Black Templars Special Rules

An ADEPTUS ASTARTES Detachment is one that only includes models with the ADEPTUS ASTARTES keyword. ADEPTUS ASTARTES Detachments gain the Company Command ability. ADEPTUS ASTARTES units the ADEPTUS ASTARTES Detachments gain the Chapter Tactics ability. Troops units in ADEPTUS ASTARTES Detachments gain the Objective Secured ability.

Chapter Tactics: All ADEPTUS ASTARTES units with this ability, and all the models in them, gain a Chapter Tactic so long as every unit in their Detachment is from the same Chapter. The tactic gained depends upon which Chapter they are from. If your Chapter does not have an associated Chapter Tactic, you must instead select Successor Tactics for them.

Angels of Death: This unit has the following abilities: And They Shall No Fear, Bolter Discipline, Shock Assault, and Combat Doctrines.

And They Shall Know No Fear: Each time a Combat Attrition test is taken for this unit, ignore any or all modifiers.

Bolter Discipline: Instead of following the normal rules for Rapid Fire weapons, models in this unit firing Rapid Fire bolt weapons make double the number of attacks if any of the following apply: The firing model’s target is within half the weapon’s maximum range. The firing model is INFANTRY (excluding Centurion models) and every model in its unit remained stationary in your previous Movement phase. The firing model is a TERMINATOR or BIKER. For the purposes of this ability, a Rapid Fire bolt weapon is any bolt weapon with the Rapid Fire type. A bolt weapon is any weapon whose profile includes the word ‘bolt’ (boltgun, bolt rifle, storm bolter, combi-bolter, hurricane bolter, etc.). Rules that apply to bolt weapons also apply to the boltgun profile of combi-weapons and and Relics that replace bolt weapons.

Shock Assault: If this makes a charge move, is charged or performs a Heroic Intervention, add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of models in this unit until the end of the turn.

Combat Doctrines: If your army is Battle-forged and if every unit from your army has this ability (excluding Servitor and Unaligned units), this unit gains a bonus (see below) depending on which combat doctrine is active for your army, as follows: During the first battle round, the Devastator Doctrine is active for your army. During the second battle round, the Tactical Doctrine is active for your army. At the start of the third battle round, select either the Tactical Doctrine or Assault Doctrine: until the end of that battle round, the doctrine you selected is active for your army. During the fourth and subsequent battle rounds, the Assault Doctrine is active for your army. Unless specified otherwise, this bonus is not cumulative with any other rules that improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of a weapon (e.g. the Storm of Fire Warlord Trait).’

Devastator Doctrine: The Armour Penetration characteristic of Heavy and Grenade weapons this model is equipped with is improved by 1 whilst this combat doctrine is active.

Tactical Doctrine: The Armour Penetration characteristic of Rapid Fire and Assault weapons this model is equipped with is improved by 1 whilst this combat doctrine is active.

Assault Doctrine: The Armour Penetration characteristic of Pistol and Melee weapons this model is equipped with is improved by 1 whilst this combat doctrine is active.

Chapter Tactics: All ADEPTUS ASTARTES units with this ability, and all the models in them, gain a Chapter Tactic so long as every unit in their Detachment is from the same Chapter. The tactic gained depends upon which Chapter they are from. If your Chapter does not have an associated Chapter Tactic, you must instead select Successor Tactics for them.

Abilities

A BLACK TEMPLARS Detachment is one that only includes models with the BLACK TEMPLARS keyword. Note that such a Detachment is also an ADEPTUS ASTARTES Detachment, as described in Codex: Space Marines, and as such all the ADEPTUS ESTARTES Detachment abilities also apply to that Detachment. In every unit in your army has the BLACK TEMPLARS keyword then every unit that has the Combat Doctrines abilities and is in a BLACK TEMPLARS Detachment Gains the Templar Vows abilities.

Templar Vows: At the end of the Read Mission Briefing step, you can select one of the following Templar Vows.

