Dark Age Displacer Belt
INFANTRY only. Instead of making a Normal Move or Falling Back in your Movement phase, this model’s unit can be removed from the battlefield and then set back up on the battlefield, anywhere that is more than 9″ from any enemy models. This ability can only be used once use per battle.
Experimental Combat Drugs
INFANTRY CHARACTER model only. At any point in the battle the character can choose to administer these drugs. When it does so it gains +1 Strength, +1 Toughness, +1 Attack and +1 Damage to its melee weapons for the rest of the battle. However in EVERY future Command Phase (for both players) the model must make a Leadership check and if it fails suffers D3 Mortal Wounds.

Single ranged weapon only. That weapon gains the PRECISION key word. This is now a Relic Weapon and cannot be further modified.

Deja Vu Device
INFANTRY CHARACTER only. After deployment ends but before the game begins mark the location of this character on the board. At any point in the mission or if the character is reduced to 0 wounds then this relic may be activated. On a 2+ the device is successful, the character is reset to his starting position with the number of wounds they started the battle with. Any progress made towards Agendas by this character is lost and the character is considered slain for all rules purposes. If the dice roll fails the character is slain immediately. Only one use per battle.
