The enemy unit fired at may move out of the firestorm without taking any more damage. It is assumed they moved out of it on the turn they were hit (Or ran!)
Special Rules and Weapon Stats
Gunkata is a close quarters gun-based martial art. It emphasises kata, or body positioning and movement excercises. This is important because each kata of Gunkata is designed for maximum effeciency in both lethal force and defense. It is of course impossible to see an oncoming bullet and dodge it, but an advanced Gunkata practitioner, known as a Tetragrammaton Cleric or Grammaton Cleric, can put himself in the least statistically possible place to be hit at each moment of a gun fight. Gunkata is based on a scientific analysis of bullet trajectory and range based on the mathematical possible outcomes of a gunfight.
The Grammaton Cleric receives a 3+ invulnrable save against any ranged attack.
Prozium suppresses the emotions of those who take it and is used by the Tetragrammaton Council to control mans inherit destructive behavior.
Because of this peolpe taking the drug may take any Ld test on a 3d6.
Beretta 92 - Strength 3 AP5 Range 18" Assault 2
Grammaton Cleric's train each day in the use of this weapon and a able to pick out weak points on there opponents within only a few seconds. Any roll to hit of 6 counts as AP3.
Katanas - The katana is a very sharp sword ideal for cutting unarmoured opponents.
Always wounds on a 4+ or better. There is also a powered katana for use by very high ranking Cleric's. This also acts as a power weapon.
Combat shotgun - Strength 4 AP- Range 12" Assault 1
Riot shield - Gives the user a 4+ armour save in close combat
120mm antitank gun - Strength 9 AP3 Range 36" Heavy 1
RPG - Strength 5 AP3 Range 24" Heavy 1
Precision rifle - Strength 4 AP- Range 30" Heavy 1 or Assault 1 12"
Lightweight mini-gun - Strength 4 AP5 Range 18" Assault 4 - Is prone to jamming - The first miss you roll for this weapon will jam the weapon for the rest of the turn.

Nice one!! Really good idea. ^_^
WS5, BS5, W3, A3, Ld10 a weapon that always wounds on a 4+ and a 3+ invulnerable save against all ranged attacks for 75pts???
I hope you are kidding... :blink:
Oh right i forgot to make him a independent character as that gives the enemy a chance to pick him out in close combat. With that he could be picked out by powerfists and insta-killed like most other commanders.
Bump - Updated - Added 2 new heavy support choices, 1 new HQ choice, 2 new elite choices and raised the cost of the HQ's weapons. Oh and i messed around with a few of the units.

I don't like how everyone has at least a BS of 4 or higher. That seems wrong to me. We're basically saying that the standard enforcers are as accurate as Space Marines who spend their entire lives fighting wars and training with their bolters...
I can see Clerics having a nice BS, but not the standard 'shoot me!' schlubs.
I do like the Prozium rule. Well done there.
Why do Sweeper Teams have three wounds per model?
Precision Rifles are Assault 12? Hrm, you should change that to either Rapid Fire, or Assault 1 @ 12 inches.
The Cleric's weapons should be Pistols - not 18 inch Assault Weapons. However, you can give them a special rule that allows them to fire two pistols a round, treating them as an Assault Weapon. Basically, what I'm saying is that eighteen inches for a Pistol based weapon is a bit much. This also gives them a +1 attack bonus in CC, which is suiting.
As for Gun-kata, you have the right idea, but I would change it to a 2+ cover save, but to balance it, say that any Template, Blast, or Ordnance weapon ignores this save. This allows them to dodge bullets easily, but even Clerics don't dodge Earthshakers.
Another idea is to give the Clerics all a base Ballistic Skill of 5 or 6, and a Weapon Skill of 3 or 4. Then, you can say that if fighting with their Pistols in Close Combat then they may substitute their BS for their WS. Then, the High Cleric could have a WS of 4 or 5 to represent his enhanced training.
After all, the Clerics were much better with their Pistols at close range than with their swords.
All I got for the moment. Haven't looked much at the Heavy Support or Fast Attack options yet. Just the few ideas that pop into my head as I read your work. Feel free to take any of it or leave it all. Over all, think you've done a good job. But a few balancing 'tweaks' need to be done, as well as giving the army a bit more character.
First off thanks for all the new ideas Caluin. I fixed the Sweeper Team, a typo. The reason i didn't give them a 2+ save of any kind was to stop people putting their Clerics in front of there army and messing up the enemy's shooting with target priority tests. A 2+ cover sounds like a good half and half, maybe a 3+ cover and drop the cost a bit?
As to the range on the pistols maybe a should drop it a bit but the whole idea of the Clerics unit is to stand back and fire small arms at enemy infantry while most return fire is useless. This is balanced out by the fact that any assault squad that can lock them in close combat will ripe them to shreds and a 12" range weapon would put them at a lot of risk.
I just figured that because the soldiers have very little emotional needs that they would spend a lot of there time training. I mean storm troopers have a good BS and im sure they have more R and R then the almost lifeless troopers in Equilibrium.
I wanted a weapon for a elite teams of troops so i made the Precision rifle with a full auto of single shot option idea in mind. The assault 12" was them firing on full auto when the enemy got to close or when they were clearing out buildings as they did in the movie.
EDIT - whoops i see what you mean about a assault 12 weapon! Fixed!
Again thanks for the ideas.
Woo hoo 1000 posts!
