Malal Daemonkin

From 1d4chan

A 40k fandex created by /tg/ in attempts to provide some rules for Malal's lore, what little there is. This is an expansion to Codex: Chaos Space Marines, Codex: Chaos Daemons and Imperial Armor Volume XIII for Warhammer 40k and an expansion for Warriors of Chaos, Beastmen, Daemons of Chaos and Storm of Magic for Warhammer Fantasy. If you wish for fluff describing all of this then refer to the Forces of Malal page.

Malal Sorcery[edit]

Discipline of Malal/Anarchy[edit]

Warhammer 40k 7th edition[edit]

It Should Not Be (Primaris Power): Warp Charge 1. The Psyker stills the Warp around his opponents, creating a horrible feeling of emptiness in those affected. It Should Not Be is a Malediction that targets an enemy unit within 24". That unit must take a morale check or Daemonic Instability test (note that Daemons from the Codex: Khorne Daemonkin must still take a Daemonic Instability test despite not having that rule). If the affected unit is a vehicle then it suffers a Crew Shaken result that cannot be ignored.

  1. Spite: Warp Charge 1. The psyker fills his followers with the will to harm others beyond the point where there is anything to gain from doing so. Spite is a blessing that targets a single friendly unit within 24". Whenever that unit suffers casualties, the unit that caused the casualties suffers a single hit for each wound inflicted. These hits are resolved at the same strength value as the affected units toughness and the same AP as the affected units armor save. When in close combat these hits are resolved after the Initiative 1 step and count towards combat resolution.
  2. Juxtaposition: Warp Charge 1. The psyker releases a contrasting blast of energy that somehow shrouds allies in darkness and blinds enemies with light. Juxtaposition is a Nova power with a range of 6". Any friendly unit hit by Juxtaposition has the Shrouded special rule until the controlling players next game turn. Any enemy unit hit by Juxtaposition must take a blind test.
  3. Weapon Virus: Warp Charge 1. The psyker infects the ranged weapons of the enemy with his malevolent will, causing them to sabotage their wielders. Weapon Virus is a malediction power with a range of 24”. Whilst this power is in effect, all of the target units ranged weapons have the Get’s Hot! Special rule.
  4. Drain Life: Warp Charge 2. The psyker takes a deep breath, sucking the life out of those who stand before him. Drain Life is a Witchfire power with the following profile: R Template S6 AP4 Assault 1. Drain Life causes Instant Death on a To Wound roll of 6. If the casting psyker caused at least one unsaved wound with this power they gain a wound, up to a maximum of 10.
  5. Vortex of Annihilation: Warp Charge 2. A tiny warp breach is created that is so chaotic that not even daemons will dare use if for the risk of getting ripped into nothingness by its entropy. Vortex of Annihilation is a Witchfire power with the following profile: R36", S* AP* Assault 1, Massive Blast. A model hit by this must pass a Strength test (models without a strength value automatically pass) or be removed as a casualty with no saves of any kind allowed.
  6. Schismatic Lance: Warp Charge 3. The Psyker fires a blast of darklight from the palm of his hand. Schismatic Lance is a Beam power with the following profile: R12" S10 AP1 Assault 1, Lance.

Lore of Malal[edit]

Destruction brings Creation (Daemons of Chaos lore attribute): When a Daemon casts a spell from the Lore of Malal that causes one or more unsaved wounds, choose a unit of Hook Horrors or Paradoxes within 12" of the caster and roll a D6 for each wound caused. If it is a unit of Hook Horrors, add 1 model to the unit for each result of 5 or 6. If it is a unit of Paradoxes, add 1 model to the unit for each result of 6. Models are added one at a time to the back rank. If the back rank is full at any point, or the unit has a single rank of at least 5 models, the next model starts a new back rank. Models that cannot be placed (because there isn't enough room, or you do not have sufficient models) are lost. Models created in this way have no upgrades and do not award additional victory points.

