound, roll one D6; on a 5+ that wound is not lost.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Drop Zone Clear (2 CP): O’Shovah’s warriors have mastered the art of the drop-zone assault. There are few more imposing sights than a cadre of battlesuits raining from low orbit, jump-jets blazing and cannons spitting death at the helpless foe.
Use this Stratagem at the start of your Shooting phase. Choose a Farsight Enclaves Battlesuit unit from your army that was set up on the battlefield using its Manta Strike ability or performing a low-altitude drop this turn. Add 1 to hit rolls for that unit this phase.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Firestorm (1 CP): In a terrific onslaught, Farsight Enclave flyers rain hell upon their foes, saturating them with heavy fire.
Use this Stratagem at the end of your Movement phase. Select up to three Farsight Enclaves units with the Flyer Battlefield Role from your army. This Stratagem costs 1 additional Command Point for each selected unit. Roll one D6 for each enemy unit within 3" of any of those selected units. On a 4+ that enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Focused Fury (1 CP): T’au officers are often equipped with advanced targeting equipment that identifies weak points in enemy defences.
Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a Farsight Enclaves CHARACTER model from your army is chosen to shoot with. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made by that model, you can re-roll the wound roll.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Fuious Assault (1 CP): Using the powerful thrusters of their huge battlesuits, Farsight’s warriors slam into the fray.
Use this Stratagem in your Charge phase, when a Farsight Enclaves JET PACK unit from your army finishes a charge move. For each model in that unit, you can select one enemy unit within 1" of that model and roll one D6; on a 3+ that enemy unit suffers 1 mortal wound.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Veteran Cadre (1/2 CP): Many of Farsight’s followers have fought in countless battles against myriad foes, sharpening their arts of war for the battles to come.
Use this Stratagem before the battle. Select one Farsight Enclaves XV8 CRISIS BATTLESUITS or XV8 CRISIS BODYGUARDS unit from your army that contains 3 models for 1 Command Point or one Farsight Enclaves XV8 CRISIS BATTLESUITS or XV8 CRISIS BODYGUARDS unit from your army that contains 4 or more models for 2 Command Points. Models in that unit have a Weapon Skill characteristic of 3+ and a Ballistic Skill characteristic of 2+. You can only use this Stratagem once per battle.
  • Sa'cea Sept - Orbital Marker Distribution Uplink (2 CP): Sa’cea Sept has innovated the use of markerlight scatter-flares, dropped from the upper atmosphere by networked Recon Drones to illuminate the greatest concentrations of enemy troops.
Use this Stratagem at the start of your Shooting phase. Pick an enemy unit visible to a Sa'cea Sept Character from your army. That unit and all other enemy units within 6" of it gain a markerlight counter.
  • T'au Sept - Focused Fire (3 CP): T’au Sept doctrine heavily emphasises the massed concentration of fire upon a single target at a time, obliterating each component of the enemy force in succession with a series of unrelenting barrages.
Use this Stratagem after a T'au Sept unit from your army has attacked an enemy unit in the Shooting phase and the attack resulted in the enemy unit losing one or more wounds. Add 1 to wound rolls for attacks made by other T’AU SEPT units from your army that target the same enemy unit this phase.
  • Vior’la Sept - Hot Blooded (2 CP): The daredevil Fire Warriors of Vior’la stray dangerously close to enemy formations in order to maximise the killing power of their pulse volleys.
Use this Stratagem at the start of your shooting phase. Pick a Vior’la Sept Infantry unit from your army. That unit may be chosen to shoot twice this phase, but all models in the unit must target the closest enemy unit each time they do so.

