House Lakar Knight World Defense Force Army List

Forces

The House Lakar Knight World Defense Force Army List uses the datasheets from the Knight World Forces section, the Imperial Navy Forces section.

Using The Army List

House Lakar Knight World Defense Force formations come in three types: Knight Households, Support Households and Support Levy. Each Knight Household you include in the army allows you to field one Support Household and one Support Levy.

House Lakar Knight World Defense Force armies may be supported by Imperial Navy aircraft. A maximum of up to a fourth of the points available to the army may be spent on these formations.

The army list includes the following information:

Formation
The name of the formation.
Units
The core units that make up the formation.
Extras
A formation may include any of the extra units listed in the Extras column. You may include any number of extra units in a formation unless it is specifically noted otherwise. All of the core and extra units in a formation count as being part of one formation. The different units may not move off on their own.
Cost
The points value of the formation.

Special Rules

The Fortifications rule applies to House Lakar Knight World Defense Force armies (see Fortifications).

Bravery

Knight Household and Support Household formations receive a +1 modifier to their action test when carrying out an engage action, and a +1 modifier to their rally test.

Fortifications

Fortifications must be set up after objectives but before spacecraft and garrisons. The only exception to this are fortifications that come with a formation (i.e. they are part of that formation’s units). These fortifications are set up with the formation they are part of and once set up cease to be units in that formation.

Fortifications may be set up anywhere a vehicle may normally be placed but may not be transported. They count as having a move of zero and may be set up on the table as garrisons. When setting up fortifications with multiple parts (or fortifications that come with a formation) they must be set up as a legal formation (see Formations).

Once set up, fortifications may be used by any unit (including enemy units).

Knight Technology

Knight Shield
Units with a Knight Shield may make a saving throw on a 4+ when they are hit instead of using their armour value. No modifiers ever apply to this saving throw and it is unaffected by macro-weapon, lance and titan killer hits. However, each point of damage from a titan killer hit must be saved separately. If the unit has reinforced armour as well then it is allowed to re-roll a failed save using its armour value unless the hit was a macro-weapon, lance or titan killer. Finally, none of these benefits apply to units in a crossfire or to hits from supporting fire.
Power Lance and Shock Lance
The Power Lance and Shock Lance may only be used if the unit’s formation carried out an engage action.

Knight World Fortifications

Gun Emplacement
Provides vehicles with a Cover Save that works in the same manner as an infantry cover save (see Infantry Cover Saves). Can hold one unit.