Oblivion (Warriors of Chaos lore attribute): Malal is the Renegade God and he blesses those who cause chaos and anarchy with the ability to further cause chaos and anarchy. When a spell from the Lore of Malal is successfully cast, roll a D6, plus one D6 for each model augmented or hexed by the spell (if any). For each result of a 6 rolled, the Wizard's Strength and Attacks are increased by 1 until the start of his next magic phase.

It Should Not Be (Signature Spell; Cast on a 5+): The Wizard stills the Warp around his opponents, creating a horrible feeling of emptiness in those affected. It Should Not Be is a Hex that targets an enemy unit within 24". That unit must take a Panic or Daemonic Instability test. The wizard can choose to extend the range of this spell to 48". If he does so, the casting value is increased to 8+.

  1. Spite: (Cast on a 8+) The Wizard fills his followers with the will to harm others beyond the point where there is anything to gain from doing so. Remains in Play. Spite is an augment spell with a range of 24". Whenever that unit suffers casualties, the unit that caused the casualties suffers a single hit for each wound inflicted. These hits are resolved at the same strength value as the affected units toughness and ignore armor saves. When in close combat these hits are resolved after the Initiative 1 step and count towards combat resolution. The wizard can choose to have this spell affect all friendly units within 12". If he does so, the casting value is increased to 16+.
  2. Juxtaposition (Cast on a 8+): The Wizard releases a contrasting blast of energy that somehow shrouds allies in darkness and blinds enemies with light. Remains in Play. Juxtaposition is both an Augment and a Hex spell that affects all models in the casters unit and models that are in base contact with the casters unit. Allied units have all To Hit rolls made against them suffer a -1 penalty while all To Hit rolls made against affected enemy units gain a +1 bonus.
  3. Drain Life (Cast on a 9+): The Wizard takes a deep breath, sucking the life out of those who stand before him. Drain Life is a direct damage spell that is cast on the Wizard himself. It enables him to unleash a Strength 4 Breath Weapon attack. If this attack causes a single unsaved wound, the caster regains a wound lost earlier in the battle. The caster can increase the power of this spell to Strength 5. If he does so, the casting value is increased to 11+.
  4. Weapon Virus (Cast on a 11+): The Wizard infects the ranged weapons of the enemy with his malevolent will, causing them to sabotage their wielders. Remains in Play. Weapon Virus is a malediction power with a range of 24”. Whilst this power is in effect, all of the target units ranged weapons inflict a hit on their wielder on a To Hit roll of 1. If the weapon does not roll To Hit and instead rolls an Artillery dice, the controlling player rolls two Artillery dice and takes the higher value. If either of the dice are a misfire, no shot is fired and the controlling player rolls on whichever misfire chart they are subject to.
  5. Vortex of Annihilation (Cast on a 15+): A tiny warp breach is created that is so chaotic that not even daemons will dare use if for the risk of getting ripped into nothingness by its entropy. Remains in play. The Vortex is a magical vortex that uses the small round template. Once the template is placed, the player then nominates the direction in which the Vortex will move. To determine how many inches the template moves, roll an artillery dice and multiply the result by 3. Any model touched by the template must pass a Strength test or be slain outright with no saves except Magic Resistance allowed. If the result on the artillery dice is a misfire, centre the template on the caster and roll a scatter dice and a D6. The template moves the number of inches equal to the result of the D6, in the direction shown on the scatter dice (if you roll a Hit!, use the little arrow shown on the Hit! symbol). In either event, in subsequent turns, the Vortex travels in a random direction and moves a number of inches equal to the roll on an artillery dice. If a misfire is rolled in subsequent turns, the Vortex collapses in upon itself and is removed. A particularly brave Wizard can infuse the Vortex of Annihilation with more power, so that it uses the large round template instead. If he does so, the casting value is 25+.
  6. Schismatic Lance (Cast on a 18+): The Wizard fires a blast of darklight from the palm of his hand. Schismatic Lance is a Magic Missile with a range of 36". It causes a Strength 8 hit that has the Multiple Wounds (D3) special rule and penetrates ranks in the same manner as a shot from a Bolt Thrower. Armour saves are not permitted against wounds caused by Schismatic Lance. If the target does not have the Undead, Nekharan Undead or Daemonic special rule, all failed To Wound rolls caused by this spell must be re-rolled.

