Lord Adual


Download this unit entry as a PDF

There are many secrets in the galaxy, but few are as important or have as dire consequences for the galaxy as the secret Adual currently pursues. This search has driven Adual to genocide and into making pacts with foul xenos species, and yet there the Tzeentchian daemon prince has been unable to gain access to the shadowy dimension known as the Eldar Webway.

Should he ever gain access to the Webway, his forces would be able to strike virtually anywhere within the Imperium, including Terra itself.

The Tzeentchian Lord himself is a hunched figure, his twisted face hidden behind a blue helmet adorned with two large twisting horns. He also bears the Gauntlets of Tarsiss, ancient weapons which act as ritually significant instruments of power and they take the form of bladed gauntlets.

Gauntlets of Tarsiss

Adual wields a set of archaic weapons dating back to before the rediscovery of Tarsiss III and although they have dulled over the millennia, they remain potent weapons in Adualís hands, as they were designed to augment the wielderís psychic potential.

The Gauntlets themselves have raised a number of questions to which the Adeptus Mechanicus of Mars would dearly like to know the answers to.

Unique Wargear:

Gauntlets of Tarsiss: Adual managed to retrieve these from a deep rooted vault following the Tarsiss III Exterminatus.

In battle, the Gauntlets of Tarsiss counts as a Force weapon that adds +2 to Adual's strength and counts as two power weapons (granting him +1 Attack for having two close combat weapons).

Unique Psychic Powers:

Weaver of Fate: Adual is a potent sorcerer and is able to guide the fire of his brethren with devastating results.

Adual may attempt to use this power in the Shooting phase, instead of firing another weapon, or using his bolt of change.

This power is cast on a Thousand Sons unit within 12”. For this shooting phase, all bolt weapons (bolters and bolt pistols) count as AP1.

Special Rules:

The Changing Wind: Lord Adual is a powerful sorcerer and one of the most valuable pawns to his patron, Lord Tzeentch. Placed in his command by his master, Adual can call upon large numbers of rubric marines and dangerous sorcerers to aid him.

If Adual is included in the army, the army must include one unit of Thousand Sons bought at the normal cost. This unit must be at least ten models in strength.
