Dawn of War Wiki

The Apothecary is a Heavy Infantry squad leader unit for the Space Marines introduced in Dawn of War.


  • Heavy infantry.
  • Healer unit.
  • Enhances regeneration rates of nearby infantry.


The Apothecary can be attached to a squad like a commander unit. The unit does not improve the squad's morale or fighting capacity, but boosts the squad's health regeneration (and that of other nearby units). Apothecaries have a chainsword and can engage in melee combat when needed, but does not provide a combat bonus like a commander. Apothecaries are cheap, costs no Squad cap and are trained much quicker than other units. As a result, there's no reason not to train the maximum number of them.
