View Full Version : Blade of Shining Death

I'm putting together a Dwarf Army list, and I see in the Magic Weapon area something called the Blade of Shining Death. I thought Dwarfs didn't use magic weapons. So what's it from?

Regular Dwarf characters do not take magic items - . I can only assume that this reference has popped up in some other context - army builder perhaps.

Google points in this direction: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=%22Blade+of+Shining+Death%22

Sounds like the Power Sword, Power Fist and Power Armour items from that Albion campaign...

Yep, I'm fairly sure that's one of the Albion items.

It is the reward the Dwarfs got from Albion. It is a Power Sword, basically. It hints at the old fluff link between 40K and Fantasy.

To tell the truth, there are much better options that the Dwarfs can take, IMO.

Only really worth taking to get a second ignore AS magic item in the list; otherwise, forget it.
