From atop macabre conveyances known as Bloodseeker Palanquins, the Sanguinarchs refine the art of blood-blending. In battle, they violently exsanguinate worthy champions, using their ichor in crimson concoctions to invigorate their vampiric kin.

This warscroll can be used in the following warscroll battalions:
• Red Banqueters
This unit can attempt to cast
in your hero phase
and attempt to unbind
1 spell in the enemy hero phase.
This unit’s spectral host is armed with Spectral Claws and Blades.
The Hunger: Those who bear the Soulblight curse constantly crave blood and are empowered by feasting upon their foes.
Each time this unit fights, after all of its attacks have been resolved, you can heal
up to a number of wounds allocated to this unit equal to the number of wounds and mortal wounds
caused by those attacks that were allocated to enemy units (to a maximum of 6).
A Promising Concoction: Sanguinarchs are obsessed with crafting the finest ichorous blends and can further refine such rich pickings to bolster the strength of both themselves and their lackeys.
The first time an enemy HERO
is slain by an attack made by this unit, for the rest of the battle, add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of melee weapons used by friendly VAMPIRE
units while they are wholly within 12" of this unit, and you can carry out 2 different heroic actions
with this unit at the start of the hero phase
instead of 1.
Wail of the Damned: Unnerving howls follow this carriage wherever it roams. Should an enemy get close enough, the spectral host unleashes a deafening wail that tears the soul apart.
In your shooting phase
, roll a dice for each enemy unit within range of this unit’s Wail of the Damned ability. The range of this unit’s Wail of the Damned ability is shown on its damage table
. On a 4+, that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds
Blood Siphon: With a contemptuous gesture, the Sanguinarch calls forth a torrent of blood from their victim’s eyes, nose and mouth.

of 6 and a range of 12". If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy HERO
within range and visible to the caster, and roll a dice. On a 1-2, the target suffers 1 mortal wound
