The sorcerous entity known as the Dreadful Visage is said to be a mask that once adorned Slaanesh’s own face during the Masquerade of the Palace Grandiose. On that fell night, it is said, the visage took on an evil sentience of its own, and it can be called forth to bring a measure of its wearer’s horrific aura into the Mortal Realms.
SUMMONING: This endless spell is summoned with a spell that has a casting value of 7 and a range of 12". If successfully cast, set up this endless spell wholly within range and visible to the caster, and more than 1" from all models, other endless spells and invocations. Only HEDONITES OF SLAANESH WIZARDS can attempt to summon this endless spell.
PREDATORY: This endless spell is a predatory endless spell. It can be moved up to 8" and can fly.
Flensing Tongues: Opening its soulsucking maw, the Dreadful Visage lets fly a plethora of hooked tongues that lash and flense the flesh of those nearby.
After this endless spell has moved, roll 6 dice for the closest unit within 6" of it. If more than 1 such unit is equally close, the commanding player can choose which unit to roll for. For each 4+, that unit suffers 1 mortal wound. If a unit suffers any mortal wounds from this ability that are not negated, the strikelast effect applies to that unit until the end of the following combat phase.
Terrifying Entity: Gibbering, howling and shrieking with cruel pleasure, the Dreadful Visage, destroys the will of Slaanesh’s enemies – while his worshippers find themselves energised by its discordant barrage of noise.
Subtract 1 from the Bravery characteristic of units while they are within 12" of this endless spell. Add 1 to the Bravery characteristic of SLAANESH units while they are within 12" of this endless spell instead of subtracting 1.