Warlord Traits[edit]

Universal[edit]

  • 1: Precision of the Hunter: The Warlord stalks the deadliest enemy war machines.
Re-roll wound and damage rolls made for your Warlord against enemy Vehicles or Monsters.
  • 2: Through Unity, Devastation: The Warlord is an expert in the application of concentrated fire.
In each of your Shooting phases, you can pick an enemy unit that is visible to your Warlord. Until the end of the phase, each time you make a wound roll of 6+ against that unit for an attack made by a friendly <Sept> unit within 6" of your Warlord, the Armour Penetration characteristic of that attack is improved by 1 (e.g. AP0 becomes AP-1).
  • 3: A Ghost Walks Among Us: The Warlord walks unseen until the moment is right to strike.
When your Warlord Advances, add 6" to their Move characteristic for that Movement phase instead of rolling a dice. In addition, enemy units must subtract 1 from their hit rolls when targeting your Warlord.
  • 4: Through Boldness, Victory: The Warlord favours bold and aggressive action.
If your Warlord is targeting a unit within 12" of it, you can re-roll failed hit and wound rolls made for your Warlord against that unit.
  • 5: Exemplar of the Kauyon: The Warlord has mastered the art of Kauyon, the Patient Hunter.
You can re-roll failed hit rolls for your Warlord as long as they have not moved this turn. If they have moved for any reason, they lose this trait until the start of the next turn.
  • 6: Exemplar of the Mont'ka: The Warlord has mastered the art of Mont’ka, the Killing Blow.
Your Warlord can Advance and still shoot as if they hadn’t moved this turn.

Sept-Specific[edit]

  • Bork'an - Seeker of Perfection: The Warlord seeks mastery in all aspects of warfare.
For each hit roll of 6+ made for your Warlord, add 1 to the wound roll for that attack.
  • Dal'yth - Gunship Diplomat: This Warlord is held in the highest favour by the T’au’s alien auxiliaries.
Add 2 to the leadership characteristic of friendly Kroot and Vespid units within 12" of your Warlord. In addition, whilst within 12" of your Warlord, friendly Kroot and Vespid units gain the For the Greater Good special rule.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Aggressive Tactician: This warlord is always on the attack, striking hard again and again with their forces until the enemy is entirely destroyed. They give no respite and show no mercy, seeing both as weakness.
COMMANDER model only. When this Warlord declares Mont’ka, it affects friendly Farsight Enclaves units within 12" of this Warlord, instead of within 6".
  • Farsight Enclaves - Blooded Through War: Those Commanders who have led a multitude of bloody campaigns have thoroughly earned the trust of their warriors. Such is this bond of loyalty that their troops will courageously follow them into the harshest of battles.
When a Morale test is taken for a friendly Farsight Enclaves unit with the Bonding Knife Ritual ability whilst within 12" of this Warlord, it is automatically passed on a roll of 4+, instead of 6.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Hero of the Enclaves: The Warlord’s very name inspires devotion and awe amongst his warriors.
Your Warlord can perform a Heroic Intervention if they are within 6" of any enemy units after the enemy has completed all their charge moves. Your Warlord can move up to 6" when performing a Heroic Intervention, so long as they end the move closer to the nearest enemy model. In addition, if your Warlord charged, was charged or performed a Heroic Intervention, then until the end of the turn, you can re-roll failed hit rolls made for them.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Master of the Killing Blow: This warlord knows that cutting the head from the snake is a sound battlefield tactic in any war, and they pursue enemy commanders and warlords relentlessly. Once they are successful in their hunt, their enemies’ forces collapse into disarray and are easy prey.
When resolving an attack made by this Warlord against a CHARACTER unit, you can re-roll the hit roll.
  • Sa'cea - Beacon of Honour: This Warlord is a noble and honourable leader, beloved of their troops.
Friendly Sa'cea units within 6" of this model reduce the number of models that flee as a result of a failed Morale test by 1.
  • T'au - Strength of Belief: The Warlord’s unwavering belief in the Greater Good grants them formidable resolve.
Roll a D6 for each wound or mortal wound inflicted on your Warlord; on a 5+, that wound is ignored and has no effect.
  • Vior’la - Academy Luminary: This Warlord was marked for greatness by the exacting Fire caste tutors of Vior’la.
If your Warlord has the Master of War, Volley Fire or Failure is Not an Option special rule, the range of that ability is increased to 12". In addition, if your army is Battle-forged, you receive an additional 1 Command Point.

