Vanguard-Palladors ride upon Gryph-chargers that ride magical winds allowing them to appear as if from nowhere to tear the heart from the enemy battle line only to vanish once more before the foe can retaliate. It is this aspect of these creatures, combined with their hatred of Chaos, that makes the beasts such sought-after mounts.
Battles beyond counting have been won when all seemed lost by the sudden arrival of a host of Vanguard-Palladors. They are lightning-fast shock cavalry able to traverse entire battlefields in the blink of an eye and can react to the ebb and flow of war faster than even the Extremis Chambers. The Gryph-chargers tear at their prey with beak and claw, their blows able to pierce even armour plate, whilst their Stormcast riders level pinpoint attacks with boltstorm pistols and starstrike javelins and then move to seek fresh quarry before the bodies of their previous victims even fall to the ground.[2a]
