About this deal

At the heart of every Asuryani craftworld sits the Avatar of Khaine, its own incarnation of the Bloody-Handed God of the Aeldari, Kaela Mensha Khaine. Daemon gives it a 5+ invulnerable save, which is on the low end for anything that we want to qualify as a combat unit, but Molten Body also gives it a 5+ “feel no pain”-style effect, so it can shrug off about half of all incoming firepower one way or another. It’s hard to make an almost 200 point model work when most armies can kill him on the turn they decide to try to. e. the fragment of warp power) is actually rooted in the Craftworld's superstructure, and it is here that the fragment flees to/is banished to if the physical form of the Avatar is destroyed. The little belts around his torso are also quite fiddly, particularly where they join to the chest piece.

Marko uses lush purples and fluorescent reds to create an eldritch, shimmering contrast that really sells the supernatural power of this fearsome warrior. If he had just 1 or 2 tweaks to his rules he would be a fantastic, but unfortunately 40k is now a game where the elite units feature D-weapons, stomps, speed, and/or great resilience. Beyond heads and weapons there’s no other build options, though; you aren’t going to be posing the model any differently without some real conversion work. For your core detachment I think either the Guardian Stormhost or the Guardian Battlehost is a solid choice. But that’s only half of the truth, as there’ve been two Forge World exclusive Avatar models released around the 4th Edition Eldar codex, one of which I painted for my Iybraesil collection.The new Avatar isn’t that huge, definitely a bit smaller than most Greater Daemons, but taller than a Wraithlord still. Ynnead would then have the power to destroy Slaanesh forever in a final battle, thus correcting the mistakes which led to the Fall of the Aeldari and allowing the race to be reincarnated into a universe free of the taint of Chaos.

Unlike damage inflicted by normal attacks, excess damage from mortal wounds is not lost if the damage can be allocated to another model.I wasn’t able to assemble the model yet, but I’ve taken this picture of my Forge World Avatar, the new Guardians and a Wraithlord, so you should get a good impression of his size. This massive blade is many feet long, and shrieks as it tastes mortal flesh, wailing and crying and hurling murderous bolts of psychic force as the Avatar strides to war and reaps a brutal tally at close quarters. Additionally, the Avatar’s divine weapon, the Wailing Doom, can be assembled in one of three forms: a colossal sword, a vicious axe, or a sweeping spear, each adorned with eldritch runes of immense power. The Young King's soul is either used as a power source or a binding point for power drawn from the Warp.
