Allowed models Which includes
Last updated 2017.06

Too many to bother listing
Triumph
Ranger models/units
Trencher models/units
Captain Jonas Murdoch leading a non-character Mercenary unit

Theme Force Bonuses[edit]

  • This army can include up to one non-character Mercenary unit with Captain Jonas Murdoch attached to it.
  • For every 20 points of units/structures in this army, you can add one Trencher weapon crew unit, command attachment, or solo to the army free of cost.
    • Free units do not count toward the total point value of units in the army when calculating this bonus.
  • Trencher warrior models in the army gain Rise. (Rise - If this model is knocked down, at the beginning of your next Maintenance Phase it stands up for free.)
  • You gain +1 to your starting roll for the game.

Recent Release
This model/theme has only recently been released, and the content in the "Thoughts On" section is based more on theory-machine than actual gameplay experience.

Feel free to remove this warning if you, personally, have a good level of gameplay experience with the model, have reviewed this article, and either you A) agree with the content 100% or B) for the parts you disagree with, you don't strongly disagree; and it's more a case of differing opinions between you and previous editors rather than incorrect content / bad advice.

Gravediggers in a nutshell[edit]

Trenchers form the highly-trained core of Cygnar's armed might, and this theme allows you to field an entire force of them.

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 : Rise - None yet. (Edit)
