Thousand Sons Special Rules

Death to the False Emperor: Each time you make a hit roll of 6+ for a model with this ability in the Fight phase, it can, if it was targeting an IMPERIUM unit, immediately make an extra attack against the same unit using the same weapon. These extra attacks cannot themselves generate any further attacks.

Daemonic Ritual: Instead of moving in their Movement phase, any THOUSAND SONS CHARACTER can, at the end of their Movement phase, attempt to summon a TZEENTCH DAEMON unit with this ability by performing a Daemonic Ritual (the character cannot do so if they arrived as reinforcements this turn). Roll up to 3 dice – this is your summoning roll. You can summon to the battlefield one new TZEENTCH DAEMON unit that has the Daemonic Ritual ability and a Power Rating equal to or less than the total result. This unit is treated as reinforcements for your army and can be placed anywhere on the battlefield that is wholly within 12″ of the character and is more than 9″ from any enemy model. If the total rolled is insufficient to summon any unit, the ritual fails and no new unit is summoned. If your summoning roll included any doubles, your character suffers a mortal wound. If it contained any triples, it instead suffers D3 mortal wounds.

If your army is Battle-forged, PSYKER units in THOUSAND SONS Detachments gain the Brotherhood of Sorcerers ability. In addition, Troops units in THOUSAND SONS Detachments gain the Disciples of Tzeentch ability.

Brotherhood of Sorcerers: The ranges of all psychic powers manifested by units with this ability are increased by 6″.

Disciples of Tzeentch: A unit with this ability that is within range of an objective marker (as specified in the mission) controls the 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.
