Warhammer reveals angelic new Stormcast Eternals

Having fought in the Age of Sigmar since the first ever starter set, the Stormcast Eternals Prosecutors get shiny new Thunderstrike armor.

Games Workshop has revealed yet more new Stormcast Eternals models for Age of Sigmar 4th edition. This time it’s a new kit for the Prosecutors, Stormcast Eternals borne aloft by “flickering flame-like wings”, wielding spears and javelins.

The first kit for the Prosecutors was released in the very first Age of Sigmar Starter Set. AoS first edition was set during the battles of the Realmgate Wars, when Stormcast Eternals surged forth from the Realm of the Heavens, Azyr, to conquer the Mortal Realms, and the Prosecutors were at the vanguard of the fight. Four editions later, they’re rocking a new model design and new lore.

According to the Warhammer Community post that reveals the models, the Prosecutors were “uniquely positioned” to be caught in the trap of the Cursed Skies that were created by the Chaos prince Be’lakor. This nasty spell captures and tortures the souls of Stormcast as they attempt to return to Azyr after death, and as a result the Prosecutors have suffered from “traumatic” reforgings more than most other Stormcast.

It seems that all the Prosecutors are now part of the Ruination chamber, joining the Reclusians previewed two weeks ago. These Stormcast have become divorced from humanity by their experiences, but they’re “so hardened that even the Ruinous Powers can struggle to find purchase, and some of the most destructive energies in the Mortal Realms often have no effect on them”.

That has in-game effects. The article reveals a Once-Per-Turn ability that can be used by any Ruination Chamber unit in an army. When they’re targeted by an enemy non-Core ability, they can resist it on a roll of 4+.

GW has also revealed a snippet of rules for the Prosecutors. As ‘Heralds of Righteousness’ they roll an extra D6 when charging into combat, to a maximum of 3D6. The wording on that ability suggests there will be other ways players can manipulate the number of dice rolled for charges.