Specialist Detachments[edit]

Missile Suppression Division (1 CP)[edit]

All units equipped with weapons from the Missile Weaponry list in this Specialist Detachment gain the Missile Suppression Division keyword.

  • Warlord Trait: Shower of Missiles: Select one enemy unit that is visible by your Warlord. Friendly Missile Suppression Division models shooting at that unit consider the Ap of their weapons from the "Missile Weaponry" list as 1 point better.
  • Stratagems:
    • Pint-point Accuracy (1 CP): Use this Stratagem in the Shooting phase. Seeker Missiles fired by friendly Missile Suppression Division models ignor line of sight if targeting units with at least two markerlight counters.

Signature Systems[edit]

Universal[edit]

  • Eliminator Rail Rifle: The Eliminator Rail Rifle is an advanced version of the weapon used by the T'au Pathfinders. Its AI-assisted aiming systems make it a deadly sniper weapon that is able to pick the enemy's commanders amid the heat of battle while preserving manoeuvrability.
Cadre Fireblade only. The Eliminator Rail Rifle replaces the model’s Pulse Rifle and has the following profile:
Weapon Range Type S AP D Abilities
Eliminator Rail Rifle 30" Rapid Fire 1 6 -4 D3 For each wound roll of 6+ made for this weapon, the target unit suffers a mortal wound in addition to the normal damage. This weapon can target Characters even if they are not the closest enemy unit.
  • Multi-sensory Discouragement Array: The Multi-Sensory Discouragement Array was first designed as a non-lethal response to quell rioting civilians. The device resembles a pulsing sensor beacon, and emits both sub-sonic frequencies and scatter-bursts of ultraviolet colour, stunning and nauseating targets and rendering them compliant.
Enemy units within 12" of the bearer subtract 2 from their Leadership characteristic.
  • Onager Gauntlet: Onager gauntlets were developed during the Damocles Crusade to counter the massed heavy armour spearheads of the Imperium. Armed with such a weapon, a warrior could punch straight through the thick armour of a tank. Though the technology proved successful, the casualty rate amongst bearers was extremely high, and of the original twelve prototypes, only one remains.
Battlesuit Commander only.
Weapon Range Type S AP D Abilities
Onager Gauntlet Melee Melee 10 -4 D6 Each time the bearer fights, it can make one (and only one) attack with this weapon.
  • Puretide Engram Neurochip: Commander Puretide was undoubtedly the most gifted T’au war leader of all time. The T’au were unwilling to lose his tactical and strategic brilliance, and upon his death, his mind was scanned and his accumulated memories committed to a massive hologram on his birth world of Dal’yth. A sliver of that genius has been crafted into a bio-chip. When surgically implanted into the brain of a Fire caste commander, the bearer can access much of the wisdom of Puretide himself, drawing upon a great reservoir of tactical acumen.
Once per turn, you can re-roll a single hit roll, wound roll or damage roll made for the bearer, or a friendly <Sept> unit within 6" of the bearer. In addition, if your army is Battle-forged and the bearer is on the battlefield, roll a D6 each time you or your opponent use a Stratagem; on a 6 you gain a Command Point.
  • Seismic Destabiliser: Designed to undermine fortified positions and drive enemy soldiers from cover, the Seismic Destabiliser emits an ultra-low resonating frequency that causes localised earth tremors. The targeted structure is riven by a spider’s web of fractures, and any garrisoned troops must evacuate or risk being buried under tonnes of rubble.
At the start of each Shooting phase, you may either pick an enemy Infantry unit claiming the benefit of cover, or a Building, within 12" of the bearer. If you picked a Building, it suffers D6 mortal wounds. If you picked an Infantry unit, roll a dice for each model in the unit. For each roll of 5+, that unit suffers a mortal wound.
  • Solid-Image Projection Unit: The tragic demise of Supreme Ethereal Aun’Va led the Ethereal High Council to assign several science divisions to the development of portable defensive technologies. A recent innovation is the solid-image projection unit. This miniaturised holowave-emitter drone projects beams of so-called ‘heavy light’, forming an utterly convincing illusory image that is solid to the touch, while simultaneously masking the true target with an advanced refraction field.
Ethereal with Hover Drone only. Once per phase, when an enemy unit declares the bearer as the target of a charge, you may move the bearer up to 8" before the charge roll is made.
  • Supernova Launcher: The Supernova Launcher was developed during the bloody fighting against Hive Fleet Gorgon. Unable to get close enough to effectively deploy anti-armour ordnance against the Tyranids’ deadliest bioorganisms, Earth caste scientists adapted several fragmentation launchers to hurl experimental plasma grenades. Launched high into the air, these projectiles drop amongst the enemy and explode in a coruscating fireball that evaporates metal and flesh alike.
Model with Airbursting Fragmentation Projector only. The Supernova Launcher replaces one of the model’s Airbursting Fragmentation Projector and has the following profile:
Weapon Range Type S AP D Abilities
Supernova Launcher 18" Assault D6 6 -2 2 This weapon can target units that are not visible to the bearer.

