This warscroll can be used in the following warscroll battalions:
• Teclian Vanguard
The Light of Eltharion is a named character that is a single model. He is armed with the Fangsword of Eltharion and the Celennari Blade, and he wears Spirit Armour.
Celennari Blade: This blade was forged by Teclis using Celennar’s scryer-stone ores. The lunar gem in its hilt allows the bearer to predict where an opponent will be most vulnerable.
At the start of the combat phase
, you can pick 1 enemy HERO within 3" of this model. If you do so, add 1 to the damage inflicted by successful attacks made with this model’s Celennari Blade that target that HERO in that phase.
Fangsword of Eltharion: The original Fangsword was a powerful heirloom of Eltharion’s mortal dynasty. The incarnation of the Fangsword wielded by the Light of Eltharion is crafted from sunmetal and has a solar jewel in its hilt, making it even mightier than the sword whose legacy it propagates.
Add 1 to wound rolls
for attacks made with this model’s Fangsword of Eltharion if this model made a charge move
in the same turn. In addition, if the unmodified wound roll for an attack made with this model’s Fangsword of Eltharion is 6, that attack inflicts 1 mortal wound
on the target in addition to any normal damage.
Searing Darts of Light: Darts of brilliance hurtle from the Light of Eltharion’s outstretched fingers, shooting through nearby enemies.
In your shooting phase
, you can pick 1 enemy unit within 18" of this model that is visible to them and roll a dice. On a 1, nothing happens. On a 2-4, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds
. On a 5+, that unit suffers D6 mortal wounds.
Spirit Armour: Instead of protecting a body of flesh and blood, this armour houses the undying spirit of the mighty warrior Eltharion. Though animated by the Light of Eltharion, it is essentially hollow – even a penetrating thrust may simply pass through the glowing form within.
(positive or negative) when making save rolls
for attacks that target this model. In addition, halve the damage inflicted by attacks made with missile weapons
or melee weapons
that target this model (rounding up).
Supreme Swordmaster: The Light of Eltharion is a consummate warrior and one of the greatest swordsmen of all time.
Ignore negative modifiers
when making hit rolls
for attacks made by this model. In addition, if the unmodified hit roll for an attack made by this model is 6, that attack scores 2 hits on the target instead of 1. Make a wound and save roll
for each hit.
Unflinching Valour: The Light of Eltharion can communicate telepathically with the warriors of the Lumineth Realm-lords, instilling them with his own dour certainty and unwavering courage.
You can use this command ability
at the start of the battleshock phase
. If you do so, pick 1 friendly model with this command ability. Until the end of that phase, all friendly LUMINETH REALM-LORDS
units wholly within 24" of that model are treated as having a Bravery characteristic of 10.
