The Legion of the Damned are not deployed as a unit. Instead, all models in your army with the Psyker rule gain the Legion of the Damned psychic power. This is a Conjuration power costing 1 Warp Charge that summons the Legion of the Damned. Once the Legion have been summoned successfully, the power may not be used again for the length of the game. All weapons used by the Legion of the Damned have the Ignores Cover and Soul Blaze special rules.
Aid Unlooked For:
If you have no Psykers in your army or they are removed as a casualty, you may instead deploy the Legion via the Aid Unlooked For special rule. If any squad except Servitors in your army falls under 25% of their original size, you may immediately place the Legion of the Damned in a valid Deep Strike formation anywhere within 6" of the squad. They will not scatter.
The Legion of the Damned may not claim the Victory Points from the First Blood, Slay the Warlord or Linebreaker secondary objectives, nor may they be joined by any character. The Legion of the Damned are neither a Scoring or Denial unit.
Up to two Legionaries may replace their Boltguns with Flamers for 5pts each or Meltaguns for 10pts each. The Damned Centurion may replace his Bolt Pistol with a Plasma Pistol for 10pts, and his Close Combat Weapon for a Power Weapon for 10pts or a Power Fist for 20pts.
Comments? I think they're pretty good, but perhaps need the Damned Souls rule toning down a little. Perhaps either not counting as a denial unit or -1 victory points, not both.
