These towering constructs are made of wraithbone, with powerful Eldar spirits entombed within, meaning this massive Wraithblade variant can only be guided by revered Eldar heroes.
“Though the constructs themselves aren’t scarce, Eldar souls able to pilot them are,” says the official blurb. “Despite the looming danger of losing their souls to the Warp in defeat, fighting as a Wraithlord allows the Eldar hero within to continue shaping their legacy – even in death.
“A Wraithlord can provide a strong front line and engage enemy troops with a quick charge into battle. Lunging through the opposing line with Glaive Charge will scatter carefully-placed squads like flies. Once in close combat, the Wraithlord can deliver a flurry of fatal blows with Critical Strike.”
The giant unit is known for its high health, strong melee and effectiveness against vehicles.
