This Special Skill represents the user's ability to transform into a different type of trooper with its own Attributes and Skills. The most illustrative example is a Dogface's transformation into a Dog-Warrior.

TRANSMUTATION AUTOMATIC SKILL
Obligatory.
REQUIREMENTS
  • For this Special Skill to activate, the user must lose his first point of Wounds/STR.
EFFECTS
  • The user substitutes his Troop Profile with the alternative version indicated on the Army List.
  • Replace the user's model with his alternate form at the end of the Order in which he lost the first point of his Wounds/STR Attribute. From that moment on, the user adopts his alternate form's Troop Profile.
  • If the user does not have an alternate form model, place a Transmuted Marker (TRANSMUTED), or the specific Marker required by the user's alternate form, next to the user's model to represent his new status.
  • For example, use a Transmuted Marker (TRANSMUTED) to mark that a Fractaa has adopted her Survival Form.
  • If the user lost more than one point of his Wounds/STR Attribute during the Order, deduct the remainder from the new profile at the end of the Order.


Transmutation example
Mikhail, a stone-cold, badass Dogface, receives three simultaneous hits. He makes his three ARM rolls and fails one of them, so he loses 1 point from his current Wounds Attribute. His player replaces the Dogface model with a Dog-Warrior model, and Mikhail swaps his Troop Profile for a Dog-Warrior's, which comes into being with Wounds 2.
Imagine the fierce Mikhail had failed two of his ARM rolls and lost two points of his Wounds Attribute. Mikhail would then subtract one single point of Wounds from his Dogface profile, replace his profile with the Dog-Warrior form, and subtract the other point from the Wounds Attribute of his new profile. Mikhail is still standing, but his current Wounds Attribute is 1 instead of a Dog-Warrior's initial 2.
If Mikhail had had the misfortune to fail his three ARM Rolls, he would suffer the loss of three points of his Wounds Attribute. Mikhail would then subtract one single point of Wounds from his Dogface profile, replace his profile with the Dog-Warrior form, and subtract the remaining two points from the Wounds Attribute of his new profile. Mikhail's Dog-Warrior profile is left with Wounds 0 instead of the original 2 (2-2=0 Wounds), so he would enter the Unconscious state, represented by an Unconscious Marker next to the Dog-Warrior model.
Despite numerous open avenues of research, modern science has yet to crack the secrets of the radical physiological changes undergone by creatures capable of Transmutation. For the transformation to take place, the subject must experience severe stress, such as that produced by physical trauma. The combination of pain and fear results in a discharge of adrenaline and the CTH hormone responsible for fight or flight responses. This discharge is orders of magnitude more intense than that of normal human subjects, and sets off a cascade of cellular reactions that completely transforms the subject's physique.
