Blood Angels Special Rules

And They Shall Know No Fear: You can re-roll failed Morale tests for this unit.

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 and every model in its unit remained stationary in your previous Movement phase. The firing model is a TERMINATOR , BIKER, or DREADNOUGHT. 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 unit 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.

Blood Rage: You can add 1 to this unit’s Attacks characteristic for the duration of the Fight phase if it charged in the preceding Charge phase. In addition, roll a D6 each time this unit loses a wound. On a 6 the wound is ignored and has no effect.

Savage Echoes: Whilst the Assault Doctrine is active, if a unit with this ability makes a charge move, is charged or performs a Heroic Intervention, add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of models in that unit until the end of the turn (note that this is cumulative with the bonus these models receive from the Shock Assault ability).

If your army is Battle-forged, Troops units in BLOOD ANGELS Detachments and Blood Angels successor Chapter Detachments (that is, any Detachment which only includes units from that successor Chapter) gain the Defenders of Humanity ability. In addition, INFANTRY, BIKER and DREADNOUGHT units (other than SERVITOR units) in BLOOD ANGELS Detachments and Blood Angels successor Chapter Detachments gain The Red Thirst ability.

The Red Thirst: In any turn in which a unit with this ability charged, was charged or made a Heroic Intervention, you may add 1 to its wound rolls in the Fight phase.

Defenders of Humanity: 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.

Combat Doctrines

Models in this unit gain a bonus depending on which combat doctrine is active for your army (see below). If you have a Battle-forged army, units only benefit from this bonus if every unit from your army has this ability (excluding SERVITOR and UNALIGNED units). This bonus is not cumulative with any other rules that improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of a weapon (e.g. Bolts of Judgement). At the start of the battle, the Devastator Doctrine is active. A combat doctrine remains active for the duration of the battle, though you can change which combat doctrine is active once at the start of each battle round after the first, as follows: If the Devastator Doctrine was active during the previous battle round, you can change it so that the Tactical Doctrine is now active. If the Tactical Doctrine was active during the previous battle round, you can change it so that the Assault Doctrine is now active.

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. For example, AP 0 becomes AP -1.

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. For example, AP 0 becomes AP -1.

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. For example, AP 0 becomes AP -1.
