Ynnari Special Rules
The rules presented in this section are intended to be used in addition to those presented in Codex: Craftworlds, Codex: Drukhari and Codex: Harlequins. If your army is Battle-forged, you can include Yvraine, the Visarch, or the Yncarne in any Craftworlds, HARLEQUINS or DRUKHARI Detachment (as defined in their respective codexes), provided that the Detachment does not include any of the following units: any AELDARI named character (other than Yvraine, the Visarch or the Yncarne), any Mandrakes, the Avatar of Khaine, Solitaires or any <HAEMONCULUS COVEN> units. Yvraine, the Visarch and/or the Yncarne can be included in such a Detachment even if a rule (e.g. the Battle Brothers matched play rule) states that every unit in the Detachment must be from the same faction and that faction cannot be AELDARI. If Yvraine, the Visarch or the Yncarne is included in a Craftworlds, HARLEQUINS or DRUKHARI Detachment, you can choose for that Detachment to either remain a Craftworlds, HARLEQUINS or DRUKHARI Detachment, or for that Detachment to become an YNNARI Detachment. If you choose for the Detachment to remain a Craftworlds, HARLEQUINS or DRUKHARI Detachment, then Yvraine, the Visarch and/or the Yncarne can be included in that Detachment without preventing other units from gaining the following Detachment abilities: The Path of War, Craftworld Attributes, Vanguard of the Dark City, Raiding Force, Drukhari Obsessions, Defenders of the Black Library, Masque Forms. Note that Yvraine, the Visarch and the Yncarne do not benefit from any of these abilities themselves. If you choose for the Detachment to become an YNNARI Detachment, then units in that Detachment gain the YNNARI keyword (note that this is not a Faction keyword). The Detachment is no longer considered to be a Craftworlds, HARLEQUINS or DRUKHARI Detachment, and so cannot use their respective Detachment abilities, Stratagems, Warlord Traits, Relics, psychic powers or Tactical Objectives. Also note that you cannot use Craftworlds, Harlequins and Drukhari Stratagems or psychic powers to affect YNNARI units from your army, even though they may have the appropriate keyword (you cannot use a Craftworlds Stratagem to affect an ASURYANI unit from your army that has the YNNARI keyword, you cannot use a psychic power to affect a friendly ASURYANI unit that has the YNNARI keyword etc.).
If your army is Battle-forged, all Troops units in YNNARI Detachments gain the Reclaim the Galaxy ability. In addition, if your army is Battle-forged, all YNNARI units (other than BEASTS, INCUBI and SCOURGE units) in YNNARI Detachments gain the Strength From Death ability.
Reclaim the Galaxy: A unit with this ability that is within range of an objective marker controls it even if there are more enemy models within range of it. If an enemy unit has a similar ability, then it is controlled by the player who has the most models within range as normal.
Strength from Death: When a unit is destroyed, units from your army with this ability draw strength from death until the end of the turn. If a unit is drawing strength from death, that unit fights first in the Fight phase, even if it did not charge. If the enemy has units that have charged, or that have an ability that allows them to fight first in the Fight phase, then alternate choosing units to fight with, starting with the player whose turn is taking place. When resolving an attack made with a melee weapon by a model that is drawing strength from death, and that made a charge move this turn or has another ability that allows it to fight first in the Fight phase, add 1 to the hit roll.
Psykers of the Reborn: Instead of knowing powers from the Runes of Battle, Runes of Fate or Phantasmancy discipline, YNNARI PSYKERS must know their powers from the Revenant discipline
As of 04-20-2020 Ynnari Stratagems groups are…
- Universal Stratagems
- Ynnari Stratagems
(See tabs for details)
As of 08-03-2017 Universal Stratagems are…
Command Re-Roll: 1 CP
You can re-roll any single dice.
Counter-Offensive: 2 CP
Used right after an enemy unit that charged has fought. Select one of your own eligible units and fight with it next.
Insane Bravery: 2 CP
You can automatically pass a single Morale test and must be used before taking the test.
