The Emperor of Mankind
Special Rules: Superhuman Presence, The Hope of Mankind, Master-Psyker, Golden Light, Psychic Empowerment, God Amongst Men, Primarch, Gargantuan Creature ((except for movement, outnumbering, and the end of the assault rule).
Wargear: Offensive and Defensive Grenades, The Eagle's Talon, The Flaming Sword.
Superhuman Presence: The Emperor is the pinnacle of all that Mankind can hope to be - impossibly beautiful, flawless in form. Such is his presence on the field of battle that any friendly model with LOS to the Emperor counts as Fearless, gains +1 A, and may use his leadership value for leadership tests.
The Eagle's Talon: A mastery of craftsmanship, the Eagle's Talon is one of the symbols of the Emperor's power as much as it is a potent weapon in its own right. It makes the Emperor's attacks reroll to wound in close-combat.
The Flaming Sword: A blade constantly wreathed in arcing, billowing fire, the Emperor's favored blade is an extension of both his arm and mind. As such, the Emperor's attacks in close-combat hit on a 3+, reroll to hit, and inflict instant death. In addition, he may shoot out a blast of flame once per turn as a normal shooting attack with the following profile.
S: 9 AP: 1 Assault 1, Blast 24"
The Hope of Mankind: The Emperor represent what every man aspires to be - he is the collective Might of Humanity in a physical shell, and is the shepherd of Mankind's hopes and dreams. Any friendly model within 24" of the Emperor may pass or fail leadership tests should they wish to without a leadership test. However, the Emperor is the physical embodiment of the hopes and wishes of mankind - should he fall in battle, all friendly models of the Imperium (Sisters of Silence, Space Marines, Imperial Guard, Adeptus Mechanicus) will suffer a -1 A and -1 ld penalty for one turn, as well as falling back 2d6 inches. The Emperor's body counts as an objective for the remainder of the game.
Master-Psyker: The Emperor is renowned for his blazing psychic might. Indeed, it is the light of his mind that allows the ships of Humanity to traverse the stars. The Emperor may cast 5 psychic powers a turn, may choose different targets for each spell, and automatically passes all psychic tests.
Golden Light: The Emperor is constantly shrouded in a flickering corona of golden light that shrouds him from his foes. All hits against the Emperor are made at -1 on the to-hit rolls.
Psychic Empowerment: Any spell cast by the Emperor other than those specific to him are improved, strengthened by his incredible Psychic might. All spells have their Strength and AP improved by 1, their range increased by 6", and have their number of shots increased by D3. Any spell using a template will have its template size increased by 1, and they do not scatter.
God Amongst Men: The Emperor may make both his armor and invulnerable save, and neither of them can ever be ignored.
Psychic Powers: The Emperor has access to all Imperial spells, in addition to the following powers.
Golden Gaze: The Emperor directs his fiery gaze towards his enemies, beams of Psychic light shooting forth that burns through even the toughest armor with incredible ease.
S: 8 AP: 1 2D6 Armor Penetration Assault 5 24"
Machine, Heal Thyself: With this simple command, the Emperor places his palm against the armor of a vehicle. Circuits knit back together, armor plates bend back into shape, and weapon systems are restored. Any friendly vehicle within base contact of the Emperor has all damages repaired (short of destroyed vehicles), and Super-Heavy vehicles recover up to 3 Structure Points in addition to having damages repaired.
Tempest of Light: With a flick of his wrist, the Emperor brings a sphere of burning light into being that crisps flesh as much as it blinds the eyes.
S: 8 AP: 4 Assault 1, 7", Pinning 42"
Fiery Nova: A wave of crackling, immaterial flames bursts outwards in all directions from the Emperor to destroy his enemies but leave his allies unharmed. Center the 10" template over the Emperor and use the following profile.
S: 8 AP: 1 Assault 1, 10" Blast Centered Over Emperor
The Wrathful Eagle: The Light surrounding the Emperor burns even brighter than normal, and soon takes on the silhouette of a great Eagle before he blazes forward in a frightening burst of speed, burning through enemies, tanks, and buildings, and energy fields alike. Ignores invulnerable saves.
S: 10 AP: 1 Assault 1, Lance 18+4D6"
Storm of the Emperor's Wrath: With a wordless snarl, the Emperor conjures a crackling, serpentine spear of psionic lightning - the earliest symbol of his great power - that he casts into his enemies. This snaking chain of electrical energy jumps from enemy to enemy, burning away skin and charring bone. Target an enemy unit. Every model in the unit takes an automatic wound that ignores armor saves, and any vehicle takes D6 Penetrating hits, and is automatically stunned. In addition, after all wounds have been resolved, it jumps to another unit behind the target unit that is within 12" of the unit before it. This process repeats until the lightning has gone out of 48" range of the Emperor.
May bring a bodyguard of 6 Custodes Centurions or 4 Custodes Captains
Moves, Runs, and Assaults 9", as does any unit the Emperor is attached to.
May Pass or Fail Leadership Tests at will.
