Reeling, the wild-man tried to escape, but was surrounded, for many of the hunting party were mounted upon great black steeds. His bach pressed against a tree, Jonson growled at the knights, preparing to sell his life dearly. Their journey was delayed by Warp storms, Daemon attacks and traps set by tl1e traitorous Legions, for half of the Space Marine Legions had been persuaded by Horus to rebel. When, at last, they reached Terra's orbit, Jonson saw tl1ey were too late. Events had taken their terrible course.
The forces of Chaos were defeated, but the Imperium was in ruins and the Emperor was mortally wounded. They howled in t-allied the reeling Imperium. The Dark Angels took a frustration, and across the galaxy psykers fell to their knees. As they pursued the rebels, the Legion space and a Warp storm emerged to engulf what remained diverted to nearby Caliban, which had been enshrouded by of Cali ban.
For Lion El'Jonson, one under Luther were sucked from the broken surface into final act of treachery remained to be discovet-ed. The remains of Cali ban, weakened by the bombardment, were ripped As the Dark Angels fleet moved into orbit, they were met by asunder, destroyed in a last apocalyptic explosion. Ships exploded, plummeting into the planet like monstrous comets. Although stunned by Only a single part of the planet survived tl1e vortex that the sudden attack, Jonson's supet-human reactions allowed pulled the rest of the crumbling debris into the Warp.
The betrayal Jonson unravelled shook him to his very monastery and a massive hunk of the planet's bedrock core. Over the decades Luther had brooded, nurturing a still remained, held together and floating alone in the seed of jealousy. His hatred had spread, poisoning those empty vacuum of space. The Dark Angels flew down to the under his command and several generations of new recruits.
At the heart of all-consuming hatred of the new Imperium. Like Horus, the empty wasteland they found Luther, bloody, cringing Luthet- had been corrupted; his pride had been all the and gibbering, but they wet-e unable to extract anything opening the Dark Gods needed to make him their own.
They had fought across the galaxy, Luthet- repeated the same words over and over again: the but had arrived too late to aid their Emperor. Still, they Primat-ch had been carried away by the Watchers in the had tlwught the Dark Powers on the run, only to find their Dark and one day he would return to forgive Luther own homeworld, their own brethren, corrupted and turned for the terrible sins he had committed.
Of the mighty against them. Even as the horrors of the situation sunk in, Primarch, Lion El'Jonson, there was no sign. Jonson formulated a battle plan.
It began with the massed guns of the fleet disabling Caliban's defence laser batteries and driving the rebel Dark Angels into the shelter of their force field-protected foru-ess monasteries. Although the Primarch possessed immense Dumth. After a jJersonal insult, Russ swore he would cut power, the two opponents were equally matched, for Luther's Durath 's head off and demanded that the Dark Angels stand abilities were enhanced by vast forces gifted to him by the down.
Jonson, who had sjJent days laying meticulous plans, Dark Gods. What followed was a fight of titanic proportions. The Dark Angels swept As tl1e two adversaries traded blows, shock waves shook tl1e into the citadel, andJonson killed Durath. Caught flatfooted, monastery, causing chunks of masonry to crash dOWll around Russ' sole contribution to the fight was to howl in jntstmtion. Jonson rose to his the planet, reducing the otl1er monasteries to miles-wide feet and struck back. Each Primarch the planet's crust.
Caliban's surface began to crack under was matched in sujJerhuman stnmgth and sjJeed - if Russ was the bombardment, and the fury of the Dat-k Angels blinded slightly stronge1; thenJonson was mmginally quiclm: Each knew them to the devastation the were wreaking. Alread weakened by the long both men had taken each other's measwre.
Jonson, howeve1; was fight, Luther staggered, leaving silent; he was slow to anger and slow to forgive, and he saw an his rage, Lion El'Jonson could not bring himself to slay his Ru.
As Rttss laughed,Jonsonstruck fOJ-met- friend. As he hesitated, Luther unleashed a furious him unconsciow. The prone fonn of Rttss was canied from the psychic attack that knocked Jonson to hi knees and left him fortress by his men, and nowJonson, in tum, amsidered honouT mortally wounded. As the dying Ptimarch su-uggled to stand, satisfied. When Russ awoke, the Dark Angels were gone, leaving a veil was lifted from Luther's eyes and he realised the full him to swear that he would have vengeance forJonson s low extent of his deeds.
His was a u-iple betrayal: of his friend, of blow. Thus began a feud that still endures, for to this day, when the Dark Angels, and of the Emperor. The truth shattered his SjJace Wolves and Dark Angels meet, a champion from each sanity and he slumped down beside the ailing Jonson, issuing Chapter is called upon to refight that ancient duel. On Terra, the Emperor's silenced body was sustained only by the life-giving machineries of the Golden Throne.
