If the unit has multiple weapons with this special rule, choose which one to use. This bonus attack is made at the unit's normal Initiative, and is in addition to any other bonus attacks, e.g., the +1 from charging.

Blast, Graviton, and Template weapons are not used for point-blank shots; this can cause self-inflicted injuries.

>> ANGELUS BOLT PISTOL

This bolt pistol incorporates the Angelus boltgun's trigger assembly, increasing its rate-of-fire, recoil, and difficulty of use. For this reason, it is reserved for the highly trained Vanguard Veterans.

The Sons of Medusa helped the Iron-hearted Angels design the weapon.
^
Range 12", S 4, AP 5. Assault Pistol.

^
Range 36", S 4, AP 5. Rapid Fire, Coaxial Weapon.

> COAXIAL WEAPON special rule

The coaxial weapon must be fired at the same target as the main weapon; the player cannot simultaneously fire both weapons.

^
Range 36", S X, AP 4. Heavy 2, Anti-materiel Weapon.

> ANTI-MATERIEL WEAPON special rule

If an Anti-materiel Weapon rolls a 6 To Hit, that shot is a "Precision Shot." Wounds from Precision Shots are allocated against a model(s) of your choice in the target unit, as long as it is in range and the firer's line-of-sight, rather than following normal rules for Wound allocation. A character that has a Precision Shot Wound allocated to it, can still make a Look Out, Sir roll. Note that Snap Shots can never be Precision Shots.

An Anti-materiel Weapon's shooting attacks always wound on a To Wound roll of 4+, regardless of the target's Toughness. Furthermore, any To Wound roll of 6 is resolved at AP 2.

Against vehicles, shooting attacks from Anti-materiel Weapons count as Strength 5.

>> EARTHSHAKER PRIME CANNON

Range 36-240", S 9, AP 3. Primary Weapon 1, Barrage, Large Blast.

It has the following profile as a DIRECT FIRE weapon:
^
Range 72", S 9, AP 3. Primary Weapon 1, Large Blast, Unexploded Ordnance.

> UNEXPLODED ORDNANCE special rule

This barrage weapon's shell or missile has safety systems to prevent it from exploding within 12" of the gun mount, and the weapon from damaging itself. If the weapon hits but fails To Wound or to achieve Armor Penetration a model within 12" of the gun mount, the shell has fallen to the ground. Place a counter where the shell fell; the Unexploded Ordnance special rule immediately takes effect.

All units moving within 6" of the unexploded shell, must take a Dangerous Terrain test; on a 1, the shell immediately explodes. A direct attack may be used to detonate the shell.

A Techmarine or Tech-Priest Enginseer using the Blessing of the Omnissiah, or a Warpsmith using his Master of Mechanisms skill, may disarm the Unexploded Ordnance.

>> EXECUTIONER PLASMA CANNON

Tech-Priest Enginseers, serving within the Cadian 423rd Armored Regiment, modified a Leman Russ Executioner named "Hand of Steel" so its plasma cannon may fire an incandescent plasma blast. The Iron-hearted Angels received records of the modifications made, and applied these modifications to their own weapons.

The Executioner plasma cannon has the following profile in BURST MODE:
^
Range 36", S 7, AP 2. Heavy 3, Blast, Gets Hot.

The Executioner plasma cannon has the following profile in CHARGED MODE:
^

> TARGETING LINK special rule

When a vehicle, mounting a weapon with this special rule, fires at a target within 36", this weapon's targeting system may be used to aim other weapons mounted on the same vehicle, granting the others the special rule listed in parentheses.

>> LASER DESTROYER PRIMARY ARRAY

This multi-barrel weapon fires a burst of laser beams, and is capable of boring through the most resilient armor. The laser destroyer primary array incorporates a power capacitor, which allows a vehicle's engines to power the weapon and increase its rate-of-fire, at the cost of briefly immobilizing the equipped vehicle. Iron-hearted Angels Techmarines modified the targeting systems to allow a moving vehicle to act as if it is super-heavy, and accurately fire this weapon; and disabled the overcharged fire capability to prevent damage to these heirloom weapons.
^
Range 48", S 9, AP 1. Primary Weapon 1, Capacitor Fire, Twin-linked.

> CAPACITOR FIRE special rule

If the equipped vehicle has not moved this turn, the laser destroyer primary array becomes an Primary Weapon 2, Twin-linked weapon.