Sept-Specific[edit]

  • Bork'an Sept - Plasma Accelerator Rifle: The Plasma Accelerator Rifle is one of the deadliest inventions from Bork’an’s renowned science divisions, blending pulse-induction technology with a high-yield plasma generator. The result is a long-range armour-piercing weapon that is highly effective against both infantry and light vehicles.
Bork'an Sept model with Plasma Rifle only. The Plasma Accelerator Rifle replaces one of the model’s Plasma Rifles and has the following profile:
Weapon Range Type S AP D Abilities
Plasma Accelerator Rifle 30" Rapid Fire 1 7 -3 2 -
  • Dal'yth Sept - Dynamic Mirror Field: Commanders hailing from Dal’yth prefer stealth and subterfuge to overt aggression, and their demands for improved camouflage technology have led to the development of the Dynamic Mirror Field. This advanced prototype is based upon the refraction technology utilised to such tremendous effect by Ghostkeel battlesuits, adapted for alternative armour chassis. Armour nodes project multiple light-distortion fields, creating false images of the bearer to draw enemy fire.
Dal'yth Sept model only. Your opponent must subtract 1 from hit rolls that target the bearer.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Fusion Blades: This deadly innovation was first created by the third Commander Brightsword, and refined over the following decades by the Earth caste division of the Farsight Enclaves. Fusion blades resemble modified versions of the familiar T’au fusion blaster. However, when the firing impulse is activated, each weapon unleashes a continuous beam of volatile energy that extends from the muzzle of the weapon like a shining sword of pure light. Fusion blades are intensely powerful but drain a battlesuit’s energy reserves at a prodigious pace, and so must be utilised sparingly.
Farsight Enclaves model with at least two fusion blasters only. The Fusion Blades replace two of the model’s fusion blasters and have the following profile:
Weapon Range Type S AP D Abilities
Fusion Blades (Ranged) 18" Assault 2 8 -4 D6 If the target is within half the weapon’s range, roll two dice when inflicting damage and discard the lowest result.
Fusion Blades (Melee) Melee Melee 8 -4 D6 Each time the bearer fights, it can make two (and only two) attacks with this weapon. Roll two dice when inflicting damage and discard the lowest result.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Seismic Fibrillator Node: On his adopted home planet of Vior’los, O’Shovah bested the Ork Warlord Grog by turning the elements against him. Instrumental in these victories was the Seismic Fibrillator Node, an invention of Earth caste scientist O’Vesa. This disc-like device emits resonant frequencies of such power that they cause localised earth tremors of great magnitude.
Farsight Enclaves model only. Once per battle, at the start of your opponent’s turn, you can choose to activate this Relic. If you do, pick an enemy unit within 48" of the bearer, other than a Character, and roll a D6. On a 2+ that unit suffers that many mortal wounds. Then roll a D6 for each enemy unit within 6" of that unit; on a 4+ the unit being rolled for suffers D3 mortal wounds.
