Chapter Solo Mode Ability
Required Rank: 1
Effects: The Ultramarines consider themselves a pure expression of the Codex Astartes and among the truest of the Emperors sons. This pride and unshakable personal belief often manifests itself in their leadership abilities and the example they set to other members of the Adeptus Astartes. While in Solo Mode, a Battle-Brother of the Ultramarines Chapter may re-roll any Fellowship Tests when dealing with either Space Marines or members of the Imperial armed forces (i.e. Imperial Guard, Imperial Navy, etc.). In addition, their strength of leadership means that the Battle-Brother adds +1 to the Kill-team’s Cohesion if he is the squad leader. This bonus to Cohesion remains active even when the Battle-Brother is not in Solo Mode.
Improvement: At Rank 3 and above once per combat the Battle-Brother may automatically pass one Command Skill Test. At Rank 5 and above the Dispositions (see page 276) of all Imperial forces and agents are improved favourably by one step when dealing with the Battle-Brother. At Rank 7 and above the Battle-Brother adds +2 to his Kill-team’s Cohesion rather than +1.
