6 July 2023

General Rules: Retinues

Each of the factions in this event work individually and their rules will be explained in their own sections. Some rules for using Retinues will effect all factions and these are listed here.

Some forces have units called Retinue Units.

Retinue units may be Characters or other units but may not be fortifications. A retinue unit may be from any force organisation slot including Lord of War. A retinue unit may not be a Unique unit.

Special Rules

Keyword

All Retinue units gain the Retinue keyword.

Special Rule Keywords

Your Warlord, Inquisitor or Commander, change any Special Rule keywords to their primary keyword. For example: an Inquisitor would change all special rules to Imperium, a Chaos Warlord’s special rules keywords would change to Chaos.

Inspire

Any friendly unit within 6″ of this Retinue unit may choose to use this units LD instead of their own.

Close Protection

You may field a Retinue Infantry unit for free for every Retinue Character Unit fielded. These units may be Retinue Character Units but if they are you may not field an additional Retinue unit.

For example: You field you Warlord (Character) and you may field an additional Infantry Retinue unit for free. If this unit was another Character you would not be able to field another.

Bodyguard

When a friendly Character unit is within 3″ of an Infantry Retinue unit, that Character unit can use the Look Out, Sir! rule even if this unit contains fewer than 3 models.

Deploying a Retinue

You have to include the value of Retinue units when working out Victory Points for your opponent. For example: in a game where you are deploying 2,000pts you may have deployed an extra 400pts of Retinue units this would mean your opponent would count your force as 2,500pts for VP etc.
