Harlequins Special Rules

Most Harlequins belong to a masque and have the <MASQUE> keyword. When you include such a unit in your army, you must nominate which masque that unit is from. You then simply replace the <MASQUE> keyword in every instance on that unit’s datasheet with the name of your chosen masque. For example, if you were to include a Troupe Master in your army, and you decided they were from the Midnight Sorrow masque, their <MASQUE> Faction keyword is changed to MIDNIGHT SORROW and their Choreographer of War ability would then say ‘In the Fight phase, re-roll failed wound rolls for friendly MIDNIGHT SORROW units that are within 6″ of this model.’

In the rules described in this section we often refer to ‘HARLEQUINS units’ and ‘HARLEQUINS Warlords’. This is shorthand for a unit or Warlord that has the HARLEQUINS keyword. Note that other Aeldari, such as the Craftworlds and Drukhari, deviate significantly in terms of organisation and fighting styles. These Aeldari cannot make use of any of the rules or abilities listed in this section, and instead have their own rules. YNNARI is a keyword that some units in this book can gain when taken as part of a Reborn army, as detailed in other publications. If a Detachment includes any YNNARI units, it is no longer a HARLEQUINS Detachment and will not gain either of the abilities listed below.

Defenders of the Black Library: If your army is Battle-forged, all Troops units in HARLEQUINS 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 it. If an enemy unit has a similar ability, then the objective marker is controlled by the player who has the most models within range as normal.

Masque Form: If your army is Battle-forged, all units in a HARLEQUINS Detachment gain a Masque Form, so long as every unit in that Detachment is from the same masque. The Masque Form gained depends upon the masque they are drawn from, as shown in the table on the right. For example, all units in a MIDNIGHT SORROW Detachment gain the Art of Death form. If you have chosen a masque that does not have an associated Masque Form, you can choose the form that best suits the fighting style and battlefield strategies of the warriors that hail from it.

Masque Forms

Midnight Sorrow: The Art of Death

Units with this form can move an additional D6″ when they Fall Back. In addition, units with this form can consolidate up to 6″.

Veiled Path: Riddle-Smiths

At the start of each Fight phase roll two dice and discard the highest result. Until the end of the phase, each time your opponent targets a unit with this form and makes a hit roll that, before modifiers, exactly matches your dice result, that hit roll fails.

Frozen Stars: Hysterical Fury

If a unit with this form charges in the Charge phase, add 1 to their Attacks characteristic until the end of the ensuing Fight phase.

Soaring Spite: Serpent’s Blood

Models with this form that can Fly, or that are embarked upon a TRANSPORT that can FLY, treat all Pistol weapons they are equipped with as Assault 1 weapons during a turn in which they (or the transport they are embarked upon) Advanced. In addition, these models do not suffer the penalty to their hit rolls for shooting Assault weapons during a turn in which they Advanced.

Dreaming Shadow: Sombrae Sentinels

When a unit with this form fails a Morale test, only one model from this unit must flee. In addition, each time a model with this form is slain or flees, roll a D6 before removing that model: on a 4+, that model can either shoot with one of its ranged weapons as if it were the Shooting phase, or make a single attack as if it were the Fight phase.

Silent Shroud: Dance of Nightmares Made Flesh

Subtract 1 from the Leadership characteristic of enemy units while they are within 6″ of any units from your army with this form. In addition, whenever your opponent takes a Morale test for a unit that is within 6″ of any units from your army with this form, they must roll two dice and discard the lowest result.

Pivotal Roles

Each Pivotal Role ability models in your army have must be different.

Troupe Master

If your army is Battle-forged and contains a TROUPE MASTER, you can replace that model’s Choreographer of War ability with one of the following Troupe Master Pivotal Role abilities:

Prince of Light: While a friendly <MASQUE> unit is within 6″ of this model, you can re-roll charge rolls made for that unit. If you could already re-roll charge rolls made for that unit, add 1 to the charge roll instead.

Darknesst’ Bite: Each time this model fights, after it has fought, you can select one enemy unit this model made an attack against. That unit suffers 2 mortal wounds.

Twilight’s Grasp: Each time a melee attack is made by this model against a unit that is not a MONSTER or VEHICLE, an unmodified wound roll of 2+ is always successful.

Shadowseer

If your army is Battle-forged and contains a SHADOWSEER, you can replace that model’s Shield from Harm ability with one of the following Shadowseer Pivotal Role abilities:

Veil of Illusion: While a friendly <MASQUE> unit is within 6″ of this model, when determining if that unit is within range of attacks made by enemy models with ranged weapons, add 6″ to the distance measured. For example, if this unit is 22″ away from an enemy model, for the purposes of shooting, it is treated as being 28″ away. Note that for the purposes of determining if a model is at half range, it is the distance after applying the effects of this ability.

Gloomwake: While a <MASQUE> unit is within 6″ of this model, each time a ranged attack is made against that unit, models in its unit gain the benefit of cover to their saving throw.

