Relentless Discipline Points (RDP) are the fuel that give this list any hit and all it’s survivability.
With 9 units you get to roll 9 dice start of each battle round and every 6 is another RDP. Usually you get 1.
The unreliability of this is another reason I dropped Arkhan from my initial list and went double battalion + liege.
Even if you roll no 6s for RDP you still get 6 each battle round and with Shield battalion giving 2 for free you’re working with 8 minimum before you lose any heroes.
- Battalions = 2
- Liege = 2
- Boneshaper = 1
- Soulmason = 1
- Roll for 9 units

Mortek Shield-corps – Free reroll saves on 1 of the 20 model blocks of Mortek Guard in the battalion each turn is huge. Practically 2 extra RDP a turn with the battalion means you’re getting 3RDP worth of value from it.
Mortek Ballistari – Just brought to lower the drops and against give extra guaranteed RDP each turn. With it being a team event having a low drop hero sniping list was the whole idea behind the list when building it.
Magic, Endless & Realm Spells
Empower Nadirite Weapons
This spell is actually very important in the army, most people when trying to counter Mortek Guard spam they bring something that can fight start of combat, in the hero phase or shooting. This is to get around the rerollable saves.
With Mystic Shield you are still making them take shots at a 3+ save unit rerolling 1s.
Also on the heroes especially when stacked with cover mystic shield makes your Liege a 2+ save rerolling 1s ignoring rend 1 since technically he’s on a 1+ if in cover.