  • Farsight Enclaves - Talisman of Arthas Moloch: The artefact world of Arthas Moloch was little more than a devastated wasteland when the Farsight Expedition arrived. Yet the T’au recovered a number of strange relics there, amongst them a hexagrammatic talisman. Farsight has seen first hand that this arcane object protects its wearer and those around them from baleful energies, though neither he nor his advisors have the faintest idea of how it does so.
Farsight Enclaves model only. A model with this Relic has a 5+ invulnerable save. A model with this Relic can attempt to block one psychic power in your opponent’s Psychic phase in the same manner as a Psyker.
  • Farsight Enclaves - The Mirrorcodex: After the Damocles Crusade, Farsight applied his genius to unravelling the Imperium’s war doctrine, codifying the main tenets of both the Tactica Imperialis and the Codex Astartes. Farsight attempts the same with every alien species he encounters, incorporating what he learns into his Da’thle’vral, or ‘Mirrorcodex’.
Farsight Enclaves model only. When resolving an attack made by a model with this Relic against a unit that is within 18", you can re-roll failed hit rolls.
  • Sa'cea Sept - Grav-Inhibitor Field: It was Commander O’Jir of Sa’cea who first utilised the Grav-Inhibitor Field during the defence of Laguna Shard against Ork raiders. The gravitic-field generator mounted upon the Commander’s battlesuit unleashed waves of battering kinetic force, disrupting each and every attempt by the be’gel to overwhelm his position.
Sa'cea Sept model only. Enemy units charging this unit or another Sa'cea Sept unit within 3" of this model reduce their charge distance by 3".
  • T'au Sept - Vectored Maneuvering Thrusters: This enhanced movement system can be adapted for both battlesuits and vehicles. It consists of multiple high-output thruster nozzles, each hardwired into the pilot’s neural interface, allowing them to react with startling speed to any changes in the strategic situation.
T'au Sept Jet Pack only. This model may immediately move up to 6" after attacking in the Shooting phase. This move cannot bring this model within 1" of any enemy models.
  • Vior’la Sept - Thermoneutronic Projector: Vior’la weapons developers have focused their efforts heavily on flamer technology, responding to their Commanders’ desire for maximum-impact close-range ordnance. The Thermoneutronic Projector uses volatile gases siphoned from the corona of a neutron star to expel a flame capable of searing through the armour plating of a battle tank.
Vior’la Sept model with flamer only. The Thermoneutronic Projector replaces one of the model’s flamers and has the following profile:
Weapon Range Type S AP D Abilities
Thermoneutronic Projector 10" Assault 2D3 6 -1 2 This weapon automatically hits its target.

