Imperial Fists Space Marine Army List

Primarch-Progenitor, to your glory and the glory of him on earth!

Forces

The Imperial Fists Space Marine Army List uses the datasheets from the Imperial Fist Forces section.

Using The Army List

The following army list allows you to field an army based on a Imperial Fists Space Marine army. It can also be used as a stand in army list for any of the Imperial Fists’ successor chapters.

Space Marines are organised into small formations called detachments. Each detachment is made up of one or more units, and may also include a number of extra units called upgrades.

The detachments that may be taken in a Imperial Fists army are shown on the chart that follows. The chart also shows what units comprise the detachment, what upgrades are allowed, and its points cost.

Each upgrade that is taken adds to the cost of the detachment, as shown on the upgrade chart. The upgrade chart also lists the units that make up the upgrade. Note that these will sometimes replace units in the detachment they are taken for, and sometimes takes the form of additional units for the detachment. Each upgrade may be taken once per formation.

Imperial Fist armies may be supported by Titan Legion battlegroups, and Imperial Fist aircraft and static defence formations. A maximum of up to a third of the points available to the army may be spent on these formations.

Special Rules

The They Shall Know No Fear rule applies to all Imperial Fist detachment, aircraft and static defence formations (see They Shall Know No Fear). The Fortifications rule applies to Imperial Fist Space Marine armies (see Fortifications).

Imperial Fists Transport

The Space Marines are a highly mobile army. Because of this, the points cost of a detachment usually includes enough Rhino transport vehicles to transport it and any upgrades that have been taken. Determine the number of Rhinos needed after all upgrades have been purchased. The number of Rhinos will always be the minimum needed to carry the formation, you can’t take extras along to cover any losses!

Note that many formations don’t receive Rhinos, usually because they can’t fit into them. Detachments that come with Rhinos will be noted as having plus transport in the units section of the detachment list below.

In addition you may choose to replace a detachment’s Rhinos with two Bunkers and 50cm of Trenches or Minefields before each game, after the opposing army is known but before objectives are placed.

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).

They Shall Know No Fear

Space Marines are renowned for their tenacity and bravery. This is represented by the following rules:

  • It takes 2 Blast markers to suppress a Space Marine unit or kill a unit in a broken formation (ignore any leftover Blast markers).
  • Space Marine formations are only broken if they have 2 Blast markers per unit in the formation.
  • Space Marines formations only count half their number of Blaster markers in assault resolution (rounding down—note that assault resolution will not receive +1 for having no Blast markers if the formation has 1 Blast marker before rounding down). Halve the number of extra hits suffered by a Space Marine formation that loses an assault, rounding down in favour of the Space Marines.
  • When a broken Space Marine formation rallies, it receives a number of Blast markers equal to the number of units, rather than half this number. Space Marines with the Leader special ability remove 2 Blast markers instead of 1.

Masters of Siege

The Imperial Fists have a special expertise in siege warfare and mass shock assaults. This is represented by the following rules:

  • An Imperial Fists army may start one additional garrison formation on overwatch for every full 1,000 points its point total is greater than 2,000.
  • All units count as having walker when making a dangerous terrain test for entering or starting to move on minefields that have been purchased as part of the army.
  • All infantry units gain first strike when within trenches purchased as part of the army.
  • All infantry units gain a 4+ cover save when within bunkers purchased as part of the army. They may take this cover save against a macro-weapon hit. In addition, they may re-roll a failed cover save against any non-macro-weapon hit. Weapons with ignore cover negate this cover save as normal.

Imperial Fist Fortifications

Bunker
Counts as Fortifications (see Terrain Effects). Can hold three units.
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.
Trench
Can hold one infantry unit per 4cm of length.
Fortified Position Effects Table
Terrain Infantry Vehicle War Engine
Bunker 3+ Cover Save Dangerous Impassable
Gun Emplacement 4+ Cover Save 5+ Cover Save No Effect
Minefield Dangerous Dangerous Dangerous
Trench 4+ Cover Save Dangerous No Effect

Automata

Formations that are comprised completely of units with automata may only carry out marshal, overwatch and sustained fire actions. They also cannot capture objectives in the Epic tournament game rules.

Formations that include at least one unit without automata do not receive a Blast marker when a unit with automata is destroyed, this includes the extra Blast marker from the first casualty of a crossfire and for units destroyed for being out of formation after a move. Also, if an automata unit is hit by a weapon with disrupt it does not inflict a Blast marker. Finally, don’t count units with automata that are lost in an assault when working out who has won the combat.

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).
