Tenth Edition Astra Militarum

Today’s Warhammer 40,000 tenth edition faction reveal was for the Astra Militarum. The new edition of the game brings new rules for the teeming soldiers on the front lines of the Grimdark, from its battle tanks and infantry to its accomplished officers.

Army Rule: Voice Of Command

Voice Of Command brings your troops in line with Orders. Each Command Phase an Officer model can give one or more orders to units. Each unit can have only one order at a time. These Orders allow troops to be flexible in facing different kinds of challenges with temporary specialties.

Cadian Shock Troops

Cadian Shock Troops are great at holding objectives, with an OC of 2, plus the Shock Troops ability, which allows them to hold an objective even after your unit leaves its control range (until another unit takes control).


With the Rolling Fortress ability, the mighty Baneblade tank can provide cover to units of the Astra Militarum faction.

Leman Russ Battle Cannon

The Leman Russ Battle Cannon’s strength is higher now, and it has the Blast keyword, which means you add an Attack for every five models in the target unit.

Shadowsword: Volcano Cannon

The Volcano Cannon has some serious firepower, enough to take on a Titan.

Stratagem: Reinforcements!

Although Astra Militarum armies reward a bit of hoardy cannon-fodder play, the Reinforcements! Stratagem allows you to replace a destroyed unit with a new, identical one placed into Strategic Reserves.
