Games Workshop Warhammer 40k: Knight-Vexillor

Our Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review by: Dad

The Knight-Vexillor is a great support Hero for your Stormcast Eternals armies in games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar.  The Knight-Vexillor’s sculpting is gorgeous and fits in well with the Stormcast Eternals esthetic.   Games Workshop has done a great job, as usual, designing the look of the Stormcast Eternals.

The Knight-Vexillor can then either take a Meteoric Standard or a Pennant of the Stormbringer.  The Meteoric Standard allows the Knight-Vexillor to call down a fireball during your hero phase by picking a point with twenty-four inches of the model.  Every enemy unit within 2D6” of that point suffers D3 mortal wounds.  This is a great ability to soften up some frontline units or a hero ball.

The Pennant of the Stormbringer allows the Knight-Vexillor to teleport a friendly unit to any point on the battlefield as long as it is more than nine inches from enemy units.  Again the model can only use this ability once per battle.  This ability can allow you to suddenly pop a unit behind enemy lines or to a previously out of reach objective giving your Stormcast Eternals some great flexibility to redeploy mid battle.

No matter which one you take, after you use the once per battle ability, the Knight-Vexillor can still give units charge rerolls with their Icon of War ability as long as they are within eighteen inches of the Knight-Vexillor. The Knight-Vexillor is fairly decent in combat himself as well with four attacks hitting on a four plus and wounding on a three plus and one damage each. The Knight-Vexillor only costs one hundred and twenty points in pitched battles making it a great filler hero for rounding out a list where all of your other needs are met.  Check him out for your Stormcast Eternals army in your games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