> ORBITAL special rule

If an arrow is rolled on the scatter dice when firing a weapon with this special rule, the shot always scatters the full 2D6", regardless of the shooter's Ballistic Skill. In addition, firing a weapon with this special rule does not prevent the shooter from declaring a charge against the target in the same turn.

>> QUAD HEAVY BOLTER
^
Range 36", S 5, AP 4. Heavy 6, Twin-linked.

>> RAPID-FIRE BATTLE CANNON
^
Range 72", S 8, AP 3. Ordnance 2, Large Blast.

>> WHIRLWIND ALPHA MISSILE LAUNCHER

During the Second War for Armageddon (941.M41), the Blood Angels modified the Whirlwind multiple missile launcher for increased rate-of-fire, and designed the Dragonfire missile to replace the weapon's Incendiary Castellan and Vengeance missiles. The Adeptus Mechanicus recognized the Whirlwind Alpha pattern after conducting "battlefield tests," allowing its use to spread.

The Whirlwind Alpha missile launcher has the following profile as a BARRAGE weapon:
^
Range 12-48", S 5, AP 4. Ordnance 1, Barrage, Ignores Cover, Large Blast, Twin-linked.

^
Range -, S D, AP 2. Melee, Colossal, Hurl, Point-blank Shot (heavy bolter, lascannon, meltagun).

> COLOSSAL special rule

A model with this weapon will Pile In and fight at Initiative 1.

> HURL special rule

If an Imperial Knight, fighting with an Iron Thunder gauntlet, destroys an enemy Monstrous Creature or vehicle in the Fight sub-phase, he can choose to hurl it (Gargantuan Creatures, Super-heavy vehicles, and buildings cannot be hurled). If a vehicle was destroyed as a result of suffering an "Explodes!" result on the Vehicle Damage table, resolve any damage before hurling it. Any passengers must make an Emergency Disembarkation (see 'Warhammer 40,000: The Rules') before their transport vehicle is hurled.

To hurl an enemy model, immediately resolve a shooting attack against an enemy unit within 12" that is not locked in combat, using the following profile:
^
Range 12", S *, AP -. Heavy 1, Large Blast, The Bigger They Are...

A hurled model is removed from the battlefield after the attack is resolved.

> THE BIGGER THEY ARE... special rule

This attack's Strength is always equal to the hurled Monstrous Creature's Toughness value, or half the hurled vehicle's front Armor Value, after rounding up fractions.

>> REAPER CHAINSWORD
^
Range -, S D, AP 2. Melee.

<> SPECIAL WEAPONS additions

>> COMPENSATED WEAPONS

A flame or melta weapon may have a coaxial bolter to compensate for its short range. The player cannot simultaneously fire both weapons.

Tactical Marines favor a "compensated weapon" over the combi-weapon, whose secondary component is limited to One Use Only. Terminators favor mounting a compensating bolter to their melee weapon, as they cannot handle pistols with an acceptable level of dexterity. Though the resulting weapon is heavier, the weight penalty is inconsequential to an Iron-hearted Angel.

The COMPENSATING BOLTER has the following profile:
^
Range 18", S 4, AP 5. Rapid Fire.

> COMPENSATED FLAMER, 5 points
^
Range Template, S 4, AP 5. Assault 1.

> COMPENSATED FLAMESTORM CANNON

The Argentum Predator and Land Raider Redeemer mount compensating bolters beside their Flamestorm cannons, as the heat from the latter will warp a coaxial boltgun's long barrel.

Each time a Hellfire missile-armed weapon fires, the controlling player can choose whether to fire a Hellfire missile or to use the weapon's ordinary profile.
^
Range 36", S 1, AP -. Heavy 1, Large Blast, Poisoned (2+).

>> INFANTRY TARGET DESIGNATOR (AUSPEX-SIGNUM)

This device combines an auspex and a signum's functions, allowing a squad leader to direct his unit's firepower.

The target designator grants Ballistic Skill 5 to its bearer or "designator," whose profile should be modified to represent this.

Instead of shooting, the designator may grant one other shooter (including vehicles and flyers) Ballistic Skill 5, while the shooter is in the same army. The designator must have line-of-sight to the target, but if the shooter bears a Barrage or Bomb weapon, the shooter will not need line-of-sight to the target; if a target is within 18", the target's cover saves are simultaneously be reduced by 1 until the phase ends.

The player must declare he is using the target designator, and identify the designator, before any rolls To Hit are made.

