"It is on their shoulders the future of the Canis Salient rests. The whole right arm of the Crusade, thrust like a spear into the guts of the alien T'au. The Hunter Cadres of the Tsua'Malor Viorla resist everywhere, almost as maddened as the Lord Commander for death and glory. Yet we seek victory, a crushing blow to the xenos hordes that infest the worlds of the Greyhell Front. With the Emperor's blessing - it shall be delivered."
- Bastion Commander Saran Gholbert, 23rd Hethgard Fusiliers.

All Characters receive the following:
Special Ability: Our Scars Define Us (Free, no xp award)
A Space Marine forges his body as he fights, his deeds a network of mended flesh and knitted bone within his powerful frame.
Effect: At the conclusion of a Campaign, upon Rank Increase, the Character with this ability gains the Sound Constitution x2 Trait.
Example: Brother Julo has fought nobly and suffered for it. As he purchases his advances to reflect his newfound experience and training, his body has also altered, the scars upon his flesh a signature learning curve he does not wish to repeat. As his mind is fortified, so is his physique. He gains +2 permanent wounds at every Rank increase.
Special Ability: Hypnogogic Induction (Free, no xp award)
A Kill Team is defined not by Oaths alone, but by Deeds and the willingness or flexibility that led them to the halls of Erioch. They are greater than the sum of their parts, and conquer together, in the Emperor's name.
Effect: All Battle-Brothers may share and partake in their Chapter Squad Modes freely, in addition to any Squad Modes they normally have access to. Any character with this talent gains the benefits of Forging The Bond.
Example: Brother Angelus is a Blood Angel, next to him is Brother Caprellian of the Black Templars. They are battling a hideous daemon who is determined to send them to hell for it's master. Caprellian activates his Squad mode, which gives benefits when fighting such creatures, but anyone not of his Chapter cannot normally join in with this technique. However, because both Marines have the Hypnogogic Induction, Brother Angelus can now lend his strength to vanquish the daemon for good.
Special Ability: Never Unprepared (Free, no xp award)
A Kill Team never strikes as one blade, he who stands alone, dies alone.
Effect: All Squad Modes are available at all times, following the normal rules for Cohesion and Support Range.
Special Ability: Our Hands Bring Death (Free, no xp award)
A Space Marine has enhanced co-ordination, better than any normal human could ever hope to achieve. He can shoot in one direction and chop with his Combat knife in another, a whirlwind of shooting and stabbing that allows him to overcome.
Effect: All Battle-brothers with this Special Rule count as having the following Talents:
- Twin Weapon Wielder (Ballistic)
- Twin Weapon Wielder (Melee)
This means that any Astartes Character suffers no penalty for using a pistol in one hand and a melee weapon in the other at the same time, as long as they are also Ambidextrous.
Example: Brother Kalus is surrounded by Orks in Melee range. He wishes to attack with both weapons, using the special Multiple Attacks Action. Normally, this would mean he would be at -20 to hit with both knife and gun, but his extensive training allows him to use both at close quarters, increasing his chances of survival, and therefore mission success.
Example 2: Brother Incaladiel is also in close combat. Yet he has armed himself with a Chainsword and combat knife to make maximum mayhem. Again, the two weapons would be cumbersome to anyone without this training, but his blows are undimmed and he hacks his way to freedom through the bloody gore.
