Where their sibling adores physical excess, Synessa’s power lies in the manipulation of the mind. Even a glance at their splendour leaves those nearby enthralled, and the daemons of Slaanesh enter raptures of obedience at their every word.

Do not pick a target or use the attack sequence for an attack made with this model’s Staff of Slaanesh. Instead, pick 1 enemy unit within range of this model’s Staff of Slaanesh and visible to them. The opposing player must roll a dice for that unit.
If the roll is less than that unit’s Save characteristic but not a 6, that unit suffers D6 mortal wounds
. If the roll is equal to or greater than that unit’s Save characteristic but not a 6, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds. On a 6, nothing happens.
If this model issues a command to 1 friendly unit, that friendly unit can be anywhere on the battlefield as long as it is visible to this model (the range of the command ability
does not apply). If this model issues a command to more than 1 friendly unit, 1 of those friendly units can be anywhere on the battlefield as long as it is visible to this model (the range of the command ability still applies to the other units).
In addition, if this model successfully casts Whispers of Doubt
(see below) or Pavane of Slaanesh
(see Lore of Slaanesh
), the HERO affected by the spell can be anywhere on the battlefield as long as that HERO is visible to this model (the range of the spell does not apply).
Whispers of Doubt: The caster whispers words that reveal the enemy’s darkest desires, breaking their concentration and leaving them vulnerable to attack.