  • Suffer Not the Unclean to Live
    • Vow: Each time a model in this unit makes melee attack against a non-VEHICLE unit, an unmodified hit roll of 6 automatically wounds the target
    • Passion: Each time this unit is selected to charge, the closest enemy non-AIRCRAFT unit that is within 12″ and not within Engagement Range of any other BLACK TEMPLARS units from your army must be declared as a target of that charge.
  • Uphold the Honour of the Emperor
    • Vow: Models in this unit have 5+ invulnerable save. Each time an attack is made against this unit, an unmodified wound roll 0f 1-2 for that attack fails, irrespective of any abilities that the weapon or the model making the attack may have.
    • Passion: Each time an enemy model makes an attack against this unit, this unit does not receive the benefits of cover against that attack.
  • Abhor the Witch, Destroy the Witch
    • Vow: Once per battle, in your first Movement phase, if there are any enemy PSYKER units in your opponent’s army, until the end of the phase, add 3″ to the Move characteristic of models in this unit. Each time a model in this unit makes a melee attack against a PSYKER unit, re-roll a wound roll of 1
    • Passion: While an enemy PSYKER unit is within 18″ of this unit, this unit cannot perform any actions.
  • Accept Any Challenge, No Matter the Odds
    • Vow: While this unit is within Engagement Range of any enemy units, if a combat doctrine is active for your army, this unit gains the bonus of the Assault Doctrine, instead of the combat doctrine that is active. Each time this unit fights, until that fight is resolved, add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of models in that unit. That is not cumulative with the additional attack granted by the Shock Assault ability.
    • Passion: This unit cannot Fall Back.

Until the end of the battle, all units from your army with the Templar Vows ability gain the effects of the selected vow. Each vow provides a series of abilities as well as passion. Each passion is a drawback that affects Black Templars units while they are under the effects of that vow.

 

Relic Bearers Abilities

If your army includes any BLACK TEMPLARS CHAPLAIN units, you can use the upgrades listed. For each BLACK TEMPLARS INFANTRY or BLACK TEMPLARS BIKER units excluding CHARACTER units from your army, you can select one upgrade from the list below to give that unit. Each upgrade in your army must be unique. Once selected, that upgrade must be allocated to one model in that unit, and that model gains the abilities listed. This model should be distinctive from others in the unit, and before each battle you should make it clear to your opponent which model has the upgrade. Each upgraded unit gains the RELIC BEARERS.

Bones of Mordred:

Each time this model makes a melee attack, an unmodified wound roll of 6 inflicts 1 mortal wound on the target in addition to any normal damage

Holy Orb:

Once per battle, in your Shooting phase, you can select one enemy unit that is within 6″ of and visible to this model. Roll one D6: on a 2+, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. Until the end of the turn, that unit is not eligible to fight until after all eligible units from your army have done so.

Icon of Heinmann:

Each time an attack with an Armour Penetration characteristic of -1 or -2 is allocated to this model, that attack has an Armour Penetration characteristic of 0 instead.

Light of the Emperor’s Grace:

Add 1 to the Leadership characteristic of models in this unit. This model has the following ability: ‘Light of the Emperor’s Grace [Aura]: While an enemy psyker unit is within 12″ of this model, subtract 1 from Psychic tests taken for that unit.’

Sigismund’s Seal:

At the start of the first battle round, select one enemy unit that is on the battlefield. Until the end of the battle, each time a melee attack is made by this model’s unit against that enemy unit, you can re-roll the hit roll and you can re-roll the wound roll.

The Crux Obsidian:

Each time an attack is allocated to this model, subtract 1 from the Damage characteristic of that attack (to a minimum of 1).

Secondary Objectives

If every model in your army has the Black Templars keyword, and your Warlord has the Black Templars keyword you can select secondary objectives or select one of them to be from the Black Templars secondary objectives. Like all other secondary objectives, each of the secondary objectives listed below has a category, and they follow all the normal rules for secondary objectives. 

