Rules and Equipment


Supressing Fire: When a model with the Suppressive Fire rule makes an attack with a weapon with the Panic ability, morale checks against the Panic effect are taken with a -2 penalty.

Drones as Vehicle Equipment: When a vehicle is equipped with drones, the drones are considered and operated as part of the vehicle. The vehicles base statistics are used in every respect for the combined unit, althought any weapons or battlesuit systems the drones are equipped with may be operated normally.

By expending an action, the vehicle may detached the drones (and their own equipment) from the vehicle. The drones must enter play within 1" of the base vehicle, and form their own unit.

A vehicle that has detached it's drones may expend an action to attach a number of drones up to it's drone capacity. These drones must be within 1" of the vhicle, and become the vehicles new drone complement in every respect.


Note: A model with a piece of equipment in it's standard wargear will have any stat changes from that equipment already included in it's stat line.

Leather Armour: Grants a model a 6+ armour save.

Flak Armour: Grants a model a 5+ armour save.

Combat Armour: Grants a model a 4+ armour save.

Battlesuit Armour: Grants a model a 3+ armour save.

Signallights: A Signallight device is an IR designator commonly used by Federation forces to mark targets for other friednly units to engage, and may be used in place of a weapon during an attack action. When an enemy unit is hit by a model that has and is using it's Signallight, it takes no damage from that attack. It instead gains a Signallight token, which any of your units may later remove from the target unit to gain a +1 bonus on it's to hit rolls against the target for a single attack action.
