Army abilities are active abilities that can be called upon by the player controlling an army in battles. They were introduced in Total War: Warhammer II. Army abilities are distinct from spells and character abilities which are only usable by specific characters (and if that character dies, then those spells/abilities are no longer available). However many of them operate like spells - as vortexes, summons or bombardments.

Most army abilities are only available in battles in the campaign: not in multiplayer, custom battles or the laboratory.
