High King Volturnos is a living legend, a warrior whose life of heroic deeds has spanned the ages. Riding to battle atop Uasall, a prince amongst Deepmares, the High King’s presence upon the battlefield inspires not only the Ionrach enclave, but all Idoneth Deepkin. With his sword, the Astra Solus or ‘blade of light’, Volturnos can cleave through any foe as he leads the Idoneth to victory.

Volturnos, High King of the Deep is a single model. In one hand he wields the Astra Solus, while the other holds the Cealith, the High King’s Shield. He rides a mighty Deepmare, Uasall, that savages his enemies with its Fanged Jawand Talons, and batters them with its Lashing Tails.

The Astra Solus: When swung, the Astra Solus leaves behind a scything blaze of light that pierces metals, sea monster scales and flesh with equal ease.
If a hit roll

The Crest of the High Kings: Volturnos rides to battle wearing the Crest of the High Kings, a majestic backbanner that reflects the inspirational importance of the High King to the Idoneth.
Add 1 to the Bravery characteristic of friendly IDONETH DEEPKIN units while they are wholly within 18" of this model.
Cealith, the High King’s Shield: Cealith is said to have been crafted by Teclis himself. However it was created, the mystical aura it projects guards the bearer against malign magics.
You can roll a dice if this model is affected by a spell. If you do so, on a 3+ the spell has no effect on this model (other units will be affected by the spell normally).

. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of melee weapons used by those units until your next hero phase
