Infernals Errata

Infernals are coming! And with them, a couple new model types: Infernal masters and horrors. Masters are effectively warcasters/warlocks, and horrors are basically warjacks/warbeasts, but they do have some unique rules.

We combed the model rules and have identified a variety of special rules we wanted to affect infernal masters and/or horrors and have called them out here. Many of these are evergreen rules and effects that are present across a wide selection of models, as well as a few specific feats and abilities we specifically determined should affect infernal masters and/or horrors.

Cygnar

Commander Adept Nemo

Change the text of Electrical Storm to the following:

Enemy warjacks, warbeasts, and horrors currently in Nemo’s control range suffer a POW 14 electrical damage roll XICONX. Electrical Storm damage rolls are simultaneous. Warjacks damaged by Electrical Storm suffer Disruption XICONX.

Added horrors. See explanation at top of page.

Sword Knights

Change the text of Penetrating Strike to:

Penetrating Strike - When this model hits a warjack, warbeast, or horror with a melee attack, you can choose to have the model hit suffer 1 damage point instead of a normal damage roll.

Added horrors. See explanation at top of page.

Sword Knight Officer & Standard

Change the text of Penetrating Strike to:

Penetrating Strike - When this model hits a warjack, warbeast, or horror with a melee attack, you can choose to have the model hit suffer 1 damage point instead of a normal damage roll.

Added horrors. See explanation at top of page.

Protectorate

Testament of Menoth

Change Soul Ward to:

 Soul Ward - Enemy models cannot gain soul tokens from friendly models destroyed in this model’s command range.

 We made a change to Soul Ward that prevents enemy models from collecting souls from friendly models, as opposed to every model. Soul Ward was too much of a blanket ability that passively interacted with too many models with very little effort. Now the ability should feel a lot less oppressive on the table and should not casually shut down entire game mechanics.

 Hand of Silence

Change the text of Direct Spirits to:

Direct Spirits - When a friendly living Faction warrior model is destroyed in this model’s command range and generates a soul token, you choose which model with the Soul Taker ability gains the destroyed model’s soul, regardless of the proximity of other models. Enemy models are not eligible to gain soul tokens from friendly models destroyed in this model’s command range.

This change to Direct Spirits now adds a friendly clause in the final sentence, limiting the scope of the ability. Direct Spirits, like Soul Ward, was too efficient at shutting down soul collection. This change makes the ability a lot less universal in its coverage and should give a little breathing room to soul-collecting armies.

Cryx

Goreshade the Cursed

Change the text of Abyssal Gate to the following:

When Abyssal Gate damages an enemy non-warcaster, non-warlock, non-infernal master model, after the attack is resolved you can place the enemy model anywhere completely within 3˝ of its current location. A model can be placed by Abyssal Gate only once per turn.

Added infernal masters. See explanation at top of page.

Retribution

Lys Healer

Change Soul Ward to:

 Soul Ward - Enemy models cannot gain soul tokens from friendly models destroyed in this model’s command range.

 We made a change to Soul Ward that prevents enemy models from collecting souls from friendly models, as opposed to every model. Soul Ward was too much of a blanket ability that passively interacted with too many models with very little effort. Now the ability should feel a lot less oppressive on the table and should not casually shut down entire game mechanics.

Crucible Guard

Aurum Legate Lukas di Morray

Add Irregulars [Alyce Marc]:

Irregulars [Alyce Marc] - Alyce Marc solos can be included in any army that also includes Aurum Legate Lukas di Morray.

This is essentially a freebie for Lukas so he can always opt to take Alyce in a Hearts of Darkness list without taking up one of his limited solo slots.

Mercenary

Fiona the Black

Change the text of Befuddle to the following:

On a hit, you can immediately advance target enemy non-warcaster, non-warlock, non-infernal master model up to 3˝. Affected models cannot be targeted by free strikes during this movement. A model can move only once per turn as a result of Befuddle.

Added infernal masters. See explanation at top of page.

Croe’s Cutthroats

Change Mercenaries to:

Mercenaries - This unit will work for Cryx, Infernals, Khador, and the Protectorate.

Add Partisan [Infernals]:

Partisan [Infernal] - When included in an Infernal army, this unit is an Infernal unit instead of a Mercenary unit.

Surprise! Jarok Croe and his Cutthroats are infernalists. There may be more in store for Croe and his mercenary band, so keep an eye out because you never know when you may become their prey…

Eilish Garrity, The Occultist

Change Mercenary to:

Mercenary - This model will work for the Convergence, the Crucible Guard, Cryx, Cygnar, Infernals, Khador, the Protectorate, and the Retribution.

Add Partisan [Infernals]:

Partisan [Infernal] - When included in an Infernal army, this model is an Infernal model instead of a Mercenary model.

Gain Marked Soul:

Marked Soul - This model is a Marked Soul.

Gideon Asher was Eilish all along! We apologize for the smoke and mirrors, but we wanted to surprise everyone with some hidden infernalists in your midst. Now that the secret is out, and their identities have been revealed, we have some classic solos to add to your army, i.e., their original versions.

Orin Midwinter, Rogue Inquisitor

Change Mercenary to:

Mercenary - This model will work for Cryx, Infernals, Khador, and the Protectorate.

Add Partisan [Infernals]:

Partisan [Infernal] - When included in an Infernal army, this model is an Infernal model instead of a Mercenary model.

Gain Marked Soul:

Marked Soul - This model is a Marked Soul.

Just like Eilish, Orin was secretly an infernalist all along under the CID guise of Faustus. Now that he has been outed, we can let you know his original version is also available for Infernal armies. Enjoy!

Saxon Orrik

Change Mercenary to:

Mercenary - This model will work for Cryx, Infernals, Khador, and the Protectorate.

Add Partisan [Infernals]:

Partisan [Infernal] - When included in an Infernal army, this model is an Infernal model instead of a Mercenary model.

Change the text of Blind Spot to the following:

Blind Spot - When an enemy warbeast or horror misses this model with a melee attack, immediately after the attack is resolved this model can make one basic melee attack against the attacking model.

Gain Marked Soul:

Marked Soul - This model is a Marked Soul.

More secret Infernalists! Although this guy didn’t get a new, more infernally version, we still didn’t want everyone to know who the secret traitors were until the Faction was releasing. Also, Blind Spot got a change to include horrors. See the explanation at the top of the page.

Trollbloods

Calandra Truthsayer, Oracle of the Glimmerwood

Change the text of Befuddle to the following:

On a hit, you can immediately advance target enemy non-warcaster, non-warlock, non-infernal master model up to 3˝. Affected models cannot be targeted by free strikes during this movement. A model can move only once per turn as a result of Befuddle.

Added infernal masters. See explanation at top of page.

Skorne

Supreme Aptimus Zaal

Change the text of Direct Spirits to:

Direct Spirits - When a friendly living Faction warrior model is destroyed in this model’s control range and generates a soul token, you choose which model with the Soul Taker ability gains the destroyed model’s soul, regardless of the proximity of other models. Enemy models are not eligible to gain soul tokens from friendly models destroyed in this model’s control range.

This change to Direct Spirits now adds a friendly clause in the final sentence, limiting the scope of the ability. Direct Spirits, like Soul Ward, was too efficient at shutting down soul collection. This change makes the ability a lot less universal in its coverage and should give a little breathing room to soul-collecting armies.

Zaal, the Ancestral Advocate

Change the text of Direct Spirits to:
