The Martial Ka’tah rule says that if every unit from your army has the Adeptus Custodes keyword (excluding Anthema Psykana, agents of the imperium and unaligned units), and every unit that is assigned to the same shield host, this unit can use this ability. My Forgeworld book shows both Adeptus Cudstodes and Shield Host listed as keywords on all the units so I am very confused as to why they don’t get this Rule. Can someone point out to me what I am missing here?

Thanks guys ! I’ll admit this is not my favorite army, but new rules are always fun.

I don’t know if you can say it, have you playtested all these codexes ?

Technically Chef all language is made up. So it doesn’t matter how you pronounce anything!

Would be cool to see Sanga, make up a blade champion to look like “Roronoa Zoro” from the anime one piece. Because he uses three swords one in each hand and one in his teeth.

All words are made up, Chef! Nice highlight video.

Kata is a, presumably japanese, word that means a series of moves/blows/kicks in karate for example.

You’re a slippery fish, Chef! But a superb dude all round!

Dudes, what is this about a change to a lot of the point values in the Munitorum Field Manual… expected soon? Seems weird to change so many point values already!?