The newly envisioned realm of Mankind was now govemed in the Emperor's name by the High Lords of Terra. Their f'rrst orders were to seek out the hidden roots of the rebellion, to search for collaborators, and to follow up on the retreat of the Traitor Legions that had joined the treacherous Warmaster. All record and memory of the Traitor Legions was expunged Inquiries found the Dark Angels battered, grief-stricken and from the Imperial archives and their homeworlds and bases bereft of reinforcements, but there was little time for any of operations were attacked.
All across the Imperium, a succour, for war called. Across the galaxy, traitor strongholds tangled web of suspicion hung over everything, misdoubts remained and many rebellious planets had yet to be shown that were only made worse as further investigations the error of their judgement, but most ominous of all was revealed yet deeper corruption.
Thus began the Age of the rise of the xenos threat. So much of the Imperium's the Imperium, an era steeped in paranoia, recriminations strength was siphoned off in the civil war, and countless and vengeance. Mter all, if Horus- the right hand of the planets found themselves at the mercy of a new wave of Emperor- could turn traitor, who might be next? Leaving only those necessary to oversee the work being done on the Rock, the Dark Angels split their It was in this new age of fear and doubt that the remaining remaining fleet in an attempt to answer the many distress Dark Angels assembled to pay tribute to their lost Primarch.
Internalising their grief, the Dark Angels pulled together, their Masters forming a plan of action. On Seption Prime, Dark the service of the Imperium. Angels Terminator companies arrived just in time to provide They decided the true story of treachery behind the their forces before the plague planet was destroyed by a rearguard action, allowing the Ultramarines to extract destruction of Caliban must remain secret; no outsider Exterminatus.
All who fought alongside the Dark Angels must learn of the schism that split their Legion, or that lauded them as steadfast warriors, utterly dedicated to the any Dark Angels had ever turned to the Ruinous Powers.
Should the truth be revealed, the Dark Angels would be labelled Excommunicate Traitoris and never given a chance Upon their return to the Rock, the much-depleted Dark to redeem themselves.
The senior members of the Legion Angels found disturbing news.
At the time of the Fall, the formed a secret conclave- an Inner Circle of the Legion's Dark Angels thought their traitorous brethren had all been Masters. They created an overlapping system to watch over destroyed, vanquished in the Warp storm that blossomed their own Brothers, and also themselves.
Everyone must be in the death throes of Caliban. The Fallen Dark Angels scrutinised for signs of corruption. Thus started a spiral of had been swept into the vortex of that horrific rent in the mistrust and secrecy that continues to this day. The scryings of the Legion's Librarians searched long and hard for their missing Primarch and of him they could read no signs. They did, however, pick up traces of the Fallen and determined that the traitors yet lived, although what remained of their psychic signatures were widespread, and the connections were already fading out of mindsight.
Such was the scale of the disaster that there could be no The Masters of the Legion greeted this new shock with hiding it. Psykers across the galaxy had sensed the Warp typical stoicism, despite the inner turmoil it created. Their story might not and forced to repent, then the sins of the Legion might be have held up under an intense inquiry, but it was a time of absolved, washed away in the blood of the Fallen.
That a Warp storm had to atone for all eternity. So began the secret mission that claimed the Dark Angels' homeworld, and so many of their would prove the driving force behind the Dark Angels' brethren, was but another tragedy in a deluge of grim tidings. While the mtisans did ma1'Vellous work, crafting halls their new home.
To this day, there exists a disturbance within thefield :S protective shell, as ifpart of that tempest still rages within. Great chain-lightnings arc across the artificial atmosphere that surrounds the cragg ' Rock, briefly outlining the ruins that crown the asteroid.
The Dark Angels expl! Yred the halls and dungeons they found beneath the fortress monastery. There, they claimed the hoaTd of machinery that Although only a fraction of what was once Caliban, the Rock is larger than even the heaviest class of sta1'Ship, and it bears farmidable firepower. The sheer sides of its mass are studded with gun turrets, lance batteries, tmpedo tubes, observation blisters, and comm-relays.
Its cavernous docking bays can accommodate many hundreds of smaller craft - including Thunderhawk gunships, Nephilim fetfighters and escort frigates.
Many of the devices from that apex of human invention still worked, like the great shield generator itself, although their mechanisms were now unfathomable. Although the existent halls were large, a massive labour carved out deeper and deeper catacombs beneath the asteroid :S bedrock, No effort was made to rebuild the ruined Tower ofAngels atop the Rock, and even now it remains undisturbed and eerily silent, protected fivm the cold depths ofspace by the sameforcefields that shrouded it from the destruction of Caliban.
