Necropolis Stalker

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

Necropolis Stalkers are four-faced and four-armed war giants that stand twice the height of Mortek infantry created by the Ossiarch Bonereapers to be used as shock troops. Each face of a Stalker’s quadrangular war-mask contains the essence of a legendary warrior forming a gestalt where each aspect of can assume control of the Stalker’s body at a moment’s notice. These aspects are created from the souls of weapon masters specialised in a form of fighting which has been greatly enhanced in death. Thus by merely rotating the head the Necropolis Stalker can change from an offensive style to a defensive style in a blink of an eye. [1]

Aspects

  • Blade-Strike Aspect: Created from the souls of aggressive yet highly controlled swordsmen and optimised towards offence. Consists of a quartet of blades weaving a net of razored metal that is all but impossible to evade and is useful when fighting multiple opponents.[1]
  • Blade-Parry Aspect: A defensive aspect that uses the reaction speed, economy of motion and riposte technique of a master fencer to create a bulwark of warding blades. Useful when fighting more martially skilled foes.[1]
  • Precision aspect: Observing the movement of foes with intense focus while they using feints to probe their defences before lancing a killing blade right into the heart. Useful when fighting more armoured opponents.[1]
  • Destroyer aspect: Using a martial style created from the most furious attackers, the Necropolis Stalkers hack through the defences of the foe with raw strength and savagery while sparks of hatred and death-lust flicker from the creatures’ eyes.[1]

Wargear

Necropolis Stalkers normally fight with a eight-foot-long spirit blade held in each upper arm that can bisect a human in a single blow. Their lower arms they hold nadirite daggers the size of bastard swords. Others, specially those that contain the spirits of warriors who favoured heavy blades in life, use Dread Falchions instead which are weapons empowered by so much spiritual force that they can cut through stone with a shriek of displaced energy.[1]
