Army Special Rules

This section of the book describes all the different units used in a Halfling army, along with any rules necessary to use them in your games of Warhammer. Where a model has a special rule that is explained in the Warhammer rulebook, only the name of that rule is given. If a model has a special rule that is unique to it, that rule is detailed alongside its description. However, there are a number of commonly recurring 'army special rules' that apply to several Halfling units, and these are detailed here.

Enemies attacking Infantry models with this special rule suffer -1 To Hit in close combat.

Units with this special rule are Stubborn so long as they are at least partially within their Deployment Zone.

When this army attempts to dispel, they have a +2 bonus to all dispel attempts. Note that, if this army is fighting alongside a Wizard for whatever reason, this bonus is lost.

Models with this upgrade gains the Fight in Extra Ranks (1) special rule.

Models with this special rule may take up two Talismans and/or Enchanted Items rather than just one of each.