Daemonic Gifts[edit]

Warhammer 40k 7th edition[edit]

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

The weapons of Malal sap the abilities of their wielders foes, turning their own strengths against them.

Lesser Reward: 0. Parascythe: Melee weapon, enemies struck with this weapon must take armor and invulnerable saves at a -2 penalty (which means that 5+ saves of either type have no effect). This accumulates with other penalties to their saves.

Greater Rewards: 0. Sickle of Ruin : AP4 melee. In each Assault Phase, roll a d3 and select one of the following effects for the rest of the assault phase:

  • 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). This penalty can only be applied to a model once per turn.

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:

  • Banner of Destruction: This banner crafted from a nihilist turns the protections of those it gazes upon against them. A Banner of Destruction is an Icon of Chaos. Once per game, during the Shooting Phase, the Icon bearer may make a shooting attack with the following profile: Range: 24" Assault 12 S:* AP:* Pinning. Hits from this Banner wound equal to the targets best save (for example, a model with a 4+ invulnerable save is wounded on a 4+) and cannot be saved against.

Parasite Tick: The Herald rides a scuttling insect that sucks from the warp reflection of the landscape it strides across.The model receives +1 Strength, +1 Wounds, +1 attacks and its unit type becomes cavalry.

The Portalglyph: Add Hook Horrors to the list of models that may be summoned with The Portalglyph.

Vessel of Xemn'yn'me'X the Void: The Greater Daemon that has become infused into the hull of this war machine is known as Xemn'yn'me'X the Void, a Guardian of Contradictions that was captured and twisted by the other Chaos Gods into its opposite, a being that wishes to protect instead of destroy. Upon being recovered by Malal, it was bound to a cage that will draw it back inside should it's link to the materium be destroyed. Malal will occasionally allow its mortal followers to bind it into a machine of war, it using its powers to bolster the defenses of those around it. Should its vessel be destroyed the daemon briefly reverts back to its original will and will use this moment to destroy what it was bound into. This Legacy of ruin may be taken by a single Chaos Space Marine vehicle at a cost of +15 points or +20 points for a Super-Heavy vehicle. This vehicle has the Fear and Daemonic Possession special rules. In addition, any unit equipped with an Icon of Anarchy within 12" may re-roll any unsuccessful saves. Should a model with this legacy lose its last HP it suffers an Explodes! result on the vehicle damage table. If the model is a Super-Heavy vehicle it suffers a Titanic Explosion instead.

Warhammer Fantasy[edit]

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

Lesser Reward: 0. Parascythe: This large weapon resembles a farming tool and appears to phase through protections both physical and magical as if they aren't there, severing the life of all it strikes. Great Weapon. Attacks made with this weapon cause penalties to Ward Saves as if they were Armor Saves.

Greater Rewards: 0. Sickle of Ruin: Each Sickle of Ruin is crafted from the remains of a permanently slain Greater Daemon or Daemon Prince. The remains try in vain to reform themselves from ambient magic or physical energy. In each Close Combat Phase, roll a d3 and select one of the following effects for the rest of the assault phase:

  • Increase the Strength and Attack values of the wielder by the result (To a maximum of 10).
  • Reduce the Weapon Skill and Initiative of all enemy units in base contact by the result (To a minimum of 1). This penalty can only be applied to a model once per turn.

Daemonic Loci[edit]

Warhammer Fantasy[edit]

  • Lesser Locus of Decimation: The bearer and its unit have the Terror special rule.
  • Greater Locus of Obliteration: The bearer and its unit have the Killing Blow special rule.
  • Exalted Locus of Oblivion: When the bearer or its unit charges an enemy unit within 11" they may only elect to hold as their charge reaction.

