Guardian Idol

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

Guardian Idols are arcane statues used by the Cities of Sigmar and Stormcast Eternals to form arcane shields around settlements ranging from massive Free Cities to Stormkeeps and Sigmarite Strongpoints.[1a][2a]

Function

These statues are raised around the perimeter of the settlement and when powered by geomantic energy the idols erect a spiritual barrier that protects the settlement from arcane threats such as daemons and gheists. [1a][3]

Guardian Idols are among the prefabricated objects carried by Dawnbringer Crusaders and are placed around Sigmarite Strongpoints where they rely on a Nexus Syphon for power.[1a][3] Stormkeeps also use Guardian Idols with the idols used by the Dawnbringers themselves being based on the statues defending the Perspicarium.[2a]

Free Cities are defended by larger and vastly more powerful Guadian Idols with the Idols of the Greywater Fastness even being capable of repelling artillery strikes.[4a]
