Abaddon the Despoiler










Dark Destiny

This model has a 4+ invulnerable save. In addition, this model cannot lose more than 3 wounds in the same phase. Any wounds that would be lost after that point are not lost.

Lord of the Traitor Legions

In your Command phase, select one friendly HERETIC ASTARTES CORE or HERETIC ASTARTES CHARACTER unit within 6" of this model. Until the start of your next Command phase, each time a model in that unit makes an attack, you can re-roll the hit roll (if that unit is a BLACK LEGION unit, you can also re-roll the wound roll).

Mark of Chaos Ascendant
  • Each time this model makes a melee attack, if it made a charge move, was charged or performed a Heroic Intervention this turn, add 1 to the Strength characteristic of that attack.
  • Once per turn, the first time a saving throw is failed for this model, the Damage characteristic of that attack is changed to 0.
  • Each time an attack is made against this model, if the Strength characteristic of that attack either equals or is at least double the Toughness characteristic of this model, subtract 1 from that attack's wound roll.
  • If this model starts the Fight phase in Engagement Range of any enemy models, it fights first that phase.
The Despoiler (Aura)

While a friendly CHAOS CORE unit is within 6" of this model:

  • Add 1 to charge rolls made for that unit.
  • Each time a model in that unit makes an attack, re-roll a hit roll of 1.
The Warmaster

If your army is Battle-forged, this model must be your WARLORD.
