Exalted Hero of Chaos

From Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Exalted Heroes are champions of the Slaves to Darkness who have begun to attract the notice of the gods but not yet risen to the rank of Chaos Lord. Each one of them is equal to a score of lesser men and the determination to gain godly favour sees them take on any challenge without hesitation. Exalted Heroes also attract warbands of followers seeking to bask in the champion’s reflected glory. Thus many Chaos Lords may attract them to serve in their hordes where they often act as enforcers for the Godsworn Overlord, leading their warriors on pillaging raids or using their martial skills to anchor a battleline. [1]

They believe that only by triumphing over the greatest foes can they achieve the greatest renown often dueling rival champions to prove their god’s supremacy and add the defeated champion’s warriors to their own warband. They loathe those who seek to oppose the gods of Chaos and they are are hacked down by the Exalted in a whirlwind of blows. After defeating the enemy commander the Exalted Hero will use a ritual dagger to carve out the enemy’s heart and hold the gory trophy aloft, beseeching the Dark Gods for a reward.[1]