Agent of Bedlam: While an enemy unit is within 6″ of this model, subtract 1 from the Attacks characteristic of models in that unit (to a minimum of 1).

Death Jester

If your army is Battle-forged and contains a DEATH JESTER, you can replace that model’s Death Is Not Enough ability with one of the following Death Jester Pivotal Role abilities:

Harvester of Torment: Each time this model shoots, if the target unit contains 6 or more models, each successful hit roll scores 3 hits instead of 1. This is not cumulative with any other rules that cause additional hits.

The Jest Inescapable: Add 12″ to the Range characteristic of ranged weapons this model is equipped with. Each time this model shoots, an unmodified wound roll of 6 inflicts 1 mortal wound on the target in addition to any normal damage and the target does not receive the benefit of cover to its saving throw.

Humbling Cruelty: Each time an attack made by this model against an enemy unit scores a hit, that unit is pinned until the start of your next turn. While a unit is pinned, subtract 2″ from the Move characteristic of models in its unit and it cannot fire Overwatch.

Solitaire

If your army is Battle-forged and contains a SOLITAIRE, you can replace that model’s Blitz ability with one of the following Solitaire Pivotal Role abilities:

Shocking Emergence: During deployment, you can set up this model shimmering instead of placing it on the battlefield. If you do, then at the end of one of your Movement phases you can set up this model anywhere on the battlefield that is more than 9” from any enemy models. Each time a charge roll is made for this model, if it was set up on the battlefield as reinforcements this turn, roll one additional D6 and discard one of the dice.

Chromatic Rush: When this model Advances, do not make an Advance roll. Instead, until the end of the phase, add 6” to the Move characteristic of this model. Each time this model piles in or consolidates, it can move an additional 3”.

Unnatural Acrobatics: Each time an attack is made against this model, subtract 1 from that attack’s hit roll.

These help to reflect the unique strategies and fluid tactics used by the Harlequins on the battlefield.

Great Harlequin: 2 CP

Use this Stratagem before the battle. Select a TROUPE MASTER from your army. That unit gains the GREAT HARLEQUIN keyword and the following ability: ‘Will of the Laughing God: In the Fight phase, re-roll hit rolls of 1 for friendly <MASQUE> units that are within 6″ of this model.’ You can only use this Stratagem once per battle.

No Price Too Steep: 2 CP

Use this Stratagem when a MIDNIGHT SORROW CHARACTER from your army is slain. Before removing the model as a casualty, it can fight as if it were the Fight phase.

Use this Stratagem just before a SOARING SPITE INFANTRY unit consolidates. Instead of moving towards the nearest enemy model, the unit consolidates up to 6″ towards the nearest SOARING SPITE TRANSPORT from your army. If all models in the unit end this move within 3″ of the transport, the unit may immediately embark upon it (if it has sufficient capacity remaining) as if it were the Movement phase (and can do so even if they disembarked from the transport during the same turn).

Use this Stratagem at the start of the first battle round, before the first turn begins. Select up to three HARLEQUINS units from your army that are on the battlefield. Remove them from the battlefield and set them up again. When setting them up, you can use any abilities or Stratagems that would allow them to be set up in a different location during deployment (e.g. Webway Assault).

Murderous Entrance: 2 CP

In addition, if your army is Battle-forged and your Warlord is on the battlefield, roll a D6 each time you or your opponent uses a Stratagem. If the result exactly matches the number of Command Points spent to use that Stratagem, then you gain that many Command Points.

If you wish, you can pick a Masque Warlord Trait from the list below instead of using the Harlequins Warlord Traits table to the left, but only if your Warlord is from the relevant masque.

Mnight Sorrow Nemesis of the Damned:

Each hit roll of 6+ for your Warlord in the Fight phase scores 2 hits instead of 1. In addition, add 1 to hit rolls made by your Warlord against CHAOS units.

Veiled Path Webway Walker:

During deployment, you can set your Warlord up in the webway instead of placing them on the battlefield. Your Warlord can emerge at the end of any of your Movement phases – set them up anywhere on the battlefield more than 9″ from any enemy units. Furthermore, you can use the Webway Assault Stratagem twice.

Frozen Stars Our Kin Shall Rise Again: 

Roll a D6 each time a model from a FROZEN STARS unit from your army within 6″ of your Warlord loses its final wound; on a 6 that wound is not lost, and the model not slain. This Warlord Trait has no effect if the unit is under the effects of the Webway Dance psychic power.

Dreaming Shadow Warden of the Dead:

Add 1 to any Sombre Sentinels rolls made for DREAMING SHADOW units from your army within 6″ of your Warlord (add 2 instead whilst there are any NECRONS units on the battlefield).

Soaring Spite Skystrider:

Your Warlord can disembark from a TRANSPORT even after it has moved.

Silent Shroud The Final Joke: 

If your Warlord is slain in the Fight phase, roll a D6. On a 2+, the unit that killed your Warlord suffers D3 mortal wounds after it has finished making all its attacks. On a 6, the enemy unit suffers D6 mortal wounds instead.