Warhammer 40k 7th edition[edit]

  • Lesser Locus of Decimation: Grants the Crusader special rule.
  • Greater Locus of Obliteration: Adds +1 Leadership, and allows a reroll on Daemonic Instability tests once per turn. Keep the second roll even if worse.
  • Exalted Locus of Oblivion: When charging an enemy unit within 6", that unit cannot Overwatch or use Counter Attack.

Malal Deamon Warlord Traits Table[edit]

Warhammer 40k 7th edition[edit]

If your Warlord has the Daemon of Malal special rule it can roll on the table below instead of those in Warhammer 40:000: The Rules or Codex: Chaos Daemons.

  1. Master of the Warp Path: Even the most chaotic Warp Storms can be stilled by this Daemon, allowing itself or its forces to appear exactly where they wish. Before deployment, the Warlord may nominate up to D3 friendly units with the Daemon of Malal special rule. Those units Deep Strike on turn 1 without scattering.
  2. Destroyer: This Daemons mere presence threatens to unwind reality. The Warlord has the Smash special rule. If he already does have Smash, his Smash attacks are resolved at Strength D.
  3. Scourer: This Daemon is completely dedicated to ensuring that nothing but featureless wastelands are left in its wake. Any Blast weapon fired by the Warlord has its size increased by one step (Blasts become Large Blasts, Large Blasts becomes Massive Blasts, Massive Blasts become Apocalyptic Blasts) and Template weapons fired by the Warlord become Hellstorm weapons.
  4. Devourer of Warp-Horrors: The Warp-spawned Horrors that attempt to take advantage of the lapses in concentration of this daemon or its followers will find themselves dragged into its gaping maw instead. As long as the Warlord remains alive, all friendly units with the Daemon of Malal special rule add 1 to their Perils of the Warp rolls. However, every Warp Surge result on the Perils of the Warp table are resolved on the Warlord instead of the casting psyker.
  5. Warp Ripper: The Daemon's proximity causes weapons to strike harder and bite deeper then they otherwise would. The Warlord and all friendly units with the Daemon of Malal special rule within 11" gain the Shred special rule.
  6. Unmaker of the Mind: The Daemon causes even the strongest of wills to become brittle. All enemy units within 11" of the Warlord lose the And They Shall Know No Fear and Stubborn special rules if they have them and replace Fearless with Stubborn (Stubborn does not get lost). If the unit has none of the above rules then it suffers a -1 leadership penalty.

Hellforged Artefacts[edit]

Warhammer 40k 7th edition[edit]