No Mercy, No Respite

Secondary Objective – Carry Out Your Vows:
You can select this secondary objective if you have selected any Templar Vows. This objective consists of a Progressive component and an End Game component. You can only score victory points for the End Game component for the Templar Vow that was selected at the end of the Read Mission Briefing step and not any other vows that are selected during the battle. 

Progressive component: Score 4 victory points at the end of the battle round if the number of enemy units destroyed by melee attacks made by BLACK TEMPLARS units from your army is greater than the number of friendly BLACK TEMPLARS units that were destroyed during this battle round. You can score a maximum of 12 victory points during the battle from this component.

End Game component: Score 3 victory points at the end of the battle if any of the following apply: 

      • The Suffer Not the Unclean to Live vow was selected before this battle and an enemy WARLORD model was destroyed by a melee attack made by a BLACK TEMPLARS CHARACTER unit from your army during the battle.
      • The Uphold the Honour of the Emperor vow was selected before this battle and a BLACK TEMPLARS INFANTRY unit from your army that is not below Half-strength was in the enemy deployment zone at the end of the battle.

      • The Accept Any Challenge, No Matter the Odds vow was selected before this battle and an enemy unit with a Starting Strength of 20 or more models or an enemy model with a Wounds characteristic of 20 or more was destroyed during the battle.

Purge the Enemy

Secondary Objective – Bathe Your Blade in the Blood of Your Foe:
At the start of the first Command phase, you must select one BLACK TEMPLARS CHARACTER model from your army to issue the challenge and your opponent must select one CHARACTER model from their army accept the challenge. If either player does not have a CHARCTER model, they must instead select their WARLORD. 

Score 5 victory points at the end of the battle for each of the following conditions that have been achieved: 

      • The model that accepted the challenge was destroyed.
      • The model that accepted the challenge was destroyed as the result of a melee attack.
      • The model that accepted the challenge was destroyed as the result of a melee attack made by the model that issued the challenge. 

Battlefield Supremacy

Secondary Objective – Allow Not the Worship of Unclean Idols:

Black Templars Stratagems

As of 10-15-21 Space Marines Stratagems groups are…

  • Core Stratagems
  • Adeptus Astartes Stratagems
  • Black Templar Stratagems

(See tabs for details)

To use a Stratagem you must pay the CPs specified. The same Stratagem cannot be used more than once during the same phase. Stratagems not used during a battle round are exempted from the limit.

Command Re-Roll: 1 CP

Use this Stratagem after you made a hit roll, a wound roll, a damage roll, a saving throw, an Advance roll, a charge roll, a Psychic test, a Deny the Witch test or you have rolled the dice to determine the number of attacks made by a weapon. Re-roll that roll, test or saving throw.

Cut them Down: 1 CP

Use this Stratagem when an enemy unit Falls Back, before any models in that unit are moved. Roll one D6 for each model from your army that is within Engagement Range of that enemy unit; for each result of 6 that enemy unit suffers 1 mortal wound.

Desperate Breakout: 2 CP

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase. Select one unit from your army that has not been selected to move this phase and which is in Engagement Range with at least one enemy unit. Roll one D6 for each model in that unit; for each result of 1, one model in that unit your choice is destroyed. Assuming that unit was no destroyed, it can now attempt to Fall Back, and when doing so its models can be moved across enemy models as if they were not there. Any models in that unit ends its Fall Back move within Engagement Range of any enemy model is destroyed. Assuming the unit is not destroyed, it cannot do anything else his turn, even if it has a rule that would allow it to do so after Falling Back.

Emergency Disembarkation: 1 CP

Use this Stratagem when a TRANSPORT model from your army is destroyed. All units that are embarked within that model can be set up wholly within 6? of the destroyed model when they disembark instead of the normal 3? before the model itself is removed from the battlefield. These units are not affected by the destroyed model’s Explodes ability – instead you must roll one D6 for each model you just set up on the battlefield. Instead of one model that disembarked being destroyed for each roll of 1, one model that disembarked (your choice) is destroyed for each roll of 1 or 2. Units cannot declare a charge or perform Heroic Intervention in the same turn that they disembarked from a destroyed Transport model.
