Protectorate Theme Force

The word of the Creator of Man is law, and by the will of the faithful his designs are made material. The clergy of the Protectorate march to war arrayed as an army worthy of Menoth, channelling the power of Menite relics that predate the priest-kings while chanting prayers drawn from holy writ and ancient inscriptions. Their mighty sanctified machines rumble across the battlefield to clash with those who would deny the glory of Menoth. great wheels bearing the weight of consecrated edifices grind ever onward, accompanied by the hymns of warpriests. In righteous splendour menoth's most devout servants go forth to battle blessed by his might.

Thoughts on this Theme Force[edit]

The Creator's Might in a Nutshell[edit]

This is an All Jacks All The Time theme force. If you wanted an almost all jack army (e.g. with High Allegiant Amon Ad-Raza) it's basically free points. If you wanted to screen your jacks with something other than a Choir of Menoth then it might be less useful.

Rules Clarifications[edit]

Rules Clarification : Theme Forces    (Edit)

  • Bonus - One [X] gains [Y]
    • If you need to choose which models get your theme bonus, then you do this choice after deployment. (Infernal Ruling)
    • An example is how Winter Guard Kommand gives Advance Move to one-warjack-of-your-choice-per-WG-unit.
      • In comparison, Destruction Initiative gives all Servitors the Shield Guard ability so you don't need to "make" a choice.
    • You should still write on your army list how many of these bonuses you get to hand out, though, so your opponent can clearly see. (Infernal Ruling)
      • ie at the bottom of your list, you'd write "3 warjacks gain Advance Move" but you don't need to state which three are going to get the bonus.
  • Theme Forces, free models, and Specialists in Steamroller
    • When you make substitutions to your list, you need to double-check that you haven't removed something that allows you to take free models.
    • If you have, then you either need to remove those free models, or pay full points cost for them.
  • Unit Attachments & free points
  • Specific Themes
    • Refer to each theme to see if there is anything totally specific to that theme.

Rules Clarification : Reposition      (Edit)

  • Models out of formation cannot move via Reposition. Refer to the "Out of Formation" rules in the core rulebook.
  • You cannot trigger abilities that occur "at the end of activation" (such as Sprint) after resolving Reposition, because your activation has ended. Click here for a detailed explanation
  • You cannot trigger abilities that occur "at any time" (such as Go To Ground) during a Reposition. Because you can't trigger it while moving, and after moving your activation has ended.
    • This holds true even if it's a unit with multiple Reposition moves. (Infernal Ruling)