  • Corrupted Teleportarum Beacon: 5 points. Teleporters are dangerous items to use, as their bearer has to enter to warp while using them. This teleporter beacon’s user entered the warp one day... and simply never came out. Nobody knows what happened to the marine who used it, but if you were to ask what happened to one of the Sons of Malice and they were to break their silence to speak, they would simply say that “it is foolish to rely on certainty where the uncertain is concerned." Whenever the bearer of the Corrupted Teleportarum Beacon suffers an unsaved wound, roll a D6. On a 2+ remove the bearer from the battlefield and randomly select an enemy unit. Deploy the bearer of this relic within D6” of that enemy unit, if you roll a 1 then you may deploy the bearer of this relic in base contact with the enemy unit.
  • The Cup of Infinite Propability: 10 points. The Sons of Malice use this chalice to give homage to their dark patron, opening the throats of their victims to fill the chalice with hot, fresh blood. Despite having the blood of thousands of innocents with itself, the cup never overflows or spills a drop. It is said that anyone foolish enough to drink from the cup shall unleash as yet unseen chaos upon reality." Once per battle, the bearer of this Relic may drink the blood of countless slain within to appease the great God of Uncertainty. If so pick two random units from opposing sides. Those units swap places on the battlefield (vehicles will face the same direction they were facing before). Then randomly select another two random units from opposing sides and do the same, never selecting the same unit twice. When one side has had all of its units change location, the other side has any units that were never selected suffer D6 wounds or D3 glancing hits if it's a vehicle unit.
  • The Reality Dissolver: 15 points. A pistol gifted directly from the Sons of Malice’s patron god themselves. Although it may look like a pistol the weapon actually contains a stable Warp portal which fires focused chaos directly from the realm of the gods. Those who are hit by the beam of undiluted unreality are not killed, their existence simply unravels as the laws of the universe simply... fall away. The Reality Dissolver is a ranged weapon with the following profile: R6", S9, AP1, Pistol 1, Melta No Invulnerable saves may be taken against shots from The Reality Dissolver.
  • The Leech Pendant: 20 points. The Leech Pendant is imbued with a stolen locus from each of the other four chaos gods. These loci are almost constantly warring with each other and the dominant locus is the one that is currently empowering the bearer though occasionally the essences will work together so that they all empower the bearer. At the start of each turn. Roll a D6. The Leech Pendant grants one of the following bonuses based on the result of the D6 for that turn. Note that this artefact does not allow the model or unit to join or be joined by daemons without the Daemon of Malal special rule:
  1. Choose one of the results to take effect, with the exception of the last one.
  2. The bearer and its unit gain the Daemon of Nurgle special rule any To Hit roll of 6 inflicted by it has the Poisoned (2+) special rule.
  3. The bearer and its unit gain the Daemon of Khorne and Furious Charge special rules.
  4. The bearer and its unit gain the Daemon of Slaanesh and Move Through Cover special rules.
  5. The bearer and its unit gain the Daemon of Tzeentch special rule and adds 1 to it's invulnerable save roles/ can reroll psychic tests.
  6. The bearer gains all of the above benefits.
  • Ul’O’Cca, The Black Axe: 25 points. This is a Power Axe with the Rending special rule. Ul’O’Ccca rends on a 4+ instead of a 6+.
  • The Silent Screech: 25 points. An Executioners Greatblade taken from a Sister of Silence. The sister was kept alive by her captors and dragged into the warp, and simply left there with her blade.. A normal mortal can survive in the warp because they have a soul, which combines with their mind to generate surroundings and air to breath. A Sister of Silence however, does not have a soul, so when they enter the warp there is simply nothing, effectively leaving the Sister to die in agonizing terror in vacuum. The blade was later retrieved by the Sons of Malice, who then bound a demon into the sword, who was in turn warped by the blades null effect. The result was a weapon who's only desire was to kill those who used the warp, and although the Sisters of Silence eventually hunted down and slayed all the marines who violated their sister, they have so far failed the find the sword. This is a two-handed Power Sword that grants +1 Strength and is AP2. In addition, all Psykers within 12" of the bearer suffer Perils of the Warp on any doubles instead of just double 6's, and suffer double the number of Wounds/Glancing Hits from Perils of the Warp.
  • The Mask of Uncertainty: 25 points. A creature wearing this mask can appear as anything it pleases, adding to the confusion of a tight fight against a mysterious foe. In the Fight phase, roll a die each time the model wearing The Mask of Uncertainty or any unit attacking it scores a hit. On a 4+ the hit is instead scored on the unit which made the attack (unless the attack was made by the bearer of this relic, in that case, the hit is instead reversed on a 5+).
  • The Mind Razor: 30 points. The mind is a sharp tool. From the dawn of mankind, the human brain has cut its way through reality, to shape the world into a more pleasing configuration. The Mind Razor is such a tool for sculpting reality, a blade whose edge is not made of mere metal, but of the pure will of the bearer. Such a blade does not cut by its mere edge though, it cuts because its wielder thinks that it does. The Mind Razor has the following profile: R-, S*, AP2, Melee The Mind Razors Strength is equal to the bearer's Leadership. Enemy units within 6" of the bearer suffer a -1 Leadership penalty.
  • Quantum Tunneling Grenades: 35 points. The secret of space and dimension are no match for the power of the Uncertain One. These grenades are able to traverse the known universe to strike the target behind any defense they could have. Quantum Tunneling Grenades are fired from a launcher and have the following profile: R24", SD6, APD6, Assault 1, Massive Blast This weapon always rolls to wound on a 5+ or better and can be fired on targets outside of the attacking models line of sight.

