Come take a look at what really makes Battletome Daughters of Khaine tick on the tabletop.

Every army has it’s red hot beating heart rules mechanic. The set of rules that define it and make the army work uniquely.  Let’s take a look at Daughters of Khaine.

Battle Traits

Fanatical Faith and Blood Rites are the ladies’ two hallmark abilities. Fanatical Faith gives an army taking to battlefield in little to no armor some much needed ability to shrug off wounds. But it’s the Blood Rites table that powers up the army from turn to turn as it’s cumulative effects start to stack up.  I’m sure you’ve noticed the close relationship these rules have with the Drukhari’s Power From Pain in Warhammer 40,000.

Blood Rites Table

The Blood Rites Table is pretty spicy. Note the automatic Animation of Avatars of Khaine starting on Turn 3. Next note the army has several artifacts and spells that can add cumulative bonuses to the Blood Rites effect that is currently in use.
