A Clarification on Objective Secured

***Update:   The full Ob Sec faction list can be found here:  https://www.frontlinegaming.org/2017/08/15/itc-obsec-factoin-keyword-list/

At 1st read it is easy to overlook the 1st sentence.   If your army is Battle-forged, all Troops units in <Faction> Detachments gain this ability.

<Faction> Detachment only applies to specific keywords, especially those that replace <chapter> or <legion>.    A list of which faction keywords apply to Ob Sec will be coming from the ITC shortly.

But as a general rule of thumb, you can use this logic:

  • Very broad faction keywords don't get you ob sec.  For instance "Imperium", "Chaos", or "Aeldari"
  • Very specific faction keywords do get you ob sec.  For instance "Ravengaurd", or "Ultramarines"
  • Some medium specificity keywords do get ob sec.  For instance "Ad Mech" or "Astra Militarum"
  • In Order to qualify for Ob sec every model in a detachment must share those faction keywords.  

We will get you the complete list with complete details as soon as we have it ourselves.
