  • Despair: 6s to hit automatically wound


All legions are getting 6 warlord traits, 8 relics, and 8 stratagems


Legion traits: (Supposedly apply to all units)


  • -2LD & -1CA @ 9''

  • +1 to advance & +1 to charge

  • Reduce AP1/2 by 1

  • +1 to wound using heavy/grenade against vehicles/buildings/units in cover

  Word Bearers:

  • Charges/Heroic Intervention = reroll hits

  • 5+++ vs MW

  • When using a pistol/assault/melee, 6s to wound cause 1MW (capped @ 3MW per unit)


Black Legion:
