Dances: In combat Bladedancers perform


elusive dances to confuse their opponents and
deal out devastating strikes. Bladedancers are
almost permanently in motion and change their
dance style for different effects. Because the
carefully choreographed dances would be
disturbed by anyone not proficient at them, the
unit may not be joined by independent
characters. Bladedancers receive a 4+

combat. At the beginning of each assault phase
you may pick one of the following dances for the
Bladedancer unit. The dance stays in effect until
the next assault phase starts. You may not pick
the same dance on two consecutive turns:
Hawk’s Talons: The Bladedancers use wide
swings to deliver precise and powerful strikes
against their opponents’ weak spots. The
Bladedancers’ attacks count as rending attacks.
Hail of Blades: Extremely fast movements and
complicated manoeuvres grant the Bladedancers
+1 attack each.
Whirling Tempest: The Bladedancers move in
unpredictable patterns making them hard to hit.
Models directing attacks toward the Bladedancer
unit lose one attack in each assault phase.
Dragon Claws: The Bladedancers sink their
blades deep into their opponents’ flesh. The
Bladedancers add +2 to the result of their rolls to

Whistling Storm: The blade dance teaches the


dancers to move with unnatural swiftness.
Bladedancers can run relentlessly without being
stopped or hindered in any way. Bladedancers
ignore difficult terrain when moving. Further,
when a Bladedancer unit is running it is always
treated as having rolled the highest possible
distance. This means they always run up to 6

EXODITEMOUNTS
Exodites employ various animals as cavalry mounts to charge to battle on. Traditionally the animals
used are some form of large reptiles or dinosaurs, but not every maiden world is ihabited by these
creatures. An Exodite army may as well use animals of different kinds. Instead of Pterosaurs they
might use large birds, or sabertooth cats instead of Dragons and a more slender kind of cat for
Raptors. Instead of a Megadon a kind of Mammoth might be employed. In this codex the animals used
as mounts or warbeasts are each given a specific name according to the traditional image of Exodites,
but this should not stop you from using anything else suitable.

Dragon Pterosaur
