A Lord-Celestant on Dracoth is a single model armed with either a Tempestos Hammer, a Thunderaxe, a Lightning Hammer, or a Stormstrike Glaive. They can also carry a Sigmarite Thundershield.
This model’s Dracoth attacks with its Claws and Fangs.
Lightning Hammer: The shockwave effect of a lightning hammer connecting with the foe stuns those in close proximity.
If the unmodified hit roll
for an attack made with a Lightning Hammer is 6, that attack inflicts 2 mortal wounds
on the target in addition to its normal damage. If a unit suffers any mortal wounds in this way, it cannot pile in
later that phase.
Intolerable Damage: When a Dracoth catches its prey, there is often little left of the victim.
If the unmodified wound roll
for an attack made with a Dracoth’s Claws and Fangs is 6, that attack has a Damage characteristic of D6 instead of 1.
Sigmarite Thundershield: Thundershields store storm energy, unleashing it when struck with sufficient force to blast those attempting to attack.
If the unmodified save roll
for an attack made with a melee weapon that targets this unit is 6, the attacking unit suffers 1 mortal wound
after all of its attacks have been resolved.
Stormstrike Glaive: By lowering a stormstrike glaive and wielding it as a lance, a Lord-Celestant can bring down the mightiest foes.
Add 2 to the Damage characteristic of this model’s Stormstrike Glaive if this model made a charge move
in the same turn.
Storm Breath: Dracoths can unleash the power of Sigmar’s storm from within their maws.

Tempestos Hammer: With the momentum of the charge behind it, the impact of a tempestos hammer can fell a rampaging Ghorgon.

in the same turn.
Thunderaxe: In the capable hands of a Lord-Celestant, a thunderaxe draws on celestial energies until it crackles with barely contained power.
Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of this model’s Thunderaxe for each other friendly Stormcast Eternal unit wholly within 9" of this model when the attack is made.
Lord of the Host: A Lord-Celestant is a trusted and respected leader. Their presence steels the souls of those who fight nearby.
