"Terminators ready."

The Assault Terminator Squad is an elite heavy infantry unit for Space Marines in Dawn of War. They can be trained at the Chapel-Barracks once the Orbital Relay Station is built. Each squad costs 340 Requisition, 100 Power and takes up 4 Squad Population slots. In subsequent expansions, only one squad can be deployed at a time. Each squad always start out with 4 members by default but can be increased at a price of 85 Requisition and 25 Power.


  • Heavy infantry.
  • Very tough advanced combat unit. Slow moving. Excels at close combat.
  • Can be teleported to any visible location from the Chapel-Barracks.
  • Foregoes ranged weaponry for additional close combat damage and defense.
  • Effective against most unit types in close combat.


Assault Terminator Squads have:

  • 450 Morale
  • Deals 55-67 melee damage
  • Deals no ranged damage
  • Have a maximum squad size of 8.


These are a close-combat version of regular Terminators, effective against everything. They take 4 Squad Cap as well, but replacing them with 2 Assault Marine Squads isn't the same - these guys have crazy health and beat even vehicles to scrap. Their thunder hammer attacks have a chance to stun enemy units, which stops the enemy from attacking for a second, which is great when they all focus on one big target.

Throw in the teleport with decent range (and Deep Strikes from your base) and they can really stir up trouble. Attach a commander unit to them for best results.
