About

Unit Description

For the Empire! For Sigmar! For GLORY!

Historical Description

The Emperor is Karl Franz, Prince of Altdorf and Elector Count of Reikland. Karl Franz is said to be the greatest statesman the Old World has ever seen. He is also a military genius and a valiant general. The Emperor frequently takes personal command of his soldiers, wielding Ghal Maraz, the fabled hammer of Sigmar, like the Warrior God of old, smiting enemies of the Empire with every blow. Karl Franz often rides to battle on the back of Deathclaw, reputed to be the mightiest Imperial griffon that ever lived. A powerful bond exists between the beast and its master, one forged in countless battles and many adventures. During the Battle of Blood Keep, Deathclaw stood over the prone form of the wounded Emperor for three hours, slaying any who came near until the Reiksguard could hack a path to their fallen Lord.

Abilities

Foe-Seeker

There are those who wish nothing more than to be at the heart of battle, seeking foes to vanquish.

Stand Your Ground!

On the battlefield, the craven's path is an easy one, but for those champions that choose to stand? Fortune will surely favour them and their troops.

Hold the Line!

Those in command of the ranks will issue their orders with a ferocious bark, expecting instant obeisance.

Bloodroar

The mighty griffon lets out a blood-curdling roar, chilling his enemies.

Attributes

Can Cause Fear

This unit frightens all enemy units, reducing their leadership when nearby. It is also immune to fear. Fear penalties do not stack.

Can Cause Terror

This unit can cause terror, making its melee target rout for a short time. Units that cause terror are immune to terror and fear themselves.

Encourage

This unit provides a leadership bonus to nearby allies. Units within range of both the Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.

Strengths & Weaknesses

Armour-Piercing

The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.

Armoured

Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.

Duellist

This unit is best used to attack individual targets such as Lords or Heroes. As it can only damage very few individuals at a time, it is not suitable against hordes of weak enemies.

Causes Terror

This unit can cause terror, making its melee target rout for a short time. Units that cause terror are immune to terror and fear themselves.
