Praetors are exemplary bodyguards, linked to their assigned wards at an arcane, spiritual level. This connection allows the Praetor to accept the wounds of their charge unto themselves, keeping Sigmar’s champions hale and whole.

Each model in a Praetors unit is armed with a Soulguard's Halberd.
CHAMPION: Soul-forged Guardians: Praetors are willing to lay down their lives to protect their soul-bonded charge; upon death, heavenly light spills from these noble champions, cleansing doubt and weakness from their commanders.
1 model in this unit can be a Praetor-Prime. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of that model's Soulguard's Halberd.
At the start of the first battle round, before determining who has the first turn, you can pick 1 friendly STORMCAST ETERNALS HERO
on the battlefield to which this unit will be bound (the same HERO
cannot have more than 1 unit of PRAETORS
bound to it at any time).
Before you allocate a wound
or mortal wound
to that HERO
, or instead of making a ward roll
for a wound or mortal wound that would be allocated to that HERO
, if that HERO
is within 3" of this unit, you can roll a dice.
On a 1 -2, that wound or mortal wound is allocated to that HERO
as normal. On a 3-4, that wound or mortal wound is allocated to this unit instead of that HERO
. On a 5-6, that wound or mortal wound is negated.
