Death Korps of Krieg Imperial Guard Army List

We shall fall upon them as an endless wave; they shall drown beneath our dead.

Major General Jeridan, 5879th Death Korps Regiment

Forces

The Death Korps of Krieg Imperial Guard Army List uses the datasheets from the Death Korps of Krieg Forces section, the Imperial Navy Forces section, the Titan Legion Forces section.

Using The Army List

The following army list allows you to field an Imperial Guard army that is based on a Death Korps of Krieg siege regiment.

Death Korps of Krieg formations come in two types: companies and support formations. Each company you include in the army allows you to field any two support formations, plus one set of Trenchworks. Although you can only take a support formation if you first take a company, they are treated as separate independent formations during a battle and do not have to move around together. A maximum of one Death Rider Company may be fielded for every full 1,500 points of the army.

In addition, companies may be given up to three company upgrades. Each type of upgrade can only be taken once by a company. Upgrades are added to the company and are not a separate formation. Support formations may not be given company upgrades. Each upgrade that is taken adds to the cost of the company, as shown on the upgrade chart. Note that you may take any type of upgrade for any type of company.

Tank platoons and squadrons may be comprised of different Leman Russ variants. The number of variants, along with the maximum number of rare variants, is listed in the units column. The variants themselves are listed in the Leman Russ variant and Leman Russ rare variant charts. Each variant taken adds to the cost of the formation or upgrade.

Death Korps of Krieg Imperial Guard armies may be supported by Imperial Navy aircraft and Titan Legion battlegroups. A maximum of up to a third of the points available to the army may be spent on these formations.

Special Rules

The Commissars and Fortifications rules apply to Death Korps of Krieg Imperial Guard armies (see Commissars and Fortifications).

Commissars

An Imperial Guard army may include one Commissar character per 500 points, or part thereof, in the army. The Commissars do not cost any points.

Commissar units may be added to the army at the start of the battle before either side sets up. If the army includes a Supreme Commander than the first Commissar must be attached to the Supreme Commander’s formation. Any further Commissars may be attached to any other formations.

You may not include more than one Commissar per formation. You may not add a Commissar to an Imperial Ally formation. If you have more Commissars than formations any excess is lost.

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).

Roll a D6 for each breach on the unit in the end phase of each turn. On a roll of 1 the unit is destroyed and all units within 5cm suffer a hit on a roll of 5+, and on a roll of 4–6 the breach has been repaired. Any breach not repaired causes one point of damage.

Critical Hit Effect: The unit takes a point of damage and is moved D6cm in a random direction. If this move takes the titan into impassable terrain or another unit it can’t move over then it stops immediately and is destroyed. All units it moves into or over suffer a hit on a roll of 6+.

Roll a D6 for each breach on the unit in the end phase of each turn. On a roll of 1 the unit is destroyed and all units within 5cm suffer a hit on a roll of 4+, and on a roll of 4–6 the breach has been repaired. Any breach not repaired causes one point of damage.

Imperial Void Shields

Imperial Titans are protected by void shield generators. The number of void shields each Titan has is noted on the Titan’s datasheet.

Each void shield will automatically stop one point of damage and then go down. Do not make armour saves for damage stopped by void shields, nor allocate Blast markers. Once all of the shields have been knocked down, the Titan may be damaged normally and you may make saving throws against any hits that are scored. Hits from close combat ignore void shields but units using their firefight values must first knock down any shields before they can damage the Titan.

Void shields that have been knocked down can be repaired. Each Titan can repair one downed void shield in the end phase of each turn. In addition, if a Titan regroups it can use the dice roll to either repair the void shield or remove Blast markers (e.g., if you rolled a 2 you could repair 2 shields, remove 2 Blast markers or repair 1 shield and remove 1 Blast marker).