Prototype Weapon Systems[edit]

If a T’au Empire Character is your Warlord, rather than giving one of your T’au Empire Character models a Signature System from Codex: T’au Empire: /tg/'s 8th Edition, you can instead select a Prototype Weapons System for one T’au Empire unit from your army. To do so, before the battle begins select one T’au Empire unit from your army, and select a Prototype Weapons System from the list below. That Prototype Weapons System applies to the selected unit until the end of the battle. Named characters cannot be given any of the following Prototype Weapons Systems.

  • Accellerated-photon Grenades: Faced with the devastating charges of the Orks and Tyranids, the Earth caste developed photon grenades that detonate with far greater kinetic energy.
Unit with Photon Grenades or Photon Grenades Launcher only. Add the following to that unit's weapons’ special rule: 'In addition, units hit by this weapon cannot Advance and any charge rolls made for those units are halved.'
  • Advanced EM Scrambler: The alien race of the Nin’aenh possessed the uncanny ability to scramble electrical systems with a single touch. Defeated after a brutal war, the Earth caste have worked tirelessly to integrate their abilities with technology.
XV95 GHOSTKEEL BATTLESUIT model only. Enemy units that are set up on the battlefield as reinforcements cannot be set up within 12" of this model.
  • Amplified Ion Accellerator: Developed in secrecy over decades, this enormously powerful new weapons system has already proven its worth against the Necrons of the Sautekh Dynasty.
XV104 RIPTIDE BATTLESUIT model with Ion Accellerator only. This Weapon System replaces an ion accelerator and has the following profile:
Weapon Range Type S AP D Abilities
Amplified Ion Accellerator (Standard) 72" Heavy 6 8 -4 3 -
Amplified Ion Accellerator (Overcharged) 72" Heavy 6 9 -4 3+D3 For each hit roll of 1 made for attacks with this weapon’s overcharge profile, the bearer suffers 1 mortal wound after shooting with this weapon.
  • Annihilator Warheads: Destroyer missiles are rightly named and rightly feared. When fitted with annihilation warheads few foes can stand against their devastating power.
Unit with Destroyer Missiles only. When resolving an attack made with a Destroyer Missile by this model, it always has a damage characteristic of 6.
  • Cross-linked Stabilizer Jets: Hooked indirectly to weapon control sub-systems, these sophisticated stabiliser jets enable a battlesuit’s weapons to work gyroscopically.
Jet Pack unit only. When resolving an attack made with a ranged weapon by a model in this unit, re-roll hit rolls of 1 and re-roll wound rolls of 1.
  • Fusion Obliterator: Developed in response to the Imperium’s immense armoured regiments, the fusion obliterator’s advanced power cells give it a superior range, power and rate of fire.
XV95 GHOSTKEEL BATTLESUIT model with Fusion Collider only. This Weapon System replaces a Fusion Collider and has the following profile:
Weapon Range Type S AP D Abilities
Fusion Obliterator 24" Heavy 3 9 -4 D6 When resolving an attack made with this weapon against a unit that is within half range, roll one additional D6 when inflicting damage with it and discard one of the dice.
  • Gatling Burst Cannon: This burst cannon is augmented with additional power accelerators and recoil absorption modules, enabling it to unleash more firepower with every deadly salvo.
Unit with weapons from the Burst Weaponry list only. Add the following to that unit's weapons’ special rule: 'When resolving an attack made with this weapon, an unmodified hit roll of 6 scores 1 additional hit.'
  • High-capacitance Railgun: This hyper-advanced railgun’s super-conductive electrodes allow for remarkable recharge rates, doubling the weapon’s rate of fire.
TX7 HAMMERHEAD GUNSHIP model with Railgun only. This Weapon System replaces a Railgun and has the following profile:
Weapon Range Type S AP D Abilities
High-capacitance Railgun (Submunitions) 60" Heavy 4D3 6 -1 1 -

  • High-powered Incinerator: Fitted with mechanisms to increase pressure and alter nozzle width, these weapons can unleash torrents of deadly flame that are exceptionally powerful at close range.
Unit with weapons from the Flame Weaponry list only. Add the following to that unit's weapons’ special rule: 'When resolving an attack made with this weapon against a unit that is within half range, add 1 to the wound roll for that attack.'
  • Magna Rail Rifle: Rare magnetic materials discovered by the T’au of the Fourth Sphere Expansion were used to develop this muchimproved version of the rail rifle.
Unit with Heavy Rail Rifle only. This Weapon System replaces each Heavy Rail Rifle models in this unit are equipped with and has the following profile:
Weapon Range Type S AP D Abilities
Magna Rail Rifle 60" Heavy 2 9 -4 D6 When resolving an attack made with this weapon, a wound roll of 6+ inflicts 1 mortal wound on the target in addition to any other damage. When resolving an attack made with this weapon, a damage roll of 1 or 2 counts as 3 instead.
  • Networked Markerlights: These markerlights are integrated with sophisticated tracking AI, allowing for rapid targeting.
Unit with weapons from the Markerlight Weaponry list only. Change the Type of that unit's weapons to Assault 1
  • Reactive Countermeasures: The battlesuit pilot unleashes a storm of fragmentation to impede incoming enemy fire.
Unit with Airbursting Fragmentation Projector or Microburst Fragmentation Projector only. Ranged weapons with an Armour Penetration characteristic of -1 or -2 are treated as having an Armour Penetration characteristic of 0 when resolving attacks against a model with this Weapon System.