Although attempts have been made to mask excavating room for an enti1-e Legion. With the aid of the Tech-priests it, an unusual energy signat1tre emanates outwards from the Rock, ofMars, docks were added, allowingfor the entTance of spacecraft. Although it took centuries to complete, the Rock was also outfitted with portending of some great power hidden within. Beneath the shattered Wmp engines, allowing the DaTk Angels' headquaTters to travel across ruins, many dark secrets lay cloistered frorn sight, and the deeper into the Rock s labJiinth of dungeons one goes, the closer one cornes to the truth.
Yet there was one thing moved with speed and convicti on. Lion El'J onson had that had not changed - their campaigns continued to be i n troduced the structure he had learned from the Order well-planned and effective actions. If the Dark Angels were in on Cali ban, and now the remaining Dark Angels took that some strange mourning, it in no way dampened their ability brotherhood a step further, becoming even more monastic to bring battle to -the enemies of the Imperium.
Although Horus had been defeated and Even as the Rock was outfitted to become, in essence, their his t-emaining Traitor Legions driven into the Eye of Terror, new mobile homeworld, the Dark Angels were laying down the High Lords of Terra and the remaining Primarchs still the new rigours that would govern them.
They had all recoiled in horror at the full realisation of how insidious the betrayal had That the Dark Angels were acting suspiciously and growing been, how far across the galaxy the roots of corruption had more insular was noted by many watchful eyes. At this time spread.
The combinations are phenomenal, particularly since there seems to be no limit on who can be your champions. Get an apothecary on the job and restore that wound so it barely even matters. Among the other bonuses turns your librarian into a fearsome character. Target your Interrogator chaplain with this and keep your librarian within 6" to also gain the Ld 10 for Mind Wipe.
Best option is an auxilliary detachment with just one character, but it will cost you an extra CP. Good options are: Lucas the Trickster or Krom Dragongaze for leadership fuckery. Arjac Rockfist is a good character-hunter with deep strike, that benefits from S12 and 6 attacks with re-rolls against characters with this stratagem. A rune priest can manifest Tempest's Wrath, which is basically Aversion with a different name so it stacks. A Supreme Command detachment is the most efficient way to use this stratagem without losing a command point, and would look nicely thematic.
You can also build a Supreme Command detachment of Adeptus Astartes with 1 Space Wolf and 2 Dark Angel characters or any other detachment with Dark Angel units with 1 space wolf character.
You do need another Dark Angel only detachment to get access to this stratagem. If you do want to take a bigger detachment of SW, go for a decent space wolf detachment and look at the SW tactics page for advice on how to build a SW army, you closet wolf. Tactical Objectives[ edit ] 11 - Not One Step Back When generated, decide which turn you want this to trigger: the next turn, the next two turns, or the next three turns.
The objective will be discarded if the battle ends before that time or if you ever Fall Back or fail a Morale test. If they're also within 6" of a friendly Ravenwing unit, this is upped to d3 VP. Applies to terminators give the Deathwing keyword via the Inner Circle stratagem. Try to make it something that the charging unit won't regret being in melee with.
Fury of the Lion: Any time your Warlord charges, was charged, or performed a heroic intervention this turn, friendly Dark Angels within 6" add 1 to their strength for that fight phase. Asmodai has this trait if he's your warlord. He does have a relic slot left over for a Shroud of Heroes for a little more survivability as opposed to the BA. Considering Morale isn't an issue at all for Dark Angels, you may give this one a pass. Ezekiel has this if he's your warlord. Brilliant Strategist: Once per game, you can re-roll a single failed hit, wound, or saving throw roll, if your warlord is alive.
In addition, if your army is battleforged, roll a d6 each time you use a stratagem. You can never go wrong with more CP. Azrael starts with this one, naturally. In addition, when he piles in or performs a Heroic Intervention, he can move towards the closest enemy Character instead of the closest enemy model.
No hiding behind meatshields for your foes' characters now! Belial starts with this one. This is almost useless, as the chances of taking out a character with the guns available is very slim.
With needing to hit, to wound and get past invulnerable saves your chances are very slim of actually killing a character with this. Has some merit against support characters, such as apothecaries or tau ethereals. Techmarines with Servo harness for the plasma cutter and combi-plasma or lion's roar can pump out 3x overcharging plasma shots at 12", and with the Relics of the Dark Age, up to 9 damage. Put him on a bike for 4 more bolter rounds.
As with last edition, Sammael starts with this one. That second bonus is top notch though, as it basically turns your Dangles into Ork Boyz. Give this to a Deathwing Ancient and deepstrike in with your Deathwing Knights. Stubborn Tenacity: Roll a die each time your warlord loses a wound. Add 1 to the result if the Warlord did not move during his last movement phase. On a 6, that wound is ignored. Never take the BBB one, as this does exactly the same with a flat upgrade. Chaplains can suck it because yelling catechisms isn't stealthy.
