The Antakari

Special Rules:

Steel Resolve: All Antakari models are severely tolerant, able to fight without distraction with impeccable resolve. They are not, however, immune to the terrors of the world, and are affected by psychology in all other instances except for when they charge, or are charged.

Antakari: The Antakari are semi-daemon, magical in nature yet of mortal birth. As a result, all Antakari models and units have Magic Resistance 1, a 6+ Ward Save, and are immune to killing blow.

Battery: This unit is deployed at the start of the game as normal, but may not move, under any circumstances, except when fleeing from combat. They count as war machines and infantry. Battery Units may fire their weapons twice at long range, or once at short. They may always stand and shoot.

Dominance of Will: Such is the ravaging strength and mental presence of this character, that all those around rally to his side, and his opponents quake in fear or are stricken with pain. This character is your general, and his leadership range is 15”, all enemy units in combat with this character take break tests on Stubborn 5.

Aura Field: A unit or model with an Aura Field cannot march, cannot be march blocked, and cannot move through any difficult terrain of any description. An Aura Field gives a 3+ ward save, and renders the owner immune to poisoned attacks, killing blow and flaming weapons/attacks.

Lords

Blade Singer - 255 Points.

An ancient embodiment of weaponry and war, the very rage and anger of the world. A humanoid figure, clad in long swirling robes with tendrils and swirling trails that floats at speed across the earth, feet barely touching the ground, like a hummingbird of destruction and death. Such is the strength and skill of the Blade Singer, that even a Bloodthirster fears this maelstrom of steel.

Autarion - 300 Points.

An Autarion is the guardian of the world's knowledge, embodying the connectivity and tactical prowess of the world's races. He is the governing drive, the unified presence, the role the blade plays. They are often glowing humanoids with transparent bodies that appear almost ethereal. From their outstretched hands they can summon dense spheres of matter, tearing through swathes of the World's Enemies with ease.

Core

Dusk Riders - 20 Points Each

Mimicking octopi, jellyfish, and other many limbed creatures, the Dusk Riders are inhuman, small spherical bodies which glow in the limelight following by long whiskery limbs which lacerate and flay their foes. They hover midair, flickering about the battlefield sometimes as jet as night, others, a translucent grey.

Harriers - 30 Points Each

Harriers are great winged bird like creatures, the governors of the sky, and the Antakari vision of hope. They appear translucent, as much of their kin, but are glowing and radiant, like magnesium on wing. You could describe them as beautiful, until their searing heat tears at your soul.

Callon Guard - 12 Points Each

As the Dusk Riders flicker, and the Harriers glide, the Callon, the Guardians of Hope, march stead fast across the battlefield, like relentless, incandescant suits of armour. Their great blades glimmer, humming with electricity with each and every thundering strike.

Special

Aggrell - 30 Points Each

The Aggrell are curious things, they are humanoid, like the Autarion, yet they are encassed in a permanent disruption field, that casts aside all forms of energy, yet lets it through to the outside with ease. Laying down darting balls of energy as supporting fire, these slow, levitating orbs strike fear into the most resilent of foes, as no armour offers protection against anti-matter.

So, this is my current project, besides painting Skinks. I'm still working on unit types, and the rest of the Aiks, they need refining and tweaking to eradicate broken combinations and the like, and there will eventually be fluff descriptions for all the aiks, special characters, background iformation and the rules and spells for the Lore of Blades.

Essentially, other unit suggestions and the like would be tremendous help.

A short summary of the Antakari:

They are the embodiment of the world's inner soul, the Gaia of Warhammer. They're a small, incredibly elite force that forms from the planet's will when it's life is in danger, and it needs to intervene to guide the events of the world away from her. So hence most of them being translucent and made of energy.

Let 'em rip!

But they've 4 Poisoned attacks a piece, which can deliver 28 poisoned attacks when 7 to five models frontage. I think that makes up for it :D