>> SPECIAL ISSUE AMMUNITION

In addition to the normal profile for their bolt weapon, models with special issue ammunition can choose, in each of their Shooting phases, to instead use one of the profiles below, until the next Shooting phase begins. All models with special issue ammunition in a unit, must use the same profile.

<> BLOOD ANGELS VEHICLE EQUIPMENT additions

>> AUTO-TARGETING SYSTEM

An auto-targeting system-equipped vehicle ignores cover saves or cover save bonuses that moving Flat Out, the Supersonic and Jink special rules provide.

>> CAMO NETTING

Cameleoline sheets may be mounted on a Space Marine vehicle's sides. The light-reactive material imitates the appearance of nearby terrain, concealing the vehicle behind it.

The camo netting-equipped vehicle has a +1 cover save; if it does not already have a cover save, it gains a 6+ cover save.

>> FRAG SHIELD LAUNCHERS (FIRE BARRELS)

These are scaled up frag grenades, fired from a vehicle's smoke launchers. Safer to use than short-fused barrels of Promethean fuel the Astra Militarum tank crews lash onto their vehicles' hulls, they provide close defense against enemy infantry.

The first time an enemy unit attempts to charge a frag shield launchers-armed vehicle, that unit suffers six (6) Strength 4 AP 5 hits. The hits are Randomly Allocated.

>> INFERNUM HALO-LAUNCHER

This device launches spreads of sanctified chaff-flares.

While Jinking, an Infernum halo-launcher-armed vehicle can re-roll failed cover saves.

>> ION SHIELD

Knights carry ion shield generators, which project an energy field accross a narrow arc, intercepting enemy attacks while allowing a Knight's own weapons to return fire. Iron Hands Techmarines performed maintenance and repairs for the ion shields of Freeblade Knights bonded to their Chapter, learning to reverse-engineer and then apply the shield to their vehicles in the process; they passed this knowledge to the Sons of Medusa, who passed it to the Iron-hearted Angels in turn. A Knight's Throne Mechanicum automatically remodulates the shield, ensuring optimum perfomance; on Space Marine vehicles, a Vehicle Commander must constantly remodulate the "ramming shield," which reduces its efficiency.

When a shield-equipped vehicle is deployed, the player must declare which facing its shield is covering, as each Shooting phase begins; the shield may be repositioned in the next Shooting phase, before any attacks are launched. The choices are: front, left side, right side, rear. The vehicle has a 4+ invulnerable save against all hits on that facing, until the next Shooting phase begins. The shield cannot be used to make saving throws against close combat attacks, unless it is front-facing, and the equipped vehicle performs a Tank Shock or a Ramming attack; this effect ends when the vehicle reaches the distance declared, or when it suffers an "Immobilized" result.

The shield may also absorb excess heat from vehicle-mounted weapons. If a shield-equipped vehicle fires a weapon that Gets Hot and receives a roll To Hit of 1, it only suffers a glancing hit on a further roll of 1.

>> IRONCLAD ASSAULT LAUNCHERS

These are loaded with various anti-personnel grenades to disorient enemies and drive them from cover.

A model with Ironclad assault launchers does not suffer the penalty to its Initiative for charging enemies through difficult terrain. Furthermore, enemies who charge a model with Ironclad assault launchers, do not get bonus Attacks from charging, unless the model was already locked in combat from a previous turn.

>> PISTOL PORT

One pistol port can be cut into each of a Land Raider or Rhino's side doors, giving them fire points; two ports can be cut into a Rhino's rear ramp. Passengers may fire pistol weapons from these ports.

The Land Raider and Rhino are designed with electrostatic field emitters at their access points; when the doors open, the field prevents contaminants from entering, and air from escaping, allowing the vehicle to dispense with airlocks. When using a pistol port, a shooter must extend the pistol muzzle beyond the electrostatic field, before firing.

>> REAR GRAPPLES

A Stormraven's rear grapples can transport one Dreadnought or one Thunderfire cannon. The Dreadnought's rear armor or the Thunderfire cannon suffers a Strength 10 if a Zooming Stormraven is wrecked or suffers a "Crash and Burn!" result; the hit is Strength 4 if the Stormraven is Hovering.

>> THUNDERHAWK MASTER MULTIROLE POD

A Thunderhawk Master's multirole pod gives it a Transport Capacity of 26 models. It can transport Jump Infantry and Bikes.

A multirole pod has no Fire Points.

