You may be looking for one of these:

Vengeance - During your Maintenance Phase, if one or more models in a unit with Vengeance were damaged by enemy attacks during the last round, each model in the unit can advance 3" and make one basic melee attack. Edit description
Righteous Vengeance - If a friendly Faction model dies within 5" of this model, next turn this model gets a free 3" move and melee attack during the maintenance phase. Edit description
Swift Vengeance - If one or more friendly warrior models were destroyed or removed from play by enemy attacks while within 5" of this model during your opponent's last turn, during your Maintenance Phase this model can advance 3" and make one basic melee attack. Edit description
Retaliation - If a model with Retaliation was damaged by an enemy attack during the last round, during your Maintenance Phase it can advance up to 3" and make one basic melee attack. Edit description

These 4 abilities are essentially the same ability, the difference being:

  • Vengeance is found on units and triggers when a model in the unit dies
  • Righteous Vengeance is found on independent models and triggers when a nearby faction friend dies.
  • Swift Vengeance is found on independent models and triggers when a nearby faction or non-faction friend dies.
  • Retaliation is on a single model and triggers when itself is damaged.

Rules Clarification : Vengeance and/or Righteous Vengeance and/or Retaliation and/or Swift Vengeance and/or Tantrum     (Edit)

  • Vengeance moves do not have to be towards an enemy model.
  • You can choose to not move, but still get the attack. One is not conditional on the other.
  • When resolving Vengeance, move all models in the unit before making any attacks. (Infernal Ruling)
    • If you have more than one unit with Vengeance, move all of unit A then complete all of unit A's attacks, before starting to move unit B.
  • Vengeance is not an activation. It does not prevent the unit from activating and acting normally later in the turn.
  • Stationary and knocked down models may not perform Vengeance moves nor attacks.
  • Out of formation models cannot make attacks.
  • Due to the way it is worded Vengeance can be "inherited" by unit attachments that do not actually have the Vengeance ability themselves. For instance, a Soulless Escort attached to the Spears of Scyrah.
    • If anyone is damaged, including the attachment, everyone in the unit gets to trigger Vengeance.
    • But if everyone is killed except the attachment, then he doesn't get to trigger Vengeance because the rule is "no longer on the table".
  • Triggers
    • Only enemy attacks trigger Vengeance. There are plenty of ways enemies can damage you without attacking you (such as Electro Leap) and these will not trigger Vengeance.
    • If a CA has Granted: Vengeance then only models in formation have it. However, models that are damaged while out of formation can trigger Vengeance, they just will not benefit from it. (Locked thread)
