Vanquisher

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

Vanquishers are members of the Redeemer Conclaves clad in Thunderstrike Armour.[1a]

Role

Vanquishers specialize in offense unlike the more defensive Vindictors. Vanquishers are chosen from the Stormcasts that have displayed exemplary martial prowess and a flair in dealing death; thus, it is rare for a Stormcast to be reforged as a Vanquisher for their first reforging. After being chosen, they are granted a Celestial Greatsword that they must honour for the rest of their life, even if they diverge to another path.[1a]

They are the most individualistic of the Redeemers, fighting in loose formations. Each retinue also has its own favored sword kata. In battle, they launch daring counter-charges when the enemy is pinned down by their more defensive Liberator and Vindictor cousins and have gained a reputation of being braggarts - although their lethality is undisputed.[1a]

Equipment

Vanquishers are armed with Celestial Greatswords, each embedded with a celestium shard. Vanquishers will meditate on the realmstone shard within their swords for days until their spirit becomes one with that of the sword. The celestium in the sword gives fragmentary visions that guide Vanquishers to turn aside feints and penetrate enemy guards.[1a]