Prepared Positions: 2 CP
At the start of the first battle round, before the first turn begins. Until the end of the first turn, all units from your army that are wholly within your Deployment Zone, other than Titanic units, receive the benefit of cover, even while they are are not entirely on or in a terrain feature. A unit that is already receiving the benefit of cover gains no additional benefit from this Stratagem.
If your army is Battle-forged and includes any YNNARI Detachments (excluding Auxiliary Support Detachments), you have access to the Stratagems shown here, meaning you can spend Command Points to activate them. These help to reflect the unique strategies used by the Reborn on the battlefield. If a Stratagem is used before the battle to upgrade a unit (e.g. Exalted of Ynnead) and you have an army roster, you must note on it which Stratagems are used to upgrade which units.
A Taste for Death: 1 CP
Use this Stratagem in the Shooting or Charge phase, when an enemy unit is destroyed as a result of an attack made with a ranged weapon by an YNNARI model from your army. Until the end of the turn, when resolving an attack made with a melee weapon by a model in that model’s unit, add 1 to the hit roll.
Whispering Spirits: 2 CP
Use this Stratagem in the Morale phase, before a Morale test is taken for an enemy unit within 1″ of any YNNARI units from your army. Until the end of the phase, subtract 2 from that enemy unit’s Leadership characteristic.
United in Death: 2 CP
Use this Stratagem at the start of the Fight phase. Select one REBORN ASURYANI , one REBORN HARLEQUINS and one REBORN DRUKHARI unit from your army. Until the end of that phase, add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of models in those units whilst they are drawing strength from death.
Inevitable Fate: 2 CP
Use this Stratagem at the start of the Fight phase. Select one enemy unit. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made with a melee weapon by an YNNARI unit from your army against that unit, you can re-roll the wound roll.
Acolyte of Ynnead: 2 CP
Use this Stratagem before an YNNARI PSYKER model from your army attempts to manifest a psychic power from the Revenant discipline. Add 3 to the total for that Psychic test if any enemy units were destroyed this phase.
Reborn Together: 1 CP
Use this Stratagem at the start of the Morale phase. Until the end of that phase, add 2 to the Leadership characteristic of YNNARI units from your army whilst they are within 6″ of any other friendly YNNARI units.
Shrine of the Whispering God: 1 CP
Use this Stratagem before the battle. Select up to three YNNARI INCUBI units from your army. Those units gain the Strength From Death ability.
Aretefacts of Death: 1 CP
Use this Stratagem before the battle. Your army can have one additional Relic of Ynnead. All of the Relics your army includes must be different and be given to different models.
Webway Ambush: 1/3 CP
Use this Stratagem during deployment. If you spend 1 CP, you can set up one YNNARI INFANTRY , YNNARI BIKER or YNNARI BEAST unit from your army in the webway instead of placing it on the battlefield. If you spend 3 CPs, you can set up two such units in the webway instead. A unit in the webway can emerge at the end of any of your Movement phases – set it up anywhere on the battlefield that is more than 9” away from any enemy models. This Stratagem can only be used once per battle

Use this Stratagem before the battle, after nominating your Warlord. Select one Ynnari CHARACTER model from your army that is not your Warlord and generate one Warlord Trait for it; it is regarded as your Warlord for the purposes of that Warlord Trait. Each Warlord Trait in your army must be unique (if randomly generated, re-roll duplicate results). You can only use this Stratagem once per battle.
Back from the Brink: 2 CP
Use this Stratagem in any phase, when an YNNARI INFANTRY CHARACTER or YNNARI BIKER CHARACTER model from your army is destroyed. Roll one D6; on a 4+ return that model to play with D3 wounds remaining, placing it as close as possible to its previous position and more than 1″ away from any enemy models. This Stratagem cannot be used on the same model more than once per battle.
The Great Enemy: 1 CP
Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when an YNNARI unit from your army is chosen to fight with. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made by a model in that unit against a SLAANESH unit, you can re-roll the wound roll.
Fire and Fade: 1 CP
