Oath of Loyalty
As important as loyalty to the Chapter is loyalty to one’s comrades. Knowing they can be relied upon in combat to watch a Battle-Brother’s back and support his attacks is key to the squad’s strength and effectiveness. An Oath of Loyalty is a way of strengthening that faith within the squad and boosting a Battle-Brother’s own connection with his Kill-team.
Prerequisite: Tactical Marine or Apothecary
Effect: Those who take the Oath of Loyalty spend time with their Battle-Brothers to strengthen their camaraderie. A Kill-team which takes this oath gains a +1 bonus on Cohesion Challenge rolls and their leader may add +10 to all tests to resist Cohesion damage.
Squad Mode Abilities: Tactical Spacing, Regroup and Soak Fire.