Support Systems[edit]

  • Advanced Targeting System: A model equipped with an Advanced Targeting System increases the AP characteristic of all of its weapons by 1 (e.g. an AP of 0 becomes -1, an AP of -1 becomes -2).
  • Counterfire Defence System: A model equipped with a counterfire defence system re-rolls failed hit rolls when firing Overwatch.
  • Drone Controller: <SEPT> DRONE units within 6" of any friendly models equipped with a drone controller may use its Ballistic Skill characteristic rather than their own when shooting in the Shooting phase.
  • Early Warning Override: If any enemy units are set up within 12" of a model from your army equipped with an early warning override as the result of an ability that allows them to arrive mid-battle (i.e. teleporting to the battlefield), then at the end of that phase the model may immediately shoot at one of those units as if it was your Shooting phase, but you must subtract 1 from hit rolls when resolving these shots.
  • Homing Beacon: If there are any friendly models equipped with a Homing Beacon on the battlefield at the end of your Movement phase, one of your <SEPT> units that have been set up in a Manta hold can perform a low-altitude drop instead of a Manta strike. Set up the unit wholly within 6" of that model.
  • Multi-tracker: Re-roll hit rolls of 1 in the Shooting phase for a model equipped with a multi-tracker if it fires all of its weapons at the same target or if the target unit contains 5 or more models.
  • Shield Generator: A model with a shield generator has a 4+ invulnerable save. You cannot take this support system on an XV104 Riptide Battlesuit.
  • Stimulant Injectors: Roll a dice each time a model with a Stimulant Injector suffers a wound or mortal wound. On a roll of 5+, ignore it.
  • Target Lock: A model with a target lock does not suffer the penalty for moving and firing Heavy weapons, or for Advancing and firing Assault weapons. The model can also advance and fire Rapid Fire weapons but must subtract 1 from its hit rolls when doing so.
  • Vectored Retro-thrusters: When a model with Vectored Retro-thrusters Advances, add 6" to its Move characteristic for that Movement phase instead of rolling a D6. Also, during the Assault phase, it can consolidate D6" in any direction after having fired Overwatch (before rolls for charge range are made). You cannot take this support system on units that don't have the Fly keyword.
  • Velocity Tracker: Add 1 to hit rolls for a model with a velocity tracker when it shoots at a unit that can Fly. You cannot take this support system on an XV46 Vanguard Void Suit.

Vehicle Battle Systems[edit]

  • Advanced Targeting System: A model equipped with an Advanced Targeting System increases the AP characteristic of all of its weapons by 1 (e.g. an AP of 0 becomes -1, an AP of -1 becomes -2).
  • Automated Repair System: At the Beginning of each friendly turn, roll a D6 for each vehicle with an Automated Repair System that has less than its original amount of wounds. On a 4+; the model regains 1 wound lost previously in the battle.
  • Blacksun Filter: A model with a Blacksun Filter never suffers any penalties to its hit rolls as a result of special rules such as Night Fighting or Dawn Raid.
  • Decoy Launchers: A model with Decoy Launchers has a 5+ invulnerable save against wounds inflicted by weapons that have bonuses to hit or to wound against targets that can Fly.
  • Disruption Pod: Add 2 to saving throws made by a model with a Disruption Pod when they receive the benefits of cover, instead of 1.
  • Flechette Discharger: At the beginning of the Fight phase, roll a die for each enemy model within 1" of a model with a Flechette Discharger. On a 6+, that model suffers a mortal wound.
  • Point Defense Targeting Relay: A model equipped with a Point Defense Targeting Relay re-rolls failed hit rolls when firing Overwatch.
  • Sensor Spines: A model with Sensor Spines does not suffer the penalty for moving and firing Heavy weapons, or for Advancing and firing Assault weapons.
