The Akhelian Kings are the military leaders of the Idoneth Deepkin. Atop a quick-moving Deepmare mount the king directs the aelven phalanxes, using tactical knowledge gleaned from a long life of raids and war. More than just an inspiring presence, an Akhelian King is a peerless blade master who is only too willing to fight from the front or lead the Idoneth charge.

Battlefield Role: Leader
An Akhelian King is a single model. In one hand they wield either a Bladed Polearm or Greatsword, and they hold a King’s Shield in the other. A light Falchion is strapped to their back, which they can use instead of their King’s Shield. Each rides a mighty Deepmare that savages the King’s enemies with its Fanged Jawand Talons, and batters them with its Lashing Tails.
Akhelian Kings can fly
Deepmare Horn: Every Deepmare has a spiral horn upon its head, which it uses to gore the foe when it charges into combat.

In the combat phase

Lordof Tides: At the King’s command his warriors will attack with unrelenting fury if the tide is high.
You can use this command ability
if this model is your general and the High Tide ability from the Tides of Death
table applies for the battle round. If you do so, pick a friendly IDONETH DEEPKIN unit wholly within 12" of your general. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of melee weapons
used by that unit until your next hero phase