Shoot and Fade: Immediately after doing a shooting attack except Overwatch , this warlord can move. If he does, he also has to advance.
Imperial stealthy Jump-Shoot-Jump baby! There are better things to do than to play with ONE model's positioning, but this trait does enable your buff characters to be at many places at once, repositioning at max speed: be near one unit, those guys shoot, your captain shoots, then he dashes over to buff another unit's shooting.
By the Spring FAQ you can also use this in conjunction with the Auspex Scan strategem, potentially allowing your warlord to move 3 times during a round, or bait your enemy deep striking his forces near your warlord, and scurry away without fear of getting charged.
Note that this only works for the Librarian or Lieutenant, as the Phobos Master can't use auspex scan due to his omni-scrambler. No need for the redeployed units to be phobos themselves, so you can use it on Hellblasters.
Results depend on the mental games you can play on your enemy - it's not going to be a surprise to your opponent, but being able to make corrections after your enemy's cemented his choice instead of being part of the simultaneous deployment process can be an amazing benefit, and one that Eldar pay 2CP for. It happens after the Seize the initiative rolls, so it is perfect to be prepared to either getting or losing the first turn because of a lucky 6.
Again, this works on non-Phobos units, though Master of Maneuver works better if you just want a better charge success rate. Stealth Adept: -1 from hit rolls that target the warlord. Not just at range so he can prove he's the better sniper around, but it also works in melee; useful since the warlord lacks an invuln save. Of little use since the shadow land speeder gives that same effect but to everyone and without using up a WT.
Combine with Shroud of Heroes for -2 to hit, -3 when in range of the Dark Shroud. Just hope you opponent is not an Ork, rolling a bunch of 6's.
Target Priority: The Warlord can skip shooting in the shooting phase to select a friendly unit within 3" and a visible enemy. Combine it with Weapons of the Dark Age and you got yourself safe 3D plasma. Can also help with those -1 to hit enemies, as well to improve your snipers' chances of eliminating that troublesome enemy character. It's not limited to your infantry either, you can even place it on your Land Raider or Dakkadread if you like.
Of which they can take none, because they wield carbines. Psychic Powers[ edit ] Like all 8E factions, in addition to Smite you have access to a faction-specific table of powers. Interromancy[ edit ] Mind Worm: WC 6. An enemy unit within 12" of the Psyker takes a mortal wound, just like that. In addition, the targeted unit is forced to fight last in the following Fight Phase and must wait until all other units have taken their turn.
Aversion: WC 6. An enemy unit within 24" must subtract 1 from all their To-Hit rolls until the next psychic phase. Engulfing Fear:WC 6. Doesn't do anything overt by itself.
Mind Wipe: WC 7. Choose a visible enemy model within 18" of the psyker; both players roll a d6, adding their leaderships.
If you tie or your opponent beats your roll, nothing happens. If you win, that model must subtract 1 from WS, BS, and Ld for the rest of the game, which stacks with itself. Note that this lets you single models out of units, letting you do things like debuff just the special weapons guy in a target unit. Trephination: WC 7. Roll 2d6, add the result together; if you roll a 10 or higher add another 2 to the roll.
The closest visible enemy unit to the psyker takes mortal wounds from the difference of their leadership and your roll.
Mind Wipe can help you push that difference up higher for more mortal wounds, and remember that Imperial armies of all types have plenty of Ld debuffs to stack up in order to make the final difference ridiculously large, but without said help, this power won't do nearly as well as Smite.
Righteous Repugnance. Deathwing Knights will love you for putting this on them. Anybody carrying simple power swords becomes far more deadly; especially in squads, say like veterans of some sort? Obscuration[ edit ] These powers can only be used by Vanguard Librarians. It can move as if it was the movement phase; it must advance and cannot fall back, but when advancing it rolls 3d6 and picks the highest for the distance it advances.
Cannot be used on a given unit more than once per psychic phase. Slightly more situational than Warptime, but no less amazing for it.
Game designer Rick Priestly created the original rules set based on the contemporary 2nd Edition of Warhammer Fantasy alongside the Warhammer 40, universe. The game play of Rogue Trader was heavily oriented toward role-playing rather than strict tabletop wargaming.
This original version came as a very detailed, though rather jumbled, rulebook, which made it most suitable for fighting small skirmishes. Much of the composition of the units was determined randomly, by rolling dice. A few elements of the setting Bolters , Lasguns , Frag Grenades , Terminator Armour can be seen in a set of earlier wargaming rules called Laserburn produced by the now defunct company Tabletop Games written by Bryan Ansell.
These rules were later expanded by both Ansell and Richard Halliwell both of whom ended up working for Games Workshop , although the rules were not a precursor to Rogue Trader.
