This bundle gives you everything you need to field the web-exclusive Space Marines Skyhammer Annihilation Force formation. In it, you’ll get two Drop Pods, two sets of Devastator Squads, four sets of Assault Squads and a Tactical Squad, allowing you to build two ten-man Assault Squads and two ten-man Devastator squads - and an exclusive rule sheet detailing the insane firepower and incredible brutality this formation will bring.

Gone to Ground as a result of the Suppressive Fire? special rule, that
Assault Squad can re-roll failted to hit and to wound rolls in the ensuing