Malal Daemons Stratagems[edit]

Add these to the list of Stratagems a Battle-forged army that includes any Chaos Daemons detachment can include.

  • Banner of Destruction (1CP): Use this Stratagem before the battle. Choose one of your Malal models with a Daemonic Icon. That icon is upgraded to a Banner of Destruction. In addition to its normal ability, the power of the banner can be used once per battle, at the beginning of any Shooting phase. When used, select a unit within 11". Every model in the unit rolls an armor save, for each save passed, that unit suffers a single mortal wound.
  • Locus of Oblivion (2CP): Use this Stratagem at the start of any charge phase. Select a MALAL DAEMON CHARACTER from your army - until the end of your phase any enemy unit within 6" of the selected character cannot fire Overwatch.
  • Devour (2CP): Use this Stratagem during the fight phase. Every Malal unit regains a lost wound for each wound inflicted.

Kaleb Daark (Lord) 375 Points

Name M WS BS S T W I A Ld Troop Type
Kaleb Daark 4 8 3 5 5 3 7 5 9 Infantry (Special Character)


Equipment: Shield
Magic Items:
  • Dreadaxe: Dreadaxe is a living axe, bearing part of the soul of a Guardian of Contradictions. As the weapon strikes its jaws close, biting deep into the soul-stuff of his victim. As the soul of the victim is sucked out the body shrivels away to almost nothing. If Kaleb Daark inflicts an unsaved wound, Dreadaxe will attempt to drain the victims soul. The victim must take a Leadership test. If the test is failed then the victim is automatically killed (no saves allowed). In addition, the victim's soul feeds Malal, Dreadaxe and Kaleb. The leadership of the victim is then divided by three with any remainder ignored. One third goes to Malal and is ignored for the purposes of the game, one third goes to Dreadaxe, and the last third goes to Kaleb. The points that go into Dreadaxe can be used in the next round of combat only as a 'to wound' bonus. All points are used at once and are not carried over. The points that go to Kaleb are retained in a pool. A maximum of 1 point may be used in any turn to modify any dice rolled by Kaleb by 1.
  • Leech Armor: Kaleb Daark is a pale man with white hair, which is the only visibly apparent affect of the strain from his relationship with Malal. Most of the strain from that relationship comes from the Leech Armor that he wears which drains him in order to toughen itself. Chaos Armor. The Leech Armor grants a 4+ Ward Save and the Magic Resistance (1) special rule. For each wound that Kaleb suffers, his Ward Save suffers a -1 penalty (so if he has two wound remaining he has a 5+ Ward Save and if he has one wound remaining he has a 6+ Ward Save). If Kaleb regains any lost wound for any reason, he loses the penalty to his Ward Save.

  • The Self Is All: What benefits the self benefits all, what harms the self harms all. All models with the Daemon of Malal Special Rule (including Solipsism) within 6" may, at the beginning of the Assault phase, either increase their Strength and Attacks by 1, or decrease the WS and Initiative of any enemy models in base contact by 1 (this penalty can only be applied once per turn). This ability stacks with the effects of a Sickle of Ruin.
  • Out of Sight, Out of Mind, Out of Reality: If the self cannot realize the existence of the non-self, the non-self cannot exist. If a model cannot draw Line of Sight to Solipsism then any attacks made by it cannot harm him (for example, if a blast weapon scatters outside of the model's line of sight onto Solipsism then Solipsism is treated as not having been hit). If Solipsism is in a unit this special rule does not affect the ability for enemy units to harm his unit.

OPTIONS: May take a Parasite Tick - 45 pts
