Scions of Iron Space Marine Army List

They called us weak, betrayers and traitors. But they were wrong. It was not us that were lost and had left the path, but themselves. For they had forgotten the pride of Marines. We are enhanced already. We are the beacon of mankind and should not be hide away but lead in front. So we turned and walked away from them. Not because we were betraying the chapter, but because by staying we would betray the Emperor.

They call us traitor. but remember that we call them brothers. For us, all the Marines are the Emperor’s chosen. For us, all the Marines are united as Emperor’s divine instruments. For us, all Marines are brothers.

Forces

The Scions of Iron Space Marine Army List uses the datasheets from the Scions of Iron 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 army based on one of the Scions of Iron Space Marine Chapter that fought during the Invasion of Telgar VI.

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 Scions of Iron 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.

Scions of Iron armies may be supported by Imperial Navy aircraft and Titan Legion battlegroups. No more than two of each of these formations may be included in the army. In addition a maximum of up to a third of the points available to the army may be spent on these formations and Scions of Iron aircraft formations.

Special Rules

The They Shall Know No Fear rule applies to all Scions of Iron detachment and aircraft formations (see They Shall Know No Fear).

Scions of Iron Transports

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 army list opposite.

Also note that Terminators must take either Teleport or have Land Raiders. They may not start the game as foot infantry.

Thunderhawk Transporter

The entire Thunderhawk Transporter detachment is counted as a single war engine for the purposes of war engine transport (see Transport War Engines), e.g. a Thunderhawk Transporter detachment can carry units from another formation, as long as the entire formation can fit inside the Thunderhawk Transporters.

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.

May step over units and pieces of terrain that that are lower lower than the unit’s knees and less than 2cm wide. Critical Hit Effect: The unit’s plasma reactor has been breached. 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).
