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.

Hateful 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.

Malicious Volleys: Instead of following the normal rules for Rapid Fire weapons, Rapid Fire bolt weapons used by models in a unit with this ability 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 belongs to an INFANTRY unit and every model from that unit remained stationary in your previous Movement phase. The firing model is a TERMINATOR , BIKER or HELBRUTE. For the purposes of this ability, a Rapid Fire bolt weapon is any weapon with the Rapid Fire type whose profile includes the word ‘bolt’ (e.g. boltgun, inferno boltgun, inferno combi-bolter, etc.).

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.

Thousand Sons Stratagems

As of 07-25-2020 Thousand Sons Stratagems groups are…

  • Core Stratagems
  • Thousand Sons Stratagems
  • Ritual of the Damned 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.