A multirole pod-equipped Thunderhawk Master is treated as Open-topped for embarking and disembarking purposes. The +1 damage modifier for Open-topped vehicles does not apply to the Thunderhawk Master itself.

>> THUNDERHAWK MASTER REAR GRAPPLES

A Thunderhawk Master's rear grapples can transport one Land Raider or smaller vehicle; this vehicle may contain passengers. A transported vehicle's rear armor suffers a Strength 10 hit if a Zooming Thunderhawk Master is wrecked or suffers a "Crash and Burn!" result; the hit is Strength 4 if the Thunderhawk Master is Hovering.

A transported vehicle's sponson-mounted weapons can fire from the Thunderhawk Master.

If the flyer lands, i.e., it does not move in a turn, it may UNLOAD VEHICLES; the transported vehicle moves instead.

If the flyer has moved 6" or more, it may perform a GRAV CHUTE INSERTION. Nominate any point over which the flyer moved this turn, and deploy the transported vehicle as if it were Deep Striking onto that point. If the transported vehicle as scatters, it must immediately take a Dangerous Terrain test; if the vehicle cannot be deployed, it is destroyed.

>> VEHICLE TARGET DESIGNATOR (AUSPEX-SIGNUM)

The target designator grants Ballistic Skill 5 to its mount or "designator," whose profile should be modified to represent this.

Instead of shooting, the designator may grant one other shooter (including infantry and flyers) Ballistic Skill 5, while the shooter is in the same army. The designator must have line-of-sight to the target, but if the shooter bears a Barrage or Bomb weapon, the shooter will not need line-of-sight to the target; if a target is within 36", the target's cover saves are simultaneously be reduced by 1 until the phase ends.

The player must declare he is using the target designator, and identify the designator, before any rolls To Hit are made.

<> RELICS OF BAAL additions

>> BROTHER'S SORROW (CROZIUS ARCANUM), 10 points

The weapon with which Chaplain Mitre executed the Heartless Angels leader and countless Chaos Marines, this crozius arcanum is bathed in holy water after every battle, to cleanse it of tainted blood. When Chaplain Deodoro wielded the weapon in the Badab War, he noticed the crozius' head continuously shed holy water, though he removed the weapon from its bath and began battle 48 days ago; Deodoro exploited this feature by flinging holy water into his enemies' eyes, blinding them.

In surmons, Chaplains claim the weapon expresses Sanguinius' sorrow over his brothers' betrayal. In battle, the weapon expresses Sanguinius' rage, making its wielders rampage though the field.

A Chaplain may replace his crozius arcanum with Brother's Sorrow.
^
Range -, S +2, AP 4. Melee, Blind, Concussive, Rampage.

>> IRON-HEARTED JUDGE (LAND RAIDER REDEEMER), 320 points

The Iron-hearted Judge, Jury, and Executioner are three honored Land Raiders, their ceiling and interior walls studded with "cremation diamonds" made from the ashes of Bleeding-hearted Angels who died in the penitent crusade; they serve as shrines and icons of victory for the Iron-hearted Angels. A Baal Predator turret-- with a pulpit mounted upon it, from which an Iron-hearted Angels warlord's inspirational speeches are voxed across a battlefield-- grants additional firepower.

Within the Chapter, these Land Raiders' machine spirits are renowned for their loyalty to the Imperium. The Iron-hearted Judge and Jury were originally part of Eighth Company's motor pool, the Executioner part of the Ninth Company's; their engines refused to start when Franco Lopez became their Captain. These Land Raiders were left behind when Lopez turned traitor, recovered from the White Sentinel's ruins, and brought as a source of spare parts during the Bleeding-hearted Angels' penitent crusade.

When Chaplain Mitre's Reclusiam field shrine (Baal Predator) was destroyed, he reluctantly mounted its salvaged turret and pulpit on the Iron-hearted Judge, his new personal transport. After the Iron-hearted Angels' "Reforging," the Iron-hearted Judge, Jury, and Executioner are no longer of a specific company, but transferred as necessary to one who needs these vehicles' aid.

A Warlord may take the Iron-hearted Judge, Jury, or Executioner as a Dedicated Transport.

Just a personal opinion but I think a 4+ invuln is a bit much interms of a vehicle shield.  A 5+ would seem sufficient.

It's identical to the invulnerable save a Chaplain's rosaries grants, and to Stormrider's (Logan Grimnar's chariot, from 'Codex: Space Wolves).
